Intravenous (or IV) Therapy involves the insertion of a small cannula into a vein in your arm. Nutrients are delivered into your bloodstream via a drip, bypassing your digestive system and drastically improving the absorption rate of the vitamins you are receiving. Some of the vitamins we use at Sydney Integrative Medicine can also be given to patients via a needle directly (or intra-muscularly).
Intravenous vitamin therapy can improve your health during times of high stress, recovering from illness or if you are feeling sluggish all the while supporting your immune system and boosting your overall health. Depending on your individual requirements, our Integrative GP’s can tailor your therapy so that you receive the maximum benefit of the nutrients.
The process firstly involves a consultation with one of our Integrative GP’s to assess your situation and provide additional information about what the procedure involves. If you are identified as being able to benefit from the therapy and you have consented to us performing the treatment, we can often provide the treatment at the same time (meaning that there are less waiting periods and disruptions to your schedule).
