About IV Therapy
IV Therapy is provided by Dr. Rahima Hirji.
Many Naturopathic Doctors have additional training and are licensed to provide Intravenous or IV therapy. IV therapy refers to the administration of substances directly into the vein. There are many benefits to this type of therapy. For starters, intravenous administration of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, homeopathics and plant-based nutrients allows for an exact dosage since it bypasses the digestive system. This means that the absorption of nutrients is not hindered by gut issues that may exist. As a result, clinical results are more effective than typical oral regimens. Also, higher doses of supplements can be administered since there is no risk of gastrointestinal upset.
Naturopathic IV treatments can be used to treat cancer, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, Crohn’s, Colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, sleep disorders, hormonal irregularities, B12 deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, decreased immunity or infection, allergies and detoxification. It is also helpful for treating heavy metal toxicity. For athletes, it improves performance, increases energy and reduces recovery periods.
