There are many forms of IV's that are used by our doctors, including:

One of the most commonly recommended IV's is called the Tru Meyer's Cocktail. This IV treatment is a combination of B-Vitamins, Vitamin C and other micronutrients that have powerful healing properties. The original version of this IV was developed by a doctor by the name of John Myers over 50 years ago.
We offer an expanded and cutting edge version of this old recipe. We see many benefits to patients that receive this treatment including:
Parenteral micronutrient therapy (IV therapy, IVNT, micronutrient therapy) has a very long safety record in the united states. The absence of adverse outcomes is due in large part to the fact that the nutrients are naturally occurring and essential for optimal function of the human body and its many complex systems. The nutrients (vitamins, amino acids, minerals) are actually quite simple in structure and have low potential for hypersensitivity or antigenicity.
Micronutrient Testing and Analysis
Are you getting the nutrients that you need in order to feel your best and be your best every day? How would you know?
At Tru Health Medicine, we believe that a healthy diet is essential but that our body’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients is equally important. Even if you are conscientious about what you eat and follow a healthy diet, you may be deficient in some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients and not even know it. Research shows that nutrient deficiencies are common, and that 50% of those who are already taking supplements have some type of deficiency.

Prescription medications and disruptions in digestive function can also cause nutrient deficiencies. Many of our patients have questions about their supplements: Are they taking too many supplements or not enough? Are they taking the supplements that their bodies need for greater health?
Micronutrient testing can help answer some of these questions and is an invaluable diagnostic tool that can help identify nutrient deficiencies that may be obstructing your health and overall wellness. This test measures your body’s ability to absorb vital nutrients through a comprehensive analysis of vitamin, mineral, amino acid and antioxidant levels. This blood test tells can help identify if you have a deficiency in any of the above and help determine an appropriate treatment for how to correct it. By identifying any existing deficiencies, you limit unnecessary spending on costly supplements and invest in specific nutrient therapies that your body needs to increase your overall health and performance.
Our nutritional status is vital as a foundation for our overall health and performance and vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. With results from micronutrient testing, our doctors can help set you up with a customized plan to provide your body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best while slowing down the aging process and helping prevent chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer.
Getting an IV of these required nutrients ensures that they are absorbed into the target cells as a result of being delivered directly into the bloodstream, rather than relying on the minimal GI absorption of oral supplements or food lacking food sources of these elements. The GI also will alter the nutrients due to the effect of digestive enzymes, which is a problem that can be avoided with direct cellular nutrition as a result of IV therapy.
The advantage of using nutrients, herbal extracts, and other naturally derived parenteral substances is the lack of side effects. The principle reason for nutritional IV therapy is to supply elements of normal body metabolism and those required for resolution of illness.
