IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

During IV therapy, intravenous fluids are administered into your veins, where the substances are quickly absorbed into your body. IV fluids may include:

  • Medicines
  • Vitamins
  • Nutrient drips
    • Energy drip
    • Immunity drip
    • Weight Loss drip
    • Detox drip
    • Hangover drip
    • High Vitamin C drip
    • Anti-aging drip
    • Anti-inflammatory drip
    • Heavy metal chelation
    • Migraine drip
  • Water and electrolytes
  • Other substances used for rejuvenation

The combination of intravenous fluids that the Integrative Family Medicine staff recommends is based on your individualized needs. Blood tests are used to check your hormone levels, and determine if you’re deficient in any essential nutrients. Medication injections improve health conditions and reduce certain side effects.

Which IV treatments should I receive?

A member of the Integrative Family Medicine team lets you know which type of IV therapy best matches your needs. You may be recommended:

Hydration therapy

If you’re chronically dehydrated like up to 75 % of Americans probably are, hydration IV therapy energizes you and lowers your risk for health problems associated with dehydration. Intravenous fluids containing water and electrolytes are administered to rehydrate you quickly and boost energy.

Vitamin B12 injections

The Integrative Family Medicine team may recommend vitamin B12 injections if B12 levels within your body are low. You might be deficient in vitamin B12 if you have pernicious anemia or follow a vegan diet. If this is the case for you, receiving vitamin B12 injections helps boost energy and reduce fatigue, which enhances weight loss in many cases.

Medication injections

If you suffer from the side effects of certain medical conditions, the team may recommend intravenous medication using IV therapy. You might require IV medicines due to hormone deficiencies, nausea associated with pregnancy or chemotherapy treatment, or pain.

When you suffer from fatigue, dehydration, or vitamin or hormone deficiencies, call to make an appointment with Integrative Family Medicine to learn more about IV therapy treatment options, or book an appointment using the online scheduling tool.
