IV Therapy

What is Nutritional IV Therapy?

Nutritional IV Therapy puts nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and amino acids) directly into the bloodstream to help with deficiencies, reduce oxidative stress loads, and detoxify. In the simplest terms – Nutritional IV Therapy is an alternative and superior method to provide the body with vitamins, minerals, and/or amino acids. This is not the traditional IV treatment you receive in the hospital. Patients typically consume nutrients in pill form; however, there are times when increased nutritional supplementation is beneficial. Since an IV can bypass the digestive system, IV therapy is more effective than oral supplements in correcting nutrient deficiencies in your cells. The intravenous method (Nutritional IV Therapy) is superior because it gets the nutrients into the exact location they need to be – in the cells of the body.

Why Use Nutritional IV Therapy?

Patients traditionally resort to Nutritional IV Therapy because they are struggling with health conditions such as:

• Malabsorption due to advanced age, digestive issues, bariatric surgeries, food sensitivities
• Cancer
• Fibromyalgia
• Viral infections such as hepatitis, HIV and Epstein Barr Virus
• Chronic fatigue syndrome
• Weak immune system
• Cardiovascular diseases
• Parkinson's disease
• Cataracts
• Asthma
• Detoxification
• Anxiety

Vitamin B12 Injections

Why is Vitamin B12 important?

• B12 plays an important role in the nervous system (mental functioning) and in carbohydrate metabolism (energy)
• B12 deficiency is linked to fatigue, inability to concentrate, changes in memory, and depression
• B12 has been shown to improve inflammatory symptoms, such as bursitis and sciatica, and to decrease homocysteine levels, a bio-maker for heart disease
• B12 has been shown to decrease symptoms of fatigue, such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia

Why would I be deficient in B12?

• As we age, our body’s ability to digest foods high in B12 (beef, eggs, chicken) diminishes
• Digestion of foods high in B12 are inhibited by certain medications, such as H2 blockers, reflux medications, and Glucophages for blood sugar control
• As we age, our body’s ability to absorb B12 decreases

How often should I have a B12 injection?

In general, B12 injections are recommended once a month. Once a week for the first few weeks may be suggested.

If you are not already a patient, please download and fill out the B12 Form prior to your injection.

B complex shot is also available
