Cutler Integrative Medicine introduces one of the only FDA/USP compliant IV/IM (Intravenous/Intramuscular) Nutrient Therapy Clinics in the State of Michigan. Our state-of-the-art clinic is pioneered by Naturopathic Physician Dr. Doug Cutler. It incorporates an ISO-5 Cleanroom that includes a Laminar Flow Hood and specialized air filtration to safely prepare sterile vitamin injections within a controlled environment.
Our nutrient formulas are customized to be the most advanced and unique available to help increase energy, enhance mood, improve sleep, optimize immune function, recover cellular homeostasis, decrease the effects of stress, and support weight loss. Even though oral nutrient supplementation is a significant and important factor in any therapeutic regimen, there is no comparison to the efficacy of IV/IMNutrient Therapy that delivers superior/potent doses of nutrients that completely bypass the gastrointestinal system, so you’ll feel better faster. More health, less stress. That’s how life should be!
Benefits include increased strength and boosts in performance, along with reduced fatigue and shorter recovery times.
IV Therapy uses anti-oxidants to fight stress-induced illness and conditions, combating the effects of prolonged cortisol elevation. This is designed to keep successful executives at peak performance.
Even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight the aging process. IV therapy boosts the anti-oxidant vitamin and mineral levels in your body to help your body repair damage, prevent aging, and recover its youthful vigor!
IV/IM Therapy ensures that your caloric restrictions do not negatively impact your health, giving you all the necessary nutrients to feel alert, nourished, and losing fat, not muscle tissue.
Your immune system is on constant guard to protect against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. IV/IM Nutritional Therapy can help enhance your immune system to prevent illness in the first place.
Some allergic reactions only show up as mild skin irritation. Some are life-threatening and severe, like anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening emergency that can trigger a shock in the body. Food and insect sting allergies are capable of triggering anaphylaxis. The signs of an anaphylactic reaction include swelling of the mouth or throat, drop in blood pressure, loss of consciousness, skin rash, difficulty breathing, lightheadedness, nausea, or vomiting.

First of all, there is very little pain involved. The needle typically used is a tiny 24 gauge. When the needle is withdrawn, a soft catheter remains in place for the remainder of the treatment. The infusion is more comfortable than an ordinary blood draw. Depending on the infusion, you may experience the local warmth and either an increase in energy or a relaxation effect. An improved sense of calm and well-being accompanies many infusions, especially vitamin C or magnesium infusions. And many people report subsequently improved sleep. The length of treatment depends on the nutrient mix and concentration being infused. Plan at least one hour for most formulas. “Drips,” like High Dose Vitamin C, may take up to four hours.
We have a dedicated infusion room that is relaxing and peaceful. You may read, watch TV, listen to music, or take a nap. Although you will be sitting most of the time, you may get up and use the restroom if necessary. It is best to eat before having an IV infusion as some infusions affect blood sugar. If you have diabetes, you should monitor your insulin dosage and bring snacks with you to your appointment.
Please come well hydrated and let our staff know if you have any allergies.
