Q. What are the benefits of IV Therapy?
A. By giving your cells the nutrients they need to function properly, tissues can recover faster from injuries and workouts, energy and focus improve, and your immune system can fight off bacterial and viral infections more effectively. IV Therapy will help you to remain in peak mental and physical shape. Many people notice the beneficial effects immediately following an infusion.
Q. Why should I do this, when I can just take vitamins?
A. Taking supplements by mouth must be digested through the GI tract and then absorbed. IV nutrients bypass the digestive tract and go directly in the blood, so you can absorb over 100 times the nutrition. This is especially important for anyone with a digestive tract disorder, because absorption may have been impaired for many years and so getting the nutrient status back up is almost only possible with IVs.
Q. Who can benefit from IV treatments?
A. Everyone can benefit from IV treatments to help boost the immune system and energy. The most common conditions that can benefit from IVs are:
- Chronic pain
- Chronic Fatigue
- Chronic infections such as EBV, CMV, Lyme’s disease
- Common colds and Flus
- Nutrient deficiencies caused by gastrointestinal diseases
Q. Is it Safe?
A. Yes, hospitals have been doing IV therapies for decades and they are safe and effective when administered by a trained medical professional. Many private practice physicians all over the world have been using IV therapies for many years as well to treat a wide variety of conditions.
Q. Does it hurt?
A. Not really, it will feel like a small prick but then will be painless.
Q. How long does it take?
A. Between 45minutes and 3 hours, depending on the amount of nutrition you are receiving.
Q. How often do I need to get an IV?
A. It is really very dependent on what condition we are treating. Some people need only 1 IV, while others will need a series of IVs twice weekly.
Q. What can I expect in an IV therapy session?
A. Imagine you are relaxing in a comfortable reclining chair. You may bring your iPad to listen to music, watch a show, or catch up on reading. You have a warm neck pillow with calming essential oils. You are resting and recharging, while your body is receiving a customized IV formula designed to replenish your body. The treatment ends and you feel balanced from the inside out.
