What is IV Therapy, and how can it help me?

The abbreviation “IV” stands for intra-venous. IV Therapy simply involves delivering liquids directly into the body through a vein. This is the fastest way to get vitamins, minerals and other natural, therapeutic agents into your blood. By bypassing the digestive system, we allow for therapeutic doses of nutrients to be delivered into the body in concentrations higher than can be achieved with oral supplementation alone. The nutrients are specially formulated based on what you are being treated for, how you feel that particular day, and your goals.

By the time symptoms of disease have made their appearance, it is sometimes too late for oral vitamins and minerals to make a difference. However, when given intramuscularly or intravenously, these same vitamins and minerals have a better shot to benefit your body. When we attempt to bring a disease under control, what we are really trying to do is provide cells with all the nutrients they need to get the job done. Our bodies are composed entirely of cells and cell products – if our cells are not healthy, we are not healthy.

The goal of IV Therapy is to provide nutrients in a high enough concentration that they may enter the cells where they are most needed, to recreate and sustain a healthy environment. It is a smart way to keep your immune system strong throughout the cold and flu season. IV therapy is usually a 30 – 60-minute process unless otherwise specified, and can be done multiple times a week depending on an individual’s needs.

Infusions Offered

A combination of B vitamins, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, and Selenium, in a small amount of carrier solution. This infusion is ideal for supporting detox pathways, energy, a boosted metabolism, improved mood and sleep, and for bolstering your immune system. It can also help relieve symptoms of asthma, migraines, chronic fatigue, hypertension, and fibromyalgia. A great way to keep your immune system strong throughout the cold and flu season! Takes about 30 minutes.

A “juiced up” Myers Cocktail. The large size of the IV bag allows for the administration of higher levels of vitamins and minerals vitamins, amino acids and herbal extracts. It takes approximately 90 minutes.

Vitamin C, when taken orally or infused in low doses, is known for it’s anti antioxidant activity; fighting off free radical damage, supporting immune function among many other things. However, high dose infusions  (25 grams and above) are very beneficial for the supportive treatment of chronic and acute viral infections. Much research has been done showing that vitamin C in these very high doses can disrupt cancer cell growth. In cancer patients, this high dose Vitamin C has shown to improve the response to conventional cancer therapies by helping to alleviate the negative side effects such as weight loss and poor immune function.

This formula is ideal to help prep your body before surgery, so that it will respond well to any trauma. It can also be received post-surgery, to help regenerate healthy tissue and heal your body more quickly. This drip usually takes about 2 hours.

During certain illnesses, patients may have a difficult time staying hydrated. Customized vitamin and mineral infusions are formulated in balanced concentrations, allowing the body to regain optimal hydration status more quickly than drinking water alone. These custom drips usually take 1.5 to 2 hours and can be done 1 – 2 times a week, depending on a patient’s needs.

Antioxidants are nature’s antidote to oxidative stress. The accumulation of free radicals can be a contributing cause to a vast number of diseases and the functional impairments associated with aging and environmental stress. Glutathione and its related enzymes are our most prolific antioxidants. It also plays crucial roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process by neutralizing drugs, chemicals, radiation, metabolic wastes and other toxins and carcinogens. Because glutathione is so poorly absorbed, most oral glutathione supplements are less effective. However, you can circumvent this by supplying the body with the nutrients required for glutathione production. Boost your levels by adding a glutathione push to your chosen infusion. Additional Infusions are offered depending on what your body needs.
