Question: Question from Kesia

I would like to know more about intravenous vitamin treatments. When should I opt for this?


Simply put, IV Infusions are high-quality vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which are injected directly into the blood stream and gradually introduced to achieve optimal levels.  Each drip contains a specific cocktail that is based on the individual needs of the patient.  Oral supplements are also prescribed to maintain the results.

IV Infusions may show beneficial results for conditions such as anxiety and depression, colds and flu’s, general strengthening of the immune system, detoxification of the body and may even show improved results in chronic conditions such as heart disease, neuropathy, poor circulation, arthritis, candida infections and digestive disorders as well as degenerative diseases and cancers.

With ‘drip bars’ popping up on every street corner, it is nearly impossible for the consumer to know if the procedures followed are above board. It is imperative to put your personal safety first when having intravenous vitamin transfusions, always check that the establishment meets the necessary criteria and has the equipment clearly visible. A consultation with a medical doctor is essential before any IV infusions to rule out any contra-indications.
