Despite the amount of food we consume, most of us are deficient in many nutrients, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. This can lead to a variety of conditions and symptoms, including fatigue, lowered immune system, and other serious medical conditions. Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy is an effective way to deliver these vital elements directly into your bloodstream.
IV Nutrition Therapy
Frequently Asked Questions
Medical professionals have relied on IV therapy as a safe and respected method of delivering fluids, medications, and nutrients for more than 100 years.
IV nutrient therapy is comprised of a combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids that target your specific needs. Infusing the therapy directly into your bloodstream bypasses the gastrointestinal system, which is better for absorption and eliminates the possibility of stomach upset.
Medical Director Eugene Rajaratnam, MD, can customize the exact IV treatment that is right for you. Here are some of the concerns IV nutrition therapy can address:
- Skin, hair and nail conditions
- Immune system boost
- Tissue repair
- Recovery from illness, injury or surgery
Even if you have a feeling of general malaise or just don’t feel “quite yourself,” IV nutrient therapy can help you feel your best.
IV nutrient therapy is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Once you are settled into a comfortable chair at the California Wellness Institute, Dr. Rajaratnam will insert a very small IV needle into your vein. For the next 20-60 minutes, you can relax until the infusion is complete. During this time, you can read, nap, listen to music or browse your phone. You will likely experience immediate benefits from the infusion, including feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and energized.
Some patients require a series of IV nutrient therapy sessions to achieve optimal results. Dr. Rajaratnam will recommend the right treatment for you.
