IV Therapy is one of the most popular treatments for our patients. Helping anything from hangovers to back pain. IV Therapy is one of our favorite treatments because it does not discriminate.

We offer intravenous treatments. These are used to support nutritional status, immune function and for many other reasons. Oral intake of vitamins or food delivers only about 10-25% of the available nutrients to the cells, while IV therapy delivers 100% of the infused therapies nutrients directly to these cells. It is particularly important for people suffering from chronic illness and/or a compromised gastrointestinal system (e.g. lack of enzymes or poor gut lining integrity).
What you need to know
“IV” stands for intravenous, or “within the vein”. It is quite literally an infusion of liquids containing vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and minerals directly into the bloodstream to be administered immediately by the circulatory system. The amount of these good things administered directly (rather than through the enteric system, i.e. intestines) increases immensely with IV Therapy There is no faster way to get your body what it needs. At Arizona Wellness Center, we create custom ‘blends’ for each patient in order to reach their physical goals. We often prescribe it as part of any complete, holistic, and individualized treatment plan.
Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition.
When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may 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, and even the common cold.
All of the intravenous protocols used have been thoroughly researched in the scientific literature 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.
IV Technologies began as the result of nineteenth-century studies on cholera treatment. Medical pioneer Dr. Thomas Latta originally invented the treatment in 1831, but it was developed further during the early twentieth century by scientists Hirschfeld, Hyman, and Wanger until it was made available to the mass public during the 50’s. We are constantly improving and expanding the kinds of things IV treatments can help with, recently targeting muscular systems and specific organs.
We recommend the IV Therapy for anyone. It is a universal benefactor because we customize each treatment for your body. It is often added onto other treatments and therapies to enhance their results!
