WHAT IS IV THERAPY?
In the mid-20th century, Dr. John Myers began to suspect that many of the chronic conditions that plagued his patients were caused by a combination of dehydration and lack of complete nourishment. Born was the infamous Myer’s Cocktail, composed of vitamins, minerals, and fluids that he administered intravenously so that the benefits went directly into damaged, depleted, tissues, rather than being absorbed by the digestive system and excreted. At Knox Wellness, Dr. Chris Siano and the professional wellness team deliver IV infusion therapy to resolve infections and conditions that haven’t responded to other treatments.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES IV THERAPY TREAT?
An IV treatment replenishes your cells with water and nutrients. Conditions that improve with IV therapy include:
- Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
- Immune deficiency
- Asthma and respiratory infections
- Depression and anxiety
- Parkinson’s disease
- Chronic hives and allergies
- Migraines and headaches
- Mold Toxicity
- Lyme disease
IV therapy may help you battle acute or chronic viral infections. Your team may recommend an IV treatment when you have regenerative medicine treatments because it augments regenerative medicine by supplying your body with extra nutrients.
WHAT IS IN IV THERAPY?
Your wellness professional chooses the exact composition of your IV infusion based on your symptoms and complaints. Our IV infusions vary and may include the following:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B complex
- Vitamin B12
- Phosphatidylcholine (PTC)
- Stem Cells
HDIVC, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) has been recognized as one of the best antioxidants and nutrients available to combat numerous health problems. Through IV infusion, levels can be administered 100x higher than through oral administration. At higher levels, vitamin C acts as a pro-oxidant.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I GET IV THERAPY?
An IV therapy session is relaxing. While you rest comfortably in a treatment chair, your medical professional inserts an IV into one arm. The nutrient-infused fluid flows into your bloodstream, and the entire session takes about 25-30 minutes.
