Intravenous therapy or IV therapy is the infusion of liquid substances directly into a vein. These types of infusions are commonly referred to as drips. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and medications throughout the body. Intravenous therapy may be used for fluid administration to correct electrolyte imbalances, to deliver medications and for blood transfusions.
At Health Integrative we offer a variety of IV therapy services directly provided by a physician
Question: How long will my IV nutrient therapy take?
Answer: It varies. Depending on your specific treatment, your may have a quick “IV push,” which takes just a few minutes, or a longer-lasting IV drip, which may take 30 minutes and up to 4 hours for NAD IV's.
Question: Will my insurance cover treatment?
Answer: Insurance does not cover your IV therapy. This is an out of pocket expense.
Question: How many treatments of IV vitamin therapy will I need?
Answer: Every case is different. It all depends on your particular condition and your individual response to treatment. Chronic diseases often require more regular treatments. However, many of our patients report feeling symptomatic relief, more energy, and an overall sense of well-being after just one session of intravenous vitamin therapy!
Question: What are the various types of IV's offered?
Modified Myers’ Cocktail
This custom IV, full of vitamins and minerals, is designed to promote wellness and to boost immune function. It can help increase energy and is also used to help prevent or reduce the duration of acute illnesses like the common cold and flu, as well as help the body during times of increased stress.
Myers’ Cocktail w/ Extra Vitamin C
Our Modified Myers’ Cocktail with an extra boost of vitamin C. It can help increase energy and is also used to help prevent or reduce the duration of acute illnesses like the common cold or flu, as well as help the body during times of increased stress.
Glutathione, also known as GSH, is a powerful antioxidant that is responsible for detoxification, targeting free-radicals and stimulating immune function. Supplementing with glutathione can encourage cellular health, promote longevity and cognitive health. It can also improve immune system functioning and can help slow the signs of aging. Other benefits include improved muscle repair and recovery times, an increase in muscle production, less joint pain, and an increase in energy levels.
NAD+ IV treatments
Replenishing cellular levels of NAD+ gives your cells the opportunity to live healthier lives. Research shows that as we age levels of NAD+ decline substantially either due to lifestyle, diet, stress, toxins, or a host of other factors. Because of its key role in many biological processes when NAD+ levels are low we are more susceptible to neuro and muscular degeneration. Low levels compromise our cardiometabolic health and our capacity for cellular repair and resiliency. Declining levels of NAD+ compromises our cells’ ability to create energy, resulting in accelerated aging and an increased risk of disease.
NAD+ promotes healing from the inside out and improves many of the painful and debilitating symptoms of chronic illnesses. Low levels of NAD+ have a negative impact on several biological processes including cellular energy production, DNA repair, immune response, inflammation, redox reactions, and circadian rhythm. NAD+ is administered as a high-dose intravenous infusion, it can bypass the digestive system and access your cells directly for better absorption.
NAD+ treatments improve symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety, PTSD and addictions. Oxidative stress increases with age and leads to degenerative processes that can cause both physical and emotional pain. Restoring energy deficiencies at the cellular level boosts vital cell functions, especially in the brain where many of these issues are triggered.
Restoring cellular levels of NAD+ translates to increased energy, improved muscle recovery, and less soreness for chronic pain suffers as well as athletes after strenuous workouts. NAD+ is found in every cell of your body and plays a critical role in regulating cellular metabolism and energy homeostasis. NAD+ Therapy is a natural way to enhance overall mobility and performance.
Patients who have received NAD+ infusions report better focus and mental clarity. Neuroinflammation, amyloid-beta plaques, mitochondrial damage, and increased oxidative stress contribute to cognitive decline. NAD+- dependent enzymes called sirtuins have shown to benefit mental and brain health by acting on amyloid plaques, repairing DNA, lowering inflammation, and promoting neuronal function, which in turn can prevent or delay the onset of mild cognitive decline.
As we have seen, those most susceptible to complications from the flu, and now COVID-19 are the elderly or those with underlying health conditions. A weakened immune system is naturally slower to recognize and respond to pathogens, which allows a faster spread of disease. NAD+ IV Therapy can be an important tool in boosting the health of the immune system.
If you have had cancer or endometriosis, NAD+ IV Therapy may not be suitable for you. Please consult your physician prior to treatment.
