IV vitamin therapy is a much more efficient way of hydrating and replenishing lost nutrients compared to drinking a sports drink. IV hydration therapy bypasses the gastrointestinal tract allowing you to absorb more of the vitamins and fluid. Sometimes your liver and kidneys can siphon out some of the precious minerals and vitamins you need, due to your body not being able to absorb them naturally. With an IV, your body can absorb all it needs much quicker, making you feel better that much faster!
We see all types of patients. Some of our patients are feeling ill due to a stomach bug, virus, hang over, or altitude sickness. Some of our patients want to boost their immune systems to stay well. We also have performance and longevity therapies for those that want to stay on top of their game.
For a healthy person with no medical problems, we suggest every 2 weeks. This time frame for treatment would be medically appropriate. In some situations, there are reasons to get them more frequently.
For one IV therapy, not including NAD, it usually takes anywhere from 30-45 minutes.
We do not accept insurance, however, we can often accept payment in the form of HSA and FSA. We regularly accepts payment in the form of cash, debit/credit. PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, and Apple Pay.
We recommend drinking plenty of water and having a bite to eat before we begin. You should empty your bladder just before the procedure so you can sit back and relax during treatment.
Yes. Each time you book a service with us, you will be asked to fill out our quick intake form. This allows us to screen for any changes to your health to ensure safety. It is very important that you provide us with your full medical history, including allergies.
Major side effects are rare. However, there is a small risk of infection, bleeding, bruising, or slight pain at the injection site. We take full precautions to limit these side effects. More commonly, clients report cooling of their hand, arm or body. Some report a warm sensation as the nutrients enter the bloodstream. Almost all clients report more energy by the time the treatment is over.
The original Myers cocktail is a treatment by Dr. John Myers over 50 years ago. These days every company has its own version and many are not the same. In fact, most are not the same as the original therapy. Our Myers is built out to be the safest and best therapy for those wanting to feel good with a boost to their system.
MIC stands for the three ingredients it’s made up of: Methionine, Inositol, and Choline.
Methionine is an essential amino acid that acts as a lipotropic agent which: assists in the breakdown of fats within the liver; helps to lower cholesterol thereby preventing excess fat buildup in the liver and throughout your body’s circulatory system; is helpful in preventing and relieving fatigue; lowers triglycerides, and is useful in some cases of allergies by virtue of its ability to reduce histamine release.
Inositol is a lipotropic agent that helps your liver to remove fat from your body. It promotes the health of cell structures and nerve synapses; aids in the metabolism of fats; helps reduce blood cholesterol; and participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Choline is an essential nutrient that helps to support the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular, and hepatic systems. Choline prevents fat and cholesterol from accumulating on one part of your body and uniformly distributes this fat to various regions in the body where it can be metabolized to produce energy.
MIC is typically combined with other vitamins to synergistically enhance its fat burning abilities. These include Vitamin B12, B-complex, and L-carnitine.
Vitamin B12 is a key ingredient in so many of our bodies processes. B12 plays a significant role in the replication of DNA, the normal functioning of the nervous system, and the formation of blood cells. The vitamin B-12 injection has been shown to provide these key benefits: boosts energy and overall metabolic rate; assists in the burning of stored body fat; detoxifies the body; increases red blood cell production; maintains a healthy liver; helps regulate sleep, mood, appetite and energy; works synergistically with other nutrients to improve health; and slows aging.
"Skinny shots" are Lipo-B or Lipo C injections. They combine amino acids (MIC) with other vitamins that tell your body to burn fat for energy.
Lipo injections can be taken weekly and work best along with a proper diet and exercise.
Lipo B is MIC and B12 together.
Lipo C is MIC, L-Carnitine, Thiamine, and Dexpanthenol (without B12). You may chose to add B12.
Lipo C gives you all the benefits of Lipo B with the added benefits of preserving muscle during exercise, reducing muscle fatigue, and helping to convert carbohydrates into energy.
