Although there are different ways one can receive micronutrients, Intravenous or IV therapy may be the most effective way of getting them directly to the bloodstream, bypassing any obstacles in the digestive system. IV nutritional therapy, unlike oral or topical routes, are 100% absorbed by the body. That means that IV drips are the fastest way to deliver vitamin supplements and therapeutic agents and those nutrients are available for immediate use.

IV nutrition therapy, which includes the administration of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other essential micronutrients by intravenous infusion, is designed to repair damages that may have occurred to the biological processes of the body.

 The IV therapies offered:

+ Saline Hydration

Saline (a combination of sodium chloride and water) is the foundation of almost every IV solution and provides essential hydration throughout the body. The human body is composed of 60% water, which means staying hydrated is essential to every body system. A saline hydration drip can revive a dehydrated system quickly.

Hydration benefits:

  • Cushions joints
  • Maintains cardiovascular health
  • Improves endurance
  • Boosts mood, concentration and focus
  • Provides mental clarity
  • Promotes and improves energy production
  • Eases chronic pain

+ Myers Cocktail

This is an IV vitamin and nutrient combination containing vitamin C, Magnesium and B vitamins. This Cocktail is given via slow IV push or slow infusion to achieve concentrations of nutrients not obtainable with oral administration.

Myers benefits:

  • Decreases fatigue
  • Improves depression symptoms
  • Decreases migraines and rhinitis
  • Supports immune system
  • Improves symptoms of hyperthyroidism, asthma, and cardiovascular disease

+ Glutathione

Glutathione, an antioxidant formed from amino acids, is critical for immune function and controlling inflammation. Considered a master detoxifier, it is present in virtually all your cells, with its highest concentration in your liver, pancreas, spleen and eyes. Your glutathione levels dwindle as you age, with stress, poor diet, pollution, and toxin exposure.

  • Rebuilds glutathione after radiation or infections
  • Improves detoxification ability
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Supports immune functioning for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune diseases, cancer, chronic infections, diabetes, autism, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney and liver disease

+ High Dose Vitamin C

Deprived of vitamin C, your body falls apart at the very root. Unfortunately food and oral supplements are not enough to achieve optimal health. When it is delivered via IV, vitamin C is 100% bioavailable.

High dose vitamin C is especially useful anytime you are under greater amounts of stress, feeling excessive fatigue, and when your immune system needs bolstering to fight acute or chronic viral and bacterial infections. Blood work is required before undergoing high dose vitamin C therapy.

Vitamin C benefits:

  • Decreases fatigue
  • Bolsters immune functioning
  • Supports adrenal glands
  • Improves and protects your skin
  • Strengthens tendons and bones
  • Fights chemotherapy/radiation side effects

+ Super ImmunoBoost

The Super ImmunoBoost therapy combines the Myers Cocktail with Glutathione for increased antioxidative and detoxifying support. It contains a vitamin and nutrient combination containing vitamin C, magnesium, B vitamins, and glutathione. This IV is given via a slow push or slow infusion to achieve concentrations of nutrients not obtainable with oral administration.

ImmunoBoost benefits:

  • Decreases fatigue
  • Improves depression symptoms
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Supports immune system and detoxification
  • Improves symptoms of chronic and acute illnesses
  • Enhances recovery from illness

+ Magnesium

Offered with or without vitamin B6, magnesium is an essential electrolyte that impacts the body functions needed to reach flow states and optimal health. Magnesium is known to regulate a number of our enzymes which support our body’s natural chemical reactions, but is easily depleted during times of stress. For this reason, many people are deficient in magnesium.

Magnesium benefits:

  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Improves energy production
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Improves sleep
  • Calms the nervous system
  • Decreases frequency of headaches
  • Provides preventative effects against migraines and diseases, such as Alzheimer's

What are the side effects?

Side effects are infrequent and minimal. The most common side effect is irritation ( redness, soreness, swelling) and occasional bruising. Some people experience a sensation of warmth and flushing during treatment or have the taste of vitamins in their mouth after or during infusion. Some of the other possible yet transient side effects include nausea, mild diarrhea , flu- like symptoms including body aches, fatigue or chills without fever ( signs that your body is getting rid of toxins).
