Benefits of IV Nutrition in The Woodlands, TX
IV (Intravenous) Nutrition Therapy has been used in hospital settings for decades and was first developed and tested by Dr. John Myers at Johns Hopkins University in the 1970’s. Patients have reported significant improvements from IV Therapy for many conditions including fatigue, headaches, muscle spasms, PMS, seasonal allergies, sinusitis, asthma, anxiety, depression, stress, digestive disorders, nutrient deficiencies, toxicity, dehydration, hives, hyperthyroidism, infection, heart disease, and immune system support.
If you are wondering if IV Therapy is for you, here is a list of the benefits to consider:
- Quick delivery, quick utilization – IV Nutrition therapy delivers nutrients directly to the bloodstream where they can be utilized immediately. While you can’t expect IV Therapy to take the place of a good supplement regimen, it can be used in targeted ways to get quicker results than would be achieved taking nutrients orally.
- Therapeutic doses delivered to the cells – IV Nutrition therapy allows delivery of therapeutic (ie higher) levels to the blood stream in cases where it would be uncomfortable or digestively difficult to consume the same level orally. For example, when blood levels of Vitamin C are between 10-15 mg/dL, vitamin C can help to overcome a cold and fight a virus. This level can be achieved easily through IV therapy but would be very difficult, if not impossible, to reach through oral therapy. (read a book called Curing the Incurable by Dr Thomas Levy which is about all the benefits of high doses of vitamin C)
- Immune Boosting Support – IV Nutrition therapy makes it possible to quickly deliver B vitamins, glutathione, zinc, and vitamin C as added support to the challenged and busy immune system. It can function much like bringing in air support to the ground troops to make the difference and win the battle.
- Improved energy, resilience to stress– With IV Nutrition therapy you can begin to experience the favorable effects within hours. Depending on the therapy, examples include an increase in energy and stamina, the ability to think more clearly and a better mood. B Vitamins help to relieve anxiety and stress while glutathione, our master antioxidant, supports detoxification.
- Immediate rehydration – IV Nutrition therapy provides optimal hydration to support all vital organ functions. When done often, it can prove preventative and protective in avoiding kidney stones, constipation and damage to muscles. It can be a great choice for athletes to replenish vitamins and minerals lost through excessive sweating, while also improving recovery time and preventing muscle spasms and exhaustion.
- Fights effects of environmental toxins – Toxins in our everyday environment can take a toll on your health and appearance. IV Therapy can supply the antioxidants needed to fight off signs of premature aging and help the body flush out harmful toxins more effectively. Glutathione is especially valuable for this purpose.
- Preventative care – Therapeutic doses of vitamin C have been shown to be toxic to cancer cells and are effective at building immunity and improving resistance to chronic and upper respiratory infections.

About Active Ingredients: Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, more commonly referred to as NAD+, is found in every cell in the body and is essential to life. As a coenzyme to Vitamin B3, NAD+ participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule. It helps transfer the energy we get from food to the rest of our body and is a cornerstone to maintaining healthy internal organs and neurological systems.

- Mitigate effects of EMF exposures
- Combat chronic fatigue and sleep disturbances
- Help autoimmune and inflammatory diseases
- Has a role in gene expression that’s associated with age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other forms of dementia.
NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a natural coenzyme of vitamin B3 (niacin) that is present in every cell in your body. The compound fuels metabolic reactions and drives your cells to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids. NAD+ therapy optimizes your own cells’ NAD levels so they rev up and provide you with more immediate energy.

Mistletoe, or Viscum Album, is a plant that attaches itself to trees, such as apple, oak, maple, elm, pine, and birch. It is native to Europe and Western Asia, with medicinal uses dating back to ancient civilizations. The biologic extracts from this plant have broad applications in the field of oncology that have demonstrated consistent safety and effectiveness when used with the established treatment protocols.
Mistletoe Therapy can be used in malignant and non-malignant tumors, for stimulation of bone marrow activity, along with conventional treatments to offset the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation, such as nausea, vomiting, and lack of appetite. It can also be used to diminish tumor-related pain and to reduce the risk of tumor recurrence.
Did you know that the liquid extract of the Mistletoe plant has been used as an alternative method to treat cancer for close to a century?
Did you know that Mistletoe is one of the most widely studied and evidence-based, naturopathic medicines prescribed for cancer patients in Europe?
