What is Intravenous (IV) Therapy?

Need an extra kick to get through the week, attack that nasty cold, or reach peak athletic performance? Our fast and effective IVs will jumpstart you toward your own health goals. Fight illness, get more energy, look younger, feel better.

Intravenous therapy (IV therapy) is the quickest and safest way to administer vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to enhance immune function, increase energy levels, and help manage a variety of chronic health problems. 

When you take a vitamin orally, it has to navigate your digestive system and your body must do some work to send the nutrients out into the blood system where they can reach the cells. However, when vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are infused intravenously (IV), they are delivered directly into the bloodstream avoiding potential loss of potency from having to navigate the stomach and intestines. Many times, chronic illnesses and a compromised digestive system go hand-in-hand. An IV infusion delivers 100% of each vitamin/mineral administered, providing maximum absorption for expedited results.

IV nutrients can be preventive because they strengthen your body’s defenses. They can also be anti-aging because they promote great skin, hair, and nails – helping you look and feel younger. IV therapy is also an excellent tool to prepare for surgery; it decreases the rate of infections, complications, scar-formation, and hospitalization.

Some of the most common conditions treated with IV therapy are:

  • Asthma, sinus infections, bacterial and viral infections, bladder infection
  • Chemical toxicity, Lyme disease, leaky gut syndrome
  • Chronic fatigue, exhaustion, depression
  • Cold or seasonal allergies
  • COPD, lung disease
  • Fibromyalgia, muscles/joint/body aches
  • Migraine headaches, insomnia  
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Diabetes 
  • Prevention of atherosclerosis
  • Cancer

Our custom blends 

Our therapeutic IV blends are uniquely designed to interact with your immune system and get you feeling and looking better. We offer custom blends designed to maximize your performance, increase your energy levels, strengthen your immune system, and detoxify your body. We also offer the popular “Myers Cocktail” with our own twist! The vitamins and minerals injected in each IV blend supply essential nutrients for normal body metabolism and balance restoration.

The nutrients most commonly injected in our offices are a mix of calcium; magnesium; zinc, selenium; vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 (methylcobalamin/hydroxycobalamin); vitamin C; folic acid; glutathione; and biotin. These vitamin blends can help break down and remove toxicities in the body. Vitamin C and glutathione are known for their ability to help eliminate toxic compounds and speed the healing of connective tissue including tendons and ligaments.

In addition to the potent blends described above, the Osteopathic Center offers comprehensive, individually tailored IV therapy. We begin with nutritional and toxicity testing that helps us understand the state of your health and the particular areas to treat. We then design your custom-tailored infusion mixing an array of nutrients, vitamins,  minerals, and detoxifying agents.

In some cases we employ more advanced techniques like ultraviolet blood irradiation and ozone therapy to treat a wide range of symptoms and aid in the recovery of many illnesses. Due to their direct approach, IV therapies can “jolt” the immune system with a concentration of nutrients, putting acutely and chronically ill patients on a faster road to recovery. IV therapy is particularly useful to treat mercury poisoning and lead poisoning through a procedure called chelation. The chelating agents in these custom IV therapies assist the body in the removal of toxic metals and other harmful substances.

Although stem cell injections have been a game-changer for many people, sometimes we need to look deeper for an even greater, long-term result. Some patients ask if an infection could be a contributing factor in their arthritis, for example. Yes, it can. We can use ozone or UVBI in addition to the injections. We see even better results when we do because ozone improves oxygenation, microcirculation, and kills infectious agents.

Ozone therapy 

Ozone therapy is a very versatile, time-honored technique that is both detoxifying and healing. Ozone is a highly active form of oxygen that supercharges the body’s own healing abilities. Normal oxygen molecules, O2, the kind we need to breathe, have two oxygen atoms. Ozone molecules, O3, have three oxygen atoms. That extra atom increases the amount of oxygen circulating in the body and is the source of its medical properties. Ozone has been shown to stimulate local stem cells and repair tissues, including cartilage. Ozone also increases antioxidant protection more than any just about any other therapy, including intravenous vitamin C.

Ozone is found naturally in the body. Our white blood cells make it as part of the immune response. Pure medical grade ozone, when it is used according to the established medical guidelines, has a safety record that is unparalleled. This therapy is useful for disinfecting the blood and treating chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis, herpes, macular degeneration, and autoimmune disorders. Some of our professional athlete patients use ozone weekly because it speeds recovery and improves their stamina during workouts. 

Ozone therapy is often administered intravenously. Ozone also can be applied in the treatment of external wounds to treat infection, or in an enclosed space “gas bath” for the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

Ultraviolet blood irradiation

Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) is a safe, proven medical procedure that kills bacteria and viruses, aids the immune system, and rejuvenates the blood. It employs the use of ultraviolet energy to increase oxygen in the blood, killing harmful microbes and toxins, and promotes healing by acting as a natural antibiotic.

For this procedure, the patient’s blood is withdrawn and run through a device designed to expose it to sanitizing ultraviolet rays, and is then returned to the patient’s vein.

UBI helps to battle infection by triggering a strong internal response without the use of external antibiotics which damage gut flora. UBI employs parts of the blood to develop a direct, self-generated response.

UBI can be used as a therapy in two forms: either as specific (for psoriasis or lymph cancer, for example) or as non-specific (chronic infections, auto-immune diseases, etc.) The number of sessions needed will vary. It depends on the individual’s health, the duration of person’s illness, and the severity of disease that needs to be treated.

UBI stimulates the immune system, and for professional athletes, this can make for significantly better recovery times after workouts.
