Why would I need Vitamin B shots?
The number one reason why people are deficient in B vitamins is STRESS (stress burns through vitamins like having your foot on the accelerator). The second reason is poor digestion and the third is external stimuli such as smoking, alcohol or medication.
Vitamin shots are the best way to restore B vitamins back to your body. You can only absorb 30-40% of the nutrients you digest normally. But with Vitamin B injections, your body can absorb 90-95% because you totally bypass the digestive system.
Why would I want a Vitamin C IV?
Our bodies do not make vitamin C, so we must either eat it or take a supplement. Unfortunately vitamin C can be hard on many people’s stomach and intestines, even abrasive. So, they have a tendency to avoid it. However, vitamin C is a great immune booster, eliminates shingles, improves wound healing, increases antioxidant function, improves cardiac health, prevents degenerative diseases and can help improve your mood. By taking vitamin C by IV, you can get a much greater volume and superior absorption by totally bypassing the digestion system.
How is sinus therapy different than surgery?
Surgery is almost always attempting to move a tissue or remove some tissue. However, rarely is a deviated septum the root of the cause. Most try to address a structural abnormality for their sinus infections or problem, when actually most sinus problems are caused by tissue dysfunction or external allergy causing a thickening of the mucus membrane. To improve the sinus’s membrane you have to address the underlying outward cause. Sinus therapy does this without surgery or long-term medications.

What is HCG and what does it do?
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone naturally produced by the body. During pregnancy the levels increase to break down fat on the mother’s body, converting the fat into energy for both mother and baby.
