IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a versatile and customizable treatment available at Apex Integrated Medical Center. Many unexplained symptoms are linked to a deficiency or imbalance in your vitamins, and IV vitamin therapy helps you balance your levels quickly. 

When you come to Apex Integrated Medical Center for treatment, a provider assesses your symptoms to decide what vitamins you need the most. Then, you have the option to customize your IV drip therapy with boosts to target more specific needs, like nausea, immunity, weight, and more. 

How does IV therapy work?

When you get IV therapy, a provider finds a vein in your arm to use for the IV needle. They place the needle in your vein and allow the vitamin cocktail to stream directly into your blood via gravity as the bag sits above you. 

Getting vitamins directly into your veins is a faster and more effective way to absorb the number of nutrients you need than ingesting them.

When you take vitamins orally, many of them get lost along your digestive tract before they have a chance to reach your bloodstream. On the other hand, IV vitamins give you immediately noticeable results.

What can an IV therapy treat?

You can treat a wide variety of conditions and symptoms with IV therapy. Since vitamins control many of your body’s processes, lacking them usually results in feelings of sickness, discomfort, or general unwellness. 

Symptoms and results of vitamin deficiencies include:

  • Fatigue
  • Tiredness
  • Fogginess
  • A weak immune system
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dull skin
  • Moodiness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Weight gain

If you have these or other symptoms that can’t be explained by another condition, a provider at Apex Integrated Medical Center can help guide you to the appropriate option for an IV drip and select boosters as they’re needed. You can also get IV therapy to relieve you of a particularly bad hangover, allergies, or even the flu.

If you haven’t been feeling like your usual motivated and energetic self lately, a vitamin deficiency may be at fault. For quick support and relief, call Apex Integrated Medical Center or go online to book your appointment today.
