Change lives with the SRQ Wellness Foundation

Bridging the gap to health with financial support and holistic care, SRQ Wellness Foundation aims to improve lives with access to IV nutrition and health and nutritional counseling.

SRQ Wellness Foundation is a non-profit 501c-3 tax expemt organization, Tax ID # 93-2620785

Our Mission

To improve the health of nutrient deficient individuals and their care givers by providing access to affordable IV vitamins and wholistic supportive care.  We strive to support people who face financial barriers in accessing essential nutrients and aim to enhance their quality of life through targeted fundraising efforts.  Through our holistic health care initiatives we seek to promote better health outcomes for our clients and to empower them, as individuals, to achieve optimal wellness.

Our Vision

SRQ Med Spa seeks to document evidence that IV vitamin based health care is a therapeutic option for various ailments and should be covered by health insurance.

We envision a world where our clients can get medical reimbursement or coverage of IV vitamin treatments to improve their health and address their underlying illnesses.

In addition, once grant recipients have returned to a state of optimal nutrition, they will graduate after learning HOW TO EAT TO THEIR NUTRITIONAL NEEDS to support their individual need for vitamin health.


Mission Founders Campaign

SRQ Wellness Foundation’s first fund raising campaign is to raise funds to launch this non-profit and help currently-identified clients achieve treatment goals through IV vitamin and other holistic health care strategies.

The 1st 4 clients have been identified and are in immediate need of financial support to meet their current medical needs. They know how much they benefit from care and have agreed to work with the foundation to share their stories and document their progress. The results of their outcomes will be collected and used as proof of concept and baseline data for future fundraising and grant proposals requests.

Our GOAL is to GRADUATE our clients into learning how to improve their nutritional profile without our support.  This may involve working with them to get insurance to cover their therapies, establishing strategic partnerships with other local non-profits or finding permanent health care alternatives.

The Birth of an Idea

At SRQ Med Spa, we believe in investing in yourself for improved health. Our range of injectable vitamins, along with massage and NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING, nurtures the body from the inside out. The results have been astonishing, with clients experiencing remarkable benefits, even those with life-altering conditions:

  • Cancer patients felt healthy and strong after their treatment but arrived weak and tired.
  • Psychiatric care patients who felt “like my old self” and “had nothing to stress about” after their treatments.
  • Ostomy bag patients who went from confused and weak to strong and sharp as a tack.
  • Anorexic patients nutrition improved and they were able to face reach their body goals.

We quickly recognized the financial challenges our clients faced, as insurance rarely covers such services. To bridge this gap, we proudly launched the SRQ Wellness Foundation, Inc. With this non-profit, we can now extend our support to an under-served population, making life-changing care and nutrition accessible to all.

Experience the power of wellness with SRQ Med Spa and the SRQ Wellness Foundation. Help us feed people for whom IV nutrition makes a significant difference.

What Services will a Grant Recipient Receive?

Each grant recipient will receive a package of personally curated services to manage their condition. Their support may include a combination of any of the following services.

Initial Micronutrients Evaluation

We assess each recipient’s unique nutritional needs, analyzing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. This baseline information guides us in tailoring the ideal combination of nutrients for the client. We regularly repeat the evaluation every 3 months to track progress and ensure the most effective strategy moving forward.

IV Vitamin Therapy

Weekly IV hydration (500 ml or a liter of fluids, aka saline) INFUSED with highly absorbable vitamins as determined by both the micro-nutrient testing and from subjective analysis.

Independent Health Coach Consulting

We are working with both local and national nutrition and health coaches to find a way to help people whom the traditional medical system has failed.  When nutrition is the answer, insurance will not pay.  Our nurses are mindful of this as they consider alternate therapeutic options for these clients.

Grant Recipients Responsibilities

Clients will be asked to contribute toward their care.

They will be asked how much they can afford on a monthly basis and will need to contribute that amount on the 1st of each month. That money will be spent first.

Grant recipients will be asked to document their therapeutic advances in a journal.

That journal will be used to review their outcomes and to modify treatments as needed. It may also be used in other ways as needed with the permission of the client. It will be the basis for the subjective vitamin choice decisions.

Treatment may be discontinued at any time at the sole discretion of the SRQ Wellness Foundation, Inc.’s board.

Clients will NOT be given any money directly. The funds will held in a client specific account to be spent and monitored by SRQ Med Spa’s financial oversight coordinator.

The grant recipient agrees to commit to a 3 month course of therapy.

After each quarter needs and benefits will be re-evaluated.

You will be asked to share your stories on various sites as needed to grow our program.

Feels amazing!

You know it was a successful IV when you can’t find anything in your mind to stress about.  I am trying to find something to be anxious about but I can’t find anything.  It feels amazing to experience this peace.  Thank you and your nurse.
