Vitamin IV's are one of our favourite health care offerings - they provide benefit for a wide range of health concerns from fatigue, migraines, endometriosis, pain relief, immune support, detoxification, athletic recovery, to name a few. We love offering alternative solutions to your health concerns, aka Vitamin IV's are a match made. We're going to break down some of the reasons why our Naturopathic Doctors love IV therapy and hopefully answer some of the questions you may have:
Each Vitamin Drip is Customized To You
Think of vitamin drips as personalized vitamin cocktails tailor-made for your body's needs. Our typical base is Vitamins C, B12, B5, B-complex, and minerals magnesium and calcium (which we can modify if it is required!) These nutrients help promote better function at a cellular level - this is ultimately where we make energy, fight infections, recover from injuries or times of elevated stress, and so on. We work with you to identify your health goals and take a bigger look at your overall health, and determine areas that require support. In doing so, we may choose to add additional herbs, vitamins, minerals to your IV bag so that it becomes a mix designed to help you get where you'd like to be health-wise.
Boosting Energy and Vitality
If your body was a car, would you keep driving if the tank was empty or push it far past a service date? There are certainly times in life where we don't have a choice and we do need to push ourselves, but the important thing is that there are breaks between times of intensity where we can recover. Anyway, inevitably you have to fuel up and get an oil change - and the human body is exactly the same. If over time you are stressed and running on empty, not giving your body the nutrients it needs to make energy and support overall vitality, you get used to functioning at more fatigued levels. The other thing is that when we're stressed, we use up B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin C, and more. Here is where IV drips come in: they replete vitamins lost during times of stress and exhaustion, and help support the immune system, energy production, and overall recovery so you can have more energy and feel more well!
Supporting Resilience - Physically and Mentally
Vitamins play a crucial role in supporting our immune system and mental health. Remember the cycle we just talked about, where stress depletes our vitamin levels, which makes us more run down and less able to combat the physical effects of stress, which lowers our resilience. This can manifest as getting sick more often, having digestive issues flare up, or noticing anxiety or mood instability increasing - just a few examples. Vitamins help us make neurotransmitters, chemicals that influence our brain and mood. When we don't have the building blocks of neurotransmitters, anxiety and depression can increase, so can mood fluctuations. And again, when we're run down and without the proper resources (vitamins) to help our bodies push through, we're more likely to get sick because our immune system doesn't have the vitamins it needs to combat germs/infections.
They Don't Hurt, and You Can Multitask or Relax
We know that needles aren't for everyone and we completely get it! Since the IV is dripping for 45 minutes or so, we want to make sure you can get comfy in the chair and relax, read a book, work on your laptop, or continue whatever you were doing. How we do this: after inserting the needle, we remove the needle which leaves a "cathalon" in your arm, which is a flexible plastic tube, so you barely feel it in your arm!
If you're not sure where to start but are curious about IV Vitamin Therapy, we recommend booking an Initial Consultation with one of our Naturopathic Doctors where they can assess your overall health and make specific vitamin drip recommendations.
