IV Vitamin Therapy
In some cases, as little as 15% of the nutrients in the foods we eat make it into the bloodstream.
IV vitamin therapy was once used as a secret weapon by the rich and famous to combat burnout and exhaustion, and we’re delighted to have made it available to our patients.
Whether you’re in need of an energy boost or simply want to experience an increased sense of wellbeing, we can create a personalised IV formulation that is safe and scientifically proven to deliver results.
How IV Vitamin Therapy Works
Nutritional deficiency is not uncommon, yet a deficit in just one key nutrient can impair one’s health, and undermine recovery. Conversely, nutritional abundance gives your body many of the raw materials it needs to heal and thrive.
It can be hard to achieve optimal nutrition through diet alone. Even on a healthy diet, much of the nutrient content from our food can either remain undigested in the gut, or is not absorbed through the gut wall into the bloodstream.
IV nutrition therapy overcomes these nutritional limitations by completely bypassing the digestive system. IV therapy puts key nutrients directly into the bloodstream, making them readily available to be used by the body.
IV Therapy at Private GP: What to Expect
With the help and training of Intravita who have vast experience in this field, we are able to thoroughly assess people before administering IV nutrition treatment, in order to minimise risk.
Before receiving the intravenous drip, we will ask you to complete a comprehensive health questionnaire, and you will receive feedback from a doctor. Depending on the results of the questionnaire, a series of blood tests may need to be carried out before the intravenous therapy can be given.
The appointment for receiving the intravenous drip is 1 ¼ hour with our nurse, overseen by the doctor. Everything is closely monitored medically and, based on your health questionnaire answers, we will also give you a short report highlighting any potential future actions you might want to take.
IV Vitamin Therapy Options
Everyone is unique and so are their nutrient requirements. We offer a range of intravenous vitamins, minerals and amino acids to fit your specific needs, all administered at the practice.
