Naturopathy Practice Offers High-Dose Vitamin C Infusions

The Merchantville Medical Wellness Center (MMWC) recently added intravenous (IV) nutrition to its portfolio of offerings, which includes naturopathic and functional medicine, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, infrared sauna and tension/trauma release sessions. 

IV nutrition therapy has recently caught the attention of wellness seekers, but it is more than just a trend. When administered intravenously, nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This allows the nutrients to be directly absorbed at the cellular level, offering maximum bio-availability. Simply stated, it is the most effective method of supplementation. 

MMWC offers many standard wellness blends like immunity, antioxidant and hydration, but also therapeutic doses for disease and symptom management. High-dose vitamin C, for example, delivers therapeutic value for oncology patients and is difficult to access in South Jersey, as many other wellness clinics will limit the dosing. This is what sets MMWC apart. The medical staff at MMWC can customize nutrient combinations designed to target unique, individual conditions. 

MMWC has gradually expanded into a full-service medical practice offering an alternative to conventional medicine. Lori Kitts, M.D., is the center’s medical director. She is trained in both traditional and functional medicine, and works with patients to identify unique barriers to health and develop a personalized health plan that emphasizes  prevention.
