Vitamin-Shot Clinic

Author: Dr. Kimberly Karuna

Are you someone who struggles with reaching your health goals? Are you someone that sets the intention for the changes you want to make and yet can’t seem to follow through with the things you know you need to do in order to make that happier and healthier version of yourself a reality?

If this is you, you are NOT alone. With the growing intensity of the hustle-bustle of modern life we naturally have times where we lose our attention and focus on what is most important, that which sustains our lives: our health.  If this pattern goes unchecked, before we know it we are in the habit of engaging in unhealthy habits that take us further away from our desire and commitment to improving our own experience. Lost in a sea of overwhelm, without a clear compass of how we can get back on the right track, we succumb to complacency and feelings of powerlessness, convincing ourselves that the path to living a vital and vibrant life is ridden with a laundry list of (perceived) obstacles. We begin trying to convince ourselves that having chronic fatigue, excess weight, insomnia, or depression is well, not THAT bad. Yet if we are honest, we know that it is THAT bad.

Like everything else, making change happen in our lives takes a certain level of dedication, focus, commitment, accountability, and support. Getting your health back on track doesn’t have to be so hard and overwhelming nor does it have to break your bank. Sometimes simple interventions can make a BIG difference. 

We are hosting Vitamin Shot Clinics on the first Friday of every month from 4-6, here at Farmacopia!⁣

        Why intramuscular injections?

        Did you know that when vitamins and nutrients are ingested orally we only absorb approximately 20%? The percentage is even lower for those who have chronic digestive complaints as absorption of these nutrients through the digestive tract can be significantly compromised and diminished. When nutrients are administered as an intramuscular injection the nutrients bypass the digestive system, thereby delivering the nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Administering nutrients through intramuscular injections is the quickest and most efficient way to correct deficiencies and support the body’s metabolic health and function. Some report feeling a noticeable difference within 10 minutes of a nutrient injection.
