IV Nutrition therapy is one of the most effective ways to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and fluids to your body, and is more efficient than oral supplements. This technique bypasses your digestive system and is administered directly into your bloodstream. Your body is able to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients and fluids since nothing is lost as a result of the digestive process. In addition, vitamins and nutrients become immediately available to your cells for use for fast results.
Our bodies need a consistent amount of vitamins and minerals to promote homeostasis and optimal health. Vitamin deficiencies can contribute to a variety of acute and long-term conditions. Antioxidants are an essential part of maintaining a healthy immune system, detoxifying your body and removing free radicals that can contribute to cellular damage. Antioxidants also play a role in energy production.
Intravenous (IV) fluid infusions deliver saline solution through a small catheter and tubing directly into the bloodstream. This solution usually includes vitamin supplements that are tailored to the individual patient. During therapy, the nurse inserts an IV line which is attached to a bag of saline solution. The bag is then hung above the patient’s head. IV therapy bags are designed to let gravity, as opposed to a syringe or other forced technique, carry fluid into the veins over time.
Side effects rarely happen if at all. If they do they are usually minor and short lived and can include bruising or bleeding at IV site, warming or cooling sensation in arm, chest or stomach, tasting the vitamins or having vitamin smell in your urine. Our licensed staff are trained to manage all side effects that may occur.

Our IV Nutrition specialist is a Family Nurse Practitioner who is trained and experienced in administering IV treatments. She is supervised by our Medical Director, who is an MD.

Our IV treatments typically last between 30 – 60 minutes depending on the individual.
IV hydration goes straight to your bloodstream bypassing the GI tract and absorbing 100% of the nutrients. Typically you will feel the effects within an hour of treatment. Some of our drip cocktails are designed for long term benefits and may not provide immediate effects.
Depending on your health goals, some treatments require 1-2 IVs per week while some people benefit from monthly IV treatments. It is all based on what the client is trying to achieve and the recommendation of the Nurse Practitioner. Each IV treatment is customized based on the patient.
