Frequently Asked Questions
Intravenous therapies, also known as infusions or drips, represent a “cocktail” of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, antioxidants and other beneficial substances for intravenous administration. Depending on the patient’s needs, medications with anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, metabolic or other therapeutic effects can be added to them. Dut to their intravenous administration, the useful molecules are transported directly into the bloodstream and guarantee 100% absorption and rapid saturation of the body.
During intravenous therapy, a fine abocate is placed, through which a previously prepared solution with substances flows. In this way, the body effectively receives large amounts of essential macro- and micronutrients and cellular metabolism is enhanced.
Boosters are single substances for injection. They are a supplement to an individual or already ready-made formula and are applied to compensate certain insufficiencies or deficiencies or when it is necessary to introduce pharmacotherapy (medicines for treatment or prevention of certain conditions).
The composition of the infusions is based mostly on the individual needs of each patient. A consultation and blood tests should be done in advance, which determines the combinations of substances. An important part is the information from the examination – the patient’s goals, allergies, etc.
The frequency of the IV therapies depends mostly on the initial results, as well as on the wishes and goals of the patients. A package of procedures is usually recommended in order to achieve a long-lasting effect.
Chronic diseases require constant care from the patient. For this reason IV therapies are recommended regularly at certain time intervals.

Infusion treatment is not aimed only at filling proven deficiencies. Venous therapy is carried out in order to prevent the complications of some chronic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus for example. Through the intravenous introduction of various molecules, detoxification of the liver, easier and faster recovery from various infectious diseases, energy charging and others can be achieved.
Usually, the patient directs himself to a certain type of therapy, and the doctor modifies it in terms of content, according to the results of laboratory tests and physical examination.
Intravenous therapy lasts up to 2 hours, depending on its type. The Clinic also offers booster doses of vitamins and other healing substances, which are administered intramuscularly and take almost no time.
The side effects of this type of therapy depend on the individual reactivity of the patient. Usually, the side effects are only positive, but some patients experience short-term nausea, dizziness. Diuresis is activated, which is usually a desired effect.
Through the Doppler ultrasound examination, the direction of the blood flow in the vessels can be established and, through special formulas, the corresponding calculations can be made and the absence or presence of plaques in the vascular system can be assessed. Vascular risk is assessed more objectively and appropriate therapeutic decisions are made.
Intermittent fasting is a healthy method of losing weight, which also has other benefits – anti-aging, reduction of elevated insulin levels, cardio-metabolic effects. This way of eating is increasingly practiced and is considered relatively easy to follow. However, it is not suitable for everyone. For some people, especially those with gastrointestinal problems or diabetics, prolonged fasting can do more harm than good.
The most important thing for a diet is to be consistent with the rhythm of a person’s life. For this purpose, we handle special questionnaires that show us how the patient lives, what preferences he has, and we try to get as close as possible to his lifestyle and taste preferences.
Weight loss is a task that usually requires a complex approach. Intravenous infusions can have a draining effect, speed up the metabolism and support the weight loss process, but they are not the main way of body reduction.
Each diet is tailored to the individual characteristics of the patient. In other words, if the patient suffers from any disease, the diet is adapted in such a way as to improve the condition and contribute to faster recovery or to prevent exacerbations in the chronically ill.
Man is made of body and soul, so called – psyche. Taking care of mental health, perception and sense of self is key to the course of illnesses and the effect of any therapy.
We are used to associate the specialty “Medical Oncology” only with visits to hospitals and the appointment of various chemotherapy regimens. Patient support in an outpatient setting is of key importance for the outcome of the disease. The medical oncologist can monitor the condition of their patients, help them get through the disease and overcome the side effects of oncotherapy, and follow patients in remission.
The orthopedic consequences of being overweight are numerous and are mostly related to the higher load that the joints have to withstand. The higher the weight, the more strain on the joints. Often patients neglecting their weight first go to an orthopedist, from where they are referred to obesity specialists, because knee pain is a side effect of being overweight, and therapy is primarily related to weight loss. Assessment of the musculoskeletal system is key in order to provide adequate movement recommendations.
Arterial hypertension is a socially significant disease. Almost every overweight person has high blood pressure. In order to determine how to administer an infusion to a person with hypertension, the cardiologist’s evaluation and laboratory tests are important in the first place.
The health of our metabolism depends on many external and internal factors, complexly interacting. The evaluation of the metabolism accordingly requires a complex approach and a comprehensive assessment by various specialists – primarily endocrinologists, cardiologists, nutritionists.
Examination with an endocrinologist begins with a conversation about the current complaints and the reason for the patient’s examination, physical examination, measurements of various devices to assess metabolism and segmental composition of the body, ultrasound, appointment of laboratory and imaging studies and appointment of therapy.
An examination with a nutritionist includes a conversation with the purpose of taking an anamnesis, assessing the nutritional status of the patient, measuring various devices, appointing tests and creating a therapeutic nutritional regimen.
