Intravenous therapy (IV therapy) has been offered at Greenhouse Natural Medicine since it opened in 2007. Our intravenous suite is a comfortable, home-like environment staffed by Dr. Julia Greenspan. It’s a comfortable, relaxed, environment. We strive to make it feel like your own living room.
Other services offered are first dosing of antibiotics, bandage changes for PICC lines, and PORT access. We function as an IV suite to current patients of the practice. We do accept referrals for intravenous nutrient therapy with a formal script from the current medical provider and an initial meeting with our staff to assess your needs.
Meyers Cocktail is a vitamin combination helpful with immune enhancement with common acute viral infections like the flu or mononucleosis. It is also helpful for vitamin replacement with gastrointestinal disorders like IBS, gluten intolerance and parasite infection. It can be an excellent way to replace nutrients while in recovery or build up vitamin stores.
Fluid Replacement is offered as a supportive therapy when there is severe dehydration during gastrointestinal illnesses leading to loss of fluids such as stomach flu, gastroparesis, and hyperemesis gravidarum with pregnancy. We also offer parenteral nutrient replacement with IV proteins and electrolytes for instances when needed in acute crisis with pancreatitis, cancer, and other disease states when appropriate. This is typically meant as a short-term therapy until a physical cause is corrected with other medical interventions or with natural healing time.
