What are the benefits of Vitamin Infusions?
Vitamin Infusions are a powerful immune system booster with anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-histamine properties. Vitamins helps the body recover from inflammation, thrombosis, infection, fatigue and with post surgical healing. They play a role in heart and brain functions as well as our bodies immune system.
Increasing your vitamin intake by eating more of certain foods or by taking oral supplements can lead to a healthier lifestyle, however not all of the required vitamins and minerals actually penetrate into the blood. More importantly there may not be enough of the essential nutrients that are needed during illness, high stress or for a person who is recovering post surgery. A Vitamin Injection can go directly into your blood stream where all of the nutrients can be readily absorbed by your body to speed up the healing process.
The powerful cocktail of high-volume vitamin C is delivered straight into my blood stream using the Intravenous Therapy (IV) delivery method. There is no downtime, but I have noticed that you do need to rest afterwards. There is almost a feeling of disorientation, and lightness afterwards (and I felt slightly nauseous during the drip) – maybe driving home wasn’t a good idea after the first big 60 g dose. However, after my third ‘load’, which takes close to two hours to administer, it has become easier to take and there are no more negative side effects. I was advised to have two drips a week, for about 4-6 weeks. It costs $ 225 each time, but if it works, it’s well worth it. The clinic in Manly, who administers the drip, has very experienced and caring nurses and a professional set-up, where everyone is friendly and I’ve met a variety of other IVC recipients: women recovering from Chemo, getting help for lymes disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, recovering from different illnesses and diseases. I was quite surprised at the big variety of uses for Vitamin C.
