IV Drip Infusions FAQs
What is a vitamin infusion?
A vitamin infusion is an intravenous (IV) treatment that delivers a customized mix of vitamins and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream. The infusion typically provides a higher dose of vitamins than you get from food or supplements, and because it’s delivered straight to your blood, you don’t lose any vitamins through the digestive process.
IV therapy also provides additional fluids, which helps combat fatigue and other symptoms of dehydration.
How can a vitamin infusion improve my health?
Your body doesn’t always absorb enough vitamins and nutrients through your digestive tract. As a result, you aren’t always able to function at optimal levels, leading to fatigue, inflammation, and other health issues ranging from digestive problems to cardiovascular disease.
A vitamin infusion provides a customized cocktail of the precise vitamins and other nutrients your body needs. For example, a vitamin B infusion can boost your energy levels and your metabolism. The infusion can improve your energy levels, rehydrate your body, and relieve symptoms of chronic health conditions and cancer.
Who is a good candidate for nutritional IV therapy?
Almost anyone can benefit from a vitamin infusion. The doctors at Cloud La Med Spa use vitamin infusions to reduce symptoms for a wide range of health conditions including:
Nutritional IV therapy can also boost your immune system and increase your energy. Your doctor may also suggest the treatment to combat the flu.
What should I expect during vitamin infusion therapy?
Your Cloud La Med Spa doctor begins your treatment with a conversation about your symptoms or health concerns, followed by blood tests to identify any nutritional or vitamin deficiencies. Then, depending on your needs, an IV solution is prepared.
Infusion therapy usually takes around 20 minutes. After your doctor places the IV in your arm, you just relax in a comfortable chair. After your infusion is complete, you can get right back to your regular activities.
Are there any side effects during the IV process?
No major side effects are usually seen; however, people do experience some cooling of the arm and a mineral taste in the mouth. Do not worry, as this is all normal.
How soon should I feel the effects?
Depending on your nutritional and hydration status you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. People who get IV’s regularly will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance.
What should I do after the treatment is done?
After your session, you can go about your day as you would normally. There are no restrictions. We recommend that you exercise, meditate, eat healthy meals, stay hydrated, and get enough rest daily.
How often should I receive treatment?
The frequency of IV therapy is determined on a patient by patient basis, we take a customized approach to suit your individual needs. For preventative health and wellness, we recommend two IV infusions per month to help balance out any vitamin deficiencies.
In some cases, with people who suffer from advanced stages of autoimmune diseases or cancer, continued IV therapy may be necessary for nutritional support. Some patients get progressively better and after a series of treatments, they no longer require ongoing weekly IV therapy, only monthly treatments to maintain balance. Other patients need regular vitamin injections to help alleviate symptoms of their chronic or common medical conditions.
