IV Nutritional Therapy
When a patient has poor digestion and absorption, or is suffering from a number of chronic and acute diseases, infusing vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream can be more effective than oral supplementation. Bypassing the gastrointestinal tract allows for a more potent treatment that can dramatically help the patient in their healing process.
The IV Therapy program at the Hirsch Center for Integrative Medicine is overseen by our physicians, registered nurse, and medical assistant. Individual treatments can run from half an hour to three hours, depending on the specific protocol being administered. A complete course of treatment usually consists of multiple IV sessions.
