Intravenous Vitamin Therapy (IVT)
Intravenous Vitamin Therapy (IVT) was originally developed to help cancer patients whose vitamin levels had been depleted by chemotherapy. It has been the secret weapon of many burnt-out stars and celebrities.
However, these cutting edge treatments are now available to anyone who wants to experience many incredible benefits and greater sense of well-being.
Each vitamin drip provides you with a unique combination of vitamins, trace minerals and anti-oxidants which have been designed to rehydrate your body, correct any chemical imbalances, increase energy levels and assist the body to face up to the stresses and strains of modern lifestyles.
River Infusions are a quick, safe and effective way of receiving your personally-tailored concentration of vitamins, electrolytes, amino-acids, anti-oxidants and trace minerals – all in just a 30-minute treatment.
They are ideal for you if you:
- are feeling down, low in energy or have an emotional imbalance
- want to build up your immune system against colds and flu
- want to make sure your body isn’t deprived of or low in essential minerals or vitamins
- feel you need to de-stress and recharge your batteries,
- feel tired or drained due to heavy work or social commitments … and you need to keep going
- are suffering from a sports injury and need an increased boost to your recovery.
Whatever concerns you may have about your wellness, Dr Victoria and Dr Charlotte can provide you with a River Infusion treatment that is personally-tailored for you.
Your River Infusion will help your body face up to the stresses and strains of modern lifestyles.
People are unique – so are their nutrient requirements
Our signature energy drip RiverRecharge is packed full of essential nutrients designed to make you feel instantly energised.
The RiverRebound drip is powered with super high concentrations of B Vitamins and amino-acids, ideal for those with an active and sporty lifestyle.
We also have custom drips for detoxification, jet lag, weight loss and anti-ageing. There is even one for party-goers.
Every single one of our cutting edge River Infusion treatments is now available to give you a greater sense of well-being.
Whether you are male or female, young or old, have an active life style or are chained to your desk, you are unique and so are your nutrient requirements.
At River Infusions we can offer many treatment options for IV therapy, depending on individual goals. After a consultation with Dr Victoria or Dr Charlotte, personalised formulations are prepared for you, made specifically to address your nutrient requirement and health needs.
By replacing our levels of Essential Nutrients, under the expert advice of Dr Victoria and Dr Charlotte, your body can be restored to its peak fitness and maximum energy performance.
How we do it?
Each unique combination will be individually tailored to rehydrate your body, correct any chemical imbalances, increase energy levels and assist your body to face up to the stresses and strains of your life.
We offer free, no-obligation consultations as it is very important that, regardless of the procedure, you feel comfortable that you are fully-informed and have realistic expectations of the outcome.
Is it safe?
The substances used in IVT infusions are vitamins, minerals, amino acids, anti-oxidants, electrolytes and water, all of which are classified as ‘essential nutrients’ and aptly named because they are essential for life.
Essential nutrients, however, are nutrients that the body cannot synthesize on its own and therefore traditionally, they were obtained from food we eat. In modern times, however, our over-cropped soil, genetically-modified and over-processed foods mean that many of us are severely deficient in these essential nutrients.
By replacing your levels of essential nutrients, under the expert advice of Dr Victoria and Dr Charlotte, your body can be restored to its peak fitness and maximum energy performance.
Did you know?
Introducing vitamins intravenously allows for quicker, more effective absorption of the nutrients and can be 85% more effective than taking oral vitamins.
Originally pioneered by late Baltimore physician John Myers more than 40 years ago, IV vitamin therapy has been embraced by celebrities who praise its energy boosting and anti-ageing benefits.
Since then it has been used on tens of thousands of patients with very good results. Many of these results we have seen with our own patients, here at the River Aesthetics clinic.
How does it work?
During your consultation a complete medical history is taken before the vitamin drip is administered. Once Dr Victoria and Dr Charlotte are satisfied you are suitable for treatment and you are ready to go ahead, then an IV vitamin drip will be prescribed
During the treatment, your personally tailored concentration of vitamins, electrolytes, anti-oxidants and minerals are mixed with a saline solution and slowly fed into your bloodstream, to rehydrate and revitalise your body. The treatment is quick, painless and relaxing. You will also receive complimentary herbal teas, coffee and soft drinks in the IV treatment room.
All of the intravenous protocols used at River Infusions have been thoroughly researched and developed by a team of leading medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, and nutritionists.
By practicing this type of evidence-based medicine we can tailor our IVT infusions and IM boosters (immune boosters) to ensure both maximum effectiveness and minimal side effects.
85% more effective than oral vitamins
More than 1 in 3 people take daily supplements and we know they are certainly beneficial. However, few people realise that when you swallow a vitamin pill, the body’s natural absorption process can render up to 85% of that vitamin useless. In other words, when you ingest vitamins by mouth, only 15% of the active nutrients may eventually find their way into your bloodstream.
With IVT infusions the nutrients enter your bloodstream directly and immediately to help the body to begin healing itself. You get much higher concentrations of nutrients delivered directly to your body’s cells through intravenous therapy, thus allowing your body to better absorb and utilise the nutrients.
Fast delivery with fast effects
Our IM boosters take just seconds and the IV infusions take between 30 and 60 minutes, subject to your chosen infusion.
Many patients begin to feel the effects during the IV therapy. However, for best results, we recommend a course of three treatments, two weeks apart, followed by monthly visits to help you remain in peak condition.
