IV Therapies Q & A

What is intravenous (IV) therapy?

IV therapy uses variety of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chelation agents and others along with fluids injected directly into the bloodstream through a vein. There are a variety of reasons why IV therapies are used, common reasons being to provide high levels of the desired nutrients like vitamin C, B vitamins, Magnesium and other minerals without having to go through the liver.

Post surgical patients who receive micronutrient IV therapy after surgery have faster healing and greater strength during the recovery period. Similarly after any injuries, IV therapies can reduce recovery time. Consider IV therapies even after dental work as large number of toxins are released with dental cleaning as well as any dental work.

What happens during an IV therapy session?

After your vital signs are taken and general assessment of your health is done to make sure you meet the criteria for IV therapy. Then, you relax in a chair where the doctor will start an IV access in your hand or forearm and connects it the IV bag containing fluids and the nutrients. Most IV treatments take between 1 to 3 hours. Relax and watch some TV or snooze or bring some work!

After the IV infusion is over, the IV needle or catheter will be removed and pressure dressing applied the puncture wound. Your doctor may recommend as needed treatments or multiple times per week or month to help your condition.
