IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV nutrition therapy is an alternative way of delivering vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to your body that doesn’t involve ingestion. While you get many nutrients through the food you eat, and even more through dietary supplements, these methods don’t result in full absorption due to their route through the digestive tract. 

During IV therapy, the nutrients go directly into your blood through an intravenous drip. That is especially useful after your body goes through some sort of stress, which can offset balance among the nutrients in your system and lead to unfavorable symptoms and feelings of unwellness. 

What can IV therapy alleviate?

If you’re interested in giving IV therapy a try, Dr. Gael can go over its benefits with you. Even if you don’t have a specific ailment, Dr. Gael can create a formula of nutrients to boost your energy or benefit your general wellness.

With the right combination of nutrients, IV therapy at The Gael Center can provide relief for:

  • Jet lag
  • Hangovers
  • Dehydration
  • Inflammation
  • Fatigue
  • Some forms of chronic pain
  • Headaches
  • Malabsorption
  • Low mood
  • Athletic recovery

Additionally, IV therapy can help with anti-aging purposes like improving the health of your skin and hair. Dr. Gael helps you explore all of the potential benefits of IV therapy during your brief consultation before the treatment. 

How long does an IV therapy session take?

Your IV therapy infusion can take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour in total. During this time, you may sit in a comfortable reclining seat and relax, play music, or read. Dr. Gael monitors you throughout your infusion to ensure everything is going well. 

How often can I get IV therapy?

You can get IV therapy at The Gael Center as much or as little as you please. For optimal, ongoing benefits, Dr. Gael might recommend coming in once every two weeks or so for an infusion. Regular infusions like these can help reset your nutrition after an imbalance. 

Regular visits for IV therapy can also help boost your metabolism, improve your energy, and result in other long-term benefits for your overall wellness. You can customize your infusions to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need most at the time of your appointment. 

Nutrient imbalances and dehydration are responsible for low immunity, low energy, and even some physical pains. To restore your nutrients with customizable IV therapy, call The Gael Center, or schedule your visit online today.
