IV Nutrition Therapy Q & A

What is IV nutrition therapy?

Intravenous (IV) nutrition therapy is an effective way to deliver essential vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream. Through IV nutrition therapy, Dr. Nair can help improve your overall health, increase your energy, and boost your immunity.

This type of treatment is also ideal for treating symptoms of a variety of underlying health conditions, including:

  • Colds and flu
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Autoimmune disorders

Dr. Nair can also use IV nutrition therapy to treat the side effects of dehydration or a hangover and make it easier for your body to eliminate toxins.

What nutrients are used in IV nutrition therapy?

There are a variety of vitamins and essential nutrients that Dr. Nair can use in your therapy. Some of the most common ingredients include:

  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Magnesium
  • Amino acids
  • Glutathione (an antioxidant)

After a review of your symptoms and your overall health, Dr. Nair determines which nutrients would benefit you most.

What can I expect during IV nutrition therapy?

During your treatment, Dr. Nair establishes an IV line, usually in your arm, to deliver the necessary nutrients. He customizes the mix of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients based on your overall health needs.

The intravenous delivery of the nutrients goes directly into your blood and bypasses the digestion process. This ensures you receive the full benefit of the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that you can’t get when taking oral supplements.

You can sit back and relax while the nutrients move into your blood. Treatments are given in a comfortable office environment and the length of treatment depends on the mixture you receive. Immediately after your treatment, you can go back to your usual activities without any downtime or recovery.

How long until I can see the results of IV nutrition therapy?

Many people experience an immediate improvement in their symptoms during and right after therapy. However, it can take several days for you to achieve optimal results of IV nutrition therapy.

Dr. Nair can suggest the right timeline for additional IV nutrition therapies based on your results and your specific health needs.
