The composition of the infusions is mostly based on the individual needs of each patient. A consultation is done beforehand and tests are assigned, based on which we determine the combinations of solutions we use. An important part is also the information from the examination- the patient's goals, allergies and so on.
Often taking medication in the conventional way - orally - proves insufficient or ineffective. Patient goals are more quickly, easily and effectively achieved by introducing solutions, macro- and micronutrients, vitamins and minerals peripherally - through a venous vessel. The intravenous route of administration of substances bypasses their metabolism primarily through the liver as well as the gastrointestinal tract altogether, allowing for quick and effective management of specific problems.

IV therapy lasts up to 2 hours, depending on its type. Regina Life Clinic additionally 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 in some patients’ short-term nausea, dizziness is observed. Diuresis is activated, which is usually a desirable effect.
By means of Doppler ultrasound examination, the direction of blood flow in the vessels can be ascertained, and by means of 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 solutions are given.
Intermittent fasting is a healthy weight loss method that has other benefits- anti-aging, reduction of elevated insulin levels, cardio-metabolic effects. This way of eating is increasingly practiced and considered relatively easy to follow. However, it is not suitable for everyone.

The most important thing for a diet is to be adapted to the rhythm of a person's life. For this purpose, we use 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.

Arterial hypertension is a socially significant disease. Almost every overweight person has elevated blood pressure. In order to assess how to act infusion on a person with hypertension in the first place, the cardiologist's assessment and laboratory tests are important.
The health of our metabolism depends on many external and internal factors interacting in complex ways. The assessment of metabolism therefore requires a complex approach and a comprehensive assessment by various specialists- primarily endocrinologists, cardiologists, nutritionists.
Examination by an endocrinologist begins with a discussion of the patient's current complaints and the reason for the examination, a physical examination, measurements on various devices to assess metabolism and body segmental composition, ultrasonography, the appointment of laboratory and imaging studies, and the appointment of therapy.
Examination by a dietician includes a discussion with the aim of taking a history, assessing the patient's nutritional status, taking measurements on various instruments, prescribing tests and creating a therapeutic diet.
