IV nutrient therapy is gaining a lot of popularity thanks to the media, but it by no means is a new therapy and has been performed by Naturopathic Doctors for decades.
Las Vegas is the first place to popularize this treatment as party goers found that it alleviated the groggy feeling and headaches experienced after too much indulging. Years ago, Dr. Alibhai had the vision to realize how in-demand recovery and energy boosting IVs would become so she trademarked the appropriately named “Vegas IV”. In more recent years, the medical community has jumped on board as media moguls like Dr. Oz, and The Doctors, have touted the b nefits of IV therapy. IV nutrient therapy boutiques are popping-up all over the world as knowledge and demand increase.
While the Vegas IV is one of our more popular IVs, we want you to understand that IV nutrient therapy is so much more than just a hangover cure. It has been used for decades to treat many ailments and diseases such as: MS, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, cancer, diabetes, anxiety, PMS, heavy metals, wound healing and the list goes on. The list of treatable conditions is constantly growing as more research comes out around the various uses of herbs, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
One of our top treatments at Vitalia Healthcare is IV Chelation therapy. This therapy helps to remove heavy metals from the body and restore optimal function.We have seen many patients get off their medications and enjoy increased mobility, improved energy and sharper minds. Chelation is involved, and requires commitment from the patient, but the pay off is real. Another big one is IV Glutathione. This master detoxifier is an anti-ager helping to support vision, liver health, enhance energy, clear and brighten skin, and can be used post chemo and radiation to repair and restore the body. We have many other safe and effective treatments such as libido enhancing IVs, fertility support, weight loss, collagen support, IVs for depression and formulas to help wean off certain medications.
IV Nutrient therapy can be a quick fix to help you speed through a cold, or deal with anxiety, but it is not a comprehensive treatment. At Vitalia Healthcare we strive to correct imbalances that are creating disease and dysfunction. In order to do this, we work with patients to create health plans that are easy to follow. A good health plan may include nutrition counseling, lifestyle, supplements, lab testing etc. To accommodate busy lifestyles we have brief screening visits for some of our basic IVs, but for the more complicated cases we will want you to come in for a full initial visit so we can get you on track and to establish an appropriate protocol.
If you are looking for a long-term health plan, or a quick pick me up, at Vitalia Healthcare we have the treatments and the team to help you. For more about our IV nutrient therapies go to our new site ivDRip.ca. It’s a new site, but the location is the same.
