What is IV therapy?

IV therapy, or intravenous therapy, is a quick and efficient way to deliver fluids and nutrients to your body. The Passion Health Primary Care team places an IV needle into a vein and attaches a tube and bag filled with the compounds that can help your body thrive.

Your body benefits immediately by sending the fluids and nutrition straight to your bloodstream. When you take supplements and fluids orally, they must pass through your digestive tract, slowing down absorption.

IV therapy means any vitamins, minerals, medications, and fluids get to work right away to heal and optimize your organs, energy, and immunity.

What is it like to get IV therapy?

Receiving IV therapy is relaxing. You rest in a comfortable chair as the infusion drips into your vein. The only discomfort comes at the time of the needle placement. You feel a quick, slight pinch. After that, you can read, play on your phone, or nap. The entire process takes 30-60 minutes.

Who is a candidate for IV therapy?

IV therapy is a quick way to restore hydration. Your infusion may also include compounds that help with:

  • Fatigue
  • Acne outbreaks
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Brain fog
  • Muscle spasms

People who are deficient in certain nutrients or who have an autoimmune condition often benefit from IV therapy, too. IV therapy can be a helpful part of treatment for heart conditions, arthritis, migraines, and diabetes.

The Passion Health Primary Care team might also recommend an IV therapy treatment if you are recovering from an illness, recently engaged in high-intensity exercise (like a marathon), just returned from overseas travel, or drank too much alcohol.

What type of IV therapy is right for me?

The team at Passion Health Primary Care recommends IV therapy depending on your symptoms, current health, and wellness goals.

You can choose an infusion that helps:

  • Boost immunity
  • Alleviate migraines
  • Ease chronic pain
  • Relieve a hangover
  • Enhance skin and hair health
  • Encourage metabolic efficiency and weight loss
  • Stimulate greater energy

IV therapy can also alleviate the effects of stress and aging. Infusions typically contain fluids, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium.

Some people benefit from an infusion of a single nutrient, such as vitamin C, zinc, or folic acid.
