IV Vitamin Drip Therapy in Saskatoon
Nutritional IV therapy can deliver nutrients in greater amounts than would be able to be absorbed by the gut, and over shorter periods of time. The “Myers Cocktail”, originally designed by Dr. Myers, is one of the most common and standard IV therapies as it can be used for a wide variety of applications and is quite safe and well tolerated. It includes Vitamin C, a complex of B-vitamins, Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium and Zinc. We also offer intravenous glutathione, NAD, and amino acids.
IV therapy is offered by Dr. Jacqui Fleury, ND at the True Potential Health clinic in Saskatoon. Based on a consult with your naturopathic doctor, the IV therapies may be recommended as part of your treatment plan.
What Can IV Therapy Do For Me?
Speed Up Recovery
Whether you’re a professional athlete or just love to be active and feel good energy, recovery is the name of the game. IV therapy can help your muscles, ligaments, nervous system and immune system. Up to twice a week under a heavy workout regime, pre and post endurance sprint (marathon), or if you just need some extra speedy recovery- these are all great applications for doing IV’s.
Vitamin C in medium doses can be great to ward off infections, and giving it with Selenium, Zinc, B-vitamins, and Lysine can help your immune system manage bacterial and viral infections better. IV therapy twice a week can help if you’re acutely sick, or need to keep something at bay temporarily, and 1-4x per month is often recommended if you’re looking for general support.
Boost Energy Levels
On the whole, people generally feel better after receiving a Myer’s cocktail IV, and sometimes we also add an Amino Acid blend (Travasol-C) for added general support. Some of our patients reserve these for periods of excess stress (exams, busy work seasons) and find they can persevere much better than without them.
