Infusion Center Q & A

What is IV nutrition therapy?

IV nutrition therapy is a wellness treatment that delivers a customized blend of micronutrients directly into your bloodstream. That allows your cells to make use of these nutrients right away, without waiting for your digestive system to break down a supplement and release the nutrients into your bloodstream.


This method of delivery can enhance many aspects of health and wellness. Some of the benefits include:

  • Enhanced workout recovery
  • Immune system boost
  • Hangover recovery
  • Cognitive support
  • Mood enhancement
  • Weight loss support

Because so many Americans live in a constant state of mild dehydration, IV nutrition therapy also delivers an immediate hydration boost, which leaves you feeling refreshed and renewed. 

 

What kinds of medical treatments are delivered via the infusion center?

IV infusion can also be used to deliver medications to your bloodstream. At DOCCS, IV infusions are sometimes recommended by Dr. Sahay as a means of delivering a powerful dose of antibiotics.

When you experience a serious infection, getting the right dose of antibiotics into your system is a top priority. Not only do IV infusions deliver liquid antibiotics effectively, they also help avoid the digestive distress many people experience during oral antibiotic therapy. 

IV infusion antibiotics also give your provider certainty that you are receiving the recommended dose. Many people fail to complete their entire oral antibiotic prescription, which can leave you at risk of a serious reinfection.

 

Is IV infusion therapy painful?

IV infusion is performed by inserting a small needle into a vein, usually on your wrist or hand. Once in place, the needle is withdrawn and the tubing is secured in place with a small piece of surgical tape. This entire process takes little time and is not painful. You might feel a sting as the needle enters your skin, but there is no significant discomfort.


If you feel squeamish at the thought of needles, you can always listen to music or close your eyes during this brief process. Many people are surprised to learn their IV has already been placed before they even realize the process has begun.

If you have additional questions or concerns about the role of IV infusion therapy in preventive medicine, call the office to book a visit or spend a few moments on the online booking page to find a time that fits your busy schedule.
