Intravenous administration of medicines and nutrients bypasses the digestive tract allowing for much higher concentrations of medicine to be absorbed. This is useful if there is a nutritional deficiency.
Conditions that may benefit from nutritional intravenous therapies include:
- Inflammatory bowel diseases (such as Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis)
- Celiac disease
- Chronic fatigue
- Patients struggling with frequent infections
*Patients must be under ongoing care of a naturopathic doctor to receive IV treatments. IV referrals from other healthcare providers are accepted. Please email our office to request an IV referral form.
