- IV Nutrient Therapy is when vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream (intravenously infused) through an IV drip. It is a safe, powerful and innovative therapy that supports the resolution of numerous health problems such as infections, fatigue, heart disease and even cancer. For healthy individuals, IV Therapy is great for boosting health and preventing illness.The MBS Wellness biomedical evaluation is part of the Amen Method four circles approach to mental and physical health.

Your gastrointestinal (GI) tract breaks down the food you eat (or the pills you swallow) and passes the nutrients along to the blood through the lining of the GI tract. If your digestion is weak or if your gut cannot process high concentrations of a nutrient, your gut can become upset or simply excrete the nutrient without sending it along to the blood, where it can reach the cells that need it. When nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the GI and are carried directly to the needy cells via the blood.
Intravenous treatments are exceptionally powerful because they circumvent issues with oral administration, including stomach upset, absorption issues and loss of potency. In addition, very large doses can be administered via IV without gastrointestinal side effects, which can limit dosing. A perfect example of this is vitamin C, which can only be taken in fairly small amounts orally before causing stomach upset. In contrast, very large doses of vitamin C, which can be very beneficial for the immune system, can be administered safely and without stomach side effects with an intravenous delivery route.
At MBS Wellness we offer several different types of intravenous therapies, depending on patient needs and conditions. These can range from immune system enhancement to detoxification and relaxation.
Also known as the Myers cocktail, the Calm IV is a well-known and highly effective IV formulation for anxiety and relaxation. Consisting of high doses of B vitamins and magnesium, along with other nutrients, the calm IV can result in immediate relaxation, lowering of blood pressure, and easing of anxiety.
The Antiox IV can consist of glutathione, apha lipoic acid (ALA), or both, depending on what is best for each patient. Glutathione is one of the body’s most effective antioxidant and detoxifying substances, especially for the brain and liver. Glutathione is a naturally occurring antioxidant and dramatically improves the detoxification and rebuilding process in the body. Alpha lipoic acid is another extremely useful and powerful antioxidant that has been shown in medical studies to reverse nerve damage, and is also useful for treating liver problems, including hepatitis. The combination of glutathione and alpha lipoic acid (infused separately) is an extremely powerful antioxidant and detoxification regimen.
For anyone suffering from immune disorders or anyone just needing an immune boost we offer our Immune IV. This IV consists of buffered vitamin C in very high doses. High-dose intravenous vitamin C is no longer antioxidant but in fact turns into a pro-oxidant against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.
The Boost IV is a high dose vitamin C and multivitamin/mineral combination that is great for those who are worn down by stress or illness, or those just seeking to stay healthy and energized. The Boost IV is great for cold and flu season and can be followed by the Antiox IV for even more antioxidant protection.
Cleanse I & II
The Cleanse I IV uses Calcium-EDTA to chelate toxic heavy metals from the body, including aluminum, cadmium, lead, and more. Clease II IV uses DMPS to chelate toxic metals and is particularly good at binding to mercury, a potent neurotoxin and endocrine disruptor. These two IV’s can also be used when checking for heavy metals in the body with a “provocation” test.
A high dose nutrient combination including amino acids, B vitamins, and Magnesium, the Detox IV is particularly helpful for those patients recovering from drug abuse, medications or heavy alcohol use. The heavy use of alcohol or drugs can deplete the body of vital nutrients and amino acids, leading to serious side effects and symptoms. With the Detox IV, a custom tailored formula for each patient is created to aid in the recovery process and reduce symptoms of withdrawal.
In addition to anti-aging benefits and support of overall wellness, IV Therapy can positively impact many health conditions, including (but not limited to):
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic pain & fibromyalgia
- Headaches (including migraines)
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Infections (viral and bacterial)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Smoking cessation
- Stroke rehabilitation
