IV Therapy

Our cells require vitamins and minerals for the proper biochemical processes for our overall health.  These nutrients can be obtained from many sources, including the foods we eat and select nutritional supplements, such as multivitamins or antioxidants.  However, we can only absorb a certain amount from these sources.  Infusing these substances directly into the blood circulation allows a chance to provide a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals than would be possible by taking supplements. This then allows for rapid delivery of these nutrients directly to our cells and tissues by bypassing the gastrointestinal tract.  Other benefits include the ability to provide nutrients and medicines that would otherwise be difficult due to their poor absorption rate, or any barriers to normal absorption, such as a digestive illness.  In addition to vitamins and minerals, other substances that can be infused include botanical extracts and antioxidant compounds if required.

 
Intravenous administration of nutrients can achieve serum concentration not obtainable with oral or even IM (Intramuscular) administration.  Cells are repeatedly flooded with nutrients and the improvement can be cumulative.

THINGS TO KNOW:

Before IV:

  • A urine sample is required before the first IV Therapy to rule out current infections and any other kidney issues.  

  • Eat a good meal minimum of two hours before IV Therapy and make sure to drink at least 1L of water.  This ensures the blood sugar levels and blood pressure are stable during IV Therapy.

  • Feel free to bring a light snack if you did not have a full meal.  Otherwise, apple juice will be given.  

  • Bring in any recent or relevant blood work with you and inform us of any supplements or prescription medications you are taking.

  • Wear loose and comfortable clothing.

  • Do not work out before or after your IV therapy.

  • Let us know if you are experiencing dizziness, pain, heart palpitations, nausea, headaches, cramps or difficulty breathing.

After IV

  • Do not lift any heavy objects after IV Therapy.

  • If the needle insertion site becomes red, hot or itchy or you develop a rash or fever call us immediately during operating hours.  After hours call 911 or go to the emergency room.
