Good healthcare is tailored to each patient’s needs. With highly targeted treatments and advanced testing, our doctors strive to identify exactly what your body needs to heal and then help you implement a treatment plan.
At Holtorf Medical Group, our doctors use a wide range of custom IV therapies that are individually tailored to the needs of each patient. Intravenous (IV) therapy is a method to deliver nutrients and therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream. Individuals with chronic illness, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM), Autoimmune disease and those with chronic infections (especially Lyme disease), often have functional nutritional deficiencies that compromise cellular function. These deficiencies affect the body’s ability to make energy and fight infections.
In certain individuals, oral supplementation may be unable to deliver nutrients to the cells for improvement in energy, pain, and immune function needed to attack bacteria, viruses, yeast or detoxification. High doses of nutrients and therapeutic agents are needed to improve cellular function which oral supplements cannot achieve due to gastrointestinal irritation, limitations of absorption within the gastrointestinal tract and the metabolic breakdown which occurs when passing through the liver.
When therapies are given intravenously (IV), without the limitations of oral supplements, these therapies are much more effective with major improvements often seen in a short period of time. Intravenous (IV) therapies are a great way to “jump-start” your treatment today. See just a few of the IV packages we offer below.
Additionally, we offer intravenous ozone therapy. Ozone Therapy is a unique and integrative treatment that is used to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. This is achieved through the process known as autohemotherapy, in which blood is drawn from a patient, exposed to ozone and re-injected intravenously (directly into the vein). The effects are shown to be both healing and detoxifying with its main purpose of suppressing infection and boosting the immune system. The history of Ozone Therapy dates back to the early 1950’s in Germany and has since gained recognition in the United States as more physicians are understanding its health benefits. Studies have shown that as part of an overall integrative treatment plan, it produces positive outcomes for treating a variety of conditions and illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic hepatitis, herpes, chemical sensitivities, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, colitis, and Crohn’s disease.
One of the fundamental underlying causes of all degenerative diseases, from diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer, is decreased mitochondria cellular energy production. Ozone has been found to correct this issue. Ozone Therapy stimulates the uptake of oxygen by stimulating the DPG enzyme. The DPG enzyme supports the release of oxygen from the hemoglobin molecule so that it can be used by the cell. When cells get the optimal amount of oxygen and function properly, they help to prevent or inhibit disease.
*IV packages only available at our El Segundo location.
The Wellness bundle includes two IVs, NAD and Power Push. NAD is a coenzyme that powers metabolic processes and impacts a variety of systems including digestion, cognition, mental clarity, aging, and overall energy levels by boosting mitochondrial function. The Power Push is a quick boost of energy by stimulating mitochondria as well as providing nutritional and immune support.
The Neuro bundle features an NAD IV paired with supplements that support healthy brain function. NAD has the ability to increase the body's serotonin levels and can improve symptoms of depression and anxiety. Restoring NAD levels can also reverse mitochondrial dysfunction and allow cells to return to full energy status, offering the possibility of undoing mitochondrial damage and the resulting chronic illness.
The immune boost IV contains larger amounts of magnesium, B complex, vitamin C, and has additional trace minerals to boost your immune system. This IV, combined with our immune-boosting supplements, will keep you healthy and decrease your risk of contracting a cold, the flu or worse.
Are you tired of feeling tired? Do you still feel sluggish even after a good night’s rest? Take care of your adrenals with this IV and supplement bundle. The immune-enhancing Power Push IV with Glutathione is the perfect way to give your adrenals to the nutrition they need. Glutathione is the most potent antioxidant in our body but it becomes depleted with age, illness, stress, and toxic overload.

Ozone Therapy is a unique and integrative treatment that is used to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone into the body. Ozone Therapy provides many powerful and healing health benefits with little or no side effects.

Additionally, it improves circulation by enhancing the flow of your blood, and more.

While Holtorf Medical Group does not accept insurance directly, depending on your insurance provider, you may be reimbursed for a portion of your treatment. It is important to recognize that although we have an idea of what might be approved for coverage, our staff are not experts on the specific guidelines for each provider. Further, insurance companies consider each claim individually based on a variety of factors. Therefore, something that is covered for you may not be approved for a friend or relative. We recommend that you contact your insurance provider to discuss your out-of-network coverage and benefits.
Dr. Holtorf made the decision to not enter into a contract with any insurance companies for several reasons. When a physician contacts an insurance company, he or is agreeing to practice medicine within the framework dictated by that particular insurance provider. This means that diagnostic and treatment protocols, medications, and appointment duration are all determined by the insurance company, and more or less outside of the physician's control. The familiar experience in which your doctor seems to be racing through your appointment so they can move on to the next patient can be credited to the system. It is not the fault of the physician, simply a requirement of staying afloat while operating within these parameters.
Lab work, certain prescriptions, IV treatments, and office visits may be covered by insurance depending on insurance coverage and diagnoses.
