Intravenous (IV) and Injection Therapy
Vitamins and minerals are essential to the normal functioning of our bodies. They are necessary for our growth, vitality, and general well-being. They are involved in regulating metabolism, help convert carbohydrates into energy, and assist in forming soft tissue and bone. Usually we can get the right nutrients through our diet, however, sometimes even a great diet may not translate to proper nutrition at the cellular level. There can be many causes of this, which may include: poor digestion, food sensitivities, chronic inflammation, poor immune function, or chronic illness, or side effects from drug therapy.
IV involves the administration of nutrients in high concentrations to rapidly aid cellular healing by any of our lovely Naturopathic Doctors. Normally cells in the digestive tract facilitate the absorption of nutrients, however, in IV therapy, the digestive tract is bypassed with the direct infusion into the bloodstream. This allows the cells to rapidly obtain the nutrients needed to repair and regain strength.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy is a method of delivering customized hydration and nutrient replenishment directly to the body. This treatment involves the use of a compounded IV bag, which is inserted directly into the veins and circulatory system. Because the nutritional compound is delivered directly into the bloodstream, it does not need to be filtered through the digestive system, liver, and kidneys, resulting in immediate administration. When used in conjunction with a wellness program, IV therapy may aid in hydration, detoxification, pain and fatigue relief, and other benefits.
Who is IV Therapy For?
Nutritional IV therapy may be suitable for several individuals, including those with compromised digestive systems, those who avoid oral supplements, those who aim to replenish hydration and boost the immune system, those seeking to detoxify the liver and kidneys, individuals seeking increased energy levels, those who require relief from inflammation, lethargy, pain, and sports injuries, and those seeking additional support in their healthcare.
What's the difference between IV nutrition and oral supplementation?
When taking oral supplements, the nutrients are ingested, and then they pass through the digestive system and liver before entering the bloodstream. On the other hand, IV therapy involves the direct injection of nutrients into the circulatory system, bypassing the need for the nutrients to be filtered through the body. This means that the nutrients are administered instantly and do not require any waiting time for the body to process them.
