IV Nutritional Therapy

The best way to get the nutrients you need for good health is always through real, whole food – nature’s perfect delivery system. But sometimes we need more, either to supplement what diet doesn’t quite provide enough of or to support the body in its natural efforts to heal.

That extra nutrition can be delivered most powerfully and effectively through IV drip therapies. Instead of sending nutrients through your digestive system, they go right into your circulation, where they can be more fully absorbed.

Some drip therapies can be safely used as a part of detox from mercury and other heavy metals, as well as the countless chemicals we’re each exposed to daily through environmental pollution and a wide range of consumer products and industrial processes.

Among the most popular and effective therapies our nurse practitioner is able to provide:

High-dose Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and major antioxidant, stabilizing free radicals so they can’t destroy healthy cells in your body. It can reduce inflammation and boost your immune system, as well.

Myers Cocktail

No, it’s not the kind of cocktail you get at a bar. It’s a blend of B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and vitamin C – a mix first created in the 1970s by Maryland physician Dr. John Myers. It’s a great energy-booster that supports healthy cellular function.


Glutathione is an antioxidant that helps your body produce and recycle other antioxidants. An immunity booster, it helps tame inflammation and is often used for detox.


Ozone is a powerful disinfectant, effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungi alike. The extra oxygen it delivers to your cells stimulates energy production and increases antioxidant protection.
