What Is IV Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is essential a cocktail of fluids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to boost your certain aspects of your health. It is the fastest and most effective way of getting your body the vital nutrients it needs, and is a great way to replenish any nutritional deficiencies in your body. Nutrient IV bags are administered directly into the bloodstream through an IV, therefore directly into the cardiovascular circulation, which means the nutrients completely bypass the digestive system. This allows for faster and easier uptake by the body, and nutrients are delivered more efficiently to the cells as an immediate source of energy. 

The Benefit of IV Therapy over Oral Supplements

IV therapy is a more efficient way of getting essential nutrients into our bodies versus when we eat a meal or take oral supplements. When taken orally via supplementation, nutrients are absorbed in various locations through ought the gastrointestinal (GI) tract; this takes time for the nutrients to get processed through the entirety of the tract through the intestinal walls, and then into the bloodstream. Absorption rates can vary depending on the body’s metabolism and a variety of factors including stress, inflammation, and the health of the bacteria living in the GI tract. Digesting certain nutrients through the GI tract can also cause issues or flare ups in some people, especially those with food sensitivities or have chronic conditions like Crohn’s disease and IBS. This makes IV therapy a great option for people with these conditions or who experience symptoms related to digestive dysfunction. 

Nutrient levels depend on whether the nutrients are adequately absorbed, or if the body can absorb them at all. By administering the nutrients directly into the bloodstream and completely bypassing the digestive system, IV treatments ensure that 100% of the nutrients are absorbed and delivered to the cells that need them. People often report feeling better after IV treatments much more quickly than when taking oral supplements.

Risks and Side Effects

While generally considered safe with minimal side effects, there are some factors to consider when deciding if IV therapy is right for you. Side effects of IV therapy may include bruising, swelling, and itching at the injection site. When administering the IV, as with anytime you break the surface of the skin, there’s a risk of infection at the injection site. This is why we highly recommended getting IV treatments from a safe and reputable health care practitioner with professional training and access to sterile tools. At Nascent Health your safety is our highest priority, and we will monitor you to ensure that all is well after your IV treatment. 

How Often Can I Get Treatments?

The frequency of treatments will depend on your specific condition and the severity of symptoms. We will work with you to get a detailed health history and recommend a customized cadence of treatments that best supports your health and lifestyle. Over time, the recommended type of IV and frequency may change depending on how your body responds to treatments.

How Long Does Each Treatment Last?

This varies and depends on your metabolic rate and hydration state. Most people report feeling better almost immediately after treatment, and this feeling can last for days or weeks. IV fluids typically stay in the body for a couple of hours after administration; the nutrients and minerals themselves can remain in your system for days, depending on the type of treatment received and your body’s metabolic processes, although the downstream effects can last much longer. Once in your system, the nutrients will get metabolized and processed via the same process as your oral supplements, and will make their way out of your body naturally. 

How Can I Prepare for My IV Treatment?

We highly recommend drinking lots of water and ensuring you’ve eaten before your IV appointment. Proper hydration dilates the blood vessels, allowing better access to your veins and ensuring easier administration of the IV. Eating beforehand helps prevent the risk of light-headedness and helps prime the body for nutrient uptake.
