Vitamins and nutrients are an essential part of sustaining good physical and mental health. Maintaining the proper level of these nutrients is vital to our bodies, but it can be hard to manage them on your own. Taking oral supplements can help us maintain the levels we need in our bodies in order for them to optimally function. However, in the inherent busyness of day-to-day life, it can be challenging to remember to take them. In addition to this, oral supplements are not fully absorbed by the body, with as much as half of the vitamins passing through the body as waste.
How often should you get IV therapy?
Depending on the health goals of each patient, there are many things to consider when developing a treatment plan. Because health goals are unique to each person, how often one should undergo IV therapy will vary from patient to patient. When first beginning treatment, it may be recommended to schedule weekly infusion sessions. Those living with a chronic health condition that affects their immune system may decide to maintain this schedule.
Generally, most people will benefit from treatments every two weeks once their nutrient levels become stabilized. This is due to the fact that nutrient levels remain elevated for between two to three weeks after each treatment. After they have achieved their desired results, some patients may choose to schedule infusion therapy sessions once a month. Alternatively, others might only seek treatment when they experience symptoms. It is difficult to put a general schedule on sessions because each treatment plan is customized for each individual. Talk to the IV therapy specialist at TRUE Health Medical about what is the best frequency of treatments to achieve and maintain the results you desire.

How does IV therapy work?
IV therapy works by instantly hydrating the body and delivering vitamins and nutrients at a much more effective absorption rate. Consuming vitamins orally only absorbs up to 50% of the vitamin’s contents, while an IV delivery system absorbs over 90% of nutrients. Patients are able to absorb much more of the actual nutrients in a more timely and efficient manner by bypassing the digestive system and injecting the vitamins directly into the bloodstream.
How long does IV therapy last?
Everybody is different, so individual results may vary. The levels of nutrients in the body are typically elevated for two weeks. An individual’s level of hydration, unique physical makeup and pre-existing conditions all factor into how they will feel after their treatment. IV therapy is a safe and efficacious way to restore and maintain well-being.
