Who is a good candidate for IV Therapy and Vitamin Injections?
Naturopathic intravenous therapy is used to administer nutrients, vitamins and minerals necessary for living. Additional substances such as antioxidants and herbal components can be used as well depending on the patient’s wellness goals. Intravenous therapy allows direct passage of these necessities into the bloodstream through an IV inserted into the arm, allowing for faster repletion and quicker effects.
Nutrients are often taken in through the mouth, whether through food or supplements and are absorbed through the digestive tract into the bloodstream. The digestive process only allows for a certain amount of these nutrients to be transported to your cells, regardless of how much you have eaten. With IV therapy and injections, the digestive process is bypassed, allowing for optimal absorption into the cells. This means that the individual getting IV therapy will reap the maximum benefits of the vitamins, nutrients or minerals included in their unique cocktail.
Since critical nutrients, vitamins and minerals are not fully absorbed by the body and are “lost” in the digestive process, IV therapy and vitamin injections can deliver large doses directly into the bloodstream, which is then distributed to your body’s cells as needed. The absorption of these vital substances is much more rapid and effective when compared to oral intake, meaning you will feel the effects faster and stronger.
Each vitamin, mineral, and nutrient will affect the body in a different way, so the effects of IV therapy or injection is dependent on what is administered. For example, Vitamin B12 can boost your energy, metabolism and recovery from illness or tissue damage. Magnesium and zinc can help to reduce fatigue and improve sleep quality. Skin conditions are expected to improve when your body’s cells are well nourished, and hydration will increase. IV therapy and vitamin injections can be custom formulated for each individual based on their needs and potential symptoms they are experiencing. Most IV therapy providers have a menu of standard available treatments, aimed at replenishing the vitamins and nutrients that are most commonly low in people’s bodies. There may also be standard formulas targeted towards certain results, such as fighting the early signs of a cold, helping to cure a hangover or overcoming jet lag.
IV therapy sessions are usually completed within 30 to 60 minutes, but session length can vary depending on the type and amount of infusion. As with any needle use, you will feel a slight pinch when the certified practitioner is placing the IV, though you should not feel any pain or irritation afterwards for the duration of the infusion. Once the IV has been inserted, it will be secured so it doesn’t move or fall out.
After that, you get to relax in the provided chair or bed while the pre-determined formula is injected into your body. One of the IV specialists or a nurse will be by to check on you periodically to make sure everything is going well, and to monitor the administration of the IV. After the solution has been administered, the IV will then be removed and you will be free to leave. IV therapy does not have any recovery time, and you can continue on with your daily activities after your session.
While there is no risk in vitamin and nutrient intake, needle injection may pose a risk to certain individuals. An ideal candidate for IV therapy has not experienced difficulty with previous injections and does not have any contraindicating allergies. IV therapy is not considered safe for women who are pregnant, planning or trying to become pregnant or are breastfeeding. Interested candidates will work with a certified IV practitioner, such as the team at OmniLife Wellness, to determine what injection formula will be best suited for them.
