IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly into your bloodstream through a needle. The needle attaches to a fluid bag that slowly releases your customized treatment into your body. Kathleen and the team can personalize multiple vitamins and minerals to replenish your body’s nutrients. IV therapy provides results that you can feel right away. 

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

IV therapy offers many benefits for individuals looking for a fast, effective way to take in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Benefits of IV therapy include:

Quick delivery

When you take an oral supplement or eat food, these nutrients must travel through your entire digestive system. That process can take up to 42-72 hours. Along the way, these nutrients lose their potency. IV therapy allows for instant delivery of these nutrients, so you can reap their benefits right away.

Less digestive discomfort

Nutrients that travel through the digestive system can irritate any part of your digestive tract. IV therapy bypasses the entire digestive system, so you’re less likely to experience digestive discomfort.

Safe fluid delivery

When you’re dehydrated, you need electrolytes to replenish your body. Drinking electrolyte-infused drinks aren’t always enough to hydrate your body if you need fluids right away.

What can IV therapy do?

IV therapy can treat numerous health and wellness concerns. Kathleen and the team may recommend IV therapy to:

  • Boost metabolism
  • Increase energy levels
  • Enhance athletic performance
  • Treat symptoms of lupus, Lyme disease, or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Alleviate menstrual cramps
  • Improve digestion
  • Hydrate the skin
  • Treat acne and other skin concerns
  • Treat anemia
  • Improve brain function
  • Relieve migraines

A consultation with the team may help Kathleen pinpoint your areas of concern to find the appropriate IV treatment for you.

Is IV therapy my only option?

Along with IV therapy, Kathleen and the team offer vitamin injections. These injections deliver vitamins into your muscles, usually through your arm or buttocks. Vitamin injections take longer to enter your bloodstream than IV therapy. However, their effects may last longer. During your initial consultation, Kathleen and the team can recommend the best delivery method for you.
