Treatment Spotlight: IV and Ozone Therapy
Intravenous Nutrient Therapy, often simply referred to as IV Therapy, involves the slow infusion of vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream to provide a fast and efficient way to deliver fluids and nutrients to the body. Benefits of IV Therapy can include increased energy, immune system support and enhanced recovery. IV therapy bypasses digestion where nutrient availability may be lost in the digestive process.
At Rize Fitness, our Naturopathic Doctors, Dr. Aubrey Shannon and Dr. Lauren Crape, will prepare a solution tailored to your individual needs, which you can enjoy in one of our big comfy chairs with entertainment as your infusion is delivered.
IV Therapy is commonly used for:
- Boosting mood and energy
- Preventing illness
- Reducing symptoms
- Improving recovery
- Enhancing cognitive function
- Chelation therapy for improved blood flow, cardiovascular function and heavy metal detoxification
- Improving chronic conditions, such as: migraines, chronic infection, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcerative colitis.
In addition to individually tailored Intravenous Nutrient Therapy, our IV program also includes blood ozone (aka Major Autohemotherapy) and intramuscular (IM) injections for Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, adrenal support and weight loss support.
Ozone Therapy, delivered by Major Autohemotherapy, involves drawing blood and into an IV bag and infusing it with medical ozone (O3) to be intravenously injected back into the body. As we age, we become less efficient at transporting and using oxygen which is critical to thousands of vital chemical reactions in the body. Stress, infections, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition and other factors also reduce our ability to efficiently oxygenate the body’s tissues. Ozone therapy stimulates oxygenation, improves energy production, metabolism, the immune system, and acts as an antimicrobial agent.
Ozone therapy is frequently used to help treat conditions, including:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Chronic infections
- Skin conditions
- Immune deficiency
- Cardiovascular disease
