IV Vitamin Therapy Questions and Answers
IV Vitamin Therapy Questions and Answers

Vitamins and minerals perform a myriad of essential services to your body. They function similarly to how tiny ants tirelessly work together, performing mundane tasks to create a robust colony. In the same way, vitamins and minerals keep your bones, muscles, heart, and brain strong so that you can live well and do your best at whatever you put your mind to do. At Elixir Aesthetics, we understand the value of vitamins and minerals for your body and health. That is why we want to offer you intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy so that you can safely and efficiently receive the vitamins and minerals you need!

What is IV Vitamin Therapy?

Intravenous vitamin therapy is an alternative medical treatment that administers vitamins and minerals directly into one’s bloodstream. This treatment originated in the 1960s but has gained recent popularity and acclamation from medical professionals and celebrities alike. Examples of vitamins and minerals used in IV vitamin therapy include B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, or calcium. When vitamins and minerals are administered intravenously rather than ingested orally, your body can absorb a much higher percentage of the nutrients faster. When you take vitamins in pill form, they are broken down in your stomach and digestive system so that your body can only absorb around 50 percent of the nutrients. By contrast, your body can absorb approximately 90 percent of the nutrients when vitamins and minerals are administered intravenously. 

How can IV Vitamin Therapy help me?

There are many different uses and benefits of intravenous vitamin therapy! It has been known to effectively treat a wide array of medical conditions and disorders, such as anxiety, asthma, bronchitis, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, dehydration, depression, fibromyalgia, migraine and tension headaches, muscle spasms, narcotic withdrawal, respiratory tract infections, seasonal allergies, sinusitis, and weight loss! With this broad range of applications, IV vitamin therapy is almost guaranteed to help you in one way or another. Although IV vitamin therapy is very beneficial, it must be noted that it is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle but instead is a supplement. IV vitamin therapy can boost your healthy diet and exercise practices by increasing any vitamins or minerals that your body is deficient in producing on its own. Consequently, IV vitamin therapy can boost your immune system, increase your energy levels and mental clarity, and help your body heal so that you can more easily lead a healthy lifestyle!

What should I expect from IV Vitamin Therapy?

Before intravenous vitamin therapy can safely be administered to any patient, an initial consultation must occur between the patient and the doctor conducting the treatment so that they can be confident that you will not experience any adverse reactions to the procedure. This consultation will include a discussion of your medical history, your reasons for seeking IV vitamin therapy, and your treatment goals. Your specialist may also send you for some lab work to determine which vitamins and minerals would be most beneficial to your health.

Once a treatment plan is established, you will begin receiving IV vitamin therapy. Each treatment session can take anywhere from twenty minutes to an hour, during which time you will be kindly asked to sit in a clinical chair with an IV drip of the vitamin and mineral concoction. The specialist will insert a needle into a vein in your arm through which the vitamins and minerals will be administered to your bloodstream. You should expect noticeable results within a day, and with benefits that last up to a week. As such, we recommend making IV vitamin therapy a weekly treatment.
