What is IV therapy? IV therapy stands for “intravenous vitamin therapy”, which is a therapy that delivers vitamins and nutrients directly into a vein and the bloodstream. What kinds of vitamins are administered? Is IV therapy safe during pregnancy? Who should get IV therapy or avoid it? All these questions and more will be answered in our IV therapy FAQ.
IV therapy is a great option for you if you have digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome or leaky gut; if you are very athletic and want to regenerate your joints and fluids; and if you are concerned with age management and hormone therapy. It is also helpful to restore important vitamins and nutrients in those who are undergoing treatments that drain the body of them. It also works as a preventative measure for the common cold, by boosting the immune system. If you are looking for a way to increase your vitamins and nutrients and reap the benefits immediately, IV therapy is more effective than oral supplements.
If you often feel tired and struggle with sore muscles, dehydration, and stress, it may be a sign of nutritional deficiency. Since the average person does not get enough nutrients from their diet, and since many jobs lead people to live sedentary lives, there is a greater need to boost our nutrient intake. IV therapy is a great way to flood the body with important nutrients and vitamins for optimum health. If you feel any less than 100%, you could benefit from IV therapy.
Too much of certain vitamins or minerals can increase the risk of adverse effects. For example, if you have kidney disease, your body tends to hold onto certain electrolytes and minerals. If you take an IV cocktail that has too much potassium, it could lead to a heart attack. If you have certain heart or blood pressure conditions, there is also the risk of fluid overload from the infusion. Therefore, it’s important to talk to your doctor before undergoing any IV therapy treatments, especially if you have pre-existing conditions. It’s also important to choose a reputable clinic with certified nurses administering the treatment.
Most IV therapy sessions range from 45 to 75 minutes in length. You will be comfortably seated as you receive the infusion and you can read a magazine, watch a movie on the television screen, make a phone call, or take the time to rest and think. Depending on the needs of each patient, you may be required to schedule one or two sessions per week for a few weeks until your body has improved from the treatments.
Here are the four types of IV therapy options we provide:
If you are pregnant, it is important that you have an evaluation from your family doctor to make sure that you are cleared for the therapy. You should also consult with the practitioner who will be administering the IV solution to you. They should examine your vitals, allergies, past medical history, and your reason for visiting to ensure that you do not have a bad reaction. It is critical that you choose a clinic with nurses that have experience with IV administration.
IV therapy costs anywhere from $200 to $350, plus tax per session. It depends on the treatment or cocktail you choose, and the number of sessions required. When you purchase a package (more than one session or more than one cocktail) at the Anti Aging Toronto Clinic, you’ll benefit from additional savings and discounts.
Wondering how often you should to IV therapy? The frequency and number of sessions for your IV therapy treatments depends on your specific needs. Most patients require one to two sessions per week for several weeks. Other patients only need three treatments before they notice a positive change in their bodies. Most report exceptional healing by the fifth or sixth infusion.
