IV THERAPY

We offer several highly effective IV treatment protocols:

NAD+ IV Therapy for Anti Aging and Physical Regeneration

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme essential for life. This amazing molecule is present in over 5000 physiological processes and found in every cell of the body.

 

NAD+ is being called the “Fountain of Youth” because it has many incredible medical benefits including physical regeneration.

 

Simply put, NAD+ enables the conversion of the food we eat and the air we breathe into energy.  It is essential for the efficient functioning of the mitochondria. Mitochondria are the “power plants” in the cells and are highly concentrated in the brain, eyes and heart tissues.

 

NAD+ is crucial to DNA repair and it helps maintain your telomere length, thereby slowing the aging process. NAD+ is important for immune cell signaling and helps your body defend against disease and inflammation. 

 

NAD+ promotes chromosome stability, which promotes longevity. NAD+ is a neurotransmitter and is essential for maintaining healthy functioning of the brain.

 

Because of NAD+ importance, the body is constantly working to replenish its own NAD+ levels. Chronic disease processes, aging, and trauma can greatly reduce the amount of NAD+ available in the body creating a shortage. When the body’s own supply decreases, systems in the body suffer.

 

Symptoms such as anxiety, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, PTSD, cognitive down regulation can occur. 

 

Administering pure, pharmaceutical grade NAD+ IVs can produce miraculous results. Restoring cell NAD+ levels has been shown to preserve youthful function and reverse some age-induced deterioration. Radical physical rejuvenation and the lessening or elimination of physical symptoms are common.

 

 

Ketamine IV Therapy for Drug Resistant Depression and Chronic Pain

There is hope for the treatment of depression and chronic pain. Ketamine has been designated a “breakthrough therapy” by the FDA. 

 

Ketamine’s results and benefits are staggering.  Among people with treatment-resistant depression, between 50 and 90% respond positively to Ketamine, says psychiatrist and researcher Carlos Zarate Jr., MD, Chief of the Experimental Therapeutics and Pathophysiology Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health.

 

Depression often accompanies long-term conditions such as chronic illness, but often goes undiagnosed and untreated. Eight percent of American adults have depression. People with major depression are 20 times more likely to attempt suicide. Talk therapy and antidepressant medications often help, but such treatments leave one in three people with depression searching for more solutions.

 

Ketamine is a dissociative drug, which means that it alters the senses. It induces a trance-like state while it reduces pain and promotes sleep. Patients who respond to Ketamine see results very quickly. In a review of 10 studies last year, Ketamine reduced suicidal thinking within a day. 

 

IV Nutrition for Maximum Health

 

IV nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function, or due to the nature of the nutrient (i.e glutathione is difficult to absorb through the digestive tract).  Others cannot be given in high doses orally, like magnesium and vitamin C, as they will cause diarrhea; in an IV much higher doses may be used without adverse effects.

 

Directly administering nutrients to the body gives us higher than normal blood levels than can be achieved by taking nutrients orally. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.  

 

Treatments last 1-2 hours during which you can relax in one of our comfortable chairs while reading, working or resting.

 

We use IV nutrition at Trillium for pain, fatigue, hypertension, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, common cold, flus, pneumonia and bronchitis, and to give nutrition to patients who aren't able to eat well or who don't absorb well.

 

Examples of some of the nutrients we give intravenously at Trillium include:

 

  • B12, B Complex, B5, B6, other B vitamins - for energy, detox, weight loss, nausea, immune 

  • Magnesium- for pain, immune and detox

  • Zinc and selenium- for immune, thyroid support

  • MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)- for pain (joint and muscle) 

  • Amino acids- for weight loss, people who can't consume enough protein, hormone issues 

  • Glutathione- super antioxidant for energy, immune support

  • Vitamin C- for detox, energy, immune support
