What’s more is that you can reap the benefits at very little cost to you, as opposed to the IV treatments of the past.
In this article you will find useful and relevant information on IT wellness therapy treatment, how it can work for you, the risks and benefits and the details on the infusion process.
What is IV Therapy?
An IV wellness therapy treatment is the administration of vitamins that are delivered intravenously using an IV fluid pack, for the benefit of your health and wellbeing.
Also called an IV wellness infusion, a mixture of vitamins is created, based on your unique needs and medical history, and administered in a certified clinic by a registered nurse. Your infusion can consist of a cocktail of vitamins or a single vitamin, depending on your needs and state of health.
IV Therapy can be used to address serious health problems like muscle spasms, pain, asthma, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, allergies, sinus, respiratory tract infections, angina and hyperthyroidism.
More recently IV wellness therapy is used as a hangover cure the morning after a night out, to boost energy levels, post workout to help athletes recover, as an immunity booster to prevent illness and an infusion can be administered pre- night out to prevent hangovers. This type of preventative measure can ensure you enjoy that special occasion.
How Does IV Therapy Work?
One of the reasons why the vitamin infusion works so well is that it is administered through an intravenous injection which means the vitamins go straight into your bloodstream, so absorption issues are circumnavigated. Absorption rates are 90% higher by IV than oral consumption.
One infusion typically takes 15-30 mins per treatment. The nurse can come to your home, or you can go into a clinic for your treatment.
Be prepared to provide your medical history as this is needed to ensure your safety. You should inform the nurse, not only of any prescription medication you are taking, but also any dietary supplements, over the counter medications, of your exercise regime and any other health measures you take.
You must make sure the nurse is certified to work with IV wellness therapy and that the clinic you go to is a reputable one. Make sure the clinic is hygenic, the nurses hands are washed and a new needle is used for every different infusion.
Why is IV Therapy the New Trend in 2022?
Health trends are when scientific breakthroughs provide health benefits and improve our daily lives. In the 19th century sanitization and hand washing were first practiced, which we have a lot to thank for! Personalized nutrition and ‘activewear’ were health trends of the tweenies (the 2010 decade) that have stuck. IV wellness therapy seems to be another major turning point for health and wellness, we can now take more responsibility for our own health as these types of treatments are more accessible than ever before. Preventative measures are invaluable to good health and longevity, and we now have them at our disposal. Being able to treat those previously thought of as small problems, prevent larger ones from occurring and aid in our good health and general wellbeing.
From celebrities to sports stars, IV wellness therapy is growing in popularity worldwide. From glowing skin, to increased energy, post workout recovery and getting over that awful hangover – IV therapy is a health craze taking the world by storm.
What Fluids and Vitamins Are in an IV Bag?
The infusion consists of your choice of vitamins dissolved in a saline solution. The vitamins used are water soluble, so your body absorbs what it needs and the remainder are excreted.
Some of the vitamins that could be used are:
Magnesium is an important mineral used in the body for muscle and nerve function, regulating blood pressure, and supporting the immune system. It is one of seven essential macrominerals and humans need these types of macronutrients in relatively large amounts. It can assist in relieving migraine headaches and anxiety,
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, which means your body cannot produce it; it must be consumed. Vitamin C is used in the body to boost antioxidant levels, lower blood pressure, protect against gout attacks, improve iron absorption, boost immunity, and reduce heart disease.
B vitamins are 8 water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism and synthesis of red blood cells. Dietary supplements containing all eight are referred to as a vitamin B complex. B-Complex helps regulate bodily functions and its benefits include carbohydrate breakdown, mood enhancement, regulating blood sugar levels, improving cognitive function, enhancing mood, helping with depression, and improving sleep quality.
Amino acids are building blocks of protein and play an important role in regulating hormones, building muscles, regulating enzymes and antibodies, and maintaining bone strength, as well as promoting loss of weight, and reducing muscle soreness.
Risks of IV Therapy
Thanks to modern medical science most risks are controllable therefore the news is not so bad, but we like to keep our clientele informed, so here goes…
The risk of infection is unlikely, even though there is a possibility due to a needle penetrating the skin. It’s important that the drip is administered in a clean environment for a healthy infusion.
There is a risk of a vitamin overdose, which could have adverse effects and there is a risk of fluid overload, which is why you undergo a medical check before you choose your IV treatment to ensure you are medically well enough to mitigate the associated risks.
Air embolisms, blood clots, and vein irritation and inflammation all are risks associated with an IV line, but if administered by a professional these are limited.
The Pros of IV Therapy

IV wellness therapy also has workout benefits in terms of how you build muscle during your session. Muscle mass is healthy.
