IV Therapy in New England

Intravenous therapy (IV therapy) has been offered at Greenhouse Natural Medicine since it opened in 2007. Our intravenous suite is a comfortable, home-like environment staffed by Dr. Julia Greenspan. It’s a comfortable, relaxed, environment. We strive to make it feel like your own living room.

Other services offered are first dosing of antibiotics, bandage changes for PICC lines, and PORT access. We function as an IV suite to current patients of the practice. We do accept referrals for intravenous nutrient therapy with a formal script from the current medical provider and an initial meeting with our staff to assess your needs.

Common IV’s available include:

  • Heavy Metal Chelation to remove deposited heavy metals.  Metals like Lead and Mercury are ingested with food, water, and dust particles in the air. Once the metals enter the body they are stored in tissue, especially fats cells, neurological and muscle tissue. Removal of the metals benefits the immune system, improves energy levels, reduces fatty plaques that build in arteries, and allow the body processes to work more efficiently. The patient is monitored and going under chelation with medical supervision. Please do not attempt to buy products like DMSA, EDTA, or other chelating agents without working with a trained medical professional.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid is used to improve mitochondrial function to improve cellular energy in the body.  This can help support the body with metabolic issues like diabetes, inflammatory diseases of the liver, improving detoxification, neurologic diseases, and chronic fatigue
  • Glutathione is created by the liver and given in IV form to enhance detoxification and immunity as a powerful antioxidant. Over time with repeated exposure to toxins and illness the body’s ability to make this at healthy levels declines. the most effective way to ingest glutathione is through intravenous route or nebulized into the lungs.
  • Meyers Cocktail is a vitamin combination helpful with immune enhancement with common acute viral infections like the flu or mononucleosis. It is also helpful for vitamin replacement with gastrointestinal disorders like IBS, gluten intolerance and parasite infection. It can be an excellent way to replace nutrients while in recovery or build up vitamin stores.
  • Fluid Replacement is offered as a supportive therapy when there is severe dehydration during gastrointestinal illnesses leading to loss of fluids such as stomach flu, gastroparesis, and hyperemesis gravidarum with pregnancy. We also offer parenteral nutrient replacement with IV proteins and electrolytes for instances when needed in acute crisis with pancreatitis, cancer, and other disease states when appropriate. This is typically meant as a short-term therapy until a physical cause is corrected with other medical interventions or with natural healing time.
  • B12 Shots dosed in-house or by prescription for home use for those with a deficiency as needed. These are intramuscular shots.
