Intravenous treatment, often known as IV therapy, is a medical practice that includes injecting fluids and nutrients directly into a person's bloodstream. This approach is done via a clean and secure intravenous access point to administer the solution straight into the circulatory system. The result is enabling quick and effective body absorption.

IV therapy is used for a variety of purposes, including the administration of fluids, medicines, and nutrition. It is useful for rehydrating patients, administering drugs, providing critical nutrients, and managing certain medical disorders.

IV vitamin treatment, also known as intravenous micronutrient therapy, can provide a large dosage of vitamins and minerals straight into the circulation. However, there is little scientific evidence. Its efficacy may vary based on the demands of the individual.

IV therapy is done using a syringe to deliver a liquid into the body during injection. The injections can be administered by a variety of methods, including Intradermal injections, intramuscular (IM) injections, and subcutaneous (SubQ) injections.

As a rapid way of receiving hydration, IV therapy is considered a safe procedure. The IV therapy works because the liquid bypasses the stomach and go straight into the bloodstream. (which can be a concern for some individuals) Therefore, it's important to make sure you're getting the treatment in a safe, clean environment by a trained professional using sterile needles.

Infection, vein irritation, blood clots, rashes, allergic responses to the injected medications, and possible side effects from the high dosages of vitamins and minerals are the main concerns connected with IV vitamin therapy.

Even though the procedure is considered safe, there are some risks and side effects because of the fact that it bypasses all of your body’s gatekeeping functions. Those include blood clots, infections at the injection site, rashes, air embolism, etc.

Having 1-2 sessions per week is advised for people wishing to restore their natural energy levels or battle weariness. Weekly treatments can help reduce symptoms and enhance general well-being in situations of chronic sickness or illness, such as cancer or multiple sclerosis.

Most IV fluids last in the body for a couple of hours after absorption. YOu may pass some fluids more quickly if you are well-hydrated and haven’t urinated recently.

The 7 primary reasons why patients choose IV therapy are: rehydratation to maintain proper fluid balance, medication administration, nutrient supplementation, treatment for dehydration, surgery, and recovery, management of medical conditions, or immediate relief.

Some of the disadvantages of IV therapy include electrolyte equilibrium disruption, high levels of vitamins in your body resulting in headaches and dizziness, and the need to be administered in a hospital.

After IV therapy, the liquid will provide your body with a natural boost of energy. You will feel energized after one-hour post-treatment. For example, inserting amino acids will help you replace the constant need for coffee, soda, and other caffeinated drinks that can otherwise flood your body with unnecessary sugar.
