IV Vitamin/Micronutrient Drip
What is an IV Vitamin Drip?
IV Vitamin Drip, also referred to as intravenous micronutrient therapy, administers a high dose of minerals and vitamins directly into your bloodstream. While your body ordinarily absorbs nutrients slowly, an IV vitamin drip allows it to rapidly absorb nutrients at higher doses.
When vitamins and other essential nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the digestive system, where many nutrients get lost and are not absorbed. With IV infusion, nutrients and minerals can go to work, instantly replenishing and revitalizing your body and organs from the inside out.
When nutrients are able to bypass the digestive system in this way, you can be assured that you are receiving the nutrients your body needs, no essential vitamins or minerals are being overlooked in your diet, and that your body and organs are properly absorbing the vitamins and minerals you need. This method is especially beneficial for people experiencing digestive complications or irregularities, who may struggle with the natural absorption of certain nutrients and vitamins. While it is always important to choose foods rich in nutrients, it does not always mean that those vitamins and minerals are reaching your body to the fullest. Additionally, IV vitamin therapy allows larger quantities of vitamins to enter your system than can be safely tolerated orally. The “concentration gradient” allows these vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed rapidly and efficiently and to transfer nutrients directly into your cells, yielding optimal results.

During your consultation, our nurse will explain to you the benefits and potential risks of IV vitamin drip therapy.
She will ask you questions about your medical history, current health status, and any medications you are taking to ensure that vitamin drip therapy is safe for you.
She will then assist you in choosing a formula that best addresses your needs.
During the vitamin drip administration process, our nurse will insert an IV catheter into your arm or hand to administer the vitamin drip. This process is typically painless, but you may feel a slight pinch as the needle is inserted.
Once the IV catheter is in place, we will monitor the drip carefully throughout the treatment to ensure that you are receiving the full benefits of the vitamin drip therapy.
If you experience any discomfort during the treatment, such as pain or swelling at the site of the IV catheter, we will adjust the flow rate of the drip to ensure that you are comfortable. Our nurse will work closely with you throughout the treatment to ensure that you have a positive experience and that you receive the full benefits of the vitamin drip therapy.
After the vitamin drip treatment is complete, your nurse will carefully remove the catheter and apply pressure to the site to minimize any bleeding or bruising.
After your IV treatment is complete, we will provide you with aftercare instructions to help you maximize the benefits of the vitamin drip therapy.
These instructions may include guidelines for staying hydrated, avoiding strenuous activity, and getting plenty of rest in the hours following the treatment.
Our nurse will also provide you with information about any potential side effects of the treatment and how to manage them if they occur.
Finally, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your progress and to provide additional vitamin drip therapy if necessary. This appointment will give us an opportunity to assess your response to the treatment and to make any adjustments to your therapy plan as needed.
By taking these steps during the post-drip care process, we can ensure that you have a positive experience with the IV vitamin drip therapy and that you continue to receive the full benefits of the treatment in the days and weeks following your appointment.
