IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a way of getting the nutrients your body needs so you can function and stay energized. Your body relies on electrolytes like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to run smoothly, but it isn’t always easy to get enough of all of them through your diet. 

Oral supplements can give you the high doses of nutrients you need too, but IV therapy is more beneficial overall because it allows those nutrients straight into your bloodstream. 

Because of this, they bypass any digestive problems you have that might inhibit absorption. Your digestive system can’t absorb nutrients at a rate of 100%, so feeding them into your bloodstream is the best way to rapidly replenish them. 

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

Cross Hope Treatment Centers offers several forms of IV therapy, many of which are customizable according to your personal nutritional needs. During a consultation, your provider assesses your needs and expectations before recommending an appropriate formula. 

IV therapy can help alleviate:

  • Hangovers 
  • Headaches
  • Jet lag
  • Pregnancy symptoms
  • Fatigue
  • Dehydration
  • Low immunity
  • Nausea

Depending on the nutrients in your IV drip, you might experience a boost in energy, immunity, athletic recovery, or weight loss.  

What should I expect during IV therapy?

Your visit to Cross Hope Treatment Centers for IV therapy begins with a consultation. Your provider decides how to formulate your IV therapy depending on your needs and expectations. They use beneficial vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, usually diluted in saline. 

Your provider observes you for your safety during IV therapy. They insert the catheter into your vein as you relax in a comfortable chair, where you sit for the duration of the IV therapy session. You may read a book, listen to music, or otherwise entertain yourself for the 20-60 minutes of your treatment. 

The effects of IV therapy set in rapidly and usually last for days or weeks depending on the type you get. To experience ongoing benefits, your provider might suggest getting IV therapy on a regular basis at Cross Hope Treatment Centers.
