IV Treatments

Specialized Therapies To Bring Out Your Best

Intravenous (IV) treatments are therapies that deliver nutrients and other carefully selected substances directly into the blood stream. The IV route is the fastest way to deliver treatments, and it is also the most effective, since treatments don’t have to travel through the digestive system, where they could be diluted or broken down.

IV treatments can be used for a variety of conditions. An IV can make you feel better after a late night out. IVs can be utilized by athletes to complement other training strategies. Vitamins and antioxidants in IV treatments can support healthy aging or boost the immune system. IVs can help with weight loss, pain relief, or even to promote healing.

With our experienced medical staff, Body Symmetry MD offers a broad spectrum of IV therapies that can be used in conjunction with other treatments to help you look younger and feel better:

Athletic Performance & Recovery IV

The Anti-Aging Nutritional IV has a combination of antioxidants and supplements that support strong cognition and healthy aging. This IV should be used in a series of six to eight treatments to help support the repair mechanism in the body while strengthening brain function.

Anti-Aging IV

This intravenous therapy is a strong blend of vitamins and antioxidants that support strong cognition and healthy aging. This IV should be used in a in a series of 10 treatments to help support the repair mechanism in the body while strengthening brain function, bones, connective tissue and energy. Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal age change in the telomere. Telomeres are the little caps on the end of the chromosomes that carry our DNA. Many think of them as the tips of the shoelaces that keep everything from unraveling. Telomeres get shorter with age, and several other environmental and lifestyle influences can speed up telomere shortening, speeding up the aging process. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases.

Energy IV

Increases energy levels, stamina and supports optimal wellness.

Choose this IV if you are feeling fatigued and looking for a potent boost. Our instant Energy IV has all the great components of our Standard IV, with the additions of NADH, Ribose, Myoden (Adenosine), and DMG. These components take the already energy supportive IV and makes it a superior metabolic mix. This is a great selection if you have to put in extra hours on the job, suffer from energy loss, or just are looking for a metabolic boost. This IV can be used as a single use for a “pick me up”, or in a series of six to eight treatments to help boost metabolism for periods of athletic training, weight loss or any need for improved metabolic output. We add B-complex vitamins because of their need to produce energy from carbohydrates. More aggressive exercise may have higher requirements for some of the B vitamins, including vitamins B2, B6, and B5, athletic performance be affected if these needs are not met. With the B complex and the addition of the other highlighted ingredients makes this an excellent combination for maximal physical output.

Glutathione IV

Glutathione is the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant and is found in every cell in the body. Glutathione is a tripeptide (composed of three amino acids, Glutamic Acid, Cysteine, and Glycine) that bolsters the immune system and helps neutralize damaging free radicals. Antioxidants can even help your body repair free radical damage caused by such things as stress, radiation, infections, drugs, medications, malnutrition, and aging. Animal and laboratory studies have demonstrated that glutathione has the potential to fight almost any disease, particularly those associated with aging, since free radical damage is the cause of many of the diseases of old age.

Some of the best studies done on glutathione have been conducted in cancer treatments. One study involved women with ovarian cancer who were being treated with chemotherapy. Some of the women were also treated with intravenous glutathione. Those given the glutathione not only had fewer side effects from the chemotherapy but also had better overall survival rates. Our Glutathione stores decrease as we age and with exposure to drugs, environmental toxins, cigarette smoke, and poor diets. When a deficiency in Glutathione develops, oral supplements do not offer an answer because the absorption in the gut is extremely poor. Injection or Intravenous administration is really the gold standard to really maximize the antioxidant effects of Glutathione.

Hydration IV

This IV nourishes and hydrates depleted cells.

Ideal after the loss of excess fluids from intense exercise, a long day at the beach, or a stomach virus. A large dose of fluids, B vitamins, and electrolytes including potassium, sodium, and zinc are key to rehydrating.

Immune Booster IV

Boosts immune function to prevent and speed recovery from illness.

Ideal at the onset of a cold or flu and an essential IV when preparing for travel. Our Immune Booster IV uses the combination of our Complete™ Nutrient formula with the addition of Taurine, Dimethylglycine (DMG), Zinc and Lysine. With these additions, this is also a great choice for general nutritional supplementation and immune system optimization during the cold season. It has important B vitamins and lipotropics for a metabolic boost. Also, if you suffer from aphthous ulcers or cold sores, this will aid in the reduction of outbreaks. The B vitamin group helps support the immune system, while Thiamine (vitamin B1) and Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) have specifically been shown to play a role in wound healing.

Late Night/Hangover Relief IV

This IV formula helps prevent and cure pesky symptoms related to alcohol consumption. B vitamins help support methylation (detox) and MIC (Methionine, Inositol, Choline) supports the liver. Plus, fluid and electrolytes to rehydrate. This IV is salvation and protection for when you are prepping for or recovering from a party, event, or any time there is alcohol consumption involved.

