At Holistica Integrative Care, we are advocates of healthy eating, high quality nutrient supplementation, and optimal digestive function, and our work concentrates intensely on these areas. However, despite adherence to a healthy diet and lifestyle, sometimes patients cannot reach an optimum nutrient level in their bodies to stay well and ward off pathogens, toxicities, and other disease causing agents.

For many patients, IV nutrient therapy is the most direct way to re-establish a higher nutrient status. By giving vitamins, minerals, and/or amino acids intravenously, we can by-pass the gastrointestinal system and digestive issues in order to get nutrients directly into the cell for maximal absorption and effectiveness. Additionally, we can often get greater amounts of the nutrient into the cell than if we took the nutrient orally.  Take a moment to check out our various IV nutrient therapy offerings, and ask your doctor which one is best for your condition.

NOTE: If you are not an established patient in our office, you must schedule an initial consultation/evaluation, and fill out a consent form in order to have IV nutrient therapy that same day.

Vitamin C IV

Also known as the Meyer’s Cocktail, this is our most popular IV nutrient therapy, as it replenishes nutrients that support immune function and increases energy.  This IV can provide relief for patients who suffer from fatigue, Fibromyalgia, immune dysfunction, viral infections, hives, rashes, eczema and more.  It is also perfect for athletes as a pre-competition boost and post-competition recovery plan.

Recommendation: two infusions per week for more acute issues until resolved; one per week for more chronic conditions; and as needed to maintain a strong immune system.

Energizing IV

Are your adrenals completely zapped? Are you tired all the time and can’t seem to drag yourself out of bed or stay awake after lunch? Sometimes your body’s inability to absorb nutrients will impair your ability to gain full benefits from oral supplementation. A series of Energizing IV’s will boost your adrenal glands and help you regain some vitality in your everyday life!

Recommendation: series of 1-2 infusions for 4-6 weeks.

Immune Support IV

This preparation has multiple nutrients, including high dose vitamin C, minerals, amino acids and B vitamins. You can choose either an IV “Push” when you feel the first signs of a virus or infection coming on (takes approximately 20-30 minutes), or a full IV (takes approximately 1-1.5 hours) when you are already sick and need to stop the course of the illness.

Recommendation: Ideally, you should call the day you feel symptoms for the best outcome. We will do our best to get you in that same day or the next day.

Tissue and Wound Healing IV

This infusion is ideal for patients pre-surgery, with an injury, or with any kind of wound (e.g. post-plastic surgery, ‘road rash’, radiation burns, leaky gut syndrome, etc.).

Recommendation: Depending on the nature and extent of the injury or the type of surgery, you should consider a series of infusions.

Multi-vitamin and Mineral IV

This revitalizing IV helps those suffering from issues related to malabsorption or malnutrition (e.g. leaky gut syndrome and other digestive disorders). It is our number one choice for anyone undergoing chemotherapy or who has decreased nutrient status due to gluten sensitivity and the resulting nutrient deficiencies.

Recommendation: based on individual circumstances

Arrhythmia IV

This IV is formulated to contain heart-specific nutrients in therapeutic doses to stabilize abnormal heart rhythms.

Asthma IV

This infusion can help address acute and chronic asthma and provide relief from wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing. This IV needs to be accompanied by a treatment plan that supports lung health, which your doctor will create with you to support your specific needs.

Recommendation: based on individual circumstances

Anti-Anxiety IV

This blend of amino acids and nutrients will help support neurotransmitters that affect anxiety. Used in conjunction with a dietary and neutraceutical plan, this formulation can be a wonderful adjunct support for anyone struggling with an imbalance of neurotransmitters. This IV can also support withdrawal for benzodiazopenes.

Recommendation: based on individual circumstances
