IV Clinic

IV Therapy, also known as intravenous therapy, is the administration of delivering nutrients and hydration directly into the bloodstream for immediate absorption and use by the body.

IV Therapy is the fastest way to deliver nutrients throughout the body, because it bypasses the digestive system and goes directly into the organs, resulting in a 90-100% absorption rate (as opposed to only 20-50% possible orally).

Although the media portrays IV Therapy as the latest health craze popular among stressed urban professionals, athletes and Hollywood celebrities, the practice has existed for centuries.

When you have a Vitamin Infusion at Your Optimal Health Centre, you’ll speak with our qualified doctors and nurses first. They will ask you a range of questions about how you’re feeling, ask about your medical history and use any blood test results to ensure the infusion you receive is customised just for you.


What Are IV Therapies Used For?

IV therapy is used for many purposes including:

  • Improve antioxidant status
  • Immunity support
  • Inflammation
  • Digestion issues
  • Exhaustion

Who Would Benefit from IV Therapy?

Originally, intravenous nutrients were used mainly in hospitals for patients who were dehydrated, nutrient-deficient or unable to take medications orally.

Modern living can lower the immune system and general wellbeing, IV therapy can provide that much needed boost, making it a realistic and practical option.
