IV Therapy is a treatment that delivers vitamins, minerals and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream. It is often used to treat symptoms of dehydration, illness or just to make you feel better.
A healthcare 417 INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE places a thin, flexible tube called a cannula into a vein in your arm or hand. They sanitize the area with a wipe before inserting a needle and applying a small amount of pressure.
Once the cannula is in place, it’s hooked up to tubing that connects to a drip bag full of fluid. A drip bag contains water, saline or a solution called lactated ringer’s that includes ingredients like sodium chloride, potassium chloride and calcium chloride.
When you receive an IV, your body is treated with nutrients that help the organs function properly, including magnesium, calcium and vitamin C. They also help reduce inflammation and prevent damage.
Hydration through IV therapies is an excellent way to quickly replace lost fluids. These nutrients can also help relieve pain, nausea and other unpleasant symptoms.
There are many different types of medications that can be administered through an intravenous line, and each one may have a specific set of benefits or side effects. Some examples include antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesics. Some also contain vitamins and minerals to strengthen your immune system and prevent damage. These treatments are most effective when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
