IV Therapies

IV Therapies

Super-charged, nutritionally-based medicine for the 21st Century!

At Whole Family Healthcare we strongly believe that Health and Beauty truly start from the inside out! Over the years we have identified that the foundation for this philosophy originates from optimal nutrition, diet, supplements and nutritionally-based IV therapies.

IV nutrient and antioxidant based therapies are now riding a wave of popularity and acceptance as advances in ease of formulation, and pricing have made them available to mainstream America. Whole Family Healthcare offers one of the widest arrays of these highly advanced, nutrient-based IV therapy programs in the country.

Founder of Whole Family Healthcare’s IV program, Dr. Mueller is one of the most experienced integrative physicians in central Florida. Over the past 18 years he has created one of the most extensive and successful, nutrient and hydration-based IV therapy programs in industry. His relationship with Whole Family Healthcare, one of the most respected integrative clinics in Central Florida, has allowed him to expand his program even further, now making his proprietary, super-charged infusions available to virtually everyone.

From optimized hydration to maximizing function, IV therapies with their 100 % absorption of pharmaceutical grade, high potency nutrients super-charge our body’s ability to enhance performance, fight aging, improve health, reduce pain, restore deficient nutrients and maximize quality of life.

Whole Family’s “Whole patient IV therapy provides energizing, 30-60 minute IV (intravenous) infusions with a focus on hydration and anti-oxidants to restore health, energy, vitality and homeostasis. Our team of professionals can offer IV’s for quick recovery from food poisoning, general exhaustion, fatigue, overwork, illness, hangover, jet lag, and help strengthen your immune system and body for the stresses of airline travel and surgery!

One of the main advantages of IV administration of fluids and nutrients is the 100% absorption rate proven in hospital ER’s and in widespread clinical practice. We use only pharmaceutical-grade fluids and nutrients that replenish and optimize minerals, antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids and electrolytes.

Our mission is to truly improve your underlying health by correcting the underlying imbalances in dehydration and nutrient deficiencies, leaving you feeling restored to superb vitality and wellness. Below is a sample menu of our most popular IV cocktails:

Immune Augmentation

This IV contains high doses of vitamin C, along with an unmatched proprietary blend of B-complex vitamins, B-12, magnesium and trace minerals to help you regain health, energy and vitality. Great for colds, flus, jet lag, chronic fatigue, cancer patients, athletics and much more!

Nutritional Therapy

Excellent IV with high doses of vitamin C, B-complex, B-12, minerals such as zinc for the immune system. Great for general infirmity, maintenance to keep our bodies in nutritional balance, the elderly, those with poor oral intake or intestinal problems, or simply a pick-me-up after a long journey (jet lag), illness, or a hangover.

Anti-Aging Trifecta

Beauty begins from the inside out! Our anti-aging formula consists of three separate IV’s.

Detox Pro provides high doses of pharmaceutical grade glutathione which is a master antioxidant produced naturally in our bodies. Glutathione provided intravenously can provide rapid immune boosting, cellular energy and is a critical detoxifying enzyme, super-charging the liver’s ability to rid the body of hundreds of toxins, leaving you feeling refreshed, energized and reinvigorated. Especially good for those who are constantly sick and those with chronically weak immune systems, colds, flus, hangovers,  and more.

Utilizing the latest research in brain nutrients, our “brain-booster” IV therapy consists of two critical IV’s. The first contains curcumin and other anti-inflammatories known to inhibit brain inflammation and in pre-clinical trials, reduced or prevented the plaques which can contribute to Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The second IV contains a proprietary blend of nutrients to help improve microcirculation in the brain and support overall brain health..

  • Anti-nausea (Zofran)
  • Anti-inflammatory/pain relief (Toradol)
  • Anti-upset stomach/nausea: Pepcid
  • DMSO- acute pain, swelling
  • B-12 (included in some IV’s)
  • B-complex (included in some IV’s)

What are some of the most common benefits from IV therapies?

