IV Vitamin Therapy
IV Vitamin Therapy Treatment in NYC
Look, Feel & Perform Better with Our IV Vitamin Treatment
IV vitamin therapy can be used both proactively to maintain optimum wellness and to treat acute and chronic health conditions.
It is a well-known fact that vitamins are critical for good health. While some foods are fortified with vitamins, many of us get nutrients from foods that have been extensively processed, which diminishes the effectiveness of the vitamins and minerals they contained. To help your body combat infections and correct immune imbalances, Mitchell Medical Group offers vitamin injections as a means of directly infusing your body with essential nutrients.
The Most Efficient & Effective Way to Deliver Nutrients to Your Body
IV Therapy treatments can help boost your immune system, especially if you’re run down, stressed out or generally feel exhausted and in need of a pick-me-up. Many patients have found it highly effective in reducing a variety of troubling symptoms including fatigue, headaches, muscle, pain brain fog, fibromyalgia and much more.
What Makes Our IV Vitamin Therapy Better?
Just because a spa advertises an IV Vitamin drip, that does not mean that they can provide the same beneficial effects as IV Vitamin Therapy from Mitchell Medical Group. There are a few things that really differentiate our IV vitamin therapy from other places.

- We don’t offer a 1 size fits all solution – our vitamin therapy is targeted and personalized to the unique needs of each patient
- We make sure that the vitamins utilized in the therapy are actually beneficial to the patient and their unique needs and health issues
- All patients must have an initial consultation with one of our doctors so we can ensure you get the vitamins you need
Our IV vitamin therapy starts at $350 per treatment.
The Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy

Why IV Vitamin Therapy Over Oral Vitamins
With IV Vitamin Therapy, you get the benefit of 100% absorption, allowing these nutrients to be immediately available for cellular use. IV Vitamin Therapy can also safely deliver higher doses of vitamins that would not be tolerated if taken orally. When it comes to preventing illness, increasing energy, and slowing the effects of aging, IV Vitamin Therapy from Mitchell Medical Group will give your immune system the fuel it needs to maximize your health.
One of the most powerfully effective treatments that we have found for treating chronic illnesses like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia is the use of IV vitamin therapy.
The difference between oral vitamins and injected vitamins has to do with the gut’s ability to absorb the vitamins. Oral vitamins are swallowed and end up in the stomach, where the stomach’s acid has to do some heavy work to break down the vitamin pills and then can start to slowly absorb the nutrients. In many cases, the oral vitamins swallowed are only absorbed 30%; this can be even lower in patients taking acid blockers or who have digestive problems.
What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
IV Vitamin Therapy is a method of infusing vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants directly into your body. The difference between oral vitamins and injected vitamins has to do with the gut’s ability to absorb the vitamins. The first IV vitamin drips were developed and administered by Dr. John Myers in the 1970s.
While you’re undergoing an IV vitamin drip, your body is receiving a higher concentration of the vitamins themselves. A vitamin that’s taken by mouth gets broken down in the stomach and digestive tract, and is limited on how much can be absorbed (50 percent) – this can be even lower in patients taking acid blockers or who have digestive problems. In contrast, when the vitamin is given through an IV (intravenously), it’s absorbed in a much higher percentage (90 percent) because it goes right into the body without the need for digestive help.
What’s In Our IV Vitamin Drip?
Our expert medical team has perfected our IV Vitamin Therapy by following the protocols of Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, the world-renowned chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia expert. Our vitamin injections incorporate key vitamins that improve the immune system, making it an ideal therapy for people with chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. Essentially the IV therapies (also known as Myer’s cocktails) dramatically jump-start the body’s systems which can markedly shorten the time it takes to begin feeling better.
Our IV Vitamin Therapy Includes the Following Vitamins:
The ingredients for the therapy are adjusted specifically to match each patient’s unique needs. Two of the most popular vitamin injections are Vitamin B12 (an important component of cell reproduction, blood formation, and protein or tissue synthesis) and Lipotropic injections (to help encourage weight loss).
How Does IV Vitamin Therapy Help Chronic Illnesses?
There are many factors at play in our bodies when looking to fight and manage chronic disease. The use of IV vitamin therapies may help you by directly introducing needed nutrients into the body’s circulation, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract, so you can benefit from their full function in addressing your disease.
Whether your body needs liver function support, increased energy or metabolism, aid with fighting off both viral and bacterial infection, replenishment of needed nutrients, advancement due to immune suppression, or addressing prolonged joint pain and inflammation, we can create a customized IV vitamin “cocktail” to fit your unique needs and help you recover from your chronic illness.
When you suffer from a chronic illness like chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, less energy is produced in central regions of the body, especially muscle tissue. In fact, the blood flow is actually shut down to those regions which then become starved for nutrients and loaded with toxins. This leaves your body nutritionally deficient. High-dose intravenous injections of vitamins force the blood vessels open in those closed-down areas, flooding them with nutrients and washing away the toxins.
At Mitchell Medical Group, IV vitamin therapy is just one facet of our holistic treatments that can help speed your body’s natural healing ability.

Why Do We Need Vitamin Supplements at All?
We all know that vitamins are critical for good health. In vitamin deficient countries – even our own – a lack of key vitamins can lead to bone loss or fractures, chronic infections, and even neurologic symptoms. But with the fortification of foods with vitamins, true vitamin deficiencies are rare. Does this mean that we still don’t need extra vitamin supplementation?
This is where it gets tricky: in the perfect world with the perfect body and immune system, a person would only need the natural fruits and vegetables that nature designed for us – I sometimes refer to this as the Biblical diet that Adam and Eve had in the Garden of Eden.
But in our real world, most of us have been at the disadvantage of getting nutrients that have been extensively processed and so are devoid of the full array of vitamins and minerals.
As a result, when we develop illnesses our body’s immune system isn’t at full capacity to combat infections or correct immune imbalances.
Eating foods that contain high doses of natural vitamins and minerals is a great start, but ingested vitamins must go through the harsh environment of the digestive tract, which breaks them down and decreases their absorption rate to only 30%. This percentage rate can be even less if you are taking acid blockers or have digestive problems.
The body depends on receiving vitamins and minerals from the diet because it cannot make them itself. IV vitamin therapy helps if your body is low in vitamins and minerals due to not consuming the proper foods or your body is unable to metabolize them correctly.
