WHAT ARE IV INFUSIONS?
Intravenous (IV) therapy or Infusion therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants directly into the bloodstream to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies and help numerous health concerns. A few of the conditions that may be helped using IV nutrition techniques include hypertension, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, hepatitis and even the common cold.
What can patients expect?
The infusion will be put up and monitored by our trained registered nurses. A doctor will always be available on site for assistance if necessary. IV Therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that is well tolerated by most people. A very small ‘butterfly’ needle or a micro-catheter is used to infuse the prescribed supplements. There is a low risk of serious adverse side effects which may include a slight after-taste of supplements shortly after the infusion. Urine may also have a strong odor or color shortly after completion. Some patients may also experience a sensation of warmth and flushing or feel a cooling sensation as the IV is administered. Intravenous supplements are very safe, beneficial and easy in application.
How do I know if it’s for me?
Make an appointment to consult with one of our highly trained doctors and they will assist you in determining what IV infusion would be appropriate for you. In addition, your risk factors will be evaluated and how best to prevent any problems or conditions, that you may be susceptible to, will be recommended.
