What is IV Nutritional Therapy?

IV Therapy is intravenous (“into the vein”) administration of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream, for immediate use by your cells.

The nutrients in the IV bag are customized based on your health concerns and wellness goals. It offers fast, specific repletion of nutrients. Our experienced Naturopathic Physicians use the highest grade nutrients, to keep you feeling your best.

Why Nutritional IV Therapy? 

  • 100% absorption: IV administration of nutrients bypasses the digestive system, achieving 100% absorption into the bloodstream.  This makes nutrients immediately available for cellular use
  • Replenish nutrients: specific nutrient deficiencies can be targeted in your IV bag, often at higher doses than what can be achieved through oral dosing - helping you replete your nutrients faster
  • All in one bag: if there are numerous nutrients required in your protocol (i.e. antioxidant and mitochondrial support, or digestive concerns with several deficient nutrients); this may be an easier solution

  • B VITAMINS (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, methylated folate, B12)
    • An important factor in hundreds of reactions, including mitochondrial support, hormone production, adrenal and energy, immune system, detoxification, and many more.
     
  • MAGNESIUM
    • Relaxes smooth muscles, a cofactor for energy production, adrenal balance, mitochondrial support, glutathione production, DNA synthesis, hormone balance.
     
  • ZINC
    • Supports immunes system, co-factor for hormone synthesis, balance, and blood sugar regulation
     
  • SELENIUM
    • Antioxidant, boosts glutathione, co-factor in thyroid hormone production

NUTRIENT SUPPORT FOR FERTILITY

Micronutrient injections, also known as vitamin injections, were designed to deliver high dose vitamins that many people are lacking.

In a perfect world, we eat healthy food, digest it properly, assimilate and absorb all of the nutrients that we need, and get those nutrients to the cells that need them.  Unfortunately, many of us suffer from micronutrient deficiencies.

ANTIOXIDANT THERAPY: OXIDATIVE STRESS & FERTILITY

Oxidative stress - we hear this word a lot when it comes to fertility, but what does it mean? “Reactive oxygen species”  (“ROS”) are chemicals generated during many cellular processes. They play a big part in our immune system, energy production within our mitochondria, cell communication, and more. When controlled, they are a necessary part of our biology. However, when the balance is thrown off, and the ROS levels exceed our antioxidant capacity, we get “oxidative stress”. 
 
Oxidative stress can be destructive; damaging to our cell membranes, enzymes, and our DNA. It can turn on genes that are “pro-inflammatory”, worsening the problem. Chronic oxidative stress has been shown to lead to a number of diseases including inflammation, atherosclerosis, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, and more.

WHAT ARE VITAMIN SHOTS? WHY YOU'LL WANT ONE

Micronutrient injections, also known as vitamin injections, were designed to deliver high dose vitamins that many people are lacking.

In a perfect world, we eat healthy food, digest it properly, assimilate and absorb all of the nutrients that we need, and get those nutrients to the cells that need them.  Unfortunately, many of us suffer from micronutrient deficiencies.  There are many reasons why - lack of vitamins in our food, lack of a well balanced/plant-based diet, an increased demand for vitamins due to high stress or excessive physical activity, or lack of proper digestion, assimilation, and absorption of nutrients.
