IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a treatment that boosts your hydration and nutritional status. Good nutrition is the foundation of good health. Unfortunately, your body may not be getting all the nutrients it needs to maintain your health due to issues with digestion, poor food choices, or simply because the food supply isn’t as nutritious as it could be.

IV therapy at Advanced Integrated Medical Center bypasses your digestive system and directly infuses the nutrients your body needs into your bloodstream to improve nutritional deficiencies and restore nutritional balance.

Am I a good candidate for IV therapy?

The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center determines if you’re a good candidate for IV therapy after a consultation. Dr. Stevens conducts very thorough examinations to fully understand your health issues and concerns so he can develop the most appropriate treatment plan that not only relieves your immediate health issues, but also places you on the road to wellness.

During your consultation, Dr. Stevens talks to you about your diet and lifestyle to help determine the best IV therapy cocktail for you.

While IV therapy is safe for most people, it’s important that you share your medical history with Dr. Stevens during your consultation. Combining IV therapy with certain health conditions or medications may put an additional strain on your body.

What conditions benefit from IV therapy?

The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center understand the benefits good nutrition has on your body and overall health and wellness. The health conditions that may benefit from IV therapy include:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Crohn’s disease or ulcerative arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Post weight-loss surgery

You may also benefit from IV therapy if you have a cold. Infusing your body with an extra dose of nutrition may help boost your immune system to lessen the duration of your cold and improve your symptoms. IV therapy also serves as a tool for body detoxification, and improves blood circulation and nutrient delivery to promote healing of injured tissue.

After IV therapy, many patients report an improvement in energy, mental clarity, and immune health.
