At the Alpine Clinic we find that intravenous nutrients and medications are sometimes needed when the oral route is not appropriate or adequate. We utilize IV protocols for acute illnesses, including pneumonia, viral syndromes, mononucleosis and dehydration. We infuse nutrients like vitamin C, B vitamins and minerals to support healing. We also have protocols for chronic illness and are able to use very high-dose vitamin C infusions for severe infections as well as support in cancer patients.
Another way we use IV Therapies is for detoxification of heavy metals and to strengthen the blood vessels and improve their health, helping improve cardiovascular health in general. We also use IV glutathione, lipoic acid and other specialty protocols. These may be recommended by your provider for particular conditions and concerns.
