Over the last couple of years, more and more people have been looking into ways to improve their overall physical and mental health. This might include boosting immunity, calming the mind, and sharpening brainpower or just promoting anti-aging from the inside as well as out. 

What many people don’t realize however is the impact that proper nutrition can have on our overall mood, energy levels, and appearance. This is why it’s so important to properly supplement with the necessary vitamins and minerals. 

 

Are diet and oral supplementation enough for optimal health? 

For most people, the short answer is No. A nutritionally rich diet is essential for good health, however, we only absorb 10-15% of nutrients from our food. Additionally, things like stress, exposure to toxins, and poor soil quality can further impact our ability to get all the nutrients we need for ideal health.

This is why a large percentage of people are nutritionally deficient despite following a healthy diet. Some of the most common nutritional deficiencies include Vitamin D, B12, B-Complex, and Vitamin C. 

OWM Integrative Wellness is proud to be one of the first facilities in Western New York to offer intravenous infusion therapy to our patients. With IV Therapy,100% of nutrients are absorbed due to delivery through the vein and into the bloodstream. This method of delivery means more nutrients are delivered directly into the cells.

We know that Intravenous Therapy is the superior way to ensure that you are getting the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to function at an optimal level. At OWM Integrative Wellness, our infusions are customized to the patient’s individual health needs rather than pre-made and “one-size-fits-all” like many other IV bars. 

 

Vitamin Shots at OWM 

OWM Integrative Wellness is now offering intramuscular vitamin injections also known as vitamin shots. These health boosters are injected deep into muscles to allow quick vitamin absorption into the bloodstream. Just like our Intravenous Infusions, these Vitamin Shots are tailored to the individual’s needs in both content and creation of ingredients. Vitamin Shots are a great way to promote nutritional optimization if you are short on time or they can be added on to your next wellness visit or spa treatment!
