Why IV Therapy in Bali?

We launched The Dose Bali in late 2015 with the purpose of offering the emerging service of vitamin IV therapy on the tropical island of Bali. While IVs initially became known for their hangover curing ability, the wellness and therapeutic benefits of vitamin drips are becoming increasingly popular, with clinics opening up around the world to meet demand.

Here at The Dose, to accommodate the unique needs of our Bali patients, we have created IVs to treat symptoms from Dengue fever, food poisoning, fatigue and hangovers. It was important for us that our treatments match the quality and service of those offered in western countries, so we formulated our packages with the help of an experienced doctor, and created in-house guidelines in this emerging Indonesian field that match international healthcare guidelines.

We are proud to be Bali’s first and leading mobile IV therapy provider and to have been serving the Bali community and its visitors for over a year now.

About IV therapy

Elective vitamin IV therapy is a relatively new phenomenon. One of the original IVs, the Meyer’s Cocktail has been available since the 1970s; and its efficacy in treating asthma symptoms, depression, and relieving chronic pain and fatigue have been well-studied and documented. The newer generation of IV therapies are still being researched, with more and more literature is generated every year.

In certain cases, the use of a vitamin IV is the same, if not superior to a hospital’s treatment of a condition (severe dehydration and electrolyte imbalance arising from food poisoning or hangover symptoms). The evidence to support elective IVs for general fatigue, low energy and anti-aging purposes is at this point mostly anecdotal; meaning more studies are needed to support these claims. That said, IVs are growing in use by athletic doctors and medical spas due to their impressive results in hydration, vitamin delivery and skincare benefits.

One reason for these results is that the vitamin absorption rate when administered intravenously, is far higher than when taken orally. In some cases (for example with glutathione) there is a high systemic barrier to absorption, so intravenous or intramuscular injection is a far more effective delivery method, providing no adverse reactions are present.

If patients have concerns about how an IV will work with their medical condition (especially around personalised recommended daily vitamin dosages and treatment schedule), we recommend they consult their physician before undertaking one. However for the average healthy individual IVs are extremely safe. Contact us today if you have any questions about which package is best for you.
