Intravenous Vitamin Therapy

intravenous dripIntravenous vitamin therapy (IV therapy) is a safe and efficient way of introducing therapeutic doses of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients into the body. IV therapy is an integral part of our Naturopathic services at Naturmend.

IV drips can include varying amounts of B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, zinc, selenium, trace minerals, amino acids and other essential nutrients. A treatment typically lasts between 30 minutes – 3 hours depending on the type of IV administered, and is performed by a highly trained naturopathic doctor in a comfortable clinic environment after doing a complete medical history and assessment of your health.

Benefits of IV therapy:

  • Optimizes immune health
  • Assists in managing autoimmune diseases
  • Helps with chronic illness and infection
  • Aids in treating intestinal conditions (Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, celiac, malabsorption)
  • Improves athletic/sport performance and recovery time
  • Aids in treating fibromyalgia and migraines
  • Helps manage allergies on the level of the immune system
  • General health

Types of IV Therapy treatments offered at Naturmend:

  • Glutathione IV

    Our bodies make glutathione, an antioxidant, to help get rid of reactive oxygen species or free radicals. When the magnitude of free radicals passes a certain threshold, disease can occur. Glutathione works against these free radicals and is beneficial for liver disease, heavy metal/toxin elimination, neurological and many other health conditions which require additional antioxidant support.

  • Methylsulfonylmethane IV

    Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an anti-inflammatory agent that has anti-oxidant effects in the body. MSM is beneficial in a variety of inflammatory conditions such as: joint disorders, autoimmune conditions and gastrointestinal inflammatory disorders.

  • Phosphatidylcholine IV

    Phosphatidylcholine has neurological benefits and can help with cognition, memory deficits, brain fog and may improve overall focus.

  • Alpha-Lipoic Acid IV

    Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a potent anti-oxidative agent that has been shown to be most beneficial in restoring nerve function and helping to manage neurological health in chronic infection and diabetes.
