IV Therapy FAQs
New to IV Therapy?
If you are new to IV Therapy, the cost of the Initial IV Therapy consultation and assessment is $80. During this time, our Naturopaths will review your health history, take your vitals, perform a urine analysis and, if appropriate, determine an IV treatment that is safe and suitable for your health needs. Cost of IV treatment extra.
What will an IV treatment be like?
After our Naturopathic Doctors have completed a full assessment and determined which IV combination of vitamins and minerals is right for you, they will take a few minutes to draw up all required solutions into an IV bag. A very small 3/4" needle will be inserted into a vein and our NDs will start the IV line. You can then sit back, relax, read a book or listen to some music. Our NDs will be monitoring you throughout and provide a safety bell for you to ring if you us. The IV bag will require approximately 30 minutes to drip. Our Naturopathic Doctors will take post-treatment vitals, make sure you are safe and stable to go home and provide post-treatment care instructions.
How often do I need to come for these treatments?
The frequency of treatment will depend on your condition and it's severity. Generally for acute conditions, you can receive weekly treatments for 3 to 6 weeks. For general health maintenance you can come once a month. Our highly trained and certified Naturopathic Doctors will assess your health needs and recommend an individualized treatment schedule for you.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience a sensation of heat if your IV is administered too quickly. Our trained Naturopathic Doctors will be monitoring you throughout your treatment and take pre and post-vitals. Magnesium in the formula can cause lowering of blood pressure, hence it is important to be well hydrated and eat a small meal before treatment. Bruising at the administration site, although less common, can happen.
What types of health conditions are contra-indicated for IV Therapy or are not treated at the clinic?
Our clinic does not treat cancer patients due to the complexity of the disease or pregnant patients. However, there may be other clinics more suited to treat cancer and prenatal patients. Patients with severe chronic liver, heart or kidney disease will have to have an initial naturopathic consultation first with our Naturopathic Doctors to determine if they can receive IV therapy and that it does not interfere with any medication. Please note that having an initial IV consultation visit does not guarantee IV treatment as our Naturopathic Doctors need to fully assess that IV therapy is warranted for your specific health conditions.
