IV Therapy

Intravenous (IV)  therapy is the delivery of vitamins, minerals, and any of a wide variety of other natural substances directly into the bloodstream to treat chronic pain, infections, fatigue, autoimmune disease and other conditions such as cancer.

The benefits of IV therapy are many:

  • IV therapy delivers a higher concentration of nutrients in the blood than could be achieved by taking the same substances orally or through intramuscular injection.
  • IV therapy causes fewer side effects than do many conventional drugs used to treat the same conditions.
  • Many vitamins and minerals taken orally are not well absorbed in the digestive tract. That is not an issue with IV therapy, which bypasses the digestive system to deliver vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream.

The Center for Integrative Medicine offers a variety of IV therapy treatments:

Bio-oxidative Therapy

Chelation for cardiovascular disease and heavy metal toxicity

Nutrient Replacement

Adjunctive Cancer Care
