What Is IV Therapy and How Does It Work?
It’s important to understand any kind of medical treatment you choose, even if it is elective. Let’s review what IV therapy is and how the procedure works. IV hydration can help to restore the body's fluid balance, which is essential for many bodily functions such as regulating body temperature, maintaining blood pressure, and removing waste products. It can also help to replenish electrolytes and nutrients that may have been lost Overall, IV Therapy can be an effective way to help restore the body's fluid balance and provide essential nutrients and electrolytes to the body. IV therapy provides patients with both hydration and essential vitamins and minerals by infusion via IV. The benefit of IV administration of vitamins and minerals in comparison to traditional multivitamins comes down to how the body absorbs these nutrients. When we consume traditional multivitamins orally, our bodies absorb these nutrients from our stomach and digestive tract which only provides an average of 7-14% of those vitamins that are bioavailable or readily available for the body to use. IV infusion administers the vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, which allows for a much faster absorption process and a much higher rate of bioavailability— almost 100%! IV therapy can be used to increase energy, immunity, lift brain fog, ease hangover symptoms and so much more!
Is IV Therapy Safe?’
In general, IV therapy is considered safe when administered by a trained healthcare professional in a sterile environment. However, like any medical treatment, there are potential risks and side effects associated with IV therapy that should be carefully considered before undergoing the procedure. Some possible risks and side effects of IV therapy may include: - Infection at the site of the IV catheter insertion - Bruising or swelling at the insertion site - Infiltration, which is when the IV fluid leaks into the surrounding tissue - Air embolism, which can occur if air enters the bloodstream during the IV insertion process - Allergic reaction to the IV fluid or medication being administered - Electrolyte imbalances or other complications if the IV fluid is not properly balanced or administered It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of IV therapy with a healthcare professional before undergoing the procedure. They can provide more information on how to minimize the risks and monitor for any potential complications. In addition, it is important to ensure that the healthcare professional administering the IV therapy is properly trained and following appropriate safety protocols to minimize the risk of infection or other complications.

How will I feel after my IV infusion?
After receiving IV hydration, how you feel will depend on the reason why you received the treatment and your individual response to the infusion. In general, you may feel more hydrated and have improved energy levels after the procedure. If you were severely dehydrated before the infusion, you may feel a significant improvement in symptoms such as thirst, dizziness, and fatigue. If you received IV therapy to replenish electrolytes or nutrients, you may notice an improvement in related symptoms such as muscle weakness or cramping. It is important to note that some people may experience mild side effects after receiving IV hydration, such as mild bruising or soreness at the site of the catheter insertion. However, these side effects are generally temporary and should resolve on their own. If you have any concerns about how you are feeling after receiving IV hydration, it is important to discuss your symptoms with your healthcare provider. They can provide guidance on how to manage any side effects and determine if any additional treatment or monitoring is necessary.
