What we do
V-Tox is Intravenous Vitamin C (IV-C) infusions together with, if required, glutathione, minerals and B vitamins. Given intravenously the nutrients are immediately available to the body. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for health and healing and many conditions can deplete vitamin C from the body. The everyday stresses of modern life and the toxins we are all exposed to reduce the vitamin C levels in the body and V-Tox infusions have been designed to remedy this. This is what is called oxidative stress and vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant that combats the effect of these stresses. Similarly smoking, inflammation, infection, even driving a car all reduce vitamin C levels. Medical and dental treatments, especially surgery, all cause the body to use more vitamin C which is essential for healing.
Who can have an infusion? - Anyone 18 or over.
This is simple, ring us to make an appointment. After an appointment is made we discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have. You sit down in the infusion room and we find a vein and start the infusion. Finding a vein, even the difficult ones, is Karen’s speciality!
The whole infusion takes between 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on the amount of vitamin C in the infusion. You will be given water during the infusion and you can spend the time reading, chatting to others or whatever you wish to do.
In this day and age when food does not have the nutrient content it had in the past due to the depletion of minerals in the soil and the use of pesticides and fertilizers, you need to put back into the body the missing nutrients. The most efficient way of doing this is by the V-Tox infusions. The minerals in the infusion come in gently over the course of the infusion to immediately go where needed in the body. This has a positive effect on the feeling of wellbeing.
Having regular infusions with glutathione and minerals is a way to reduce the toxins and put back the minerals needed for health. Even in perfect health an infusion is recommended every three months to help maintain a good level of health. We have been doing this ourselves for years as a future health insurance policy.
The vitamin C is prepared using Ringers solution which is similar to blood plasma.
