Intravenous (IV) Therapy

Replenish, Rehydrate, Revitalize

What is intravenous nutrient therapy?

Nutrient IV therapy delivers vitamins, amino acids, minerals and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system.

Why Choose Us for IV Therapy

Hawthorne naturopathic physicians will recommend and prescribe IV therapy when we feel it is medically beneficial. We do not have fixed recipes, but rather formulate the IV based on your specific health needs and concerns. All intravenous therapies are administered by naturopathic doctors specifically trained in IV therapy.

What to Expect

A consultation with a naturopathic physician to go over your health history and concerns is the first step. It is important that we understand your goals, know if you have allergies and are on medications and/or supplements. This information allows us to carefully consider whether IV’s are appropriate, formulate the IV, ensure your safety and answer any questions your may have. It may be necessary to do baseline blood testing prior to doing IV therapies.

Book a free 15-minute meet & greet consultation with one of our naturopathic physicians to explore if IV Therapy is the right treatment for you.

Preparing for your Visit

Our IV treatment room is a shared space with comfortable lounge chairs. It is generally quiet, with others reading, listening to music or on their ipads. If you require privacy please let us know in advance and we can accommodate.

We have tea and water but we encourage you to bring a snack. The day of your treatment we ask that you eat a protein based meal or large snack about an hour before arriving and that you are well hydrated. Do not exercise heavily within 2 hours of your treatment.

Intravenous therapy is not painful. You will feel a small prick of the needle at insertion and then it’s time to relax. There is bell right beside you if you need the attention of your doctor at any time throughout your treatment.
