Boost Health, Energy, & Overall Well-Being

 Are you hearing a lot about IV therapy and IV vitamin therapy treatments? If so, you’re not alone. A rapidly growing number of health-seekers have found a new way to take their daily vitamins; through an intravenous drip.

IV therapy and IV vitamin therapy treatments, in medical and naturopathic circles, is called parenteral nutrition, and some promising clinical studies suggest that direct doses of nutrients can help fight various diseases, and reduce the number of nutritional deficiencies in a patient. Many Naturopathic doctors, including those at The Electra Health’s Vancouver Naturopathy Clinic, believe that a specially balanced combination of vitamins and minerals, given intravenously to patients, aids in the treatment of a wide range of ailments. IV therapy can increase a patient’s overall health, energy, and well-being.


Can’t I Just Take Vitamins?

 You may wonder why oral vitamins are not as effective as intravenous vitamin and mineral therapy treatments. Simply put, IV therapy is fast. As its name suggests, intravenous vitamin and mineral therapy treatments administer liquid vitamin solutions directly into a patient’s vein. Vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are imbued quickly into the bloodstream, guaranteeing maximum nutrient absorption.

Alternatively, when vitamins are taken orally, digestion may not extract the optimal amount of the nutrients. And for those who suffer from stomach upset after ingesting high doses of vitamins such as Vitamin C or magnesium. Intravenous vitamin and mineral therapy becomes a very attractive holistic option to provide a daily requirement of healthy nutrients.


Why Is IV Therapy Suddenly So Popular?


IV therapy in Vancouver isn’t new, in fact, vitamin infusions have been around for decades. However, IV therapy is rapidly gaining mainstream interest as a growing number of professional athletes and high-profile celebrities praise its benefits.

Health seekers, looking for preventative treatments, and natural ways to enhance their well-being, are seeking the advantages of IV treatments. More and more people are becoming familiar with the safety and effectiveness of alternative health treatments, particularly IV therapy to therapeutically treat chronic conditions.


Types Of IV Treatments 

Naturopathic doctors utilize a wide variety of formulations designed to boost immune system support. They find that variations of IV therapies aid in detoxifying, rejuvenating skin, improving circulation, and eliminating toxins and heavy metals.

Popular IV therapies in Vancouver:

  • Vitamin C:
    A strong immune system booster with anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-histamine properties.

  • One of the most popular IV therapies in Vancouver. Myers’ Cocktail is a super-cocktail of vitamins used to increase energy and treat a wide range of ailments including fibromyalgia, asthma, angina, and hyperthyroidism. A Myers’ Cocktail typically consists of magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-5, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, vitamin B complex, and vitamin C.
