HEALTH IS THE NEW WEALTH!
Preventative medicine has become increasingly popular for individuals who want to take a proactive approach to their health and stay ahead of the medical curve. We promote health and wellness by helping to restore and optimize your body’s natural balance.
The prospect of improving both the quantity and quality of life is one reason IV medicine is so exciting. IV Vitamin Therapy is not a new fad but has been practiced for many years as an adjunct to conventional medical treatment of a wide range of health conditions.
Intravenous (IV) therapies involve administering nutrients directly into the bloodstream (intravenously). It is an efficient route for instant drug or component action. This delivery system is exceptionally powerful because it circumvents the potential loss of potency due to possible breakdown in the GI tract and poor absorption of some orally administered nutrients. Oral vitamins commonly have absorption rates of only 10 to 25 percent and decreases in the efficiency of the digestive tract as we age or have disease.
Poor nutrition, chronic stress, improper sleeping patterns and lack of physical activity all contribute to premature aging, loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, abdominal fat, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, skin problems, fatigue and illness. Learning how to manage your lifestyle is key to slowing the aging process and retaining youth. A healthy diet – high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber and amino acids – along with proper sleep, exercise and stress management techniques, are all necessary for retaining youth and slowing the aging process.
Even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight the aging process. IV therapy boosts the antioxidant vitamin and mineral levels in your body much more effectively than oral supplements. It has an immense value in conditions with food sensitivities, intestinal inflammations and other digestive enzyme disorders.
You can choose from a variety of IV infusions, each designed to help your body repair damage, prevent aging, and recover its youthful vigor.
Reasons to Use IV Therapy
As we get older our metabolism gets less efficient, thereby the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of toxic cellular wastes become less effective. The effects of chronic stress and poor nutrition can contribute to the buildup of free radicals that in turn can lead to more symptoms of premature aging like loss of skin elasticity and other metabolic problems.
One of the biggest benefits of IV therapy is to correct nutritional deficiencies. Small nutritional deficiencies can cause large metabolic problems such as in normal aging and age-related conditions It is particularly an issue with patients who have undergone procedures like bariatric surgery that have disrupted the normal functions of the gastrointestinal tract.
The adverse physiological effects of the strong chemotherapeutic drugs can be eased with nutrient and immune therapies that help restore a patient’s health and well-being. These IV nutrient therapies not only improve the quality of a chemo patient’s life by improving how they feel but they have been shown to be positive in helping to recover a patient’s immune system response and extending their survival rate. Additionally, mood and stress enhancement therapies help to deal with the emotional strain of treatment.
Pre and Post Surgery
Most patients enter surgery in less than optimal condition and their condition often worsens state after surgery. Optimizing nutrition or fluid balance improves patient comfort and increases his and her chances for a quicker and better recovery and helps to alleviate many of the complications that occur in surgery such as reducing nausea and vomiting.
Vitamin C is known to reduce the level of histamines in the body and to bolster allergy fighting hormones in the adrenal glands. Compounds like zinc help increase the availability of white blood cells and infection fighting T cells. Zinc supplementation has even been shown to slow the growth of cancer cells.
Pantothenic acid B5 plays a role in metabolism and immune function. It naturally stimulates antibody formation and is known as the anti-stress vitamin
Essential fatty acid supplementation reduces inflammation and can help moderate the immune response.
Antioxidants like vitamin E, D and C reduce free radical damage
Sports Medicine and Performance
Enhancing performance is all about nutrition and providing the best possible nourishment to the cellular energy production process
Infections and Immune System Enhancement
The synergistic properties of Vitamin C with antibiotics and antiviral treatments relate to the ability of this vitamin to stimulate the immune system. Most antibiotics work by disrupting the growth process of bacteria. Once the bacteria’s development has been interrupted the vitamin C enhanced immune system can quickly clean up the infection.
IV Additives Frequently Used
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning it can’t be produced by the body. Nevertheless, it has many roles in your body and has been linked to impressive health benefits. It is water-soluble and found in many fruits and vegetables, including oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bell peppers, broccoli, kale and spinach.
- One of the main reasons people take vitamin C supplements is to boost their immunity.
- Vitamin C is involved in many parts of the immune system.
- Vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, which help protect the body against infections.
- Vitamin C helps these white blood cells function more effectively while protecting them from damage by potentially harmful molecules, such as free radicals.
