Ascend Wellness MBS

Ketamine Infusion Therapy & Anesthesiology located in Minot, ND

The human body is a self-healing, self-regenerating organism, capable of restoring health and balance. However, in order for our bodies to do this, they require higher levels of nutrients to repair tissue, restore energy, offset oxidative stress and free radicals, and regenerate our cells. 

IV nutrient therapy is a uniquely safe, powerful, and potent therapy to help your body heal and regenerate, so you can feel better faster. With dietary, lifestyle, and supplement support, many of these changes can happen, but on a much slower timeline. IV nutrient therapy allows your body to make changes immediately and dietary, lifestyle, and supplement support helps you maintain your optimal health.

Getting all of the vitamins and minerals you need from your diet can be a challenge, and taking supplements doesn't always fill the gap. Melinda Howe, APRN, CRNA, at Ascend Wellness MBS in Minot, North Dakota, uses vitamin infusion therapy to restore hydration and micronutrient levels, treat a range of problems from fatigue to headaches, and promote overall wellness. To find out how you can benefit from treatment at Ascend Wellness MBS, call their office or book an appointment online today.

Vitamin Infusion Q&A

What is a vitamin infusion?

A vitamin infusion delivers essential micronutrients directly into your bloodstream. A lack of any essential vitamins and minerals can cause a multitude of health problems, from dull skin and hair to anemia and a higher risk of heart disease. Many people take oral supplements to address this problem, but they don't always guarantee success.

For oral vitamin and mineral supplements to work, your digestive system has to absorb them. However, your body won't always extract the full value of the supplement, so much of it could pass out of your body unused. 

Vitamin infusions overcome this by bypassing your gastrointestinal tract and getting the nutrients straight into your blood.

Why might I need a vitamin infusion?

You might benefit from a vitamin infusion if you're run down, have recently been sick, or are lacking in energy. Vitamin infusions can also give your immune system a boost and provide instant rehydration.

The vitamin infusions available at Ascend Wellness MBS also come in various formulas to address specific health issues, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hangovers
  • Dehydration
  • Upper respiratory tract infections
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Allergies

Vitamin infusions could also provide you with nutritional support when you're trying to lose weight, give your skin a healthy glow, and even slow down the aging process.

What types of vitamin infusions are available?

There are many different blends of vitamin infusions. Some of the most popular at Ascend Wellness MBS include:

Myers’ cocktail

The Myers’ cocktail is the original vitamin infusion. It's great for giving your health an overall boost and combating problems like fatigue.

Vitamin C

A vitamin C infusion supports immune system function to help you fight off infections.


Glutathione is an antioxidant. This infusion supports neurological (brain and nervous system) health, helps with fatigue, and improves thyroid gland function.

NAD infusion

NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an enzyme that plays a vital role in energy production. A NAD infusion can combat fatigue and help you overcome addiction, and it has anti-aging properties.

What happens when I have a vitamin infusion?

A vitamin infusion treatment session takes place in your own relaxing, comfortable space at Ascend Wellness MBS. The needle goes into your arm, and your specially selected vitamin infusion drips down a thin pipe (catheter), through the needle, and into your bloodstream.

Each vitamin infusion session takes 40-60 minutes, then you can go on with your day as you would normally. You should feel the effects of the vitamin infusion getting to work shortly after your treatment.
