What is IV Nutrient Therapy?

When you think of an IV drip, you probably picture a trip to the ER or admission to the hospital when you're sick. But IV Therapy can be used for so much more! Whether you’re dehydrated, debilitated from a migraine, hungover, suffering from a cold or flu, looking for wellness and beauty, or just have low energy, our IV treatments containing fluids, vitamins, minerals, and medicines will provide you with the care you need in the comfort of your own home.

An IV drip offers fast delivery of nutrients, 100% absorption, and complete rehydration instantly! Getting nutrients delivered directly into the bloodstream ensures that you receive the full benefit of the vitamins you are receiving. Malabsorption, gut issues, and digestive degradation of delicate nutrients can all effect how much nutrition you receive when taking supplements orally. Additionally, many of our therapies contain much higher dosages of vitamins and minerals that, while safe, are difficult for the GI system to handle. Why would you need or want such high dosages of vitamins or minerals? Because in many cases, higher doses are necessary in order to achieve optimal therapeutic benefits. 

The IV Advantage

An IV drip can quickly and effectively alleviate uncomfortable symptoms like migraines, nausea, body aches and many more, speeding up your recovery from hangovers, cold, flu, food poisoning and other conditions. IV drips can also be used to deliver nutrients that are best delivered intravenously, such as glutathione and NAD+, which can help improve your overall wellness, leave you feeling energized, and just all-around good!

  • Book an appointment online or by phone.

  • I'll call you right away and talk with you about your health history, current health needs and determine if you are a candidate to receive treatment under our standard treatment protocols.

  • At the time of your appointment, I will arrive at your home with sanitized equipment and supplies.

  • You choose the spot in your home where you are most comfortable receiving treatment. 

  • I will perform a physical assessment, take vital signs, obtain your medical history, and get your consent for treatment.

  • Using aseptic technique, a needle guided catheter will be placed in your arm and the needle will be retracted leaving only a small flexible catheter.

  • A bag of IV Saline will be started, and if ordered, nutrients and medication will be admixed into the bag.

  • Your vital signs will be checked before, during, and after treatment, and you will be assessed for any adverse reactions throughout the entire process.

  • The treatment generally takes between 30 mins to 1 hour to infuse. NAD+ can take up to 4 hours depending on tolerance.

  • Feel free to pet your dog, cuddle with your children, watch a movie, or get some work done during your infusion.

  • When the IV drip is complete, I will remove the catheter form your arm, assess the site, and dress the area with a wrap to prevent bruising.
