IV therapy is one of the most effective ways to get nutrients into the body. It is one of many ways to help you achieve your health care goals. We offer IVs to help with hydration, immune boosting, recovery, and detoxification. Many of our IVs can be customized. ALL of the IVs we offer are mixed fresh shortly after the patient arrives in office. By exposing your body to essential vitamins and nutrients like glutathione or vitamin B complex you can slow down age-related changes in your body, reduce inflammation, and boost immunity.
During IV therapy, your provider connects an IV drip bag to your vein via a long tube and non latex catheter. The nutrients from the bag enter your bloodstream directly, which is more effective and efficient than taking nutrient supplements by mouth. In fact IVs are the most effect way to deliver and absorb medicines and nutrients to the body. At Preventive Medicine Anti-Aging and Chelation Therapy you have the opportunity to review various IV treatment options that are best suited for your optimal health care goals at the time of your visit. You can get IV therapy regularly to experience the ongoing benefits.
