What is IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy is an infusion of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants delivered directly into the bloodstream. It allows higher concentrations of these nutrients to be delivered to the cells as the digestive system is bypassed. Intravenous therapy is gaining more recognition as a preventative and therapeutic treatment for many health conditions.
Why consider IV Therapy
Many of us, perhaps the majority, are regularly dealing with low energy levels, increased stress (looking at you pandemic), environmental pollutants, poor diets, and chronic health conditions. IV therapy is an effective way to replenish nutrients, support and optimize health.
Who can benefit?
Persons who might be experiencing any of the following:
- Adrenal fatigue
- Burnout and chronic stress
- Chronic Fatigue
- Poor immune function
- Athletic Support – Rehydration and Recovery
- Acute or chronic infections (colds/flu)
- Crohns/colitis/malabsorption issues
- Anxiety and depression
Is it safe?
Yes. Dr. Nadine Gavin is experienced and has delivered IV Therapy for more than 7 years. She will take a detailed health history to determine whether IV therapy is appropriate for you. In some cases, it may not be the right fit; Dr. Gavin can advise you on moving forward with other suitable approaches to optimizing your health. Generally, IV therapy is well tolerated by most patients. The procedure involves using new sterile equipment, materials, and processes to reduce the risk of infection. The equipment, products, and space have all been inspected and approved by Dr. Gavin’s governing college.
Does it hurt?
Nope – there is a slight discomfort with the prick of the needle, but that’s it.
How frequently do I need treatment?
Need will be determined individually during the consultation with Dr. Nadine Gavin.
