IV Therapy Q & A

Christos Doctors Inn Walk In Healthcare

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is the application of nutrients, vitamins, or medications through an intravenous drip directly into your bloodstream. The therapy has been used in hospitals for decades to ensure patients receive the medications and nutrients they need, and recently, IV therapy has become a more mainstream way to improve your overall wellness.

What is IV therapy good for?

Dr. Smith customizes IV therapy to meet your specific needs. It’s believed that delivering a high dose of vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream creates a quicker and more noticeable effect than taking supplements orally. This is due to fewer of the nutrients being lost during the digestive process.

Dr. Smith offers IV therapy for three primary purposes:

Medication infusion

You can choose to have certain medications administered intravenously. Talk to Dr. Smith about your options to find out if medication infusion IV therapy is right for you.

Dehydration

If you’re dehydrated, Dr. Smith can provide an IV therapy mix to replenish your body and reduce the symptoms of dehydration like headaches, fatigue, and muscle aches.

Fatigue

Dr. Smith has an IV cocktail of vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids that relieve fatigue quickly when delivered to your bloodstream. Many of the vitamins that boost your energy like B12 are more effective when delivered intravenously.

What happens during IV therapy?

A typical IV drip therapy will take about an hour of your time. Dr. Smith cleans your hand and inserts an IV needle and port. Then he connects the IV bag and tubing, allowing the vitamins, nutrients, or medications to enter your bloodstream. You can relax during your treatment, reading, napping, or watching your favorite television shows. When your IV therapy bag is empty, Dr. Smith removes your needles and you’re free to continue with your day.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

There are many benefits to IV therapy, not the least of which is the improvement of your health and well-being. When the vitamins and nutrients enter your bloodstream directly, there’s no concern about proper absorption in the digestive tract or the liver breaking down the nutrients before they can help you.

Many people are able to reduce their oral supplements and have weekly IV therapy sessions instead.
