Overview

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a treatment that delivers a high dose of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream to address a number of health concerns including hormonal imbalances, a weakened immune system, fatigue, stress and anxiety, recurrent infections and more. IV therapy is safe, effective, and natural. It can benefit anyone, whether you’re feeling healthy overall but could use a additional boost in mood or energy, or you’re suffering from a more serious health concern.

How it Works

In an ideal world, we would all get sufficient nutrients through diet alone. Unfortunately, when we ingest food, or take supplements orally, there is a loss of nutrients due to the processes that occur in our digestive system and liver. With IV therapy, a higher concentrations of nutrients is delivered directly to the cells, resulting in 100% absorption. The gastrointestinal side effects that are common with oral supplementation can also be avoided because IV therapy bypasses the stomach and intestines.

The most common formula administered at W180MD is the Myers Cocktail, though we can make adjustments depending on specific health needs. The Myers Cocktail is a specific combination of nutrients including Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and a complex of B vitamins. The nutrients are blended with sterile water and administered over a period of 40 to 60 minutes as a vitamin drip.

Recovery & Results

Since each treatment is customized to meet specific health needs, the frequency of treatment will depend on the individual patient as well as the condition being treated. For less serious or temporary conditions, a single IV therapy session is often sufficient. With more serious conditions, we generally recommend weekly or bi-weekly treatments followed by monthly treatments for maintenance. Our team will closely monitor your progress and make recommendations and adjustments to your treatment plan as required. IV therapy treatments are generally comfortable and pain-free, and patients can resume normal activities immediately afterwards. You can expect to leave feeling energized, revitalized, and stress-free.
