IV Therapy FAQs

Maybe you heard about the treatment from social media, or from the news, or even from an online search, and now are curious about how it all works. IV therapy can offer a lot of benefits for a broad range of circumstances, from people who are sick to those who just need a boost, and many of these benefits can be felt almost immediately after the short session. Some of your questions about IV therapy should hopefully be answered below, but to learn more you can contact Dr. Anthony Wright and Dr. Gloria Wright of Total Health Primary Care in Selma, TX.

What Makes It So Effective?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a way for your doctor to safely introduce vitamins and minerals into your body in a larger and more complete way than would be possible if these were taken orally. This bypasses your body's gastrointestinal tract and delivers the vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream for a near-instant effect.

Who Can Benefit From IV Therapy?

For a long time, IV therapy was primarily used as a treatment for dehydration, either due to intensive exercise or a result of a night of heavy drinking. It has also been proven helpful for those who are sick and recovering, often from the flu. Some also use it as a boost of energy, to help with migraines and general pain and fatigue, but you should speak with your doctor and discuss your treatment expectations.

What to Expect During the Treatment?

The process takes about an hour, often less, and begins with your doctor connecting the IV bag to a vein using a small tube.

Prior to treatment, your doctor will go over your health history to determine the best combination of vitamins and minerals for your individual needs.

During the administration of these fluids, you can simply sit and relax.
