What are intravenous (IV) vitamin infusions?

IV infusions involve injecting custom blended combinations of vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream.

What are the benefits of IV vitamin infusions?

By injecting nutrients directly into the blood stream there is 100% absorption. This allows us to give larger doses of nutrients than can be taken in through diet and oral supplements and it means that you’ll usually start to feel better more quickly!

What nutrients can be injected?

  • Vitamins (such as B vitamins, vitamin B12, vitamin C, biotin, folic acid)
  • Minerals (such as magnesium, calcium, zinc, selenium)
  • Amino acids (such as taurine and glutathione)

What conditions can be treated with IV therapy?

  • Fatigue & Low Energy
  • Adrenal Fatigue (burnout)
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Cold & Flu
  • Digestive Issues (IBS, Crohn’s, colitis)
  • Athletic Performance  & Recovery
  • Vitamin & Nutrient Deficiencies

Can’t I just get my nutrients from my diet and oral supplements?

Ideally, we would all get sufficient nutrients through our diet alone. Unfortunately, a combination of factors including soil depletion, impaired absorption, and chronic disease can put us at increased risk for nutrient deficiencies. While diet and oral supplements can help to correct nutrient deficiencies, this can take several months and requires constant vigilance and dedication. IV therapy provides a safe, rapid way to replenish nutrient levels while complimenting a healthy diet and oral supplements.

Isn’t it dangerous to take too much vitamins and minerals?

All of the nutrients used in our IV treatments are water soluble meaning that they won’t accumulate to toxic levels. Your body will use what it needs and the kidneys will excrete any excess through the urine.

As with all naturopathic therapies, each treatment will be customized to meet the patient’s specific needs. IV treatments can take from 20 minutes to 2 hours depending on which nutrients are required. Patients will be informed of the length of their treatment prior to booking their appointment.

IV vitamin infusions start at $110 depending on the amount of nutrients given and the length of the treatment. A portion of the cost may be covered by health insurance plans.

The frequency of treatment varies depending on the health of the patient and the type of treatment they are receiving. Generally patients undergoing treatment will have weekly or bi-weekly treatments followed by monthly treatments for maintenance.
