IV Therapies

IV Therapies - IV Therapy - Naturopathic MedicineIV therapy is a new and cutting-edge way to harness the benefits of natural supplements. It involves the injection of sterile, compounded natural substances directly into a vein. After the initial minor poke of the needle, most people find the treatment to be relaxing.

The benefits of IV therapy include:

  • Immediate absorption – IV Therapy can be used for acute conditions such as migraines, headaches, colds and flu.
  • 100% absorption – IVs bypass the GI and liver so 100% gets into the bloodstream. This is especially important for minerals which aren’t as efficiently absorbed in the GI tract as some vitamins.
  • 100% pure ingredients. Even the best quality oral supplements have ingredients which are added for manufacturing ease, taste, or as a filler or preservative. Because the IV ingredients are compounded at a pharmacy, these extra ingredients aren’t needed.
  • The nutrients get where they are needed – into your cells. IV Therapy creates a concentration gradient that allows nutrients to be delivered from the blood stream into the cells more efficiently.
  • Higher doses can be achieved – It is hard to get a therapeutic dose of certain vitamins & minerals such as magnesium & vitamin C orally. If you take high doses of these vitamins orally, they stay in the bowels causing diarrhea.
  • Great for people with digestive disorders. If you are struggling with malabsorption or digestive inflammation, many nutrients can irritate the gut and resist absorption. IV therapy can replace crucial nutrients making you feel better quickly while we work on the underlying digestive problems.
  • Most extended health care plans do not cover oral supplements, however, many plans cover IV therapy as a “Naturopathic Treatment”.
