IV Infusion / Nutritional Therapy
IV therapy may assist your immune system and improve your health. IV nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream via a drip, bypassing your digestive system to improve the absorption rate of the vitamins and nutrients.
IV Nutritional Therapies available at the Holistic Medical Centre are:
- IV Vitamin C : may aid recovery e.g. pre & post surgery, jetlag, assist with fatigue, acute infection and immune boosting.
- IV Iron (IV Ferinject / Venofer) : may improve iron deficiency states where there are issues with mal-absorption, intolerance or non-responsive to oral replacement
- IV Magnesium: may improve asthma, migraines, insomnia, anxiety, muscle cramps and fibromyalgia
- IV Zinc: may improve immune support, promote fertility and assist with mal-absorption states
You will need to be seen by one of our GPs prior to any IV’s being administered. This is to assess your needs and ensure this is the right treatment for you, check there are no clinical contra-indicators and provide additional information about what the procedure involves. Once the GP charts the IVs required you can book in to have your IV treatment at a time that suits you.
If you are not a regular patient and we do not have recent bloods on file this may involve having bloods done before the IV can be charted.
Any questions please call and discuss with the reception staff / nurse.
