What You Can Expect During IV Therapy

If you’re always feeling tired and worn out, it might be time to consider the many benefits of minimally invasive intravenous (IV) therapy. Learn how IV therapy can replenish what your body is missing, so you can function at your peak.

Intravenous (IV) therapy is an effective way to improve your general health and wellness. When your body is lacking essential nutrients or you’re dehydrated, IV therapy can bring you back to life with the energy you need to keep moving.

YOURx Health offers in-office IV infusions under the guidance of a highly trained wellness team for both men and women. A wide range of ingredients are available to meet your needs and the team can customize an infusion to help you look and feel your best.

When to consider IV therapy

IV therapy is a safe and effective way to restore balance in your body by addressing nutrient deficiencies. Even when you eat a healthy diet, your body may not fully absorb the vitamins and minerals it needs to function optimally.

This type of therapy bypasses the digestion processes and delivers essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This allows you to enjoy the full benefit of the infusion to improve your health and wellness.

The team at YOURx Health may recommend IV therapy if you don’t feel well because of:

  • Pain
  • Dehydration
  • Hangover
  • Colds and flu
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Chronic diseases

You can also use IV therapy to boost your immune system, so you can better fight off acute and chronic illnesses. IV infusion can even increase the efficiency of your healing processes after an injury.

Customized IV infusions are available

The IV therapies available at YOURx Health can be customized by the wellness team to fit your specific needs. There are many ingredients that can go into an infusion including:

  • Calcium
  • Vitamins B and C
  • Magnesium
  • Amino acids
  • Glutathione (an antioxidant)

A popular IV infusion is the Myers’ cocktail, which contains essential vitamins and minerals like magnesium and B vitamins to relieve symptoms of migraines, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, and chronic sinusitis.

The team at YOURx Health can also add the anesthetic drug ketamine to your infusion to relieve chronic pain or stem cells that stimulate your body to produce new, healthy cells.

What to expect during your IV therapy

Your health and safety are the first priority of our team at YOURx Health. At your initial IV therapy session, we tell you what to expect before your session begins.

Before starting the IV line in a vein in your arm, we help you get comfortable in a plush reclining chair. Once the IV line is started, an infusion of essential vitamins, minerals, and other ingredients drip slowly into your bloodstream.

Many people tolerate the infusion well and stay relaxed through their treatment. Most treatments last between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on the type of infusion you receive and what condition you’re treating. You can bring along a book to read or your favorite music to listen to throughout your infusion. Some people are so relaxed during treatment, they fall asleep.

You may notice an improvement in how you feel during your session and for several days afterward. To stay on top of your symptoms and keep your immune system strong, we can recommend maintenance infusions spaced out over time.
