Frequently Asked Questions

IV Vitamin Therapy works by administration of vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This provides increased cell absorption and 100% bio availability of vitamins via IV infusion. Booster shots are administered via intramuscular (IM) injection so there is no GI metabolism, which also allows for increased absorption. With oral supplements, you only get about 20% absorption after filtering through your digestive system, which clearly pales in comparison to IV vitamins.

FAQ'S

HOW DOES BSI OFFER THE BEST QUALITY IV INFUSIONS AND SERVICES AT REDUCED PRICES?

Yayasan BSI International Clinics is a Not-For-Profit Corporation. We are dedicated to helping people through science-based analysis combined with nature-based therapies. This means we are on your side, here to help, not conscripted by the pharmacy and insurance industries.

DOES IT HURT?

Acceptance of needles varies with each person and we understand that. Our certified medical staff is highly experienced and thoroughly trained. We employ a breathing technique where the IV is inserted during the patient’s out breath, truly easing the experience.
 
CAN ANYONE DO IV THERAPY?
 
At BSI we offer several levels of IV service. Non member / Level I patients can receive up to 3 grams of vitamin C, and other additives. Level II / High Dose IV Patients, after deep testing and analysis, can receive much higher dose infusions. Other services are also available, based on individual needs.
 
DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
 
We encourage an appointment if travel plans to Bali are set, because we often must book a month or two in advance. The best way to make an appointment is via email, per links listed here. We do accommodate Level I / Non-Member walk-ins but sometimes our clinics can get very busy. For Level II  / High Dose Infusions Patients, an appointment is required.
 
DO I NEED TO GET TESTED BEFORE RECEIVING AN IV ?
 
If for Level I / Non-Member Moderate Dose Infusions, no prior testing is required. However, if High-Dose / Level II infusions and therapies are requested, then we ask you to register for BSI Level II Analysis and Therapy.
 
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF IV HYDRATION?
 
Vitamin and mineral IVs introduce fluids and essential elements directly into the body, efficiently targeting organs, ligaments, skin, the nervous system, immunities, and more. IV Infusions are high-quality, quick-delivery supplements, that serve to rapidly rehydrate and replenish nutrients, restoring the body to peak balance.
 
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF GETTING VITAMINS VIA IV THERAPY?
 
Intravenous infusions directly introduce 100% of needed vitamins and nutrients into the body. Unlike oral ingestion of nutrients, IV infusions can prevent upset stomach, and limitations digestion can cause. During conditions of illness or malnutrition, IV Therapy can introduce more appropriate and targeted nutrients and medicines, at the moment when most needed.
 
WHY IS VITAMIN C IV THERAPY CENTRAL TO CURRENT WORLD-WIDE VIRUS DISEASE?
 
It’s important to differentiate Vitamin C as an oral supplement, from how it works as an IV medicine. As a medicine, inserted into veins, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) causes the body to produce glutathion and collagen, both central to tissue healing, immune boosting, and anti-aging therapies. Ascorbic acid also causes oxygenation in the blood and surrounding tissues – virus and non-beneficial bacteria cells tend to burst when vitamin C enters them, which causes them to produce hydrogen peroxide, which fills the cells, and surrounding areas, with oxygen. Most (low pH) diseases cannot live in high oxygen environments. Cancer cells and many other diseases, are highly mitigated by ascorbic acid IV therapy.
 
The list of Vitamin C IV benefits, when used as a medicine as well as in supplementation, is very long, and we suggest further study. Be wary of non-referenced misinformation. This YouTube video may be helpful – watch it until the end.
 
HOW QUICKLY WILL I FEEL THE EFFECTS?
 
Everyone is different. As a general rule, the more deficient and unbalanced the system, the greater and more immediate the effect. Effects are not always immediately felt, but the therapy will soon be seen as beneficial, as the body heals and enlivens. Often more than one infusion is needed, depending on the state of health and degree of illness or depletion. IV therapies are the clinical gold standard in “flushing” the body of unwanted toxins, while achieving balance and high nutrition.
 
WHICH BSI IVs ARE BEST FOR ME?
 
BSI offers a wide variety of IVs, for both members and non-members. Our medical personnel will provide you with a thorough explanation on the therapies to help you decide on the most suitable service. Many of our patients receive wellness IVs on a weekly regimen, during healing, or in prevention of disease and aging.
 
WHO DEVELOPS THE CONTENTS OF BSI MEDICINES AND IVs?
 
