What Is IV Vitamin Therapy?

Have you wondered recently what IV vitamin therapy is? IV vitamin therapy has become a popular alternative for many people looking for a variety of health benefits. Are you someone that either takes a multivitamin or thinks they could use more vitamins or hydration in their body? If so, IV vitamin therapy likely offers a great benefit for you. This article will explore the benefits of IV vitamin therapy to help you determine how it may help you.

What Is IV Vitamin Therapy Used For

IV vitamin therapy is often used for patients seeking improved health in a variety of ways. Whether the patient is looking to help avoid the next cold or flu, have more energy or simply be more hydrated IV therapy can help. It is safe, effective, and restorative for your body. In an ideal situation we would all drink enough fluids and have enough vitamins and minerals in our body to be completely healthy. Unfortunately, nearly all of us don’t drink enough fluids and have the proper amount of vitamins and minerals in our body. IV vitamin therapy can be very helpful in supporting a healthy, nourished body. Common uses for vitamin IV nutritional therapy include:

  • Age Management
  • Immune System Enhancement
  • Illness Prevention
  • Energy Boost
  • Detoxification
  • Cleansing

How Does It Work?

The process to receive IV vitamin therapy is very straightforward. Regardless of the type of IV therapy that you are receiving the process will be pretty much the same. At Green Relief Health you will be seated in our comfy drip lounge as you go through the procedure. Before the IV is placed in your arm the nurse or provider will disinfect the injection site where you are receiving your IV. Once the site is disinfected the nurse or provider will place an IV needle directly into your vein.

Once the IV drip is started the nurse or provider will monitor you through your drip infusion.  It is possible for an IV to be administered either through a pump or by means of dripping in through gravity. In either case the IV fluid drips through a catheter and enters your body. Once inside the body the IV vitamin fluid is absorbed directly into your bloodstream. This method delivers hydration and vitamins and minerals in a faster way than taking oral vitamins. While you are receiving your IV you will need to remain relatively relaxed so you don’t disturb or dislodge the IV. Aside from that you can read, watch television, browse your phone, or listen to music all while your IV drip is infusing. The duration of a single treatment varies from person to person, but typically lasts 30 – 45 minutes. The exceptions to this timeframe are our NAD IV treatments, which generally last 3 – 4 hours per session.

Benefits of IV Therapy

There are many benefits to IV therapy. However, one primary benefit of IV therapy is how quick your body absorbs vitamins this way. It is easy and convenient as well. For many common symptoms, IV therapy can be an effective and convenient option. It is an uncomplicated procedure with extremely low risks. All you have to do is come to a comfortable spot like Green Relief Health and the team will do the rest. Heck, you can even get work done or catch up on a TV show all while you are getting infused. The insertion of an IV is relatively painless with just the feeling of a small pinch, and the results are available very quickly.

In addition to the ease and convenience of the process, IV vitamin therapy is also able to help promote health and wellness. The infusion of fluids, vitamins and minerals can help support a healthy immune system, promote healthy skin and keep you hydrated. The right balance of vitamins and minerals in the body can also help improve your energy levels. 

IV drip therapy is also one of the most effective ways to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and fluids to your body, and is more efficient than oral supplements. This technique bypasses your digestive system and is administered directly into your bloodstream. Your body is able to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients and fluids since nothing is lost as a result of the digestive process. In addition, vitamins and nutrients become immediately available to your cells for use for fast results.

Who Can Benefit From IV Vitamin Therapy?

Women, men, students, business professionals, athletes, and just about anyone can benefit from IV vitamin therapy. IV therapy can help just about anyone to boost hydration, increase overall feelings of wellness, recover from an illness, or help ward off a cold or flu. There is no one particular type of person or group that can receive these types of benefits from IV therapy. If you are interested in IV therapy or have questions about how it may help you the best way to figure that out is by having a consultation with a qualified provider.

An IV drip therapy practice will be able to answer any questions you may have about how IV therapy works and what particular IV therapy will benefit you. Your provider can go over any health concerns you may have and will do an examination of you to make sure that whatever therapy you are receiving is safe for you.

What Does It Cost?

IV therapy ranges in cost, depending on the type of therapy and the provider. IV therapy is not typically covered by insurance, which means patients are responsible for the cost. At Green Relief Health, our packages start at $100 (the rehydrate package), but we have other packages targeted for specific symptoms such as a migraine or hangover. The cost of each of our packages covers the IV drip and the provider. You can also opt to customize an IV therapy for your specific symptoms.
