Altitude Sickness Be Gone

This IV contains minerals, vitamins, and electrolytes, mixed in 500mL of fluid, to help combat dehydration and symptoms of altitude sickness within minutes. Altitude sickness can occur in anyone, but most frequently occurs in people not used to being at high elevation. It occurs when someone goes from low elevation to high elevation, typically over 8,000 feet, and is due to rapid exposure to low levels of oxygen over time.

Symptoms of altitude sickness are usually nausea, vomiting, dizziness, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, and headache. If not treated, altitude sickness can become severe, and even fatal. If fluid builds up in the brain (cerebral edema) or in the lungs (pulmonary edema), altitude sickness is a medical emergency. Symptoms of severe altitude sickness include coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, confusion, extreme drowsiness, inability to walk in a straight line, etc. The altitude sickness IV can prevent mild altitude sickness from becoming a life-threatening event.

The fluid in the altitude sickness IV will decrease the dehydration that accompanies altitude sickness and get you feeling back to your normal self within minutes. This IV is also packed with vitamins and minerals to help energize your system after being fatigued from high altitude exposure. This IV also contains medications to combat headache and nausea symptoms and is accompanied with oxygen, so that you can feel back to your normal self quickly.

The altitude sickness IV can be done preventatively as well. If you know you are heading into the mountains from sea level or coming to visit the Denver metro area from out of town, consider doing this IV as soon as you arrive in order to prevent symptoms of altitude sickness. This IV also treats acute altitude sickness symptoms immediately. Other factors that contribute to altitude sickness include caffeine and alcohol, so if you are not used to being at high altitude, consider cutting down on these dehydrating substances ahead of time.

Add On Boosts

Vitamin C

Feel like you need more vitamin C? Feel symptoms of a cold or flu coming on? While our Immune Boost IV and Coldbuster IVs contain enough vitamin C to really combat any infection you may be fighting off, we can add increments of 5gm of vitamin C to this IV for more of a boost. This vitamin C boost must be added prior to beginning the IV. Vitamin C will help fight off infection, improve wound healing, boost your immune system, improve skin health, speed up recovery post-operatively, and more.

Vitamin B12

Feeling low in energy and like you need a boost? B12 is already in most of our IVs. However, if you feel like you need a greater energy boost than usual, don’t hesitate to let our nurses know that you would like an extra 1mL of B12 today. This B12 boost can be added at any time during the IV.


2mL of this extremely potent antioxidant can be added to any IV. This is a great add-on for people who like to party, for those suffering from chronic disease or chronic pain, for patients on regular medications, and for those wanting to rid themselves of excess toxin buildup. Glutathione helps decrease inflammation in the body, helps break down fat, is anti-aging, improves sleep, improves energy, and detoxifies. It is a powerful molecule packed with a punch! This addon is typically performed as a “push” during the IV or at the end of the IV.

Trace Minerals

This is a great add-on to any of our IVs. Trace minerals are needed to optimize energy, boost your immune system and improve muscle recovery. We are often depleted of these minerals with our poor gut health and depleted soils. Trace minerals improve skin health, prevent damage from the sun’s rays, decrease muscle spasms, and slow the aging process, both inside and out. This is a great boost to add on for anyone suffering from gut issues, or recovering from a recent illness.


This is a medication that can be added to your IV to help decrease nausea. This is sometimes added to our Migraine relief IV or Hangover Rescue IV when nausea is present. We also add this to our altitude sickness IV, when needed.


This is a potent anti-inflammatory medication that can be added to some of the above IVs. This medication immediately decreases pain in the body or gets rid of headaches. The physician will first make sure you have no signs of kidney disease, or no reported personal history of kidney dysfunction prior to administering this medication.

Extra Hydration

For just $35, you can add on an extra bag of fluids. These electrolyte-packed bags of fluid will rehydrate your cells and help you recover from illness, stress, or any other life event you are dealing with.
