Benefits of IV Nutrition Therapy: Exploring the Advantages of Intravenous Treatment

Whether you’re run down and need a boost, suffering from chronic fatigue or autoimmune disease, or just feeling dehydrated, IV therapy is a powerful, proven tool in improving health.

Whether you’re looking to improve your overall health or heal from illness, there are so many options it can get overwhelming. With a variety of vitamins and supplements readily available, where do you begin?

The first step is to determine your health goals. What are you hoping to achieve? Maybe it’s increased energy, hydration or restoring your health at a deeper level. Whatever your goals are, there are many benefits to IV therapy.

IV Therapy has been shown to:

  • Increase energy levels
  • Cleanse your body of toxins and free radicals
  • Treats nutrient deficiencies
  • Promote weight loss
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Eases anxiety and promote relaxation
  • Cure hangover symptoms

These are only some of the many health benefits that you can experience with IV therapy. At Hormones by Design in Austin, whether you are in need of essential nutrients or need to address symptoms related to dehydration, anxiety, pain, or chronic illnesses, our providers will prescribe the right therapy for your body. And the good news is that you don’t have to limit yourself to just one IV solution!

How Does IV Therapy Work?

At Hormones by Design, only our trained experts, such as a Registered Nurse (RN) or paramedic, are responsible for administering and monitoring your IV drip. During a treatment, each IV drip bag is filled with a liquid mixture of saline along with vitamins and minerals. As you sit comfortably, the professional administering the drip will find and access a vein to secure the needle. Once the needle is secured, a tube is connected that delivers the solution from the drip bag into the bloodstream.

By bypassing the gut and going straight into the bloodstream, IV therapy delivers a potent dose of energizing, immune-boosting nutrients, helping your body repair at a cellular level.

The administering professional will monitor your infusion to make sure the IV drip is flowing correctly and that you are comfortable throughout the treatment. Depending on the IV infusion that you are receiving, the IV therapy treatment may last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, but sometimes may take longer.

What are the indications for IV therapy?

IV therapy is indicated for a variety of reasons, including dehydration, nutrient deficiencies, chronic fatigue, and immune system support. IV therapy is often recommended for those who have difficulty absorbing nutrients through their digestive system, such as those with inflammatory bowel disease.

Are there any downsides to IV therapy?

While IV therapy has many potential benefits, there are some risks associated with the procedure. These include infection, blood clots, and vein irritation. It is important to discuss any potential risks with your healthcare provider before undergoing IV therapy.

How often should I receive IV therapy?

The frequency of IV therapy depends on the individual and their specific needs. Some people may benefit from weekly treatments, while others may only need occasional treatment. It is important to discuss the appropriate frequency of treatment with your healthcare provider.

What is the duration of the benefits of IV therapy?

The duration of the benefits of IV therapy varies depending on the individual and the specific treatment received. Some people may experience immediate relief of symptoms, while others may require multiple treatments to see a significant improvement. It is important to discuss the expected duration of benefits with your healthcare provider.

At Hormones by Design in Austin, our IV center team is highly skilled and experienced, ensuring that you get what you need, safely and effectively. We offer a variety of IV Therapy treatments to address everything from nutrient deficiencies, dehydration, a suppressed immune system, and more.
