Immune Supporting IV Therapies

Support your immune system with multivitamin infusions! Vitamin deficiencies are common in our society due to poor nutrition from processed foods. Stress, general illness, and surgery cause oxidative stress in the body leaving you susceptible to infections and delayed healing.  Fatigue, brainfog, insomnia, fibromyalgia, and decreased energy are what result from this excess oxidative situation. Your body is always fighting off 'internal rust' just like any metal does. This 'rust' results in rapid aging.

You can treat this process with high dose Vitamin C mixed with B vitamins and trace minerals. A superimmune 'cocktail' will provide Calcium, Magnesium,Vitamin C, Vitamin B-5, B6, selenium, zinc, trace minerals, Glutathione, and others. This combination quenches free-radicals that cause the internal 'rust' and promotes your health and healing.

We also use other formulations as well to promote a recovering immune system. For some, we can use an executive stress protocol, which includes Magnesium , calcium, high-dose Vitamin C, Glycerhizzic acid (immune stimulating) , zinc, dexpanthenol (for energy), with a Glutathione push at the end for anti-oxidation effect.

Remember, every day, the chemical reactions in our body are creating oxidative chemicals that stress and rust us from the inside like a piece of iron laying in the rain. This leads to fatigue, brain fog, illness, and poor aging.  Why let this happen when you can do something to feel better and be healthy? Call 703-844-0184 to schedule today!

Peak Performance IV Therapy

Are you a body builder? Are you a cyclist or runner preparing for a big race? Overtrained? Nothing is worse than bonking after you have trained so hard to have a successful competition! Maybe you are just health conscious and concerned about maintaining your health and peak fitness? Policemen, security, and fire personnel need to maintain themselves for peak performance.

We can create a formulation that will assist you in meeting your goals. We can address concerns you may have in your own nutritional and vitamin deficiencies. We can have you tested for them as well as treated so you can rise above your plateau of performance.

We will use one of several approaches depending on what concerns you consultation demonstrates. A general repletion formula with IV Multivitamins, trace minerals, B12, and Glutathione will give you hydration, anti-oxidant capacity, and vitamins to allow for maximum healing and muscle generation. We will add an anti-inflammatory to the mixture if you are over-trained and having muscle aches.

Another consideration is a pre-race IV hydration panel, using IV fluids to hydrate you fully, adding multi-vitamins to enhance muscle performance.

Mood, fibromyalgia, pain, addiction IV Therapies

Sad all the time? Fatigued with brain fog? Do you have frequent migraines?Do you have low energy? Do you have sleepless nights due to chronic pain and fibromyalgia? IV nutritional therapies offer an opportunity for you to gain your energy back as well as you mood. As we are supplying your vitamin and nutrition through an IV, it will directly enter your system to have rapid, immediate effect.

An Easy Myers Cocktail, with Vitamin B-5 for energy, B-12, B-complex, Calcium, Vitamin C, and Magnesium can promote rapid relief of nutritional deficiencies.  Other considerations include a Mini infusion that would also include selenium and folic acid with Glutathione to boost your anti-oxidant potential.

For others, a basic Banana Bag offers the right combination of multivitamins and trace elements to promote healing and recovery. If you have been sick with a GI bug, or have a migraine or hangover, we can also provide a formula to help your symptoms by using IV fluids (1-2 liters), toradol for pain, Magnesium as a muscle relaxant, Zofran for nausea, and B12/Vitamin C to fight infection. Varying combinations are used depending on the clinical situation.

Over half the population has SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) such as MTHFR that prevents them from utilizing oral vitamins appropriately. We can analyze this through nutrigenomics studies to assess an oral regimen that may work best for you. This may promote a long term solution to your situation.

Weight Loss IV/IM therapies

Weight loss can be very difficult as diets are hard to follow and it is frustrating to not see results. NOVA Health Recovery offers weight loss strategies which include the use of intravenous and intramuscular nutrients to boost your metabolism. You can't outrun a poor diet, so exercise alone is not the solution nor is just eating less. An appropriate balance of protein is necessary to prevent muscle loss during any diet. This muscle loss can cause your basal metabolic rate to drop resulting in weight gain during your diet! Often during the dieting process, fatigue. muscle aches, and low energy result due to nutrient and vitamin deficiencies.

IV therapies to boost immunity and energy can be helpful during your weight loss journey. We offer IV fluids with B vitamins and trace minerals designed to replete your starving muscles needs. Based on each clinical case, we will add varying degrees of additional supplements as well to maximize your recovery. The banana bag represents the most general repletion formula.

MIC injections are fat dissolving injections that we offer to help mobilize fat out of your muscles and bodies.  MIC Injection specially blends the following important ingredients: Methionine - The "M" in MIC Injection, is an essential amino acid, which means that it is not synthesized in humans. This amino acid acts as a lipotropic agent which: assists in the breakdown of fats within the liver; helps to lower cholesterol thereby preventing excess fat buildup in the liver and throughout your body’s circulatory system; is helpful in preventing and relieving fatigue; and is useful in some cases of allergies by virtue of its ability to reduce histamine release. Inositol - The "I" in MIC Injection, is a B-vitamin that promotes: the health of cell structures and nerve synapses; aids in the metabolism of fats; helps reduce blood cholesterol; and participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.Choline - The "C" in MIC Injection, is an essential nutrient that helps to support the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular, and hepatic systems.

Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B-12) - This form of B-12 vitamin is used in our Lipo-B injection and plays a significant role in the replication of DNA, the normal functioning of the nervous system, and the formation of blood cells. The vitamin B-12 injection has been shown to provide these key benefits: boosts energy and overall metabolic rate; assists in the burning of stored body fat; detoxifies the body; increases red blood cell production; maintains a healthy liver; helps regulate sleep, mood, appetite and energy; works synergistically with other nutrients to improve health; and slows aging. B-12 is used with Methionine and Choline as well to promote fat mobilization and weight loss.

L-Carnitine - Carnitine is an amino acid which is required for the transport and breakdown of body fat for the generation of metabolic energy. Studies show that oral L-Carnitine supplementation can decrease fat mass, preserve muscle during exercise, and reduce muscle fatigue.  Further research over the last decade has shed new light on the importance of L-carnitine as a regulator of skeletal muscle fuel selection, which means it is needed to determine whether muscle tissue utilizes carbohydrates or fat for energy.This therapy is mixed with methionine and inositol to promote maximal fat mobilization.

Other considerations for great weight loss strategies include Vitamin D (IM) . Low vitamin D will prevent weight loss. Likewise, using nutrigenomic support, or empirically, we can recommend the use of methylation strategies to help with mood and energy. These are primarily oral strategies, but we also can utilize a 'calm' injectionof GABA, Taurine, Theanine, and magnesium. Together, this also maximizes weight loss.

NOVA Health Recovery recognizes the importance of genetic testing in determining the best options for weight loss. This same testing also helps with other medication choices, including for pain management. Such pathways can be individually tailored on a personalized medicine-style manner. Feel free to discuss this with the doctor.
