IV Nutrition Therapy
Maroochydore cosmetic clinic offering IV nutrition therapy
Intravenous Nutrition therapy is the administration of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, such as amino acids, directly into the bloodstream in the form of a drip.
IV Nutrition Therapy boasts a range of health benefits, including increased immunity, energy, brain function and overall wellness. Humans don’t always produce enough critical vitamins and minerals on our own. Therefore, we try to make up for shortages with oral uptakes through diet or supplementing; this often isn’t the most effective for those suffering a nutrient deficiency. The IV method bypasses the digestive system, allowing more significant quantities of nutrients for optimal absorption. Orally administered, vitamins are often inactivated in the digestive tract or poorly absorbed. Furthermore, high oral doses of vitamins and minerals can cause unwanted side effects, such as abdominal cramps and nausea.
In particular, Vitamin C is a common deficiency. As humans, we don’t produce vitamin C in our bodies like other mammals due to the lack of a liver enzyme, so we require the vitamin through our dietary intake. However, pollution, diet changes and various other factors, such as stress, can damage the body and reduce our ability to absorb or consume these vitamins. Only the purest forms of vitamins and minerals are used in our IV administration. Biological Therapies provides our clinic with our sterile injectable products. They are an Australian-owned company that is fully licenced with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
Please Note: We do not treat excess alcohol consumption (i.e. hangovers) or drug withdrawal symptoms.
Frequently Asked Questions
Suitable clients are referred to our Maroochydore clinic by GPs and Integrative Medical Practitioners. You will have had assessment and blood tests performed prior to treatment.
An IV drip will usually take 45 minutes to an hour depending on what is being administered
IV nutrients are given through an IV drip, typically into the arm, under the supervision of a registered nurse. The drip itself is generally painless, although you may feel a sting when the needle is inserted. It may take the drip between a half hour and full hour to infuse, during which time you can relax.
While negative side effects from IV therapy are very uncommon, you may experience mild side effects, such as facial flushing, thirst or mild dizziness. We always have nursing staff on-hand to care for our clients, as well as offer support and advice when needed.
