IV Therapy

High dose vitamins, minerals and antioxidants

The absence of toxins is a prerequisite for health, but so is the presence of nutrients. Eating the right foods isn’t always possible and does not guarantee that you are getting everything your body needs. IV nutrition therapy infuses amino acids, vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, delivering these nutrients into the cellular space and by-passing the digestive tract where much of the nutritional value of foods and supplements can be lost.

IV nutritional therapy is perfect for individuals looking to boost their overall health, improve athletic performance, reduce the effects of aging, manage stress, and enhance physical appearance.

Many people notice improved immunity, increased energy and an enhanced feeling of wellbeing from the enrichment in cellular health. The IV Therapy Program at the International Health & Wellness Center includes components targeting Immune Support, Low Energy, Headaches, Nausea, Cold & Flu, Anti-Aging, Beauty and Dehydration. IV nutrient therapy provides higher therapeutic doses when compared to oral supplementation.

Program Overview:

The IV Therapy program at The International Health and Wellness Center includes compo¬nents targeting Immune Support, Low Energy, Headaches, Nausea, Cold & Flu, Anti-Aging, Beauty and Dehydration. IV nutrient therapy also provides higher therapeutic doses, when compared to oral supplementation. This meth¬od of administration can be life changing for patients with digestive issues or malabsorption, such as in Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Immune Support

Detoxification, almost by definition, supports the immune system. IV Therapy for immune support detoxes the system and boosts immune function. Using the major anti-oxidant, Vitamin C, for example, combats various toxicities that invade our system and also acts as a natural antibiotic, thus boosting immune function dramatically.

Anti-Aging & Beauty

Call it IV Therapy or the fountain of youth but studies have proven that vitamins administered intravenously can do everything from boost your glow to increase your energy levels. Using a mix of essential amino acids and B Vita¬mins, you’ll notice fine lines under the eyes are smoother, cheeks are rosier and energy levels are higher after just one treatment.

Health & Wellness

The benefits of IV Therapy are immense and immediate. You will notice an improved overall sense of wellbeing, fewer symptoms of cold, flu, allergy and sinus, relief of acute migraine symptoms and enhanced athletic perfor¬mance, to name a few. Call today to schedule your consul¬tation and take a chance on a restorative new treatment designed specifically for you.

Restore. Refresh. Renew.

ProActive Mindfulness

Old thought patterns we first developed in our childhood typically drive our reactions to worry, cause anxiety, reduce health and wellness levels, and contribute to poor decision making. Whether conscious or unconscious, it is the power of thought. Through focused intention and consciousness in meditative states, old thought patterns and reactions can be replaced with healthy thoughts, just like upgrading your computer’s software. Energetically this leads to a sense of peace, relaxation and responsiveness to all that life will bring your way.

Join Michelle Houchens in learning how to meditate, get conscious about unconscious thought and emotional patterns to sculpt the masterpiece that you are. Michelle’s 30+ years in medicine and Corporate America built a portfolio of experience that allows her to transcend realms of consciousness that defy time, space, and matter. The ability to connect and understand energy in multiple dimensions is her gift.
