About IV Therapy
Injection & Infusion Therapy in Halifax & Dartmouth
What is IV Therapy?
Vitamin infusions are used as an effective way to replenish certain vitamins and minerals. They are ideal for those who have digestive issues that prevent absorption, or for preventative reasons for certain conditions. Infusions are generally safe, but those with cardiovascular, liver, or kidney issues may not be eligible for a treatment. Each patient’s IV needs are unique and based on their health condition(s).
Vitamin injections are for those looking to optimize their nutrient levels and reduce symptoms quickly. These intramuscular (IM) injections are absorbed from the muscle into the bloodstream at a higher absorption rate than oral supplements passing through the digestive tract.
The following vitamins, minerals, and nutrients are most commonly used in IV therapy:
- Ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
- Dexpanthenol (vitamin B5)
- Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
- Methylcobalamin (vitamin B12)
- B-Complex (mixture of B vitamins)
- Magnesium chloride
- Calcium chloride
- Amino acids, trace minerals, and glutathione
IV therapy is administered by a naturopathic doctor, and is often covered by your private health care plan.