- Vitamin C is an essential part of the skin’s defense system. It is actively transported to the skin where it can act as an antioxidant and help strengthen the skin’s barriers
- Vitamin C may shorten wound healing time
- Strong Antioxidant That May Reduce the Risk of Chronic Diseases
- May Help Battle High Blood Pressure
- Fights Heart Disease Risk Factors, Potentially Lowering Heart Disease Risk
- Helps Prevent Iron Deficiencies by Improving Iron Absorption
- Vitamin C is needed to make collagen. It strengthens the connective tissue in skin, muscle, and blood vessels.
Magnesium deficiency may lead to irregular heartbeats and can cause or worsen multiple medical conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, as well as lead to anxiety and tense muscles or spasms.
Magnesium IV Drip effectively enhances the function of the muscular and nervous systems. Your body needs magnesium to perform over 300 biochemical reactions necessary to sustain life. Magnesium is also a natural calcium channel blocker that helps reduce the workload of the heart.
Anxiety is often treated with prescription medication. Many doctors do not consider that a lack of magnesium can stress your body and create or worsen anxiety. The Magnesium Push has proven effective in the treatment of anxiety in many of our patients.
- Cardiac Arrhythmias
Magnesium deficiency causes major stress on the muscular system. The most important muscle in the human body is the heart. There is an intricate connection between magnesium and the heart’s electrical stability. Magnesium deficiency may cause irregular heartbeats commonly known as arrhythmias. Magnesium IV/Push therapy results in relaxation of the heart and dilates blood vessels. This allows the heart to work more efficiently.
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Some reports suggest that magnesium may be helpful in lessening the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.
A severe deficiency of magnesium can cause the muscles in the body to constantly spasm. Since the muscular and nervous systems are both involved in the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, there is believed to be a link between the disease and a deficiency in magnesium. Balancing of the levels of magnesium in your body through Magnesium IV therapy can improve and deter the symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
Magnesium is a powerful vasodilator. When blood vessels are dilated, blood pressure comes down dramatically.
You will receive your Magnesium IV Drip in our relaxing, comfortable IV suite. You can read a book, listen to music, or even work on your laptop computer while you are being treated.
- Zinc helps maintain the integrity of skin and mucosal membranes.
- Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system.
- A lack of zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness. Zinc has a crucial role in regulating how neurons communicate with one another, affecting how memories are formed and how we learn.
- Zinc is beneficial in reducing the duration and severity of the common cold in healthy people, when taken within 24 hours of onset of symptoms.
- Patients experiencing chronic wounds or ulcers often have deficient zinc metabolism and lower serum zinc levels.
- Zinc is often used in skin creams for treating diaper rash or other skin irritations.
- Several studies and trials have linked poor zinc status with low sperm quality.
An estimated 6% of people in the US and UK aged 60 or older have vitamin B12 deficiency, while about 20% have low to normal or borderline deficient levels. B12 deficiency can occur in one of two ways. Either your diet lacks adequate amounts of it or your body is unable to fully absorb it from the food you eat.
Those at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency include: Older adults, People with gastrointestinal disorders, such as Crohn’s disease or celiac disease, Those who have had gastrointestinal surgeries, such as bariatric surgery or bowel resection surgery, People on a strict vegan diet, Those who take metformin for blood sugar control, Those taking proton pump inhibitors for chronic heartburn. In many older adults, the secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is reduced, causing a reduction in the absorption of vitamin B12.

In women, B vitamins are especially important for women who are pregnant and breastfeeding. These vitamins aid in fetal brain development as well as reduce the risk of birth defects. And for expectant mothers, B vitamins may boost energy levels, ease nausea, and lower the risk of developing preeclampsia.
In men, B vitamins are thought to increase testosterone levels in men, which naturally decrease with age. They may also help men build muscle and increase strength.
Chromium is often used as a weight-loss aid and to control blood sugar. Chromium works by aiding the action of insulin in the body. Insulin is essential for metabolism and storage of carbs, fats, and proteins in the body.
Selenium is part of glutathione peroxidase which protects cell components from oxidative damage due to peroxides produced in cellular metabolism.
- Proteins are composed of Amino Acids which fit together to create muscle.
- There are Non-Essential Amino Acids that already exist and are manufactured biologically within your body. Essential Amino Acids have to come from food or supplements.
- Amino Acids, however, do far more than build up our muscles.
- They are necessary for the synthesis of proteins, enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, metabolic pathways, mental stabilization.
- They repair damaged tissue while generating new ones.
- They, like water, are pivotal in almost every bodily
