All About IV Therapy

What is IV?

IV is short for intravenous or inside the vein. The procedure starts with needle insertion into the vein in your arm. Then a tiny tube called a catheter replaces the needle to hold access to the vein in place. There may be a small poke or pinch, but it is an entirely harmless procedure.

What is IV Therapy?

IV therapy is the best source for rapidly absorbing fluids, vitamins, and minerals into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, your body quickly absorbs all elements to create a lasting effect. While supplements are not as absorbed as effectively in the body, IV therapy is the best therapy to absorb vitamins and minerals fully. Certain IVs have more fluids, vitamins and minerals, nutrients, and specialized components than others which will take the procedure anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. Ask our Lifestyle Arichets about specifics of time and support during the process.

What is IV Push?

Are you in a rush but want to feel more vitality? An IV push will give you fluids, vitamins and minerals, nutrients, and specialized components in less than one 1 minute. A registered nurse with a syringe pushes the solution directly into your veins. The registered nurse sits with you the entire time as a safe and convenient alternative to the more prolonged IV Therapy.

What is IV Booster?

An IV Booster is a fast treatment without the hassle of solutions to absorb fluids, vitamins and minerals, nutrients, and specialized components. The booster or injection is often inserted intramuscularly into your arms or buttocks muscles. Boosters can take less than 5 minutes and provide total absorption, just like an IV. They can be purchased and administered later at the convenience of your home.

Does IV therapy have any side effects?

Depending on the IV type, the effects may be mild or not occur. Some side effects could include bruising at the insertion site, itching, redness, and slight discomfort. These symptoms can last a few minutes to a few days. Allergic reactions are rare.

Is IV therapy painful?

Everyone is unique and can be more sensitive to fluids, vitamins and minerals, nutrients, and specialized components than others. Depending on their condition, some people may experience nausea, stomach pains, and light-headed feeling during the IV. The insertion of the IV itself is relatively painless. If you are not keen on needles and want to have numbing spray (lidocaine), the registered nurse is happy to provide that for you in advance of the treatment.

Do I have to stop medications or supplements when doing IV therapies?

Most likely not. It is best to consult our clinical staff team before starting an IV therapy to ensure no reaction. They will go over your medical history and medication and can advise you.

How soon will I feel the IV effects?

Oral supplementation passes through the stomach; it does not fully break down all vitamins and minerals for complete absorption. IV hydration goes straight to your bloodstream, maximizing the absorption of fluids, vitamins and minerals, nutrients, and specialized components. You may start to feel the effects of the IV in as little as a couple of minutes to hours. Certain IVs have longer-term benefits if done regularly.
