Drip Like a Pro: A Guide on Picking the Perfect Vitamin Drip for your Health Hustle!

What is an IV drip

One of our more frequent questions we get asked is “how do I know which Drip is best for me?”. To be put simply, the best Vitamin Drip for you will depend on your individual needs, circumstances and medical history, and ultimately depends on what results you would like to see after your treatment. Although that may not seem like a definitive answer, keep reading to learn about our process before treatment as well as specific recommendations that could potentially assist you in gaining a better understanding of our Vitamin Drips, that may even provide an idea for your next treatment! 

Our Process: Upon booking your first appointment with us, you will be sent a medical personal history and medical questionnaire that you will be required to fill out before your treatment (if you are a walk-in client you will still be required to fill out these medical forms in the clinic). Within these medical forms it requires you to fill out any pre-existing medical conditions as well as any medication that you are currently taking. If you are a returning client, you will not have to complete the form again, however, you are required to look over your previous form to either confirm there are no medical changes, or to make any amendments to match your current medical history and any new medications you might be taking. This is to make sure you are able to receive your desired treatment as some medical conditions and medication may restrict you from some of our services. If you are on any medication or have a pre-existing medical condition, our in clinic medical staff communicate with our team of Doctors to ensure that you are able to proceed with your desired treatment. 

Each of our treatments come with a free consultation with one of our NMC Registered Nurses once you have arrived at one of our clinics. During this time, you will have a one-on-one conversation with one of our Nurses where you will verbally discuss symptoms, how you are feeling, where you would like to improve and what you would like to get out of your treatment. The Nurse will then go over your medical forms and based on your desired outcome of your treatment, will then recommend different Vitamin Drips or Booster Shots. At the end of the day, however, the decision is ultimately yours (medical history permitting)! 

After you have decided what treatment you would like to receive, you will be shown to one of our chairs and get comfortable (you may be there a while!). Once you are settled, one of our members of staff will take your blood pressure and temperature to make sure you are within limitations of receiving a Drip. Once you are all clear, our Registered Nurse will cannulate you and begin mixing your Drip, so just sit back, relax, and let your Drip flow! As it is common for blood pressure to increase after a Vitamin Drip, one of our members of staff will take your blood pressure again once the Drip is finished to make sure you are all good to go! 

Here are some of our recommendations based on frequent symptoms that we often see in clinic! 

If you are constantly tired/fatigued we often recommend: The Energy Drip, B12 Booster Shot and Vitamin D! Our Energy Drip contains B12 which contributes to normal energy-yielding production as well as the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. B12 may be used as a short term solution – if you experience long periods of fatigue, you may be Vitamin D deficient. Get A Drip offers an instant Vitamin D blood test that provides results in just 15 minutes! Test to see your current Vitamin D levels as well as your maintenance dose. Follow our Vitamin D plan which is one Vitamin D Shot every 2 weeks for 12 weeks and 3 months after your last dose, test your Vitamin D levels again to see improvement!

If you are looking for immune system support or suffer from hay fever we recommend: High Dose Vitamin C! Vitamin C contributes to normal function of the immune system. Vitamin C also acts as a natural antihistamine that may help reduce the side effects of hay fever. Get A Drip offers High Dose Vitamin C Drips ranging from 6.25g of Vitamin C to 25g.

If you are looking to improve skin health we recommend: anything with Vitamin C or Glutathione! Vitamin C contributes to the normal collagen formation for the normal function of the skin as well as contributing to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which aids in the scavenging of free radicals from the body cells and aims to reduce damage from oxidation. Get A Drip offers Skin Health Courses that use a combination of Vitamin C and Glutathione. Book your Skin Health Course Drip here!  

If you want a detox we recommend: The Detox Drip, the Double Detox Drip or Glutathione! The popular Detox and Double Detox Vitamin Drips contain the master antioxidant, as well as synergising B and C Vitamins. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which aids in the scavenging of free radicals from the body cells and aims to reduce damage from oxidation. Book your Detox Drip here!

If you are an athlete and constantly active we recommend: The Fitness Drip or Magnesium! Our Fitness Drip contains B Vitamins 1-6, Potassium and Calcium which contributes to normal muscle function.
