IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

You’re probably familiar with the role that intravenous (IV) therapy plays in medicine. The practice of accessing the bloodstream directly and introducing fluids, nutrients, and medications in this manner is a common occurrence in hospitals across the nation. 

IV therapy allows physicians to bypass the digestive system and deliver hydration, nutrients, and medications in a manner that makes them immediately available. This approach gives your cells the support they need swiftly and effectively. IV vitamin therapy has the ability to deliver nutrients at a cellular level, without the side effects that are often associated with taking them orally. 

What types of IV therapy are available?

The Holgistic providers begin by completing a thorough health assessment. This gives your practitioner the information needed to create your customized IV therapy plan. 

While many IV treatment clinics offer a menu of predesigned IV options, Holgistic prefers to take a customized approach. A compounding pharmacist creates the solution of saline and nutrients to meet your specific needs. 

Your IV therapy may include supporting your:

  • Immune response
  • Energy levels
  • Weight-loss progress
  • Pain management
  • Allergy care
  • Performance and recovery
  • Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)

Some people turn to IV therapy to address a specific complaint, while others come in for routine IV therapy to boost overall health and wellness. 

How can IV therapy help treat addiction?

Addiction takes an incredible toll on your body, affecting virtually all of your systems and organs. IV therapy can help restore optimal hydration and replenish depleted micronutrients. 

Withdrawals and cravings can lead many people to relapse and resume their habits, however, NAD IV for addiction can be a part of your toolkit for a successful recovery. Unlike oral supplements, NAD IV can bypass your digestive system for 100% absorption and maximum effect. This can be extremely beneficial to those who are suffering from chronic illness that can cause nausea, vomiting, and upset stomach. We offer individualized, full-body detox, curbing withdrawals, restoring neurological and cellular health.

As you move through the recovery process, you may find yourself struggling with cravings or emotional distress. IV therapy helps you achieve a more balanced physical and emotional stability, which helps make addiction recovery easier to navigate. You may also notice improved sleep quality, more energy, and better mental clarity. 

Can I get the nutrients and hydration I need through food?

If you have any type of imbalance in your digestive system, this will disrupt your ability to absorb your nutrients. Drinking alcohol, eating foods high in sugar and fat could negatively impact your ability to absorb nutrients needed with just diet alone. Many people suffer from a lack of nutrients, the causes can be related to poor diet, food processing, an increase in age or obesity. Orally, even in supplement form, administration of vitamins and micronutrients cannot reach the high levels that can be attained through IV administration. 

In a perfect world, everyone would meet their hydration and nutritional needs through high-quality food and clean water. In the real world, getting an optimal blend of nutrients and sufficient hydration is incredibly challenging. 

Research shows that most Americans are chronically dehydrated. With today’s fast-paced lifestyles, drinking enough water each day is not an easy task. 

While you should be meeting most of your nutrient needs through the foods you choose, reaching the right volume and balance is difficult. Supplements can help, but a significant portion of even the best quality oral supplements pass right through your digestive system. 

IV therapy offers a way to support your cellular needs quickly, safely, and efficiently. If you’d like to learn more, call Holgistic or book a visit online today.
