Intravenous Nutrition (IV Nutrition)

The foundation of better health is better nutrition. Your body’s cells depend upon nutrients to fuel their energy producing biochemistry. Due to a variety of factors, including poor dietary choices or a nutrient-depleted food supply, it is likely those important nutrients are not reaching your cells properly.

More often, hidden malabsorption of nutrients is the culprit. This can be caused by: food sensitivities, gluten intolerance, stomach acid imbalance, unfriendly gut flora, and stress-induced bowel irritability. These issues can inflame your digestive tract and interfere with the proper absorption of key nutrients.

The Riordan Clinic has pioneered the use of intravenous nutrients for the past 35 years. IV Nutrition is the fastest way available to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves. The Riordan Clinic uses several IV protocols, most notably intravenous vitamin C (IVC) and IV Essentials.

IV Essentials, known clinically as the “mini Myers”, was first developed in the 1970s by physician John Myers, M.D., in Baltimore. The “essentials” formulation contains a special blend of vitamin C, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B complex, magnesium, and calcium. IV Essentials serves as the foundation for our IV Nutrition protocol.

Additional benefits can be achieved by adding higher amounts of key nutrients to the essentials formulation to address your specific needs. Your Riordan Clinic doctor will use the results of your baseline assessment to determine which IV Nutrition protocol can benefit you the most.

IV Nutrition Protocols Key Nutrients Added Functional Results
IV Energy Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium Better adrenal function / less fatigue
IV Immunity Vitamin C additional 10,000 mg Improved resistance to infections
IV Vision Selenium Better retinal health / visual acuity
IV Calm Calcium Resilience to stress / more relaxed
IV Detox Glutathione Enhanced phase-2 liver detox pathway
IV Skin-care Zinc Smoother, softer skin / better blood flow

A typical IV Nutrition procedure takes approximately 20 minutes to one hour to administer depending on type of IV required.

Patient Testimonial

My experience with the mini-Myers has been nothing less than amazing! The total IV time is 25-30 minutes and is easy to have done. My energy is much improved and the terrible sores on my arms are healing very quickly. Also, my skin tone is much improved. Thank you so much!” -Maggie
