IV Drips

What is an IV drip treatment?
IV stands for intravenous, which means a solution is injected directly into the bloodstream.
What makes IV drip treatment better than taking a supplement?
Usually, vitamin supplements are taken orally and go through the digestive system, which may cause gastrointestinal intolerance and often are poorly absorbed. With IV drips, the body receives the vitamins and minerals by injecting the solution directly into the bloodstream; a process that bypasses the digestive system and allows clients to feel the positive effects instantly.
Can anyone do IV drip treatments?
Yes, any healthy adults 18 years and older. If you take any medications or have any allergies, make sure to inform your medical provider before starting your treatment.
What can I expect on my first visit to get an IV drip treatment?
There will be a consultation with a medical practitioner who will advise you on which treatment is the most suitable for you. Once the treatment is selected, there are some documents to sign, as you would with any other procedure. After this, you are taken to the treatment site where you can rest in a relaxed position until the IV is ready for you. The puncture site will be sanitized, usually the cubital area, and the needle will be inserted to administer the IV solution.
Are there any side effects to IV drip treatments?
Even though our IV drip treatments are clinically tested, stability tested and its ingredients are premium and safe, everyone is unique and patients could experience the effects of the treatment differently. Unfortunately, we are not able to foresee if someone’s body particularly will have an adverse reaction, but we have made sure that all which is within our control followed the strictest regulations.
Are there any possible complications to IV drip treatments?
As we mentioned above, even the safest, most studied and tested, of medical procedures can lead to complications. The following are general IV treatment complications that can occur: • Pain or discomfort when puncturing the skin to administer the IV. • Failure to successfully place the IV catheter in the vein. • Need to switch to a different entrance site if the original attempt punctures the wall of the vein. • Bruising of the puncture area, which should dissipate on its own. • Blood clots in the superficial vein, which should dissolve on its own. • Infiltration of fluids from the IV solution through the wall of the vein into the surrounding area, which should be reabsorbed on its own. • Infection of the puncture area. • Inflammation of the vein used for injection, phlebitis, metabolic disturbances, and injury. • Allergic reactions to any of the ingredients in the IV solution, including anaphylaxis, cardiac arrest, and death.
What does the aftercare for IV drip treatments look like?
We advise the following: 1. Leave the bandage on for at least 15 minutes. After this time, most people will have stopped the small bleeding that happens after removing the needle; however, if you are still experiencing some light bleeding, replace the cotton pad with a new one and hold in place by applying gentle pressure. 2. Keep the area clean and dry for at least one (1) hour post treatment. 3. Avoid intense activity or any stress to the puncture site for 24 hours after the treatment.
How are Farsk Health IV drips made?
Our exclusive production process is novel on the market and it ensures that our products are safer than any other IV treatments available, as well as more convenient for health care practitioners and patients alike.
What IV drip treatments does Farsk Health offer?
For now, our IV line has four treatments: Immune IV Drip, Radiance IV Drip, Energy IV Drip and Boost IV Drip. This powerful quartet tackles an extensive array of health concerns.
What makes Farsk Health’s IV drip treatment unique?
Our IV drip treatments are pre-compounded and ready-to-use. The novelty of being pre-mixed makes them safer than other IVs on the market, for both the administering practitioners and the patients. More details on this below.
Do IV treatments hurt?
A needle will be inserted in order to set up the IV, so the level of discomfort is comparable to getting a flu shot.
What can IV drip treatments do for me?
The most common benefits are: improve hydration, nourish the body through vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, strengthen the immune system, enhance energy, boost the metabolism, protect against free radicals, regenerate cells, and improve skin conditions.
Why doesn’t Farsk Health offer an IV drip treatment with Glutathione?
Given that currently the type of raw materials available in the market for this ingredient are not suitable for intravenous treatments, those that have glutathione have a high possibility of adverse effects and other health risks. We don’t consider the ingredient up to our safety standards for our IV drip treatments for the time being. However, it is perfectly safe to be used in supplements and topicals through a special formulation. Our Radiance IV Drip contains instead glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine. This combination of amino acids triggers the body’s own production of glutathione, allowing for a more bioavailable utilization of this potent antioxidant from within.
How is Farsk Health’s IV drip treatment safer than other IVs on the market?
  • The bags are pre-mixed in a sterile compounding facility in Laminar Air Flow Hoods, within a sterile buffer room, compounded by trained and qualified pharmaceutical professionals. This ensures the IV bag remains sterile and virtually eliminates the risk of contamination that could occur when mixing on site.
  • They are prepared using only commercially sterile, Health Canada approved, GMP ingredients with DIN from leading pharmaceutical companies, all with indication for intravenous use and never from powders.
  • Because we pre-load the precise amount of each component in each IV bag, we have optimized the health benefits but also minimize the risk for inadvertent errors, such as mixing wrong ingredients or the wrong dosage, which can be harmful and even lethal.
  • The formulation has been assessed for stability to ensure the solution contains at least 90% (the scientific threshold) of the amount of the ingredients on the label. Stability testing also ensures a long-shelf life and guarantees these items remain intact at the time of the treatment.
  • Each IV bag is packaged in an extremely high-quality, medical-grade plastic that does not contain PVC/DEHP, a known cause of health concerns identified as plasticizer.
  • Our IV solutions are pH balanced and isotonic: the same concentration of solutes (substances) as blood in order to minimize vein and red blood cell damage.
  • Electrolyte concentrations and bag volumes are carefully chosen in order to reduce adverse effects such as fluid retention or increased urination. Specifically, sodium and chloride are minimized where possible to help reduce fluid retention post-treatment.
  • Formulations are designed to provide the critical elements such as electrolytes, vitamins and amino acids which are key building blocks to good health in the various treatment areas. We utilize the scientific literature using primary references from high-quality, peer reviewed journals as the basis for choosing the items in our formulations.
  • Nursing time is spent on taking care of the patient as opposed to compounding the solution, which allows for better monitoring and patient assessment.
Does it hurt?
A needle will be inserted in order to set up the IV, so the level of discomfort is comparable to getting a flu shot.
