  • What does intravenous therapy treat?

    Intravenous therapy is rarely used alone; within a multifaceted treatment plan, intravenous therapy treats a wide variety of conditions and concerns. We have a wide variety of intravenous therapy options. Your Naturopathic Doctor will recommend an intravenous therapy plan based on your health history and current concerns.

  • Am I candidate for intravenous therapy?

    Only a practitioner trained and certified in intravenous therapy, can determine whether or not you are a good candidate. Within your visit, your Doctor will determine if you are a good candidate and will recommend a treatment plan.

  • How much does intravenous therapy cost?

    The cost of intravenous therapy will vary depending on how many sessions of intravenous therapy are required and what type of intravenous therapy you are receiving. Our reception can provide a quote prior to each intravenous therapy appointment.

  • How many intravenous treatments are typically required?

    The response to treatment varies, depending on the overall health of the patient, severity and chronicity of health concerns, and the type of intravenous therapy. Most people only require a few treatments, but some may require many more. Once you begin treatment, your Doctor will be able to monitor how you respond and provide a better estimate of how many treatments may be required.

  • What are the side effects of intravenous therapy?

    Typical side effects of intravenous therapy include pain, swelling, and bruising at the site of insertion of the IV. These side effects are typically transient. Your Doctor will do a full review of potential other side effects prior to your treatment.

  • Is intravenous therapy covered by MSP or Extended Health Plans?

    Intravenous therapy is not typically covered by insurance providers. Your visit will be billed through our Lab, and cannot be billed as a visit with a Naturopathic Doctor. However, we recommend contacting your insurance provider directly prior to your visit to determine your coverage.

  • Do I need to see a Naturopathic Doctor in order to receive intravenous therapy?

    You can make an appointment for a basic intravenous push (or ‘Myers Push’) without a consultation with a Naturopathic Doctor. In order to receive any other intravenous therapy within our lab, you must be a patient of one of Integrative’s Naturopathic Doctors.
