IV therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous, or IV therapy, is a functional medicine treatment that delivers vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly into your bloodstream. These ingredients bypass your digestive system entirely, ensuring effective uptake from your cells. As a result, your body achieves 100% absorption. This helps your body achieve serum concentrations not available from oral vitamins and supplements. 

Are there different types of IV therapy?

Dr. Ramsey and the team at Revitalize Functional Medicine offer an array of IV therapy treatments. Some work to promote balance and nutrition, while others encourage weight loss and detox. The team also offers IV therapy for athletes and other active individuals. These ease inflammation and promote recovery. 

Depending on your individual needs, the team might recommend:

  • Myers’ cocktail
  • Rehydration therapy
  • High C
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Restorative cocktail
  • Chelation and cardiac chelation
  • Cellular detox
  • Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)
  • Anti-inflammatory cocktail
  • Ozone cocktail

The team also offers an IV treatment designed to encourage tissue and wound healing.

What are some common medical problems that benefit from IV therapy?

IV therapy is incredibly versatile. Dr. Ramsey and the team regularly prescribe IV therapy to ease uncomfortable symptoms associated with:

  • Bronchitis
  • Sinusitis
  • The flu
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD)
  • Liver and gallbladder problems
  • Heavy metal toxicity
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes

You might also benefit from IV therapy if you regularly suffer from chronic or acute pain caused by inflammation. 

Am I a good candidate for IV therapy?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for IV therapy, make an appointment at Revitalize Functional Medicine. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and a discussion of your symptoms and goals for treatment, your provider can develop a custom IV therapy plan that aligns with your individual needs.

How long does IV therapy take?

The length of IV therapy treatment depends on the type of cocktail you receive and the underlying problem you’re trying to address. Most people finish treatment in 1-2 hours, but your doctor might recommend a series of infusions to achieve the best possible results.
