IV Therapy - Vitamin and Mineral Treatments
What is Intravenous I.V. Therapy?
Intravenous Nutritional therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other natural therapeutic substances directly into the bloodstream through a vein. Clinical studies continue to show that IV nutritional therapy not only improves general health and overall well-being, but can also help in the prevention of a wide variety of chronic health concerns.
Why do I need I.V. Therapy?
IV vitamin therapy delivers high doses of vitamins, minerals and amino acids in combinations to help support a variety of conditions including sleep, immunity, hydration and much more.
How does I.V. Therapy Work?
I.V. therapy delivers the formulation, whether hydration fluids, vitamins or minerals, straight to your veins, thereby bypassing the digestive system which can break them down before they can be used.
Our I.V.'s at Tonume Integrated Health typically take anywhere for 45 minutes to an hour to administer so that our patients have a chance to sit back relax to escape from our daily routines.
What to expect following a treatment:
You may experience soreness and bruising at the sites of injection. You will likely experience an aching sensation or tightness for the following few days as your body’s inflammation cascade responds to treatment. Do not take any NSAIDs (Advil/Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Celebrex) or cortisone injections, as these will block inflammation and counteract your treatment. If a pain reliever is required, you may take Tylenol/Acetominophen at a maximum dose of 1g daily. You are encouraged to avoid any new or ballistic activity for at least one week following treatment. This is very important to avoid further injury and allow for healing to occur. In other words, don’t plan any ski trips or hockey tournaments immediately after!
