You may have experienced an intramuscular injection from a medical doctor at some point in your life, perhaps from getting a vaccine like the flu shot. If you suffer from multiple sclerosis or certain types of arthritis, you’ve certainly experienced an intramuscular injection.
However, naturopathic intramuscular injections are different than what you would receive from a medical doctor.
What Is A Naturopathic Intramuscular Injection?
A naturopathic intramuscular injection is an injection of a special cocktail of vital nutrients your body needs directly into your muscle tissue. This can be helpful in restoring what your body is lacking in and can be used to treat certain illnesses as well.
The more observant among you may have noticed Dr. Simona offers intravenous infusion therapy as well. What’s the difference?
Intramuscular Injections Are Quicker
First of all, intramuscular injections are much quicker. Rather than an IV drip which generally lasts from 15 to 90 minutes, an intramuscular injection is over in a few seconds. So if you’re in a rush, or you’re not a big fan of needles, intramuscular injections are a nice way to get the process over with more quickly.
Intramuscular Injections Can Relieve Tense Muscles
Intramuscular injections are often used to relieve tension in trigger points.
If you have knotted muscles, an intramuscular injection of magnesium can go a long way toward relieving the tension.
Good For Single Nutrients
If you happen to be deficient in a particular nutrient, intramuscular injections may help boost your levels more quickly and efficiently than intravenous injections.
Common nutrients people are deficient in include:
Iron, Magnesium, B5, B6, B12
If you’re particularly deficient in certain nutrients, an intramuscular injection may not be effective and you may need to explore an intravenous infusion. Dr. Simona will help you decide which is right for you.
Good For People With Poor Veins
If your veins have been damaged, they may be difficult to access for intravenous infusion therapy.
In cases like this, intramuscular injections can be a viable alternative.
Dr. Simona will help you decide whether intramuscular or intravenous injection of essential nutrients is best for you.
Good For Weight Loss
If you’re trying to lose weight, intramuscular injections may help.
Through a specific cocktail of amino acids, known as MIC (Methionine-Inositol-Choline), can help your body break down and eliminate excess fat and cholesterol.
When coupled with a weight loss or cardiovascular health regimen, intramuscular injections can support you in your weight loss and fitness journey.

Benefits Of Intramuscular Injection Therapy
Intramuscular injections can help with a number of different conditions.
If you’re deficient in a particular nutrient, they can help by restoring optimal nutrient status.
They can also be used to treat infections, chronic fatigue, and can play a supportive role in helping you deal with certain types of cancer.
Bypass Your GI Tract
The reason they can be so helpful is because some conditions can affect your body’s ability to absorb nutrients through your digestive tract.
But in one of nature’s cruel ironies, it’s your body’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients from food that gives it the tools it needs to fight these conditions in the first place.
If you have one or more of the following conditions, your digestive system may be compromised, and you may benefit from intramuscular injection therapy”
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Ischemic colitis
- Microscopic colitis
- Celiac disease
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Through intramuscular injection therapy, we can bypass your digestive system altogether and create a higher blood level of the nutrients your body needs.
If you’re an athlete, you demand more of your body than the average person.
Whether you’re a weekend warrior, an Olympian, or somewhere in between, you naturally want your body to perform at its peak. Intramuscular injections may be able to help.
When it comes to performance, intramuscular injection therapy can provide you with the nutrients and antioxidants your body needs to increase your performance, burn fatty acids for fuel, and encourage the growth of muscle mass.
And once you’ve completed a competition, another cocktail of amino acids, minerals, and natural anti-inflammatories can replace lost electrolytes, help your muscles recover, and overall decrease your recovery time so you can get back in the game sooner.
Those who have suffered a sports injury may see benefit from intramuscular injections as well – by providing your body with the nutrients your body uses to build tissue – like proline and ascorbic acid – we can encourage collagen production in your body with the goal of easing pain in your joints and repairing any connective tissue which was damaged.
