IV Nutritional Therapy provides a way to deliver vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients to the body, directly through the bloodstream. By placing a small intravenous catheter into a vein, practitioners can slowly administer necessary nutrients to the body. This therapy is so powerful that many patients report benefits within hours of receiving treatment.
How Are You Feeling?
If you’re feeling stressed, fatigued, or dealing with other health issues such as lyme disease, asthma, chronic depression, anxiety, etc, IV therapy may be great for you!. IV therapy can provide enormous health benefits (increased energy, an enhanced immune system, and an overall sense of well-being). IV nutritional therapy is also useful in the detoxification process.
How Many Treatments?
IV nutritional therapy may only be needed a few times or periodically over an extended period of time. Specific protocols and their benefits are dependent upon the patient and the problem being addressed. Schedule a consultation: (843) 839-9996
The Myers‘ Cocktail is one of the more commonly known vitamin therapies and is sometimes referred to as the “Wellness” cocktail. It consists of Magnesium, Calcium, Selenium, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B Complex, and Vitamin C. If you are feeling run down, stressed out, or are suffering from fatigue, you can benefit tremendously from the Myers’ Cocktail.
High Dose Vitamin C
Vitamin C is required for the proper development and function of many parts and systems of the body. It also plays an important role in maintaining proper immune function.
Administering Vitamin C through IV therapy allows the body to absorb it quicker and at higher doses than taking it in the form of oral supplements. While oral vitamin C saturation results in diarrhea, IV vitamin C does not have that effect.
Vitamin C Common Uses
Vitamin C is most commonly used for preventing and treating colds but is used for many more conditions. Some other indications of Vitamin C are as follows but are not limited to:
- Immune Disorder
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Chronic Fatigue
Our cells are bathed in a watery fluid, made up of water, sodium and chloride. These molecules play a vital role in maintaining proper fluid balance and keeping our tissues hydrated. Our primary use for Saline IV therapy is in treating dehydration.
At 360 Health Care, we use a saline of 0.9% sodium chloride (a source of water and electrolytes). For more information or concerns you may have about saline IV, please inquire within our office.
Ozone and Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI)
Ozone is a naturally occuring gas in our atmosphere and is producible with medical-grade generators. It’s molecular instability makes it a reactive oxidant and potent medicine. In fact, our own antibodies produce small amounts of ozone to heal. The oxidative nature leads to antimicrobial effects, but also improves circulation, immune modulation, enhances antioxidant responses and in high doses, can have inhibitory effects that are useful for certain conditions.
UBI is the application of Ozone Therapy and adding a narrowband ultraviolet light source. This range of wavelength (311 to 312 nm) has proved to be the most beneficial wavelength of natural sunlight and can also be administered artificially through special UV lamps.
The combination is a powerful weapon when fighting against many chronic diseases by addressing the disease process at a cellular level.
This therapy that involves intravenous injections of ethylend diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA), a chelating agent used for removing heavy metals. Exposure to heavy metals such as, aluminum, arsenic, lead and mercury can cause toxicity that can lead to physical, muscular and neurological degenerative processes.
Poly MVA is exactly as the name suggests….. it is “poly” meaning many M- minerals, V-vitamins and A- amino acids and alpha lipoic acid. Combining ALA (alpha lipoic acid) with Palladium (an electrically charged particle and B1 (thiamine), a great foundation for the delivery of the other minerals, vitamins and aminos are achieved, providing a synergistic effect, or positive combination effect, that is superior to these substances taken alone.
- Helps the body to produce energy

- Assists in preventing cell damage
- Assists the body in removing heavy metals from the bloodstream
- Powerful antioxidant and detoxificant
- Prevents B-12 deficiency related mental disturbances in the elderly
- Supports nerve and neurotransmitter function
- Enhances white blood cell function

In the late 19th century, DMSO, or dimethyl sulfoxide, was discovered and found to be able to penetrate the skin’s full thickness. On the skin, it is used to reduce pain and inflammation and reduce scarring over time as well as transport other substances through the skin.
Intravenous DMSO has been used to help heal interstitial cystitis, reduce pain, treat arthritis and osteoarthritis, and more recently has been showing promise in helping Alzheimer’s Disease.
Consumed for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, curcumin, the active ingredient in the spice turmeric has been examined extensively with thousands of double blind studies proving its tremendous value in improving our health.
