IV therapy is gaining more recognition as a preventative and therapeutic treatment for many health conditions. And there is a reason for this; many people are now dealing with low energy levels, increasing stress levels, environmental pollutants, poor diets, nutrient-depleted soil, overuse of medications and chronic health conditions. IV therapy offers an effective way to replenish these lost nutrients, support metabolic processes and optimise our health. Each person has unique deficiencies and nutritional needs, and IV therapy can offer a personalised treatment that targets those specific deficits and fill your body with essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. 

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a delivery method for fluids and medication. “IV” stands for intravenous, which means the fluid is administered through the veins. During an IV infusion, your body receives nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system, which would otherwise lower the amount of vitamins your body can absorb. With drip hydration, nutrients are instantly available, so your body can absorb 100% of what it needs before passing along the rest to your kidneys to be flushed out.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

When we take vitamins orally they are absorbed into the body in the small intestine, but many people struggle with digestion issues, which means not all nutrients are absorbed by the body. IV therapy bypasses the absorption process and all the nutrients get delivered to the cells. Therefore, patients tend to feel better more quickly after IV therapy.
