Benefits: The cells in our body receive amino acids, nutrients, cofactors and vitamins through our diet. Unfortunately, only about 50% of what we eat gets transmitted to those cells that need it. The rest is eliminated as waste. Some people have intestinal malabsorption, Irritable bowel syndrome, gluten sensitivity, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, yeast overgrowth, excess alcohol use, long or short term antibiotic use… All of these conditions are associated with intestinal malabsorption which in turn leads to fewer vital nutrients and amino acids being absorbed by your body. Clinically this is evident as poor skin tone and color, muscle wasting, increased fat deposits on body, acne, poor hair loss, severe fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, feeling stressed out, anxiety, frequent illness/infection, headaches, allergies, asthma…
IV nutrient therapy can lead to increased energy, enhanced immune support, and a better overall sense of well being. Many patients report benefits within hours of receiving their treatment. We have treated athletes, lawyers, pilots, firefighters, police officers, media personnel and many more.
Our medical spa offers discrete treatment in a private room for the duration of your treatment.
The treatment involves the placement of a small catheter into your vein. After this the treatment itself lasts about 30-40 minutes as the IV therapy flows into your vein. Some patients may need IV therapy a few times, some need it more frequently. The protocols are different dependent upon the patient and the treatment condition.
Most common side effect from IV therapy may be inflammation, or bruising at the injection site; this is a rare complication.
IV Therapy for Fatigue
Many suffer from any array of symptoms with no explanation. Such symptoms can greatly effect the quality of one’s life.
- Loss of memory or concentration
- Sore throat
- Enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits
- Unexplained muscle pain
- Pain that moves from one joint to another without swelling or redness
- Headache of a new type, pattern or severity
- Unrefreshing sleep
- Extreme exhaustion lasting more than 24 hours after physical or mental exercise
This constellation of symptoms is associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This may be found more often as you get older into your late 30’s-50. It is common in both women and men, and can be associated with age. Chronic fatigue syndrome can occur at any age, but it most commonly affects people in their 40s and 50s. It can be associated with depression, social isolation, lifestyle restrictions, increased.
IV Therapy for Cold and Flu
Everyone gets a cold once or twice per year. Most of these resolve with little or no intervention. However we all have extra stress from work, irregular sleep habits, little children exposing us to more viruses than usual, poor nutrient diets, or insufficient exercise. This can create an environment where our immune responses may be blunted, and subsequently we experience more than just the occasional cold, but multiple episodes, or one or two prolonged illnesses that last weeks. This can increase your susceptibility to pneumonia, or bronchitis. IV nutrient therapy geared toward immune-stimulating and supporting vitamins and minerals can help keep your immune system primed for virus season. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and is involved with our immune systems to keep it primed so that any illness is short. If an Immune formula IV is used during the early stages of an illness, it can decrease the severity of symptoms and duration of illness so that you can remain functional at work or at home.
IV immune treatment works best when given at the first signs of a cold or flu, administered on two consecutive days, with an occasional 3rd treatment needed within the week. Preventive weekly or bi-monthly treatments may also be appropriate. People who struggle with their health during flu season may benefit greatly from IV therapy.
IV Therapy for Hangovers
Almost everyone experiences a hangover at some time in their life. The painful truth is that it usually ruins the entire next day, and possibly 2 or more days in its aftermath.
Although not the primary function of our IV Nutrient therapies, it is well known that these can “cure” hangovers while being administered. A hangover occurs because of acute loss of important nutrients, and vitamins from alcohol and build up of toxic alcohol metabolites. Our Hangover IV replaces lost nutrients and adds an anti-emetic to help you get back to normal and continue without wasting your day stuck in recovery.
IV Therapy for Intestinal Malabsorption
Many people suffer from malabsorption and are unaware. Bloating, diarrhea, excess gas, constipation, abdominal cramping, gluten sensitivity, abdominal pain, continuous weight gain, hair loss, loss of skin elasticity, brain fog…these symptoms may all be from malabsorption and the resultant loss of critical vitamins and minerals leads to the clinical presentation of these symptoms over time. If you have these symptoms, you may benefit from a medical consultation, and testing to assess if you have food allergies causing intestinal malabsorption. These services may be a covered benefit by your insurance. We will assess your individual situation and assess your need for Nutritional IV to replete loss of vital nutrients.
IV Therapy for Athletes
Are you a weekend warrior, casual runner, or marathon chaser? whatever your passion, your muscles consume a massive amount of vital nutrients to achieve maximum performance. Our diets do not replenish these vitamins and co-factors sufficiently, and subsequently, muscle recovery is suboptimal which leads to a decrease in performance and an increase in overall fatigue. Get the same benefits professional athletes get with our Performance Replacement IV. This IV includes:
- Vitamin C
- Myers Cocktail
- Amino Acid Infusion
Our Performance Replacement IV replenishes vital co-factors and vitamins to allow your body to heal and recover faster, and allow you to achieve your optimum peak performance.
