Arginine – converts to nitric oxide, a potent vasodilator that improves blood flow and oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscles.

B-complex – a combination of water-soluble B vitamins, specifically B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6. All B vitamins assist the body in converting carbohydrates in food to glucose, which is used to produce energy. B complex vitamins are important building blocks of the body and help the body metabolize fat and protein and are essential for healthy skin and hair. B5, or dexpanthenol, is required for synthesis of melatonin, a hormone that plays a key role in sleep, which is vital for anti-aging.

Calcium – element that maintains structure and hardness of bone and teeth, and useful for muscle cramps. The body needs calcium for muscle function and movement, as well as to help release hormones and enzymes involved in virtually every process in the body

Glutathione – A vital antioxidant made of 3 amino acids (L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine) that combat oxygen free radicals and peroxide. Glutathione imbalance is present in various conditions, including neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as aging. Glutathione has been used to improve skin and increase lower levels of glutathione in the body due to aging and environmental stressors.

Magnesium – A vital element that is involved in >350 enzyme systems. It is required for metabolized vitamin D products to be maintained in circulation. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, as well as up keeping immunity and preserving a steady heart rhythm. It is one of the most common mineral deficiencies present.

Vitamin C- also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is necessary for collagen formation and tissue repair. Aside from promoting resistance to infection, it helps maintain blood vessel integrity, which allows the body to carry oxygen and nutrients to areas such as the skin. Recent data has shown vitamin C reducing the incidence of coronary artery disease in women, osteoporosis prevention, and reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in combination with Vitamin E. An exogenous source of Vitamin C is required for collagen formation and tissue repair.

Vitamin B12 – also known as cobalamin, vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in brain functioning and red blood cell health. It plays a vital role in metabolism in every cell of the body and accounts for energy production. It is useful in the treatment of neuropathic pain, as well as fatigue, depression, and insomnia.

Taurine – studies have shown taurine, an amino acid, may support better physical function and improve performance. It also has anti-oxidant properties that protect the body from damage due to oxygen free radicals.

Zinc – an element that plays a vital role in many cellular and immune functions.

You will meet with a board-certified physician, who will obtain a complete history, physical, and review your medical records.

Although IV infusion therapy may not a stand-alone therapy, it is a highly beneficial mechanism to support the body at a cellular level. Ongoing therapy may improve nutritional levels to a therapeutic range and restore health to patients who have suffered years with chronic disease.

Every patient is different, and while we cannot guarantee success, we use a scientifically based approach using our training and experience to customize a safe and reasonable treatment plan.

There are a number of factors to be taken into account for the improvement in health and wellness:

  • Pre-treatment baseline nutrient levels- patients with very low levels and multiple deficiencies typically respond well
  • Patient commitment (patients who successfully integrate the regimen consistently achieve desired outcomes more quickly and maintain a consistent level of health and well being. Commitment also refers to follow up visits with scheduled lab testing
  • Participating in diet plans and exercise as prescribed, as well as practicing sleep hygiene, stress management, and taking recommended supplements if applicable.
A board-certified physician will spend about 30 minutes in a collaborative setting, discussing your reason for visiting, symptoms, and taking a detailed medical history and a physical exam. Laboratory tests may be ordered to obtain baseline information on your overall health and nutritional health. At the end of your consultation, you and your physician will determine the preliminary course of treatment. A comprehensive treatment plan will be discussed with you based on your history.
