IV Therapy Services in Downtown Toronto

About IV Therapy

IV Therapy is provided by Dr. Marillea Yu.

Some Naturopathic Doctors choose to receive additional training and become licensed to provide Intravenous (IV) Therapy. IV Therapy refers to the administration of nutrients and drugs directly into the vein and also includes the intramuscular (IM) administration of nutrients.

The IV or IM delivery of nutrients allows for the administration of therapeutic doses of vitamins, minerals and amino acids and at higher doses that are often not achievable via oral supplementation. IV administration of nutrients bypasses the digestive system and allows for almost complete absorption of nutrients- independent of digestive conditions and without being altered by the liver (“the first-pass” effect). This makes it an excellent therapy for those with mild to severe digestive issues, among other health conditions.

IV therapy is used in the treatment or management of the following:

  • Chronic fatigue/Myalgic encephalitis (CFS/ME) & Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Crohn’s, colitis
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Mood issues: depression, anxiety,
  • Neurological disease: Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Disease
  • Decreased immunity (i.e. frequent and/or prolonged viral or bacterial infections)
  • Sleep disorders
  • Immune dysfunction: allergies, autoimmunity
  • Heavy metal exposure & toxicity
  • Mold exposure and toxicity
  • Detoxification optimization and support
  • Surgical and dental procedure recovery
  • Cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, high blood pressure
  • Athletic performance optimization
  • Stress & burnout
  • Post-viral fatigue, prolonged infection


Your bag of IV nutrients can be further customized to address your unique health
goals and will include a blend of various nutrients in a sterile saline or water base:

  • Vitamins (i.e. Vitamin C, B5, B6, B12, B-complex blend)
  • Minerals (i.e. Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc, Selenium, etc.)
  • Amino Acids (i.e. taurine, glycine, carnitine, amino acid blend, etc.)
  • Glutathione as an antioxidant, liver and detoxification support
