IV hydration and vitamin therapy is a means by which nutrients are given to a patient through their circulatory system. An intravenous solution contains a specially balanced combination of vitamins and minerals. By administering the solution intravenously, it ensures maximum absorption since it is put straight into your bloodstream.
IV hydration and vitamin therapy is an effective and minimally invasive therapy that is well tolerated by most patients. It carries a low risk of serious adverse side effects. If the solution is administered quickly, there may be a sensation of warmth and flushing. This is due to the rapid rise of magnesium. Some patients may also have the taste of vitamins in their mouth shortly after the infusion is started; however, this can be limited by having a meal before coming in for an IV and having a healthy snack on hand to enjoy throughout the infusion. Because it accesses the bloodstream, IV vitamin therapy should be administered only by a licensed provider who can ensure the delivery is safe and the dosage is effective.
Patients vary in the number of treatments needed, but most require infusions one to two times per week. Some patients experience improvement after only three treatments, and many report significant healing by the fifth or sixth infusion. Patients who have chronic conditions may need ongoing treatment of several IVs per week, or periodically every few weeks.
