As a local San Fernando Valley integrative functional medical center, we offer an inclusive wellness program that encompasses a number of therapies and treatment modalities, and we are completely committed to bringing our patients the best possible treatment for the root cause of their problems.
This comprehensive program follows a concierge medicine model, which allows us to provide you with as much of the doctors time as needed to get to the cause of your health problems and fine tune your treatment as necessary. It also allows us to give you preferential rates on your IV therapies and other treatment protocols that may be recommended.
We have seen over the years that IV therapy can be a powerful tool in conjunction with other therapies to help the body recover from many health issues. Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream, thus bypassing the digestive system. This can be a huge advantage as it brings vital nutrition directly to the organ systems of the body. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the liver, stomach, and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, reduced in potency, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function. With directly administering nutrients to the body, higher than normal blood levels of particular nutrients can be achieved, which may boost the immune system and supplement deficiencies. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.
In general, IV therapies can help the following conditions:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Neurological Disorders
- Multiple Sclerosis
There are many different types of Vitamin Infusions and they can be used to effectively treat many health problems. Some of these infusions include:
Vitamin C Infusions
Vitamin C is required for a healthy immune system and healthy metabolic functions. This infusion can improve conditions such as poor immunity, cancer, fatigue, hepatitis, chronic viruses, and mononucleosis. It would be difficult to digest high dosages of this vitamin; however, an infusion allows it to last longer and create a therapeutic effect.
Vitamin B IV Therapies
Infusing Vitamin B can help patients to increase immunity and energy, and it can improve PMS, migraines, muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, addictions, and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. The body stores B12 in order to prevent anemia, and having healthy stores of other B vitamins can prevent disease and reduce the severity of existing conditions.
This is an important nutrient made up of three amino acids that is responsible for detoxifying cells and working to produce lymphocytes, which fight infections and viruses. It must be present for normal immune function to occur, and it can help the body to strengthen itself against colds, flus, cancer, viruses, and other illnesses.
Immune Enhancement IV Therapy
Immune Enhancement Vitamin IV Therapy is a combination of high dose of vitamin C, B Complex Vitamins, Magnesium, Trace Minerals and Glutathione, which enhances the immune system. IV infusions allow us to bypass the digestive system and get vital nutrition to your organ systems right away. The results can be spectacular. Below are some conditions that historically respond very well to our Immune Enhancement IV Therapy:
- Respiratory infections including pneumonia
- Gastrointestinal infections
- Lyme disease
- Chronic illnesses of many kinds causing physical debility
- Preoperative support
