What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a way to get targeted nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Even if you follow a well-balanced diet and take your daily multivitamin, many nutrients, like B vitamins, are delicate and break down easily during digestion. When this happens, your system may never absorb the essential nutrients or you may only absorb small amounts.
IV therapy drips are tailored to your health and include nutrients that your practitioner believes are most likely to help you, including magnesium, calcium, and vitamin C.
Some IV therapy treatments, known as chelation therapy, include a mixture of components that bind with metals in your blood. Once bound, your system flushes out the metal particles that are believed to cause chronic illnesses and pain-causing conditions.
What conditions can IV Therapy treat?
IV therapy and chelation treatments are a safe and effective way to improve an array of symptoms associated with chronic conditions. For example, if you have fibromyalgia, which causes widespread debilitating nerve pain, a surge of B vitamins and other nutrients can help improve nerve function and reduce related fatigue issues.
IV therapy and chelation therapy can even be beneficial if you have:
Insomnia or low energy levels
IV therapy and chelation therapy can help with other issues as well. Talk with Dr. Nelson about what you’re experiencing and any symptoms that are affecting your daily life.
What can I expect during IV Therapy?
Generally, you don’t need to do anything to prepare for your IV or chelation therapy session. However, because some therapies could interact with certain medications, let Dr. Nelson know about all of your prescriptions, supplements, and over-the-counter medications ahead of time.
Your entire IV therapy session at Root Medical is designed to be a relaxing experience. After your practitioner places your IV line, you just have to lie back and relax for about half an hour until your drip is complete. You can read, take a nap, or work on your tablet during this time.
Since you won’t have any downtime after your IV treatment, you can get right back to your regular activities. You can schedule future IV and chelation therapy sessions weekly, monthly, or as needed.
