Not all IV treatments are created equal

Not all IV treatments are created equal

There once was a time when getting an IV infusion treatment outside of an emergency room seemed like a strange idea. Now, however, many have come to realise the very real benefits of getting a mega-dose of wellness delivered directly into their veins. IV infusions aren’t just for burned-out celebrities or CEOs with hangovers. Today, they’re the most bioavailable type of supplement on the block! Because they bypass your gut, something that often doesn’t absorb nutrition the way it should, you get the entire dose of goodness with no wastage. 

Being completely customisable, the IV infusion treatments offered at Health Renewal can address a myriad of health conditions that range from helping your body fend off a virus to supporting your cardiovascular system. You can even use IV infusion treatments to brighten your skin and improve the condition of your hair, skin and nails! This is achieved thanks to glutathione, nature’s mega-antioxidant that’s notoriously difficult to get from food.

But beware, there is no going back 

Once you come to realise the many benefits of IV infusion therapy, it’s only natural that you’ll want one. But not so fast! Not all IV infusion treatments are created equal. Due to their excellent results, their popularity is growing and so is the number of fly by night clinics only too happy to hook you up with, well, anything really. Just a little while ago, a wellness company in the United Kingdom was forced to withdraw an IV treatment promising to improve fertility. They were charging over R5000 per treatment and yet they couldn’t produce a scrap of evidence that it worked! 

Also, whichever way you slice it, an IV infusion is still a medical procedure. If you wouldn’t trust your hairdresser to snip off a mole, why would you be happy with a skincare therapist inserting a needle into your veins? This is why it’s imperative that you only ever receive an IV infusion from a registered doctor or nurse. You’ll also want to have a full consultation with a doctor beforehand to ensure that you’re a candidate for the treatment itself. 

Please leave it to trusted professionals  

As we said, not all IV infusion treatments are created equal, so don’t mess around when it comes to your health. If you want to benefit from the treatment, make an appointment to see a doctor at Health Renewal. We’ve been administering IV infusion treatments for many years under the most stringent conditions (Medical Controls Council guidelines).

To help you out, we’ve created a checklist of all the conditions that must be met for an IV infusion treatment to be considered a responsible choice. Naturally, we adhere to every single point. 

  • A full medical examination is required before any IV infusion. This treatment isn’t a “one size fits all” solution, but a personal prescription. 
  • IV infusions must be administered by a qualified and registered nurse or doctor. 
  • A doctor is to be on-site during your session. They should have an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certificate, and life support equipment should be on hand in case of an emergency. 
  • You should know the EXACT contents of your infusion. 
  • IV infusions need to be produced in a sterile compounding laboratory so make a point of knowing the source of your drip. All the items used in your treatment must be sealed and sterile. 
  • All invoicing must be done by medical practices only. 

Feel the difference once you go direct

Ultimately, IV infusions, when administered under the strictest regulations by a very experienced doctor or nurse, are a brilliant way to enhance your health. So, if you’d like to reap the rewards, don’t ever take a risk. Instead, make an appointment to chat with one of our experienced doctors at any of our Health Renewal branches nationwide. Together, we can help you look and feel your best using proven and potent nutraceuticals administered in a way that always puts your safety first - always.
