Supplements for Healthy AgeingAs we age our body becomes more sensitive to the cumulative effects of toxins in our food and environment. Our hectic lifestyles also create significant physical and emotional demand. Over time, our bodies become less efficient in absorbing, metabolising, converting and utilising vital nutrients from the diet. Even with an optimal diet and oral supplements, this ineffective processing of nutrients can lead to nutrient deficiencies and a range of common symptoms.
Common Symptoms of Nutrient Deficiencies are:
• Fatigue • Irritability • Mood swings
• Weight gain • Weight loss • Headaches
• Poor sleep • Bowel disturbances • Anxiety
• Uneven skin tone • Hair loss.
You are what you AbsorbMost vitamins purchased over-the-counter are of poor quality and have low concentrations of essential nutrients. In addition, oral forms of vitamins can only be effective if absorption is optimal. When absorption becomes inefficient, vitamins in solution or injection form may be needed to restore balance in the body and improve general well-being.
Nutrient therapies available at DermiCo:Oral Solutions of nutrients can provide on-going management of mild deficiency states and relief from associated symptoms. These solutions are highly concentrated and more effectively absorbed by the bowel.
Intramusclar Injections of vitamins may be indicated for moderate deficiencies or if concurrent medical conditions are present. These injections do not rely on absorption as they by-pass the bowel to provide relief from symptoms for extended periods of time. Treatment is usually on-going and injections may be recommended at various intervals depending on severity of symptoms.
Intravenous Nutrient Therapy may be indicated for people with severe, long-term symptoms of deficiencies or chronic medical conditions (eg migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune conditions). The nutrients are injected directly into the bloodstream, offering an optimal method for distribution. Depending on the severity of symptoms, infusions may be recommended weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
