How do you Choose Where to Get a B12 Shot?
There are a staggering number of individuals who offer B12 shots. As medical professionals, this is troublesome. Not all of the individuals administering the shots have the expertise to do so. Nor do they have the expertise to determine if you need a B12 shot.
Overloading your body with any one nutrient can be harmful to health. A B12 shot should only be administered after you’ve discussed your full medical history with a medical professional who determines it would be beneficial to your health.
4 Factors to Consider When You Choose Where to Get a B12 Shot
1 – Is the clinic staffed with competent, medical professionals?
Skilled naturopaths are well-informed about past and current studies. They understand each patient is unique. When they work with a patient, they don’t treat symptoms, they seek the cause.
2 – Are the shots offered at a time that works for you?
Some clinics offer special discounts on B12 on specific days or during set hours. For most patients, this can mean a lot of schedule juggling – which can lead to increased stress. Instead, look for a clinic that offers B12 shots on your schedule. At Tru Health, we offer the same low rate for all B12 shots whenever we’re open.
3 – Does the clinic require an initial consultation?
If a clinic will simply administer a B12 shot with the swipe of a credit card – walk away. No good medical professional ever administers any treatment without taking a comprehensive medical history. When any treatment or medication is administered without the appropriate research, you and your doctor have no way of knowing how it will affect you.
4 – Does the clinic require an appointment?
Getting a B12 shot isn’t like getting a fill on your manicure. No matter how small it is, it’s a medical procedure. This is why at Tru Health we only offer B12 shots on a by-appointment basis.
