Fatigue and Lack of Energy: Could it be Malabsorption?

Fatigue and Lack of Energy: Could it be Malabsorption?

Feeling tired and sluggish despite exercise and eating a healthy diet? It is possible you are experiencing “malabsorption”. Gastrointestinal malabsorption means a failure to fully absorb digested foods from the gut (bowel) into your body.

Intestinal malabsorption may cause:

  • Folate deficiency
  • Iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anaemia
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Oedema
  • Abnormal bleeding, caused by low vitamin K

Almost all disease starts in the gut, 70% of our immune system resides in the digestive system. The bacteria in your intestines regulate how your immune system works. The "inside" of your gut contains the food you eat plus organisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses. The only thing that keeps the inside of your gut separate from the rest of you is a thin layer of cells called "intestinal epithelium" which acts as a barrier and keeps food particles out of your bloodstream. A damaged intestinal epithelial layer also becomes inefficient at extracting the good nutrients which you are supposed to absorb from food for your cells to make energy in the mitochondria. The results are energy depletion, exhaustion and fatigue.

If you have been suffering with fatigue and possible malabsorption issues IV therapy could give you the boost you have been needing to feel good again.

IV infusion therapy- allows us to bypass your digestive tract, which in most people is dysfunctional and not absorbing nutrients as well as it should.

IV infusion therapy- also allows us to increase your tissue oxygen concentrations, stimulate the immune system and facilitate the removal of toxic substances and free radicals from your body.

IV infusion therapy- is the fastest way to provide nourishment for the body as the nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream.

If you have been experiencing fatigue and exhaustion you may be a candidate for IV infusion therapy.
