Vitamin C and Oxidative Therapy Now Offered at Amethyst Wellness

Dec 29, 2019 07:23PM ● By Rebecca Young

Amy Coopersmith, ARNP, and Jerald Coopersmith, ARNP, founders of Amethyst Wellness in Palm Coast, are excited to announce the addition of oxidative therapy to their list of services. “We pride ourselves on being a functional medicine practice, and this is another wonderful treatment we can offer,” says Jerald, who was trained by the Institute of Functional Medicine. “Whereas traditional medicine says, ‘there’s a problem that needs to be fixed or patched,’ functional medicine says, ‘I’m starting at this health level, and I’d like to get to the next level.’ And then we get there in a more natural way.”  

 Just over a year ago, the Coopersmiths added IV nutrition therapy to their offerings. “IV nutrition therapy is the administration of potent blends of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrients designed to correct micronutrient deficiencies,” says Amy. “Treatments are individualized and determined by an individual’s health goals and symptoms.”  

 The Coopersmiths liked the results of IV therapy so much, Jerald was trained in high-dose vitamin C therapy through International IV Nutritional Therapy for Professionals as well. “Most of our clients would use IV therapy if they were getting a cold or for more minor things, for more of what’s known as anti-oxidative types of treatments,” Jerald explains. “Now we’re starting to move onto oxidative treatments. It’s there to target certain conditions. It’s more intense, for sure, than what we’ve been doing with anti-oxidative treatments.”  

 Recent bloodwork is required to ensure each person is healthy enough to receive IV nutrition therapy or high-dose vitamin C therapy. “Everybody gets a full workup. Everybody gets labs and goes through a physical exam before qualifying,” says Amy. “We do the assessments and lab draws and make sure you’re able to undergo these treatments. Sometimes you need to do the anti-oxidative treatments first before doing oxidative treatments.” 

 “We’re just excited to add this aspect. It’s been a long time coming,” adds Jerald.  “We’ve done things differently for a while, and what we’re doing works. If you’re looking for the next level of wellness, come see us.”  

 Amethyst Wellness is located at 50 Cypress Point Pkwy., Stes. B1 and B2, in Palm Coast. For more information, call 386-283-4180 or visit See ad, page xx.
