What to Expect
When meeting with Dr. Vance, it's important to provide her with detailed information about your current diet and ailments. This will allow Dr. Vance to formulate the best possible plan to fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget.
Dr. Vance will also recommend regular exercise, which is a key component to any nutritional counseling session. Like your food selection, your style and amount of exercise will be personalized to suit your needs.
A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish your body.
There are instances though, when the body has trouble obtaining these nutrients through natural digestive functions. Conditions such as stress, a medical illness, or food intolerances can inhibit the absorption of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, or biotin.
In these cases, injecting those nutrients directly into the blood stream may be the best option to ensure that your body is getting what it needs. This is the goal of IV nutritional therapy.

This substance improves liver and brain functions, leading to improved memory while helping to lower the risk of conditions such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, neuropathy, and liver disease.
This treatment helps remove heavy metals from the blood stream like iron, lead, and calcium to reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, senility, and certain types of cancer.

Alpha Lipoic Acid
