IV Nutrient Infusion Therapy

Patient Testimonials

"I come for an infusion once or twice a month. There are many different formulas for each individual’s needs. I receive a vitamin C infusion with B12 and a glutathione drip. Within only a few hours after the treatment, I feel like a brand new, vibrant person. I have Primary Sjögren's Syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis along with some other maladies. The infusions have helped me maintain a normal, nearly pain-free lifestyle along with much improved blood analysis. I figure skate for a hobby & believe that my overall well-being, happiness & mobility is due to the infusions. The nurses at the Rothfeld Center walk you through the process & their kind personalities make it easy breezy!"

"My experience with Vit C IV has always been positive. The very first time I had an infusion, I felt like my lungs were cleared, almost like removing lint from the dryer, and I was able to breathe. Melissa is the best IV nurse, gentle and thorough, very knowledgeable and helpful. I love the friendly, professional staff at the Rothfeld Center. Every session that I have used the IVs has been beneficial to my health and has cleared out the issues I have had. Thank you all!"

"The IV room at the Rothfeld Center is wholly restorative. From the comfy recliners, to the light-filled space, to the incomparable care provided. Melissa is one of the most skilled IV nurses I’ve ever had, her professionalism and personality are tremendous asset to the practice. You’ll benefit from the treatments received there in every way!“

Why Use IV Nutrient Infusions?

Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. 

 

When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines, and many substances may either be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function.

 

By directly administering nutrients to the body, higher than normal blood levels can be achieved. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.

 

Scientific research has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition. A few of the conditions that may be helped using IV nutrition techniques include hypertension, COPD, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, hepatitis, the common cold, and even cancer.

 

All of the intravenous protocols used at the Rothfeld Center have been thoroughly researched and have been shown to be effective in the treatment of certain conditions.

 

By practicing this type of “evidence-based medicine” we can custom tailor our IV infusions to ensure maximal effectiveness combined with minimal side effects.

 

Infusion Menu

IV Hydration   $120

Sometimes when we get dehydrated, we need a little more than just water to replenish. When you are dehydrated from food poisoning or a stomach bug, have been sweating outside in the heat all day, or partied too hard last night, your body needs more than just fluids to bounce back. Re-hydrate with exactly what your body needs—fluids, vitamins, and electrolytes to get you back on your feet quickly.

 

Migraine Buster    $110

Relief from headaches and migraines is just an IV away. The Migraine Buster contains magnesium and B vitamins, with an extra bump of B6. There is strong evidence that magnesium deficiency is much more prevalent in migraine sufferers than in the general population, and one study actually found that regular intake of magnesium reduced the frequency of migraine attacks by 41.6 percent. We also know that magnesium supplementation can be a good preventive agent for migraines. The B6 is an important component, because it is necessary for the production of serotonin, which plays an important role in the restoration of the sleep-wake cycle (your circadian rhythm) as well as signaling in chronic pain conditions. It also has a relaxing effect. We recommend getting these consistently if you suffer from chronic migraines.

Immune booster    $120

There are many reasons you may want to boost your immune system. Do you work with children or infectious populations? Are you a frequent flyer? Battling a chronic illness? Are you always down for the count when cold and flu season rolls around? Awful virus keeping you out of commission for way too long? This IV contains essential antioxidants in a high dose of vitamin C, as well as a trace mineral mixture with immune boosting compounds like zinc and chromium.*

Add-ons such as "viral relief" available.* Ask your provider for details.

Viral relief: Adding B12 and Lysine is perfect for individuals with cold sores or herpes of any kind.   +$40

 

Muscle Recovery     $130

For marathoners, cross fitters, and casual exercisers alike, this IV will help replenish essential amino acids needed to build and repair muscles, such as carnitine and taurine. It also helps combat muscle pain, cramping and fatigue with magnesium, targeted botanicals, and vitamin C.

 

Zen     $120

When you need a little extra help to de-stress, or perhaps are lacking energy due to overworked adrenals, this IV is like a spa in drip form. Magnesium, vitamin C and Inositol are key components of this formula and will have your calm restored in no time.

Detox     $150

We come into contact with thousands of chemicals and toxins on a daily basis in the form of air pollution, agricultural run-off in our water supply, pesticides and additives in our foods, personal care products— you name it! The chemical burden is often excessive and our bodies need some help to process and eliminate all of it so it does not build up and wreak havoc. The main feature of this IV is glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant and an essential component of our detoxification pathways.