Migraine Relief

Greater than twenty million Americans suffer from migraines, a vascular headache that can cause a disabling cascade of symptoms. Magnesium levels affect serotonin receptors, and also have an effect on nitric oxide synthesis and release, as well as on NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartic acid)receptors—all brain structures and chemicals suspected to be important in migraines do to their role on blood vessels. In the brain, fluctuating serotonin levels can send blood vessels into spasm and aggravating the symptoms of a migraine. There is scientific evidence that supports magnesium can aid in the prevention and treatment of migraine and cluster headaches. Magnesium is a safe alternative to try for those suffering from recurrent or disabling migraines or other types of headaches. Riboflavin is vitamin B2 and in super-high doses, it can help reduce the incidence of migraines by helping the brain cells utilize energy.

Researchers have found that some people who get migraines may not have enough energy stored in their brain cells. Riboflavin helps the enzymes in the body tap into the energy stored in those cells.

In a Belgian study of 49 people who frequently got migraines, researchers got good results with daily doses of 400 milligrams of riboflavin. At that dose, about half of the people in the study became migraine-free. Among the others, the intensity of pain was reduced by about 70 percent.

Myer’s Cocktail IV

The Myers’ Cocktail IV contains several vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are great for general nutritional supplementation. John Myer, MD was a well- known doctor from Boston who is one of the pioneers of Nutritional IV therapies. He researched outcomes using many of the ingredients in our standard IV. His research found medical benefits for so many different conditions that his work has continued well past his death in 1984. Most infusions use a variation of the original Myers’ IV in their clinics. This is a great choice for maintenance therapy.

Pain Relief IV

Chronic pain may originate with an initial trauma/injury or infection, or there may be an ongoing cause of pain. Some people suffer chronic pain in the absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage. With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. This can be both physically and emotionally taxing.

The most frequent sources of pain come from headaches, joint pain, injury, and backaches. Generalized muscle or nerve pain can also develop into a chronic condition. The emotional toll of chronic pain also can make pain worse. Anxiety, stress, depression, anger, and fatigue interact in complex ways with chronic pain and may decrease the body’s production of natural painkillers; moreover, such negative feelings may increase the level of substances that amplify sensations of pain, causing a vicious cycle of pain for the person. Even the body’s most basic defenses may be compromised: There is considerable evidence that unrelenting pain can suppress the immune system.

The Pain Relief IV helps to replace some of the key nutrients, such as B vitamins, magnesium, and glutathione that can help with pain perception, plus the addition of lidocaine for more immediate pain relief.

Quick Calm IV

The Calming IV is a great option for those trying to reduce acute cases of anxiety and/or depression as well stifle onset of age-related memory loss. This intravenous infusion has the powerful amino acids GABA, taurine, and theanine, vitamin B12 and the “relaxation” mineral, magnesium, to help with mental and physical relaxation.

Stress & Anxiety IV

The Stress and Anxiety IV is a great option for those trying to reduce acute cases of anxiety and/or depression as well stifle onset of age-related memory loss. This has the powerful amino acids GABA, taurine, and theanine, vitamin B12 and the “relaxation” mineral, magnesium, to help with mental and physical relaxation. This IV was designed to help you attain optimal neurotransmitter function. It provides important B vitamins, which play key roles in the formation and breakdown of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine as well as vitamin C, which helps produce norepinephrine.

Supercharged Meyer’s Cocktail IV

Our Super Charged Myers’ IV is based off the well-known original Myers’ Cocktail, but we have added much higher doses of nutrients. This IV contains several high dose vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants that are great for general nutritional supplementation, as well as an aide in the treatment of chronic illnesses. (John Myer, MD was a well- known doctor from Boston who is one of the pioneers of Nutritional IV therapies. He researched outcomes using many of the ingredients in our standard IV. His research found medical benefits for so many different conditions that his work has continued well past his death in 1984.) We also use our Supercharged IV in the treatment and support of depression, drug detox, inflammatory conditions, chronic syndromes, athletic training, and cardiovascular disease.

Vitamin C IV

This is a high concentration of Vitamin C that is designed to boost the immune system through its antioxidant function. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of Neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function. In addition, vitamin C is involved in the process of transporting fat into cellular organelles called mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.

Weight Loss IV

With the current obesity epidemic, we are excited for the weight loss IV series. This is not a magical IV drip that will burn away fat, but rather an adjuvant to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. The IV ingredients were selected for their role in the fat burning process (lipolysis), metabolism, and food cravings. This combination will help keep the energy up during the detox phase of our diet, while also aiding in weight reduction and appetite suppression throughout the remaining phases. We recommend our Weight Loss IV to any patient beginning a diet, maintaining weight goals, or those who are trying to lose weight but having trouble with a plateau.

Wellness IV

The Wellness IV is comparable to the well-known Myers’ Cocktail, and has multiple uses. This IV contains a balance of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are great for general nutritional supplementation for all. This is a great choice for maintenance therapy but has shown benefit for a multitude of ailments.
