IV Therapy Q & A
Why do I need IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is the most advanced way to get vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients into your body. The reason why IV therapy is so beneficial is that the nutrients entirely bypass your digestive tract, where they’re sometimes destroyed, and enter your bloodstream directly. This can be beneficial for helping with:
- Low energy levels
- Chronic pain, like fibromyalgia
- Seasonal and chronic allergies
- Bowel disorder, such as ulcerative colitis
- Inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis
IV therapy may even be beneficial for stabilizing your moods if you suffer from depression or anxiety. Chronic headache and migraine sufferers also find IV therapy to be helpful.
What happens during an IV therapy session?
Gordon Hart, PA-C, and the team of nutritional experts at Balance Hormone Center design your IV therapy based on your specific concerns and overall health. Your IV therapy session begins with starting an IV line, usually right inside the bend of your elbow.
Once it’s in place, all you have to do is sit back and relax while your body soaks up all the beneficial nutrients, including:
- Vitamin C
- B vitamins
It can take up to 30-45 minutes to complete your IV therapy, so feel free to bring a book, your tablet, or your laptop to get some work done during your visit. Of course, you’re always welcome to lie back and take a nap, too.
How many IV therapy sessions do I need?
The team at Balance Hormone Center usually recommend starting out with one to two weekly IV therapy sessions for the first few weeks. As any nutrient deficiencies resolve and you start feeling an improvement, you may only need to come in once or twice a month.
If you have a chronic condition, such as Crohn’s disease or arthritis, it’s often beneficial to schedule IV therapy visits at least once a month, or as you feel they’re needed. IV therapy should become part of your overall preventive medical care plan.
