Does IV Therapy Really Work?

Does IV Therapy Really Work?

An IV is an intravenous catheter that allows medical providers to deliver fluids, medications, and vitamins or minerals directly into your bloodstream. IV therapy ensures that medications and fluids go directly to where they're needed instead of getting lost in your stomach and GI tract.

You think of IVs, you may think of traditional IV therapy in the hospital or doctor's office as a way for medical providers to administer medications and other essential treatments directly into your bloodstream. 

But IV therapy is now an up-and-coming way to receive vital nutrients and vitamins.

At Integrated Body and Medicine, our team offers IV nutritional therapy to boost your immune system, deal with anxiety, and improve energy levels. Our team has extensive experience with holistic and natural treatments to enhance your overall health.

The facts on IV therapy

Doctors use IV therapy for many different conditions. It's beneficial in emergencies and as a routine treatment for less severe conditions. IV therapy is a safe and effective way to get fluids and nutrients into your system quickly and efficiently through a small catheter inserted in your arm.

IV therapy is very safe, with only minimal risks involved. The biggest risks are a blown vein, fluid infiltration, bruising, or infection at the IV site, but these risks are rare and typically not serious.
