How can IV therapy help patients with an autoimmune disease?


The incidents of autoimmune disease have gone up substantially throughout the past few decades. Researchers have not yet confirmed whether or not the rate of autoimmune disease has increased due to our ability to better detect incidences of it or due to lifestyle and environmental factors. Currently, over 24 million Americans suffer from more than 80 different varieties of autoimmune disease. Among the most common types of autoimmune disease are rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and type 1 diabetes


Most treatment options for autoimmune disease help alleviate symptoms of disease rather than cure the autoimmune dysfunction in its entirety. Integrative health practitioners have begun to look to IV therapy as a potential treatment option for autoimmune disease sufferers.


Typically, genetic and environmental factors lead to an individual suffering from autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disease is when the body mistakenly identifies healthy cells within the body as a potential threat and thus attacks otherwise healthy cells. The exact causes of autoimmune disease are unknown. One theory is that bacteria or viruses may trigger changes that essentially confuse the body’s immune system. Many medical professionals agree that poor diets lead to an increase in autoimmune symptoms.


Inflammation of the body during autoimmune disease also decreases your body’s ability to absorb proper nutrition which may result in deficiencies. Typically, inflammation creates havoc on the body’s gut lining which decreases the body’s ability to absorb nutrients properly.


IV nutritional therapy may help in alleviating some autoimmune disease symptoms by delivering potent nutrition directly into an individual’s bloodstream. When you bypass the digestive tract, you can receive high-quality nutrition into your body in the most efficient way possible. Proper nutrition may help reduce overall body inflammation and increase the body’s mineral and vitamin levels.


Traditional medication used to treat autoimmune disease includes immunosuppressant medications which may also decrease the body’s ability to fight infections and viruses by weakening the immune system. In an effort to treat the underlying conditions of autoimmune disease, these medications attempt to alleviate the negative side effects of a hyperactive immune system. When you weaken the body’s immune system with medication you become more susceptible to increased rates of infection.


IV hydration therapy helps alleviate some of the symptoms of autoimmune disease by boosting antioxidant levels. It may help increase mineral and vitamin nutrient levels if there are any underlying deficiencies present. Antioxidants help decrease free radicals and toxins within the body while helping manage the symptoms of autoimmune disease.


NAD+ and Vitamin C


NAD+ and Vitamin C are two nutrients that play a vital role in immune function and energy levels, which makes them a popular choice for people with autoimmune diseases. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential for cellular energy production, DNA repair, and immune function. Recent studies have revealed that NAD+ supplementation can enhance immune function, alleviate symptoms such as fatigue and brain fog, and reduce inflammation in people with autoimmune diseases.


Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and reduces inflammation. It plays a crucial role in immune function and helps produce collagen, which is necessary for healthy skin and connective tissue. While oral supplements provide a limited dose of vitamin C, IV therapy can deliver a higher dose of Vitamin C, which can provide an immediate boost to the immune system.


IV therapy can include other essential nutrients such as B vitamins, magnesium, and amino acids, which can support immune function, reduce inflammation, and improve energy levels. IV therapy is also customizable to meet individual needs, which makes it a personalized approach to managing autoimmune diseases.


One study found that IV vitamin C therapy can reduce inflammation and improve symptoms in people with autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Another study found that NAD+ supplementation can improve immune function and reduce inflammation in people with multiple sclerosis.


NAD+ IV Therapy for Autoimmune Diseases


NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme that plays a crucial role in cellular energy production, DNA repair, and immune function. NAD+ levels decline with age and in people with chronic illnesses, including autoimmune diseases. NAD+ IV therapy involves the infusion of NAD+ directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and ensuring maximum absorption.


NAD+ IV therapy has been shown to have numerous benefits for people with autoimmune diseases. It can help support immune function, reduce inflammation, and alleviate symptoms such as fatigue and brain fog. NAD+ IV therapy has also been shown to improve mitochondrial function, which is critical for cellular energy production.


One study published in the Journal of Neuroinflammation found that NAD+ supplementation can help reduce inflammation and improve motor function in people with multiple sclerosis. Another study published in Scientific Reports found that NAD+ supplementation can improve mitochondrial function in people with autoimmune diseases.


While NAD+ IV therapy is generally well-tolerated, there are potential side effects and risks that should be considered. These may include nausea, flushing, and headache.


It's important to note that IV therapy is a safe and effective approach to managing autoimmune diseases, but it should be administered by a licensed medical professional. IV therapy is generally well-tolerated, but there are potential side effects and risks, such as bruising or infection at the injection site.
