FLU & ILLNESS RECOVERY
If you’ve ever had the flu, you probably remember laying still and thinking you’d do just about anything to feel better faster. We now have an IV drip that can get you back to living your life faster. Our illness recover IV is a fluid packed with nutrients including Vitamins B, C, and Magnesium and more. Those elements are essential in helping you feel better, faster. Since they are delivered directly to the bloodstream, the vitamins and minerals are absorbed faster and in higher concentration than they would when they are taken orally.
Our recovery IV will give you more energy, relax your muscles, give you a bounce of energy and help you recover for the almost dibiliatating fatigue that comes with the flu. The hydration blast is a necessity when your body is suffering symptoms caused by flu.
When it comes to the flu, IV therapy isn’t a cure, but it can knock days off your symptoms. The 30 minutes that you devote to having the IV could be the best thing you do for yourself after you get the flu. Many patients say they immediately feel a lift in their symptoms, energy level and clear mindedness – with greater relief over the following 24-36 hours. Patients also remark they feel more energized in returning to daily activities.
Doctors say the flu vaccine is still the best way to combat the virus, and it’s not too late in the season to get one.
Age optimization infusions are currently under IV Health research and will be available soon. Many of the Hydration drips that offer have shown to keep the skin hydrated, providing better tone and texture.

Ketamine is an old anesthetic drug which infused at extremely low doses, yields remarkable relief of major depression especially when traditional medications have failed. At IVHealth, we have designated physicians and anesthesia providers to infuse and monitor each patient during their Ketamine therapy. Typical infusions consist of 50-minute “bolus infusions” administered over 2-3 weeks followed by “booster” 50-minute infusions given once every few months depending on the patient symptoms. Your healthcare provider can refer you to our licensed mental health expert or your current mental health provider may refer you to our facility for treatment.

Why Choose IV infusion?
Interested in the science behind the treatments? The growing popularity of nutritional and Ketamine infusions has initiated a large amount of research.
Nutritional Infusions can be for:
Nutrition is the most important factor in a healthy pregnancy and ensures proper fetal growth and maturation. Many aspects of pregnancy can cause malabsorption of key nutrients. A very common scenario is vomiting during pregnancy, otherwise known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Hyperemesis occurs in roughly 2 percent of all pregnancies. Malabsorption and malnutrition are the main focus of nutrition deficient patients. However, the more common pregnancy related vomiting still has significant effects on maternal nutrition. While a mother may not be able to keep food and water down, IV nutrition bypasses the digestive system all together allowing key nutrients to both mother and baby. Therefore, malabsorption is overcome to keep mother and baby healthy.
Malnutrition is another concern in pregnancy as some mothers are unable to properly balance their diets to deliver the right nutrients to a growing baby. IV infusions can be designed to deliver all essential vitamins and minerals to ensure a healthy pregnancy despite patient lifestyle choices.
Hydration should also be a major concern during pregnancy. Dehydration is linked to preterm births and labor complications. Adequate hydration during the few weeks prior to delivery can increase amniotic fluid and thus increase the chance of fetal positioning that favors a vaginal delivery and lowers the risk of caesarian sections.
Pre and Post-Operative Surgery
It is already concluded that surgery has many effects on even normal digestive systems. Anesthesia and surgical manipulations are linked to long-lasting slowed motility and malabsorption of nutrients. Recovery from surgery is directly linked to nutrition as they play vital roles in wound healing. Wound healing is a complex set of events which can be slowed as clotting factors are directly related to cell nutrition deficiencies. Recent studies have shown that the use of parenteral nutrition or nutritional IV therapy has decreased hospital stays, infections, and improved wound healing. In an outpatient setting, parenteral nutrition is not administered and therefore nutritional IV infusions before and after surgery can speed recovery as well as limit post-operative complications. This is particularly important in surgeries involving the digestive system including bariatric surgery. IV nutrition is a fast way to return patients to optimization in order to handle the stress of surgery and to quickly restore health to a recovering patient after surgery. There is a recent study that suggests that preoperative nutritional infusions can even decrease the chance of post-operative nausea and vomiting.
Roughly 15 percent of population suffers from some sort of irritable bowel syndrome. IV nutritional therapy especially glutathione has shown to correct the malabsorption issues and can reduce the stress during IBS episodes. Lactose intolerance is another example of a restricted diet in a particular patient. Routine IV therapy can restore these nutrient deficient patients to a healthy lifestyle. Celiac disease is a prime example of malabsorption that can result in stunted growth and delayed puberty in growing children. Crohn’s disease can cause damage to any section of the digestive tract, thus essential nutrition is vital. At IVHealth, the digestive tract is bypassed allowing these patients to overcome the secondary effects of these chronic illnesses.
Fatigue and advanced age can be linked to both malabsorption and malnutrition. It is often noted as weight loss in elderly or severe fatigue in the young. IV nutrition restores energy to cells directly, thus revitalizing the cell and boosting Krebs cycle function. Patients who are fatigued often find IV therapy as a surprising energy boost with long lasting effects. Elderly patients can have routine nutritional infusions to improve quality of life.
Since cellular nutrition is vital for tissue repair, it is only natural that IV nutrition can improve athletic performance and recovery. Whether you are in training or recovering from an injury, IV nutrition improves cell function via mitochondria supplementation which ultimately results in the production of ATP. The antioxidants in our nutrition therapies have tremendous benefits for the recovering athlete.
Ketamine Infusions for Depression
Ketamine is a new off label alternative to the current traditional methods of treating depression. As opposed to the typical medications that affect serotonin levels, Ketamine effects the glutamate neurotransmitter. This is why it is well tolerated in severely depressed patients who are taking 2 or more depression medications.
Treatment resistant depression is the keystone for Ketamine therapy and dozens of research articles show impressive results. Many randomized control trials using a placebo group showed that within 40 minutes, depression symptoms improved drastically in the Ketamine group and remained significant for three days. Using the Beck’s depression inventory scale, another study showed an average drop of beck score as high as 80 percent. We have current patients who come to our center with Beck scores as high as 44 and finish the final session with a score of 0-10. After our specially designed infusion regime, patients can enjoy these low depression scores for 1-6 months and indefinitely if they choose to receive the boost infusions every 1-3 months.
