What is IV and IM Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) and Intramuscular (IM) therapy are injection techniques used to deliver safe, fast, and reliable treatments to those with a variety of conditions as well as those who are already healthy.
Why use IV and IM Therapy?
IV and IM therapy provides a more direct route of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients through the blood stream. As such, it offers the advantage of faster and more complete absorption when compared to other routes of administration.
This route bypasses what’s called first-pass metabolism in the liver, which accounts for the improved absorption. This is an important consideration for patients with poor gut absorption or inflammatory gastrointestinal conditions, as they cannot absorb supplements well through oral administration.
Is IV and IM Therapy Safe?
IV and IM therapy is administered by our trained and qualified Naturopathic Doctors. They have gone on to complete advanced IV therapy training courses and have years of experiencing using IV and IM therapy with a spectrum of conditions.
What conditions can IV and IM Therapy help with?
Many different conditions are improved with this treatment. Some conditions that are improved include:
- Lyme disease
- Mold biotoxin illness
- Pre and post surgical procedures
(including dental procedures)
- Inflammatory bowel diseases
- Immune dysfunction
- Acute colds/flus
- Adrenal fatigue
- Increased stress
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Chelation therapy
