IV Therapy & Injections

IV Therapy & Injections Services - optimal health and wellness

What is IV Therapy?

The abbreviation “IV” stands for intra-venous. IV Therapy simply involves delivering liquids directly into the body through a vein. This is the fastest way to get vitamins, minerals and other natural, therapeutic agents into your blood. By by passing the digestive system, we allow for therapeutic doses of nutrients to be deliverd into the body in concentrations higher than can achieve with oral supplementation alone.

The nutrients will be specially formulated for you based on what you are being treated for, how you feel that particular day and the goal we are trying to accomplish.

By the time symptoms of disease have made their appearance, it is sometimes too late for oral vitamins and minerals to make much difference. Nevertheless, these same vitamins and minerals, given intramuscularly or intravenously, can benefit many diseases. When we attempt to bring a disease under control, what we are really trying to do is provide cells with all the nutrients they need to get the job done. If the cells are not healthy, we are not healthy, since our bodies are composed entirely of cells and cell products.

We approach the problem of curing disease as a problem of “the cell.” We want to provide the cell what it needs to exist in a healthy envirornment. To work, these nutrients must be brought into the cell. If the cell is sick, it does not perform its functions well. What to do? The answer is simple: give nutrients in a concentration high enough to force those nutrients into the cell where they are most needed.

Myers Cocktail/Basic Immune Push

CLICK HERE to find out about our current special on Myers Cocktails!

The Myers’ Cocktail is named after the late John Myers, MD who used an intravenous vitamin/mineral formula for the treatment of a wide range of conditions, including migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, seasonal allergies, colds/flus, sinusitis, muscle spasms, and other disorders. The cocktail contains many B-vitamins including B12, vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium. This IV works by increasing the blood concentration of several vitamins and minerals to levels not obtainable through food or oral supplementation. Inflammation and disease cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate, so by giving nutrients intravenously we’re not only assuring that the cells are getting the proper vitamins and minerals for energy and healing activities, we’re also bypassing the digestive tract and ensuring 100% absorption, which is also advantageous in anyone with a compromised digestive tract.

At our clinic, we have great success using the Myer’s Cocktail in the mentioned conditions, as well as in the preparation and recovery for athletes. Some patients feel an energy boost lasting anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks, while others notice decrease in pain of chronic conditions. Other patients notice improvements in allergic symptoms, digestion, sleep quality, and the integrity and appearance of their skin. IV nutrient therapy is a great way to keep your system strong throughout the cold and flu season. This usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.  They can be done multiple times a week depending on individual needs.

The immune push is a homeopathic called Engystol and can be added to the bag at the end of a Myers IV.

High Dose Vitamin C
Vitamin C, when taken orally or infused in low doses, is known for it’s anti antioxidant activity; fighting off free radical damage, supporting immune function among many other things. However, high dose infusions  (25 grams and above) are very beneficial for the supportive treatment of chronic and acute viral infections. Much research has been done showing that vitamin C in these very high doses can disrupt cancer cell growth. In cancer patients, this high dose Vitamin C has shown to improve the response to conventional cancer therapies by helping to alleviate the negative side effects such as weight loss and poor immune function.
Antioxidants are nature’s antidote to oxidative stress. The accumulation of free radicals can be a contributing cause to a vast number of diseases and the functional impairments associated with aging and environmental stress. Glutathione and its related enzymes are our most prolific antioxidants. It also plays crucial roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process by neutralizing drugs, chemicals, radiation, metabolic wastes and other toxins and carcinogens. Because glutathione is so poorly absorbed, most oral glutathione supplements are less effective. However, you can circumvent this by supplying the body with the nutrients required for glutathione production. Boost your levels by adding a glutathione push to your chosen infusion. Additional Infusions are offered depending on what your body needs.

Natural Flu Injections
Influenza (the flu) is a respiratory disease caused by infection by one of the Influenza viruses. The strain of the virus can change from year to year and even within the same year. People who get the flu may have fever, chills, headache, dry cough and muscle aches and may be sick for several days, a week or more. Most people completely recover from the flu.

However, for some people, the flu may be especially severe and pneumonia or other complications may develop.

This injection contains homeopathic medications that fight together to ward off the flu, as well as other infections that can cause the common cold. This injection works by stimulating the natural immune response against symptoms of the flu. It also strengthens the nonspecific defense system of the body to prevent any virus or bacteria from infecting a person. In-vitro studies show that this injection stimulates the immune system to perform at 41% higher than it’s natural reaction.


  1. How is this different from the Flu Vaccine?
    The Natural Flu Prevention Shot does not contain any type of virus. It works by stimulating your immune system to be ready to fight off ANY virus or bacteria it may encounter, not just one.
  2. If I get this shot, can I still get the flu?
    Unfortunately, yes. This depends on the overall health of your immune system. The good news is that if you start to feel like you are getting sick, you can get another shot to again stimulate your immune system. You can also take advantage of the many natural treatments for the flu so that you recover quicker and don’t get as sick.
  3. Are there any known side effects?
  4. Is this injection safe for everyone?
    Yes. Anyone can safely receive this shot, whether young or old. Since the injection simply works with your own immune system without known side effects or preservatives, everyone can safely use it.
  5. Are there any preservatives in the Natural Flu Shot?
    No. Unlike the conventional flu shot, this injection avoids the use of any preservatives.
  6. If I have already received the traditional flu shot, can I get the Natural Flu Prevention Shot?
    Yes. Since the traditional flu shot aims at only one virus and since it works by an entirely different mechanism, it is not only safe but recommended that you receive the Natural Flu Shot. Remember that the Natural Flu Shot helps your body’s immune system fight off all viruses and bacteria.
  7. How much does it cost?
  8. Do I need to make an appointment to get the shot?
    Yes. Because we draw up each injection individually, you do need to make an appointment. Keep in mind that we typically have appointments available the same day that you call.
Fat Burning Injectables (F.B.I.)

These injections given 1- 2 times weekly have been shown to assist in weight loss help by increasing the burning of fats in the body and the liver. Not only will this help you lose unwanted pounds, but it can also help decrease cholesterol levels by helping the liver to process fats, support liver detoxification, balance hormone levels, and stabilize mood!!!

What is in the F.B.I? It is a combination of amino acids and vitamins that are required by the body for optimal fat burning to occur. They contain:

Methionine: An essential sulfur containing amino acid. It acts as an antioxidant, enhances brain function by increasing the production of SAMe, which is used to treat depression. It also helps support the production of glutathione, a potent antioxidant required by the body for optimal detoxification.

Inositol: Supports optimal fat metabolism. It is important for healthy cell membranes and nerve conduction. Great for mood support by having a calming effect on the nervous system.

Choline: Essential for fat metabolism and healthy liver function. This nutrient works closely with inositol as a primary component of the cell membrane.

L-Carnitine: Helps the body turn fat into usable energy.

B Vitamins: Necessary for energy production and cellular enzyme function. B Vitamins keep the wheels turning inside the cells.
