FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why not just take supplements?
Many people do not absorb vitamins in their digestive track very well. For those dealing with digestive issues such as constipation, chron’s, celiac, IBS it can be helpful to bypass the digestive track and go directly to the bloodstream for high absorption at a cellular level.
Does it hurt?
We use very small needles as well as a very small localized numbing agent so you will feel virtually nothing. That being said, everyone has a different pain threshold. Some find it painless and others feel slight discomfort with the needle insertion. Most people find the IV infusion itself quite calming and relaxing. Some customers might feel some warmth as certain nutrients enter the bloodstream such as B vitamins or magnesium.
Is it safe?
Yes, vitamin IV therapy is very safe provided it is administered by a licensed medical practitioner and overseen by a Medical Director. We use high quality vitamins, minerals and amino acids sourced from certified suppliers. Also, IV therapy has been utilized for over 50 years and was developed by Dr. John Myers (the Myer’s cocktail).
How often should I get an IV for it to be effective?
Depending on your nutritional needs you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. People who get regular IVs will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance. Some get an IV weekly, multiple times a week, several times a month or as needed.
What results can I expect?
Most people notice an increase in energy levels and an overall health enhancing boost. Optimum vitamin and mineral levels support proper metabolism, cortisol levels, cellular health, mood, and good sleep patterns. Vitamin therapy can also be an immune system boost which is very helpful during the winter months and during allergy season.
Is there any reason I should not do an IV?
We believe IV therapy can be beneficial for a wide variety of individuals. We also inform our customers of the fact that we are not a medical treatment center and therefore we do not treat or diagnosis health issues.
