The Wellness Firms fully equipped clinic has a comprehensive laboratory on-site to perform complete blood work and test for a vitamin deficiency that you may have. We then create specialized Vitamin injection drips which incorporate the nutrients you actually need rather than a pre-made therapy bag with contents you might not need.
You can become deficient if you don’t have enough of a particular nutrient. A vitamin deficiency in a nutrient can cause death or other serious consequences depending on the nature of the problem. A poor diet, illness, malabsorption, or a lack of nutrients/vitamins or lifestyle can all lead to deficiencies. Certain vitamins and nutrients can be depleted by alcohol use, as well as certain drugs and medications.
What Are Two Common Vitamins That People Are Deficient In?
Vitamin B12 and vitamin B12 are two vitamins your body may be deficient in. A person should receive the necessary nutrients as soon as they feel they are suffering from a vitamin B12 or vitamin C deficiency. An IV drip or injection is the best and fastest way to replenish vitamins like the one offered by The Wellness Firm.
Why Do People Get Vitamin D Deficiency?
Many of us don’t spend enough time in the sun to get the vitamin D we need. It is difficult to get your levels back to normal after they have fallen.
Why Do People Get Vitamin B12 Deficiency?
As we age, our bodies no longer absorb vitamin B12 as well as they used to. Malabsorption problems can lead to a person not being able to absorb vitamin B12 properly. Vitamin b12 can also be depleted by lifestyle and other activities.
Vitamin B12 Deficiency
Vitamin B12 is essential for brain, nerve, and blood cell function. However, the body doesn’t produce it. External sources such as animal-based foods and B12 supplements are the only source of B12. Vegans are particularly at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency. A vitamin B12 deficiency can cause weakness, lightheadedness, shortness of breath, constipation, diarrhea, headaches, difficulty walking, mood swings, memory loss, mood changes, or heart palpitations.
Signs Of Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D is essential for bone strength and muscle weakness. A Vitamin D deficiency can also cause fatigue, headaches, weight gain, depression, and other symptoms. Low vitamin D symptoms are common in those with vitamin D levels below 30 ng/ml. Research shows that 70 ng/ml is the optimal vitamin D level. People who do not get enough sunlight daily are at the greatest risk for low vitamin D levels. This applies to the majority of us. Vegans and night shift workers are more at risk. To avoid skin cancer, most people stay indoors for the majority.
Other Vitamin Deficiencies Include
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin D
Deficiencies in glutathione, iron, calcium, potassium, folic acid, magnesium, and other minerals also have an effect on the proper function of our bodies.
This antioxidant traps free radicals, and helps to repair DNA and cells. Bad lifestyle choices, unhealthy food, medication, and alcohol consumption can all lead to a decrease in this antioxidant.
Our bodies use iron to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout our body. Anemia, which is iron deficiency, causes fatigue, pale skin, hair loss, and shortness of breath.
Calcium is essential for the building and maintenance of strong bones, as well as proper nerve function and muscle function. Low calcium levels can cause muscle cramps and even arrhythmias.
Potassium plays a number of important roles in our bodies. It ensures that our muscles, nerves, and brain function well. Potassium can be easily lost through vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, medications called diuretics, and eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and kidney conditions.
- Folic Acid
Folic acid is essential for the maintenance and production of cells. Folic acid deficiency can cause hair loss, brittle nails, and fatigue, as well as sores around the mouth and poor growth and development.
Magnesium supports energy, bone health, and sleep, as well as muscle function. Magnesium deficiencies can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness and cramps, nausea, seizures, arrhythmias, and loss of appetite.
IV Vitamin Therapy
IV vitamin therapy may be the best way to inject these nutrients into your body for people at higher risk of vitamin B12 or vitamin D deficiencies.
IV vitamin therapy uses a simple IV drip to deliver nutrients directly into the bloodstream. The location they are delivered depends on the need. Orally, nutrients must pass through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream. This is problematic because the stomach and liver can degrade nutrients, so only a small percentage of nutrients are actually able to enter the bloodstream to benefit your body.
