IV Therapy Q&A
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is a way of getting the nutrients you need for your body’s processes and systems to function efficiently. Before IV therapy at Be Well Medical Primary Care, your provider talks to you about your health and wellness to determine which nutrients – such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants – you need the most.
While taking nutritional supplements orally is certainly an option, and you can get the nutrients you need through the foods you eat, IV therapy offers a far higher absorption rate because the nutrients go straight into your bloodstream and not through your digestive system. You can experience the complete benefits right away.
When you come in for IV therapy at Be Well Medical Primary Care, your provider places a needle in your arm connected to a catheter. The catheter, a long narrow plastic tube, connects to a bag full of nutrients and a sterile saline base. Over the course of about 45-60 minutes, the solution flows into your vein as you relax.
What are my options for IV therapy?
Be Well Medical Primary Care offers a wide selection of IV therapy concoctions, each containing a unique set of nutrients for diverse benefits. After your IV therapy consultation, your provider may recommend:
Hydration Lactated Ringer’s Bag
Lactated Ringer’s (LR) bag is an intravenous solution that helps fight dehydration. It contains a sodium lactate solution similar to saline and increases your body’s fluid content.
The Regret Eraser includes a combination of nutrients to combat the consequences of certain poor decisions, like drinking too much during a night out.
Be Well Cocktail
The Be Well Cocktail includes a combination of nutrients to serve many purposes, like giving you more energy and boosting your metabolism.
Illness Buster is an IV therapy option with high vitamin C content. It offers immune support and can help your body fight an acute illness, like the common cold or flu.
Glutathione Push is an option for your IV therapy, or you can add it as a booster to any other IV bag. Glutathione enhances numerous body functions, including brain function, inflammation reduction, fat breakdown, and detoxification.
What are my options for IM injections?
Intramuscular (IM) injections are an alternative to IV therapy. The injections are also rich in vitamins and minerals, and you can choose from a selection according to your wellness needs. Instead of going into your arm via an intravenous drip, your provider injects them into the highly vascularized muscle so they can enter your blood.
Your IM injection options at Be Well Medical Primary Care are:
The B12 booster is rich in vitamin B12, or methylcobalamin. By getting this injection 1-3 times per week, you can experience better brain and nerve health.
The Be Booster contains a combination of B vitamins. They help regulate chemical reactions in your body to improve metabolism, cellular functioning, and other processes.
