In association with IntraVita and Dr Jacques Otto, this course is designed to provide practitioners with a thorough understanding of IV Nutrition Therapy, as well as the ability and confidence to implement various IVNT protocols.
What is IV Therapy and what are its benefits?
IV Therapy is the method of using an IV drip or booster shot to administer a combination of nutrients, vitamins and minerals to the body. It is quickly becoming an extremely popular treatment as it allows for much higher concentrations of nutrients to enter the bloodstream directly, therefore allowing the body to better absorb and utilize these nutrients.
IV infusions can be specially formulated so that they specifically address a patient's needs. Whether a patient feels that they are lacking in energy, suffering with a low immune system or even wish to detox and burn fat, there are various different treatment options available to them.
IV Infusions include;
- Athletic performance
- Immune booster
- Vitamin B12
- Detox/Fat burning
- Mood support
What does the IV Therapy course involve?
The training is a comprehensive seminar presented by Dr Jacques Otto from IntraVita. The day will start with an introduction to Intravenous Therapy, including the theory behind it and the various factors and elements to consider when doing a treatment, such as safety, complications and the many types of vitamins and nutrients that can be incorporated into an IV infusion. Following lunch, delegates will get the opportunity to experience an IV treatment themselves, as well as learning how to correctly administer the drips and booster shots.
