IV THERAPY DESCRIPTIONS
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE IV THERAPY
IV therapy for athletes was created to boost your exercise to a higher level and target both your energy levels and metabolism with a specific combination of essential electrolytes, minerals, vitamins and IV fluids. This is the best choice for you if you are preparing for, or recovering from, an athletic event. The body has an incredible, innate ability to heal itself, but there are many factors that unfortunately contribute to less than optimal recovery. There are many nutrients that are important for the body’s stress reaction and healing. Taking healing steps before and after an athletic event to strengthen your body and alleviate body stress, which in turn can help to improve your recovery and healing time.
Ingredients: Tri-Amino (Arginine, Citruline, Ornithine), Vitamin B Complex, Methylcobalamin (B12), Pyroxidine (B6), Dexpanthenol (B5), L-Lysine, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Zinc.
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID (ALA) IV THERAPY
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a naturally occurring fat and water-soluble antioxidant, which plays a significant role in several metabolic processes in the body. It is considered a “universal antioxidant” since it demonstrates antioxidant function as well as contributes in the production of other important antioxidants such as glutathione and several vitamins. ALA is essential for cell metabolism through its effects on mitochondria (power sources of cells) and cellular energy production. Because ALA can pass easily into the brain, it may help protect the brain and nerve tissue. Researchers are investigating it as a potential treatment for stroke and other brain problems involving free radical damage, such as dementia. Studies also support that ALA helps lower blood sugar levels. It improves insulin sensitivity and lowers blood sugar, helping diabetics by aiding in damaged nerves and arteries. Its ability to eliminate free radicals may help people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, who have pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in the arms and legs from nerve damage. IV therapy allows much higher doses of ALA to be administered, as opposed to oral administration, and research has found that higher doses seem to have an anti-cancer effect. A Complete Blood Count lab dated within the last six months is needed prior to beginning Alpha Lipoic Acid therapy.
Ingredients: Alpha Lipoic Acid
ANTI-AGING IV THERAPY
Anti-Aging intravenous therapy is a strong blend of vitamins and antioxidants that support strong cognition and healthy aging. This IV should be used in a series of ten IVs to help support the repair mechanism in the body while strengthening brain function, bones, connective tissue and energy. Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal age change in the telomere. Telomeres are the little caps on the end of the chromosomes that carry our DNA. Many think of them as the tips of the shoelaces that keep everything from unraveling. Telomeres get shorter with age and several other environmental and lifestyle influences can speed up telomere shortening, speeding up the aging process. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases.
Ingredients: Vitamin C, Vitamin B Complex, L-Carnitine, L-Glycine, L-Lysine, Methylcobalamin (B12), Magnesium, Calcium, Minerals (Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium), Glutathione.
GLUTATHIONE IV THERAPY
Glutathione is the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant and is found in every cell in the body. Glutathione is a tri-peptide (composed of three amino acids, Glutamic Acid, Cysteine, and Glycine) that bolsters the immune system and also helps neutralize damaging free radicals. Antioxidants can even help your body repair free radical damage caused by such things as stress, radiation, infections, drugs, medications, malnutrition, and aging. Animal and laboratory studies have demonstrated that glutathione has the potential to fight almost any disease, particularly those associated with aging, since free radical damage is the cause of many of the diseases of old age. Some of the best studies done on Glutathione have been conducted in cancer, and liver and heart transplant recovery. One study involved women with ovarian cancer who were being treated with chemotherapy. Some of the women were also treated with intravenous Glutathione. Those given the Glutathione not only had fewer side effects from the chemotherapy but also had better overall survival rates. The Glutathione stores decrease as we age and with exposure to drugs, environmental toxins, cigarette smoke, and poor diets. When a deficiency in Glutathione develops, oral supplements do not offer an answer because the absorption in the gut is extremely poor. Injection or intravenous administration is really the gold standard to really maximize the antioxidant effects of Glutathione. Many of our Custom IV infusion formulations contain Glutathione. You can also add on Glutathione to your choice of IV Vitamin Therapy or just receive a stand alone Glutathione infusion or injection.
