The Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Medical Clinic has been using Intravenous (IV) Therapies for many years as an adjunct to cancer patients, or for people who suffer from chronic or inflammatory diseases. Our staff has been well trained in intravenous micronutrient therapies and we provide a beautiful setting to relax in comfort as you receive your IV Infusion.
Intravenous Therapies provide the most effective way of delivering medicines and micro-nutrients to the body. Therefore, IV therapy has the potential for a profound effect on your health. IV nutrition is an affordable and powerful supplement to reduce the stresses of modern life and the treatment solutions are formulated and individualized to meet the needs of our clients.
IV regimens such as Myers Cocktail or other micronutrients are used in treatments of:
- Supportive care for those with cancer
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Depletion following chronic illness
- Support for tissue repair and healing
- Support for detoxification
- Heavy metal chelation
- Acute and chronic infections and many other health concerns
Other common conditions that can benefit from IV Therapy include hangovers. While it is not recommended you drink heavily, if you do, you can get a wonderful benefit from getting this IV treatment.
We also use the IV Therapies for people who are overstressed, for example, executives, IT professionals, or workaholics short on sleep. Iron infusions are given for people who have Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease or menstrual irregularity or if they are anemic. It’s a very fast way of replenishing the iron back to normal.
We do chelation therapies which can help to get rid the body of heavy metals. Immune boosting special formulas are available and improve symptoms of acute diseases, infections, anemia, auto-immune diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, headaches, longevity, prostate issues, stress, tissue repair, weight management – the possibilities are endless.
A typical treatment can take anywhere between 15 to 20 minutes for Myers cocktail, to 1-2 hours for longer IVs. Majority of the time there are no negative side effects but before the IV is done, there is testing to find out if you have any allergic reaction to it. In our clinic, we have had no patient with an allergic reaction so far. So usually it’s very safe if done properly.
