IV (intravenous) therapy is an effective method of delivering vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream and bypassing the gastrointestinal system. We all have limitations on how much we can absorb from our diet and supplements. As we age the intestines become compromised, stomach acid decreases and nutrient absorption becomes more difficult. Vitamins and minerals are responsible for virtually every physiological and biological function that take place in the human body and due to poor absorption and nutrient deficiency, a vast array of health conditions may result. With IV Vitamin Therapy, patients’ nutrient levels rise more significantly and have tremendous effects on metabolism, energy, and disease prevention and treatment while being administered in a healthy, safe manner.

Your doctor will prepare an IV formula specifically for you based on your individual health needs. The IV can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours based on the indications. A variety of substances can be given intravenously including: vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Specific blood tests (i.e. Intracellular Nutrient and Antioxidant Testing and Micronutrient Testing) can be done to assess if there are any nutrient deficiencies, so more specific treatments can be implemented.
*Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is an inherited condition in which a person’s body doesn’t have enough of the G6PD enzyme. G6PD helps red blood cells function normally. Patients with this deficiency should not receive high doses of vitamin C infusions because it can cause hemolytic anemia.
