What is IV therapy?

If you’ve ever been in a hospital or emergency room setting, you’re probably aware of how IV therapy works. It’s an approach that delivers hydration directly into your bloodstream. 


In medical settings, IV therapy allows practitioners to create optimal hydration and facilitates the steady and reliable administration of medications. In wellness applications, IV therapy is often called IV nutrition therapy, which delivers a carefully formulated blend of micronutrients into the bloodstream.


You can certainly get the nutrients your body needs through food sources, but you would have to build a weekly diet high in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and more. The time needed for meal planning, shopping, prep time, and cooking adds up, which is why so many people fall short.


Supplements can help boost nutrition. But research shows that a significant portion of supplement pills and tablets pass completely through the digestive tract without being broken down. That means you aren’t getting a full or reliable dose.


IV nutrition therapy bypasses your digestive system entirely. Because the nutrients are delivered directly to your bloodstream, they can go to work immediately, and you know exactly what you’re getting. 

What kinds of issues can IV nutrition therapy treat?

One of the biggest benefits of IV nutrition therapy is the immediate hydration boost you achieve. Most people go through each day in a state of mild dehydration, but IV therapy corrects that problem. 


The nutrients used in IV nutrition therapy are blended to deliver specific results. Some of the available options include blends designed to address:


  • Immune system boost
  • Hangover recovery
  • Energy enhancement
  • Cognitive function
  • Workout recovery
  • Mood elevation


Some people rely on IV therapy when they are ill or going through a particularly challenging time, while others make IV nutrition therapy an ongoing part of their wellness routine. 

Is IV nutrition therapy painful?

In the hands of a skilled practitioner like JoAnn, IV nutrition therapy isn’t a painful process. JoAnn has extensive experience placing IVs. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin, but it takes just a moment to place the thin medical tuning in position and attach it to the bag containing your IV solution 


Once the solution begins slowly infusing into your bloodstream, you can relax and take some time for yourself. You can read, listen to music, or just close your eyes for a while during treatment. Removing the IV tubing takes seconds, and a small bandage covers the site before you head back into the swing of your normal daily routine. 


When you’re ready to give IV nutrition therapy a try, book a visit online or over the phone.
