People with compromised digestion often have difficulty absorbing the nutrients they need to heal. By using intravenous therapies (IVs) we can bypass the gut and get medicine into the blood stream within minutes. IV s also delivers nutrients in concentrations that are higher than oral supplements allowing us to achieve medicinal doses. Most patients experience profound results from IVs including increased energy and focus, improved immunity and rapid wound healing. Common IVs we offer include Meyer’s cocktails, Super-Immuno IVs, IV vitamin C, Chelation, and the Glutathione push. Dr. Thompson is certified in IV nutritional therapy by IIVNTP.
The Benefits of IV Nutritional Therapy
Many people have compromised digestion and are not able to absorb enough
nutrients orally. By using IV therapy we can bypass the gut and get medicine
dispersed within body in seconds. IV therapy enters the blood stream and bathes
the cells in nutrients. Nutrients are delivered in much higher concentration that oral
supplements, allowing us to achieve therapeutic dosing. Most people experience
profound results from IV nutritional therapy including increased energy and focus,
improved immunity and rapid wound healing.
Who may benefit from IV therapy
IV therapy is customized for each individual to address specific medical concerns. IV
therapy can successfully treat:
• colds and flus
• poor concentration
• heavy metal toxicity
• leaky gut
• nutritional deficiencies
• IV therapy can also be used in conjunction with other treatments to support
patients with cancer, head injury, autoimmunity and heart disease.
After a thorough medical intake our doctors will design an IV protocol that fits
the needs of the patient. These unique formulations can address complex medical
conditions The most common therapeutic IVs are the Multivitamin Mineral Cocktail,
Immunoboost IV, IV vitamin C, Glutathione push and Chelation IV. We also offer a
fast and easy Energy Boost shot.
The Multivitamin Mineral cocktail, also known as a Myer’s cocktail, is a
concentrated and balanced nutritional IV. This infusion takes very little time but
provides exceptional benefit. The Multivitamin Mineral Cocktail provides essential
nutrients, the building blocks for our cells and can be used for:
– Energizing the body
– Improving athletic recovery
– Relaxing the nerves
– Treating G.I. dysfunction
– Strengthening the immune system
The Immunoboost IV is the first line of defense against colds and flus. It is a
concentrated dose of immune stimulating vitamins and other nutrients. When given
during the early stages of an infection this IV can stop a virus before it takes hold.
It can also help eradicate stubborn infections that linger. Immunoboost IVs can
be given frequently to support people suffering from chronic infections or a weak
The High Dose IV vitamin C infusion delivers vitamin C in doses much higher
than oral vitamin C. These higher levels of vitamin C can stimulate white blood cell
activity, support detoxification, and stimulate wound healing. The treatment takes
1-2.5 hours to complete depending on the amount of vitamin C given.
The Glutathione Push is a low volume IV that takes only 5-10 minutes. Glutathione
is found in every cell of the body. It is an extremely important antioxidant also
involved in most of the major detox pathways. The body’s need for glutathione
increases during infection, with toxin exposure and during times of increased stress.
Glutathione can also be used to boost immunity and treat a variety of neurological
disorders from poor concentration to Parkinson’s disease. Glutathione is poorly
absorbed orally so IV administration is one of the only ways to get high levels into
IV Chelation is a safe effective means to mobilize heavy metals so that they can be
eliminated from the body. Toxic heavy metals have become common place in our
environment. Metals like lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic can cause serious
health problems unless they are effectively removed from the body. They have been
linked to a variety of disease including anemia, fatigue, memory loss, infertility, high
blood pressure, and cancer. This is a very comfortable IV which takes ~ 1 hour.
The Energy Boost Shot is a combination B vitamin injection with high dose B-12.
It is used to provide increase energy stamina and focus. This shot is given directly
into the muscle and takes only a few moments. B-12 can be used to heal the nervous
system, treat anemia or as a safe effective energy cocktail.
