Why IV Therapy at Vitality is Unique, Including 2 Free Therapies with Each IV
IV Therapy is one of my favorite treatments for patients with chronic illness and for people who just want to optimize or maintain their health. It is a quick therapy that delivers powerful vitamins, antioxidants and minerals directly into your blood stream, bypassing the digestive tract, so 100% of what is infused is absorbed and utilized.

There are many pop-up IV therapy places around town, and the question that I get the most frequently is, “How are Vitality’s IVs different?” At Vitality, we can evaluate the patient’s clinical symptoms and/or through blood testing (micronutrient testing) to determine exactly what the patient needs. Below are some of the key differences between our IVs and IVs received from facilities without an in-house medical doctor.
Vitality IVs are customized for your condition by a Medical Doctor
Most patients who receive IV therapy at Vitality are current patients, so Dr. White and practitioners know their history and tailor the IV to their needs, whether it is for repleting nutrients, supporting mitochondria (fatigue), detoxifying toxins or killing off harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites. We also have people who come to Vitality specifically for IV therapy. These patients are assessed by Dr. White, blood tests are drawn or evaluated (if they have previous test results) and IVs are formulated based on the recommendations from the Vitality practitioners.
Administered by a Registered Nurse (RN)
At Vitality, we have highly trained RNs who mix our IV bags and administer the IV to the patient. An RN is always within distance to keep a close eye on patients. A medical doctor, physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner is in the facility should a questions arise.
We use high doses of Vitamin C
Most IV therapy places offer small doses of Vitamin C, between 1-2 grams. At Vitality, we know the importance of higher doses of Vitamin C for immune and antioxidant support. Most of our IVs (depending on your medical history) have 10-15 grams of IV Vitamin C.
Poly MVA is not offered many places in Nashville, but we have it! This is one of my favorite IVs and It has many of the benefits of NAD+ without the infusion wait time. Poly MVA binds alpha-lipoic acid to the mineral palladium with B1, B12, minerals, molybdenum ruthenium and the amino acid forml-methionine. Like NAD+, Poly MVA is a major mitochondrial support, providing healthy cellular metabolism and energy to the body. Unlike an NAD+ infusion, which can take hours, Poly MVA can be infused in 20-30 minutes.
Methylene Blue is a dye that can be used to treat cyanide poisoning and methemoglobinemia. Over the years we have found it to be an excellent mitochondrial support and can be used to provide energy, mental clarity and focus. It also has antimicrobial activity against certain viruses and bacteria, including Borrelia species, which cause Lyme disease and Bartonella, a coinfection that often accompanies Lyme disease. It has also been shown to stabilize brain plaques and support the brain in people with dementia.
Ozone, or O3 gas, is our newest IV addition. Ozone is a powerful anti-inflammatory IV as well as an antimicrobial IV. It can help eradicate unwanted viruses, parasites, bacteria, mold and yeast. We offer ozone therapy via the Zotzmann machine, which delivers ozone under hyperbaric pressures. This allows more oxygen delivery to your system than regular IV ozone therapies. Under a closed system, we remove blood from your body, mix it with gas and then infuse it back into your body. This can be done one (one pass) to ten (ten pass) times. We also offer Direct Intravenous (DIV) ozone. This is where ozone has is delivered directly into the blood stream very slowly by a medical doctor.
BEMER therapy (Complimentary with each IV)
BEMER technology uses pulsed electromagnic frequencies to increase circulation through the microvasculature, or small capillaries in your body. It improves nutrient and oxygen delivery to your cells while helping your body remove toxic waste products. When donr prior to the IV therapy, it opens up circulation and prepares the body for the nutrients in the IV. Read more about BEMER therapy here.
Braintap (Complimentary with each IV)
Braintap combines technologies of light and sound (bineural beats and isochronic tones) to put your body into the parasymptahetic “rest of digest’ state. This full body relaxation allows for greater healing and great absorption of nutrients obtained during the IV. One session lasts 8-12 minutes and is done during the IV treatment.
