IV Nutrient Therapy
Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy is a safe and effective method for treating many health concerns, illnesses and nutrient deficiencies.
When delivered intravenously, vitamins, minerals and amino acids bypass the digestive system which allows for high therapeutic doses of nutrients to reach every cell in the body. This treatment speeds healing from the inside out so you can feel better, sooner.
The first IV nutrient therapy was known as the ‘Myer’s Cocktail’. Our IV’s are improvements or modifications to this original treatment. The IV you receive will be customized to your needs and health goals.
IV nutrient therapy consists of customized combinations of electrolytes like magnesium, minerals like zinc, selenium and calcium, B vitamins, vitamin C, amino acids and antioxidants. Patients commonly do these treatments to support immune function, improving energy and stress resilience, recovery from athletic events or surgery, as well as wellness.
After performing a brief consultation the Naturopathic Doctors at Qi will tailor your treatment to your particular needs.
Aside from the initial poke of a small needle on your arm, receiving intravenous therapy is a comfortable experience. Most patients report a feeling of relaxation and warmth and look forward to their next treatment. While receiving treatment, you can listen to music, read a book or simply lean back and relax in our IV and post treatment lounge.
