Integrative Family Wellness Center – IV Therapy
At IFWC, we treat the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of pain and disease and incorporate a holistic approach in promoting wellness, and inner and outer beauty. We look at what kind of person has a disease, rather than what kind of disease is in the person.
Our success stems from balancing western medicine and complementary therapies, recognizing the strength of western medicine through scientific studies and research, and that alternative treatments have stood the test of time for thousands of years.
Our Mission: At Integrative Family Wellness Center, we dedicate ourselves to providing the most effective treatments for our patients, utilizing the latest & best of western medicine and complementary therapies. We offer a wide variety of clinical services and therapies to help you achieve and maintain optimal physical and emotional health and wellness.
We offer a multi-disciplinary approach to treat common, serious, and chronic health conditions. With naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, and extensive training in modern medical care, we bridge the gap between alternative and conventional medicine. Our practitioners provide primary care including physical exams, traditional and non-traditional diagnostics, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, physical rehabilitation, massage therapy, nutrition therapy and counseling, weight management, detoxification, stress management, and treatment for general and chronic health problems.
Intravenous, or IV Therapy, nutrition of certain vitamins and minerals can often be the missing treatment to many illnesses. When someone struggles for a long period of time with a chronic and debilitating condition, or if someone is very toxic and weakened by environmental toxic exposure or nutritional depletion, they may need aggressive vitamin and mineral replacement.
“Our nutritional IV Therapy contains multivitamins, trace minerals, and nutrients in a concentrated solution which replenishes a deficient body and significantly improves energy and stamina. We use our nutritional IV’s to treat chronic fatigue, and other deficiency states. Its profound effects give it a place in the treatment of many medical conditions and the effects can be astonishing!”
IV Therapy nutrition involves administering nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This delivery system is exceptionally powerful because it circumvents the potential loss of potency due to possible breakdown in the GI tract and poor absorption of some orally administered nutrients. Even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight disease. IV nutrition boosts the antioxidant vitamin and mineral levels in your body much more effectively than oral supplements. This has been shown by the scientific literature to be effective in the treatment of certain conditions including providing an immediate therapeutic effect and health benefit.
IV Therapy nutrition is used to increase energy, repair enzyme systems and promote optimum nervous system function. IV Therapy nutrients include vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium, minerals as well as trace minerals, and glutathione.

IV Therapy for Immune Enhancement:
Your immune system is on constant guard to protect against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. This system keeps you free of not only serious infections but also cancer and autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid, in which the immune system attacks healthy cells. Unfortunately, the older we get, the harder we are hit by these immune-related conditions. As with all disease, a number of nutrients play well-defined roles in the immune response, and among them are antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. For patients suffering from immune disorders—or anyone who just needs an immune boost—we offer immune IV Therapy nutrition.
Our unique IV Therapy cocktail contains high doses of B-complex vitamins along with vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, selenium, and zinc, all of which are vital for a healthy immune system. High dose Vitamin C is used for fatigue, fibromyalgia, immune dysfunction and pre and post mercury amalgam removals. Intravenous vitamin C is especially effective in fighting viruses and cancer cells, while being completely safe for all normal cells. It is because of this characteristic that IV vitamin C is particularly useful in knocking out the viruses of the common cold, flu, and sore throat. Patients often start feeling better within hours of administration.
IV Therapy for Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia: The fatigue, pain, and depression from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia are real. At our clinic, we don’t just treat the symptoms of these disorders—we take a comprehensive approach that has the potential to reverse these conditions; alleviating pain, increasing energy, and boosting immunity. People suffering with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue are believed to have impaired cellular function—particularly in the way muscle cells handle calcium and phosphate. This, in turn, stimulates painful contractions and muscle spasms.
To address these problems, we prescribe a full regimen of therapies, including IV Therapy doses of B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin C, and other nutrients proven to boost energy, improve tissue repair, and relieve stress.
Glutathione IV Therapy: Glutathione is a powerful anti-oxidant found predominately in the brain and liver. When given intravenously it improves liver and brain function. It is often used for memory enhancement, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Neuropathy and Liver Disease. It has shown to be helpful in autism as well. Studies show that patients with neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, Macular Degeneration, Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease and Autism have low glutathione levels which leave certain areas of nerves more susceptible to free radical damage. IV glutathione helps to slow the process of nerve cell degeneration.
For many Parkinson’s patients, glutathione replenishment has proven to be an effective therapy for halting or even potentially reversing disability. In patients who respond to this therapy, the effects can be almost immediate and dramatic. Within an hour of treatment, patients often experience reduced rigidity, fewer tremors, and improved walking ability.
Myer’s Cocktail: Myer’s Cocktail is an IV Therapy vitamin and mineral therapy developed in the 1970’s by John Meyer, M.D., a physician at Johns Hopkins University. The “cocktail” is indicated for chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Depression, muscle spasm, Asthma, hives, Congestive Heart Failure, Angina (chest pain), infections, and Senile Dementia. This widely used treatment has been a cornerstone for IV Therapy nutrition, and has greatly improved conditions such as chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, migraines, and asthma.
