Using IV Therapy for Nutrients
At Burns Integrative Wellness Center we use IV Therapy to help restore health. Some of the more common treatments we provide are:
Chelation Therapy – is detox. With this IV, we typically use glutathione and occasionally alpha-lipoic acid, both of which are super antioxidants. They will bind to heavy metals and other toxins to help flush them out of your body.
Meyers Cocktail – named after John Myers, a pioneer in intravenous nutrition. We offer this along with slight adjustments in nutrients as needed for each patient to optimize the healing from a session.
Nutrition – We can add lots of nutrients to an IV. Cancer care patients as well as others suffering from digestive issues, this is a great way to keep your body fueled up while recovering your health. Vitamins can be added to an IV as well. Combining Vitamins and Nutrients in a single IV session can help boost the immune system or treat a variety of medical conditions.
We Use Ingredients Like…
Glutathione – A super antioxidant that is used in every cell we have. It helps to reduce free radical damage, boost your immune system and decrease pain.
Vitamin C – This antioxidant speeds up healing time, boosts the immune system, and it helps the adrenal glands.
B Vitamins – They are good for converting your food into energy and the adrenal glands love them. They help to calm the mind and decrease menstrual side effects like cramping and mood swings.
