IV Therapy

IV Therapy Specialist
Intravenous (IV) therapy is often associated with procedures that only take place when you’re in the hospital. However, outpatient IV therapy using nutrients, antioxidants, and ozone is an effective way to boost energy, promote wellness, and prevent illness. Dr. Lynne R. Mielke and Sandi Kreizenbeck, DNP, at Optimal Health Spectrums in Pleasanton, California, have extensive experience providing IV therapy. Contact the office to learn about the diverse uses of IV therapy and how individualized treatment can improve your health.

IV Therapy Q & A

Optimal Health Spectrums

What nutrients are delivered intravenously?

There are two important benefits of IV nutrient therapy. First, getting nutrients delivered directly into the bloodstream lets you get a larger dose, because there are limits to the amount of oral nutrients absorbed through the normal digestive process. Second, nutrient delivery is more rapid and effective via the bloodstream compared to going through the digestive tract.

After we determine your exact needs, the nutrients are mixed together and administered all at once through an IV while you’re in the office. Although every IV mix is individualized, nutrients commonly used include:

  • B vitamins for energy
  • Vitamins C, D, and E for the immune system
  • Folinic acid for brain function
  • Minerals such as magnesium, zinc, and selenium for proper cellular function
  • Critical antioxidants and amino acids such as glutathione and phosphatidylcholine for detoxification and cellular rejuvenation

Dr. Mielke and Nurse Practitioner Sandi also administer other essential substances through IV therapy.

What health benefits are provided by IV nutrition therapy?

Nutrient therapy is a fast way to replenish vitamins and minerals, but administering high doses of IV nutrition therapy also helps you:

  • Prevent or recover from illnesses
  • Speed recovery from surgery
  • Improve wound healing
  • Boost immune function
  • Eliminate fatigue
  • Improve skin conditions such as eczema and acne
  • Improve health conditions:
    • Gastrointestinal disorders
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Viral infections
    • Chronic infections such as Lyme disease
    • Asthma
    • Cancer

What is IV ozone therapy?

Ozone consists entirely of activated oxygen. In your body, oxygen produces energy, so ozone therapy boosts that process. Ozone therapy also helps to kill bacteria and viruses, improves healing of wounds, stimulates the production of antioxidants, and improves circulation.

Many different health conditions may benefit from ozone therapy:

  • Lyme disease
  • Infections
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Fatigue

What is IV chelation therapy?

Chelation therapy is used to remove highly-toxic heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and arsenic from your body. Their impact on your health depends on the amount in your body. Toxic metal buildup may lead to generic chronic fatigue or serious problems, including brain and nerve damage, intellectual disability and developmental disorders, and disease in organs throughout your body.

Medications administered during IV chelation therapy bind together with heavy metals. Once the medication and heavy metal form a tight complex, they’re eliminated from the body through urine or stool.
