FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
and what to expect
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is a quick and relatively painless way to hydrate, restore, and revive your cells, organs, and life. We combine vitamins and nutrients with a saline solution to provide maximum restoration to your cells.
What is the process for IV therapy?
Upon arrival to our clinic, you will be asked to fill out a medical history form. This form will be reviewed by a registered nurse, and the RN will discuss which infusion option would be best for you. Then, under supervision of a Licensed Medical Provider, your IV will be initiated.
What benefits will I notice?
While the possible benefits are endless, most notable benefits would include: increased energy, increased focus, hydration, increased ability to fight infections, decreased muscle pain, decreased inflammation, and decreased stress.
How do I prepare for my infusion?
You should go about your normal day up until infusion time. This includes taking your daily medications and eating a well-balanced diet.
How long does the infusion last?
While actual time will varies depending on your venous access, infusion typically last from 15-45 minutes.
What if I already take oral vitamins daily?
This is not a problem. As low as 10% of vitamins are actually absorbed when taken orally. However, vitamins received via IV are absorbed at 100%.
Do I need an appointment?
We strongly recommend booking an appointment to reserve your chair and ensure staff availability. However, walk-ins are accepted on an as-available basis.
How often should I receive an IV infusion?
We recommend weekly infusions for optimal results. Both bi-weekly and monthly infusions are also beneficial.
What if I have medication allergies?
While it would be very rare to be allergic to any of the vitamins and nutrients we use, a detailed medical history including allergies will be assessed by a registered nurse before any infusion occurs.
Are there any negative side effects I should be aware of?
Negative side-effects are very rare as our vitamins and nutrients are naturally occurring and needed by the body.
Can I do this if I have had weight-loss or GI surgeries?
YES! Since these vitamins and nutrients are absorbed intravenously versus in the GI tract, there are no contraindications.
