IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a way to get nutrients into your bloodstream that may be lacking or out of balance. Getting the nutrients you need with your diet alone is usually simple, but an imbalance can occur for one or several reasons. 

Your gut flora might inadequately absorb the nutrients you eat, or alcohol might cause you to lose them because it’s a diuretic. Certain diets can also leave you lacking in essential nutrients. 

What IV therapy blends might I receive?

Avesta Ketamine and Wellness offers several beneficial nutrient blends for IV therapy sessions, including:

  • Rehydration infusion for detoxification and fluid balancing
  • Glutathione infusion for detoxification and immunity
  • Immunity infusion for healing and immunity
  • Vitamin D shots for vitamin D deficiency
  • Glutathione add-ons for any infusion
  • Myers’ cocktail

Myers’ cocktail, a popular and well-known immune-boosting infusion, includes a collection of high potency vitamins and other micronutrients like B-complex, vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium. You also have options for add-ons like medicine for pain or nausea. 

When should I consider IV therapy?

IV therapy can relieve the effects of various activities and occurrences that take a hefty toll on your body. It also restores a balance among nutrients that you either don’t get in your diet or cannot absorb properly. 

Avesta Ketamine and Wellness discusses your symptoms beforehand and your provider may ask about your lifestyle and behaviors. Depending on the nutrients and add-ons included in your infusion, IV therapy can help you:

  • Prepare for surgery
  • Recover after surgery
  • Recover after an intense workout
  • Improve your immunity to avoid the flu and other illnesses
  • Boost your energy
  • Reduce the effects of jetlag
  • Treat a hangover

The micronutrients in IV therapy support better cell functioning throughout your body, so you feel better in several ways once your treatment is complete. You feel more energized and have an improved sense of wellness while the effects last. 

How long do the effects of IV therapy last?

There are a few factors that can influence how long the effects of your IV therapy session will last, including the amount you exert yourself throughout the day physically and your general diet. 

You can return for another infusion when you feel like you need one. Some people can go for weeks still feeling the effects of their initial infusion, while others may require a boost within a week. 

What should I expect during infusions?

Your IV therapy infusion takes 30-45 minutes. During this time, there are many ways you can relax or entertain yourself. You can bring a book to read, or you can listen to music. You can even bring a snack to enjoy during the infusion.