BSI therapies are developed by our physicians and pharmacists. We continuously research and develop medicines in-house,  in order to improve therapies. All of the ingredients are sourced from quality suppliers, all of which are rated as ‘pharmceautical grade’, as required by extensive licensing.
 
BSI IVs contain only natural constituents such as electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and anti-oxidants. All BSI oral and injectable medicines are crafted from natural concentrated ingredients, and are fully licensed by the Indonesian Government.
 
WHY ARE BSI MEDICINES AND INGREDIENTS SO DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS?
 
BSI is licensed to manufacture and employ medicines and therapies outside of mainstream medicine, due to its status as a Not-For-Profit Corporation. We operate under different rules than do other types of corporations. As such we can thankfully offer medicines not available anywhere else, that tend to be more effective without producing the often toxic side-effects of mainstream medicines and practice.
 
WHAT IS THE MOST POPULAR IV INFUSION AND WHY?
 
The Vita Booster is an all time favorite! It is the ultimate vitamin infusion, that contains the most studied vitamin mixture created by Dr. John Meyer in the 1950s, plus the added touch of BSI’s specially formulated anti-oxidants. The Vita Booster contains Vitamin C and B-Complex for optimizing immunity, neuro-function, metabolic energy, and cell recovery. This particular formulation has been widely studied in terms of efficacy for treatment of symptoms related to multiple chronic fatigue and life debilitating disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, cancer, fibromyalgia, and dementia just to name a few.
 
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN IV INFUSION, IV PUSH AND A BOOSTER?
 
IV is an abbreviation for ‘intravenous’. To administer an IV Infusion, a small plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein using a needle that is quickly removed once the plastic tube is advanced into the vein. IV Infusions consist of 500-1000 ml of fluid with a mixture of vitamins and anti-oxidants. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and vitamins throughout the body with 100 % absorption into the bloodstream. IV Infusions usually take 45-90 min to infuse.
 
An IV Push is infused directly into the bloodstream via a plastic catheter that is inserted into the vein. IV Pushes are in a 60 cc syringe, concentrated more on high dose vitamins with minimal fluid hydration and take about 10-15 min to administer. You still get 100% absorption via an IV Push.

A Vitamin Booster Shot is a quick 10-second injection that delivers vitamins intramuscularly, directly into the gluteus or deltoid muscle. There is no IV access required with vitamin boosters. The dosages of vitamins also differ since the rate of absorption is different with an IV going directly into the bloodstream, and a booster going into the muscle, which allows a smaller volume of vitamins to be injected.

HOW DOES IV VITAMIN THERAPY WORK?
 

Vitamin IV Therapy works by administration of vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This provides increased cell absorption and 100% bio availability of vitamins via IV infusion. Booster shots are administered via intramuscular (IM) injection so there is no GI metabolism, which also allows for increased absorption. With oral supplements, you only get about 20% absorption after filtering through your digestive system, which clearly pales in comparison to IV vitamins.

HOW LONG DOES IV INFUSION THERAPY LAST?
 
After an IV infusion, the vitamins remain in your system and maintain your levels for 2-3 weeks.
 
WHO ADMINISTERS THE IV DRIP TREATMENT?
 
IV treatments are administered by Board Certified Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Physicians.
 
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE AN IV DRIP?
 
The frequency of IV Infusion therapy is determined on a patient by patient basis, we take a customized approach to suit your individual needs. For preventative health and wellness, we recommend two IV Infusions per month to help balance out any vitamin deficiencies.

In some cases, with people who suffer from advanced stages of autoimmune diseases or cancer, continued IV therapy may be necessary for nutritional support. Some patients get progressively better and after a series of treatments they no longer require ongoing weekly IV therapy, only monthly treatments to maintain balance. Other patients need regular vitamin injections in order to help alleviate symptoms of their chronic or common medical conditions.

Diagnostic tests are available to better determine how often a person should be receiving treatments.

IS IV VITAMIN THERAPY A TREND?

IV vitamin therapy is not a trend. IV vitamin therapy promotes new advancement in overall health and wellness. Many people are accepting the benefits of IV vitamin therapy and are aware that an individual does not need to go to a hospital to receive an IV anymore. Most also see the upside of getting nutrients and vitamins through an IV and that one does not need to ingest daily vitamin supplements to stay healthy. As we continue to promote health and wellness via our IV therapy services, the awareness surrounding the wave of preventative health is growing.
