IV Therapy Q&A

What is IV nutritional therapy?

The concept of IV nutritional therapy, sometimes called micronutrient therapy, is simple. The goal is delivering nutrients directly into your bloodstream, where they can go to work immediately to enhance your overall health and wellness. 

If you’re familiar with IVs through hospital or emergency medical care, the process for IV nutritional therapy uses the same approach. These treatments infuse your blood with a customized blend of micronutrients and saline.   

What are some benefits of IV therapy?

Did you know that most Americans walk around each day in a constant state of mild dehydration? It can be challenging to get the hydration you need just by drinking water, but without proper hydration, your cells cannot perform their necessary functions properly.

IV nutritional therapy gives you an immediate hydration boost, and you’ll likely feel the difference right away. Many people who try IV nutritional therapy are so pleased with the results they make an effort to increase their daily water intake to sustain that amazing, healthy feeling. 

The custom blends of nutrients used in IV therapy can deliver exactly what you need to thrive. There are many different options from which to choose, and the providers at Salient Health Primary Care can guide you toward the treatment best suited for your specific set of needs. 

Some of the areas of focus for IV therapy include:

  • Performance and Recovery to help your body reach peak performance and recover after intense workouts
  • Energize Me to fight off fatigue and boost mental and physical energy 
  • Hangover Cocktail to support your body’s vitamin and mineral needs after a night on the town
  • Myers’ Cocktail to deliver a high dose of the nutrients needed to look and feel your best every day

There are also IV therapy blends that can correct specific nutritional deficiencies or enhance your health after an illness. Just let your provider know what you’d like to achieve through your sessions, and they will customize your treatments accordingly. 

What happens during IV therapy sessions?

Having an IV placed is a simple and straightforward process. You’ll rest comfortably in the treatment chair as a highly skilled practitioner uses a hollow needle to place a very thin medical tube into your vein.  

This process takes just seconds to complete. You might feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin, but there is no pain involved. The other end of the tubing connects to your customized nutrition infusion, and the solution slowly enters your bloodstream as you rest, relax, or even listen to music. 

The entire treatment takes less than an hour to complete. There’s no need for advance preparation or recovery time. You’ll feel great after your session, and if you’re like many people, you’ll incorporate IV nutrition therapy into your ongoing wellness routine.
