We are proud to offer IV Therapy as an additional service option for our patients. IV Therapy is an effective and restorative treatment that is completely customizable based on the unique needs of each individual patient.
What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy is a delivery method for fluids and medication. “IV” stands for intravenous, which means it’s administered through the veins. The fluid that contains vitamins and minerals or medication is delivered via an IV drip or injection into the vein, which allows the therapy to move quickly through your bloodstream.
IV therapies are administered by a healthcare professional, for a variety of different reasons, from dehydration to medical emergencies. IV therapy can also help address symptoms related to conditions like the cold, the flu, morning sickness and hangovers.
IV Therapy is available to Morgan Primary Health Care patients and offered at our Boise location by appointment Monday-Friday: 8am-5pm
How IV Therapy Can Help
Are you ready to jumpstart your health, and let go of the toxicity that’s weighing you down? Here’s an amazing new way to get your vitamins, and discover the power. When you’re seriously ill, your digestive system may lack the energy to absorb and transport nutrients. Also, our ability to fully absorb and metabolize nutrients through digestion decreases as we age.
Luckily, Intravenous (IV) therapy can help. IV therapy safely delivers high levels of vitamins and minerals directly into your blood stream through a vein in your arm or hand. One of the main advantages of IV therapy over oral vitamins is that the nutrients bypass the digestive tract, so they’re totally absorbed, providing higher concentrations and remarkable health benefits.
IV therapy can contain minerals, amino acids and popular vitamins like B and C. Combining various vitamins and detoxifying agents has been shown to boost blood flow, help maintain vital organ function, increase cellular energy production, and more. These positive effects can enhance your endurance, make you feel stronger, help your memory, and may reduce symptoms of stress.
IV therapy may help alleviate many symptoms of illness and diseases, including: the common cold, immune system issues, PMS, asthma, diabetes, hepatitis, hypertension, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other prolonged illnesses. High-dose Vitamin C IV therapy is even being used with end-stage cancer patients, to help improve quality of life.
IV therapy can deliver a range of health and wellness benefits, including but not limited to:
- Promoting faster weight loss
- Treating certain nutrient deficiencies
- Cleansing your body of toxins and free radicals
- Increasing your energy levels
- Promoting better cardiovascular health
- Easing anxiety and promoting relaxation
Can Children Receive IV Therapy?
Do you have a child over age 12 who could benefit from an IV drip? If they meet our criteria, we can assist you. We have a range of packages available that can work wonders for young people, such as drips designed to boost immunity and increase energy and focus or to aid with cold and flu symptoms. When your child needs an extra pick-me-up, an IV drip could provide your desired solution.
Young people can benefit from having IV drips just the same as adults. Children often become dehydrated in the summer because they’re running around with friends outside and often forget to sip water or, they may overexert themselves in a sporting event, such as a soccer game or tennis match.
Getting an IV can help treat dehydration much faster than drinking water, as the fluids enter your bloodstream directly. An IV drip can assist an older child who is sick, too.
Getting an IV drip will treat so many symptoms for your teen or preteen. Learn more about our services or reach out to schedule an appointment today.
You cannot receive an if you are younger than 12 years, or
weight at least 100lbs. Many younger children have a fear of needles but
thankfully our staff is here to help through the process.
IV Therapy Side Effects
There are very little side effects to IV therapy, and the benefits far outweigh the risks. There are risks of bruising, infection, vitamin overdoses, and vein inflammation, however, seeking out an experienced professional’s assistance can combat these risks.
IV treatment can be helpful in scenarios where oral nutrients aren’t functioning. Occasionally a specific nutrient isn’t adequately absorbed orally as a result of poor operation from the digestive tract. In such scenarios, pros and cons of intravenous treatment can provide the necessary nutrients directly into the cells quickly and efficiently than tablets.
