IV Nutrition


Intravenous Nutrition Therapy in Chicago and Rockford, IL


Intravenous (IV) nutrition therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Unlike oral substances, IV nutrition allows vitamins to completely skip pass the digestive system, allowing results to be realized significantly quicker. As a quick way to improve a patient’s nutrition, IV nutrition ensures that a patient will benefit from a higher concentration of nutrients than those nutrients provided by other nutritious substances.

Many experts in the medical industry believe that IV nutrition therapy can assist in the recovery process from a variety of conditions, including: depression, migraines, sleep apnea, asthma, respiratory issues, cardiovascular disease, and even the common cold, among many others.

Still a relatively new concept, IV nutrition therapy is actively being researched by numerous experts in the field – some of which are researching IV nutrition therapy in part of their cancer prevention research.

Forms of IV Nutrition

There are a variety of forms of IV nutrition – all with their own unique benefits. Among these forms include magnesium and vitamin B infusions, vitamin C infusions, and the Myer’s cocktail.

Magnesium and vitamin B infusions are utilized to increase the body’s magnesium stores as a means to assist rebuilding a body’s strength. As such, this form of infusion is beneficial in reducing symptoms of fatigue and muscle aches while also restoring health through replenishing the body’s magnesium count and vitamin B.

Vitamin C infusions provides the body with the necessary ascorbate required to fight chronic viruses that are often fought in the everyday world such as mono, fatigue, and weakness.

Invented by John Myers, a physician from Baltimore, nearly 30-years ago, the Myer’s cocktail is a nutritious solution of vitamins and minerals that contains calcium, magnesium, B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B9, B12, and vitamin C. Given by an “IV push” that can be administered in five to 10 minutes rather than the typical “IV drip” that can take hours, this nutritious cocktail has been determined to be an effective combatant of asthma, muscle spasms, respiratory infections, sinusitis, and migraines.


Still a relatively new method, many experts believe that IV nutrition therapy can not only act as a powerful combatant to respiratory diseases, chronic asthma, migraines, and cardiovascular disease, among others – some believe that IV nutrient therapy can also enhance athletic performance, improve fatigue, assist in surgical recovery, reduce high blood pressure, decrease anxiety, and aid depression.
