What Really is IV Therapy? –

You’ve probably heard so much about IV Therapy but do you really understand what it is and what it does? First off, let’s start by breaking down the word IV Therapy in general. IV means Intravenous. It’s a big word, I know but it just means administered through the veins. The word Therapy means treatment intended to relieve or heal. If you put both words together it gives you the perfect answer as to what IV Therapy is all about. 

The good thing about IV Therapy is the fact that all the vitamins and antioxidants are inserted directly into your bloodstream which results in faster results then If you were to take those vitamins orally. Even as an adult, there’s the chance that needles freak you out and that the thought of having it inside your arm flashes to bad memories or scarier thoughts but so many IV therapy reviews and healthcare professionals swear by it so there should be nothing to worry about.

While IV Therapy has many benefits, according to AZ IV Medics, some of the common uses are:

  • nausea
  • cold and flu
  • illness symptoms
  • vitamin deficiency
  • altitude sickness
  • overall wellness

The one thing about this procedure is that it’s fairly straightforward and easy. There are so many different types of IV therapy but regardless of what you get, the whole process is rather simple and uniform. There is always going to be a nurse that will walk you through the whole thing so that you know what you’re in for.

Once the IV is inserted in the bloodstream all you need to do is keep still as the vitamins will do their job. You are allowed to watch TV, listen to music, and even just scroll on your phone while the IV does its job, and after the procedure you can walk out of the office like nothing happened but feeling like your brand new self.

There are many different types of IVs so the types of ingredients in the liquid depend on what you’re getting. There are IVs for energy, jetlag, skincare, hair growth, and so much more. The options are endless and the world is your oyster at that point. If you wake up after a night out and need something to get you through the hard 9-5 day, there’s an IV for that specific reason. There should be no reason as to why you should have to walk around with the effects of last night lingering on you all day. IV therapy is just a great way to feel like a better version of yourself.
