Headache & Migrane IV Therapy
Nausea, light sensitivity, muscle tension, headaches? If you experience migraines or tension type headaches this IV formula is for you. There are multiple natural therapies to help prevent migraines and should be taken orally for 4-8 weeks before they take effect. However, IV therapy can provide rapid pain reduction during a migraine episode as well as be used to help prevent migraines and headaches.

Our No More Headaches IV formula contains magnesium, a mineral which has been shown in multiple studies to benefit migraine symptoms and reduce the need for injection pain and nausea medications. We use a specific form of magnesium, magnesium citrate, which may stay in the body longer than other forms of magnesium (GABY’s book). We also add other nutrients such as calcium and B vitamins to help enhance the efficiency of magnesium. One B vitamin in particular, riboflavin aka vitamin B2, has been shown to prevent migraine symptoms when taken orally, this is also in our IV formula as part of a B complex.
How to Book a Headache & Migrane IV Treatment
All IV patients are required to have a 1st IV therapy visit prior to booking specific IV treatment. Your first IV therapy session is designed to review your goals and to ensure that IV vitamin therapy is safe and effective for you. Your Naturopathic Doctor will assess your overall health, your treatment goals, and your medical history to ensure your safety and to ensure the vitamin drip best-suited for you is recommended. During the first visit, an initial mini IV will be given to assess your tolerance to IV therapy. If IV therapy is deemed a positive addition to your healthcare regime, your doctor will have you go for blood work to assess liver and kidney function. Once we have your blood work, we can proceed in booking your next Headache and Migrane IV appointment.
