Health + Beauty + Wellness One Premiere Location
Though you can get all the essential nutrients your body needs from food and supplements, how much of those oral nutrients is your body actually absorbing? With intravenous (IV) therapy, nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream so there’s no question that you’re getting everything you need. At Flourish Wellness Center in San Antonio, Texas, board-certified family medicine physician Robert Yerrington, MD, and the team offer IV therapy to optimize nutritional health and wellness. To learn more about IV therapy, call the office or book an appointment online today.
IV THERAPY BENEFITS

IV Therapy bypasses the digestive tract and infuses your vitamins and minerals straight to your blood stream allowing for 100% absorption rate at safe dosages.
IV Therapy can infuse higher concentration levels of your vitamins and minerals into your body than oral supplements.
More Efficient & Effective
IV Therapy has been proven to be a more efficient and more effective treatment for overcoming illness, sickness or disease. As well as a more effective plan for preventive care.
Bypass Digestive Tract
Avoid digesting unhealthy coatings of your dietary supplements and allow your body to receive exactly what it needs where it needs it. Rather than going through the digestive tract, vitamins and minerals can go straight to your blood stream with IV Nutritional Therapy.

What is the Myers' Cocktail?

Yes! Flourish Wellness Center is under the certified care of Dr. Robert F. Yerrington MD.,PA and follows the Riordan Protocol for high dosage vitamin-c patients. A full consultation with Dr. Yerrington and blood work showing your vitamin-c levels are required before receiving treatment.

Flourish Wellness Center combines the IV weight-loss series bags with the 21-day detox program to promote weight loss and replenish nutrient levels. Some added services such as Infrared Sauna and Peptide Therapy might be suggested as added benefits to your weight loss journey.
A full consultation is required with Dr. Yerrington prior to treatment.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a built-in antioxidant present in each cell of our bodies. Fighting free radicals is just the start. Glutathione protects the immune system from oxidative stress, allowing newly formed immune cells to proliferate to attack germs and viruses, protects DNA in the nucleus of the cell, reduces the mitochondrial DNA of the cell, reduces lipids peroxides formed by the oxidation of fats, transports amino acids from outside of the cell into the cell allowing protein biosyntheses to take place, is the first line of protection against environmental and chemical toxins, is a major sequestering agent of heavy metal and so much more! For more information on glutathione, see our FAQ's page under IV Therapy!
What is NAD?
NAD stands for Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is a coenzyme present in almost all cells in your body. Its main purpose is to fuel metabolic reactions forward, similar to gas in your car. Without NAD, your cells won't be able to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and amino acids. NAD also plays significant role in gene expression linked to age-related diseases. NAD has been used for people suffering with addiction, age-related disease and chronic fatigue. It is also thought of as the great "anti-ager" as it promotes and protects your telomeres at the end of your chromosomes. NAD through IV is proven to give you a faster, more effective outcome. This dosage quickly optimizes your NAD levels, which revs up the engine in your cells (called the mitochondrion) translating into more energy for you, better sleep and over all better mental clarity & focus.
Treatment can be infused from every 4-14 days and requires a full consultation from Dr. Yerrington prior to treatment. For more information on NAD, visit our FAQ's page under IV Therapy.
What is an IV therapy push?
During an IV therapy push, your provider uses a syringe to directly inject various nutrients through your IV line.
These nutrients may include:
- Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)
- B-complex vitamins
How long does treatment take?
Treatment can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours depending upon service. Rare infusions may require 18 plus hours dependent upon the service received (such as NAD detox for opioid addiction therapy). Any of our vitamin shots take only minutes.
Your IV therapy at Flourish Wellness Center may also include various add-ons, such as vitamin C, zinc, calcium, or magnesium, as well as amino acids such as L-carnitine, L-arginine, or L-glutamine. Medications, such as ZofranⓇ or ToradolⓇ, may also be included. The practice also offers B12 injections to improve levels, boost energy, and assist with weight loss. The wellness center also offers the MIC add-on, which contains methionine, inositol, and choline, to support weight loss.
Before each visit we always take vitals and prep the area so you have a clean sterile environment to relax in. Selected patients with multiple health issues will require blood work before starting.
You can expect the highest quality of care when coming to Flourish Wellness Center.
