  1. Dear Dr Lobe, I have a big race coming up. Can IV Therapy help my performance on race day?
    Answer: To perform optimally you want your muscles and tissues to be well hydrated and you want to be in perfect mineral and electrolyte balance. Muscles require energy, hydration and the perfect balance of minerals and electrolytes to function at their peak performance.  Proper muscle function requires your nerves to be firing efficiently, sort of like the spark plugs to your car motor. The B vitamins are essential for proper nerve and muscle interaction. Vitamin C helps your cells repair and restore and amino acids build muscle.  Our IV solutions are designed to prime your system to help your body perform at its very best.  Our Peak Performace IV is perfect for this.
  2. I just ran a marathon and my muscles are really sore. What treatments will help speed up my recovery?
    Answer: Our Optimal Recovery IV is designed to help you restore your body and feel whole again after a hard run or workout.  We want you to re-hydrate and restore. This IV solution contains the optimal mix of minerals, amino acids, vitamins and anti-oxidants to help your muscles relax and restore quickly even after your hardest workout.
  3. What is IV Therapy and is it right for me?
    Answer: In our fast paced world, time is of the essence. We all want a quick fix so we can get back to normal and get on with our lives.  Living in the fast lane often tempts us to take shortcuts – so we slog down a quick “energy drink” thinking it’s the perfect quick fix. WRONG:  Most energy drinks are really bad for you. They are loaded with sugar (often in disguise) and some electrolytes (in trivial amounts) and perhaps some vitamins (again in trivial amounts).   Here’s a tip: If you want the perfect energy drink – quench yourself with a quart of whole milk – it’s loaded with mostly good stuff.  But keep in mind that you only absorb about 8-10% of what you take in by mouth.

    Energy drinks aside – most of us are NOT going to swallow a quart of milk – so what’s the fastest and easiest way to get what we need into our system and get all (that’s 100%) that we pay for?  That’s where IV’s come into the play. Hydrate and restore 100% with the very best of our especially designed IV solutions or ASK US about creating the perfect solution to meet your needs.

  4. What are the top 5 reasons to add IV Therapy to my wellness routine?
    1. Quick Hydration – HYDRATE
    2. Regain the energy you drain – ENERGIZE
    3. Restore what you lose – RESTORE
    4. Repair damaged tissues – REPAIR
    5. Protect yourself from Illness – PROTECT
