IV Infusion Therapy Q & A

What is IV infusion therapy?

IV infusion therapy exposes your body to vitamins, nutrients, and hydration through intravenous means. When you take vitamins or nutritional supplements orally, they break down in your stomach and digestive tract. Although there’s nothing wrong with this, your body can only absorb about 50% of the vitamins and nutrients provided.

IV infusion therapy bypasses your digestive tract altogether. During treatment, you receive a liquid mixture of vitamins and nutrients through a small tube inserted into a vein. Higher levels of minerals and nutrients enter your bloodstream, allowing for a greater uptake by your cells. 

Increased nutrient uptake improves your general health and well-being while making it easier for your immune system to fight off illness.

Are there different types of IV infusion therapy?

At Ribera Healthcare Clinic, the team offers several types of IV infusion therapy, including:

Vitamin therapy

Vitamin therapy is a type of IV infusion therapy designed to address vitamin or nutritional deficiencies. If you don’t take supplements or eat a healthy, balanced diet, you’re also more likely to experience nutrient deficiencies. Over time, those deficiencies negatively affect your immune system and increase your risk of serious health problems. 

IV fluids

IV fluids are a type of infusion therapy used to improve hydration. This type of IV infusion therapy is particularly beneficial for people who don’t drink enough water, or experience headaches, fatigue, and other uncomfortable side-effects due to travel or partying.

What medical conditions can benefit from IV infusion therapy?

IV infusion therapy can ease uncomfortable symptoms associated with a variety of medical conditions, including:

  • Migraine
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Pain
  • Allergies
  • Sinuses
  • Respiratory tract infection

At Ribera Healthcare Clinic, the team also recommends IV infusion therapy for athletes, weekend warriors, and busy professionals. If you’re physically active or always on the go, your immune system undergoes daily stress. IV infusion therapy provides support, ensuring you stay healthy, and perform at your best. 

How long does IV infusion therapy take?

The length of your IV infusion therapy appointment depends on your health history and the type of fusion you’re receiving. Most appointments take 60-90 minutes. While you’re receiving your IV infusion, you can read a book, scroll on your smartphone, or close your eyes and relax.
