IV Therapy & Nutrient Injections
Rebalance London Naturopathic & Wellness Clinic has been inspected and certified to provide IV Vitamin Therapy in a safe environment. We are London, Ontario's first certified naturopathic clinic to provide safe and sterile compounding for IVIT.
B12 and Folic Acid Injections
Common nutrient deficiencies of B12 and folic acid are often found in vegetarians and vegans who are not supplementing properly, the elderly and those with digestive disorders such as Crohn's & Colitis patients. B12 is especially important for the function of our nervous system and energy levels. This therapy is a single intramuscular injection of a solution rich in B12 and folic acid aimed at reestablishing proper functioning levels. We use only the active "Methyl" forms of the vitamins to ensure full absorption & utilization by the body.
Cost $18.00 and can be covered by most extended health care plans.
Intravenous Vitamin and Minerals
Intravenous administration is an effective way to administer minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Oral vitamin-minerals may not work for certain people due to the limitation of intestinal absorption and cellular transport systems. Through the use of intravenous medicine absorption can be increased dramatically and act as a supportive therapy for increasing energy, alleviating symptoms of chronic fatigue & fibromyalgia, anti-aging and speeding up recovery from illness. IV therapies are often used as a supportive medicine during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Types of IV Vitamin Therapy
Myer’s cocktails are a specific blend of B complex, B5, B6, B12, vitamin C, calcium and magnesium and minerals. This IV treatment is administered through a drip that takes 30-45 minutes and often provides patients with more energy and a kick start to the metabolism. A Myers also helps to increase stamina and performance in athletic pursuits. Older patients and chronically ill patients with nutritional deficiencies and compromised intestinal absorption often find great benefit from this therapy.
High Dose IV Vitamin C:
High Dose Vitamin C (15-65g of Vitamin C per infusion) can be used for chronic fatigue, chronic viral infections and to support patients who are undergoing chemo or radiation therapy. High dose vitamin C has been shown to reduce side effects from such treatments and improve quality of life for those suffering. G6PD testing must be done for these patients to ensure Vitamin C can be given in high doses.
These therapies are safe and effective for most people. As a part of Dr Vidmar's assessment, she will always perform a physical exam & basic lab testing (if not already done recently by your family doctor) to be sure this is safe for you. Please call the clinic if you would like to know what lab testing is required prior to receiving intravenous vitamins and minerals. We are happy to promote IV Therapy for those in or near London, Ontario.
