IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV (intravenous) therapy provides a combination of high-tech medical treatments with a relaxing spa experience. Adding vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids directly into your bloodstream allows your body to absorb more than with oral supplements. Dr. Jen knows the immediate absorption of vitamins increases your energy and your overall well-being.

Why do I need a boost?

In addition to being aware of what you eat and getting enough sleep, it's important to focus on how you fuel your body. Getting the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables isn’t as easy as overeating sugary drinks, caffeine, and sweet snacks. Without a well-balanced diet and enough exercise for both your body and mind, you’re not going to feel healthy and full of energy for all the activities in your life. IV therapy gives you the vitamins and minerals you might be missing in a convenient and relaxed spa-like setting.

Is IV therapy the same as taking a supplement?

Even if you’re committed to taking vitamins and eating a balanced diet, you’re only feeling the benefits of about 30% of everything you take orally. IV therapy ensures much-needed vitamins and minerals are distributed into your bloodstream directly for higher absorption. Also, Dr. Jen notes that as we age, some of the antioxidants our body makes, like Glutathione, slowly shrink. Less Glutathione in your system allows wrinkles and dark spots on your skin.

What happens during my IV therapy appointment?

Once you arrive at Ultimate Solutions Medical Spa, you’re greeted by the friendly staff. They clean your arm and give you an IV by inserting a needle into your arm. You’ll feel a small sting and pinch at first, but it quickly goes away. After Dr. Jen inserts the IV, you’ll feel a cool sensation in your arm. For the next 30-45 minutes, you sit comfortably while the IV bag empties.

How often do I need IV therapy?

Dr. Jen suggests IV therapy monthly or even every other month. You feel the benefits right away, including more energy and a better night’s rest. Dr. Jen also recommends eating superfoods like:

  • Salmon
  • Almonds
  • Quinoa
  • Broccoli
  • Turmeric
  • Egg yolks
  • Avocado
  • Celery

A combination of eating a nutritional diet and getting regular exercise and plenty of rest maximizes the benefits of IV therapy. During your appointment, Dr. Jen can give you more information about getting healthy and protecting your body to keep it healthy.
