Take a look at this tutorial video detailing the proper procedure for administering an intra-muscular (IM) injection. https://youtu.be/fMEZdNodGM0

Some of our products are provided in powdered form along with a separate vial of sterile water. Please refer to the instructions provided in the prescription for precise guidance. Typically, you'll withdraw several milliliters of sterile water from its vial and inject it into the powdered vial. The powder will dissolve rapidly. Gently agitate the vial a few times to ensure complete dissolution of the powder, then wait at least 10 minutes before administering the injection.

Most products require refrigeration.

IM (Intra-Muscular) injections involve injecting medication directly into the muscle tissue. Select a well-muscled area such as the thigh, buttocks, or deltoids (shoulders) for the injection. These injections typically require longer needles to penetrate the muscle tissue effectively.

SQ (Subcutaneous) injections involve injecting medication just beneath the skin, into the fatty layer. Locate a fatty area or loose skin, usually around the stomach region, for the injection. These injections typically utilize smaller needles.

Before administering the injection, ensure thorough cleansing of both the skin area slated for injection and the top of the vial from which you'll be drawing the medication.

IV Therapy is a method of administering vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream through an IV line to maximize potency and provide notable results. With IV therapy you are able to receive much higher quantities of nutrients than would be possible via oral supplements or injections. The resulting benefits include improved energy, increased metabolism, mental clarity, immune support and much more.

After a brief consultation with our doctor, IV Nutrient treatments are given in our IV lounge located at our Birmingham location. The nutrients are administered intravenously under a doctor’s supervision. The treatment can last from 30 to 70 minutes depending on the amount of nutrients needed and your own physiology. During this time there is little discomfort and you can immediately resume your normal activities as soon as the treatment is completed.

Typically, yes. IV Infusion Therapy and Nutrient Injections, when administered responsibly, can be beneficial to most people. They work as great tools to prevent illness and support optimal health and wellness. Nutrient therapy can also be used for performance enhancement and recovery for athletes.

Many of our clients are extremely healthy and use nutrient therapy to assist them in achieving their personal goals and feeling their best.

The injection site may experience inflammation, a common side effect that usually subsides within the day. Welts are frequently observed. It's important to rotate injection sites to prevent scarring in one area.

Glutathione and NAD+ have been reported to enhance post-viral symptom recovery. Administering these medications via injection can expedite your return to baseline health.

Additionally, Glutathione possesses antioxidative properties that can bolster your immune system, potentially reducing susceptibility to viral infections.

Excessive doses may induce pancreatitis, signaled by symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and intense abdominal pain, warranting immediate medical attention and discontinuation of medications.

There's a risk of hypoglycemia; hence, it's advisable to refrain from other diabetic medications and excessive alcohol consumption.

Semaglutide, while aiding in fat loss, may also contribute to muscle loss. It's crucial to maintain a high protein intake, especially when reducing food consumption. Additionally, sustaining a regular workout routine involving both weight training and cardiovascular exercises is essential. Loss of muscle mass can dampen basal metabolism, potentially impacting overall health negatively.

The most prevalent side effect resembles a histamine-like reaction, presenting as lightheadedness, palpitations, flushing, and nausea. Typically, this is self-limiting and resolves shortly on its own.

When consuming supplements orally, the body can only tolerate small doses and much of the nutrient content is lost in elimination. Additionally, many over the counter supplements contain fillers and other contaminants that are difficult for your body to digest.

Bypassing the gastrointestinal route, Nutrient Injections and IV Therapy allow for much better absorption and use of nutrients.

Many people benefit from taking high quality oral supplements in addition to other forms of nutrient therapy like injections and IV Therapy.

Nutrient injections are available at our Birmingham office without an appointment. Shots are administered by one of our health professionals. They take approximately five minutes and do not require a consultation, though you always have the option of speaking with our Doctor to learn more about our nutrients and which are most appropriate for you.

Since the advent of IV Nutrient Therapy in the 1950s it has become widely used for a number of purposes including immune support for colds, flus, and other illnesses; energy production and chronic fatigue; performance boosting for athletes; anti-aging and optimal wellness; and much more.

Intravenous Therapy is a safe method that allows for delivery of larger doses of essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids on the cellular level. It provides the maximum amount of nourishment to your body for improved health and well being. It is comparable to taking a month’s worth of vitamins in 30 minutes.

The “Meyer’s Cocktail” originated with Dr. John Meyer in Baltimore, Maryland in the late 1950s. It was the first time vitamins and minerals were administered intravenously to treat chronic disease. The exact formulation used by Dr. Meyer for his original IV nutrient treatment is unknown but IV Nutrient Therapy has developed and grown since that time. Today, there are many high quality IV nutrient formulations available for a range of purposes that span well beyond treating chronic disease.

IV Nutrient Therapy is utilized in spa settings for its anti-aging benefits, by professional athletes for improved athletic performance and recovery, and for those in pursuit of optimal health and wellness.

Alcohol consumption should be kept to a minimum as larger doses can be harmful to health.

Semaglutide, in particular, is sensitive to alcohol intake, often leading to faster intoxication and alcohol aversions. Serious complications, such as hypoglycemia and pancreatitis, may arise (both Semaglutide and alcohol can independently cause these issues, and their combination heightens the risk). If feasible, it's advisable to abstain from alcohol while taking Semaglutide.

We provide treatment exclusively to individuals aged 18 and above. Additionally, we do not offer treatment to individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

For hormone replacement therapy, eligibility is determined based on a comprehensive medical history assessment.

Individuals with sulfa allergies should exercise caution and consider avoiding glutathione injections.

If any allergic reactions occur—manifesting as symptoms such as flushing, hives, nausea/vomiting, lightheadedness, swelling, or throat itchiness—it's imperative to discontinue the treatment. If possible, promptly take Benadryl and seek immediate medical assistance from your nearest healthcare provider.
