What Is IV Therapy?

IV therapy is a hydration method that uses an IV catheter. Inside of the IV bag is a mixture of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals in a saline solution filled with electrolytes. These IV packages come in various mixtures for revitalization, nourishment, hydration and more. A registered nurse will administer the IV to you.

An IV therapy session will take around 30 to 60 minutes, and you’ll feel the effects immediately. Having the nutrients sent directly to your bloodstream allows them to instantly start doing their job. As a result, you can feel better faster.

There are numerous types of IV therapy packages, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs, whether you’re interested in IV therapy for long-term benefits or you need it to take care of a cold.

How Often Can You Get a Myers’ Cocktail?

The Myers’ cocktail consists of vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium and calcium. It can reduce the chance of asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, seasonal illnesses and more. Additionally, Myers’ cocktails are helpful for hangovers, exhaustion and other temporary ailments.

When trained professionals give patients the Myers’ cocktail, it’s completely safe. Always consult your physician before you try IV therapy, especially if you have health conditions that could impact your experience. It’s always best to talk to your doctor before you take any form of supplement, including IV therapy, as consuming too much of one vitamin or mineral can be harmful.

Ultimately, most people can have an IV injection two times a week, and after about four injections, you’ll start feeling the beneficial side effects more consistently. Once you reach the fourth injection, you can continue on the same frequency or change your routine to having IV therapy less often based on your needs and your physician’s recommendations.

How Often Should You Get IV Therapy for Anti-Aging?

How Often Should You Get IV Therapy for Anti-Aging?

Having a routine for anti-aging IV therapy can help your skin look younger over time. While hydration is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking glowy and supple, vitamin B12 specifically may be able to help with anti-aging when it comes to the brain. Therefore, an IV drip packed with hydration and B vitamins can be a helpful way to aid in your anti-aging efforts.

Scheduling IV therapy for one session monthly is a great way to add to your anti-aging regimen.

One-Time IV Therapy Options

Aside from consistent IV therapy treatments to get your essential vitamins and nutrients, you can also get one-time treatments for specific situations.

For example, when you’re hungover, a hangover IV drip with IV fluid, vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, glutathione, anti-nausea medicine and anti-inflammatory medicine is the perfect way to get back on your feet after a night of drinking. Similar IV therapy options include drips for the flu, food poisoning, jet lag, migraines and more.

These IV treatments won’t necessarily be something you receive on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Instead, they’re helpful solutions when the situation arises. Over time, you may find that they’re so helpful you want to incorporate them into your health and fitness regimen. As stated, before you do so, check with your doctor to ensure you’re making a smart choice for your specific health situation.

AREAS WE SERVE

How Often Should You Do IV Therapy?

How often do you stay hydrated with the daily recommendation of water intake? Many of us live busy lives, so we forget to hydrate ourselves properly every day. Additionally, it can be tricky to stay on top of other areas of your health, including how many important vitamins you consume. That’s why an IV drip can be such a helpful option for certain people.

Generally, you’ll want your IV therapy sessions to happen one to two times a week or at least once every two weeks. If you’re taking IV therapy for specific ailments, maintain the routine your doctor lays out for you. Once you reach your health goal, the frequency of which you continue your IV therapy sessions is up to you and your doctor.

In the end, how often you participate in IV therapy is up to your specific needs and your health goals. If you’re not sure where to start, contact us and we’ll be happy to help you!
