What is Nutrient Therapy?
The Benefit of IV Therapy
One of the main benefits of an intravenous treatment is that the nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream.
Intravenous treatments therefore are exceptionally powerful because they circumvent issues with oral administration, including stomach upset, absorption issues, and loss of potency. In addition, since the nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream and avoid the gastrointestinal system, very large doses can be administered without gastrointestinal side effects which can limit dosing. A perfect example of this is vitamin C, which can only be taken in fairly small amounts orally before causing stomach upset. In contrast, very large doses of vitamin C, which can be very beneficial for the immune system, benefit cancer treatments and every other biological metabolic system. It can also be administered safely and without stomach side effects with an intravenous delivery route.
When you receive an “IV” the nutrients enter your bloodstream directly and immediately. You get much higher concentrations of nutrients delivered directly to your body’s cells through intravenous delivery, thus allowing your body to better absorb and utilize these nutrients.

What Can I Expect?
At your first appointment, you will be fully evaluated by Dr. Childers. We will conduct a thorough history and physical exam (we may order blood tests). We will take a look at your total picture of health and assess whether or not IV Nutrient Therapy is right for you.
The length of your treatment depends on the nutrient mix that you are receiving and what concentration is being infused. The infusion is more comfortable than an ordinary blood draw. Your experience will differ depending on the treatment you are receiving: you may experience local warmth at the site of your infusion and either an increase in energy or a relaxation effect. An improved sense of calm and well-being goes along with many nutrient therapies.
