About

VIRASOAP provides health consultation and mobile IV therapy with potent immune support options. Our treatments are administered by licensed physicians to ensure exceptional, individualized care in your home or office.

The world is changing and so is the demand for healthcare.

Our immune systems are under attack like never before. There are nearly 8 billion people in our globalized world and we are all surrounded by trillions of viruses and bacteria every day. This increases chances of infection with the growing number of host environments — an ever-changing ecosystem for disease.

We know that infectious diseases kill over 17 million people a year. Lower respiratory infections are the #4 leading cause of death in the world and the #6 cause in high-income countries. Modern medicine gives us increasingly sophisticated tools to treat illnesses. But when hospitals and clinics become dangerous due to the increased number of congregated illness, patients have asked for a better way to receive treatment that is still safe and physician-guided.

Dr. Alexa Neynaber

Founder | Medical Director | IV Therapy Specialist

Dr. AlexaDr. Alexa earned her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from the University of Nebraska and her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University. Her CNME-accredited residency was completed in primary and specialty care within the Seattle area, and she’s now an adjunct clinical supervisor and professor at Bastyr Center for Natural Health where she teaches IV therapy and sees patients. She utilizes functional medicine treatments and testing, and will soon be certified with the Institute of Functional Medicine as an IFMCP.

When her high-risk and immune-compromised patients were too weak or unable to make it into clinic, she realized the importance of home care and treatment delivered. She established a practice that brought the immune support directly to her patients to ensure they could still receive the care they needed.

Over the years, Dr. Alexa has seen the tremendous impact that IV treatment has on her patients and is an advocate for expert application. She has seen the place for stand-alone IV treatment and complementary IV therapy, and she has been an advocate for safety when IV intervention is not indicated. Dr. Alexa uses her education in clinical nutrition to further the impact of her immune-support protocols and has treated hundreds of conditions and thousands of patients in both primary and specialty care settings. She is passionate about her patients and advocates for how complementary and alternative medicine can support anyone in any walk of life.

Frequently asked questions

IV stands for intravenous as this therapy is delivered via needle or catheter into a vein. The therapy consists of hydrating fluid or concentrated vitamins and minerals to support you. The physician connects your personally made IV solution to an injection site. If you are receiving a push, the syringe is gently pushed over time to your comfort. If you are receiving a bag, the treatment is hung above your head to let gravity work its magic and carry your treatment fluids into the vein over time.

Simply put, IV delivery of medications and vitamins is more efficient than taking them orally. This is because the GI tract is subject to many factors that have to align for perfect absorption, and this ‘perfect’ absorption is still less than the 100% absorption of an IV. Your body will be able to maximally receive the nutrients when delivered directly into the bloodstream and are immediately available to use by the cells that need it most.

By relying on digestion to deliver your vitamins, it can take hours before the nutrients are delivered to the blood. With factors like low stomach acid, GI disease, coffee consumption, or calcium intake, you can limit the amount that gets absorbed by the digestive tract even more. Plus, certain supplements when taken orally in high doses, such as magnesium and vitamin C, can cause bad side effects such as diarrhea. IV therapy is not subject to this issue because it bypasses the gut completely.

Vitamins are essential to energy production of every cell in the body. When vitamins are in high demand by the body, such as under stress and fighting infection, it can leave the body in deficiency, with lower ability to defend against invaders and an inability to detoxify itself. Antioxidants are necessary to maintain a healthy immune system and fight oxidative damage.

Yes! High-dose vitamin C has been studied for over 100 years and has been proven to have a number of health-benefiting and immune-fortifying properties. But don’t take our word for it — read some of these third-party research articles:

That depends on a few factors such as which treatment you are receiving, if you get any add-ons, and how big your veins are. Our treatments on average take between 30 and 90 minutes.

This depends on your goals! Read about the treatments on our services page. If you still have questions, feel free to schedule a Quick Phone Consult.

Depends on your treatment goals. We recommend times when your body needs more protection and is under more stress, such as before traveling and when you are low on sleep. Our physicians can walk you through what is right for you during your home visit. If you are planning to do a series of repeated treatments and haven’t had recent bloodwork, we will draw a small blood test to ensure you are healthy enough to process high volumes of fluid. This is for your safety and to make sure you’re supporting your body the best way possible!

The short answer: most people! The long answer: travelers taking public transit, business professionals with stress, medical providers with exposure, women who are pregnant or may become pregnant, students with decreased sleep, those with low immunity due to comorbidities or recent illness, parents who have kids in school and daycare, and athletes who don’t want anything to come between them and their performance. Who doesn’t benefit? Those with severe diseases affecting the kidneys that are unable to process high amounts of fluids.

We do not accept insurance because we want to ensure we are able to provide you with the highest quality of materials and equipment, which is not covered by insurance plans.
