IV nutritional therapy is a safe and effective method for replenishing the body’s vitamins and nutrients. It can be used to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions.
What is IV Nutritional Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) nutritional therapy is the process of administering a collection of vitamins, electrolytes, amino acids, and nutrients directly into the bloodstream through a vein. IVs have long been a part of medical treatment when their use became a common solution for patient care during the mid-1800s. In the 1940s, modern IV treatment as seen today came into view.
As a fast and efficient way to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves, IV nutritional therapy has shown signs of being an effective method for treating a wide variety of conditions. The body requires a certain level of vitamins and nutrients to properly function, and when starved of these vital minerals the body begins to experience breakdowns. Therefore, IV nutrition is an essential part of a wellness routine.
How Does it Work?
IV nutritional therapy works by introducing nutrients directly into the bloodstream, avoiding the gastrointestinal system, allowing higher volumes of the nutrients to be absorbed by cells. For example, vitamins consumed via diet or pill introduce limited amounts of nutrients to the body, whereas IVs can provide the body with higher quantities of nutrients needed to properly replenish the body’s deficiencies.
A nutritional therapy session involves Dr. Goodbinder selecting the right IV recipe for a patient’s specific condition, followed by a nurse administering the IV fluid to the patient. Depending on the IV and the condition, an infusion can last anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours. IV nutritional therapy has shown to be a safe and effective option when administered by a trained medical team.
Benefits to IV Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional therapy is designed to allow for highly specific patient care. Depending on a patient’s symptoms and/or condition, Dr. Goodbinder can determine the right vitamins and nutrients to introduce to their system.

Types of IV Nutritional Therapy
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, more commonly referred to as NAD+, is found in every cell in the body and is essential to life. As a coenzyme to Vitamin B3, NAD+ participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule. It helps transfer the energy we get from food to the rest of our body and is a cornerstone to maintaining healthy internal organs and neurological systems. Research has shown that NAD+ has a unique ability to protect tissues, induce DNA repair, and help increase lifespan.
Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble nutrient needed for growth and repair of all the tissues of the body. This super-nutrient boosts antioxidant levels so your immune system is better at fighting inflammation and oxidative stress. Vitamin C is also important for healthy skin and can give you a quick pick-me-up when you are feeling a little run down. If you feel run down, get sick often, and want to prevent disease, then this is the infusion for you.
The Anti-Viral Bag has all the infection-fighting power of the High Dose Vitamin C IV plus specific anti-viral nutrition to combat both acute and chronic infections.
Myers Cocktail is a carefully crafted formulation of essential nutrients known to support various health functions in the body. This quick infusion floods your body with a combination of vitamin C, magnesium, and B-vitamins which boosts your immune system and energy levels, improves nerve function, and provides overall disease prevention.
Glutathione is called the “Master Antioxidant” due to its detoxifying, immune-supporting, and anti-aging properties. Glutathione does this by binding to and eliminating free radicals from the body. In doing so, glutathione supports your immune health and your energy levels and can also improve the strength and appearance of your hair, skin, and nails. By increasing your levels of glutathione, you can increase your overall health and wellness.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid is called the “Universal Antioxidant” due to its water-soluble and fat-soluble properties allowing it to detoxify every cell of the body. This potent antioxidant detoxifies the liver, improves blood sugar utilization, and increases the levels of other antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E, glutathione, and coenzyme Q10.
Disodium EDTA Chelation
Chelation therapy is a process in which EDTA binds to heavy metals and minerals from the blood, such as lead, iron, copper, and calcium. Heavy metal toxicity has been related to neurological deterioration and cardiovascular disease. If you suffer from cardiovascular disease, known heavy metal exposure, tremors, irritability, or body hair loss then EDTA Chelation Therapy is for you.
MIC Injections are a combination of compounds (Methionine, Inositol, and Choline) that work synergistically to mobilize and process fat in the liver to be used as energy. MIC Injections increase metabolism, reduce stored body fat, increase energy, and maintain a healthy liver.
Vitamin B12 is essential in the building of blood cells, maintaining healthy nerve cells, and the formation of DNA in the body. B12 Injections rapidly elevate Vitamin B12 levels in the body giving you more energy, improved concentration and mood, better sleep patterns, and increased metabolism.
