IV Therapy Q&A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy involves delivering fluids directly into your bloodstream through an intravenous line. This therapy bypasses your usual digestive processes so that you can absorb the full benefit of the fluids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the infusion.

Because this type of therapy delivers essential nutrients directly into your blood, you can enjoy many immediate and long-lasting benefits of your treatment.

What conditions can IV therapy treat?

Depending on your needs, Dr. Lima can customize an IV therapy plan to address acute and chronic conditions like:

  • Colds
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Migraines
  • Hangovers
  • Chronic fatigue

Dr. Lima can recommend IV therapy as part of your medical weight loss plan. IV therapy can also effectively improve symptoms of mental health issues like anxiety and depression while boosting your mental clarity, cognitive function, and energy levels.

You might also consider IV therapy if you’re looking for holistic, anti-aging strategies to improve the health and appearance of your hair, nails, and skin.

What is in IV therapy infusions?

There are a number of nutrients Dr. Lima can deliver into your blood through IV therapy to support your health. Some of the common ingredients in the infusions include:

  • B Vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Glutathione
  • Amino acids

Dr. Lima will customize your IV infusion based on your medical history and your existing health.

What happens during IV therapy?

You can expect to relax comfortably during your infusion procedure as the liquid nutrients slowly drip into your vein. Dr. Lima monitors your health during your treatment and can recommend maintenance infusions to ensure you enjoy the long-term benefits of IV therapy.

Typically, IV infusions take less than an hour and cause minimal side effects. You might have some mild swelling or bruising at the injection site but that goes away soon after your treatment.

Many people experience immediate benefits of their treatment, such as having more energy and mental clarity. However, it can take several hours for you to feel the full effect of your infusion, which can last for several days.
