Nutrient intravenous therapy refers to the use of vitamins, minerals, and/or botanicals delivered directly into the blood stream. This is a safe and effective way to achieve therapeutic levels of nutrients. When you take a supplement orally, you only absorb a percentage of the nutrients contained within the capsule. Capsules and tablets are riddled with preservatives and binders that prevent your body from breaking them down completely, thus decreasing the quantity of nutrient available to be absorbed. By delivering the nutrients directly in to your blood stream, and bypassing the digestive tract, you are able to absorb 100% the nutrients.
We have been trained and licensed to perform IV therapy as well as access PICC lines and ports by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (regulators of all NDs in Ontario).
IV therapy can be used to effectively treat a variety of conditions in conjunction with conventional medicine including:
- Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Chronic Fatigue
- High Blood Pressure
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Lyme Disease
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Dehydration or Malnutrition
- Athletic boost prior to or after a game/race
- Muscle pain and tightness
- Healing after surgery or tissue injury
- and many more
