Vitamin B12 is useful in converting fat and carbohydrates to energy and making new proteins. In addition to low energy, B12 can also be used in individuals experiencing nerve injuries (often felt as burning or loss of sensation), looking to lose weight, or with low immune function. B12 is also great for supporting individuals with stress, acid reflux or heartburn, and those at risk for cardiovascular problems.
While vitamin B12 can be obtained through a healthy balanced diet, people with certain health conditions, such as gastrointestinal problems, infections, etc can diminish the body’s ability to properly absorb ingested vitamin B12. Since vitamin B12 is mostly found in animal products, those on a vegan or plant-based diet are also at a higher risk of being vitamin B12 deficient. Serious vitamin B12 deficiency may result in anemia, stomach problems, and nerve damage. When necessary, Dr. Connolly can order blood work for you to test your vitamin B12 levels.
Adrenal Support Injection
The adrenal injection contains a mixture of vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Procaine, and Adenosine Monophosphate (AMP). Adrenal fatigue is a common problem in today's society due to our ultra-busy, overwhelming, stressful, always-on-the-go lifestyles. Adrenal injections are designed to give your body a boost in energy. Adrenal injections may be beneficial for people that are suffering from chronic low energy, poor focus, memory and attention, depression, severe stress and fibromyalgia.
Vitamin D Injection
Vitamin D is made when the UVB rays of the sun hit our skin and begin a cascade of events within our bodies. Without vitamin D, the body can’t absorb calcium adequately and ends up stealing it from our bones. In addition, a lack of vitamin D also leads to abnormal blood levels of phosphorus - an important mineral for building bones. In addition to bone health, the role of vitamin D has been intensely researched for cancer prevention and has also been shown to be involved in autoimmune disease and proper immune function.
It is not uncommon in North America to be insufficient (meaning just under the recommended blood levels) in vitamin D. Factors that limit the production or absorption of vitamin D include using sunscreen, dark skin, trouble absorbing dietary fat (such as in irritable bowel disease), cloud cover, pollution, the change in seasons, older age, inadequate time in the sun, and inadequate intake of vitamin D-rich foods (salmon, mackerel, tuna, milk, fortified foods).
To check your levels, Dr. Connolly can perform a finger-prick test and send your results off to a private lab for assessment or refer you to a private lab locally for assessment. Based on your lab results a recommended vitamin D dose will be suggested to you and if needed vitamin D injections can be administered.

L- Carnitine Injection
Your body produces L-Carnitine to help transport fat, particularly long-chain fatty acids, into cells. It’s then used as fuel when you exercise and rest, and it’s especially effective during intense workouts. L-Carnitine is considered a conditionally essential nutrient that can positively boost your body by:
Enhances your athletic performance
Boosts blood flow to the muscles
Keeps blood glucose levels low
Serves as an antioxidant that can help prevent damage done to your healthy cells by free radicals