It has been found to decrease inflammation, help with arthritis and osteoarthritis, inhibit the transformation of cells from normal to becoming tumorous, help prevent angiogenesis (the formation of blood vessels to feed cancer cells), help inhibit the formation and growth of cancer cells, and it can help your body to destroy mutated cells that can circulate and spread disease. It also helps to lower blood sugar in people whose fasting blood sugars are rising, decrease depression, positively affect weight management and help with liver disease. These are only some of the examples for which this miraculous spice has been studied and found effective.
At the Natural Healing Center, we use oral supplementation as well as IV curcumin, that is, directly infusing the spice into the vein to bypass the digestive system and reap even greater benefit!
Just IMAGINE what it may do for you!
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
An Antioxidant Alpha lipoic acid, sometimes called lipoic acid, is an antioxidant produced in the body. It is found in every cell and helps turn glucose into energy. Antioxidants fight “free-radicals,” (harmful chemical reactions that damage cells in the body, making it harder for the body to fight off infections — also damages organs and tissues).
Fat and Water Soluble Antioxidants such as vitamin C are water soluble and vitamin E are fat soluble, but alpha-lipoic acid is both fat and water soluble. This means it can work throughout the body. Antioxidants are used up in the body as they attack free radicals, but evidence suggests that alpha-lipoic acid may help regenerate these antioxidants, making them active again.
Not To Be Confused Beware that Alpha-lipoic acid and alpha linolenic acid, (an omega-3 fatty acid that may help heart health) are not the same. There is confusion between the two because they both are sometimes abbreviated ALA.
What Can Alpha-Lipoic Acid Help
Several studies suggest that alpha-lipoic acid helps lower blood sugar levels. Its ability to kill free radicals may help people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy — who have pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in arms and legs due to nerve damage. Researchers believe Alpha-lipoic acid helps improve insulin sensitivity. Alpha-lipoic acid has been used for years to treat peripheral neuropathy in Germany. However, most of the studies that have found it helps have used intravenous (IV) alpha-lipoic acid. Taking alpha-lipoic acid may help another diabetes-related condition called autonomic neuropathy, which affects the nerves to internal organs. One study of 73 people with cardiac autonomic neuropathy, which affects the heart, found that subjects reported fewer signs of the condition when taking 800mg of alpha-lipoic acid orally compared to placebo.
At Natural Healing Center, we administer ALA via IV — for better absorption.
Brain Function Issues
Because Alpha-lipoic acid easily passes into the brain, it may help protect brain and nerve tissues. Researchers are investigating it as a treatment for stroke and other brain function issues, such as dementia.
Preliminary studies suggest alpha-lipoic acid may help treat glaucoma. But there is not enough evidence to say for sure whether it works. In one study on aging skin, a cream with 5% lipoic acid helped reduce fine lines from sun damage. Studies show ALA binds with toxic metals, such as mercury, arsenic, iron, and other metals that act as free radicals. Preliminary studies also suggest that ALA may play a role in managing other conditions including erectile dysfunction and cancer.
Precautions Side effects are generally rare and may include insomnia, fatigue, diarrhea, and skin rash. Due to these potential side effects and interactions with medications, you should take dietary supplements only under the supervision of a health care provider. Alpha-lipoic acid hasn’t been studied in pregnant or breast-feeding women, so researchers don’t know if it’s safe.
Alpha-lipoic acid can lower blood sugar levels, so people with diabetes or low blood sugar should take alpha-lipoic acid only under the supervision of their health care provider.
Animal studies suggest that people who don’t get enough thiamine (vitamin B1) should not take alpha-lipoic acid. B1 deficiency is associated with long-term alcohol abuse.
Possible Interactions If you are being treated with any of the following medications, you should not use alpha-lipoic acid without first talking to your health care provider:
Diabetes Medication – Apha-lipoic acid can combine with these drugs to lower blood sugar levels, raising the risk of hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. Consult with your health care provider before taking alpha-lipoic acid (he or she may need to adjust your medication doses), and watch your blood sugar levels closely.
Chemotherapy Medication – Alpha-lipoic acid may interfere with some chemotherapy medications. Always consult with your oncologist before taking any herb or supplement, including alpha-lipoic acid.
Thyroid medications, Levothyroxine – Alpha-lipoic acid may lower levels of thyroid hormone. Your health care provider should monitor blood hormone levels and thyroid function tests closely.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) — Alpha-lipoic acid can lower the level of vitamin B1 (Thiamine) in the body. This can be particularly dangerous in alcoholics where malnutrition is often already present.
