IV Drip Migraine Relief For Feeling Better

Everyone who has ever experienced migraines is aware of how disruptive they can be to your life. In addition to light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and excruciating headaches, it can keep you from taking care of your family, working, and having any sense of a normal life.

In fact, the World Health Organization places them as one of the ten most disabling medical illnesses. If prescription oral medications haven’t been working, you may be wondering about alternative treatments. Would infusion therapy help?

Intravenous infusions (IV therapy) can provide respite from migraines in several ways. They provide hydration, electrolytes, and vitamins that are delivered directly into your bloodstream.

This means faster and more effective relief than taking oral medications. IV therapy also quells overactive nerve endings, as well as targets each individual symptom — inflammation, pain, and nausea — at the same time.


Some of the key benefits for migraine and headache relief are:

  • The nutrients can help decrease neuroinflammation reducing pain
  • Provides antioxidants and detoxification for cellular repair
  • Helps reduce the need for pain and nausea medications

      Key Ingredients

      After an initial consultation to understand your specific needs, we customize an IV therapy plan for you. Typically the formula contains:

      • Vitamin C
      • Magnesium
      • Calcium
      • Trace Minerals (Chromium, Copper, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc) 
      • B Vitamins (B1,B2, B3, B5, B6, B12)
      • Amino Acids (which promote cellular repair and optimal function)

      Additional Nutrients

      To help specifically with Migraine and Headache relief, an IV Drip will include the following:

      Additional Vitamin C – Vitamin C can act as a prophylactic agent against migraines as it has shown to reduce the risk of neuroinflammation after injury to the brain. This means it can target the inflammatory pathway to the brain that is associated with migraines.

      Riboflavin (B2) – Vitamin B2 is effective as a prophylactic agent for migraines, meaning taking it prior to the onset of a headache or migraine can result in pain relief. This is the most researched vitamin to reduce the pain associated with migraines.

      Magnesium – Magnesium has shown to benefit migraine symptoms in multiple studies. It reduces the need for pain and nausea medications associated with headaches and migraines. The American Headache Society claims magnesium is as close as it gets to the “miracle” headache cure. It has shown results in both acute onset treatment as well as for maintenance long term.

      Glutathione – Glutathione helps detoxify the body and brain by clearing toxins and oxidants, which can be associated with migraines. It’s high antioxidant capacity can provide relief from headaches and migraines. Low levels of glutathione have been explored as a potential cause for migraines.

      Frequency of Treatment:

      Your frequency of treatment will depend on individual aspects gathered in your initial Naturopathic health consultation. 

      In general, the recommended frequency for migraine and headache support is weekly or bi-weekly for 4-8 weeks, while monitoring your progress and adjusting accordingly.
