IV Therapy and Vitamin Injections

(available at our Waterdown location)

IV  Therapy is a great way to boost your body and get vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and other nutrients that your body lacks directly into your system quickly and efficiently.

Our IV’s deliver high-quality nutrients directly into the bloodstream where they are absorbed into your cells more rapidly than taking supplements. It’s a fast and easy way to optimize your body’s health!

The benefits of IV therapy

IV’s benefit two major groups of people:

1) Those that push their bodies and minds to their limits: intense workouts, challenging workdays or busy fast paced lifestyle. This makes each cell in your body work harder and require more nutrients to repair tissue damage, maintain mental focus, and restore energy. More than what can be absorbed efficiently by the digestive system.

2) Those whose health is in decline: organ dysfunction, malabsorption, weak immune systems or poor recovery from surgery. A body in poor health requires higher amounts of specific nutrients to heal faster and feel better. These nutrients can be hard to consume in high amounts when you’re not feeling well or already have digestive issues.

Vitamin Injections

Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D Injections

Vitamin Injections are a popular treatment choice for patients suffering from pain and illness, and in need of nutritional support. Injecting vitamins into the body bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, providing the nutrients directly into the bloodstream where it can benefit damaged or inflamed tissues quickly.

B12 Injections

Vitamin B12 deficiency is believed to be one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the world. B12 injections can be used to offset the many symptoms of deficiency such as fatigue, weakness and low mood.

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin, which means your body cannot make it. You can only get it from your food or supplements. It’s crucial for many vital functions including the production of red blood cells, neurological function, fatty acid metabolism and DNA synthesis. B12 helps to convert and synthesize many compounds within the body, making it critical for a vast amount of daily functions.

Ailments attributed to low vitamin B12 include:

  • ALS
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Anemia
  • Depression
  • Diabetic Neuropathy

  • Infertility
  • Poor Hair and Nails
  • Low Back Pain
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Memory Loss

  • Mood Disturbances
  • Osteoporosis
  • Prevent Neural Tube Defects
  • Shingles
  • Muscle Weakness

Vitamin D Injections

Vitamin D plays an essential role in bone and mineral metabolism, keeping your bones strong and healthy. It is also important in non-skeletal tissue and its deficiency is closely associated with increased risk of cancers, infections, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Vitamin D also helps to strengthen the immune system, reduces inflammation, improves mood and helps with neuromuscular functions. Despite growing public awareness of the multiple health benefits of vitamin D, epidemiological studies have revealed a very high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency worldwide. According to Statistics Canada, 7 out of 10 Canadians do not meet the suggested minimum vitamin D level for optimal health.

Ailments attributed to low vitamin D include:

  • Asthma
  • Autoimmune Diseases
