Intravenous (IV) Therapy
IV Therapy provides 100% delivery and rapid infusion of high doses of Vitamins and Minerals into the body via your veins.
Intravenous (IV) Nutritional Therapy is an efficient and effective way to deliver high concentrations of nutrients directly to the blood stream -- bypassing physiological and pathological limitation of the digestive system. The IV may boost energy, heighten immunity, ease tension, speed recovery and so much more!
Rational for Intravenous Therapy?
- Nutrients are needed by the body to function optionally and help fight disease.
- Nutrients slip through the cell wall without energy required from the cell.
- If nutrients are given in high concentration, it forces nutrients into the cell by means of high concentration gradient without expending energy the cell doesn't have to spend.
- The only way to obtain high concentration of nutrients is by intravenous or intramuscular administration; this route bypasses the stomach and creates an instant large amount of the needed nutrient to every cell in the body.
- The stomach and intestines transport and absorb only so fast which is not enough to create that high concentration factor within the body.

Are there any side effects?
You may experience a sensation of heat if your IV is administered too quickly. Magnesium in the formula can cause lowering of blood pressure, hence it is important to be well hydrated and eat a small meal before treatment. Bruising at the administration site, although less common, can happen.

Yes, the visit portion of the treatment is covered but the supplies portion, however, will be out of pocket.
