What does IV nutrient therapy do?

Sometimes called drip IV therapy or IV infusion therapy, nutrient IV therapy is a minimally invasive, convenient solution for addressing a number of concerns and boosting certain systems and processes in the body. Some of the results you can expect with IV drip therapy, which will vary based on your initial symptoms and the type of nutrients delivered, may include:

  • Higher energy levels
  • Increased brain function (focus, clarity, and concentration)
  • Quicker recovery after exercise
  • Enhanced athletic performance
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Better hydration
  • Reduced headaches, muscle aches, and fatigue
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Relief from hangover

How often can you get a drip IV?

Nutrient IV therapy is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for otherwise healthy patients and can be given quite often to maintain consistent energy levels and relief from other symptoms. For an optimal outcome, including the most consistent results possible, patients typically schedule their IV nutrient treatments every 1 – 2 weeks. During your initial consultation for IV drip therapy in San Francisco, Dr. A. will recommend an appropriate frequency for your treatments to begin. Based on your response to treatment and other individual factors, our team will work to adjust your treatment schedule as needed over time.

How soon will I feel better after IV drip therapy?

Many patients report feeling better almost instantly after their IV treatment is complete, which typically takes about 45 minutes. This is because the vitamins and minerals are delivered directly into the bloodstream, where they can be dispersed throughout the body much faster than with oral medications or intramuscular injections. The rate of relief may vary based on the nature and intensity of the patient’s initial symptoms. For common, mild complaints like a hangover, relief should be fairly rapid.

Which IV drip treatment should I get?

Most IV drip therapies begin with a Myers cocktail, which contains a combination of vitamins B and C, magnesium, calcium, and more. This provides relief from inflammation and fatigue while offering a general boost to the patient’s overall energy levels and wellness. Based on the specific concerns or complaints that brought the patient to our facility, our knowledgeable team will recommend a customized IV drip that can provide targeted relief and results.
