VitaKare & Contouring 


Nutrition deficiency is an often-overlooked problem that has shown to worsen many illnesses. Fortunately, Kare Chiropractic can provide a variety of IV therapies to address issues related to nutrition deficiency. Nutritional deficiency occurs when either the body can’t absorb the necessary amount of a nutrient or there isn’t enough of the nutrients found in the foods we eat. Intravenous (IV) treatments are exceptionally powerful because they bypass issues with oral administration, including stomach upset, absorption issues, and loss of potency. In addition, large doses can be administered via IV without gastrointestinal side effects, which can limit dosing.

Intravenous nutrient therapy involves combing an assortment of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, chelating agents, and trace elements into a carrier solution and administering them directly into the bloodstream through an IV "push." These therapeutic agents are "pushed" through the IV catheter over a shorter span of time than a IV "drip." These innovative, safe, and powerful therapies support the resolution of numerous health problems. In Cottleville, Kare Chiropractic offers various IV nutrient therapies including high dose vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid, B vitamins, Myers' Cocktails, and other formulations. For more information about IV nutrition therapies, connect with one of our qualified healthcare professionals to help you discover the best option for care to help you feel your best.

Vitamin C 

Vitamin C is uniquely suited to kill pathogens, neutralize toxins, build collagen and boost the activity of the immune system. Vitamin C has antioxidant, antiviral and antihistamine properties. In high doses, it also has pro-oxidant, anti-cancer properties. It is often used as an adjunct in cancer treatment, as an alternative to antibiotic therapy and for its wound healing properties.

Vitamin C is essential for:

Healthy teeth, gums & bones
Healing wounds, scar tissue & fractures
Preventing scurvy
Resisting infection
Preventing & treating the common cold
Strengthening blood vessels
Iron absorption

Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, the inter-cellular “cement” which holds tissues together. It is also one of the major antioxidant nutrients which neutralize free radicals & prevent cell damage.

Vitamin C prevents the conversion of nitrates (from tobacco smoke, smog, lunch meats, & some vegetables) into cancer-causing substances.

The National Institutes of Health has published evidence demonstrating Vitamin C’s anti-cancer properties.

Alpha Lipoic Acid 

Often called the “master antioxidant” because it works synergistic with other nutrients. It is vital to cellular energy production and helps to neutralize the damage caused by free radicals. It is used in the treatment of diabetic neuropathy, liver ailments and insulin resistance. ALA by IV drip is neuro-protective and acts as chelating agent.

Myers' Cocktail 

Combines magnesium, calcium, B vitamins and vitamin C for their immune system and adrenal support characteristics. This unique blend of nutrients was created by Baltimore physician, Dr. John Myers, during the 1960s. It has been studied and used since to treat a variety of conditions including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, asthma, migraines, and chronic pain. Additionally, it speeds recovery from colds and flu and aids in quick physical recovery for athletes during training.
