What is IV therapy and how can it improve your health?

  • Posted on: Nov 30 2020

When we think of an IV, we may think of medication being administered to an individual through the vein and directly into the bloodstream. However, IV therapy may also be a way of administering vitamins to an individual or hydrating them when fluid levels in the body are low. The team of Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center is pleased to provide a variety of IV therapies, including vitamin administration.

What is IV vitamin therapy?

To obtain the right vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, we can turn to many healthy fruits and vegetables. However, even the most nutritionally-conscious individual may find themselves lacking in certain vitamins that can help them function at their best. This is why IV vitamin therapy is a popular treatment at our practice, allowing patients to supplement with vitamins and minerals to ensure they feel top-notch every day! With IV vitamin therapy, patients can obtain a wide range of nutrients through an IV and directly into the bloodstream with the assistance and help of a trained medical professional.

What can IV vitamin therapy achieve?

Patients who have the following concerns might benefit from IV vitamin therapy at Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center:

  • Detoxification of the body
  • Low energy levels
  • Cold and flu prevention or recovery
  • Improving recovery and healing
  • Dehydration
  • Hangovers from high levels of alcohol
  • Mood concerns, including high levels of stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Chronic headaches and migraines
  • Poor nutritional absorption due to certain gastrointestinal conditions (Crohn’s, celiac, IBS, etc.)

What vitamin and nutrient IV is right for me?

We strongly encourage patients to be open and honest with their doctor about how they are feeling and what they are struggling with medically so that the team can make a knowledgeable recommendation regarding the type of IV to have administered.
