Faster, Quicker, Stronger: Intravenous Nutrient Therapy for Optimal Health
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I am privileged with education and experience using a multitude of treatment options for my patients, including various natural medicines as well as conventional medicines. However, the exact therapy or “tool” used to treat patients is not as important as what the goal of treatment is…. To treat the underlying cause of disease. In the many treatment modalities I utilize, one particular therapy I find exceptionally helpful in treating both chronic and acute conditions is called Intravenous Nutrient Therapy, or IVNT.
PMS, Weight gain, Fibroids, Endometriosis, Constipation, a menstrual cycle length of less than 25 days, painful periods, what do all of these symptoms have in common? They are all symptoms of a hormonal imbalance. These are common symptoms but they are not normal. PMS for example, affects 30-40% of all US women of reproductive age and 15 Million women have symptoms severe enough to disrupt their lives.

Parents and children alike cringe at the word earache. Quickly reminded of the sleepless nights or the holiday weekend that was ruined because their child was overcome with pain.

There are three main types or earaches: serous, infective, and external. Both infective and serous earaches often arrive following an upper respiratory tract infection and are accompanied by symptoms of fever, throbbing, tugging at the ear and pain.
How Can Naturopathic Medicine Help You? Heather’s Story ...

She had anxiety about her health and thought she was going crazy.
