IV Nutritional Therapy

IV nutritional therapy is perfect for individuals looking to improve their overall health, improve athletic performance, reduce the effects of aging, manage stress, and enhance physical appearance.

Specific treatment goals typically include any one or combination of the following:

Desire to maintain or improve their current state of good health
Desire to prevent or minimize effects of colds or the flu or other viral illness
Desire to either prepare for, or recover from, a surgical procedure
Desire to slow the effects of aging and the aging process
Desire to better manage stress and its effects on the body
Desire to enhance the appearance of hair, nails and skin

Intravenous (IV) vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can help boost immune function, increase energy levels, and help manage a variety of chronic health problems. IV nutrients are also powerful preventive and anti-aging therapies.

A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish your body.

There are instances though, when the body has trouble obtaining these nutrients through natural digestive functions. Conditions such as stress, heavy physical activity, illness, or food intolerances can inhibit the absorption or increase the depletion of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, and/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. This is the goal of IV nutritional therapy.

What to Expect with IV Nutritional Therapy

All IV therapy treatments begin with an individual consultation with our functional medicine physician, Dr. Cristyn Watkins. In this consultation, patients can discuss their concerns, goals and desires for IV nutritional therapy. Dr. Watkins will also review general health questions and determine the best course of treatment. All patients undergo a baseline blood test to ensure tolerance for all vitamins and minerals, as well as to establish a thorough understanding of physiologic needs.

Some patients may want further testing to include food tolerance screening and nutritional analysis. This screening can reveal potential toxin exposure and give a more comprehensive overview of a patient’s state of health. Treatment typically includes a weekly regimen to ensure that the body is getting adequate vitamins and minerals to support activity, wellness, and health.

At aNu Aesthetics and Optimal Wellness, we utilize a comfortable butterfly needle with a micro-catheter to administer the nutritional therapy. Some individuals report feeling a warmth and flushing sensation as the IV is given.

IV nutritional therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that is well tolerated by most people. It has a low risk of serious side effects, which may include discomfort at the injection site or a slight after-taste of supplements after the infusion. Urine may have a strong color or odor due to the supplements.

Intravenous Infusions at aNu Optimal Wellness consist mainly of Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Minerals and Hydration fluids.
