What Is IV (Intravenous) Nutritional Therapy?
Many of these people suffer from nutrient deficiencies and other imbalances that can be helped through IV therapy. This treatment is a unique and powerful option that is very useful for certain conditions because it achieves better results, faster.
IV nutritional therapy may be for you if you want to enhance your energy, improve your overall health, treat specific medical conditions, or maintain optimal health and work on preventing future conditions. IV vitamin therapy can replenish the nutrients your body needs for optimal health.
Traditionally, intravenous nutritional therapy has been used in hospitals to help patients rehydrate or restore nutrient deficiencies. This treatment is now popular and can be administered by a qualified practitioner. Intravenous nutritional therapy has been given a boost in popularity thanks to a celebrity following.

The Benefits of Nutritional IV Therapy
When we take vitamins in a traditional manner, that is, by the mouth, they travel to the stomach and intestines, but they don’t get absorbed entirely. With IV drips the vitamins go directly into the bloodstream which means they are absorbed better
IV Vitamin Therapy is good for:
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Stress and burnout
- Pre and post-athletic event/ Performance
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Acute viral/bacterial illnesses and colds
- Migraines & tension headaches
- Macular degeneration
- Chronic disease
- Chronic or acute muscle spasms
Are there any risks With IV Therapy?
The risks are minimal if you listen to a qualified and experienced practitioner. As none of the vitamins are lost during the absorption process or excreted through urine there is a possibility that you will be given a too-high concentration. According to the Mayo Clinic, taking in too much vitamin C, for instance, can lead to stomach issues, including cramps and diarrhoea.
If you have medical conditions or are on other vitamin supplements or medications, then you really need to check with your healthcare provider to be sure you’re not going to get anything that will interact with something you’re already taking.
