IV Therapy

IV therapy with vitamins and nutrients has been in use for many years. Today, IV therapy has proven to be effective in dealing with a multitude of conditions. If you’re healthy and want to slow down the effects of aging, increase your endurance and ability to recover from exercise, or want to boost your immune system, IV therapy can help. If you’re sick and would like some relief from your symptoms, IV therapy is also a great option depending on the condition or illness.

IV Nutritional Therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy uses a needle and container of fluids to deliver nutrients and vitamins directly into your vein. This allows the fluids to get into your bloodstream faster than taking them by mouth. A variety of vitamins and minerals can be given intravenously, and they all fall under IV therapy. It’s great for boosting the immune system and fixing nutritional deficiencies. We here at Functional Medicine Florida take a unique nutrition approach to help decide what IV therapy may be best for you.

IV Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy is a treatment for heavy metal poisoning: iron, mercury, arsenic, and lead. Some people give chelation “therapy” for other conditions such as cardiovascular disease, autism, and Alzheimer’s

How Does It Work?
Chelation therapy uses special drugs that bind to metals in your blood. You get the chelating medicine through an intravenous (IV) tube in your arm. It’s also available in pill form. Once the drug has attached to the metal, your body removes them both through your pee.

Metals that can be removed with chelation therapy include lead, mercury, and arsenic. Before you get this treatment, your doctor will do a blood test to make sure you have metal poisoning.
