Intravenous (IV) Therapy
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a method of infusing vitamins, minerals, amino acids and sometimes medications directly into the bloodstream to correct nutrient deficiencies, enhance lifestyles and improve overall quality of life. Oral supplementation could never duplicate the concentrations reached with IV infusions due to absorption limitations of the digestive process. Depending on each patient’s condition or desire IV nutrition can provide spectacular results. The number of treatments and the overall health of the patient being treated dictates the success rate of IV nutritional outcomes.
It is a preventive anti-aging measure because it optimizes the nutritional makeup inside of the cells. Other benefits include:
- Increased libido & energy
- Enhanced sense of well being and mentality

- Improved healing and recovery from a night out, post surgical procedures and exercise
- Enhanced immune system support against pathogens
- Anxiety & stress relief
- Detoxification of environmental and internal toxic byproducts
Many of these benefits are seen within hours of receiving the treatment. Some chronic conditions require numerous treatments in order to achieve and maintain the benefits.
Complications of IV therapy include pain, irritation, inflammation or bruising at the injection site. The possibility of a systemic complication such as an allergy can occur, but is rare.
