IV Therapies


IV therapy, a method of infusing vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chelating agents, and antioxidants directly into the vein, is a quick, efficient, safe, and powerful way of administering vital nutrients into the body.

IV therapy helps improve cellular homeostasis, a balance of the nutrients inside a given cells environment, delivering unparalleled potency and results. A drip chamber, which prevents air from entering the blood and controls flow rate, enables nutrients to bypass the digestive tract, where any compromised loss of absorption may possibly occur. Even though oral supplementation is an important factor in any healing regiment, there is no comparison to the effectiveness of an IV therapy session.

Real results come from an inside out approach! Come see and experience yourself. Email us at holisticwellness@apex-md.com or call us at (804)273-1066, and Schedule Consultation with us. For more information, please visit our Wellness Services blog.

Vitamin C
vitamin c

Vitamin C has antioxidant, antiviral, antihistamine and in high doses, pro-oxidant anti-cancer properties. I.V. Vitamin C is indicated for immune support, allergies, wound healing, viral conditions and in some cases acute bacterial infections. Vitamin C can also be given to cancer patients with approval from an oncologist.

One of the most widely used nutrients in IV therapy is vitamin C. This vitamin has been studied for its beneficial actions in cancer treatment for over 25 years. It has been shown that at high doses, vitamin C is preferentially cytotoxic (destructive) to tumor cells, yet spares healthy tissue. A recent 2013 article demonstrated the safety and efficacy of high-dose vitamin C therapy in patients with pancreatic cancer who were concurrently receiving chemotherapy medications. The IV therapy protocol group had a survival time that was double that of standard treatment alone!

Also, this therapy has been shown to improve quality of life for breast cancer patients and reduce inflammation markers, which is important for a better prognosis. The same trial showed that IV vitamin C decreased tumor markers in 77% of prostate cancer patients and 73% of breast cancer patients.

Recent scientific papers have also concluded that IV Vitamin C does not interfere with the effectiveness of chemotherapy and in fact can reduce the side effects for those receiving conventional medical therapies. A Vitamin C IV is also highly recommended immediately after the removal of amalgam dental fillings. Several research studies have indicated that vitamic C is able to bind the mercury present in amalgam fillings, and safely chelate (remove) it from the body.

The Myers’ Cocktail, commonly known as the “Wellness cocktail” combines magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. This combination of nutrients is versatile for immune boosting and adrenal support. Myers’ cocktails have been found effective against a variety of conditions including chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, asthma, seasonal allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, cardiovascular disease, adrenal fatigue, acute/chronic infections, chronic pain, migraines, Lyme disease and quick recovery for athletes. Nutrient depletion can be caused by poor diet, refined foods, alcohol, smoking, chronic illness and emotional & physical stress. Stress “eats up” nutrients, especially B vitamins and magnesium. Results can last from several days to months.

What It’s For:

  • Stress
  • Sadness or Depression
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Weak Immune System
  • Bad Allergies
  • Muscle Aches
  • Fatigue or soreness
  • Difficulty concentrating

What’s Inside

  • Magnesium Chloride
  • Calcium Gluconate
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B Complex
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin C
  • Trace Elements
  • Sterile water/Normal Saline

Vitamin C has antioxidant, antiviral, antihistamine and in high doses, pro-oxidant anti-cancer properties. I.V. Vitamin C is indicated for immune support, allergies, wound healing, viral conditions and in some cases acute bacterial infections. Vitamin C can also be given to cancer patients with approval from an oncologist.

Magnesium deficiency is common, which may result in muscle spasms and fatigue. Replenishing this mineral is especially useful to treat asthma (bronchial spasms), high blood pressure (spasm of blood vessels), menstrual cramps (spasm of the uterus), migraines (spasm of blood vessels), and adrenal fatigue.

Calcium helps with blood coagulation, nerve function, production of energy, the beating of the heart, proper immune function, and muscle contraction.

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which neutralizes free radicals, enhances the immune system, and improves liver detoxification. It also improves symptoms related to neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and nerve tissue damage from chemotherapy and diabetes. Glutathione is also highly effective to speed recovery from respiratory & sinus infections.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a key antioxidant possessing neuroprotective and anti-aging properties. ALA is both water and fat soluble, allowing it to eliminate free radicals throughout the body including the brain. ALA enhances the activity of vitamins C and E, Co-Q 10 and increases levels of glutathione in the cells. ALA is effective for conditions such as asthma, cataracts, metal poisoning, radiation exposure, heart and liver disease, diabetic neuropathy, autoimmune diseases, inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis.

