IV Infusion Therapy FAQs

 What is IV Infusion Therapy? 

Intravenous (IV) therapy is administering fluids directly into a vein which allows for nearly 100% absorption of vitamins and nutrients by bypassing the digestive system.  This enables water, medication, blood, or nutrients to access the body faster through the circulatory system. IV therapy is extremely common and provides a wide variety of benefits. Such benefits not only include hydration but also support the body in a variety of healing processes.

There are very few side effects to IV therapy, and the benefits far outweigh the risks. There are risks of bruising, infection, vitamin overdoses, and vein inflammation. Our IV therapy services are performed by a Naturopathic Doctor, reducing risks overall and allowing you to benefit from the many benefits of IV therapy.

How often should I get IV therapy?

 It depends on the condition that you are looking to treat, however, to improve overall wellness, we recommend one infusion every two weeks or once per month. 

Are there any contraindications?

IV therapy is contraindicated for patients with kidney disease or heart conditions as the organs may not be able to process high concentrations of vitamins at one time. It can also interfere with electrolyte balance. Too much potassium, for example, can lead to a heart attack. Again, our IV therapy is performed by a Naturopathic Doctor ensuring that you are in the best possible hands.
