What is Intravenous (IV) Therapy?

Life can take a lot out of you! Our bodies work hard to keep us healthy and to do that it needs a lot of vitamins and minerals. Between busy lives and poor food quality, we don’t always get all the nourishment we need to maintain that optimal state of health. IV nutrient therapy is an excellent and safe supplement to your overall health. It is like a multivitamin for your bloodstream and is an incredibly effective way to deliver vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly to organs and tissues for use.

What conditions can IV therapy treat?

When we are sick our bodies use up a lot of vitamins and minerals to fight the infection or inflammation as well as restore the tissues to optimal function. IV nutrients help to reduce inflammation and supplement low nutrient levels. IV nutrient therapy can treat everything from simple dehydration to severe malnourishment as the result of many types of illness and disease. The following are just a few examples of illness and disease that can benefit from IV nutrient therapy.

  • After cold/flu/COVID infection
  • IBS/IBD
  • Celiac disease
  • UTI
  • Brain fog
  • Cancer
  • Mold exposure
  • Anemia
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines
  • Toxin exposures (lead, mercury and even workplace exposure)

What are the treatment benefits of IV Therapy?

IV nutrient therapy has a significantly higher bioavailability than with oral supplements, meaning your body can absorb more of the nutrients you need directly into the bloodstream. We utilize the best available compounded nutrients, peptides and therapeutics, ensuring they are always the most “active” form available to the body so that you receive the maximum benefit. IV nutrient therapies directly affect the body’s vitality by increasing hydration, improving metabolic efficiency, reducing inflammation, reducing pain, and increasing overall energy.

How are IV Therapies administered?

Once positioned comfortably in a chair or on the treatment table, a needle is inserted into the hand, forearm or bend of the elbow. A soft plastic tube is inserted over the needle and the needle is removed. Only the soft plastic tube stays in the arm during treatment. The nutrient bag is then connected to the soft tube with IV tubing. The nutrient solution is then dripped slowly through the tube into arm. The whole process typically takes 30-45 minutes.

Are IV Nutrient Therapies covered by insurance?

Typically IV nutrient therapy is not covered by insurance. There are rare, limited conditions in which this injection therapy may be covered, so check with your provider for clarification if you feel you may be applicable.
