IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

When you take supplemental vitamins and minerals orally, they go through your digestive tract, and your body only partially absorbs them. This puts you at risk for vitamin deficiencies that can negatively affect your health.

Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This method allows you to receive the full benefit of these nutrients and optimizes your cellular health.

Valley Natural Health also offers injections of supplements if you’re not interested in IV treatments.

When should I consider IV therapy?

The Valley Natural Health team offers different types of IV therapy in-office to improve your health and relieve symptoms of certain acute and chronic illnesses.

You might consider IV therapy as part of your treatment plan for:

  • Colds and flu
  • Asthma
  • Sinusitis
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Autoimmune disease

You can benefit from IV therapy if you’re looking to boost your overall immune health and increase your energy levels.

IV therapy can also benefit you if you’re dehydrated or an athlete wanting to boost your performance or speed up your recovery after an injury.

What’s involved in IV therapy?

During your IV therapy appointment, the Valley Natural Health team starts an IV line in a vein in your arm. They slowly drip essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients through the line.

The team can determine which nutrients are right for you based on your goals for treatment, your medical history, and your current health. Common ingredients the team uses in IV therapy include:

  • B complex vitamins
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • Glutathione
  • Amino acids

Throughout your treatment, you can sit back and relax. Some people begin to feel the benefits of IV therapy right away. However, it can take a few hours to receive the maximum benefit of your therapy.

You may consider receiving IV therapy just a few times or on a regular basis to maintain good health. The medical team can determine how often you can receive treatment based on your health.
