IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous therapy (IV therapy) brings nutrients into your bloodstream directly. It’s a more efficient way of getting nutrients into your system than taking them in the form of oral supplements because they don’t need to pass through your digestive system. Some nutrients aren’t fully absorbed via digestion for various reasons. 

During an IV therapy session at Resilient Healthcare Services, you relax in a cushioned chair as your provider places the catheter in a vein in your arm. For 45 minutes to an hour, you sit as the nutrients flow steadily into your vein. Depending on what’s in your IV drip, you might experience the effects right away or within a few hours. The benefits typically last for days. 

If you decide to do so, you can schedule regular IV therapy sessions to experience the ongoing benefits of hydration and nutrition. 

Who can benefit from IV therapy?

IV therapy serves many purposes according to the nutrients it contains. Every IV offers maximum hydration, which is beneficial to anyone. 

You can benefit from IV therapy if you experience:

  • Dehydration
  • Fatigue
  • Hangovers 
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Slow athletic recovery
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Jet lag
  • Pregnancy symptoms
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Low immunity

Your provider formulates your IV drip based on your needs. They supervise your IV therapy process to make sure you don’t experience any complications or side effects during the session.   

Which nutrients are in IV therapy?

A variety of nutrients can go into an IV drip for IV therapy. Most contain a base of saline, which keeps you hydrated. 

Your body relies on various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to function efficiently. While you get most of these nutrients in your daily meals and snacks, absorption issues, an imbalanced diet, and certain medical complications can prevent you from getting all the nutrients you need from food. Your IV drip might contain:

  • Vitamin A
  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Glutathione

Your provider can describe these nutrients to you in detail, including how they benefit your well-being.
