IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy involves the delivery of fluids, vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream through an IV line in your vein.

When you take vitamins and supplements orally, they must first pass through your digestive system. Your digestive process limits how much of the nutrients your body absorbs. IV therapy ensures your body receives the full benefit of the nutrients and uses them immediately to support your biological functions.

Next Direct Primary Care offers in-office IV therapy services for adults. The medical providers customize an IV treatment to your specific health needs and medical challenges. They provide a range of nutrients, including high-dose vitamin C therapy.

When should I consider IV therapy?

The IV therapy services at Next Direct Primary Care can address a range of issues that leave you feeling unwell, including:

  • Stress
  • Infections
  • Dehydration
  • Hangovers
  • Colds and flu
  • Low energy
  • Slow metabolism
  • Hormone imbalance

You may also benefit from immune-boosting IV therapies that ease symptoms of chronic diseases like lupus, autoimmune disorders, and arthritis. If you have health conditions that increase your risk for nutritional deficiencies, regular IV therapy sessions can lower your risk for complications.

The providers evaluate your symptoms and health history to identify which nutrients you need so they can tailor a treatment plan for you.

What happens during an IV therapy session?

During your IV therapy session, the medical team at Next Direct Primary Care helps you get comfortable on an exam table or chair. They start an IV line in your arm and attach it to a bag of fluids.

The fluids slowly drip through the line directly into your bloodstream. You may feel more energized or enjoy better mental clarity while receiving treatment. However, it can take several hours to see the full benefit of IV therapy.

The medical specialists supervise your IV session to ensure your health and safety. They can also recommend when to schedule additional sessions to optimize your wellness.
