Depending on the type of intravenous infusion, these therapies can be beneficial for people who suffer from the following disorders:
Diabetes and associated disorders

The above list only mentions a few of the medical uses for intravenous therapies. Some people also benefit from these therapies before or after surgery, while receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy, as well as a means of preventive therapy.

"The Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT) has provided statistically significant evidence that intravenous EDTA chelation therapy is effective for reducing future cardiac events in post-MI patients who are already on 'evidence-based' cardiac therapy." - Study sponsored and collaborated by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM)
The goals of intravenous therapy are:
To deliver the nutrients directly into the bloodstream
To deliver the nutrients to the tissues in optimal proportions for maximum effects
To reduce the need for any dosage of drugs in various stages of patient care
To protect tissues from injury caused by chemotherapy, radiotherapy, anesthesia, surgery, and other forms of trauma
To provide an extra boost to the metabolism at the onset of an illness
Please note: None of these IV therapies are covered under any insurance plans and can range in price.
