IV Vitamin Therapy is a concentrated delivery of vitamins, minerals and amino acids (the building blocks for protein) directly into your bloodstream, skipping the digestive tract. This intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver nutrients easily utilized by all cells throughout the body, as they are carried through your circulatory system. It is also an effective method for fluid replacement.
IV Vitamin Therapy is a tool that enables your doctor to safely and efficiently provide you with high dosages that your body would not be able to accept through oral supplementation alone.
Vitamin Therapy Drips can be used both proactively to maintain optimum wellness and also to treat acute and chronic conditions. You will consult with a licensed Naturopathic Doctor to determine the right combination of nutrients for you.

Why take vitamins intravenously instead of in food or pill form?
In today’s world we aren’t digesting and absorbing nutrients like we used to. Increased demand (chronic stress, athletics, pregnancy, travel, bacterial infections, chronic illness), decreased nutrient density and malabsorption are affecting what is getting into our body and replenishing it. Things that are affecting our ability to digest and absorb the nutrients in our food include acute and chronic stress, excess or deficient stomach acid, intestinal inflammation (IBS, IBD, Crohn’s), ulcers, allergies, diarrhea and the list goes on.
Who is it good for?
IV Vitamin Drips can be used both proactively to maintain optimum wellness and also to treat acute and chronic conditions. Anyone can benefit from IV therapy but some more likely candidates or conditions include: athletes, adrenal fatigue/ insufficiency, common old, weak immune system, fatigue, hormone imbalance, low mood, digestive disorders, skin issues, heavy metal build-up, brain fog, upper respiratory tract infections and many more.
What are the benefits?
– Increased energy
– Enhanced mood
– Improved sleep
