There are many medical practitioners who disagree with the effectiveness of vitamin infusions. The arguement is that a healthy diet and exercise will produce the same results. Unfortunately, in today’s fast-paced world not all of us eat a healthy diet or exercise as much as we should. Consider those who eat a restrictive diet, either by choice (a vegan) or by necessity (celiac disease) or who are suffering from a disease (cancer) that makes it hard to obtain the nutrients their bodies need for optimal functioning. There is growing medical evidence that points to the benefits of vitamin infusions.

Depending on the particular infusion and whether or not you are receiving it to treat a specific ailment, the frequency of IV vitamin infusions can vary considerably. Some patients elect to get an IV infusion up to twice a week. Usually, one session a week for three weeks is enough to help you reach your health target. After that, most people will benefit from treatments usually spaced about two weeks apart once their nutrient levels become stabilized. Some people who have particular health issues may benefit from a series of 6 weekly infusions initially. You have the option to receive therapy on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. We recommend that you receive an infusion when you desire to boost your energy level, are experiencing a more than normal stressful life or just want to get back to your best self. Each individual’s nutritional and hydration status is considered when recommendations are mede.

IV hydration therapy, IV infusion therapy, and IV vitamin therapy are all terms used to describe the process of administering nutrients and fluids directly into the bloodstream of patients.

IV hydration therapy is often employed to help muscles recover after working out, alleviate symptoms of a hangover, prevent migraines, and much more.
Increased energy is noticed by most people however this may vary depending on your nutritional and hydration status. Some people have reported a vitamin taste in their mouth and their urine having a vitamin smell. That is totally normal since the body eliminates the nutrients once the body has used them. Most people can expect their nutrient levels to remain elevated for between two and three weeks after each treatment.
