IV Vitamin Therapy: Could Your Nutrition Use a Boost?

Most people are aware of the importance of getting proper vitamins and minerals to stay healthy. With our busy lifestyles, it’s easy to fall short. On top of that, almost everyone suffers from dehydration throughout the day—if you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated!

IV vitamin therapy provides the nutrition your body needs and helps you keep hydrated too! This type of infusion not only addresses dehydration and cell nutrient absorption, it boosts energy levels in the process, and fights the effects of toxins and free radicals. And, because the nutrients are 100% bioavailable, your body uses nearly all the nutrition provided.

What Issues Can It Address?

  • Brain Fog
  • Complete Rehydration
  • Allergy Relief

What Does the Experience Entail?

Dr Nick with drip IV nutritionI decided to give the Myer’s cocktail a try which was a mixture of Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Zinc and hydration solution. It cost around $300 which included a discount for a first time user.

It was administered by Drip IV, Australia’s first and leading mobile therapeutic healthcare company specialising in intravenous vitamin therapy. Drip IV offers several formulations to support a healthy immune system, improve memory function, boost energy, and improve athletic function and recovery.

A registered nurse who specialises in IV vitamin infusions using TGA approved vitamins came to see me at home and set up the IV. The session took 45 minutes from start to finish. I felt good immediately and the following day. But I got ill five days post-infusion – not sure if this was as a result of the therapy or related to something else.

While I did not have the best experience, many people take advantage of IV vitamin infusions on a regular basis. It may also be useful when nutrient levels are dangerously low, affecting the body’s function. I am considering potentially doing a Vitamin C infusion 5 weekends in a row for a boost once a year, but still undecided.

Should You Try It?

Please note that Dr Nick is not an expert on IV vitamin therapy, and he is not actively encouraging anyone to get their vitamins intravenously. He is just sharing his thoughts on his own experience, in case it’s of interest to others who may be considering this option.

If you have more questions about this therapy, please don’t hesitate to give Drip IV or your healthcare provider a call.