Our IV’s have proven extremely effective at improving energy and reducing fatigue. Sleep is often significantly improved. We often see a dramatic improvement in the ability to carry out activities of daily living, improved mood, and improved cognitive abilities.

Through a combination of IV’s, specific supplements and acupuncture, we have been able to significantly decrease and at times completely resolve many painful conditions, with particular success at alleviating cancer-related pain including pain from metastases or spread of cancer to the bone. And we can generally accomplish this without the need for potentially harmful or addictive medications!

What are the advantages of intravenous vs. oral nutritional supplementation

For immune-boosting and nutrient repletion in patients challenged with cancer we offer IV Glutathione and high-potency nutritionals containing B-complex vitamins, important trace minerals, vitamin C, and vitamin B-12. Our cancer patients who receive Glutathione and/or nutritional therapies have experienced a greatly enhanced quality of life.

Because of glutathione’s powerful organ protective & immune-boosting qualities, patients are also generally able to tolerate chemo and/or radiation therapy much better, allowing them to complete their prescribed conventional treatment regimens, which oncologists consider to be very important.

Is it safe to take supplements, antioxidants, and intravenous nutritional therapies at the same time as chemo, radiation, or surgery?

We first recommend that every patient discuss their holistic treatment plan with their oncologist, especially prior to initiating chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

The good news is that the preponderance of evidence-based research shows that nutritionally-based therapies generally improve outcomes and benefits in cancer patients and at worst, have a neutral effect. However, there are occasions where antioxidants, and specific herbs, vitamins, etc., may be contraindicated, so we encourage every patient to exercise transparency with their treating oncologist(s) and primary care physicians, to help optimize your treatment results. Dr. Mueller is also very knowledgeable regarding possible contraindications in this area, and will inform his patients when and if these situations arise.

Who is a good candidate for IV nutritional therapies?

All cancer patients can receive significant benefit from IV nutrition and related quality of life infusions. To begin with, these therapies can be very beneficial in patients who do not have cancer, helping to replace vital nutrients and energize the immune system.

However, patients with any stage or type of cancer can benefit by helping to strengthening their native immune systems, and restoring nutrients back to optimal levels. Further, these therapies have proven highly successful at improving the quality of life in the majority of our patients with cancer.

Are there any risks or side effects from these IV therapies?

Because all of the ingredients used in our IV’s are natural and preservative-free (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs and antioxidants) the incidence of side effects or complications is exceedingly rare. Potential risks include redness, bleeding and irritation at the site of needle insertion and minor discomfort with catheter insertion.

How many treatments will I need?

Although the exact number of IV treatments can vary considerably based on many factors, the primary considerations are the underlying health of the patient, type and overall severity of the cancer, ability of the patient to eat and take oral nutrition, whether the patient is undergoing conventional chemo and radiation, and clinical response to treatment.

Generally we start with protocols involving 4-8 week cycles at 1-3 IV’s per week. The average patient might do 2 IV’s per week for 8 weeks for a total of 16 infusions, then undergo re-evaluation to determine the next phase of treatment. However, IV protocols are customized relative to each patient’s needs and can be given on an “as needed” basis.

Can you use my port for administering IV therapies?

Yes, we have the ability to access ports in those patients who have ports inserted and wish to make use of them. However, when we access peripheral veins we utilize relatively small, 24 gauge catheters which cause minimal discomfort. Most patients are quite satisfied and comfortable with our use of peripheral IV’s

How quickly can I expect results with IV therapies?

One great advantage of IV therapies is that in many cases their effects can be felt very rapidly. Many patients who come in severely fatigued and ill walk out feeling much better with as few as one or two IV’s! Although this experience is common, we can make no guarantees of effectiveness nor are these results necessarily typical for every patient.

Other cases may require a series of 10-30 IV’s in order to effectively address longstanding chronic medical issues and deficiencies.

How long do the IV’s take to administer?

The time periods range from as little as 5-10 minutes for our phenomenal, immune-boosting glutathione and immune augmentation IV’s, to one hour for some of the larger volume IV’s. However, for the average patient receiving a single IV, they can expect a time frame of 10-20 minutes.
