Injection therapy involves using a needle and syringe to inject vitamins (i.e. B12), minerals (i.e. iron), or other natural immune boosts into a person’s body to address the ailment that does not respond to other forms of treatment. During these treatments, medication is injected into the soft tissues, joints and other areas. It is usually more effective in treating acute pain, but it may also be used to treat chronic pain.
(B12, B6, Folic Acid, Iron, Vitamin D)
Vitamin B12, B6 and folic acid are important water-soluble vitamins. A vitamin deficiency may not manifest itself until after 5 or 6 years of a diet supplying inadequate amounts. The amount of any injectable vitamin actually needed by the body is very small. Unfortunately, many vitamins are not absorbed well in the stomach so much larger amounts are needed to be supplied through the diet or supplementation. Some doctors still maintain that monthly injections of water soluble vitamins are required to maintain adequate levels in the elderly and in patients with a diagnosed deficiency. Notably iron injections help with iron deficiencies in patients. There is scientific evidence supporting the notion that injections are more effective in some cases than supplementation by mouth.
