What You Can Expect During Your First IV Therapy Session
Do you live a hectic lifestyle? Are you recovering from an injury, a stressful event, or a disease? Find out how you can give your body a much-needed boost with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Did you know that the body absorbs just a small percentage of vitamins and minerals taken in pill form? Also, the supplement industry is less regulated than the food industry, which leaves room for fillers that can cause issues for those with allergies or intolerances. 

A hectic lifestyle, stress, disease, and poor nutrition can easily take a toll on your body. If you’re looking for a quick fix to boost your mental performance, energy levels, and general wellness, IV therapy could help. 

Our specialists at iCare Health Services in Laurel, Maryland, offer IV therapy. This is a type of therapy that delivers much-needed vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to your bloodstream, which increases the absorption rate up to 90%. Read on to find out what you can expect from IV therapy. 

What happens during an office visit for an IV therapy session?

Everybody’s needs are different. Upon looking at your medical records and asking you a few questions about past deficiencies and current symptoms, our specialist prepares a personalized cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. 

All you have to do is lie comfortably while our experts set up the IV. The session takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. 

What issues can be addressed with IV therapy?

Deficiencies impact a large number of processes in the body. As a consequence, there are many uses for IV therapy, including the following:

  • Recovering from hangovers 
  • Recovering from strenuous and prolonged exercise such as running a marathon
  • Recovering after aggressive treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy
  • Recovering from poor sleep and chronic stress 
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing brain fog and mental tiredness 
  • Improving mood 
  • Boosting the immune system 
  • Reducing oxidative stress in the body

IV therapy can also be used for patients who’ve been on restrictive diets for prolonged periods, patients who take medications that interfere with nutrient absorption, and patients who can’t absorb nutrients properly due to gut issues.

The results from IV therapy are almost instantaneous, as the minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants go straight into the bloodstream. 

Our experts also have an in-house lab for testing, so you’ll receive a personalized treatment. This way, you won’t end up having too many vitamins and minerals of one kind. 

If you’re feeling tired or stressed out, or if you’re simply feeling the need for a boost, call us or to schedule an appointment online and find out if you’re a good candidate for IV therapy.
