What is IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) Therapy infuses vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients directly into the blood stream. Compared to oral supplementation, IV therapy can be superior because it bypassed the digestive system. It ensures optimal absorption of nutrients into the cells quicker and more efficiently.
The EBL Approach
At EBL, IV therapy is used as part of our comprehensive restoration programs, whether it is for Adrenal fatigue, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, or Hormone health. When combined with other therapies including dietary adjustments and nutritional supplementation, IV therapy can help our patients feel better, faster.
However, many of our patients come in for IV therapy as a stand alone therapy as well.
What are the benefits?
Vitamins, minerals and amino acids are vital in the proper functioning of every part of our body. Poor digestion, inflammation and stress can cause increased demands for nutrients by our cells. By directly infusing nutrients into the blood stream, IV therapy can be beneficial for improving fatigue, adrenal function, immune function, athletic recovery, detoxification, headaches, macular degeneration, malnutrition and chronic illness.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
An IV infusion generally takes about 45min to an hour. An initial Naturopathic intake is required prior to the first IV, in which we go through a through health history and discuss which IV blend will be right for you.
