Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function. By directly administering nutrients to the body higher than normal blood levels can be achieved. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.
Scientific research has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition. A few of the conditions that may be helped using IV nutrition techniques include hypertension, COPD, depression, anxiety, asthma, headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, hepatitis, stroke rehabilitation, infections (viral and bacterial) and even quitting smoking.
All of the intravenous protocols used at Core Medical Group have been thoroughly researched and have been shown to be effective in the treatment of certain conditions. By practicing this type of evidence-based medicine we can custom tailor our IV infusions to ensure maximal effectiveness combined with minimal side effects.
CORE IV Cocktail Menu
Core Platinum Cocktail
Our most popular IV Nutrient Therapy. Created by Dr. Michael Schmidt, Core Platinum Cocktail (similar but not identical to the Myers Cocktail developed by Dr. John Myers) is a proprietary combination of magnesium, calcium, Super – B complex, glutathione, zinc and vitamin C. Core Platinum is a 30 minute therapy designed to significantly improve energy levels and cell function. When energy levels are high and cells can function at their best, patients are more likely to recover from acute and chronic conditions. Patients report high levels of energy, mental clarity and improved sleep. This energy boost and overall sense of well-being can last for several days or weeks and can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life. Core Platinum can help strengthen the immune system as well, allowing patients who constantly get sick to effectively fight off viral or bacterial illnesses. Our Platinum therapy has been found to be a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of clinical conditions such as:
- Chronic Pain
- Loss of Appetite
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Acute Muscle Spasms
- Boosts the Immune System
- Rapid Recovery Assistance
- Sleep Abnormalities
- Hydration Deficiencies
Peak Performance Cocktail
Perfect for our ultra-active patients in need of immediate recovery or an endurance boost for competitive activities. Peak Performance Cocktail contains all the nutrients in our Platinum Cocktail, as well as chromium, folic acid, vitamin D, and taurine. A favorite of cyclists, marathon/long distance runners, mixed-martial artists, and our Cross-Fitters.
Rapid Rejuvenation Cocktail
Receive instant hydration and a high concentration blast of Super B-Complex vitamins from our Rapid Rejuvenation drip. Great for a mid-day energy boost that can linger for days.
Though CORE Medical group does not advocate high consumption of alcohol, our Hangover Blaster is perhaps the only proven remedy for immediate relief after a long night of over-indulgence. Providing rapid hydration and immediate replenishment of electrolytes through the bloodstream is typically enough to eliminate hangover symptoms. In severe cases, our physician may prescribe both anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory medications to be included in our standard IV Hangover Blaster therapy.
