We recognize the significance of supplements and hydration in upholding a healthy lifestyle. A crucial contrast between intravenous (IV) and oral vitamin intake lies in the absorption rate. When taken orally, supplements undergo partial and delayed absorption as they pass through the digestive system and undergo filtration for several hours. Conversely, IV vitamin drips are directly administered into the bloodstream, facilitating the absorption of 100% of the nutrients within one hour or less. Consequently, immediate effects can be experienced by promptly replenishing essential vitamins and nutrients to all tissues and organs, promoting overall well-being.

The process of IV nutrient therapy begins with inserting a small catheter or butterfly needle into your veins, enabling the direct delivery of nutrients into your bloodstream. Throughout the infusion, you will be comfortably reclined. The treatment typically lasts up to an hour, and there is no downtime, allowing you to promptly resume your regular activities.
Before your initial IV nutrient therapy session, a naturopathic consultation will be conducted, encompassing a comprehensive history and physical examination. In some cases, routine laboratory testing may be necessary to ensure the safe initiation of IV therapy, customized to your specific needs and health condition. Our utmost priority is to provide you with safe and effective IV nutrient therapy that aligns with your health and wellness goals.
In short, no, fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin A, D, E, and K cannot be included in IV drips because they do not mix well with water. While IV drips are effective for delivering water-soluble vitamins directly into the bloodstream, fat-soluble vitamins are best absorbed through the digestive tract. For fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin D, intramuscular (IM) booster shots may be a more suitable and effective option. IM shots involve injecting the vitamin directly into the muscle, facilitating absorption into the bloodstream.
IV vitamin drips offer a wide range of benefits for various health conditions. They can slow down the aging process, address nutrient deficiencies, manage chronic fatigue, boost the immune system, aid in post-viral recovery, manage stress and burnout, provide hydration, alleviate hangover symptoms, support mitochondrial health, aid in post-surgery recovery, manage migraines, address hormonal issues, support fertility and pregnancy, manage digestive disorders, enhance athletic performance, promote longevity and vitality, and serve as supportive therapy for cancer care. These versatile treatments can be customized to individual needs and health conditions, complementing a comprehensive treatment plan guided by qualified healthcare professionals.
