IV Therapy Q & A
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is a type of treatment that improves your well-being by delivering essential vitamins directly into your bloodstream. When you arrive at your IV therapy appointment, your provider puts an IV needle into a vein in your arm and connects a bag of fluid.

When you ingest vitamins and nutrients through the foods you eat, your digestive system only absorbs about 20% of them. When they enter your bloodstream via an IV drip, your body absorbs all of the nutrients immediately.

Many of these symptoms are vague and may be the result of another condition. After ruling out more serious conditions and causes, your provider assesses your symptoms to determine which vitamins your system is lacking. Then, they choose a cocktail with the vitamins and nutrients you need the most.
