IS IV TREATMENT UNCOMFORTABLE?
Generally, no. It is similar to having your blood drawn, but it is provided in a spa-like, relaxing and private environment that helps you disconnect and rest for the duration of your IV treatment. Most treatments are completed in approximately one hour.
WOULD ORAL INGESTION OF A MULTI-VITAMIN PROVIDE THE SAME BENEFITS?
No. Injecting vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream allows them to be more available and easily absorbed into the body in an unaltered and well-tolerated manner, with few or no side effects. Some patients may experience a cooling sensation in the arm or a slight metallic taste in the mouth.
HOW DOES MY NUTRITIONAL STATUS AFFECT MY TREATMENT
Many diseases are caused by nutritional imbalances that occur when your immune, hormonal and hepatic systems become depleted of vitamins and minerals. Replenishment of these vitamins and minerals through IV therapy can quickly and effectively correct existing nutritional deficits in a way that oral supplements cannot.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER THE IV TREATMENT?
Everyone reacts differently to his or her specific treatment, but common reactions are a surge in energy, hunger, and an overall feeling of well-being. If you feel anything differently, please alert our staff.
