What is IV Therapy?

IV therapy is the intravenous delivery of specific nutrients and compounds that are naturally found in the body but get depleted by age, illness, stress or injury.

IV therapy is an effective and fast way to help restore and replenish nutrient deficiencies that can occur with absorption problems, aging and illnesses.

Why should you consider iV Therapy?

By flooding the cells with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and molecules, you’re replenishing your body with vital nutrients – at a cellular level.

And since diseases and aging often originate in the cells, restoring optimal levels of these nutrients can have a great impact on your health.

benefits of iV THERAPY

therapeutic Advantages

Bypass the gut

IV therapy delivers nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the gut for 100% absorption.

Faster delivery

IV therapy allows for fast delivery of nutrients. Most treatments are done in less than 1 hour.

Higher dosages

Higher, therapeutic dosages of vital nutrients are achieved through an IV.

Better results

Since IV therapy delivers important nutrients at higher doses, greater results are possible. 

why bypassing the gut is so important

Higher doses of therapeutic nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, avoiding the gastrointestinal (GI) system. This is especially advantageous for anyone with GI issues like “leaky gut”, poor digestion, or compromised absorption. Bypassing the digestive tract and going straight to the bloodstream means nothing gets lost along the way. Your blood, cells and tissues are getting the full effects of the nutrients, where they are needed most.

IV therapy and injections offered

We offer several IV options to address and support different health concerns. From general wellness, detoxification, immune system support and for improving energy levels – most everyone can benefit from IV therapy.

PC IV  helps to restore the appropriate balance of lipids in cell membranes to maintain healthy brain function, liver function, healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range, and gastric mucosal protection.

PC is also widely used to support healthy aging.  

Consider this therapy a “deep cleaning” for the brain cells and mitochondria.

BENEFITS:

  • Anti-aging
  • Hormonal support
  • Mast Cell Activation Syndrome
  • Liver disease support
  • Support brain function
  • Metabolic abnormalities, and more

PRICE: $500

NAD+ IV is the active cofactor form of vitamin B3  – a carrier molecule used by every cell in the body for energy metabolism. NAD+ is essential for cell viability and function.

NAD+ levels decline as we age. When NAD+ is depleted it causes “mitochondrial dysfunction” a condition that is linked to aging, as well as virtually all chronic diseases’. NAD+ is natural, restorative and protective.

BENEFITS:

  • Anti-aging
  • Boosts energy
  • Mental clarity
  • Immune system support
  • Helps with addiction recovery
  • Protects and helps repair DNA and more...

  • Post-Covid, Long-Hauler syndrome
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia and more...

PRICE: $275

PC Push is required before the full dose of PC IV to see how your body responds. Phosphatidylcholine and glutathione support detoxification, cellular repair and brain function.

PC helps to restore the appropriate balance of lipids in cell membranes.  

Consider this therapy a “deep cleaning” for the brain cells and mitochondria.

BENEFITS:

  • Advanced aging
  • Hormonal support 
  • Mast Cell Activation Syndrome
  • Liver disease support 
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Metabolic abnormalities, and more

The NAD+ PC Combo gives you the benefits of both IVs in one visit. PC is given first, to clean or “prime” the cells and to prepare them for maximum absorption of the NAD+. Better absorption allows for the most potential benefits. The PC and NAD+ IV COMBO is more efficient and less expensive than doing each service separately.

BENEFITS:

  • Anti-aging
  • Cellular repair
  • Immune Support
  • Energy
  • Mental clarity
  • Metabolism
  • Detoxification and more…

PRICE: $750

Microneedling with Exosomes and platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an innovative skin treatment that combines the power of your own plasma (PRP) and stem cell derivatives (exosomes) with microneedling for an overall more youthful, radiant complexion.
