IV (Intravenous) nutritional therapy is a form of injection therapy where vitamins (Vitamin C and various B vitamins), minerals (Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium, Selenium, and others), amino acids (L-glutathione, L-taurine, L-carnitine, L-glutamine, and others), and, other nutrients can be delivered directly into the bloodstream allowing for a 100% absorption rate.
Intravenous delivery of vitamins and minerals bypasses the gut, therefore, avoiding any absorption issues that may occur with oral intake of these nutrients, particularly if individuals have a lot of digestive difficulties and irritation in their gut.
IV solutions contain a variety of nutrients that when delivered into your blood at higher concentrations, move across your blood vessel walls into the tissues and cells of your body. It is best to be well hydrated prior to your treatment to allow for the maximum nutrient transfer and energy optimization.
IV nutritional therapy can be great for those that:
Have low energy and feeling nutritionally depleted
Are experiencing fatigue
Struggle with getting enough nutrients through their diet
Cannot tolerate oral supplements
Need some nutrients at high doses for a short period of time to help restore their health.
To obtain the most benefit from IV therapy, booking an initial naturopathic assessment is vital. This allows Dr. Suhani to review your health concerns and perform a head-to-toe review of systems to determine an individualized IV formulation as part of a comprehensive naturopathic treatment protocol for you so you can really optimize your health. This process also enables Dr. Suhani to help YOU identify and address the root cause of your health concern(s) such as a digestive or hormonal imbalance that may be contributing to your fatigue and low energy for example.
