The Tigard Holistic Health Clinic offers numerous IV therapy treatments. We use IV treatments to address cancer, malnutrition, or nutritional deficiency, infections like Lyme and or Hepatitis and to support the body in various detoxification treatments. We monitor our patient’s kidney and liver function closely to ensure the safety of this valuable therapy.
What is IV therapy used for?
IV therapy is a way to introduce nutrients and therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream. It can be used to correct deficiencies, enhance immune function, increase energy and assist in maintaining health. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antibiotics, and other natural agents can be administered in a pleasant relaxing atmosphere while a person reads, listens to music, or chats with other patients. IV therapy is often used to support a person with chronic or severe illness, who is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments. It is also used as a part of our cleansing programs, to optimize nutrients essential for detoxification.
Dr. Stacey Raffety has been instrumental in the educational process of teaching Naturopathic doctors in this valuable therapy. She taught IV therapy for 5 years through Professional IV Seminars. In addition she created and established an IV course at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine. She is a co-author of the text book; Parental Micronutrient Therapy.
