Our world today is un like any other time in our history. When we look at our ancestors and their way of life we see how connected they were to the earth, to their food, and to each other. Today we connect more through facebook, eat food from boxes, and are abusing the very source that provides us with nourishment, the earth. We live in a world where most of us know someone close to us dealing with diseases such as cancer, autoimmune disease, and even chronic pain. So what’s changed? Why are we getting sicker when we live in an age where information is at our fingertips and science has made leaps like no other time?
The Times magazine has called Inflammation “The Silent Killer”, and it all stems from here. Our food is treated with chemicals foreign to the soil and to our bodies. Herbacides and other chemicals used to “treat” our food contain Glyphosate, a chemical that binds pathways in plants where they would produce nutrients such as Tryptophan that aid in our well- being. Not only does it block certain pathways but it also creates gaps in the tight junctions along our intestine causing what has been termed as “Leaky Gut Syndrome”. This inflammation is a result of acidification of the tissues, and this acidification is a result of poor quality food which results in poor digestive health causing a variety of ailments.
So then why IV?
These basic nutrients that we expect to receive from our food sources just aren’t there. The Globe and Mail and CTV few years back wrote an article on soil depletion and how modern farming methods have affected the nutrient content in our food by 50%! So stack on top of that stress, technology, and our fast paced modern day living and it leaves you with a depleted and undernourished individual.
These IV nutrients can bypass the gut so your body doesn’t have to work hard at breaking it down, instead it is fast tracked into your cells where they are needed for optimal health. Each IV is unique and catered to the needs of the patients. You can treat anything from hormone imbalances, skin disorders to colds and flus and chronic pain.
We fully believe that food is our medicine but the wrong food can also be our poison. These IV are not to replace the relationship we create with food that is nourishing our bodies, instead they are an adjunct to allow you to receive optimal levels of nutrients for optimal health and wellness.
