Nutritional IV Therapy
IV Therapy

Intravenous, or IV therapy, is a treatment modality in which nutrients are introduced to the body through a vein. IV nutritional therapy makes it easier for clinicians to help patients reach therapeutic levels, in which the nutrients delivered have the greatest effect. It is at these therapeutic nutritional levels, where inflammation can be reversed and the body can be brought back into a state of balance and towards wellness. This is because the nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream and can flood cells instantly ensuring optimal absorption. This often requires high concentrations that are only achievable intravenously.

Like every individual, each IV treatment is customized for each patient to ensure that each formula will target each patient's condition. Each nutritional IV contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids or antioxidants to increase vitality, decrease inflammation and promote wellness.

Why IV?

Even the highest quality oral supplement being consumed by a person with healthy intestinal tracts will only allow about 15-25% absorption. Once absorbed, these nutrients get processed at the liver, which destroys another portion of supplements through metabolism. IV nutrition bypasses the gastrointestinal tract and the liver, providing 100% absorption.

How often do I need IV treatments?

It is recommended to do nutritional IV therapies in a series. This entails a minimum of at least once weekly. Consult your naturopath to determine health goals and to find out more details regarding your personal IV dosing schedules.

How long do treatments take?

Generally, treatments take anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours depending on the formula. Your naturopath will determine which formula is appropriate for your specific health picture.

But I am afraid of needles, what do I do?

Our clinician has years of experience placing IVs and she will make you most comfortable during the treatment. We have topical numbing agents to apply on the skin to ensure comfort, as well as homeopathic remedies one can take before treatment to reduce nerves and increase relaxation.

Treatments

Meyers' Wellness Cocktail

The Myers' Cocktail is an intravenous nutritional therapy comprised of a vitamins B, C, calcium, magnesium & selenium. Infusions of these vitamins and minerals have been palliating and reducing the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders that reduce the body's ability to absorb nutrients as well as increasing the immune system's response to common colds and viruses. Myers' cocktail also aids in rehydration & replenishment after acute and chronic stress has stripped vital nutrients from the body's various internal organs.

Myers' Immune-Stimulating Cocktail

IV nutritional therapy infusions that include high dosage, pharmaceutical grade vitamin C and other potent antimicrobials have been found to be helpful for chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, chronic infections, hepatitis, cancer, and acute infections. These formulas stimulate white blood cells to kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi and help one prevent sick days by improving the response time of the immune system. Patients receiving treatment recover from acute conditions much more quickly than with other modalities.

High Dose Vitamin C

Intravenous vitamin C is an immune system booster and has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-histamine properties. High doses of vitamin C can be toxic to cancer cells, and is an excellent adjunct treatment to the standard chemotherapy and radiation protocols prescribed for various cancers. These high doses are not tolerated orally, as they cause significant gastrointestinal upset, so the nutrients are more readily absorbed by the patient when administered intravenously.

Multi-Vitamin & Mineral

Vitamins and minerals provide the raw materials necessary for our cells to function properly. Usually we can get these nutrients through our diet if we are conscientious of what we eat. However, sometimes even a great diet may not translate to proper nutrition at the cellular level. There can be many causes of this, which may include poor digestion, food sensitivities, chronic inflammation, poor immune function, or any sickness. A vicious cycle ensues. Our cells are not healthy and they need nutrients to heal. But, the nutrients are not available because our cells are too weak to transport the vitamins and minerals to where they are needed.

Anti-Oxidant & Anti-Aging

Poor nutrition, chronic stress, improper sleep patterns and lack of physical activity all contribute to premature aging, loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, abdominal fat, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, skin problems, fatigue, and illness. A healthy diet high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber and amino acids, along with proper sleep, exercise, and stress management techniques, are all necessary for retaining youth and slowing the aging process. Even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight the aging process. IV therapy boosts the antioxidant vitamin and mineral levels in your body much more effectively than oral supplements. You can choose from a variety of IV cocktails, each designed to help your body repair damage, prevent aging, and recover its youthful vigor.

Glutathione

Glutathione is a tri-peptide, comprised of cysteine, glycine & glutamic acid. It is one of the body's primary intracellular antioxidant, and essential to life. Glutathione is poorly absorbed orally, so its healthful effects are multiplied when introduced into the body intravenously. It can prevent or reverse alcohol-induced fatty liver, cirrhosis, hepatitis, and liver tumors. It is useful to prevent radiation injury before radiation therapy is initiated, as well as inhibits chemical-induced carcinogenesis. Within 24 hours of a stroke, it can improve prognosis. Dr. David Perlmutter's research of Parkinson's Disease and glutathione has made this a great adjunct therapy for people with this condition. Glutathione levels decrease with age and can prevent memory loss & prolong dementia & Alzheimer's Disease.
