Why IV Vitamin Therapy is All the Rage

IV Vitamin Therapy, you might have heard of it. It’s become a trending wellness treatment, and

there are many reasons why. From boosting the immune system to replenishing energy levels,

vitamin therapy can provide varying benefits depending on what your body needs.


Let’s dive into what IV vitamin therapy is and how it can work for you.


How It Works


By bypassing the gut and directly infusing vitamins into the circulatory system, IV therapy has a

higher rate of absorption than taking vitamins orally. This offers a quick replenishment,

hydration, boost in energy levels, and overall feeling of wellbeing.


The Benefits


Depending on what you’re coming in for, the benefits of IV vitamin therapy can vary per person.

Chronically ill patients with severe nutrient depletion can use vitamin therapy as a replenishment

tool, whereas an athlete could benefit from an energy boost prior to an event and a recovery

mechanism post-event.


A short appointment with one of our Naturopathic Physicians will help determine how an IV

treatment can best serve you.


Some of the most common conditions IV therapy supports is:

● Gastrointestinal issues (IBS, IBD, post-bariatric surgery)

● General fatigue

● Depletion due to pregnancy, severe dieting or medical dietary restrictions, surgery,

accidents, burnout, and more

● Immune support

● Chronic illness (diabetes, asthma, Fibromyalgia)

● Cancer patients (as an adjunctive and supportive treatment)

● Pre and post-Op (preparation and recovery)


What You Can Get


Our naturopaths have created some unique vitamin “cocktails” to serve individual patient needs,

so you can benefit most depending on what you come in for. Some of our favourites are:

Immune Support: The name says it all - this cocktail is great if you’re feeling a little run down or

looking to give your body a boost before flu season.


Stress Buster: Calming, grounding and relaxing, this mix is great if you’re feeling overwhelmed

or exhausted.


NAD: Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is a rejuvenating, anti-ageing, and energy-producing

vitamin mix that targets your foundational health levels.


Replenish: A patient favourite as an addition to their overall health and wellness routine.


The Treatment Breakdown


An IV vitamin therapy treatment is 45 to 120 minutes of pure me-time bliss. This is a relaxing

time for patients where you get to chill out how you like while receiving your cocktail drip of

choice.


How often you come in truly depends on each patient and can range from anywhere from twice

a week to once every six weeks. If you’re looking to maintain your overall health and wellness,

our naturopaths recommend visiting every 4-6 weeks.
