What is IV Therapy?
These types of infusions generally take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. While undergoing an IV vitamin drip, your body is receiving a higher concentration of the vitamins themselves. A vitamin that’s taken by mouth gets broken down in the stomach and digestive tract and is limited on how much can be absorbed (20 percent). If, however, the vitamin is given through an IV, it’s absorbed at a much higher percentage (90 percent).
This allows the nutrients to be absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream, a method that produces higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your body than if you got them from food or supplements.
What are IV therapy cocktails used for?
IV therapy cocktails are tailored to individual needs. There is one for most client’s complaints but overall, they improve overall wellbeing. Be sure to speak with your practitioner to see how IV therapy can benefit you.
Some of the conditions supported by IVMT are:
Improving sports performance
Detoxification (hangover cure)
To lighten skin
Can I take oral supplements instead?
The short answer is yes, however when we take oral supplements, they are digested within the stomach via intrinsic factors. Some of us do not have the intrinsic factor. This then means that the vitamins/minerals will not be absorbed.
For those that do, only roughly 20% nutrition is absorbed. It starts with digestion within the small intestine where fats, proteins and carbs are absorbed, and where essential enzymes must be present – unless that person has a problem or a reason why.
If the vitamin is given through an IV, it’s absorbed at a much higher percentage (90 percent). This is because it bypasses the stomach and is absorbed into the blood stream.
How many sessions do I need to see effects?
Typically, the effects become fully noticeable after 12 – 24 hours infusion, although report feeling the effects immediately after treatment.
The effects last for 8 days to 3 weeks depending on the condition, cocktail, and type of IV Therapy.
With regular treatments, safe and long-lasting effects can be achieved.
Do you offer other treatments similar to IV therapy?
Certain nutrients do not require the fluid or as much fluid and can be slowly injected intravenously. This form of treatment is called an “IV push”. IV push treatments take about 10 minutes to administer. Intramuscular single vitamin injections are also available and take roughly 30 seconds to administer.