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE IV THERAPY
The theory behind Hydrogen Peroxide treatment is that it releases extra oxygen inside the body, killing viruses, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. At other infusion centers across the United States they have seen improved outcomes for patients when using Hydrogen Peroxide as an aid to conventional treatments for chronic illnesses such as Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Viral infections including Herpes and Shingles, HIV, and Environmental Allergies/Sensitivities. We also use hydrogen peroxide to help treat influenza, common cold, sinus infections, stomach viruses, bacterial infections, fungal infections, and more!
Due to the short shelf life and storage requirements for Hydrogen Peroxide IV Therapy we will need a few days’ notice in order provide the Hydrogen Peroxide IV Therapy.
Ingredients: Hydrogen Peroxide, Magnesium.
HYDRATION IV THERAPY
The hydration IV includes a blend of IV fluids and electrolytes formulated for quick hydration, leaving you feeling revitalized and refreshed.
Ingredients: Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium.
IMMUNE BOOSTER & SUPER IMMUNE BOOSTER IV THERAPY
Immune Booster boosts immune function to prevent and speed recovery from illness. Ideal at the onset of a cold or flu and an essential IV when preparing for travel. Our Immune Booster IV uses the combination of Tri-Aminos, B12, Lysine, Vitamin C and Trace Minerals for supplementation and immune system optimization during the cold season.
Our Super Immune Booster has the addition of Calcium Gluconate, Magnesium Chloride, double the Vitamin C, Zinc, and Complex B Vitamins group that help support the immune system, and also if you suffer from aphthous ulcers or cold sores, will aid in the reduction of outbreaks. This B Vitamin group also have specifically been shown to play a role in wound healing. Super Immune Booster also contains Glutathione a powerful natural antioxidant and is found in every cell in the body.
Ingredients: Tri-Amino (Arginine, Citruline, Ornithine), Methylcobalamin (B12), L-Lysine, Vitamin C, Minerals (Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium).
LATE NIGHT RELIEF IV THERAPY
The Late Night Relief IV Therapy is a blend of IV fluids, electrolytes, vitamins, and medications for hydration, headaches, body aches and gastrointestinal upset to detoxify your body and help you overcome your hangover symptoms quickly.
Ingredients: Methylcobalamin (B12), Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin B Complex, Minerals (Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium), Ketorolac, Ondansetron, Famotidine.
LIPO INJECTION WEIGHT LOSS THERAPY
Lipo Injection Therapy are twice weekly injections to aid in the bodies weight loss. Lipo injections contains a mixture of compounds, vitamin and non-vitamin compounds, that may aid in the reduction of adipose tissue (fat). Lipo-Mic contains just the non-vitamin compounds of Methionine, Inositol, and Choline Chloride (MIC). Lipo-B contains Methionine, Inositol, Choline Chloride, and B12. Lipo-C contains Methionine, Inositol, Choline Chloride, L-Carnitine, Thiamine HCl, and B5. The mixture of compounds individually may be effective, however in combination they may exhibit more lipotropic activity than when administered alone in and act in a synergistic fashion. Injection of this mixture of lipotropic compounds may be more effective than oral supplementation, this is due to the increased bioavailability of parenteral exposure.
These lipotropic agents are structurally and functionally closely related to the B-vitamins, and are involved in the homeostasis of energy production from fat. These compounds are often employed together in the hope of potentiating fat-loss. If you want to give your weight loss regimen a synergistic blast we recommend combining twice weekly Lipo-Mic injections with a series of ten of the Weight Loss IV Therapy sessions which provides additional B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12 along with other nutrients such as L-Carnitine, Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Gluconate, and Taurine to give your weight loss regimen, along with a healthy diet and exercise, a real BOOST!
The non-vitamin compounds (MIC) that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism, elevate the movement of and utilization of fat, and provide the needed metabolic environment of the body for a fatty acid (fat) mobilization and utilization.
Ingredients: Tri-Amino (Arginine, Citruline, Ornithine), Minerals (Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium), Methylcobalamin (B12), Vitamin B Complex, L- Lysine, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Glutathione, Zinc Sulfate.
