About IVs

All IV’s will take approximately 45min – 1 hour to administer

 

What’s in the IV’s?

The IV’s have ingredients found naturally in the body or in the foods we eat every day. No medications.

How long do the effects of the IV last?

Effects can last up to 3-5 days, based on individual lifestyle. Effects can also be extended through the oral use of supplements.

Are these IV’s safe?

Safe enough to get every day if no risk factors are present. There is always the risk of infection because of the needle stick as stated on the consent form

Why not just take vitamins and supplements?

When given through an IV drip, nutrients are more available to the body. Simply taking supplements involves passing through the digestive system where the absorption is not as efficient.

Does it hurt?

IVs shouldn’t hurt at all after the initial pinch. Once the needle is used to access the vein it is discarded. The IV catheter is a small plastic tube left in the vein for IV fluids to travel through.

Do I need to complete the questionnaire prior to getting an IV?

Yes. The health history is reviewed by a medical professional and an order is written for the nurse to administer IV fluids. Complete the questionnaire online to avoid a wait at the center.

How do I know which IV I should get?

Review of the health history questionnaire results in a provider order for all IVs with any exceptions noted. The RN follows the order and the client chooses the IV that best fits their lifestyle, energy level, and wellbeing. It is perfectly fine to get iEnergize at the beginning of a busy week and the next week get iRelax or iRevitalize.

Can I get an evening or week-end appointment?

We encourage anyone to e-mail or call us to check for a more convenient day/time to schedule an IV. The Southside location has IV hours until 7pm on Tuesdays and we are happy to add more days and hours based on feedback.
