IV Nutrient Therapy is the infusion of liquid substances directly into a vein. The word ‘intravenous’ simply means “within vein.” Through IV Nutrient Therapy we have the ability to deliver vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract. IV Nutrient Therapy guarantees that the nutrients get into the body in large enough doses to be therapeutic. Many people can benefit from this form of therapy whether they are healthy and just looking for a ‘boost’ or need it for a specific medical treatment.
If you eat a lot of processed foods, fast food, take out, factory produced meats and non-organic fruits and vegetables…it is likely you are not getting the amount of nutrients your body needs from your food. Supplements, often sold in drug stores, may not contain the actual nutrient levels that are claimed on the labels. In addition oral supplements that did not dissolve in the stomach, pass through without being absorbed at all, leaving your body void of these essential nutrients. IV Nutrient Therapy is a great way to regain the nutrient balance your body needs while promoting health and replenishing energy.
Do you run marathons? Are you a triathlete? Just trying to stay in good physical condition? Enhancing athletic performance is important to many of our patients. Competitive athletes regularly push their bodies to the limit, consuming large amounts of nutrients as a normal part of metabolism. IV Nutrient Therapy helps athletes in their quest to replace these lost nutrients. The results show, not only a boost in performance and increased strength, but athletes also reported reduced fatigue and shortened recovery times.
There are many proven benefits to IV Nutrient Therapy depending on your own personal needs, medical conditions and current health status. Some of the benefits you may experience are increased energy, a strong immune system, fewer illnesses and/or faster recovery from illness (both viral and bacterial).
Additional benefits can include faster recovery time after strenuous workouts or sports competitions, greater endurance and improved athletic performance, improved mental function and enhanced mood.
Clearly upon hearing the word “cocktail” you might think of an alcoholic beverage, but a Myers’ Cocktail is actually the name of a type of IV Nutrient Therapy that was developed in the 1950’s by John Myers, MD. It’s inclusion of a comprehensive balanced set of vitamin and minerals can be helpful for a wide range of health conditions from fatigue and depression to asthma, migraines and fibromyalgia. Oftentimes it is given to build the body and boost your immune system to handle stressful life events.

Generally a 30 minute visit is all it requires, so a busy schedule is no excuse for denying yourself of this nutrient rich “cocktail”. If you have any questions or would like to try a cocktail…call Amara today. Our medical team is happy to assist you on your journey to improved nutrient balance and the benefits that come with it.
IV Glutathione is fast becoming an important part of the IV Nutrient Therapy toolkit. The scientific basis is well established and clinical studies have demonstrated excellent results across a variety of conditions, including serious chronic diseases. Glutathione is a protein called a tripeptide-a molecule composed of three amino acids. It is a potent antioxidant and quenches dangerous free radicals. It also binds to dangerous toxins through a process called “conjugation” so they can be safely eliminated.
Gay Sleight, PA-C, along with many other experts that share her passion and education in this field, is excited to offer this IV Nutrient Therapy to her patients for multiple reasons. She absolutely believes in the phenomenal benefits and is inspired by the clinical findings especially in relation to chronic conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer’s. These improvements along with the results she has seen through the eyes (and bodies) of her own patients are amazing .
