Intravenous therapies offered at AIM involve administration of therapeutic compounds (vitamins and minerals) directly into the vasculature system. Because they are administered into the vein, these nutrients bypass the digestive tract and as such are highly absorbed and available to target organs. This may be beneficial for those patients with compromised digestion and absorption issues, who cannot otherwise obtain maximal nutrients from their diet or oral supplementation.
What is in the IV mixture?
Some of the ingredients included in a standard IV vitamin infusion include vitamin C, B vitamins (B complex, B6, B5, folic acid), selenium, zinc, magnesium, and sodium bicarbonate. Specific concentrations and ingredients can be customized by your naturopathic doctor to fit your individual therapeutic needs.
How long does an IV vitamin infusion visit take?
Each patient is different, but we recommend allowing 35-45 minutes for a standard IV vitamin infusion visit.
All injection therapies at AIM are prescribed and administered by a licensed naturopathic doctor. If you are not a current patient of one our our naturopathic doctors and are interested in injection or IV vitamin therapy, please book an initial visit to discuss whether these therapies might be right for you!
