Intravenous Infusions and Intramuscular Booster Shots
Adequate fluid balance is paramount to health and maintenance of mind and body. Just 2% dehydration can cause significant loss of productivity and create stress on the body and result in the release of free radicals which can have numerous harmful effects. Common reasons for dehydration are decreased water intake, too much sun exposure, illness, increased water loss and alcohol consumption.

Reviv helps restore equilibrium through vitamin infused therapies and intramuscular booster shots.
Treatments will only be carried out after a full medical consultation and after a medical history is taken and only then if the treatment is suitable.
What areas can be treated?
Intravenous (IV) treatments are infused with anti-oxidants, vitamins and a combination of prescription medicines. Reviv also offers vitamin/anti-oxidant intramuscular (IM) booster shots.
How does the treatment work?
Oral intake of fluids, vitamins and nutrients must first undergo absorption from the intestinal tract and subsequently pass through the liver where they may get metabolised and broken down before even entering the blood stream. It is for this reason that only a fraction of orally ingested products actually get delivered to their target. Reviv therapies enter the body directly, ensuring 100% reaches the place they are needed.
Various mixtures have been created based on research and decades of clinical experience and contain electrolytes, vitamins, anti-oxidants and other compounds with one purpose, to help detoxify the body, balance electrolytes, and hydrate various cells and body organs.
Is it safe and does it hurt?
Over 35,000 Reviv treatments have been performed to date with no major complication. A medical history is completed before any treatment to ensure the patient is suitable for the procedure. IV treatments require cannulation of a vein which can cause some discomfort, similarly intramuscular injections can causes some stinging. Most of the possible adverse effects relate more to the procedure rather than the drugs administered. Potential risks include infection, extravasation (leakage of the infusion outside of the vein), superficial thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the vein caused by trauma), haematoma formation (blood clot at an injection site), vasovagal reactions (fainting) and rarely allergic reactions.
Are there any side-effects?
Side-effects are rare as the treatments although some are not suitable for treatment and these include patients with heart or kidney problems, blood clotting problems, neurological conditions, uncontrolled diabetes, recent trauma, unexplained fever or illness, shortness of breath or the elderly.
What can I expect after treatment?
Every patient is different and experience slight variations of the effects from the treatments. Most report a sense of wellness, increased energy and productivity within 2-4 hours and lasting for several days. However all improvements are subjective and no guarantee can be made regarding individual patients.
