IV (intravenous) Therapy provides rapid delivery of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients directly to the cells of the body for immediate use. This can be critical for symptom management and in regaining health during acute infections, as well as allowing for more efficient treatment and results in chronic conditions.
There are many reasons that make IV therapy a superior choice for certain situations. Here are just a few:
At Wellspring, we think it’s beneficial that you briefly meet with a doctor to discuss your goals for or interest in IV therapy. The list of conditions that respond effectively to IV therapy is lengthy. Therefore, with a greater understanding of your state of health, current symptoms, and what your needs and goals are, we can provide customized prescriptions for better care. Additionally, our IVs are prepared according to best practice guidelines for IV therapy and administered by a trained physician or nurse. Call Wellspring Clinic for an IV Therapy consultation today!
Life doesn’t exist without oxygen! This medical breakthrough allows for better oxygen uptake and utilization. Major ozone is an IV that uses oxygen to enhance energy production in the mitochondria of your cells. Why is this important? Well, the root cause of disease and of aging itself is due to deficient energy production. Improving a patient’s oxidation is key to success in aging gracefully, full of energy with good health.
A powerful Antiviral intended to treat infectious conditions containing an appropriately buffered and diluted Hydrochloric acid, or HCI. It has been used for over 75 years in Western medicine, but its use declined (similarly to Ozone with UBI) with the introduction of antibiotics.
It is an infusion delivered directly to the bloodstream that acts as an immune stimulant, which ramps up white blood cells and red cell oxygenation, which helps your body fight off stubborn infections. It may also support adequate digestive function. Without HCL, undigested food may pass through the digestive system, which can be linked to several different chronic health conditions, including allergies, thyroid problems, skin issues, autoimmune disorders, and metabolic alkalosis.
Let’s face it, the soil our food is grown in these days is not as nutrient rich as it was 100 years ago. Even those of us who eat a wholesome diet with lots of vegetables and nutrient dense foods have been found to be deficient in certain nutrients. This IV begins with a well-rounded mix of nutrients as the base of your IV drip and then customized with add-ins determined to be best for you uniquely as discussed during your IV consult. We can also opt to test your nutrient levels to identify specific nutrient deficiencies to further your tailored treatment.
This IV has more concentrated amounts of B-vitamins, zinc, selenium and the added benefit of proline, taurine and Vitamin A. Proline is an amino acid that research has shown to assist in the repair of damaged skin and play a primary role in regenerating joint cartilage, as well as assist with forming collagen and connective tissue - which is an integral component of nearly all parts of the human body from muscles to teeth. Taurine is also an amino acid that has antioxidant effects and has been shown to be beneficial for wound healing. Vitamin A is given separately and is a necessary co-factor for collagen formation. It is a tissue antioxidant and helps to improve healing time and wound outcome.
Sometimes we encounter situations where the body has become weak from a loss of proper nutrition or is lacking certain nutrients from a lack of adequate intake. This IV is mostly used in chronic conditions, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and ADHD. It works well for this because it helps with the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. Neurotransmitters can become depleted by stress, both physical and emotional or a lack of proper, balanced nutrition. Benefits also can be achieved in those wanting to support athletic performance and accelerate recovery. It is a helpful tool in weight management and overall health and wellness. Patients undergoing chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer greatly benefit from this to support rebuilding strength and providing fundamental nutritional needs to support their wellbeing.
Put simply, NAD, is a coenzyme in the body that helps with the production of energy for the body, but NAD levels naturally decline with age. NAD impacts enzymes called sirtuins - known to be an important tool for living with longevity, less generalized inflammation and better DNA protection. Other benefits may include reducing fatigue and improving endurance, strengthening the immune system, and cardiovascular protection.
NAD is crucial for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and amino acids. NAD to the human body is like gasoline to a car; without it, the body would fail to work. Because it is so fundamental to cellular energy production, it has innumerable benefits and can be used in a wide variety of conditions. NAD is known to have very powerful positive benefits to brain health including: increased concentration and focus, improved mood and clarity, and improved memory. It has strong evidence in its ability to provide neuroprotective benefits against Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders. Because of its ability to help heal the brain on a cellular level, NAD is also a very promising natural treatment option for drug and alcohol detox.
Not all NAD is created equal; it is important to work with a doctor who has had proper training in NAD therapy and protocols.
Scientists have been studying the effects of mega-doses of Vitamin C for decades. High dose IV Vitamin C can be utilized for acute or chronic viral infections, as well as cancer. The method of action for either is the same, but this information below will reference the treatment of cancer.
Research associated with Vitamin C can be found regarding various cancers, including but not limited to breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer and gastric cancer. Hugh D. Riordan, M.D. is one of several pioneers in Vitamin C and cancer research, with 25 years of clinical experience in the administration of over 40,000 onsite high dose IVC treatments. Riordan and his colleagues conducted numerous case studies and discovered that various types of tumor cells were susceptible to destruction from high-dose Vitamin C, when the Vitamin C levels are able to reach 350 to 400 mg/dL in the blood plasma. At this particular dose, Vitamin C becomes a pro-oxidant that is able to selectively induce cellular death of cancer cells, without harm to healthy cells. High doses of Vitamin C optimize health in the sick mitochondria of cancer cells, which allows the cells to do their job at stimulating the immune system and killing cancer cells. This means that cancer cells are actually too sick and metabolically disabled to die, but when the high-energy mitochondrial burn is restored with Vitamin C, cancer cells are able to undergo a natural cell death. If you are faced with a diagnosis of cancer, treatment options may seem limited to chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery. However, high dose Vitamin C delivered intravenously can kill early stages of cancer cells and improve quality of life during radiation treatments and in later stages of cancer. Research is beginning to show that using Vitamin C at the same time of treatment with chemotherapy or radiation may improve the effectiveness of these treatments.
