At Proactive Health, we understand that it's not just about what we eat. It's about what we absorb.  Feel the difference in your energy, metabolism, and health with our unique nutrient injection therapies.

I especially appreciate Dr. Zinkov's extensive knowledge and consideration for nutrition when approaching overall health and wellness. It's hard to find practicing physicians, who even consider nutrition when assessing a concern I may bring to them.

 Why Vitamin Shots & IV Therapy? 

Athletes swear by it.  Celebrities can't live without it.  IV therapy has received plenty of attention over the years, and for good reasons.  There are many factors that affect nutrient absorption.  Symptoms like fatigue, anxiety, poor sleep, weight loss and weight gain, skin conditions, depression, low libido, hair loss, digestive problems, and reduced muscle mass just to name a few can be due to nutritional deficiencies.  

Here are some top factors that affect nutrient and vitamin absorption:

   Poor Digestion and Absorption

   Food Allergies

   Decreased Quality of Food

   Present and past use of medications

   Existing medical conditions like hypertension, diabetes, chronic fatigue, MS etc.


   Increased Stress

   Alcohol Consumption


   Increased Physical Exertion

What is Nutrient & Vitamin Injection Therapy?

Nutrient injection therapy involves taking specific nutrients or a combination of nutrients and delivering it in the most effective and efficient way possible using IV therapy or intramuscularly.  This is more superior to taking supplements orally, which have questionable absorbency.  While vitamin B12 shots are the most well known injected vitamin there are many other nutrients that are frequently injected by medical professionals to naturally and safely correct a variety of conditions. Common nutrients used in injection therapy include B Vitamin Complex, B12, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Amino Acids, L-Carnitine, and Magnesium just to name a few.  

The benefits of vitamin shots and nutrient injections:

  • Increased energy

  • Improved sleep

  • Efficient fat metabolism

  • Maximized recovery

  • Decreased cravings

  • Improved mood and concentration

  • Decreased inflammation

How Does IV Therapy Work & What Can You Expect?

Our bodies need a boost every once in awhile.  There's no better and more efficient way than delivering the nutrients straight to your cells bypassing the digestive tract. Nutrient injection therapy is done over a course of 4-12 weeks depending on individual needs.  Given your symptoms, we choose the best nutrient type and concentration, and either perform a weekly course of IV therapy or intramuscular vitamin injections.  Arrive well hydrated, relax, and feel the difference within 24-48 hours!

The following nutrient and vitamin injections are available in our Bellevue office:
