IV Nutritional Therapy

We offer intravenous therapies that will support your general wellbeing, treat nutrient deficiencies, as well as support your healing journey at The UltraWellness Center. While we strongly believe in a food-as-medicine approach to healing, we also understand the value a “flood of nourishment” provides to patients healing from chronic illness and those seeking a return to optimal health. IV infusions and nutrient injections filled with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can often be the turning point to spark a reversal of symptoms for those with chronic illness, or those looking to optimize their health and performance. Read more below to learn why this therapy is so powerful.

WHY IV THERAPY

Intravenous therapies are exceptionally powerful because they circumvent issues with oral administration, including upset stomach, absorption issues, and loss of potency. In addition, since the nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream and avoid the gastrointestinal system, large doses can be administered without gastrointestinal side effects.

BENEFITS

IV nutrient administration provides healing support for a wide spectrum of health problems - from simple lifestyle associated fatigue and stress to complex, chronic illnesses such as tick borne diseases, autoimmune diseases, mold exposure, and cancer. IV therapy is also a great option for those looking to focus on preventative care and biohacking optimal health. So, whether you are dealing with a current health problem or taking initiative to protect and maintain optimal health through aging and lifestyle, we invite you to work with our team to develop a custom treatment plan that best fits your specific health needs.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE IV MENU

