IV therapy in Victoria, BC is performed so that the vitamins and minerals can be injected directly into the vein
Vitamins and minerals provide the nutrients required by our cells to function properly. Usually, these nutrients are acquired through our diet – however, in many cases, nutrients don’t actually reach our cells due to a variety of reasons such as: poor digestion, low activity of the immune system, food sensitivities, inflammation or any type of ailment. IV therapy is performed so that the vitamins and minerals can be injected directly into the vein, thus bypassing the gastrointestinal system so that they can be readily absorbed. This makes IV therapy faster acting and often more effective than orally administered therapies. There are numerous conditions that can be improved by IV therapy including:
Cold and flu
Irritable bowel syndrome
Post surgery healing
Our IV therapies are tailored to each patient’s individual needs by altering the types and amounts of nutrients in them. Common ingredients in a standard IV include Vitamin C, a blend of B vitamins, calcium and magnesium.
