What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is intravenous therapy. A tiny needle is used to enter a vein in your arm or hand. When the needle is withdrawn, a plastic catheter remains in place to infuse fluids and nutrients. IV therapy is a quick, effective, and relatively safe way to administer high doses of nutrients. Infusion times vary depending on the specific IV you receive. IV pushes can be 10 minutes and some drips can be 2 hours. You can sit back and read or watch TV while it infuses.
Why would I need IV therapy?
IV therapy is safe for almost anyone. IV therapy bypasses the gastrointestinal system, which may have inflammation and malabsorption issues. Oral nutrients may not be absorbed well. The nutrients in an IV are delivered right where they are needed: the cells of your body. Anything administered is absorbed 100% into the bloodstream.
