You may think of dehydration or surgery when you hear the word intravenous (IV), but the system delivers crucial nutrients for non-hospitalized patients too. Dr. Shivinder Deol uses IV therapy to meet your vitamin and nutrient needs at his Bakersfield, California, practice.

IV therapy uses an injection system to deliver a substance directly into the bloodstream through a vein. The therapy uses the same method as you’ll get when you receive an IV during a hospital stay.
In fact, those who receive micronutrient IV therapy after surgery have faster healing and greater strength during the recovery period. The benefits of IV therapy extend much further than the hospital though.
Most Americans have vitamin or nutrient deficiencies from Vitamin A to zinc, which affects their body’s functions. The purpose of IV therapy is to give your body direct access to nutrients it’s deficient in or poorly absorbs.
The providers at the Anti-Aging & Wellness Center offer the following IV therapies:
After assessing your health, Dr. Deol determines which IV cocktail might benefit you. He explains the procedures and risks to help you make an informed decision.

Many men and women pursue IV therapy to ward off contagious bugs, alleviate hangovers, and give their systems a reboot.
Your practitioner takes your vitals and assesses your health to make sure you meet the criteria for IV therapy. Then, you relax in a chair while you’re prepared for the injection.
Next, your practitioner inserts a needle into your vein attached to a catheter. You can relax while the fluids from the IV make their way into your system.
The IV infusion can last anywhere from a half hour to several hours, after which your provider removes the needle and dresses the puncture wound. Your doctor may recommend occasional treatments or procedures multiple times per week over the course of several weeks.
