Weight Loss IV Therapy
During weight loss the goal is to increase energy output and support fat metabolism. It’s also important to balance hormones, optimize sleep, manage stress levels and ensure adequate nutrient intake despite a lower calorie diet. Providing the proper vitamins and minerals intravenously can help boost energy and metabolism to kickstart and maintain weight loss.
Vitamin B12 and B6 are the main nutrients in our Weight Loss Boost IV. We also add vitamin B5 to support your adrenal glands and stress levels. Apart from vitamins and minerals, this IV also contains a mix of acetyl-l-carnitine and other amino acids. Acetyl-l-carnitine supports utilization of fat for energy by helping the transport of fat into cells to be used for energy. It also helps preserve glycogen stores in muscles, meaning it shifts utilization of fat over carbohydrates which can increase exercise performance. You may be able to increase your exercise regime with less sore muscles afterwards.

How to Book a Weight Loss IV Treatment
All IV patients are required to have a 1st IV therapy visit prior to booking specific IV treatment. Your first IV therapy session is designed to review your goals and to ensure that IV vitamin therapy is safe and effective for you. Your Naturopathic Doctor will assess your overall health, your treatment goals, and your medical history to ensure your safety and to ensure the vitamin drip best-suited for you is recommended. During the first visit, an initial mini IV will be given to assess your tolerance to IV therapy. If IV therapy is deemed a positive addition to your healthcare regime, your doctor will have you go for blood work to assess liver and kidney function. Once we have your blood work, we can proceed in booking your next Weight Loss IV appointment.
