IV Therapy - Leawood, KS

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, a medical illness, or food intolerances can inhibit the absorption of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, 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.


Uses of IV Therapy

Here is just a short list of some of the numerous ways that IV therapy can improve your health:

Detoxification

IV therapy can introduce nutrients that help your body remove toxins like mercury which can harm almost any organ.

Eye Health

Free radicals that degenerate eye sight and contribute to conditions such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy can be reduced with an injection of antioxidants.

Heart Health

The proper blend of nutrients can strengthen your arteries, making it easier for the heart to circulate blood through your body.

Anti-Aging

A combination of ingredients can combat a number of symptoms associated with the aging process such as a loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, fatigue, and illness.

Immune and Cancer Support

IV therapy can support the immune system and patients with cancer, providing much needed nutrients, essential building blocks for protein and anti-oxidants. Patients with good nutritional status are far better able to tolerate traditional cancer therapies. The best fight against cancer starts with building your immune system and creating an environment that is inhospitable to the cancer cells.

Chronic Disease

Chronic illness causes many deleterious effects on the body from nutrient depletion, hormone imbalances, energy production problems, and immune and inflammatory problems. IV therapy can assist in regaining balance, providing building blocks, detoxify and decrease inflammation.

Fitness Enhancement

We all need to exercise. During exercise we create oxidation and IV therapy can help combat the inflammation that can be created during this process. Additionally, IV therapy supports the athlete with essential amino acids (building blocks for protein) and nutrients that can become depleted with exercise.

Acute Illness

When we are acutely ill (whether it be virus, bacteria or self-inflicted overindulgence) what is most essential for a quick recovery is hydration. The most efficient way to do this is by IV therapy. Additionally, both the severity and duration of an infection can be altered by IV nutrients from zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin D and many others. When we consume alcohol, amongst other things, we become depleted in many vitamins and mineral, most notably the B vitamins. Additionally, alcohol is an irritant to our intestinal tract and can impair absorption of these.


Types of IV Therapy

There are a number of IV therapies designed to either treat specific conditions or just promote overall wellness. Here are some of the most common:

Meyer's Cocktail

This particular blend was developed in the 1970's by doctor John Meyer at Johns Hopkins University. It has been used to treat a number of conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasm, asthma, hives, congestive heart failure, chest pain, infections, and senile dementia.

Glutathione Therapy

This substance improves liver and brain functions, leading to improved memory while helping to lower the risk of conditions such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, neuropathy, and liver disease. IV Therapy is the only way to get this most amazing anti-oxidant as it gets broken down when orally ingested.

Chelation Therapy

This treatment helps remove heavy metals from the blood stream like calcium, lead, and mercury to reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, senility, and certain types of cancer.

High Dose Vitamin C

Although this vitamin is commonly found in supplement form, an IV injection can provide a much higher dose than what can be obtained by taking it orally. Vitamin C is used to fight chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia as well as support patients with cancer and immune issues.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Helps those suffering from diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and lowering blood sugar levels.
