B12 Booster Injection
Do You Need a B12 Booster Injection?
Naturopathic doctors who have passed their prescribing exam by their regulatory board have the ability to provide IV therapy and intramuscular injections. They consist of high-dose vitamins and minerals that can correct nutritional deficiencies, support immune health, slow signs of aging, and boost energy. If you are considering this type of IV therapy, consider working with us at the office of Dr. Natasha, ND.
One of the most popular injectables that we offer is vitamin B12. This vitamin is important for the production of red blood cells and the ongoing completion of other cellular processes. It is commonly deficient in the general population and is something to look out for in people who are vegetarian or vegans, have gastrointestinal issues, or do not have the ability to methylate (found through genetic testing).
Due to the importance of this vitamin, a deficiency in B12 will show up as a general dampening of vitality. You'll typically feel tired, and it may take longer for injuries to heal. Other problems, such as anemia and problems with the tongue or lips, appear if the deficiency is severe enough.
Because of this, Dr. Natasha will often test her patients’ blood and then administer a B12 booster injection for patients showing any of these symptoms. As with many nutritional deficiencies, correcting a B12 deficiency will bring improvement at a surprisingly fast pace. While it may not be immediate, you'll likely feel better within days and continue to improve as long as your B12 levels stay good.
This is just one of the vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can be corrected through injections or IV therapy. As a Toronto Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Natasha, ND will also provide an eating plan to help you ensure that you get enough nutrients through diet. If needed, nutraceutical supplementation may also be recommended to correct levels more effectively. To learn more, just reach out to us today.
