A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish your body but sometimes the body has trouble obtaining these nutrients through natural digestive functions. On average, only 40% of supplements taken orally are actually absorbed into your body. Conditions such as stress, a medical illness, or food intolerances can inhibit the absorption of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folicacid, glutathione, or biotin. In these cases, injecting those nutrients directly into the blood stream may be the best option to ensure that your body is getting what it needs.

What Can I Expect?
Your nutritional IV will be given right here in the office and the amount of time it takes will depend upon your infusion. Treatments times can vary from ten minutes up to four hours. Many patients choose to bring a book to read, work on their computer, or just take a relaxing nap. We even provide pillows and blankets to ensure your comfort.
How Many Do I Need?
The number of treatments recommended for you will be determined by your provider and based upon your individual needs. Patients are initially advised to receive anywhere from one to four treatments and then reevaluated to determine the necessity of additional treatments.
How Much Does It Cost?
Because we believe nutritional IV treatments are so beneficial, we have worked to provide them at the lowest price possible. Most IV treatments are $140 and optional add-ons are an additional $40. We offer a discount when purchasing a package of treatments. Please be aware that these treatments are not covered by insurance.
Intravenous Therapy Preparation
Plan ahead and schedule your appointment for a time when you will not be in a hurry. It is unsafe and less effective to administer treatments faster than recommended.
Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated before your appointment.
Eat a meal before your appointment and bring a snack if desired. Vitamin infusions on an empty stomach may cause nausea.
Don’t forget to bring a book or laptop. Just remember you might only have one free hand!
