IV Nutrient Therapy

IV Therapy
 
 

Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy provides your body with a direct infusion of vitamins and other nutrients so that it can function at an optimal level.

Benefits of IV Therapy

IV therapy provides a larger and better absorbed dose of vitamins and other nutrients than what is achieved with food and oral supplements. This is because it bypasses the digestive system and directly enters the vascular compartment. As a result, effects are often felt much faster.

IV therapy can be beneficial for a wide variety of conditions including:

  • Fatigue

  • Sports recovery

  • Anxiety & depression

  • Chronic stress

  • Immune health

  • Headaches

  • Digestive concerns that reduce proper nutrient absorption

It is also useful for those that forget to take their supplements regularly or are looking to add to their preventative wellness plan.

Our IVs are tailored specifically to your health and wellness needs. Before your first IV, you will meet with our naturopathic doctor. She will go over your current health concerns to determine whether IV therapy is a good fit. She will also review your most recent blood-work, medications and allergies to ensure IV therapy is a safe treatment for you.

IV Procedure

  1. Book a naturopathic consultation (IV therapy) to assess your health & create IV plan (Note: please bring a copy of your most recent blood work to this appointment)

  2. The day before your IV infusion is scheduled drink plenty of water. Prior to your appointment, eat a snack or meal and continue to hydrate.

  3. The IVs range in length from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. Bring anything you’d like to occupy your time (ie. book, headphones, laptop) or take the opportunity to relax.
