Although one of our first priorities is to help the body heal through diet and lifestyle changes, there are some instances where it is beneficial to add in extra nutrients using intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) nutritional support. This type of therapy can be useful for many different symptoms and disease processes, from restoring balance by treating a simple B12 deficiency to customized formulas designed to treat complex diseases that can affect the immune system.

These could include, but are not limited to Lyme’s disease, Epstein-Barr infection, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis (or any other auto-immune disease), and cancer. Fatigue due to adrenal exhaustion can also benefit from nutritional IV’s that contain B complex, vitamin C, magnesium and other minerals to support adrenal function. A basic IV with electrolytes can be perfect for an individual suffering from temporary dehydration during the flu or food poisoning. A hydrating IV with amino acids can also be a great addition to a sports nutrition program for endurance athletes that want to take their results to the highest possible level. If caught at first sign of symptoms, a nutritional IV can be a perfect way to ward off cold and flu, or as a preventative boost for the immune system.

A intravenous micronutrient therapy takes about an hour to infuse, however for a super quick boost for the immune system, a Wellness injection is the perfect solution! These are a big hit during the fall/winter months and use a combination of B12 and specific immune boosting homeopathics that can be given as a quick IM shot in the arm in less than 5 minutes!
