IV Therapy Q&A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a holistic treatment in which your provider inserts fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream for quick delivery and better absorption. Doing so can boost vitamin and mineral levels within your body, hydrate you, and improve your overall health and wellness. 

Wagon Healthcare offers IV fluids, B12 injections, and more via IV therapy. Your IV infusion might contain vitamin C, other antioxidants, B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, glutathione, or combinations of these nutrients.

What does IV therapy help treat?

Some of the many benefits associated with IV therapy at Wagon Healthcare include treatment of or symptom relief from the following:

  • Dehydration
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiencies
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Migraines
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Chronic pain
  • Sinus and respiratory problems
  • Toxin buildup
  • Hormone imbalance

IV therapy can boost your body’s immune system, correct dehydration from alcohol or extreme exercise, contribute to healthier skin, and help you gain energy. It can relieve stress, remove body toxins, and optimize hormone balance.

Is IV therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for IV therapy, your Wagon Healthcare team reviews your medical history and asks about your symptoms. They complete a virtual physical examination or a house call. 

Your primary care specialist recommends you undergo blood tests to assess hormone levels, vitamin and mineral levels, and more. They can use the results to customize each IV therapy treatment.

What should I expect during and after IV therapy?

During IV therapy, you relax in a comfortable chair. Your provider inserts a tiny needle into a vein in your arm and begins an infusion of IV fluids and nutrients. The mixture slowly moves into your bloodstream, hydrates you, and boosts nutrient levels within your body.

Each treatment might last 20-60 minutes, but every patient is different. You may have more energy right away after treatment, with additional improvements in the way you feel appearing over time. After your session, you can resume a normal routine since there’s no downtime associated with IV therapy.

How often should I receive IV therapy?

Your Wagon Healthcare provider personalizes IV therapy sessions based on your blood test results, medical diagnosis, and symptoms you may have. They may recommend periodic IV therapy sessions spaced apart over time to optimize your results.
