Don’t underestimate the importance of nutrients. It’s believed that disease can be caused by nutrient deficiencies, as well as by certain toxins invading the body.
It’s thought that nutrients like Vitamin C and Glutathione can address these issues. Unfortunately, the oral intake of nutrients is often insufficient – there’s only so much Vitamin C that you can consume before you experience an upset stomach.
IV Therapy delivers important nutrients directly into your bloodstream to provide you with the highest possible levels while avoiding potential gastric symptoms. With IV infusions, Dr. Williams treats digestive issues like ulcerative colitis and infections like hepatitis.

What is IV Therapy?
IV (intravenous) Therapy is the delivery of nutrients like vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. IV Therapy is used to deliver nutrients to the cells more efficiently.
Is IV Therapy for Me?
IV Therapy may be especially beneficial for those with the following digestive issues:
- low stomach acid
- food sensitivities
- leaky gut
- irritable bowel syndrome
- food allergies
These issues can interfere with the intestinal breaking-down of food, meaning that much of the nutrients are excreted rather than absorbed through the digestive tract lining and sent to the bloodstream.
How Does IV Therapy Work?
By delivering the nutrients directly into your bloodstream, IV therapy avoids digestive issues, gastric symptoms, and nutrient dosing limitations, providing nutrients at a higher concentration then consuming them orally would.
IV Therapies at The Wellness & Aesthetics Medical Center usually take about 30 minutes to 2 hours to perform in our office. You’ll relax during the entire visit. Dr. Williams will explain to you any aftercare instructions, how soon you can expect to see results, and how long the effects of IV Therapy will last.
What Can IV Therapy Treat?
IV Therapy can be used to improve a wide number of conditions, such as:
- gluten sensitivity
- yeast infection
- intestinal parasites
- chronic sinusitis
- chronic fatigue syndrome
- adrenal fatigue
- ulcerative colitis
- Crohn's disease
- Parkinson's disease
- Viral & Bacterial Infections

IV Therapy is also used to address nutrient deficiencies caused by surgical procedures like gastric bypass, lap band, and gallbladder removal, as well as for liver detoxification and wound healing.
IV Therapy Procedures
There are many types of IV Therapy, each using their own nutrient or combination of nutrients. Before receiving your IV drip, Dr. Williams will review your medical history to determine which therapy is best for your condition:
- Myers Cocktail – a combination of vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin B12, and calcium to fight disease and help the immune system
- High Dose Vitamin C – this antioxidant helps strengthen the immune system
- IV Glutathione – this antioxidant is used for detox
- IV EDTA Chelation – uses ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid to remove toxic metals from the body
- Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy – causes the release of oxygen molecules to fight disease and remove toxins
- Phosphatidylcholine – can improve cellular membrane integrity to bring nutrients into the cells and remove toxins from them
- IV Arginine – this amino acid is especially useful for treating cardiovascular conditions and healing wounds
Other IV Therapies include Energy Infusion, Chronic Fatigue Protocol, and a Hepatitis Protocol. Dr. Williams will explain these to you in more detail.
