IV or Intravenous Therapy is used to deliver large quantities of nutrients directly into the blood stream for immediate absorption and use by the body. IV vitamin therapy is an effective and efficient treatment at replenishing vitamins and minerals because it bypasses the digestive system, allowing for 100 percent absorption. During an IV vitamin infusion, you get the nutrients you need through an intravenous drip. The nutrients drip slowly into your system for 20-60 minutes as you relax.
Because the nutrients infuse directly into a vein, they don’t need to go through your digestive system at all. While you get many nutrients through the foods you eat, an IV infusion allows you to enjoy their maximum benefits much faster.
IV vitamin infusions can make you feel better if you’re dehydrated or lacking nutrients, which are the root causes of many common ailments. IV therapy treats a wide spectrum of conditions such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, and digestive disorders.
What kind of nutrients are used for IV Vitamin Therapy?
The nutrients used are all water-soluble vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and sometimes botanical derivatives as well as homeopathic remedies.
Vitamin C: Chemotherapeutic kills cancer cells and helps with cancer prevention, is anti-inflammatory, regulates immune function, helps decrease cholesterol, and aides in the absorption of iron.
Vitamin B12: Supports energy, sleep, mood, immunity, and the adrenal response to stress.
B-Complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6): Aides the adrenals, energy, immunity, skin, and the reproductive and nervous systems.

Calcium: Helps with muscle contractility, bone and teeth strength, and aides healthy blood clotting.
Zinc: Helps with vision, taste, immunity, insulin function, synthesis of cell regeneration, and prostate health.
Glutathione: Commonly known as the body's most important antioxidant. It fights almost any disease, particularly those associated with aging. It is involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and for the immune system.
What types of conditions are treated by IV Therapy?
IV Therapy treats a wide spectrum of conditions such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, and digestive disorders. Patients who have malabsorption problems are greatly nourished by IV nutrients.

Pre & Post IV Therapy Information
Pre IV Treatment Care
Most concerns patients encounter following an IV can be prevented. The following are some of the most common helpful preventive measures.
Hydration: Hydrate extra thoroughly 1 week before and after treatment. Some formulations, specifically the high dose vitamin C, can be dehydrating as well during the process. One must hydrate before, during and after the IV to get the best and most optimal results. Symptoms such as headache, dizziness, dry mouth, joint stiffness, joint aches, and others may be common, but will subside after a few days. It’s important to drink a lot of water. Coconut water may be used, but water is best.
Snacks: We will provide some snacks and water. But please feel free to bring in anything specific you would like to snack on. We want to keep your blood sugar stabilized so that your cells will take in the hydration more optimally. This will also help with the common symptoms of nausea and lightheadedness some may experience.
Avoid vasoconstriction drugs (i.e. OTC antihistamines; decongestants; Sudafed PE) the morning of and day before treatment.
Wear comfortable clothes
Post IV treatment care
Hydration: stay extra hydrated at least 1 week after the treatment.
Diet: try to avoid processed and inflammatory foods for at least 1-2 weeks after treatment. This will help reset the biochemistry and functioning of your gut and gut cells.
IV site care: Your IV site was cleaned and attended to properly during your IV. Even though the bleeding is stopped you may bruise and bleed internally for some time. If you have discomfort over the IV site you may apply cold towels or ice for 10-15 minutes at a time. If it looks or feels like it’s getting infected, then call your primary care or go to an urgent care clinic.
Common concerns: most post IV symptoms are just the IV nutrients working through your system. Increased or decreased energy, increased or decreased desire to sleep or eat are normal in the first day or two after an IV. It is normal to be thirsty, stay hydrated!
If any of the following are progressively worsening after your IV please call your primary urgent care:
Swelling over the veins IV site
Redness over the vein that progresses and covers more area
Pain in the vein that is not improving over an 8 – 12 hour period
Headache that does not resolve with increased hydration or mild analgesics like aspirin, Tylenol or ibuprofen.
