IV Therapy Q & A

IV Therapy

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is an intravenous method of absorbing natural substances. You can take vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in supplement form, but you absorb only 5-25% of oral supplements. Unfortunately, most of the supplement that is processed is lost during digestion. 

Through OWM's IV therapy you receive 100% of those nutrients because you bypass digestion. Custom development of the IV bags eliminates degradation which takes place over time or through the freezing process. This ensures the rapid delivery of the supplement benefits and gives you a much larger dose than oral supplements can provide. 

When might I need IV therapy?

IV therapy is an important part of many treatment plans at OWM Integrative Wellness. Some of the many reasons that patients might need IV therapy include:

  • Aging skin
  • Athletic recovery
  • Autoimmune illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
  • Post-viral and post-infection syndromes like Lyme disease
  • Mitochondrial disease
  • Cognitive impairment disorders
  • Mood disorders like depression and anxiety
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Central neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis
  • Chronic pain, like joint pain or back pain 
  • Mold toxicity
  • Heavy metal toxicity 

IV therapy can also be used as preparation for other treatments. During your consultation, the team will go over any additional details with you and work with you to develop a protocol tailored to your specific needs.

What happens during IV therapy?

During IV therapy, the OWM Integrative Wellness team inserts a very thin catheter (tube) in an arm vein and tapes it in place. The infusion then enters your blood over the next 30-60 minutes while you relax. Many patients feel better right away.
