IV Therapy FAQ
Restoring Nutrition and Balance to the Body
To ensure the proper safety of each patient, make sure appropriate doses and drip rates can be formulated to meet your individual needs, and to make the nurse practitioner aware of any health concerns or underlying conditions, individuals interested and/or seeking IV therapy must first meet with the nurse practitioner and undergo blood work evaluation. Following the initial workup, a patient may then schedule an IV appointment.
Types of IV Therapies
Amino acid supplementation may benefit those whose bodies are lacking in one or more of the essential amino acids.

Nutritional IV Therapy can be effective in treating conditions such as vitamin and mineral deficiencies, chronic fatigue, depression, allergies, and as a supportive therapy during cancer care. The therapy provides a high concentration of nutrients that enables the body to reach high levels of vitamins and minerals not attainable via oral supplements.
Vitamin C therapy provides the body with a high dose of Vitamin C. A Vitamin C deficiency can lead to serious medical conditions such as strokes, heart attacks, and cancer. Generally, Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant, can only be tolerated in small doses orally as it can affect the GI tract. Vitamin C IV Therapy contains a high dose of vitamin C while bypassing the GI irritation. This therapy can be effective in treating medical conditions such as heart disease, immune conditions, and as a supportive therapy during cancer care.
