IV Nutrient Infusions

Introduction

IV Nutrient Infusions

Your body requires essential vitamins and minerals to grow, heal, and repair organs. Deficiency in these nutrients and antioxidants, along with stress, environmental toxins, alcohol consumption and poor diet and sleep, can all add up to a lacklustre appearance in your skin and poor health.

At The Lime Tree Clinic, we take a holistic approach by addressing both inner and outer health to enhance the cosmetic response for our clients.

We offer intravenous (IV) infusions, a simple and effective method to deliver key micronutrients to your body in order to maintain its functionality at the optimum level.

 

How does IV infusion work?

IV infusions work by infusing a nourishing fluid solution made of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants directly into a vein. Unlike oral vitamin supplements, IV infusions deliver nutrients directly to the bloodstream without passing through the digestive system. Thus, the nutrients can be absorbed by the body much more rapidly and fully than by oral intake to aid healing and overall wellness.

Is IV Infusion safe?

IV infusion is a safe procedure when done by the trained medical professionals at The Lime Tree Clinic. All the medical grade ingredients used in our IV infusions are thoroughly tested and approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration that have been manufactured to the strictest standards.

Our doctor and staff will assess your medical history, including your heart rate and blood pressure, to ensure you are deemed suitable for your individualised IV infusion.

What is the procedure of having an IV Infusion?

Our doctor must first consult with you and prescribe the type of IV infusion you need for treatment. We will then disinfect the skin over the injection site, which is often on your arm. A thin cannula is inserted which remains comfortably in your arm to allow the infusion to proceed. You may experience a warm sensation in your chest or abdomen and you may have a sensation of “tasting” the vitamins.

IV infusions generally take about 30 minutes and during the treatment, you can recline on a comfortable chair, have some complementary tea and relax until the treatment is finished.


IV Infusions aftercare

Post IV infusion symptoms are uncommon but you may experience some side effects such as light headedness, arm discomfort at the infusion site, bruising, dizziness, muscle cramps or weakness.

Being well hydrated and eating prior to IV infusions may help to alleviate any side effects from the treatment.


When I can see the treatment results and how long will it last for?

It depends on your initial overall wellness, but in general, you will feel a sense of vitality immediately after the treatment. The results will last for up to 2 weeks or much longer depending on the type of IV infusion you received and your body response. You may need more than one treatment for long term nutritional support and continued well being. Our doctor will work closely with you to design a specific treatment plan to suit your needs.
