Hydration IVs in Edmonton
TruMed offers "banana bag" IVs for dehydration
Our Naturopath clinic uses custom rehydration formulas in our IV Therapy Lounge.
We use vitamins, and electrolytes in a custom Banana bag IV, to rehydrate you quickly.
In Hospitals, patients with alcohol use disorders or alcohol withdrawal, are often prescribed “banana bags” or “rally packs” at admission to the ICU.
Our Naturopaths usually add additional Riboflavin (B2) which is orange, and Methylcobalamin (B12) which is pink, so our Banana Bags are usually more orangey red that banana yellow.
One IV bag is used.
Long length for administration: 90-120 minutes.
Large volume IV
Balanced with B Vitamins & Electrolytes
Athletes, Dehydrated patients and even Edmonton's partyers can get this hydrating Banana Bag IV.
We've taken your typical Banana bag IV, jazzed it up with higher doses of Vitamins and Vitamin C and offer it to the public.
Our Naturopath clinic uses custom formulated nutrient based rehydration formulas to Edmonton.
For dealing with alcohol withdrawal your TruMed Naturopath may suggest IV NAD as it can be beneficial for alcohol and opioid withdrawal. Additional Thiamine (B1), Niacinamide (B3), Vitamin C are key nutrients other than NAD that can be helpful in reducing intoxication and decreasing delerium tremens.
Interestingly enough, there is data that suggests that consumption of a form of Vitamin B5 called Pantethine can reduce hangovers substantially. So, if you are not able to make it to the clinic for a Banana bag IV, your TruMed Naturopath may suggest oral Pantethine to reduce likelihood of hangover.
We waive consult fees for first time Banana Bag hydration patients.
