IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is an emerging wellness treatment that delivers an infusion of vitamins directly to your bloodstream through an intravenous drip. IVs have been used in medical settings for decades to provide medicines to patients. Today, you can have IV therapy to rehydrate your body and replenish any vitamin deficiencies that are affecting your health and wellness.

While the team at Portland Wellness Center customizes your vitamin infusion, one of the most popular and common IV therapy combinations is the Myers’ cocktail. The Myers’ cocktail combines several different B vitamins, vitamin C, and other nutrients to boost your energy levels, immune system, and is believed to reduce symptoms of conditions such as asthma and fibromyalgia.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

IV therapy offers a variety of health benefits. The treatment delivers vitamins and nutrients directly to your bloodstream, which ensures your body is able to absorb everything it needs. When you take vitamins orally, your body may not absorb all of the benefits through your digestive tract.

IV therapy also delivers more rapid results, since you don’t have to wait for the digestive process. Your infusion is also combined to provide precisely what your body needs, especially compared to over-the-counter supplements.

Other benefits of IV therapy include:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved immune function
  • Improved mood and mental clarity
  • Enhanced skin, hair, and nail health and appearance

What should I expect during IV therapy?

IV therapy is a relaxing and therapeutic experience. You begin your treatment with a consultation and blood panel, which provides Dr. Bain with information about your overall wellness and any hormonal imbalances or vitamin deficiencies.

During your IV therapy, you relax in a comfortable chair for approximately an hour. Dr. Bain or a member of the team at Portland Wellness Center inserts the IV needle into your hand or arm and attaches your customized drip. Then you simply rest as you receive the vitamin infusion. You can read, watch television, or even nap.

When your infusion is complete, you should feel energized and ready for anything. You don’t need to take time off to recover and can immediately return to your regular activities. Dr. Bain provides a customized treatment plan to optimize your health, and you may have additional infusions to maintain the benefits.
