IV VITAMIN THERAPY
The basis of functional health is taking a holistic, yet science-based approach to healthcare by focusing on the individual rather than responding to a disease. Key to this is boosting the body’s defences and addressing any nutritional deficiencies that might be undermining the body’s performance.
IV Vitamin Therapy can play a crucial role in this forward-thinking, preventative healthcare mode. IV Vitamin Therapy can deliver, safely and effectively, the key nutrients the body requires, directly where they are needed.
Furthermore, our IV therapy is a bespoke treatment. Our Functional Health practitioner Melissa Cohen will perform a full assessment and carry out the necessary tests to identify any deficiencies that might be affecting your health and well-being. Your IV cocktail can then be adjusted to provide the exact vitamins and minerals that your body needs for optimum performance.
What are the benefits of IV Therapy for Functional Health?
Vitamins and minerals are key to the body working efficiently and in peak condition. Every process of the body from a cellular level up is fuelled by these nutrients so we need a constant supply, traditionally derived from the food we consume.
However, a number of factors contribute to us developing deficiencies in these key nutrients, from environmental factors, stress, poor or restricted diets and changes in our food supply that have drastically altered the level of nutrients we receive in recent years.
The aim of functional health is to ensure the body is working at peak efficiency at all times. A healthy body relies on a healthy immune system and these vitamins and minerals work hard to maintain the normal function of the immune system as well as tackling oxidative stress that causes damage to the body on a cellular level.
Supplements can help, but many of these nutrients are only safe to consume orally in small doses or, even if they are harmless in large quantities, are quickly broken down by the body and flushed out. IV Therapy is delivered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the body’s natural processes, and from there directly into the body’s cells.
What can IV Vitamin Therapy help prevent?
Vitamins and minerals are required for every process of the body and mind, including:
Which IV Vitamin Therapy is right for me?
At our Functional Health Clinic, we perform a comprehensive medical assessment, including any necessary tests, before devising a bespoke treatment programme aimed at improving your general overall health as well as focusing on any health concerns you may be suffering from or be predisposed to develop.
Our IV Vitamin Therapy treatments include the following:
Myers Cocktail – This was the original IV Vitamin Therapy treatment that is still widely used today due to its unbeatable combination of essential nutrients including calcium, magnesium, important B vitamins and vitamin C.
We also offer a High Dose Vitamin C drip; this water-soluble vitamin cannot be stored by the body so we need daily top-ups and IV Vitamin Therapy is an efficient and safe mechanism to deliver high dose vitamin C to the body.
Glutathione is another nutrient that we offer either as part of one our IV cocktails or as a standalone high dose drip. Glutathione is now considered one of the most powerful anti-oxidants at work in the body, fighting oxidative stress which has been shown to cause a number of serious health concerns.
