IV Therapy

High dose vitamins, minerals and antioxidants

IV (Intravenous) therapy is a wonderful way to get a high dose of vitamins, minerals and antiox¬idants directly into the bloodstream. Thus, the nutrients are rapidly infused into the circulation and are delivered directly into the cellular space without having to go through the digestive tract.

Many people notice superior immunity, in¬creased energy and enhanced detoxification from the improvement in cellular health. When cellular health is supported, the body is able to effectively utilize the nutrients supporting the major bodily systems.

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

For more information about IV Therapy CLICK HERE>>

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.

ProActive Fitness

Have you ever felt overwhelmed or confused on what is the best type of exercise for you? The majority of us know that exercise is important and good for our health; however, the universal nature of exercise “research” and fitness trends can often times be misleading. According to the CDC, nearly 80% of adults do not meet the recommended guidelines for physical activity in the United States, which is at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise each week or 75 minutes (1.15 hours) of vigorous-intensity activity, or a combination of both. Adults are recommended to also engage in muscle-strengthening activities like lifting weights or exercises such as push-ups at least two times a week. Regular activity is essential to prevent and reduce risks of many diseases and improve physical and mental health – it can even help you live longer!

If you are wondering what exercise program will help generate the best results in the least amount of time…this will be different for each individual. The team at IHWC utilize a customized, educational, and holistic approach to health and fitness. This unique and integrated fitness experience will help answer your questions and facilitate a sustainable path to optimal performance involving the four main types of physical activity; cardiovascular, strength, high-intensity interval training and balance/flexibility.Join our fitness experts at the new and prestigious fitness facilities for a personalized program to enhance your overall health and physical fitness.

ProActive Structural Health

Dr. Wells is a trained Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) medicine with extensive international experience in the fields of Applied Kinesiology (AK), Functional Neurology (FN) and Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex treatments (P-DTR).

Traditionally, musculoskeletal problems and pain have been addressed by a number of methods including invasive corrections (surgery), manipulation of joints (standard chiropractic treatments), tissue (massage) or the body’s energy (acupuncture). AK emphasizes performance enhancement and normalization of the musculoskeletal system and has as its basic tenant that every organ dysfunction is accompanied by a specific muscle weakness. This principle enables the practitioner to diagnose diseases through muscle-testing procedures. FN takes AK techniques one step further utilizing muscle-testing by combining AK and chiropractic neurology as a modality that aims to integrate all of the brain’s sensory activities in order to treat a variety of clinical and subclinical symptoms. P-DTR goes even deeper and addresses musculoskeletal problems by focusing on an important, but often overlooked, system of the human body: the mechanoreceptor system. The mechanoreceptors in our bodies function as the ultimate sensory input to our brain providing commands for the muscle to tense (contract) and release (relax) appropriately. As the controllers of our muscles mechanoreceptors provide the brain with the necessary feedback to allow optimal muscle function as in many instances breakdown of this crucial feedback system results in chronically tensed or weak muscles.

Dr. Wells uses all of these techniques to provide optimal results and has been helping his clients for over 16 years. He brings a wealth of experience to the IHWC as well as Colorado Springs.
