IV Therapy—What It Is & How It Can Benefit You

  • August 08, 2022

Intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, has long been used in hospital settings to administer fluids, medications, and anesthetics. Administering medications via the bloodstream is the quickest and most effective way to serve patients. But you don’t have to be in a hospital to receive an IV that can improve your quality of life.

At The New You, we use IV therapy to help patients just like you feel healthier than ever. We administer remedies, vitamins, and minerals through the IV to help you with dehydration, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, improve your overall health, and many other goals. Most people can feel the effects of IV therapy immediately.

Which Vitamins & Minerals Are Used in IV Therapy?
We can administer several vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream. Using an IV ensures maximum absorption of these vitamins and minerals, which is why you’re likely to feel better right away.
Here is a list of vitamins and minerals we can include with your IV treatment:

  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Antioxidants
  • Saline

Even though we have plenty of sunshine in Winter Haven, Florida, our patients still struggle to support their immune systems throughout the year. Which vitamins and minerals we include in your IV drip depends on your health and wellness goals.

For example, if you’re dehydrated, you can benefit from a saline drip. If you feel a cold coming on, a high dosage of vitamin C can help your immune system do its job. Finally, most people are deficient in a variety of vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins and magnesium.

You must understand that using IV therapy is not a substitute for eating healthy meals. The IV treatments supplement your vitamin and mineral needs and help you achieve a greater level of overall health.

What Vitamin-Infused Therapy Can Help With

IV therapy can benefit most individuals, even people who have good overall health. Almost everyone is deficient in at least one or more vitamin or mineral, and an IV drip can significantly improve those deficiencies. People who have one or more health concerns may benefit even more from IV therapy.

Here are some examples of results achieved by IV therapy:

  • Relief from hangovers
  • Support for your immune system
  • Alleviation from pregnancy symptoms
  • Relief from headaches and migraines
  • Improvement of cold and flu symptoms

Sometimes, IV therapy can relieve pain that doesn’t respond to traditional pain medication. There can also be a mood-boosting effect that lasts for several days. One benefit that’s difficult to measure is an increase in satisfaction and happiness. Many of our patients report feeling overall better and less fatigued after receiving IV therapy.

The Process of IV Therapy in Winter Haven
The process of IV therapy is simple enough. During your appointment, we will help you determine the optimal blend of IV fluids for you, depending on your nutritional and health needs. Our highly trained nurses will set up the IV drip for you. There may be some minimal discomfort as the needle punctures your skin.

Then you get to sit back and relax while your body receives nourishment through our IV. It lasts about 45 minutes until the IV drip is complete. Many patients use this time to read a book, catch up on emails, or take a well-deserved nap.

Many people feel the effects of the IV drip immediately. You may feel more alert or refreshed than before. How you will feel depends on your previous level of hydration and overall health. It may take several sessions to feel differently, especially if your vitamin and mineral levels were very low.

IV therapy is something you want to consider adding to your routine wellness regimen. Your body needs vitamins and minerals regularly, and our IV therapy is a safe and convenient way to administer and absorb those nutrients.
