Introd­uction

Intrav­enous therapy is therapy that delivers liquid substances directly into a vein (intra- + ven- + -ous). The intrav­enous (IV) route of admini­str­ation can be used for injections (with a syringe at higher pressures) or infusions (typically using only the pressure supplied by gravity). Intrav­enous infusions are commonly referred to as drips. The intrav­enous route is the fastest way to deliver medica­tions and fluid replac­ement throughout the body, because the circul­ation carries them. Intrav­enous therapy may be used for fluid replac­ement (such as correcting dehydr­ation), to correct electr­olyte imbala­nces, to deliver medica­tions, and for blood transf­usions.

Benefits of IV Therapy

Main benefit of intrav­enous treatment is that nutrients are infused directly into the bloods­tream. Intrav­enous treatments therefore are except­ionally powerful because they circumvent issues with oral admini­str­ation, including stomach upset, absorption issues, and loss of potency. In addition, since the nutrients are infused directly into the bloods­tream and avoid the gastro­int­estinal system, very large doses can be admini­stered without gastro­int­estinal side effects which can limit dosing. A perfect example of this is vitamin C, which can only be taken in fairly small amounts orally before causing stomach upset. In contrast, very large doses of vitamin C, which can be very beneficial for the immune system, can be admini­stered safely and without stomach side effects with an intrav­enous delivery route.

Intrav­enous Therapy Calm

Also known as the Myers Cocktail, the CALM IV is a well-known and highly effective IV formul­ation for anxiety and relaxa­tion. Consisting of high doses of B vitamins and magnesium, along with other nutrients, the Calm IV can result in immediate relaxa­tion, lowering of blood pressure, and easing of anxiety.

Antiox

The ANTIOX IV can consist of glutat­hione, alpha lipoic acid (ALA), or both, depending on what is best for each patient. 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. Alpha lipoic acid is another 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.
 

IV Nutrient Therapy

Immune

For anyone suffering from immune disorders or anyone just needing an immune boost we offer our IMMUNE IV. This IV consists of buffered vitamin C in very high doses. High-dose intrav­enous vitamin C is no longer antiox­idant but in fact turns into a pro-ox­idant against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.

Boost

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 BOOST IV can be followed by the ANTIOX IV for even more antiox­idant protec­tion. Great for cold and flu season.

Cleanse I & II

The CLEANSE I and II use specific chelators like EDTA to remove toxic metals from the body including aluminum, cadmium, lead, and more. Many of the toxic metals are potent neurot­oxins and endocrine disrup­tors. These two IV’s can also be used when checking for heavy metals in the body with a “provo­cation” test.
