IV Therapies at Integrated Health Clinic – What is it?
Intravenous therapy is a safe and effective means of delivering nutrients directly into body tissue and cells via direct infusion into the blood stream. IV therapy can help correct low nutrient levels by achieving blood concentrations not obtainable with oral (pills or liquid). This is realized quickly and without the potential side effects like diarrhoea, heartburn, etc. which can often accompany oral doses of vitamins and minerals. For individuals with chronic and depleted health conditions, IV therapies bypass the digestive and liver filtration systems, therefore providing a more rapid and efficient delivery of nutrients.
There are tremendous benefits to metabolism, energy, disease prevention and/or treatment to be derived from IV therapy. IV therapy has proven an effective means of addressing a variety of medical conditions and most significantly, boosting immune system performance.
Non-patients: for certain IV Therapies a 15 min screening visit with one of our Naturopathic Doctors is all that is required to allow you access to basic infusions. During this screening the doctor with review with you your medical history and your reasons for wanting to pursue this therapy. You will be evaluated for contraindications and if you are deemed suitable, an IV requisition will be prepared for your file detailing the IVs that have been approved for you. Once this requisition is in your file you can then call to book your infusion appointments at your convenience. Please note, this is not an indefinite requisition, there will but a maximum timeframe before which an additional follow-up will be required to confirm your continued suitability for the infusions.
