Mrs Bunmi Talabi- Adeyemi

The widespread use of food additives, chemicals, sugar and unhealthy fats in our diets contribute to many of the degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart diseases, arthritis and osteoporosis. In this report by Sade Oguntola, experts say that vitamins and minerals infusions are efficacious in warding off and treating many day-to-day illnesses.


There is growing evidence that intravenous infusion of vitamins and minerals are efficacious in both preventing and treating many health conditions. This was noticed as far back as 30 years ago by late John Myers, a physician in Maryland, USA.

Unfortunately, vitamin deficiency is surprisingly a common problem however silent it appears. Many people lack the desired levels needed in the body for optimal health.

Generally, our diet should provide adequate levels of basic nutrients. However, due to chronic stress, environmental pollutants, nutrient depleted soil and genetic modification, nutrient status is often not even close to our body needs.

“This is where intravenous vitamins and minerals Infusion can be very helpful. It is a way to replenish depleted vitamins and minerals in the body even when the digestive system’s absorption is impaired. The infusions are easy to administer and completely safe,” said Mrs Bunmi Talabi-Adeyemi MD, Activlife Infusion Clinic, University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan and Ikeja Lagos.

Nonetheless, Mrs Bunmi Talabi-Adeyemi affirmed that nutrient  infusion can help correct vitamin and mineral deficiencies amongst the populace, improve productivity of individuals most especially those with busy and hectic work schedule, people with immune compromised status or debilitating illnesses as well as ensure maximal wellbeing among people with very active life.


How Infusion Therapy works

There are three main factors that contribute to the action of vitamin and mineral infusion. According to research, “the intravenous route bypasses the intestines. In chronic illness, the intestines are often inflamed; they fail to absorb important vitamins and minerals efficiently. This often leads to low levels of nutrients in the tissues even when dietary supplements and nutritional diet should be providing adequate nutrition.

“Secondly, the levels of nutrients needed for maximal healing vary widely in individuals; however, most people require a very high level of one or other nutrients in the body.

“In order to get high levels of nutrients to where they are needed inside the cells, intravenous therapy produces effects that cannot possibly be achieved in any other way.

“Lastly, several of these nutrients and vitamins are critical for energy production, particularly in the cellular powerhouse, called the mitochondria.”


Why the need for vitamins and minerals infusion?

Air, soil and water pollution in addition to modern farming techniques, have depleted our soils of vital minerals. The widespread use of food additives, chemicals, sugar and unhealthy fats in our diets also contributes to many of the degenerative diseases of our day such as cancer, heart diseases, arthritis, osteoporosis and many more.

In older people, the body becomes less efficient at absorbing some key nutrients. Their ability to taste food declines, they feel bloated and most times experience loss of appetite. Some foods even become difficult to chew or digest, therefore, their system is not benefiting from essential vitamins and minerals.
