Weight plays an important role in how we look and feel, but also in our health. Overweight is generally defined as having more body fat than is optimally healthy. Being overweight is a common condition, especially where lifestyles are sedentary. Individuals with a BMI (Body Mass Index) exceeding a healthy range have a much greater risk of medical issues.
It is common for dieters to have tried fad diets that may have short-term effects but does not lead to long-term weight loss and can often result in gaining back all of the lost weight and more in the longer term. Repeatedly losing and regaining weight (“weight cycling” or “yo-yo dieting”) may cause additional health problems beyond those associated with weight loss and being overweight.
Some people may find it difficult to lose weight on their own. For this reason, it is generally recommended that weight-loss diets not be attempted on their own but instead in combination with increased exercise, long-term planning and medically managed weight management.Our programs are tailored to your needs, abilities, and limitations.

Why should you consider IV Nutritional Therapy for your vitamins and nutrients?
What is intravenous (IV) therapy?
IV therapy is a method of delivering vital fluids and micronutrients directly into the bloodstream. IV treatments offer patients many maximum absorption benefits: increased energy, improved sleep, enhanced recovery from athletic events or surgical procedures, superior immune support, anti-aging effects and stress relief.
Who administers and supervises IV treatments?
All IV treatments are designed and administered by one of our skilled medical practitioners. Our physicians conduct an interview and medical history screening with each patient prior to treatment. Depending on your issues a variety of lab tests may be ordered to for your custom IV treatment. The IV is delivered by our skilled nursing staff incident to your doctor’s orders.
Are there any negative side effects?
IV therapy is usually very well tolerated and therefore poses minimal health risks. There can be bruising and sometimes you can feel a slight burning, which is possible with any IV.
What is the difference between IV therapy and oral vitamins?
The key is absorption. A small percentage of oral vitamins are ultimately absorbed into the blood stream, and high doses of oral vitamins can cause irritation. An IV therapy treatment delivers 100% of each vitamin directly into the bloodstream, which is why patients experience an immediate effect and complete absorption.
Are IV treatments covered by insurance?
There are many cases where insurance does not cover these treatments. In some cases, treatments may be reimbursed if an insurer agrees the treatment is medically necessary and testing demonstrates medical need. But them again you are dealing with managed care guidelines and high deductibles and if this is deemed more preventative as the reason for the therapy, the chances are slim to none for any coverage.
Human nature - 39 years in practice has taught me that if you are not feeling lousy, you tend to do nothing. That said, if you want to be proactive and preventative, let me share with you my top recommendations for taking some form of vitamin-nutrition supplements.
