Questions & Answers
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is a popular functional medicine therapy that our medical team uses to get vital nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream. The goal of IV therapy is to replenish what your body needs to function at its very best.
Some of the conditions IV therapy helps are:
- Chronic fatigue
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Colds and flu
- Macular degeneration
- Essential tremors
- Parkinson’s disease
IV therapy perfectly complements other functional medicine services and holistic approaches offered at Hansen Health Solutions.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
IV therapy allows you to get bigger doses of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants than you could get from oral supplements. Another important aspect of IV therapy over oral solutions is that the nutrition completely bypasses your gastrointestinal processes and goes directly to your bloodstream so your body can put it to immediate use.
The intake of high doses of vitamins and minerals through an IV helps to:
- Boost your immune system
- Speed recovery from illness
- Give you energy
- Improve acne, eczema, and skin tone
- Reduce inflammation
- Minimize allergies
- Relieve chronic pain
- Decrease inflammation
Athletes frequently use IV therapy for muscle recovery and enhanced performance.
What nutrients can I get through an IV?
Our medical team individualizes every IV with what you specifically need to meet your health goals. Your intravenous drip may include any of the following:
- Vitamins B, C, D, and E
- Amino acids
- Folinic acid
At Hansen Health Solutions, there are a myriad of vitamin combinations that your provider customizes with your medical history and specific needs in mind.
What happens during an IV therapy session?
Our medical team meets with you prior to your IV therapy session to determine what types and amounts of vitamins and nutrients will serve you best. Then, one of our nurses inserts the IV into your vein, where the infusion lasts for about an hour.
You can sit back, relax, check your texts, read a book, or stream a movie. When your IV bag is empty, you’re free to go and return to your normal activities. There’s no downtime needed with IV therapy.
