IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a popular service that provides your body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay healthy. IV therapy also boosts your energy and alleviates symptoms of a number of conditions, such as:

  • Colds
  • Hangovers
  • Migraines
  • Vitamin deficiencies

Dr. Paziotopoulos can also prepare a custom blend of vitamins to help you get ready for an upcoming sporting event, such as a marathon.

IV therapy is available for walk-in clients or you can schedule IV therapy in advance when treating medical issues.

What kinds of IV therapies are available?

Dr. Paziotopoulos uses your medical history and current health to determine what vitamins and nutrients your body is lacking. He can perform comprehensive testing to create a custom IV treatment plan.

You can select from a number of customized infusions filled with essential vitamins and minerals. Some of the common ingredients Dr. Paziotopoulos uses in therapy include:

  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Amino acids
  • Antioxidants

Dr. Paziotopoulos can also administer chelation therapy to reduce the effects of toxins on your body.

How does chelation therapy work?

Chelation therapy is an effective method for eliminating unhealthy toxins from your body. Dr. Paziotopoulos delivers ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) into your bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) line.

The EDTA travels through your blood, collecting toxins in your bloodstream. It finds different minerals and forms a compound that you eliminate as waste when you urinate.

Different chelation therapies are available to address your specific health needs. For instance, the Nanosilver IV can remove particles of silver in your blood that are often used medically for treating bacterial or fungal infections.

Dr. Paziotopoulos also offers Plaquex® therapies, which help remove fatty deposits in your arteries to reduce your risk for heart-related health conditions.

What kind of results can I expect from IV therapy?

IV therapy offers many benefits, including immediate results after treatment. You can enjoy an overall sense of well-being and benefits like:

  • Quality hydration
  • Increased energy
  • Improved immunity
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Better mental clarity

IV therapy can also be effective in reducing discomfort and pain from conditions like migraines and muscle aches.