MIGRAINE RELIEF IV THERAPY
Greater than twenty million Americans suffer from migraines, a vascular headache that can cause a disabling cascade of symptoms. Our Migraine Relief IV Therapy contains a combination B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, Calcium Gluconate, Lidocaine, Anti-Inflammatory medication, and Magnesium. Magnesium levels affect serotonin receptors, and also have an effect on nitric oxide synthesis and release, as well as on NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartic Acid) receptors—all brain structures and chemicals suspected to be important in migraines due to their roles in structure function and on blood vessel dilation and constriction. In the brain, fluctuating serotonin levels can send blood vessels into spasm and aggravating the symptoms of a migraine. There is scientific evidence that supports magnesium can aid in the prevention and treatment of migraine and cluster headaches. Magnesium is a safe alternative to try for those suffering from recurrent or disabling migraines or other types of headaches. Some B Vitamins can help reduce the incidence of migraines by helping the brain cells utilize energy. Researchers have found that some people who get migraines may not have enough energy stored in their brain cells. We add the anti-inflammatory medication with the addition of lidocaine for more immediate pain relief.
Ingredients: Lidocaine, Magnesium, Methylcobalamin (B12), Vitamin B Complex, Calcium, Ketorolac.
MYER'S COCKTAIL & SUPERCHARGED MEYER'S COCKTAIL IV THERAPY
A Myers' cocktail has long been a popular intravenous therapy. The late John Myers, MD, was the first to introduce this vitamin and mineral treatment. He designed this formula to potentially treat several clinical conditions including fatigue, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, and many more. John Myer, MD was a well- known doctor from Boston that is one of the pioneers of Nutritional IV therapies and researched outcomes using many of the ingredients in our standard IV. His research found medical benefits for so many different conditions that his work has continued past his death in 1984.
Our traditional Myer’s Cocktail IV Therapy includes a classic combination of IV fluids, vitamins, electrolytes, and antioxidants that can help treat a wide range of conditions and leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Our Super Charged Myers’ IV Therapy is based off the well-known original Myers’ Cocktail, but we have added much higher doses of nutrients. Our Super Charged Myers’ contains glutathione and double the vitamin C as our traditional Myer’s Cocktail and several high dose vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants that are great for general nutritional supplementation, as well as an aide in the treatment of chronic illnesses. We also use our Supercharged IV in the treatment and support of depression, drug detox, inflammatory conditions, chronic syndromes, athletic training, and cardiovascular disease.
Ingredients: Magnesium, Calcium, Pyroxidine (B6), Dexpanthenol (B5), Vitamin B Complex, Methylcobalamin (B12), Vitamin C.
Supercharged Ingredients: Tri-Amino (Arginine, Citruline, Ornithine), Minerals (Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium), Vitamin B Complex, L-Carnitine, Methylcobalamin (B12), Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin C, Glutathione.
NAD+ IMMUNE BOOSTER IV THERAPY
NAD+ (nicotinamide adenosine dinucleotide) is a molecule that occurs naturally in every cell of our body. Compelling research has shown that supplementing with NAD+ may help patients withdraw from addictive substances safely, overcome anxiety and depression, handle acute and chronic stress more effectively, and cope better with PTSD. Modern research shows that NAD may actually prolong life, protect DNA, slow down aging and help restore function in neurodegenerative illness due to its effects on the genes that govern aging. Studies have shown that NAD switches “off” the genes of aging, helps to extend life span, increases endurance, improves cognitive function, and enhances cellular energy. These benefits add up to a system-wide slowing and reversal of certain aging processes as well as disease prevention. NAD’s ability to reduce inflammation, increase DNA repair and improve energy makes it an essential treatment to help longevity.
Unfortunately, drugs, alcohol, stress, medications, chronic illness and age all contribute to a decrease in our NAD stores. As NAD goes down, so does our energy. Cells age and deteriorate, and health falls apart at the very root. NAD+ Immune Booster IV Therapy aims to undo that process by replenishing NAD. Using IV infusion therapy we administer this anti-aging compound directly into the blood circulation, bypassing the gut, so cells have access to as much as they need. Between 3-14 consecutive days of NAD+ Immune Booster IV Therapy combined with other nutrient infusions are typically recommended for full effect. Length of treatment is dependent on your individual needs and what you are trying to accomplish. For those receiving NAD+ Immune Booster IV Therapy for non-medical conditions such as age management, disease prevention, performance enhancement or general nutrition, NAD therapies can be given in many different packages. There have been success with single therapies or once monthly for a year.
Prior to the initiation of NAD therapy a Provider consultation is required and, if needed, baseline lab work. Any of our NAD IV Therapy packages of 10 sessions the Provider consultation is included in the package price. Any needed lab work is extra.
