IV Therapy | Venice FL

The Restorative Medical Center in Venice, FL, offers a cutting-edge solution to support functional medicine goals – intravenous (IV) therapy. IV therapy is a powerful and efficient method of delivering essential vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. It’s a quick way to promote overall health and well-being. 

You can also use IV therapy to get over a cold, beat a hangover, or recover from an intense workout. 

Paired with our micronutrient lab test, which determines the specific vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other micronutrients you may be lacking, IV therapy packs a powerful punch. Once you’ve tried IV therapy, you’ll understand why it’s becoming one of the most popular health services in the country.

What is IV Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a medical procedure that involves delivering vital nutrients, fluids, and medications directly into the patient’s bloodstream through a needle and a tube. It bypasses the digestive system, which makes IV therapy hyper-efficient. IV therapy ensures a swift and complete uptake of essential elements, promoting immediate and efficient nourishment at the cellular level.

Cells need nutrients to function their best, and each micronutrient plays an indispensable role in promoting optimal cell function. When some cells do not function at their best, the foundation of our health is compromised, setting the stage for the development of disease. Identifying and correcting nutritional deficiencies is an important step in the long-term maintenance of optimal health. Let’s not forget proper hydration, either.

Diseases such as chronic fatigue, migraines and other chronic pain syndromes, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases are just a few of the diseases that respond well to IV therapy.

Our IV Therapy Services in Venice, FL

  • Myer’s Cocktail/ IMMUNE BOOST: The Myer’s Cocktail consists of magnesium, B vitamins, Calcium, and 10 grams of vitamin C, and has been found to be effective for a wide range of issues. People feel relief from acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders. 

    The Myer’s Cocktail can be very useful in situations where oral nutrients or other therapies are not working. When nutrients are given intravenously, your digestive system is bypassed and a much higher level of nutrition can be delivered directly to your cells via the bloodstream. The nutrients then kick-start those cells which are performing below par. The general effect of a Myers Cocktail intravenous therapy appears to be a marked improvement in the energy capacity and function of cells. If your cells can function at their best, it’s more likely you can recover from a serious health problem.

  • Glutathione IV-Therapy: Glutathione is a very simple molecule that is produced naturally in your body. It is a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids—cysteine, glycine, and glutamine.
    The secret of its power is the sulfur (SH) chemical groups it contains. This molecule acts like fly paper, and all the bad things in the body stick to it. Say goodbye to free radicals and toxins like mercury and other heavy metals. It is a major antioxidant as a free radical scavenger and an essential component of phase two liver detoxification. Over time, poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation all deplete your glutathione. 

    This is where IV therapy can help. We’ve seen this therapy produce excellent results across a variety of conditions, including serious chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, severe toxicity, liver disease, MS, central nervous system damage, kidney disease, and cardiovascular disease.

  • High-Dose Vitamin C: Intravenous high-dose Vitamin C has proven to effectively treat many conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. IV Vitamin C has a much greater effect on immune enhancement than conventional oral Vitamin C supplements. High levels of Vitamin C in the blood also cause the production of hydrogen peroxide, a known toxin to cancer cells.
    We offer 25 grams in our high dose. At high doses Vitamin C is oxidative. 

  • IV Iron: Do you suffer from anemia? This IV is given to those whose iron levels are low enough to cause a decline in daily energy and life. Low iron is dangerous due to a lack of oxygen being carried to vital cells in the brain, heart, and other organs. Our team looks for Ferritin levels to be 60-100, but those whose levels are below 25 may need Iron through an IV.

IV Therapy for Everyday Recovery

IV therapy is renowned for its ability to provide rapid relief from various conditions, such as colds, hangovers, or post-intense exercise fatigue. You don’t have to be treating a longstanding chronic illness to benefit from IV therapy. When faced with a cold or flu, the body’s nutrient demands increase as it fights off the infection. IV therapy replenishes depleted nutrients and boosts the immune system, enabling the body to recover faster. In cases of hangovers or intense exercise sessions, IV therapy helps to rehydrate the body quickly, alleviate headaches, and reduce muscle fatigue, leaving individuals feeling revitalized and re-energized.

IV Therapy vs. Drinking Water or Oral Supplements

Many people wonder why IV therapy is considered more effective than drinking water or taking oral vitamin supplements. While drinking water is essential for hydration, it can take time for the body to absorb and distribute the water and nutrients throughout the system. Additionally, oral vitamin supplements are subject to the limitations of the digestive process, which may result in reduced absorption and bioavailability.

IV therapy, on the other hand, ensures 100% absorption of the nutrients, as they are delivered directly into the bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system, allowing for immediate and complete utilization of the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids administered. The result is a more rapid and powerful impact on the body, making IV therapy a superior choice for those seeking quick relief or improved overall health.

Supporting Holistic Goals of Functional Medicine

At Restorative Medical Center, the focus on functional medicine revolves around optimizing the body’s functions, addressing the root cause of health issues, and promoting overall well-being. IV therapy plays a vital role in supporting these goals, enhancing specific areas integral to functional medicine:

  • Hormones: IV therapy can deliver essential nutrients required for hormone synthesis and balance. Adequate nutrient support can help regulate hormone levels, leading to improved energy, mood, and overall hormonal health.

  • Nutrition: IV therapy ensures the body receives crucial vitamins and minerals in their most bioavailable form, contributing to enhanced nutrient absorption and cellular nourishment.

  • Detoxification: The infusion of antioxidants and nutrients during IV therapy aids the body’s natural detoxification processes, neutralizing harmful free radicals and promoting cellular repair.

  • Mind: Proper nutrient support can have positive effects on mental clarity, focus, and cognitive function, fostering a healthy mind-body connection.

  • Body: IV therapy can help speed up recovery from physical exertion, supporting the body’s natural healing processes and reducing inflammation.
