Intravenous (IV) Therapy

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IV THERAPY

Intravenous (IV) Therapy is an infusion (given through a vein in your arm) of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids given to help treat multiple problems.

Vitamin C Injection
Examples of IV Therapy include Vitamin C, Glutathione, Myers’ cocktail and others. Our goal is to assist in promoting health and wellness, but additionally to assist in the healing process. So, whether we are trying to boost your immune system and keep you healthy or help jumpstart the healing process for an injury, IV Therapy is another method to promote healing.

IV administration allows for a higher concentration of nutrients compared to oral supplements, as it does not have to be digested. When supplements of any sort are taken orally, they have to be processed by the GI tract which will lower the effective concentration. Additionally, patients with chronic illnesses and other conditions that may cause problems with absorption can benefit greatly.

Intravenous (IV) Therapy treatments do not contain any drugs, steroids, narcotics or NSAIDs, are performed in the office and do not require surgery. Dr. Krasnick performs injections under ultrasound guidance, so he is highly accurate in injecting the treatment to the exact location needed. These treatments allow the body’s own natural healing powers to recover and restore to health.

If you are looking for a non-surgical, drug-free, natural, alternative pain treatment, then contact us at (734) 585-5653 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Krasnick.

COMMON IV INFUSIONS WE ADMINISTER

Formulated for nutrition, health and wellness

Glutathione IV

Learn More

What is it?

Glutathione is the most important and powerful antioxidant in our body. It is made from a combination of 3 simple amino acids: cysteine, glycine and glutamine, which cannot be supplemented orally. It protects cells from free radical damage and supports your immune system and mitochondrial function. Our bodies make Glutathione but levels decrease as we age.

What does it do?

  • Protects cells form free radical damage (molecules that damage cells and cause the harmful effects of aging)
  • Improves cellular function
  • Increases Glutathione levels as levels decrease with aging, chronic illness, and environmental stressors

How will it help me?

  • Scavenge free radicals and toxins
  • Enhance the immune system
  • Boost mitochondrial function
  • Maintain health and decrease the aging effect at the cellular level

How will I feel?

  • Improved sleep and mental clarity
  • Enhanced relaxation and emotional well-being
  • Improved strength

Myers’ Cocktail

Learn More

What is it?

A formula of intravenous vitamins, minerals and other nutrients developed by Dr John Myers. It is used to treat symptoms of chronic ailments such as Fibromylagia, chronic fatigue, migraines, muscle spasms and vitamin deficencies.

What’s in it?

  • Multiple B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12)
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium

How will it help me?

  • Vitamin C enhances immune function and antioxidant properties
  • B vitamins help boost energy by acting as cofactors for cellular function
  • Magnesium is a critical nutrient for DNA function and a myriad of biochemical reactions in the body supporting muscle and nerve function
  • Calcium supports skeletal structure and function and plays a vital role in muscle and nerve function

How will I feel?

  • Improved energy and decreased stress levels
  • Enhanced immune system
  • Reduced fatigue and pain

NAD+

Learn More

What is it?

NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a cofactor compound found in all living cells. NAD+ is involved in metabolism, neurologic and muscular function, cardiometabolic health, cellular repair and an important role in the aging process and maintaining longevity.

NAD+ production declines as we age. Optimizing our bodies levels with IV infusion of NAD+ helps to repair DNA, protect brain cells from damage and reduce inflammation.

How does it work?

NAD+ is necessary for our cells to create energy molecules known as ATP. NAD+ stimulates genes and proteins to protect and repair our DNA. Treatment with NAD+ reduces cell damage and inflammation and improves longevity.

  • Improves mitochondrial function (aka “energy powerhouses”)
  • Helps the liver breakdown fats that are essential to provide energy for the body
  • When given IV research has shown improvements in mental clarity, alertness, concentration and memory

What are the benefits?

  • Repairs and maintains brain/nerve tissue
  • Stimulation of Sirtuin genes which control pathways of aging
  • Can increase the efficiency of stem cells

What are the treatment options?

  • 2 hour infusion of 250mg helps increase metabolism, increase energy and improves mental clarity. Stimulation of Sirtuin provides anti-aging and longevity benefits. The goal is to stay healthier for longer and reduce the effects of aging
  • 4 hour infusion of 500mg aids in pain alleviation, reduced inflammation, cellular repair and ultimately a catalyst in brain health

Magnesium: Important nutrient especially for muscle and nerve function and helps repair DNA and RNA

Vitamin C: Essential for immune system function and is a powerful antioxidant

Calcium: Besides assisting with bone health, plays a role in circulation and muscle function

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine): Plays a central role in metabolism Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): Helps convert food into energy and is a powerful antioxidant

Vitamin B3 (Niacin): Important for metabolism and DNA repair

Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): Helps convert the protein, carbohydrates and fats you eat into energy

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine): Involved in amino acid metabolism, red blood cell production and creating neurotransmitters

Biotin: B vitamin important for the health of your hair, skin and nails

Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin): Vital for neurologic function and helps give an energy boost

Zinc: Essential for gene expression, immune function and wound healing

Glutamine: Most abundant free amino acid and energy source to improve gut immunity

Arginine: Amino acid that improves blood flow

Citrulline: Amino acid that works in conjunction with arginine and helps increase nitrous oxide bioavailability

Lysine: An essential amino acid important for growth and muscle turnover

Ornithine: Amino acid which helps remove excess nitrogen

Carnitine: Amino acid that plays a critical role in the production of energy

Manganese: Trace mineral critical for metabolism
