IV Nutritional Therapy

Rejuvenate Your Body and Feel Better Again!

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a way to introduce nutrients and therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream.  It can be used to correct deficiencies, enhance immune function, increase energy and assist in maintaining health. IV nutrients are given in therapeutic pharmacological doses greater than the minimal requirements of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA), which are intended to avoid deficiency states.

Because natural nutrients are easy on the body and welcomed, IV administration has an exceedingly high safety profile. Giving IV nutritional therapies will put nutrients back into the body, and improve the ability of cells to detoxify, repair and regenerate.

If you are suffering from the following, then IV Vitamin Therapy may help to rejuvenate your body and help you to feel better again:

  • Chronic illnesses
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Sinusitis
  • Acute and Chronic Viral Infection
  • Undergoing chemotherapy or radiation
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Before and After Surgery
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • As a complement to Hormonal Therapy
  • A way to detox your body
  • If you are an athlete in need of faster recovery

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?
The first step in considering IV nutritional therapy is to schedule a Comprehensive Initial Assessment with DR. JC Nerette who will request specialized laboratories, a physical exam, and a detailed health history, in addition to specific health issues in order to outline the customized treatment plan that is most likely to help you improve your health.
What are the benefits of Intravenous Nutritional Therapy?
IV nutritional therapy can provide enormous health benefits depending on the condition(s) being treated, the specific protocol(s) used, the number of sessions, and the overall health of the patient being treated. In many aspects, IV nutritional therapy is a preventative aging measure since it improves the nutritional content inside of the cells. Some of the specific benefits that patients may experience include: (1) Increased energy, (2) An overall sense of well being, (3) Improved sports performance, (4) Improved healing and recovery from sports “wear and tear” or even surgical procedures, (5) Enhanced immune support, and (6) Stress relief. IV therapy is so powerful that many patients report many of these benefits within hours of receiving the treatment. Some conditions including chronic diseases like Fibromyalgia require periodic treatments in order to maintain the benefits.
What are the side effects?
The most common complications of IV nutritional therapy include pain, irritation, inflammation or bruising at the injection site but these are unlikely and tolerable. Systemic complications such as allergy to substances can occur but it is rare. In general, these therapies are very safe, well tolerated and pose minimal side effects.
What is IV Nutritional Therapy?
Intravenous nutritional therapy is a method of delivering vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients to the body directly to the blood stream. This will allow to absorb 100 % of the nutrients instead of 20% if taken by mouth. A small intravenous catheter is temporarily placed into the vein, and the nutrients can be administered slowly over a period of time that is dependent upon the nutrients that are used. For some people, barriers exist in the gastrointestinal tract that prevents adequate absorption. But with IV therapy, we can safely deliver large doses of nutrients safely into a vein that would otherwise not be tolerated if administered orally. IV nutritional therapy may be needed only a few times or needed periodically for an extended period of time.
Would I be a candidate if I have a good diet and exercise daily?
Yes, even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight the aging process. IV therapy boosts the antioxidant vitamins and mineral levels in your body much more effectively than oral supplements. You can choose from a variety of IV cocktails, each designed to help your body repair damage, prevent aging, and recover its youthful vigor. We all want to live healthier lives; a great part of improving one’s health has to do with optimizing nutrition. Nutrition optimization encompasses providing patients with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbal support to maximize their bodies healing potential during the recovery from daily stressors. We each require a number of essential nutrients to achieve optimum health. Nutritional optimization plan utilizes scientifically formulated blends of essential nutritional elements that are needed for optimal DNA and protein synthesis, cellular proliferation and mending, wound healing and immune function.
