Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy
Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a safe and efficient way to deliver vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream for optimal absorption. The administration through an IV allows for these key nutrients to bypass the digestive system, which can be very beneficial in patients who have sluggish or impaired gut function. Nutrients are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream and are able to impact the body’s physiology in a direct and fast-acting manner.
These treatments are used to support a variety of conditions and to maintain optimal health and wellness.
All IV Therapy options are formulated by licensed and regulated Naturopathic Doctors at the Centre for Collaborative Health, who have undergone additional training and regular upkeep of continuing education to be certified to conduct IV therapy. The top therapies listed below will be customized to suit your body’s particular needs and state of health, assessed through a complete intake, physical exam and laboratory testing.
