Each person and protocol varies, but as a general guide, the infusion can last anywhere from 1-2 hours.
It’s a quick injection of nutrients that are delivered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This means you’ll get the full benefit of the nutrients rather than having them filtered out by your body. Additionally, the shot is non-invasive and relatively painless.
First, a nurse places an IV line into your vein, which is connected to a liter of a custom-tailored drip. The bag is then hung above you on an IV pole, and gravity works to deliver fluid to your veins over the next 1-2 hours.
Physiologically we have a digestive system that processes everything that goes into our stomach. When taking vitamins by mouth, our stomach breaks them down and sends them into our small intestines, where the vitamins are processed.
When the vitamins are ready for delivery, our cells tell the digestive system that they have enough vitamins and don’t need them anymore through a negative feedback mechanism. The small intestine then takes those excess vitamins and sends them to the kidneys and large intestines to process them as waste.
When the vitamins are given intravenously, they are directly introduced to our bloodstream, where our cells get nourished through diffusion. The cells don’t have a choice at this time. They must accept whatever is given to them, leading to rapid rises in blood concentrations of the vitamins.
Once that happens, the cells absorb them and use them for defense, collagen buildup, and boosting your overall health. The cells are not connected to the digestive tract, so they can’t send the excess vitamins out as waste and must use up the vitamins that are introduced to them.
Typically, no significant negative side effects are reported during or after IV treatment.
Before your drip, you provide your allergies and medical history to prevent any potential adverse effects. It is normal to experience a cooling sensation during treatment (don’t worry, we will provide a heated blanket). For some, light bruising may occur at the administration site after treatment
IV treatment administration is virtually painless. At most, it is possible that patients feel a slight pinch during the IV line placement. Our nurses are licensed medical professionals with extensive IV administration experience, ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the entire experience.
Once the IV is inserted, the tape holds the IV line in place, and a needle no longer remains in your vein. You can move your arm and hand — just refrain from bending it or performing strenuous gestures. You are free to walk around, and you can easily perform normal activities, like typing, brushing your hair, and eating. We provide hand or foot masks to make the experience more comfortable and luxurious.
It would be best if you tailored your IV treatment frequency to your body’s demand, which varies from person to person. Our team of Registered Nurses will assist you in making a treatment plan that aligns with your wellness goals.
