IV Vitamin therapy 101

IV Vitamin therapy 101

From Madonna to Rihanna, Cindy Crawford to most of the NFL, IV vitamin therapy is becoming increasingly more popular amongst celebrities and pro athletes.  But you don’t have to be a superstar to benefit from the health effects of IV Vitamin therapy!

What is IV Vitamin therapy?

IV vitamin therapy is a method of administering high doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants to the body in a safe and effective method.  It is an alternative to oral supplementation for people who require higher doses of nutrients (people with high stress, athletes, immune weakness, chronic illness etc.), people who have problems absorbing their nutrients (people with celiac, Crohn’s disease, IBS, food sensitivities) and for people who are feeling run down and need a little extra boost (anyone you know?)

Benefits of IV Vitamin therapy:

IV vitamin therapy is beneficial for many health conditions and concerns including:

  • Fatigue
  • Immune weakness
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Dehydration
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Chronic illness such as cancer and autoimmune disease
  • Headache and migraine
  • Acute infections
  • Depression
  • Hangover (yes it’s true!)

What can I expect during my treatment?

For many people the thought of a voluntary IV can be a bit intimidating.  Before your IV you will sit down with a doctor to discuss your health concerns and goals.  Based on your medical history, relevant lab work and current health status the doctor will determine what vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants are best suited to treat your individual needs. 

At the IV Wellness Boutique we have created a spa like setting with comfortable reclining massage chairs, wireless headphones and movies to allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy your treatment (which will last approximately one hour).  Our patients are pleasantly surprised how painless our butterfly needles used for IV administration are and comfortably enjoy their drip while relaxing in their chair.  Even the most faint at heart come back for their second IV!

There is no substitution for a healthy lifestyle but if your body needs a little support IV vitamin therapy is a great option!
