What is IV Therapy?
IV Nutrient Therapy is when vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream (intravenously infused) through an IV drip. It is a safe, powerful and innovative therapy that supports the resolution of numerous health problems such as infections, fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, learning disabilities, slow healing wounds, heart disease, and even abnormal tissue growth. Take-charge individuals see IV Therapy as a proactive and extremely effective tool for boosting nutritional status and preventing illness.
Purpose of Intravenous Application
Nutrients typically reach your cells through the process of digestion. This is where your gastrointestinal (GI) tract breaks down (or downsizes) the food and pills you eat and passes the nutrients through the lining of the GI tract and along to the blood. If your digestion is weak and your gut cannot process high concentrations of a nutrient your gut can become upset. An upset digestive tract will simply excrete the nutrient without sending it along to the blood that feeds the cells that need it.
Every person’s individual biochemistry is unique, so the absorption of food and oral nutritional supplements vary from person to person and age to age. Recommendations for healthy food and oral supplement dosing must consider a measureable loss of potency at the cellular level given the high probability of downgraded digestive efficacy. The cells of individuals with down-regulated digestion and/or absorption don’t get the nutrition needed to function optimally in their respective organ system. Overworked and undersupplied organs cry out for help by manifesting signs and symptoms of ‘un-ease’ before ultimately developing ‘dis-ease’. If you don’t feel good, your cells may need rapid delivery of nutritional reinforcements to begin functioning optimally. You may be like many people we see who are experiencing sub-optimal health even though you are eating the right foods and taking the right supplements. Your health could be pivoting on this issue of nutritional deficiency due to impaired absorption.
This is where IV nutrition valiantly comes to the rescue at once. By the time many patients finally seek alternative natural healing solutions they are depleted in magnesium, B-vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients even though they have been actively ingesting them through food and pills. As these nutrients become covertly depleted, the enzymes that they form also become depleted. This leads to a complex situation where the enzymes and cofactors needed to absorb vitamins and minerals are deficient leading to even more nutrient deficiencies and a progressive downward spiral. The problem here is that because of decreased absorption, giving the patient vitamins and minerals orally often cannot correct the problem or give a renewed sense of wellness. This is where intravenous vitamin and mineral infusions immediately act as a powerful modulator and continues support throughout the time one plods away working to correct digestive and absorptive insufficiencies with their health care practitioner.
Intravenous administration is roundly the most effective mode to replenish depleted vitamins and minerals when absorption is impaired. As we age, everyone’s absorption becomes increasingly impaired. Yet, when nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the GI and are carried directly to the needy cells via the blood. The results are effected almost immediately throughout the strapped organ systems often bringing an energized sense of well-being to the patient. Even very large doses can be administered through IV without gastrointestinal side effects that normally occur with oral administration.
Often patients receiving IV therapy feel better right away and experience rapid symptom relief. We have observed several patients who become progressively healthier when receiving a series and/or regular infusions. The infusions are extremely effective, easy to administer, and completely safe for nearly all populations.

I.V. Treatments Offered
Customized IV’s, Shots, Pushes, and Boosters
We offer a variety of specialized Push and IV mixtures including D3, B12, B-Complex, Multiple Minerals, Amino Acids, Trace Minerals, Colloidal Silver, Regenyln, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Glutathione, H2O2, DMSO, and many more specifically formulated for your own individual biochemical challenges and needs.
Though most of our IV’s are customized, below are a few examples of traditional IVs:
Vitamin C Cocktail
We use a high dose vitamin C and multivitamin/mineral combination that is great for those who are worn down by stress or illness, or those just seeking to stay healthy and energized. The combination is great for the change of the seasons and can be followed by our custom formulations for even more antioxidant protection.
Classic Myers’ Cocktail
Based on the research done by Dr. John Myers, the Myers Cocktail contains Vitamin C, six different B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, sodium bicarbonate, and IV hydration solution. Our Myers’ Cocktail also comes with intravenous glutathione and 250ml or 500ml of IV hydration.
We use Calcium-EDTA to chelate toxic heavy metals from the body, including aluminum, cadmium, lead, and more. DMPS is used to chelate toxic metals and is particularly good at binding to mercury, a potent neurotoxin and endocrine disruptor.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is an extremely useful and powerful antioxidant that has been shown in medical studies to reverse nerve damage, and is also useful for treating liver problems, including hepatitis. The combination of glutathione and alpha lipoic acid (infused separately) is an extremely powerful antioxidant and detoxification regimen.
Glutathione is one of the body’s most effective antioxidant and detoxifying substances, especially for the brain and liver. Glutathione is a naturally occurring antioxidant and dramatically improves the detoxification and rebuilding process in the body. The combination of glutathione and alpha Lipoic acid (infused separately) is an extremely powerful antioxidant and detoxification protocol.
