IV Nutrition Therapy Q & A

What is IV nutrition therapy?

An efficient way to get a surge of the essential vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals your body needs is with IV nutrition therapy. Because they enter directly into your bloodstream through an IV, you’re able to use the nutrients promptly.

IV nutrition therapy helps:

  • Hydrate your body
  • Elevate your energy levels
  • Decrease pain
  • Rev up your metabolism
  • Fortify your immune system

Many athletes use IV nutrition therapy to improve their performance in their chosen sport or to recover from muscle strain or overuse.

What conditions does IV nutrition therapy help?

IV nutrition therapy helps improve the symptoms of many conditions, such as:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Migraines
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Influenza
  • Common cold
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Eczema and psoriasis
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Respiratory infections
  • Cancer

Dr. George also uses IV nutrition therapy to help patients recover from illness, injury, and surgery.

How does IV nutrition therapy work?

You’ll relax in a chair in the clinic while Dr. George inserts a tiny needle in your arm. The IV fluids slowly enter your bloodstream while you read a book, check email, or text a friend. The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants don’t have to pass through your digestive system, so you’ll immediately notice an uptick in your energy level and overall sense of well-being.

What nutrients are available through an IV?

Dr. George customizes the nutrients that go into your IV to address your needs and goals. Commonly used nutrients include:

  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Selenium
  • L-Carnitine
  • Calcium
  • Alpha lipoic acid
  • Glutathione

Depending on your needs, Dr. George may choose to put some healing medications into the IV to complement your therapy.
