Why would a Naturopathic Doctor use Intravenous Nutrient Therapy?

IV therapy, is also referred to as nutrient therapy because it delivers high doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other substances into the body. IV Nutrient Therapy administration allows the clinician to bypass impaired gastrointestinal absorption of nutrients and to more efficiently stimulate the various biochemical processes inherent to immune response and healing. Moreover, IV administration of a substance allows for a greater ability on the part of the clinician to individualize and control dosages, not to mention the ability to offer larger dosages of a desired substance as compared to oral administration. The rapid absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream is then delivered to our cells in a hypertonic solution. There are various customized treatment plans available at Oakville Naturopathic Wellness Centre and that are designed by our Certified IVIT Practitioners, Dr. Shiva Jamshidi, ND and Dr. Nyla Jiwani ND - Naturopathic Doctors.
