IV Nutrition Therapy
What is an IV Drip?
Since the 1960s practitioners have been sing Intravenous Nutritional Therapy with incredible results. IV drips are aimed at improving the sense of physical, mental and emotional well-being and optimum health and wellness. They are targeted to support the immune system, as an aid to anti-ageing, for energy enhancement and improved athletic performance as well as improvements in general health. Research shows that 90% of people are nutrient deficient and 50% of those people are already taking multivitamins.

Is Intravenous Nutrition Therapy Safe?
The substances used in IVNT are Vitamins, Minerals, and Water, all of which are classified as ‘Essential Nutrients’. It’s an apt name, as they are ‘essential’ for life, however they are also nutrients that the body cannot synthesise on its own. Traditionally they were obtained from food we eat, but modern food is often modified and over processed, leaving many of us severely deficient in these essential nutrients. By balancing our levels through IV infusions, under the expert advice of one of our healthcare physicians, our bodies can be restored to peak fitness and maximum energy performance.
How does an IV Drip work?
Who is suitable for the treatment?
Most patients are suitable for this treatment however an assessment will be carried out during your consultation.
When can I expect to see results?
Most patients will feel well immediately after completion of their first IV therapy and go on to feel a sense of general wellness and increased energy for several days.
Does it hurt?
There is no pain, just a mild discomfort during the insertion of the needle in the arm. Sometimes the arm may feel slightly cold during the IV treatment.
Is there any downtime?
Minor side effects from this treatment include bruising and tenderness at the needle insertion point, with potential for inflammation of the vein (thrombophlebitis) due to the cannulation. These should be temporary and normally resolve in two or three days. Some people may feel a little faint or light headed immediately after treatment and need to wait before leaving the clinic. Various complications can occur both during and after intravenous cannulation including pain, difficulty introducing the cannula, arterial puncture, blood clot formation, infection and necrosis. Rarely an allergic reaction could cause anaphylaxis.
What happens during the treatment?
You will have a consultation with our practitioner to discuss your areas of concern and what may be the best drip for yourself. Once decided you will be offered a wide variety of IV drips.
