Intravenous (IV) therapy is a safe and effective method of delivering therapeutic doses of vitamins and minerals directly to into the circulatory system.
Based on the individual needs of her patients, Dr. Bean formulates a variation of the Myers cocktail with a combination of vitamins and minerals with a range of B vitamins such as Methylfolate, Methylcobalamin or Hydroxycobalmin, B6, B5, B3, along with magnesium, calcium, minerals and specific amino acids
The main advantage of IV therapy is that it bypasses the absorption required in the digestive tract. Through the use of IV therapy the nutrients are taken up or rather absorbed much more quickly than if it had been taken oral.
Vitamin absorption issues are extremely common and can be caused by a poor diet, birth control pill use, antibiotic use, low hydrochloric acid, stress, dysbiosis (parasites to bacterial overgrowth), to digestive disorders (such as SIBO, celiac, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis).
Dr. Bean will require you to have updated laboratory work done at least 6 weeks before doing any IV. Each of the requested labs can indicate you have current deficiencies, which will reflect what Dr. Bean uses for your IV. In addition, your current laboratory values indicate if you should wait to have an IV and focus on nutritional support instead.
