IV Therapy

Our proprietary IV therapy delivers a mix of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream.

 

It enables higher concentrations of these nutrients to be absorbed by your cells, since this treatment does not go through the digestive system. Our cells use these extra nutrients to increase our energy levels, help our metabolism, and support the repair and healing processes of our body.

The most common IV includes Vitamin B and C, Magnesium, and Calcium. However, IV Therapy is a personalized treatment, which means that the additional nutrients that are added are customized to your specific needs and recommended by our doctor.

Benefits of IV Therapy

IV therapy offers several benefits in various medical situations.

Rapid Absorption

IV administration allows substances to enter the bloodstream directly, leading to faster absorption and quicker onset of action compared to oral or other forms of administration.

Precise Dosage Control

Healthcare professionals can precisely control the dosage of medications, fluids, or nutrients delivered through IV therapy, ensuring accurate and effective treatment.

Increased Bioavailability

By bypassing the digestive system, IV therapy can achieve higher bioavailability of certain substances, as they are not subject to degradation or alteration in the digestive tract.

FAQ

Is vitamin therapy safe?
The majority of people tolerate IV vitamin therapy well, and it is a procedure that is not invasive. Each patient is assessed beforehand to make sure they are a suitable candidate for the therapy and doses can be tailored, depending on the condition and the vitamins and minerals required.
How can I prepare for my IV treatment?
Before receiving IV therapy, it is extremely important to be well hydrated. It is also recommended to eat something before your treatment. Being hydrated will make it easier for the IV to access your veins, and eating before will prevent any headaches or lightheadedness.
How often can I receive an IV treatment?
The amount of IV therapy sessions depends on your particular condition, as well as your health history. Your doctor will recommend how many sessions you will need based on these two things. It is also possible for this recommendation to change as time goes on - you might change your mind, or your symptoms might improve and less treatments may be required instead.
Are there any risks involved in IV therapy?
Throughout the procedure, sterile equipment and materials are used to reduce the risk of infection. There are several risks involved, including swelling, bruising, or irritation of a vein, but these are easily catched by your doctor as they will be monitoring you throughout the entire length of the procedure.
Do you create specific “nutrient cocktails” based on individual needs?
Yes, all of our serums are customized nutrient plans based on your concerns and needs.
