The Wellness Group was  founded by medical director Dr. Shailen Lala and Registered Nurse Sr. Martinette Botes.

Dr. Lala is a certified doctor, registered with the Health Professions Counsel of South Africa(HPCSA) as well as General Medical Council of the United Kingdom. He believes strongly in only offering treatments that are both safe and beneficial.

Sr. Botes is a certified ICU Trained Nurse, registered with  the South African Nursing Council(SANC), Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa as well as the Board of Healthcare Professionals.  Patient care, wellbeing and safety is at the heart of everything she does at The Wellness Group.

The Wellness Group is not a new fad – and it has been practiced for many years as an adjunct to conventional medical treatment of a wide range of health conditions. There is a growing body of scientific evidence that supports many of the claims of The Wellness Group.

Dr Lala was also fascinated at the rejuvenating potential of The Wellness Group. He is a firm believer in holistic medicine and would always address a patient holistically, when offering more  treatments. With The Wellness Group, a cell-deep rejuvenation can be affected, enhancing your natural beauty and giving you back your glow.

At The Wellness Group, the first step is to have a consultation with Dr. Lala to assess your general health and establish whether you have any underlying health conditions or nutritional deficiencies.If  there is an underlying health concern, you may be advised to be treated first before embarking on The Wellness Group.

The side effects of IV Vitamin therapy are very rare and this therapy can safely be used in combination with the majority of conventional medical treatments.

At The Wellness Group, we see many patients complaining of an inability to get going in the morning even after a good night’s sleep, or not performing at their peak during the day, followed by a feeling of absolute exhaustion at the end of a busy day.

The first step we always take at The Wellness Group is to establish if there are any underlying medical conditions that are causing this exhaustion. Viral or bacterial infections, hormonal imbalances, inflammatory bowel disease, under-active thyroids and connective tissue disorders may all cause fatigue.

The next step is to assess whether you’re suffering from any vitamin or mineral deficiencies that could be corrected by prescribing one of our bespoke nutrient cocktails. Your immune system and general levels of health are directly affected by the vitamins and minerals in your body. Because the nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream, many patients report feeling replenished and refreshed almost immediately after treatment

Athletic Performance Enhancement

From professional athletes to those that take their sport seriously, The Wellness Group is fast becoming the new buzzword.

When you expend energy, you churn through the body’s stores of nutrients and minerals to power your metabolism. It is your metabolism that converts carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy through a series of chemical reactions and these chemical reactions require certain vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, B-Complex, Magnesium and Zinc.

How could The Wellness Group enhance my athletic performance?

IV Vitamin Therapy works in two key ways;

  • Firstly, it improves performance by strengthening the body and topping up levels of the minerals and vitamins that can be depleted by strenuous exercise.
  • Secondly, certain nutrients have been found to reduce fatigue which could help shorten the time it takes you to bounce back after your athletic endeavor.

Which is the best IV Vitamin Therapy to improve my athletic performance?

At The Wellness Group, every treatment is bespoke and tailor made for the individual. This means we assess your requirements and adjust the different levels of specific nutrients.

The two nutrient therapies that we’ve found most beneficial for patients keen to improve their sporting abilities are:

  • Performance Booster

Whether you are competing at a high level or just committed to a regular exercise routine, our Performance Booster drip can deliver key energy-production vitamins and minerals that can also maintain your immune system in the face of strenuous exercise.

  • Myers Cocktail

The standard Myers’ Cocktail includes magnesium, calcium, B-vitamins (including B12, B5 and B-6), B-Complex, selenium and vitamin C, and it has been found effective in improving athletic achievement.

  • Glutathione IV

Recent studies have shown a possible link between Glutathione and increased stamina.

IV Therapy After Surgery

The Wellness Group aims to top up levels of important minerals and vitamins; nutrients such as Zinc, Selenium and Vitamin B6 which maintains your immune system in the face of a serious shock to the system.

Vitamins such as C and A are powerful antioxidants that fight free radicals. Vitamin C and zinc are also key factors in the production of collagen.

Vitamins and minerals are required by the body for almost every function, whether for normal maintenance or in times of increased need.

Should I be undergoing IV Vitamin Therapy before or after surgery?

If you have recently undergone surgery, particularly if it was emergency surgery, and you find your recovery is not going as smoothly as hoped for, then IV Nutrient Therapy will start delivering valuable nutrients immediately.

However, to get the most from this treatment, starting your IV Nutrient Therapy in advance of your surgery, even by just a couple of weeks, can ensure you’re not suffering from a nutrient deficiency that could undermine your recovery.

Which is the best IV Vitamin Therapy for after surgery?

At The Wellness Group, we offer a number of different IV treatments that can increase vitamin and mineral levels. Often we will combine treatments to achieve the optimal results:

  • High-Dose Intravenous Vitamin C

This vitamin powerhouse works as a highly effective agent to maintain a healthy immune system as well as playing a key role in collagen production.

  • Myers’ Cocktail

Although we can prescribe vitamin C as a very effective standalone treatment, the powerful combination of minerals and vitamins in the Myers’ Cocktail make it an essential part of any IV Vitamin Therapy treatment programme.

  • Glutathione IV

Glutathione is a powerful anti-oxidant that can reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals released during your surgery.

Intestinal Malabsorption

Many of the conditions that cause intestinal malabsorption like Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, Lactose intolerance, and intestinal damage, cannot be cured as such. Instead you’ll be prescribed a treatment programme that aims to manage the condition and lessen the symptoms.

IV Nutrient Therapy delivers nutrients straight to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract. It is a fantastic method whereby patients suffering from malabsorption issues can receive the nutrients they need, contributing to an overall improvement in their general health.

Also, IV Nutrient Therapy allows for much higher doses of the required nutrients to be delivered than is possible with oral consumption, meaning that healing of the body is stimulated that much quicker.

At The Wellness Group, we have a number of different IV treatments to offer patients suffering from intestinal malabsorption. These include:

  • Myers’ Cocktail

This represents a good all-round treatment as it contains vitamin C and other essential vitamins and minerals such as zinc, which help to repair tissue.

  • Glutathione IV

This treatment may also be recommended because of glutathione’s anti-inflammatory properties
