Intravenous infusion of certain vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements can often be the missing treatment to many diseases.  Using vitamins and minerals in intravenous forms can side-step the negative side effects of high potent delivery of these substances.  For example: vitamin C can cause loose stools in people at doses of 5 g per day orally, but by taking vitamin C intravenously you can by-pass any gastro-intestinal side effect and take quantities up to 70 grams at a time.  Likewise certain therapies are best done intravenously and do not have the same therapeutic effect if provided orally. IV’s are administered in the relaxing atmosphere of our IV room with comfortable leather reclining chairs.
