What is IV Therapy?

IV Therapy

Here at Solstice Health, we offer IV Nutritional Therapy as part of our commitment to wellness. IV Nutritional Therapy is a type of direct infusion therapy that strengthens the immune system, improves energy levels and sense of well-being. With IV Nutritional Therapy, 100% of nutrients are available and absorbed immediately. This compares with a 50% absorption rate of traditional oral vitamins and an 8-hour lag time.

What symptoms does IV Nutritional Therapy treat?

IV Nutritional Therapy has been used to treat general fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Fibromyalgia, acute asthma attacks as well as chronic asthma, upper respiratory and viral infections, acute and chronic sinusitis, allergies, migraines, muscle spasms, menstrual cramps, and so much more including use to support recovery from high performance athletics. Even many healthy patients choose to receive occasional infusions as it enhances their overall well-being. Those with underlying illnesses may require a series of treatments to correct the deficits. As they get progressively better, some may no longer require therapy. Others may need regular infusions to better control and counteract their medical conditions if they are too advanced to be reversible. IV Nutritional Therapy is effective and beneficial for everyone.

What are some of the benefits of IV Nutritional Therapy?

  • Boosts the immune system.Our IV (intravenous) program uses a concentrated blend of key vitamins and minerals that boost the body’s immune system in a way that orally administered vitamins and intramuscular vitamin injections simply cannot match. In fact, the ultra-high blood concentrations of IV vitamin C that we can provide can be just as effective as prescription medications for treating influenza and other viruses. Our unique blend of various B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium have a significant effect on a variety of conditions from asthma to angina and promote whole-body health.
  • Corrects cellular deficits.For some patients, certain disease states can reduce the ability of orally administered nutrients to penetrate cell walls, which in turn reduces their effectiveness. When nutrients are delivered via direct IV vitamin therapy, however, they are better able to penetrate cells, making them more effective in boosting the immune system, healing damaged tissue and reducing tissue and system inflammation.
  • Administered By Medical Professional. All our IV vitamin therapy treatments are administered by a Registered Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or Physician at Solstice Health.

What is the process of IV Nutritional Therapy?

We make this process fast and simple for you. After filling out a short evaluation, you proceed to our exclusive and comfortable IV Therapy room where you can put your feet up, read a book, or simply enjoy the view. Our providers utilize local anesthesia prior to placing your IV, making the painful part when we take the tape off. Once your IV is in place, the infusion takes between 10-15 minutes and during that time the only thing you need to do is RELAX. When completed, we will remove your IV and place a band-aid and that’s it! Some patients note an immediate energetic response and others feel the effects within the first 24 hours. Either way, your immune system is strengthened and the benefits are yours!
