IV Infusion Therapy Q & A

What is IV infusion therapy?

IV infusion therapy, often called IV nutrition therapy, has been used in the emergency room and surgical settings for decades to deliver medications directly into the bloodstream. Now, the technique is being used to boost nutrition at the cellular level. 

The process is simple and straightforward. Dr. Taweh uses a needle to place a thin medical tube into a vein on your arm. The other end of the tubing is secured to a bag filled with a solution of saline/ Lactated Ringer's solution and customized nutrients. 

As you rest and relax, that solution slowly enters your bloodstream one drip at a time. You’ll likely feel the effects right away. 

What kinds of health and wellness issues can IV nutrition therapy improve?

Most Americans go through each day in a state of low-level dehydration. IV nutrition therapy creates an instant hydration boost, helping provide your tissues and organs with the hydration needed to thrive. 

Prime Medi Spa offers more than seven IV infusion panels to choose from. Some of the health and wellness issues these blends can improve include:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cleansing and detox
  • Gastrointestinal support
  • Migraine and neurological health
  • Immune support
  • Brain support
  • Inflammation and pain

Some people come in for IV infusion therapy in preparation for a big athletic event like a marathon. Others use IV nutrition therapy to ease the symptoms of a hangover. These sessions are just another way to nourish and support the body for many. 

Is IV nutrition therapy painful?

Having an IV placed is not a painful process, especially when you rely on a provider with the skills and experience of Dr. Taweh. If needles make you uncomfortable, you can always listen to music or close your eyes during that part of the process, which usually takes less than a minute. 

Many people take this time to rest and relax. Dr. Taweh should do your session in less than an hour, and you’ll be able to return to normal routines immediately after your visit. People often report feeling invigorated, clear-headed and energized after their IV nutrition therapy.
