This week’s focus is the Chicago Chiropractic Center in partnership with Liquivida.
Some questions that probably jump to mind are: What is Liquivida? What is IV Therapy? Is this something I need? Where can I learn more about it?
Well, we’ve got you back! Literally and figuratively. Let’s start with who and what is Liquivida and branch out from there.
'Liquivida Lounge started as a concept at a Coconut Creek medical spa in 2013 with partners Dr. Leo Reyes and Dr. Howard Newman, and grew to be much bigger because people now prefer alternative medicine solutions to live longer, healthier lives.
Nutrition is the key to life, and sometimes, we don't put the best into our bodies. This lowers our energy, breaks down our body's defenses, and even impacts how we age.
Today Liquivida is a full-service medical spa that’s helping people across America to replenish, rehydrate, and revitalize through vitamin IV therapy, medical aesthetics, and innovative weight loss solutions.
The company is operated by a respected network of medical professionals who believe that sustainable health and wellness can be achieved by knowing the body and caring for it through targeted nutrition and a combination of preventative and functional medicine. '
With this you can see just how perfectly Liquivida and Chicago Chiropractic Center mesh. Chicago Chiropractic Center led by Dr. Anne Gordon is always striving to have the best possible treatment options for our patients. We are able to now offer more than physical medicine. With Dr. Keith Starwalt heading the Vitamin IV therapy, Trigger point injections, and PRP therapy; we are able to address issues that can’t necessarily be seen like vitamin deficiencies, which in turn, may be the cause of other issues.
Leading us to our next question of what is Vitamin IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) vitamin drip therapy is a safe and effective way to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and medications directly to your bloodstream. This technique bypasses the digestive system, thus all delivered supplements are 100% bioavailable for immediate use.
Many people take daily vitamins and supplements, which is good but what many people don’t know is that sometime as little as 30% of the vitamin or supplement is actually absorbed by the body through digestion. What is the relationship between the gut and nutrient absorption?
The stomach and proximal small intestine are responsible for most nutrient digestion and absorption in humans. In an otherwise healthy individual without prior surgical resection of the small bowel, about 85% of carbohydrates, 66%–95% of proteins, and all fats are absorbed before entering the large intestine.
Gut health is immensely important and for some, gut health inhibits fully absorbing the needed vitamins and minerals. IV therapy bypasses the gut and the full number of vitamins and minerals are put directly into the blood stream where the body can make use of them right away. It is a quicker process than that of your digestive system and you feel immediate results!
We are able to offer multiple IV options and below is a brief overview of each;
