Langley IV Therapy
Relax. Rehab. Revamp.
IV therapy is a great way to bypass the digestive tract to get nutrients directly into circulation. For this reason, IV therapy is a great choice for anyone with compromised digestion (such as Crohn’s, Colitis, Celiac, bowel resection, etc.). It can also be a great adjunct treatment for fatigue, post-infectious support, pre-conception prep, nutrient deficiencies, sports recovery, and poor immune function.
Treats common areas like:
Effectively restore energy, elevate your immunity with a pause.
How to prepare for IV Therapy
The morning before your IV make sure you hydrate! This is important for the health of your blood vessels and for ease of IV insertion. You’ll also want to make sure you have eaten something. This is especially important if you are someone who gets queasy at the thought of needles. Also, make sure you are wearing something loose comfortable, as most IV appointments last about 60 minutes, and Dr. McGuire will need access to your arm.
What to expect from IV Therapy
Before booking in for an IV appointment Dr. McGuire will do a naturopathic intake to get a full health history and make sure IV therapy would be beneficial for you and that there are no contraindications. Your IV appointment will also be an hour long, so make sure to wear comfortable clothing and bring with you a book, iPad, or smartphone (or you can just take a nap!). Dr. McGuire will do a quick check in, take your vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure, etc.) and start the IV. She’ll also offer you water as well as a heating pad, as sometimes the arm can get a bit chilly after a few minutes (this is because all nutrients are stored in the fridge). After your IV, it’s not uncommon to feel very energized, but some people experience the opposite and get quite relaxed and sleepy. It all depends on how your body uses the nutrients once it gets them.
Each 1-hour session includes:
IV Therapy That Fits Your Needs.
After your IV it’s important to take it easy. No heavy lifting for 24 hours, and drink lots of fluid to flush all of those good nutrients through. You will likely notice your urine looks as bright as Mr. Clean cleaning solution, but don’t panic! This is normal (due to all of the B vitamins). Dr. McGuire will go through all of the aftercare with you in the clinic and make sure you don’t have any unanswered questions before you leave.
