What is IV Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) Therapy is a powerful method of delivering essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals directly into your bloodstream.

Since IV therapy bypasses the digestive system, cells can absorb nutrients much faster than they would otherwise. Because of this, many people experience symptom relief in mere minutes.

IV therapy can help reverse nutrient deficiencies and relieve symptoms related to a variety of conditions, from migraines to nausea and the cold or flu.

How does IV Therapy Work?

IV therapy works by delivering vitamins and minerals into the bloodstream through a drip. Usually, this takes place in a medical office under medical supervision. But you can also receive IV therapy in the comfort of your home via a mobile provider. The process usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour.
Here's how the IV therapy process works:
Assessment 1920w.png
A medical professional takes your medical history and performs a short medical exam. An IV is administered only after a thorough assessment has been conducted to determine the most appropriate treatment.
Monitoring 1920w.png
Your IV therapy and vitals are monitored to make sure the IV drip flows at the correct rate until the IV is complete.
The professional inserts a tiny needle into one of your veins and secures it. A tube connects the needle to the IV drip. The drip consists of saline, vitamins, and minerals customized to each patient's symptoms.
Care 1920w.png
Once the IV has been administered, it is removed carefully, and pressure is applied to the site to prevent bruising.

What Happens To Your Body When You Get An IV Drip?

After receiving an IV drip with vitamins, your body will feel the effects within minutes. This includes hydration, wound healing, damaged cell repair, electrolytes, joints, muscles, and bodily functions.

Additionally, various medications can be added to IV drips to relieve pain, nausea, and other unpleasant symptoms.

Common Uses of IV Therapy

A hangover, motion sickness, or a side effect of your medication may cause nausea and vomiting, making it difficult to keep water or medicine down. As IV fluids bypass the digestive system, they can work to alleviate nausea and vomiting more rapidly.
Cold and Flu
IV therapy can help reduce the severity of cold and flu symptoms like body aches, nausea, and vomiting. The Myers Cocktail is the best option for those with the flu or a cold. It contains multiple vitamins and minerals that support your immune system function. Pain can be managed without narcotics with IV add-ons such as Toradol.
Since many Americans don't receive all the nutrients they need from food, they don't feel as healthy as they should. This can lead to chronic fatigue, poor sleep, low energy, and other problems. People who receive IV therapy report improved mood, better sleep, and higher energy levels.
Dehydration can cause headaches, body aches, and other serious symptoms. Whether you’re dehydrated from sports-related training, illness, or hangover, IV therapy can restore hydration, boost energy, and deliver electrolytes fast.
Food Poisoning
IV therapy can reduce nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea from food poisoning. The IV delivers hydration, antacids, and anti-nausea medications directly into the body. Avoiding the stomach allows it to heal, making it more comfortable overall.
IV therapy after a night of drinking can hydrate your body, replenish lost nutrients, flush out toxins, and get rid of headaches and nausea quickly. You’ll begin to feel better within 30-60 minutes and won’t waste a whole day in bed.
Migraine and Headache
IV therapy for headaches can also help alleviate pain associated with migraines. Headache IV includes pain relief, hydration, and magnesium to calm tension. It only takes 30-60 minutes, and you’ll feel much better.
Morning sickness
In pregnancy, morning sickness can make it challenging to stay hydrated and get enough nutrients. IV therapy ensures you get all the vitamins and minerals you and your baby need. It can replenish your body’s nutrients, boosting your energy. You can also add anti-nausea medication to the foods you need to stay healthy and strong.

How Long Does IV Therapy Take and How Long Do the Effects Last?

IV therapy typically takes 15-90 minutes to complete, and some patients may feel the effects as long as four days to two weeks afterwards. 

The IV drip infusion itself usually lasts a few hours after absorption, but this may vary depending on your hydration level and how recently you have urinated. IV fluids typically leave your body within a couple of hours, but the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the IV therapy may remain in your body for days, weeks, or even months, depending on your individual needs.

Moreover, the IV therapy itself is relatively quick, but the benefits can last for a much longer period of time.

Benefits Of IV Therapy For Health & Wellness

IV therapy can help you feel better and improve your overall health and well-being. This is because it delivers essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive system. This can be especially beneficial if you are sick or have difficulty absorbing nutrients from food.
Vitamin IV therapy offers these additional benefits:
Corrects vitamin deficiencies or imbalances
A more effective way to absorb vitamins compared to oral vitamins or food
Bypasses the digestive system for direct delivery of nutrients
Delivers a concentrated dose of vitamins
Optimum dosing based on body needs
Provides a suitable alternative to oral supplements for those who cannot ingest them or have not responded to them

Drawbacks of IV Therapy

Despite the potential benefits of IV therapy, there are also some drawbacks that should be considered. These drawbacks can be minimized with close supervision by a qualified healthcare professional, but it is important to be aware of them before undergoing IV therapy.
Vitamin IV infusions present some challenges, including:
Some vitamins can cause problems in high concentrations. Too much vitamin A, for example, can cause headaches, dizziness, and even death.
Studies showing vitamin infusions' effectiveness in mainstream medicine are limited.
IV therapy should not be used long-term or as a substitute for a healthy diet.
Complications Electrolyte balance can be affected. Heart attacks can be caused by too much potassium, for example. can increase in mainstream treatment practices that are unregulated.
If you have kidney or heart disease, the treatment may not be suitable since the organs cannot handle high concentrations of vitamins at one time.

What kind of Vitamins and Minerals can you Get Through an IV


Vitamin B Complex

Vitamin B complex, including vitamin B12, plays a role in multiple bodily functions like blood sugar control, metabolism, and energy production. It can help you feel refreshed and revitalized whether you're sick, hungover, or just under the weather.

B complex may also help prevent migraines or stop them faster once they've started.

Vitamin B 12

Vitamin B12 is added to most banana bags (drips), giving them a distinct yellow color.

B12 is vital for energy, weight management, and digestive health to metabolize proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in the body. Vegans, vegetarians, and those with poor nutritional intake often require this supplement.

Vitamin C

Your body needs Vitamin C to form blood vessels, muscle, cartilage, and collagen in bones. When you are deficient in vitamin C, it's easier to get sick.

Vitamin C supports healthy immune system function, and it’s vital for your body's healing process.


Zinc is an essential mineral that plays an important role in many bodily functions, including immunity, wound healing, and cell growth and development. A deficiency in zinc can make you more susceptible to infections and can also impair your body's ability to heal from injuries.

Anti Nausea Medicine

IV anti-nausea medication can help to stop nausea and vomiting quickly and effectively. This can help you to feel better and start to recover.

Anti-Pain Medicine

IV therapy can help reduce inflammation and pain, as many nutrients have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

Frequently Asked 


Q. How long does IV therapy take?


A: The length of time that IV therapy takes depends on the type of IV therapy you are receiving and the amount of fluid that needs to be infused. However, most IV therapy sessions take between 15 and 90 minutes.

Q. Is IV therapy better than drinking water?


A: IV hydration uses vitamin- and mineral-rich saline solutions, which provide faster and more effective dehydration relief than ordinary water. Due to the IV's direct entry into the bloodstream, symptoms are relieved sooner.

Once the needle is in place, you should not feel any pain. The IV site may feel slightly tender or bruised after the procedure, but this should go away within a few days. If you experience any pain or discomfort during IV therapy, be sure to tell your healthcare provider. They may be able to adjust the needle or IV bag to reduce your discomfort.

Q. Does IV therapy work for weight loss?


A: IV therapy for weight loss works by supporting your body's natural processes and functions involved in burning fat, boosting metabolism, and regulating appetite.
