What it Contains:
IV Therapy is the delivery of high doses of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids into the body directly via the vein, bypassing the digestive tract and ensuring optimal absorption and effect.
Is IV Therapy right for you?
Our digestive tract is often inflamed and leaky with minor holes (permeations called 'leaky gut') from eating the wrong foods, which leads to malabsorption, where we are not absorbing a high percentage of nutrients from the food we eat. One common cause of health symptoms is nutrient deficiency.
Besides not absorbing 100% of nutrients due to malabsorption, our food is depleted; it no longer contains the levels of vitamins and minerals it once did when our ancestors grew the family's supply of fruits and vegetables organically in their gardens. This is because the soil is depleted; crops are no longer rotated, commercial growers do not use compost, and fertilizers strip the soil of minerals. Produce is also picked well before it is ripe and shipped far away, therefore not fresh when it finally gets eaten. According to scientific studies, an apple in the 1950s is worth ten apples today regarding nutrients.
Our IV vitamin therapies are customized and patient-specific. Dr. Terrie will assess each patient and determine the IV vitamin formulation to best provide the most effective support.
What are the IV options?
There are two types of IVs, a drip which contains a higher amount of nutrients and takes 45-60 minutes or a push which includes a lower amount of specific nutrients and takes 10 minutes.
