Though ideally it would always be possible to stay hydrated and get the nutrients you need just by drinking water and following a healthy diet, sometimes you need a boost. The team at Complete Health Medical Center in Waxahachie, Texas, provides IV therapy to help people get the water and nutrients they need to feel their best. To schedule an IV therapy appointment, call the office, or book an appointment online today.
IV therapy involves administering water, nutrients, and minerals through an IV directly into your bloodstream to help you recover from mild to moderate dehydration. When you feel especially depleted, whether you’re jetlagged or recovering from high-endurance physical activity, IV therapy can get you back to feeling like yourself.
IV therapy delivers what your body is missing faster and more efficiently than is possible by just drinking fluids. The IV goes directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive system, so your body can quickly absorb the infusion and begin making use of the nutrients. The team at Complete Health Medical Center can customize the formula in the hydration treatment to fit your needs.
At your first IV therapy appointment, the team will go over your health history. You’ll then discuss your goals for IV therapy, and based on your goals, they will recommend supplements to go into the IV drip along with the hydrating saline fluid.
The baseline goal of IV therapy is to replenish your electrolytes and fluids. However, different formulas can provide pain relief, detoxify your system, boost energy levels, and even improve your complexion.
Treatments normally last 30 minutes to an hour depending on the formula, and you’ll sit in a reclining chair. You can read, listen to music, or just close your eyes while you’re connected to the IV. You’ll likely feel more energized immediately after the treatment.
Yes. IV therapy is a safe and effective way to deliver fluids and nutrients to your body. The IV itself is effectively the same as an IV you’d find in a hospital, and the ingredients in the infusion formulas come from accredited pharmacies and medical suppliers.
Most patients find IV therapy painless. However, as with any intravenous procedure, you may experience slight soreness or bruising at the treatment site.