At the UltraWellness Center we use a patient-centered approach to prescribing IV therapy. Our Functional Medicine team works together with patients to develop a custom treatment plan to address the root cause of disease and support repair, healing and optimal performance.
Tension Ease
Migraines, Menstrual Cramps, Muscle Cramping
Support your neuromusculoskeletal system with the key nutrients required to release tension, ease muscle cramping, and help you quickly feel relaxed and pain-free. Our Tension Ease formulas include therapeutic doses of the “anti-stress mineral” magnesium. Offerings also include important B vitamins and homeopathic options to target the specific root cause of tension.
Neuro Protect
Neuroprotective Therapy
We offer a variety of IV infusions and therapeutic injections to support recovery from neuro-related health problems, as well as preventative/protective care. In our busy modern world it’s increasingly difficult to avoid harmful environmental exposures, stressors from busy lifestyles, and other factors that may limit our optimal health potential. IV therapy is yet another way to aid recovery from and prevent disabling neurological health problems. We offer serial treatments of PolyMVA, NAD, glutathione, phosphatidylcholine, and other nutrients that have been shown to support cognitive health.
Ultra Performance (Athlete’s Fuel)
Training and Sports Recovery, Hydration
Athletes demand high nutrition to achieve optimal performance and full recovery between workouts. Whether you are training for a triathlon or enjoying a weekend of cross country skiing, there are key nutrients that improve the body’s ability to recover fast and optimize performance. Our formulas are safe for young athletes and can be especially helpful during highschool and college athletic seasons. Many athletes choose to work directly with a provider on our team to customize a nutritional therapy plan that matches their specific nutritional needs and training schedule. Key ingredients in these formulas include: glutathione, mixed amino acids, Myer’s cocktail, P5P, MSM, B-complex, and magnesium. A popular formula developed for patients working with us regularly includes glutamine, arginine, and choline, received 2-3x/week pre-workout during high intensity training.
Ultra Nourished Mom
Fertility Prep and Postnatal Support
Whether you are seeking optimal health during conception planning or extra nutrients during the postnatal period, our IV therapy program has offerings to support women during these important stages. IV therapy repletion is a great way to improve the overall health of both mom and fetus. Women typically begin working with a provider 90 days prior to conception, receiving a flood of nourishment to prepare their body for conception and healthy fetal development. A note on safety: All formulas are created safe for breastfeeding mothers. Necessary lab work will be reviewed to ensure formulas are safe and appropriate for individual needs before, during and after pregnancy. .
Ultra Calm
Anxiety and Stress
Healing from chronic illness and getting to the root cause of health issues can be emotionally straining, stressful and full of uncertainties before finding solutions that work best for you. We offer a variety of formulas to support your healing journey, from walk-in calming formulas for relief of stress and anxiety to higher therapeutic dose formulas for chronic problems of nervous system imbalance. Formulas include the important amino acid glycine, which functions as a neurotransmitter to produce a calming effect. Other nutrients that might be added include: magnesium, taurine, and B-complex vitamins.
Ultra Balance
Adrenal Support
Select from our menu of adrenal support formulas that focus on addressing the root cause of hormone disruption. Formulas in this area include pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate (P5P), glutathione, methylcobalamin (Mb12), pantothenic acid (B5) and other nutrients needed to help reset your adrenals and get you back in sync with your healthy day-to-day rhythm. Our custom formulated Myer’s Cocktail also provides support in balancing adrenal gland function
Ultra Rest (Sleep Hygiene 101)
Insomnia, Poor sleep quality
Sleep is absolutely essential for maintenance and repair of the neurological, endocrine, immune, musculoskeletal and digestive systems. Chronic illness, disease, and other health issues take their toll on the body and frequently cause disruptions in healthy sleeping patterns. We offer both walk-in IV infusions and injections to help improve sleep quality and duration, fighting sleep deprivation with deep nutrition. Our formulas are focused on helping you get a full night of sleep to enhance memory and mental clarity, improve athletic performance, boost mood and overall energy, improve immune function, and increase stress tolerance. Nutrients include glycine, magnesium, taurine, methylcobalamin, along with other key players in downregulating and calming the body.
Healthy Skin
Anti-aging and Skin Health
The main function of the skin is to act as a physical, chemical and antimicrobial defense system. Our skin is actually the largest organ of the human body. Healthy, intact skin helps our bodies to retain moisture and provides a protective barrier from physical stress and strain as well as from environmental pathogens. The formulas in this category may help to reestablish a healthy gut-brain-skin connection, prevent signs of aging skin, and improve overall skin health. We use our custom Myer’s cocktail formula, in addition to offering glutathione, vitamin C, biotin, zinc, hydration fluids and other nutrients to leave your skin well nourished and glowing.
Ultra Metabolism
Weight loss, Blood Sugar Balance, Diabetes Support, Metabolic Syndrome
Supporting the body’s metabolic processes is critical to achieving most health goals. Having extra nutrients on board can make reaching these goals a lot easier. Work with our team to create a series of custom formulas to be administered over multiple sessions. Nutrients include MIC, biotin, taurine, trace minerals, glutathione, B-complex, PolyMVA, and alpha lipoic acid (ALA). Biotin is an essential cofactor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions that provides support for healthy glucose metabolism, nerve function, and nail strength. Methionine, Inositol, & Choline (MIC) are a group of lipotropic amino acids that support weight loss and healthy nerve functioning. Taurine is an amino acid that reduces cortisol levels and increases the production of GABA, which is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter—our bodies’ natural “off” switch. Taurine also promotes cardiovascular health, insulin sensitivity, electrolyte balance, hearing function, and immune modulation. With so many nutrients available in this broad category, our providers take the approach to work with you to discover which nutrients best fit your metabolic needs and health goals.
Ultra Immunity
Flu prevention, Allergies, Infection, Detox, Immune Boost, and Immune Protective
Getting additional amounts of the key micronutrients essential for immune health is a great way to boost the body’s innate healing system. Getting adequate amounts of these nutrients from the diet can be a challenge even when we are well. We offer several formulas for both preventative immunity (immune protective) as well as more therapeutic formulas for fast recovery (immune boost). The essential nutrients we work with include vitamin C, zinc, glutathione, B vitamins, vitamins A & D, along with others. Our most popular immune formula is our custom formulated Myers Cocktail with higher doses of vitamin C than other standard Myer’s formulas, for an extra antioxidant-rich recipe!
UltraRecovery
Travel recovery
Travel can be exhausting, especially for new patients who come a long way to visit our clinic in Massachusetts. Our Travel Recovery formula helps support the whole body during times of travel by decreasing unwanted physical and emotional responses to travel stress. Whether you are returning from a long trip, or fly frequently for work, or have a long daily commute this formula may help you to recover quickly and maintain optimal health under a demanding lifestyle.

How is this experience different from receiving an IV in the hospital?

Our IV therapy lounge is created to be a therapeutic, healing space where patients may recline in comfortable chairs and relax while receiving deep nutrition through IV infusions.  While the actual process for getting an IV placed will be the same as in other medical settings, we strive to increase comfort while providing the best care in a safe and calm environment.  In the hospital, patients receive IV therapy from acute necessity for various reasons. However, that does not mean IV therapy is only for those in need of acute care. Concentrated nutrient formulas administered directly into the bloodstream allow us to accelerate wellness for any person. 

Does IV therapy hurt?

Besides a swift pinch felt as the needle enters the vein, your treatment will be painless.  Our patients state they hardly feel any discomfort at all. There are only a few ingredients known to cause some discomfort so when working with these nutrients we add a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, to reduce pain as much as possible.

How do I best prepare for my appointment?

During your initial phone call with us you will receive patient education handouts that go over in detail the best steps to take before coming in for your treatment. In general we ask patients to hydrate well and eat a meal before coming to the clinic. This will make IV insertion easier and pain free.

Are treatments covered by insurance?

Our clinic does not submit to insurance.  Please be aware that payment is expected at the time of service.  If desired, you may choose to directly submit to your insurance after treatment with your records.
