IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a natural way to get total absorption of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids your body needs. When you take tablets or capsules orally, your body actually absorbs only a small fraction of it. In fact, some drugs may actually strip essential nutrients from your body.

Dr. Andrew customizes your IV therapy based on your specific needs. Options include high-dose vitamin C cocktails, Glutathione antioxidant cocktails, Myers' micronutrient cocktails, and more.

Do I need IV therapy?

A tailored IV infusion designed by Dr. Andrew may give you impressive and quick results if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Cold or flu
  • Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression
  • Asthma
  • Angina
  • Injury pain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Peripheral neuropathy

IV therapy is also popular among patients who aren't ill. If you're simply feeling less than your best and need a jump-start for your body, IV therapy can be a great solution.

What happens during my IV therapy session?

During your IV therapy session, Dr. Andrew inserts an ultra-fine needle in your arm. You'll then get to relax for around 30 minutes while the treatment occurs.

IV therapy isn't painful. You may feel some coolness in your arm during treatment, but it's mild and temporary. You may also notice a slight mineral taste in your mouth, but this will go away very quickly.

When will I notice results from IV therapy?

Most patients notice results after 1-2 treatments. After IV therapy, many patients report higher energy levels, an improved feeling of well-being, improved sleep and a feeling of less stress.

If you have IV therapy for a specific problem, such as a vitamin C cocktail for a cold, you'll often have symptom relief the same day. If you have IV therapy for a chronic condition, such as a Myers' cocktail for fibromyalgia, you'll typically see improvement within a few days. And each subsequent treatment may yield even more relief.

Patient Experience From IV Therapy:

When my 7-year-old daughter woke up vomiting one morning, I figured she had eaten something the night before that didn’t agree with her. But for the next four days, she kept throwing up whenever she drank even water. She was lethargic. I finally took her to Dr. Andrew, who recommended a nutritional IV. I was ready to do anything by this point. Dr. Andrew’s assistant slipped the IV right into a tiny vein and you would think my daughter was sitting on the couch watching television. After we got home, I called Dr. Andrew back and asked what he put in that thing! My daughter was be-bopping around the house like nothing was wrong. This was the first time she had gotten off the couch without being carried in four days! The next morning, she started eating little by little and even asked if she could go to school. I couldn’t believe my eyes.