Many people don’t realize that hydrogen peroxide is a part of normal metabolism. When the body encounters an infection, it first turns to hydrogen peroxide. Your body makes hydrogen peroxide constantly and does so through a reaction involving peroxisomes found in white blood cells. It is the body’s way of engulfing bacteria using a singlet oxygen molecule from hydrogen peroxide (H202) to destroy a bacteria or virus naturally. The singlet oxygen is highly reactive with cell walls and proteins in the blood, which triggers the body’s own antioxidant system for immune system activation. Additionally, the singlet oxygen from H202 will also transform biological waste products or toxins into inert compounds through oxidation and increase metabolism in the mitochondria of the cells to make the toxins easier for the liver and kidneys to excrete. This is also how hydrogen peroxide has antimicrobial effects with viruses, bacteria and fungus. Hydrogen peroxide can be used to address the common cold, influenza, sinus infections, Epstein Barr and infections of fungal origin. It also has implications in lung conditions like emphysema and asthma. It may also offer pain relief from arthritis and disc disease.
Whether caused from underlying medical conditions or trauma, identifying the underlying cause of your anxiety is the first and most important step in addressing feelings of nervousness. Using nutrients to support biochemical pathways that are involved in neurotransmitter and brain function as well as gut function, can provide significant relief to patients with anxiety. Treatment frequency can be as needed acute symptoms, on a regular interval for support, or as part of a tailored regimen based on neurotransmitter testing.
Providing nutrients that address lung health and function is one additional tool to help with controlling asthma. IV therapy using nutrients such as B vitamins, magnesium and amino acids, and others can provide support to lung health and function. Treatment frequency can be as needed or on a regular interval for support. At Wellspring Clinic, there will also be additional recommendations during your IV consult to help control asthma symptoms on an individualized basis.
Known as the body’s master antioxidant, glutathione can have profound benefits to a wide array of health conditions from inflammation to mold toxicity, as well as offer immune function and detoxification support for prevention of illness. This is added on to an IV or provided solely as a push when needed based on the individual patient. Some benefits include:
You should love your liver. The liver plays a vital role in breaking down harmful toxins that you are exposed to on a daily basis from food, water and air, not to mention hobbies, like painting or woodworking, or work related hazards from office buildings such as chemical cleaning agents and pesticides for bug control. Without healthy liver detoxification abilities, you would be bombarded with toxins that would remain in your system wreaking havoc everywhere, particularly on the endocrine system which regulates hormones. Loving your liver means making daily choices to avoid toxins like makeups, perfumes/colognes, artificial foods, harsh chemical cleaners, pesticides, excess alcohol, etc. It also includes maintaining a healthy diet and feeding the cells of your body nutrients required to support the pathways of detoxification carried out by the liver. NAC is a star player in this formula, along with other liver supportive nutrients to enhance co-factors needed to support those very important cells of your liver. This IV also includes glutathione, the master antioxidant.
IV therapy is an effective tool in supporting the process of breaking addictions from alcohol and drugs, including opiates. Our formulations are based on knowledge of how substance addiction alters the neurochemistry of the brain. It is critical to support neurotransmitter balance while detoxing from addictions and replace important nutrients that are depleted from excessive alcohol or drug use. We will also tailor your treatment with a specific selection of IV vitamins in a bag of hydration based on whether you are having common symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. These treatments make the world of difference in resetting the brain by correcting nutrient deficiencies, thereby providing the building blocks for neurotransmitters. Thus making the path towards recovery a lot easier to attain.
Support fat burning activity to help drive a more efficient weight loss program. The wide spectrum of nutrients in this IV stimulate metabolism of fat and may provide more sustainable stamina. If you are short on time, we have a much more condensed version in a simple and quick intramuscular injection. We use this IV or IM in part with our very successful lifestyle program for a healthier body weight with more lean muscle mass and less fat.
This provides you with the highest dose of Vitamin C that can be given without the lab testing necessary for high dose Vitamin C treatments of 25 grams and higher. Along with the potent dose of Vitamin C, you will also be receiving a well rounded spectrum of nutrients that include B vitamins, zinc, selenium, magnesium and more to help support immune function, gastrointestinal health, nervous system function, as well as cover gaps in nutritional needs. Add on glutathione as a push to follow this IV for a great antioxidant rich formula, which will also recharge antioxidant pathways.
This IV cocktail is short and sweet to help give you everything that the Potent C contains, but in a slimmed down version for those with only 30-45 minutes to spare.
We formulated this IV in response to Covid when we felt that it was necessary to provide a wide spectrum of nutrients needed to enhance the immune system and enhance antiviral activity. You can expect the top tier of antioxidant rich Vitamin C, B Vitamins for energy to drive important pathways for antioxidant regeneration, and antiviral nutrients like Lysine and others for a strong antiviral punch.
Sometimes a simple bag of IV hydration is all a person needs to help get the fluids moving in the body. Increase circulation to move the bad stuff out and allow the lymphatics to work more effectively at draining and eliminating the toxins that are causing trouble. Of course, this is also excellent in the cases of fluid loss from GI illnesses causing dehydration from lack of fluid intake, diarrhea, and/or vomiting.
When needed we also have IVs or IM injections to remedy symptoms from acute toxicity due to “hangovers.” Contact us directly to learn more.
