IV Therapy at Roots Natural Medicine
We like to think of our IV Therapy Lounge as a detox spa. Of course, it’s quiet and relaxing like a spa, and we like to pamper you and cater to your every need. But it goes deeper than that, a lot deeper. You know the feeling you get when you ease into a natural hot spring? How bathing in the warmth of the healing waters restores you? The cells in your body feel the same way when you receive our IVs and Nutritional Injections; they are bathed in a luxuriant lake of revitalizing nutrients- a veritable whirlpool of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and powerful antioxidants. Think of an IV as an “inner vacation;” no longer deficient, your happy, refreshed cells will be ready to go full-speed ahead!
Relax in our IV Lounge for 1 to 3 hours while receiving your nutrients and hydration. Feel free to bring your device to watch videos or listen to your own music (please bring ear-buds). We also recommend that you bring a healthy snack with protein. Many of our patients read a book or magazine while others prefer to take a nap!
*Important: All IV treatments require a brief consultation ($50) or physician referral. New patients may only receive certain IVs until appropriate labs are ordered by the doctor or provided by patient (CBC, CMP and G6PD). Note: the brief consultation is not a comprehensive New Patient visit, it will only serve to make sure you are a candidate for the IV Therapy. If you are interested in Naturopathic medical guidance, please schedule a full Naturopathic New Patient visit.
Below is a menu of some of our standardized formulas. We can also customize an IV to best meet the various unique needs of our patients. Nutritional Injections are also available.

Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)- Boosts energy, improves mood, fatigue, depression, and metabolism. Selenium - fights inflammation, increases blood flow, reduces free radical oxidative stress, and helps with antioxidant activity.
IV High Dose Vitamin C
IV High Dose Vitamin C is often used in Cancer, Lyme Disease, EBV, chronic fatigue and other autoimmune disorder treatments. The maximum Vitamin C dose that can be taken and absorbed orally without adverse digestive side effects is between 4-6 grams a day. At doses higher than 25 grams, IV Vitamin C undergoes a profound change and becomes and oxidant, not an anti-oxidant. While our cells thrive and benefit from oxidation, bacteria, viruses, fungi and cancer cells are damaged from oxidation. IV High Dose Vitamin C also creates peroxides which are vital for thyroid health. Thyroid conditions such as hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's greatly benefit from IV High Dose Vitamin C.

IV Ozone Therapy
(Major Auto Hemotherapy)
The most common form of medical IV ozone is Major Autohemotherapy (MAH). This involves taking about 200mL of blood from a patient, mixing it with 100mL of sterile saline, exposing it to medical grade ozone, and dripping it back into a patient via an IV. The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes.
Ozone reacts instantaneously with proteins and cell membranes in the blood, creating organic compounds known as ozonides which then carry out oxidative processes as they circulate in the body. While our cells thrive and benefit from oxidation, bacteria, viruses, fungi and cancer cells are damaged from oxidation. The immune system is also stimulated by ozone and helps your body tackle infections and inflammation. Additionally, biochemical pathways are enhanced which support basic cellular functions such as producing increased energy, supporting cellular repairs and detoxification.
MAH IV's are great for addressing generalized pain, chronic infections such as Lyme and Epstein Barr, autoimmune disorders, anti-aging, and cancer prevention and support. Patients often notice increased energy and symptom improvement on the same day.
It is a triple threat to toxins: it neutralizes free radicals, enhances the immune system, & detoxifies the liver. Modern life — everything from refined foods to over-the-counter painkillers to stress — robs the body of this vital antioxidant. Also, even if you’re doing everything right, aging takes a bite. Around age 45, our glutathione levels start to slip. Ultimately, those levels can dip as much as 50% below optimal as we age.
Decreased Glutathione levels have been linked to a number of age-related diseases, including Alzheimer’s and macular degeneration. A 2004 study by the University of Alabama found that the red blood cells in male Alzheimer’s patients showed a significant lack of glutathione. A study of patients with heart disease found that the lower the levels of glutathione, the more likely they were to have a heart attack.
Unfortunately, oral supplementation of glutathione often does not work – it is degraded in the stomach and intestines by acid and enzymes. The only way significantly boost your levels is either though intramuscular or intravenous injection.

IV Alpha Lipoic Acid (PolyMVA)
Poly-MVA supercharges your mitochondria making it a perfect tool for helping cancer patients recover from Radiation therapy, either during or after. Poly-MVA is also great for Lyme patients who have undergone multiple rounds of antibiotics or any one who has had prolonged side effects from antibiotic use.
IV Poly MVA helps the body heal by:
- Assists in preventing cell damage
- Supports oxygenation of cells and tissues
- Helps the body to produce energy for proper cell function
- Supports the liver in removing harmful substances from the body
- Works as a powerful antioxidant
- Supports nerve and neurotransmitter function
- Enhances proper cellular function for normal cells
Poy-MVA is a uniquely-formulated IV therapy containing a proprietary blend of the mineral palladium bonded to alpha-lipoic acid, Vitamins B1, B2 and B12, methionine, N-acetyl cysteine, plus trace amounts of molybdenum, rhodium, and ruthenium. This formulation is designed to provide energy for compromised body systems by changing the electrical potential of human cells and facilitating aerobic metabolism within the cell. This formulation also provides a very stable form of Alpha Lipoic Acid for the body to use.

IV Phosphatidylcholine - PTC Therapy
Here are some of the many benefits of PTC therapy:
- Heavy metal detoxification
- Chemical Toxicity
- Mold toxicity
- Cardiovascular Disease and Hyperlipidemia
- Neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, stroke, and Multiple Sclerosis
- Autism & developmental delay
- Chronic infections such as Lyme disease, Hepatitis C, and PANDAS
- Anti-aging & longevity
Patients with cardiovascular disease, liver disease, neuropathies, and neurological diseases such as ALS can greatly benefit from PTC therapy. PTC therapy helps reverse age-related changes in the lipid composition of organs and tissues. The same results cannot be obtained using oral doses since only about 5 -10% is made utilizable in the blood and tissues.
