IV Therapy is getting an influx of media coverage, due to celebrities receiving treatments to help get through an illness or for general wellness and disease prevention. Good news! You don’t have to be a celebrity to get this treatment. The doctors at DWC have been providing quality IV care for over a decade. We are well trained and equipped to make a customized IV based on your individual concerns.
A typical IV therapy session is very comfortable – the nutrition is infused through a very small needle, over the course of about an hour*. You can take a nap or read a magazine/book while you wait in a quiet and relaxing room.
Nutritional IV therapy is a customized mixture of nutrients; usually vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, and other trace minerals in a sterile water base. These treatments have been used for decades for a number of specific purposes. Because the nutrients are infused directly into the body, the absorption rate is much higher. You can think of the cells being fed nutrients they most need, without having to worry about going through the digestive system.
Most commonly, we use Vitamin C IV therapy to treat a cold or flu – this is one of the fastest and most effective ways to combat an illness. It is also great for athletes before/after a competition, with additional electrolytes to speed up the training or race recovery. Benefits of pre/post surgery IV therapy include faster healing time and improved scarring.
Life in the desert makes it easy to get dehydrated. In addition to the nutrients, you will get the benefit of direct intravascular hydration. This is a quick way to get your body hydrated and performing better. It is perfect for people who need to feel better, fast!

With our modern fast paced way of life, daily stress and declining quality of food, it is often hard to get the nutrients needed to maintain optimal health. Quick injections of customized nutrients allow for an efficient way to obtain what we’re missing. The injections are used to support weight loss, chronic disease or just for a boost of energy. Samples of what is available: B12, B-complex, folate, MIC (weight loss boosting injection).
B-12 injection-Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that keeps nerves and red blood cells healthy. Several important reactions in the body require B12 to work properly. It is possible for the body to develop a vitaminB12 deficiency from aging, stomach surgeries or digestive disease. Vitamin B12 helps with stress, sleep, weight loss, prevents cancer and cardiovascular disease. We use the active form of the vitamin known as methylcobalamin.
B-Plus Injection-You are one injection away from a more healthy stress response and a good boost of energy Contains: (B12)-cobalamin & B-complex-which contains thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), Pyridoxine (B6), Dexpanthecol (B5) and niacinamide (B3). Each B vitamin is important for everything from metabolism, wound healing, heart health and mood balancing.
Vitamin D-A vital fat soluble vitamin that despite the sunny conditions in Arizona, many people are deficient. Vitamin D is important for mood, energy, thyroid function, intestinal health and bone. If not corrected it can lead to osteoporosis. A simple blood test can be performed to determine if you are deficient.
Detox Shot: Contains a powerful detoxifier and antioxidant Glutathione. It is made in the body and used in every cell. Glutathione has many benefits including anti-oxidant effects and environmental toxicity support as part of a detoxification protocol. Although oral doses are not well absorbed, you can benefit from intramuscular glutathione injection. It is particularly helpful for neuropathy and immune support as well.
“Slim Shot”:Metabolic Boost-The best all around injection offered at Desert Wellness Center. Not only is it powerful for boosting metabolism but the nutrients are also potent liver detoxifiers. They can help reduce fat deposited in the liver which aids in better elimination of dietary and stored fat in combination with a weight loss program. Ideal for anyone looking to lose weight, gain energy, or recover/prevent a “hangover”. The injection include Cobalamin(B12), thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), pyridoxine (B6), Dexpanthenol (B5) and niacinamide (B3) in addition to L-Carnitine, methionine, inositol and choline (MIC).
Poly MVA– a uniquely-formulated blend of the mineral palladium bonded to alpha-lipoic acid, Vitamins B1, B2 and B12, formyl-methionine, N-acetyl cysteine, plus trace amounts of molybdenum, rhodium, and ruthenium. This formulation is designed to provide energy for compromised body systems by changing the electrical potential of human cells and facilitating normal
metabolism within the cell. Poly MVA assists in preventing cell damage, aids in oxygenation of cells and tissues, helps the body to produce energy, supports the liver in removing harmful substances from the body, works as a powerful antioxidant and healthy nerve and neurotransmitter function. This as an injection is particularly helpful for neuropathy.
