As a leader in the field of mental health, Amen Clinics has treated an array of psychiatric conditions over the past 29 years and has amassed the world’s largest database of brain scans at 140,000 and growing. Though many people have come to know about us due to the remarkable results we’ve seen with brain SPECT imaging, we also offer a wide range of therapy options at the nationwide Amen Clinics locations. One of the brain health and wellness services we are excited to recommend is IV Nutrient Therapy.
What is IV Nutrient Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) nutrient infusions can help replenish your body’s essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids, and help to restore balanced brain functioning. IV nutrient therapy is ideal for those seeking to detoxify their body, increase immune function, reduce symptoms and improve overall health.
How Does It Work?
At the beginning of a session, a patient will enter the treatment room and sit in a comfortable chair. An IV solution (fluid of vitamins and nutrients) is then administered directly into a vein. The patient will remain seated until the IV bag has been depleted.
Who Does It Treat?
IV therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions and is ideal for individuals who are tired, dehydrated, stressed or struggling with a chronic illness. Treatments are customized based on a patient’s needs. Below are just a few of the conditions IV therapy has been used to treat:
• Autoimmune and Neurological Conditions
• Memory Problems/Dementia
• Mold Exposure
• Heavy Metal Toxicity
• Parkinson’s Disease
• Lyme Disease
• Chronic Fatigue
What Are the Benefits?
IV nutrient therapy is a fast, effective, and natural option for improving your health and wellness. IV treatments infuse nutrients directly into the bloodstream, which allows large doses to be administered without upsetting the stomach, creating absorption issues or losing potency.
Types of IV Nutrient Therapy
Amen Clinics offers IV therapies for a variety of needs and conditions. Here are our specially formulated IVs:
Also called the Myers Cocktail, the CALM IV is a well-known and highly effective IV formulation for anxiety and relaxation that consists of high doses of B vitamins, magnesium, and other nutrients.
The mother of all antioxidants, ANTIOX IV can consist of glutathione, alpha lipoic acid (ALA), or both (depending on what’s best for the patient), and can help the brain, liver, intestines and kidneys.
The IMMUNE IV contains powerful doses of buffered vitamin C and is especially helpful for anyone suffering from an immune disorder or who needs a physical and mental boost.
The BOOST IV contains high dose vitamin C and a multivitamin/mineral combination that’s great for those who are worn down by stress or illness, or just seeking to stay healthy and energized. Great for cold and flu season.
CLEANSE COMBO (CHELATION THERAPY)
The CLEANSE COMBO uses specific chelators like ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) to remove toxic metals – including aluminum, cadmium and lead – from the body.
PHOSPHOLIPID EXCHANGE THERAPY (PXT)
PXT can help a range of disorders and is an effective means of detoxifying cell membranes by replacing the bad fats and oils in a person’s membranes with good essential fatty acids, creating younger, healthier membranes.
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is primarily used to generate energy within your cells. NAD has been used to help improve concentration, focus, memory, mood, addiction, age-related diseases and chronic fatigue.
How Many Sessions Are Recommended?
The type of IV therapy and the number of sessions will be determined by an Amen Clinics medical professional trained in IV therapy. Sessions generally last between 30 to 60 minutes.
Is it Safe?
IV therapy isn’t safe for everyone. People with some allergies, on specific medications, or with certain conditions (such as congestive heart failure) may not be good candidates. It’s critical to have a thorough medical consultation before starting IV therapy. Choosing your own concoction, without a physician’s supervision, can be dangerous.
The Amen Clinics medical staff are highly trained experts in IV nutrient therapy. These administrators are licensed medical providers. Our infusions are made with 100% certified and sterile ingredients that are FDA registered.
