Why IV?

When we consume foods or supplements in pill or liquid form, they need to travel through our digestive system before they can start being utilized by our bodies. It is estimated that as much as 50% of the population has issues with absorption in their digestive systems, meaning that they never get the full benefits of the nutrients that they take in. Pills in particular are associated with low absorption rates.

Vitamins and minerals in food break down during storage, cooking and metabolism. With a specially formulated IV therapy drip, you know that you are getting every bit of the benefit with the most efficient administration method possible.

When you send vitamins, minerals and hydration directly into the bloodstream, you bypass the digestive system altogether. There are no issues with substances being changed during metabolism or failing to be absorbed. Your body gets 100% of the benefit of these powerful ingredients that are exactly the right recipe for you.

IV Vitamin and Nutrient Infusions allow higher doses of targeted supplements, with better absorption, and faster delivery to the cells throughout your body. Often a few weeks of therapy will:

How is IV Therapy Administered?

It starts with getting labs drawn and having them reviewed by your provider. The results of your baseline assessment will be used to determine which key nutrients will benefit you the most.

Even though IV therapy involves placing a needle into the arm, the experience is comfortable and almost pain free in our expert hands. A typical IV takes approximately 20 minutes to 1 hour to administer depending on the type of IV required.

Our Treatments emphasize natural solutions. Typical treatments for vitamin and nutrient deficiency include:

1.  An Appropriate Nutritional Program

2.  An Appropriate Vitamin/Mineral/Nutrient Replacement Program (Including oral and/or IV Replacement)

Intravenous vitamin and nutrient infusions may be administered once or twice a week. Often a few weeks of therapy will markedly improve symptoms related to chronic disease and allow the transition to the appropriate oral supplements. IV vitamin and nutrient infusions may offer the best alternative to improve your health and wellness naturally.

IV therapy with nutrients may be needed only a few times or needed a couple times weekly for an extended period of time. Your provider will make a specially formulated and custom plan just for you depending on your needs. Follow up with your provider after 6-8 weeks for additional treatment customization.

The greatest advantage to IV nutritional therapy is that the body gets vital nutrients, amino acids, vitamins and minerals immediately. Any condition that requires the body’s immune system to combat a disease or illness may greatly benefit from this procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for IV nutritional therapy to work?
The IV procedure should take about 30-60 minutes. Typically patients will feel better 3-4 days afterward.
How long does IV nutritional therapy last?
Depending on the treatment plan your doctor has prescribed, treatment can occur every few days, to every two weeks with the goal of moving to a maintenance phase. Determining what your end goal is and how aggressive the treatment plan is are influential factors to how long your therapy will last and how frequently it will occur. With consistent IV therapy, the results will last longer as your body improves and reach the goals set by you and your doctor.
Is IV nutritional therapy safe?
IV nutritional therapy is safe! It is one of the quickest ways to get nutrients into your body which can promote health in a variety of ways. This type of therapy can boost your energy levels, improve your mental health and even reduce symptoms for migraines and asthma.
What are the risks of IV nutritional therapy?
When receiving IV treatment, The Healing Sanctuary provides quality one on one care to ensure you are comfortable and that your treatment is going well. Our Registered Nurses are thoroughly trained on IV etiquette and do a great job to ensure you are not only comfortable, but that the IV is properly and safely administered. Although highly unlikely, some potential risks are irritation in the vein or skin and blood clots. Another potential side effect could be an air embolism which is an air bubble that gets stuck in a vein or artery. If untreated, air embolisms could cause further issues. It’s important to speak up if you’re feeling discomfort so your doctor can help you feel comfortable and reduce the likelihood of the above mentioned side effects.
Should I eat before my IV treatment?
Consult with your doctor about their expectations and everything you need to do before your treatment. Staying hydrated before your appointment is a crucial part of your preparation for IV nutritional therapy. It is highly recommended that you eat something before your appointment since you’re more likely to be nauseous if your stomach is empty. Having a full stomach before the treatment allows your blood vessels to open up and provides more nutrients to your body.
