IV Therapy Q&A
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy, or intravenous therapy, is a treatment that delivers fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream rather than through your digestive system. It’s a holistic, natural way to help you feel better and get relief from disease symptoms, pain, or fatigue.
Common ingredients in IV fluids include B vitamins, vitamin C, glutathione, other antioxidants, calcium, magnesium, and amino acids.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
Undergoing IV therapy can help you feel better overall and reduce chronic disease symptoms. Common benefits include:
- More energy
- Fewer nutritional deficiencies
- Better hydration
- A stronger immune system
- Less chronic pain
- Fewer migraines
- Improved asthma/allergy symptoms
- Healthier skin
IV therapy is a simple, noninvasive treatment with no downtime. It’s often a relaxing procedure that helps relieve stress.
What should I expect during my appointment?
Before your IV therapy appointment, a practitioner at Esperanza Hope Primary Care reviews your symptoms and medical history. They may use blood tests to choose a personalized IV infusion that best matches your unique needs.
For example, a deficiency in certain nutrients or being at risk of a mineral toxicity dictates the type of infusion that’s safest and most effective for you. Your custom infusion might contain a single nutrient or a combination of various vitamins and minerals.
During IV therapy, you sit on a comfortable chair in a quiet, relaxing room. Your provider uses a tiny needle to puncture your skin and infuse fluids and nutrients into your bloodstream. You might feel a slight pinch when the needle enters your skin, but this is temporary and well tolerated by patients. The procedure might last 20-60 minutes, depending on the type of infusion you receive.
What happens after IV therapy?
Because there’s no downtime after IV therapy, you can resume a normal daily routine immediately after the procedure. You might start feeling better right away or over the next few days or weeks. Your practitioner lets you know how often to schedule additional IV therapy sessions to achieve or maintain optimal health.
To be proactive about your health, boost immunity, and feel better overall, ask your provider if IV therapy is right for you. Schedule an appointment over the phone or online with Esperanza Hope Primary Care today.