PAIN RELIEF IV THERAPY
Chronic pain may originate with an initial trauma/injury or infection, or there may be an ongoing cause of pain. Some people suffer chronic pain in the absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage. With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. This can be both physically and emotionally taxing on a person. The most frequent sources of pain come from headaches, joint pain, injury, and backaches. Generalized muscle or nerve pain can also develop into a chronic condition. The emotional toll of chronic pain also can make pain worse. Anxiety, stress, depression, anger, and fatigue interact in complex ways with chronic pain and may decrease the body’s production of natural painkillers; moreover, such negative feelings may increase the level of substances that amplify sensations of pain, causing a vicious cycle of pain for the person. Even the body’s most basic defenses may be compromised. There is considerable evidence that unrelenting pain can suppress the immune system. Our Pain Relief IV Therapy helps to replace some of the key nutrients, such as B vitamins, calcium gluconate, and magnesium that can help with reducing the perception of pain, we also include the powerful antioxidant glutathione, plus the addition of lidocaine and an anti-inflammatory medication for more immediate pain relief.
Ingredients: Lidocaine, Magnesium, Methylcobalamin (B12), Calcium, Ketorolac, Glutathione.
PRE & POST SURGERY IV THERAPY
This is the best choice for you if you are preparing for or recovering from surgery.
If you are having an elective surgical procedure in the future you should consider preparing the body for surgery 4-8 weeks prior to your surgery date. Surgery can be a heavy stress on the body and proper preparation can reduce the effects of stress on the body before and after surgery. The body has an incredible, innate ability to heal itself, but there are many factors that unfortunately contribute to less than optimal recovery.
Age, daily stressors, hormone and micro nutrient deficiencies, environmental toxins, poor diet, lack of exercise and tobacco abuse can all have an impact on how well you heal. Just smoking alone will often require twice the healing time when compared to a non-smoker. One way to improve your recovery is to get more of the important nutrients than your diet alone provides. There are many nutrients that are important for the body’s stress reaction and wound healing. Take healing steps before and after surgery to strengthen your immune system and alleviate body stress, which can help improve your recovery and healing time.
Our Pre/Post Surgery IV Therapy includes an array of B vitamins, Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium Gluconate, Vitamin C, Trace Minerals, Glutathione and other important nutrients that help the body prepare for surgery and helps heal and repair tissue damage from surgery.
Ingredients: Vitamin B Complex, L-Carnitine, Calcium, Methylcobalamin (B12), Pyroxidine (B6), Dexpanthenol (B5), Magnesium, Minerals (Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium), Vitamin C, Glutathione, Zinc Sulfate.
VITAMIN C IV THERAPY
This IV therapy formulation is a high concentration of Vitamin C that is designed to boost the immune system through its antioxidant functions with the addition of Calcium Gluconate, Magnesium Chloride, and Potassium Chloride. We offer 25 grams, 50 grams, 75 grams, and 100 grams Vitamin C Infusions. A G6PD lab is required prior to initiation of therapy.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function. In addition, vitamin C is involved in the process of transporting fat into cellular organelles called mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.
Studies have shown that in critically ill patients high dose Vitamin C administration led to patients having more stable blood pressures as well as decreasing the likelihood of mechanical ventilation.

Ingredients: Vitamin C, magnesium, Calcium, Potassium.
WEIGHT LOSS IV THERAPY
With the current obesity epidemic we are excited for the weight loss IV series. This is not a magical IV drip that will burn away fat, but rather an adjuvant to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. The IV ingredients were selected for their role in the fat burning process (lipolysis), metabolism, and food cravings. This combination will help keep the energy up during the detox phase of your diet, while also aiding in weight reduction and appetite suppression throughout the remaining phases. We recommend our Weight Loss IV Therapy to any patient beginning a diet, maintaining weight goals, or those who are trying to lose weight but having trouble with a plateau. For those looking for a real synergistic boost to their weight loss regimen we also recommend combing a series of ten weekly Weight Loss IV Therapy sessions with twice weekly Lipo-Mic injections. (Please see our section on “Lipo Injection Weight Loss Therapy”)
Ingredients: Vitamin B Complex, L-Carnitine, Magnesium, Methylcobalamin (B12), Calcium, Taurine.
