IV & Injection therapy is a powerful way to get you the vitamins you need fast! Not only that but they can provide you with the boost you need to beat that cold or legally give you that extra energy to run that marathon!
With IV & injection therapy, highly concentrated liquid forms of vitamins and nutrients are injected directly into muscles or veins. The most common vitamin injection is a B12 shot; it takes about ten seconds to administer and can give you an energy boost immediately. IVs can be done either by push or by drip: for a push, your naturopathic doctor uses a large syringe to push vitamins directly into your veins, over the course of about ten minutes. A drip IV takes about a half an hour, and allows for larger volumes of vitamins to be used,meaning you can get higher doses in one treatment.
Injections and IV therapies are a great way to get vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients right into your bloodstream. This means we can get you the nutrients you need to feel healthy and happy, without worrying about if you’re digestive system is absorbing them properly.
B12 shots are a great way to boost those energy levels – fast! By directly injecting this important vitamin, with or without the addition of vitamin B9, we can bypass the complicated steps involved in absorbing B12 from your food and you’ll notice the difference! You’ll feel an increase in energy almost immediately!
There are many steps required for you to properly absorb vitamin B12 from your food, and if your digestion is impaired in any way, chances are you’re not getting the levels you need to feel energized. People with celiac disease, Crohn’s or colitis, or other inflammatory bowel conditions aren’t able to properly absorb B12 and other nutrients from their diets. While we work on reducing the inflammation, B12 shots can be a great way to get this essential vitamin. Digestion is also affected by stress, and if you’re under a lot of it, a B12 shot can be a great way to give you an energy boost while we work on reducing your stress levels.
Vitamin B12 is only found in meats and animal sources, like dairy. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, you might be missing out on this important nutrient. We can help educate you on how to obtain well-balanced proteins from your diet, and in the meantime, we can get you the vitamin B12 you need, fast, so you can feel great!
Vitamin B12 injections can also be used to help relax muscles and decrease pain. Injections directly into affected areas and trigger points can provide fast relief or muscle aches and pains, and provide you with added nutrient support at the same time.
Meyer’s IVs or Meyer’s cocktails are a blend of vitamins and minerals that your body craves. Including vitamin C, B vitamins, and minerals like magnesium and calcium, Meyer’s IVs can be a great way to get high doses of vitamins directly into your system very quickly. They’re great for when you feel a cold coming on, or after an illness. Athlete’s love the boost in energy they get from a vitamin IV and if you have compromised digestion, a Meyer’s IV can be a great part of a regular routine until we get your digestive system back where it should be!
There are also many other nutrients and micronutrients that can be included in part of a custom IV designed specially for you. Things like glutathione can be a great part of a detox protocol, as this high power antioxidant is essential in getting your cells working properly. Curcumin can be given by IV as part of an anti-inflammatory protocol, and we can include the building blocks required for proper neurotransmitter function as part of a treatment for depression or other mental health concerns.
