IV Therapy Q & A

Integrative Medical NY

What is IV therapy?

IV nutritional therapy is a fast and effective way to get the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need for optimal functioning. In the presence of chronic infection, inflammation, heavy metal toxicity, or other health problems, it’s hard for the body to absorb nutrients from your diet or vitamins in pill form.

IV therapy utilizes intravenous injections that deliver these nutrients directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract. As a result, your body assimilates them faster and more efficiently.

How does IV nutritional therapy work?

Your treatment plan starts with a comprehensive assessment of your symptoms with an emphasis on finding the cause of your problem. Your physician determines which vitamins or minerals can best support your healing and creates a custom IV infusion in the right dosage.

During the treatment, you relax while the IV floods your body with the nourishment it needs to heal fully. Sessions can last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, and you’re free to read, use your phone, or rest.

What results do you get from IV therapy?

One of the advantages of IV nutritional therapy is you can experience immediate benefits like increased energy and improved mood. Other results include:

  • Better hydration
  • Improved immune system
  • Muscle recovery
  • Clearer skin
  • Detoxification
  • Reduced inflammation

If you have a chronic illness or an immediate health problem, IV nutritional therapy can complement other modalities and accelerate your healing timeline. Your unique “cocktail” of nutrients is specifically designed so that the infusion gives you the best results.

How often should I get IV therapy?

The team at Integrative Medical NY works with each patient to develop a unique treatment protocol. Depending on your symptoms, you might benefit from a weekly or bi-weekly infusion.

Your treatment isn’t simply used as a stand-alone quick fix but as part of a more holistic approach to help you find long-term balance and healing.
