CONDITIONS TREATED THROUGH IV THERAPY
IV Nutrient Therapy is used to help treat or improve conditions related to nutrient deficiency, autoimmune conditions, chronic illness and short-term illnesses such as the common cold and flu. Some patients have difficulty orally receiving the nutrients and hydration their bodies so desperately needs. This can be because of a number of reasons, including poor digestion, loss of nutrients during the digestive process and slower metabolic functions. IV therapy can provide the nutrients and hydration necessary to put you on the road to recovery.

Vast numbers of people suffer with migraines on a frequent basis, which are often brought on by stress, fatigue, certain foods or MSG. The vitamins, minerals and nutrients in IV Therapy can help the body to better cope with the physiological effects of stress and restore important minerals that are lost with the body’s response to stress.

Fast-paced lifestyles, poor diets, lack of sleep and mental or physical overwork are all factors in general fatigue. Many B vitamins that are offered in IV Therapy can help men and women to boost their energy levels throughout the day. While many foods contain B vitamins, the potency of these vitamins is often lost during the digestive process; however, IV Therapy injects the vitamins directly into the bloodstream, allowing them to be immediately used. An IV Therapy specialist can help patients to increase their general energy levels with specialized nutrient prescriptions.
Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome
High stress levels for an extended period of time often lead to Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, or tired adrenal glands. People with Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome commonly suffer from constant mental and physical fatigue, insomnia, cravings for salty foods, intolerance to stress and difficulty getting out of bed in the morning. Nutrients such as B Vitamins, high dosages of vitamin C and Meyer’s Cocktail can often help to restore adrenal gland function and improve the symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.

An IV Therapy specialist can help patients with depression determine which nutrients should be a part of their IV Therapy prescription in order to improve their specific condition.
A night of excessive drinking can lead to withdrawals the next day and symptoms that include a headache, drowsiness, sweating, nausea, poor concentration, dizziness and anxiety.

Generally, it takes around 21 days for the cells of the liver to heal from one night of excessive drinking; however, many people may drink more frequently than every 21 days, leading to increased hepatic toxicity.
IV Therapy prescriptions that contain glutathione can help to flush out toxins from the liver and the bloodstream. Other nutrients can help the body to heal from repeated alcohol ingestion and replenish nutrients that are lost due to heavy drinking. IV Therapy cocktails that contain B Vitamins, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C can help men and women improve their general health. An IV Therapy specialist can help patients decide which nutrients are best for their individual lifestyle habits and personal health goals.
Cardiovascular disease is one of the most preventable diseases, yet it is the one of the greatest health risks in the United States.

An IV Therapy doctor can help patients to determine what combination of nutrients will best suit their specific needs.
Narcotics cause incredible damage to the nervous and endocrine system, while causing imbalances in different parts of the brain and with neurotransmitters. They also cause toxicity when accumulated in the liver and the bloodstream.

Acute Muscle Spasm
Muscle spasms are often painful constrictions in the blood vessels, and through increased vitamin intake, the nourishment of muscles that have a tendency to spasm can be improved. When the blood is nourished with nutrients, it can nourish muscles and tissues as well, which may reduce muscle spasms. An IV Therapy doctor can create a combination of nutrients that will reduce acute muscle spasms.
Hepatitis C is a dangerous blood-borne virus that can have devastating consequences for the liver, as it often leads to cirrhosis. While the body tries to fight this virus, over 65% of people with Hepatitis C will have chronic hepatitis. Over time, the body’s attempt to fight the virus wears down immune function, and the byproducts of the virus can cause toxins to accumulate. A specialized IV Therapy concoction, such as Myer’s Cocktail can help to restore immune function and rid the body of viral toxins.
IV Therapy can help patients that are fighting cancer or struggling with the effects of chemotherapy.

Nutrients such as glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C can help men and women with gluten intolerance to reduce intestinal inflammation caused from the intake of gluten.
Parkinson’s disease is a neurotransmitter disorder that occurs when the part of the brain that produces dopamine degenerates.
