When your water intake does not equal your output, you can become dehydrated. Fluid losses are accentuated in warmer climates, during strenuous exercise, in high altitudes, and in older adults, whose sense of thirst may not be as sharp.
IV therapy injects nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This allows the nutrients to go to work, and bypasses the digestive tract where the concentration of nutrients is diluted by stomach acid and other factors.During your IV therapy session, one of our clinical staff inserts a hollow needle into a vein, usually in the inside bend of your elbow. This needle is attached to a tube that is used to slowly feed the nutrient-enriched liquid into your blood system. Once all the liquid has been administered, we remove the needle and cover the area with a bandage.Our staff may discuss lifestyle changes that will enhance your capacity to maintain proper nutrient levels.
John Myers, M.D., was a physician in Maryland who advocated for the use of IV therapy to address chronic health conditions and nutritional deficiencies. This blend was developed by the doctor and gained popularity when Dr. Alan Gaby integrated it into his wellness treatments.

Your body uses vitamin C as an antioxidant and to support certain enzymes, such as lysine and proline that are necessary for collagen production. The nutrient also helps heal the bones and skin. Vitamin C IV therapy delivers a high concentration of the nutrient into your bloodstream so that your body has adequate levels.
We place a hollow needle (catheter) into the vein of your arm, usually the inside of the elbow bend. If we are unable to use these veins, we find an area that will accommodate the needle. The vitamin C blend is prepared prior to your appointment and placed in an IV drip bag. We set the rate for the drip, and you relax for the remainder of the treatment. Expect your vitamin C IV therapy to take 30 minutes or less.
Glutathione is an antioxidant that is naturally produced by your body, but levels decrease as we get older and because of stress, poor diet and other factors. Glutathione is comprised of three key amino acids — cysteine, glutamine and glycine. It also contains a group of sulfurs that remove toxins, free radicals and heavy metals from the body.
Dr. Ambrozic may recommend glutathione IV therapy to help patients living with:
Upper respiratory inflammation associated with COPD, asthma and allergies,
Inflammation in the brain associated with Parkinson’s Disease, memory loss, Alzheimer’s Disease and other types of limited brain function,
Diabetes, heart disease and other types of inflammation in the arteries and veins,
Southern Vein & Laser Center offers glutathione IV therapy because it is important for:
Strengthening the immune system,
Removing toxins from the body,
Strengthening and protecting cells in the body
Every cell in our body relies on oxygen to function properly. When we breathe in, air enters our lungs where a small amount of oxygen is extracted. The oxygen molecules then attach to red blood cells that work as the delivery vehicles for cells in the body. The air we breathe is comprised of about 21 percent oxygen, and the health benefits can be increased with higher concentrations of oxygen. Southern Vein & Laser Center offers oxygen therapy as a way to give your body a higher level of oxygen on a short-term basis. Although the treatments are relatively brief, the boost in oxygen levels can have far-reaching effects.
Athletes have used IV therapy for many years as a way to quickly and safely deliver key nutrients to their bodies. Taking supplements orally has limitations, as the digestive process reduces the amount of vitamins and minerals that is actually absorbed. Delivering these same nutrients via IV ensures that an athlete receives 100 percent of the dosage.
Southern Vein & Laser Center offers a Recovery and Sports Blend that is specifically designed to meet the demands of an athlete’s body. The IV therapy blend contains B12, magnesium, B complex, glutathione, vitamin K, vitamin D and vitamin E. Dr. Ambrozic may recommend tailoring the specific nutrients for your Recovery and Sports Blend treatments.
IV therapy with our Recovery and Sports Blend produces no unwanted side effects, and it boosts performance naturally. Athletes tell us that they note shorter recovery times, better fat burning, boosted metabolism and short healing from injuries. Each person is unique, so the Recovery and Sports Blend IV therapy may affect you differently
