IV Nutrition Therapy in Greater Asheville
Repair damage inflicted by aging and toxins.
IV nutrition therapy refers to the high-dose intravenous infusion of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. But Forum Health’s IV nutrition program is more than that.
We tailor our life-changing program to your unique needs. These might include:
- Boosting energy
- Improving your immune system
- Lowering blood pressure
- Improving blood circulation
- Decreasing inflammation
- Improving focus and concentration
As people age, we become more susceptible to nutritional deficiencies. These can cause damage to DNA — damage that can lead to premature aging, chronic disease, cancer, and early death. IV nutrition therapy is a cornerstone of regenerative medicine, increasing cellular efficiency and helping our bodies repair damage inflicted by aging and a toxic environment.
IV nutrition can be one of the most effective treatments for many health conditions.
Why use IV nutrition?
Quick results: An IV line places nutrients directly into your blood, so you don’t have to wait for them to clear your digestive system and liver. Nutrients are circulated through your bloodstream and delivered to cells, where your body can use them.
High dosage: Some nutrients must achieve specific blood or tissue concentrations to become pharmacologically active. These high concentrations can’t be reached by taking nutrients in pill or liquid form. This is because:
- Vitamins and minerals taken orally are mostly excreted, with little absorbed into your bloodstream
- Many conditions can impair intestinal absorption
- High doses of certain nutrients can cause upset stomach
Only IV infusion can deliver the dosage needed for effective treatment.
Forum Health Asheville’s Approach
Our comprehensive IV nutrition program starts with a thorough understanding of your needs and goals.

After a questionnaire and several diagnostic tests, our expert team will work with you to customize a plan for your lifestyle.
