IV Nutrient Therapy is an intravenous infusion of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids. This therapy has been used for decades to treat a variety of chronic conditions. The late John Myers MD developed one of the most widely administered nutrient formulations: The Myers Cocktail, which includes Magnesium, B-Complex (Thiamine, Riboflavin, Pyrrolidine HCI, Dexpanthenol, Niacinamide, Hydroxocobalamin) and Vitamin C. We also offer enhanced formulations that specifically target immunity, detoxification, gut health, performance and skin health.
Many Illnesses and conditions are associated with digestive disturbances, such as bloating, indigestion, and food sensitivities, which may prevent absorption of vital nutrients. In addition, inflammation, considered a basis of all disease states, both chronic and acute, may cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate or may require higher amounts of nutrients to optimize healing. Intravenous supplementation has been shown to enhance nutrient absorption in patients with heath related gut issues and information.
During Therapy with infusion, the blood levels of nutrients are temporarily increased so that the nutrients are "coaxed" into the cells, reaching and impacting the mitochondria, which is known as the power house of the cell. This boost often dramatically improves energy, hastening recovery and improving health.
IV Nutrient Therapy taps into the power of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids to help boost immunity, fight disease and enhance performance.
IV nutrients may include:
Vitamins: B-Complex, Vitamin C, Magnum, Calcium and Zinc. These vitamins serve as co-factors in more than 300 enzyme systems that support and regulate diverse biochemist reactions that govern protein fat and carbohydrate metabolism, bone, muscle and nerve function, assist in glucose and blood pressure regulation and are required for energy production.
Side effects are rare and almost always limited to local irritation of the vein. Some may experience the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion begins or sharper visual or color perception which may last of 1-2 days. Some people can experience headaches, aches and pains or flu-like symptoms. These symptoms are rare and can occur 1-2 days after therapy. The symptoms are short lived and a sign the body is detoxifying .

Depending on your needs, your practioner may recommend the Myers Cocktail or another form of IV Nutrient Therapy to help address a variety of health conditions, including:
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is more of a focus on what the underlying issues are that cause disease rather than a more traditional "reactive medicine" model.
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
This is not a weight reduction program - it's a disease reduction program. While weight loss often occurs, it's only secondary to the primary goal of helping you achieve and maintain a healthy body composition (lean-muscle-to-fat ratio) to improve health, manage disease, feel better, and reduce your risk of more serious conditions.
