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. 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 help 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 specific vitamins and nutrients your body needs. For example, a vitamin B infusion can boost your energy levels and metabolism. The infusion can improve your energy levels, rehydrate your body, and relieve chronic health conditions and cancer symptoms.
Who is a good candidate for nutritional IV therapy?
Almost anyone can benefit from a vitamin infusion. We use vitamin infusions to reduce symptoms of a wide range of health conditions, including:
Nutritional IV therapy can also boost your immune system and increase your energy.
What should I expect during vitamin infusion therapy?
We begin 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 we place the IV in your arm, you 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 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?
You may see dramatic effects after the first IV, depending on your nutritional and hydration status. People who get IVs 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. There are no restrictions. We recommend 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. We recommend two IV infusions per month to help balance any vitamin deficiencies for preventative health and wellness.
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.
