IV Therapies

Maintaining an adequate intake of essential vitamins and nutrients can be difficult, particularly when healthier foods tend to be more expensive than their processed alternatives which therefore promotes an unbalanced diet. Consequently, many people become deficient and may therefore exhibit symptoms associated with their nutrient deficiency. The Royal Wharf Clinic is committed to providing everyone with the opportunity to combat vitamin deficiency and elevate their health using the latest vitamin infusion therapy.

IV Therapies

Vitamin infusions, also known as IV (intravenous) vitamin therapy, is a medical treatment that involves delivering vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream via an IV drip. The goal of vitamin infusions is to provide the body with high doses of nutrients that may not be readily available through food or supplements, to improve overall health and well-being.

Vitamin infusions are often recommended for individuals who have difficulty absorbing vitamins and minerals due to certain health conditions, such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or celiac disease. They can also be used in individuals who are recovering from surgery or illness, or who have a weakened immune system.

While vitamin infusions can be beneficial for certain individuals, it is important to note that they are not a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. If you’re feeling under the weather or are battling a condition that prevents you from absorbing adequate amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients, then our innovative vitamin infusions may be of help. Give us a call to find out more about which vitamin infusions we offer and how we can help give your health a nutritious boost.

NEED TO KNOW

Nutritional deficits can lead to a range of symptoms such as weight loss, fluctuations in bowel habits, anaemia, malabsorption issues, and organ-related problems, some of which can be alleviated using IV vitamin infusions. Vitamin infusions can also be used to provide those looking to rejuvenate their health with the boost of nutrients their body needs to function properly. Below are a few things you should know before your treatment:

RECOVERY

Many patients begin to feel the benefits of our vitamin infusion therapy either during or shortly after the treatment. Over the few days following your treatment, you’ll feel more rejuvenized, refreshed, and revived.

You’ll need to undergo a comprehensive health check before we can prescribe your tailored vitamin infusion plan. This will be carried out during your initial consultation, in which we’ll ask you questions about your medical history and lifestyle, as well as refer you for the appropriate tests needed to gauge your potential deficiencies.

Once complete, you’ll have to register a profile onto our HIPAA and GDPR-approved systems so that we can facilitate your booking process for your first appointment and each subsequent appointment thereafter. You may be asked to sign some consent forms and fill out a health questionnaire, but our staff will guide you through these upon arriving at the clinic.
Vitamin infusions are mostly well tolerated by our patients, but like most medical treatments, they do come with some, albeit mild, side effects:

Procedure Electrolyte imbalance - higher-dose infusions may cause electrolyte imbalances that can result in muscle cramps, palpitations, muscle weakness

Damage to the kidneys - care must be taken when applying vitamin infusion in those with known kidney impairment

Nausea - the sensation of the infusion going into the veins can feel slightly weird, and some may feel sick afterwards, though this is rare

Allergy - allergic reactions may occur in some people. You must provide us with complete information about your allergies to mitigate the risks of an allergic reaction

Infection - although very rare, piercing the skin to allow for the infusion to go into the body may promote infection. We’ll do our best to sterilise the area to prevent infections from happening, but we cannot reduce the risk to zero.

Vitamin infusions cannot be given to everyone due to the increased risk of the side effects mentioned above. Those with known kidney or heart disease may be illegible for treatment, though this will be determined in your initial consultation.

FAQ

For some people, just one infusion will be enough to get their bodies back on track. For optimal results, however, we recommend a monthly infusion to maintain your nutritional needs.
The procedure is relatively straightforward. Your clinician will sterilise the treatment area in which the needle will be inserted. The needle will then be connected to the infusion bag, and the infusion will commence and last for around 30 minutes. Once complete, the needle will be taken out and you’ll be given plaster to place over the pierced skin.
No, you may feel a slight pinch as the needle goes in, but you should expect no pain whilst the infusion is running.
