What is IV therapy? 

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy treats everything from jet lag and hangovers to infections in parts of the body that are resistant to oral antibiotics.

During the treatment, a catheter in a vein in your arm delivers a customized liquid mix of minerals, vitamins, or antibiotics into your bloodstream. 

IV therapy is more effective than food, creams, oral supplements, or antibiotics. Because of the infusion, your body absorbs 100% of the nutrient jam-packed solution, and your cells experience an immediate benefit. 

Before an IV hydration session, your provider assesses your needs and combines the specific minerals and vitamins in your solution. If you’re looking to treat an infection or bacterial disease, your provider determines the best antibiotic for your needs.

The right IV solution depends on your medical concerns, symptoms, medical history, and body composition.

What happens during an IV therapy appointment? 

During the procedure, your provider places a tiny catheter into a vein in your arm. You then begin to absorb the IV solution into your bloodstream. 

The appointment takes 20-60 minutes, depending on your needs, and you can expect immediate results. Your provider stays with you throughout, monitoring the therapy. You may have slight irritation at the injection site, but side effects are rare. 

You can expect the results of IV therapy to last up to one week. If you have a chronic infection or illness and are receiving antibiotics, your provider works with you to determine an effective treatment plan. They may also refer you to an outside physician.
