FAQ

Q1. HOW DOES IV VITAMIN THERAPY WORK?

A. IV Vitamin Therapy works by administration of vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This provides increased cell absorption and 100% bioavailability of vitamins via IV infusion. Booster shots are administered via intramuscular (IM) injection so there is no GI metabolism, which also allows for increased absorption. With oral supplements, you only get about 20% absorption after filtering through your digestive system, which clearly pales in comparison to IV vitamins.

Q2. HOW LONG DOES IV DRIP THERAPY LAST? 

A. After an IV infusion, the vitamins remain in your system and maintain your levels for 2-3 weeks because it is absorbed directly into your bloodstream and bypasses the GI tract.  One IM (intramuscular) vitamin booster shot is equivalent to taking one week’s worth of oral vitamin supplements. 

Q3. WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?

A. Vitamin IV drips can be of great use to anyone who is busy, short on time or constantly on the go, wanting to ensure they are maintaining optimal health and wellness.

Specifically, Vitamin IV Drips are perfect if you are:

  • A mother or busy parent

  • An athlete or sportsperson

  • An office or corporate worker

  • Looking for assistance with general health and weight loss

Q4. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE AN IV DRIP? 

A. The frequency of IV Drip therapy is determined on a patient by patient basis, we take a customised approach to suit your individual needs.

Q5. DO I NEED TO GET TESTING DONE PRIOR TO MY DRIP? 

A. No. You will not require any testing prior to a consultation however some drips do require blood works before we proceed with treatment. Please note that we do not make any medical diagnoses and our therapies are not intended to treat any medical condition. Our therapies are designed to restore balance to your body and help you maintain wellness. 

Q6. HOW QUICK WILL I FEEL THE EFFECTS? 

A. Everyone is different. As a general rule, the more deficient and unbalanced your system is, the greater and more immediate an effect you will feel. Just because you do not feel an immediate difference, doesn’t mean the therapy is not beneficial. IV therapies are the clinical gold standard in “flushing” out the body of unwanted toxins and helping achieve balance. 

Q7. WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF IV HYDRATION? 

A. IV drips introduce fluids and essential elements directly into the body with 100% delivery of benefits straight to the target organs. While IV Infusions are not meant to be a substitute for oral intake, they serve as a supplement or alternative solution to quickly rehydrate and replenish nutrients, restoring the body to peak balance. Drinking large amounts of fluids can result in a sensation of bloating and fullness that does not happen with IV hydration. 

Q8. CAN I GET MORE THAN ONE BOOSTER SHOT AT A TIME? 

A. Yes, our Booster Shots only contain natural ingredients and water-soluble vitamins. The effects of the different shots can be synergistic and any excess will be excreted naturally by the body. 

Q9. CAN I GET AN IV INFUSION AND BOOSTER SHOT AT THE SAME TIME?

A. Most of our treatments can be combined and this is the ideal recommendation. There are some drips which have to be given seperatly. IV nutrients and hydration are very effective at rapidly replenishing any deficiencies and helping the body establish balance. The Booster Shots then act as a reservoir for continuous release of nutrients, essentially prolonging the effects.
