There are also many instances where the GI tract degrades certain vitamins and other nutrients or vitamins are not absorbed and intravenous administration provides effective replacement and delivery.

Is IV therapy safe ?
IV therapy can be safe when it is performed by medical professionals who are licensed and trained in this therapy. Medical professionals with the proper training will take all the appropriate precautions to minimize the risk of infection and other complications. Our medical professionals can guide you and give you medical advice in regards to risks and benefits of the treatment.
Risks that can be associated with IV therapy include:
Infection: If the area that the needle is inserted is not clean or if the tubing used for IV therapy is not sterilized, there is a risk of an infection being introduced into the blood stream.
Infiltration: Infiltration refers to IV solution being delivered into the surrounding tissue rather than the vein. This can happen when the IV catheter is placed incorrectly or the vein is not able to handle the fluids that are administered. This is usually not an issue and your body will reabsorb the excess fluids and vitamins.
Phlebitis: Phlebitis refers to inflammation of the vein that arises by the needle that is inserted. This can can cause some pain and swelling at the injection site which usually resolves without any issues. In some rare cases a wrongly placed catheter can lead to clotting of the vein.
Allergic reactions: Depending on the ingredients that are being administered, some people can have an allergic reaction to the substance that are being administered through the IV. In general we do not see allergic reactions to iv vitamin therapy.
Overdose: If too much of a substance is accidentally administered through an IV, it can cause an overdose and potentially serious side effects. Overdose is usually not a concern with iv vitamin therapy as the excess is excreted by the kidneys.
Our medical professionals will review the risks and benefits of IV therapy with you and help you decide which is best for you.
How long does iv therapy last ?
The duration of IV therapy is dependent on what is being administered, the condition being treated, the age of the person and the size of the veins.
For example, in someone who is healthy and has a healthy heart, IV fluids can be administered in a short period of time, such as 15-30 minutes, to quickly rehydrate a person who is dehydrated. On the other hand, IV antibiotics or other medications may be administered for a longer period of time. IV Iron infusions are usually administered slowly as patients are monitored for any allergic reactions or reactions.
IV Vitamin therapy sessions are usually short and around 20 to 30 minutes. In some cases it can last around 30-60 minutes. Some patients receive IV NAD treatments and those require more time as it needs to be administered slowly.
What is iv therapy used for ?

Infection: IV antibiotics are an effective way to treat certain types of infections, as they are delivered directly to the bloodstream and can reach high concentrations in the body more quickly than oral antibiotics.
Nutrient deficiencies: IV therapy can also be used to provide nutrients and vitamins that a person may be deficient in, such as vitamin C, vitamin B12, B complex vitamins, magnesium, glutathione, which can be helpful for conditions like the flu, fatigue, migraines, and asthma, certain skin conditions, insomnia and more.
Cancer treatment: High doses of IV vitamin C have been studied as a potential treatment for cancer. Research is currently undergoing in regards to high dose vitamin C for the treatment of cancer and its effectiveness. Our healthcare professionals recommend that you consult with your oncologist if you are interested in iv vitamin c as a potential adjunct therapy to traditional therapies such as chemo or radiation.
Postoperative recovery: Certain studies have found that IV therapy may help facilitate and speed up postoperative recovery. Vitamin C for example has skin healing or wound healing properties. Fluids and nutrients can help the body in state of recovery and injury as well.
Sports injuries: IV therapy may help to speed up the recovery process from sports injuries by providing fluids and nutrients to the body.
Aesthetic: Glutathione and vitamin C have known health benefits for skin health. In addition there are some studies that suggest they can stop melanin production and thus assist with skin whitening. Other research has shown that glutathione can help in brighter skin tone, reducing dark spots, reducing blemishes and acne.
Digestive system issues: Some patients do not absorb vitamins the way they should and there are certain conditions such as patients who suffer from acute and chronic pancreatitis, short bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowl disease, pernicious anemia, post surgical weight loss surgery such as gastric sleeve or gastric bypass that iv replacement therapy can be particularity helpful for.
Altitude sickness: IV therapy can be helpful in the treatment of altitude sickness and can help alleviate headaches, nausea and dizziness.
Antioxidant properties: Glutathione and vitamin C for example are high in antioxidants that are not normally absorbed through the GI tract at high doses. Intravenous route can provide high amounts of antioxidants directly into the blood stream.
Boosters: Intravenous route can help boost levels of certain vitamins and minerals with ease without degradation and breakdown from the GI tract.
