What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a treatment that can give you a boost in energy, support your immune system, and improve certain symptoms associated with infection, toxins, dehydration, or a lack of nutrients.

While sound nutrition and dietary supplements can provide most of the body’s nutritional needs, factors such as stress, illness, overtraining and poor lifestyle choices may impair proper absorption and delivery of nutrients. With IV therapy, nutrients go directly into your bloodstream and you absorb 100%. You may feel the effects almost immediately.
Specialty IVs, including ozone, NAD, vitamin C, and others, can help address a variety of chronic or degenerative conditions. IV therapy can provide additional support and nutrition for those dealing with cancer.

What can IV therapy treat?

You can use IV therapy as a treatment for general fatigue and for symptoms of certain conditions. If you simply seek extra energy to get through a stressful week, IV therapy can be the pick-me-up you need. It can also help relieve:

  • A weakened immune system
  • Viral illness
  • Jet lag
  • Dehydration
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Overtraining

If you’re uncertain about IV therapy for your condition, the medical team at Tri-Life Health can evaluate your situation and determine if you would benefit. Your provider may also recommend IV therapy as part of a multimodal treatment plan.

What should I expect during IV therapy?

When you come to Tri-Life Health for IV therapy, you discuss your symptoms, medical history, and expectations for treatment. The appropriate IV therapy for your health condition will be advised.

During the treatment, you relax in a comfortable reclining chair. One of the Tri-Life Health RNs will start your IV in a suitable vein using an IV catheter. Once your IV therapy is dripping, you sit comfortably for 30 minutes to one hour, or more, as the nutrients enter your system. During this time, you can read, listen to music, and use electronic devices. A nurse will monitor you at all times.

The way you feel after your treatment depends on the IV Therapy that you receive and what is being treated. You might feel an instant boost in energy, or you might notice a difference in the way you feel the next day. What to expect will be discussed with your nurse prior to treatment.
