IV Infusion Therapies

IV infusion therapies offer vital support for healing complex chronic illness. For many, regular infusions are a critical component of recovery.

IV therapy delivers essential nutrients and other supportive substances directly to the bloodstream – bypassing the digestive system for maximum absorption. IV therapy can support cellular healing by delivering essential nutrition, improving detoxification, lowering systemic inflammation, boosting immunity, and more.

Dr. Grieder will help you choose from a variety of IV therapies to best support your healing process. Below is a description of some of the therapies available in his comfortable IV lounge. Other, specialized IVs are individually formulated for each patient.

IV Infusion Therapies

Nutrient IV infusions

People recovering from the multiple stressors of complex chronic illness are often nutrient depleted, and may have difficulty absorbing enough nutrition from food sources. Nutrient IV infusions include vitamins and minerals in a liquid solution, delivered straight to your bloodstream through a small tube inserted in a vein. The high quantities of vitamins and minerals delivered through nutrient IVs bypass the digestive system and are directly absorbed by the cells, where they support healing on multiple levels. Nutrient IVs can help to address nutritional deficiencies, improve immunity, assist with detoxification, lessen the effects of chronic stress, and more.

Recovering From Multiple Stressors

  • High dose IV vitamin C: Vitamin C can be delivered through IV infusions in much higher doses than can be absorbed orally. In high doses, vitamin C supports the immune system, helps to lower systemic inflammation, and more. IV vitamin C is available in several different quantities, and Dr. Grieder will help you select the appropriate dose.
  • EDTA chelation IV therapy: EDTA chelation uses a liquid solution of the synthetic amino acid EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid) to help detoxify toxic metals and chemicals that may have accumulated in the body, contributing to symptoms of chronic illness. EDTA binds to toxic substances, helping the body eliminate them safely and rapidly, and supporting cellular healing on multiple levels.
  • NAD IV therapy: NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a naturally occurring, specialized co-enzyme found in almost every cell in the human body. NAD IV infusions assist with cell repair and regeneration. They can boost energy, improve cognitive function, help lessen the effects of chronic stress and aging, and more.
  • PK Protocol IV therapy: The PK protocol involves IV infusions to support healing neurological damage caused by chronic illness, toxicity, or other factors. The infusions include phosphatidylcholine – a phospholipid that assists with the repair of cell membranes – and nutrients to support cellular detoxification. The PK protocol can help with an array of neurological symptoms, such as brain fog and fatigue.
