Avoid Possible Harmful Medications
by utilizing Natural Medicine

At Solaris Medical Wellness, we provide general and natural medicine. With natural medicine we can provide an alternative, where applicable, to synthetic and possibly more harmful medications. We always try natural medications or therapies first, so as to minimize the toxic load on the body while still treating the patient’s condition. This natural medicine may come from a change in lifestyle and diet, nutraceuticals and/or nutritional IV’s, like the Meyer’s IV.

What is Nutritional Medicine?

Natural medicine is not something with which most people are familiar with, and might conjure up various images. However, nothing could be further from the truth and natural medicine is just that—helping the body to recover its own health in the most natural way possible. The aim of natural medicine is to restore the body to how it should be functioning and keep it there! Natural medicine works to help our body to prevent illness by building up its reserves and systems to give it the tools it needs to repair any damage or fight off an infection it may come across in its daily activities. Prevention is the aim and treatment of the causes of disease, rather than the symptoms the aim of any treatment.

Nutritional Counseling and Supplementation

Solaris Medical Wellness features pharmaceutical grade nutraceuticals by some of the most trusted companies include Thorne, Pure Encapsulations, and Priority One. With these, you can treat chronic fatigue, EBV, liver disease, the flu, and other illness as well as gaining the competitive edge with Meyer’s IV Cocktail of vitamins.

– Post-surgical detoxification
– Hormone imbalance

Meyer’s Vitamin IV Cocktail

The Myer’s IV cocktail was actually developed by a John Myer, MD, of Baltimore, in the 1970’s. Today, the medical providers who more commonly prescribe the nutritional IV are holistic-minded physicians, such as naturopaths (NMD’s or ND’s) and a few holistic, but conventionally trained MD’s. Given the high dose of vitamin C, glutathione, B-vitamins, minerals (Mg & Ca) and saline, the Meyer’s IV cocktail can serve to rehydrate, revitalize, augment the immune system, and help detoxify the liver from drugs and disease. Since it is a very affordable treatment, some patients come in monthly for a “pick-me-up” while others come in 1-2x/week during the cold & flu season. The Myer’s has been most commonly used to treat fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, migraines, and cardiovascular disease. The treatment may take 15-30 minutes. Most insurance providers do not cover this service. Fortunately, the treatment is very affordable.