MICRONUTRIENT TESTING : This unique test looks for vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies through a simple blood test. Having deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants or other essential micronutrients have been shown to suppress the immune system which can contribute to chronic disease processes. This testing measures the micronutrient levels within the white blood cells, specifically the lymphocytes. Since lymphocytes have about a 6-month lifespan, the nutrient levels accumulated in these cells represent a history of one’s nutrient status, rather than just a snapshot of recent nutrient intake.

This type of testing differs from the standard serum blood test in that the serum test primarily reflects current dietary intake. The micronutrient test tests for long-term intracellular requirements using the lymphocytes to determine any deficiencies.

Even if you are healthy you could still have a micronutrient deficiency. Since everyone is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be different than that for someone else. Some people may eat a balanced diet, but if your body does not absorb micronutrients properly, you can have deficiencies.

Health conditions such as autoimmune diseases, arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis, can be affected by micronutrient deficiencies. Other things that can impact micronutrients and cause deficiencies include excessive physical activity, medications, drugs, smoking and a sedentary lifestyle.

Knowing your bodies specific micronutrient deficiencies provides a powerful clinical assessment tool for you and your healthcare provider. With this information, specific deficiencies that could negatively influence your health may be corrected. At the Integrative Holistic Wellness Center we utilize Spectracell Laboratories state of the art micronutrient testing. This tests 33 different vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as provides an overall picture of immune system function. We help to correct any identified deficiencies through our full line of oral, intramuscular, and intravenous vitamin and nutrient therapies in consultation with your physician and our in house Pathology expert.

  • Is IV therapy safe?

    IV therapy is extremely safe. Before an individual receives any treatment whatsoever, vitals signs are tested, blood pressure is monitored, and health history is carefully evaluated. If the individual is sensitive, alternative nutrients can be administered, as well as at lower doses and ranges. Every IV therapy session is performed under strict medical supervision. After the treatment ends, patients can resume their activities and daily responsibilities immediately.

  • Who administers and supervises my IV therapy?

    One of our experienced nurses, along with physician expertise, will design, select and administer intravenous IV therapy.

  • How long does a single session last?

    Depending upon the condition, treatment, and protocol, sessions of IV therapy can be 30 minutes to a couple of hours. To make the situation more comfortable and relaxing, the Integrative Holistic Wellness Center features comfy lounge chairs, free wifi, and healthy, refreshing beverages

  • How often should I receive IV therapy?

    Each patient is unique, so treatment length greatly depends on the kind of customized protocol recommended and the response to the individual IV therapy. It’s not uncommon to have more than one treatment a week, but many of our patients report feeling more energy and a renewed sense of well-being after just one IV therapy!

  • Where does the IV therapy take place?

    The Integrative Holistic Wellness Center offers a comfortable, relaxed setting for all our patients receiving IV therapy. Patients are encouraged to recline, unwind, and feel at home. However, we know everyone has a busy, active schedule, which is why many of our patients continue reading, using mobile technology, operating laptops, and pursuing other work-related endeavors while receiving IV therapy.

  • If I’m healthy, can I still use IV therapy?

    Even if you are not ill, the Integrative Holistic wellness center practices prevention. Since most of us are or have been exposed to various toxins, IV therapy is an essential step in the cleansing, removal, breakdown, and digestion of harmful substances.

  • Does getting IV therapy hurt?

    Most patients, due to the fact that we only staff well-trained nurses who can easily find good veins, barely notice anything. At the most, you will feel a slight pinprick.

  • What is the difference between IV therapy and oral vitamins?

    Since oral vitamins must bypass the acidic nature of the stomach and high-dose vitamins may possibly cause irritation, IV therapy allows for increased absorption right from the start. The second your infusion begins, vitamins, minerals, and other powerful nutrients are instantly circulated through your bloodstream and absorbed by your cells that need it the most; there’s no waiting for the liver or stomach to play catch-up.

  • Are there any special guidelines I must follow after my IV therapy?

    During and after the sessions, we will recommend certain exercises, hydration tips, and encourage a low-carb, low-sugar approach to food with an emphasis on healthy saturated fats as needed.

  • Is IV therapy customizable?

    Absolutely. IV therapy nutrients can be mixed independently and offer wide-range, tailored treatment. Examples include high-dose vitamin C, glutathione, lipoic acid, minerals, amino acids, and detoxification agents.
