IM VITAMIN BAR

 

Boost Your Energy, Metabolism and more with Vitamin Injections


A Vitamin Injection is a high dose of vitamins and minerals given to the body through IM (intra-muscular) injection.  Via natural circulation, your body will distribute these nutrients into your bloodstream, and the results can be amazing!  Although oral supplementation has many health benefits, intramuscular injection of nutrients far exceeds the rate of oral absorption and bio-availability by bypassing potential digestive and metabolic barriers.  As a result, nutrients are absorbed more efficiently into cells, directly providing them with the nutrients required to thrive. What does this mean for you?  Healthy cells support metabolism and lead to a robust and vital body, immune system, and faster recovery!

 

At Recharge, we offer patient specific vitamin and mineral shots to support endurance, energy production, recovery, weight loss, fatigue, and detoxification.  We use only the highest quality vitamins and minerals to maximize purity and bioavailability. ​

About Dr. Chris Neary

Chris is ecstatic to be bringing his skill set back in the area where he grew up.  Growing up in Sisters, Oregon, Dr. Chris spent most of his time exploring the beautiful lakes, rivers, forests, mountains and oceans of the area.  When he’s not showing his wife and daughter the outdoors, he spends his time snowboarding, surfing, mountain biking, paragliding, paddle boarding, camping, fishing and enjoying everything Central Oregon has to offer.

Chris discovered his passion for medicine at age 15 during a week-long stay in the hospital with a pneumothorax from a skiing accident.  The practitioners were amazing, the medicine was technical, and of course, having a chest tube was kind of cool.

While attending high school in Sisters, he shadowed doctors and other health professionals at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend.  It was shortly after this experience that he realized that interventional medicine was not what he was looking for, noting the tendency towards drugs and surgery as first-line therapies.  Fully recognizing that there is a time and place for these modalities, through his own experiences with surgery, he knew there was another way.

Chris found what he was looking for when he discovered Naturopathic medicine.  A medicine that works to optimize the body’s own healing processes in restoring health and homeostasis.  He was amazed that with some of the very herbs he had seen growing up, combined with a deep understanding of physiology, a powerful, non-invasive, and sustainable treatment was possible.  This is where he began to see the art in medicine and grow to trust the body as an infinitely complex system.
