Frequently Asked Questions
What is nutrient OR vitamin IV therapy? If you're like most people, you probably don't consume your daily dose of vitamins and minerals, let alone experience their valuable benefits. Nutrient IV Therapy is a safe and effective way to receive natural vitamins, minerals, and amino acids direct to the bloodstream. The 30 to 45-minute session enhances your energy, improves your overall mood, and helps prevent future health conditions caused by stress, malnutrition, and dehydration.
Are there any side effects during the IV process? No major side effects are usually seen; however, people do experience some cooling of the arm and a mineral taste in the mouth. Do not worry, as this is all normal.
How long does a session take? Our nutrient IV’s take approximately 30-45 minutes for the drip to be fully administered.
What are nutrient IV’s made of? Nutrient IVs are similar to IV’s you would find at your local hospital. They all consist of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, which are found in the body naturally. Adding these nutrients gives the body more of what your organs need to function properly.
Why IV’s? IV therapy provides direct nutrient support to the body with significantly higher bioavailability than with oral supplements, meaning your body is able to absorb more of the nutrients you need. Maximum benefits are achieved because the supplementation is absorbed directly into the bloodstream instead of going through a more inefficient digestive process. We utilize the best available compounded nutrients, peptides and therapeutics, ensuring they are always the most “active” form available to the body so that you receive the maximum benefit.
Most IV nutritional therapies impact a variety of positive results: cellular hydration, improved energy, reduced inflammation, less pain and other positive outcomes.
Our MediPro doctors have specifically chosen and formulated IV combinations to provide the best results for a variety of conditions. As compared to many other facilities that promote IV’s, we have combined cutting edge therapies and strategies unavailable at typical clinics.
Some of our offerings include:
These IV’s can be combined with injections for pain, nausea and detoxification as well as specialized oral supplements and peptides to maximize the benefit. At MediPro Holistic Health, we believe in treating the entire person and ensuring our treatment recommendations are individualized, thorough and complete.
How soon should I feel the effects? Depending on your nutritional and hydration status you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. People who get IV’s regularly will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance.
Is this process painful? Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. While some people find needles to be relatively painless, others will find it a bit painful. For these patients, we have ways of making the process more comfortable. However, this procedure is in no way excruciating. We use a smaller needle than what is used in children's hospitals.
What if I feel unwell after my IV? Although not a typical response, it is not uncommon to experience short lived symptoms such as fatigue, aches or feeling sick. This occurs for three primary reasons: The overall shift in cell hydration as things move in and out; immune activation or shift as the body attempts to balance or is now addressing chronic issues; and various pathway activations in the body. Generally speaking, the more nutrient deficient or chronically ill a person is, the more transient symptoms occur as the body moves towards its baseline normal physiology.
Who should or shouldn't do this? If you retain fluids, have kidney problems, or suffer from certain health conditions, you should not engage in nutrient IV Therapy. We always recommend that you check with your primary care physician if you’re unsure. However, anyone with a healthy history can safely obtain its benefits.
Is there any potential reaction to receiving a nutrient IV while on other medications? Negative reactions are slim to none, since this procedure is proven to be advantageous and safe. Either way, everyone is monitored and if some discomfort begins, we will simply monitor you over time and stop if necessary. Most people respond favorably to the therapy, feeling energized and alert from the beginning.
Is it an expensive treatment? IV Therapy is a premium service that improves your body’s performance enormously. It is an investment, so if you compare the price against the benefits you receive from it, you’ll find it’s worth it.
Users agree that preventative medicine such as nutrient IV Therapy strengthens their immune system, helping them avoid expensive doctor visits and prescription medication that come from something like a severe cold or allergy.
What should I do after the treatment is done? After your session, you can go about your day as you would normally. There are no restrictions. We recommend that you exercise, meditate, eat healthy meals, stay hydrated, and get enough rest daily.
