IV Therapy Q&A

IV therapy is a method to deliver fluids, vitamins, and minerals directly into your bloodstream. Intravenous (IV) bypasses the gastrointestinal system for maximum potency and the fastest delivery method available.

Bypassing the digestive system also eliminates the uncomfortable symptoms of taking oral supplements, such as diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. The Freeman Medical Clinic team can customize your treatment to address your specific health concerns.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

IV therapy is a safe and minimally invasive delivery method. It also allows for better absorption of vitamins and minerals than oral consumption because nutrients lose their potency as they move through your digestive tract. IV therapy also gives the team better control over how much of a certain nutrient enters your system.

The team combines several vitamins, minerals, peptides, and antioxidants to customize your IV bag. Depending on your health concerns or goals, IV infusion therapy can:

  • Increase energy levels
  • Boost metabolism
  • Improve hydration
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Enhance complexion
  • Treat headaches
  • Improve digestion
  • Enhance athletic performance
  • Boost immune function
  • Sharpen concentration
  • Help prevent certain diseases

Because IV therapy enters your bloodstream directly, many people experience its effects immediately. That’s why IV is the gold standard delivery method for fluids when you’re severely dehydrated.

You may feel more energetic, positive, and hydrated for several days after IV therapy. Since the treatment is safe with minimal side effects, you can return regularly for maintenance sessions.

What happens during IV therapy?

The team strives to create a relaxing and stress-free environment during IV therapy. When you arrive, you can sink into one of the clinic’s zero-gravity massage chairs and relax during your treatment. After the team inserts the IV in your arm, you’re free to read, watch TV, or listen to music during your 45 to 60-minute session.
