What is Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy supplies the body with the necessary minerals and vitamins to replenish deficiencies and promote healing. Rich nutrients are delivered through the solution from an IV line, port, or PICC line directly into your bloodstream.

What types of Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy are available?

Best Naturopathic Medicine provides Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy plans customized to you and your specific needs. Your IV therapy may include:

Cancer Support

Cancer Support is for people having cancer treatment, which helps them fight the disease but often leaves them feeling exhausted. Vitamin C can help you fight cancer better, as the infusion contains essential vitamins to replenish your energy. Your board-certified Naturopathic Doctor might recommend adding Alpha-lipoic Acid as well.

Alpha-lipoic Acid (ALA)

ALA offers many benefits, such as reversing oxidant damage associated with aging, chronic illness, and chronic conditions. It also helps detoxify and restore other antioxidant levels, glucose (blood sugar) levels, and inflammation and may relieve certain kinds of neuropathy. This fatty acid is a natural yet powerful antioxidant, like vitamin C.

High-Dose IV Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a natural yet powerful antioxidant that decreases inflammation and improves disease-related symptoms, antioxidant deficiency, and side effects of standard cancer treatments.


When given during chemotherapy and for six months after chemotherapy has ended, studies show those who received Vitamin C Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy had fewer side effects from chemotherapy. This study treated people with refractory colorectal cancer or metastatic melanoma with Vitamin C, arsenic trioxide, and other drugs.


Glutathione IV therapy delivers the powerful antioxidant directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive tract. It offers a range of benefits, such as improved mobility and the reduction of oxidative stress and cell damage. It protects cell mitochondria and gets rid of free radicals.

Who does Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy benefit?

Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy offers many health benefits to those undergoing integrative oncology treatment for cancer or autoimmune disease. Patients with chronic conditions such as chronic viral infections, Lyme disease, autoimmune disease, thyroid disease and diabetes can also benefit.
