IV Therapy

Have you been thinking about IV therapy?

Maybe you’ve heard of it but don’t know if it’s right for you.

For decades, IV therapy has been used in hospitals as an effective method to treat conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. It has also been used by those seeking supplemental boosts to improve their nutrition, athleticism, energy, beauty or immunity. With all of these benefits, it is important to know if this therapy is right for you. Here are some things to consider when making your decision.

1. Understand the Risks

Although IV therapy has had beneficial results for thousands of people around the world, it is not safe for everyone.  Here are some conditions to be aware of that can potentially cause complications for patients.

Congestive Heart Failure:

Excess fluids in the bloodstream can strain a system that is already having difficulty processing fluids. If you suffer from this condition be sure to talk to your doctor about the IV therapy you are interested in.

Existing Medication:

Be sure to talk to a professional about the existing medications you are taking to ensure there are no conflicts with your IV therapy.

Questionable Clinics:

An IV needle that hasn’t been properly placed can lead to complications including infiltration (fluid seeping into tissue), hematoma (blood getting into tissue) and air embolism (air bubbles forming in veins, potentially deadly). To avoid these issues be sure that the clinic you are choosing is reputable. Check their reviews on 3rd party sites like Google Reviews.

2. Choose the Right Clinic

Not all clinics are made the same. When you are dealing with your health, don’t take shortcuts, and don’t settle. Take the time to find a clinic that specializes in the treatments you are interested in and that has a solid ongoing reputation. Check the credentials of those you are relying on to deliver results. If it is hard to find any information about a particular clinic then move on. The best clinics have reviews and a reputation that they are proud to share with the world.

3. Know What to Expect

Remember that most conditions we seek to relieve don’t manifest overnight. Typically they take months or years to develop. With this in mind, it is important to give the treatment time as well. Although the right therapy can feel like a miracle, it is important to give any healing program you choose the time to work.
