IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous therapy (IV therapy) helps supply your body with an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals to promote the proper functioning of your cells. Although a healthy diet may furnish your body with a sufficient quantity of vitamins and minerals, a variety of metabolic disorders may prevent absorption of these essential nutrients.

As a result, your weakened and damaged cells need supplemental nutrition to heal and remain healthy. IV therapy quickly supplies the right mix of vitamins and minerals your body requires.  

How does IV therapy work?

Dr. Saxena injects a combination of nutrients directly into your veins, allowing for easy absorption into your cells. IV therapy typically includes a mix of vitamins and other supplements, including:

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Selenium
  • Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12
  • Vitamin C
  • Folic acid

Glutathione and biotin are also usually part of IV therapy.

Which conditions does IV therapy treat?

IV therapy may be used to treat a broad range of medical conditions, including chronic health problems. IV therapy commonly helps with:

  • Acute strain or injury
  • Acute viral illness
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Aging
  • Asthma
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hepatitis
  • Herpes outbreaks
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Malnutrition
  • Migraines
  • Muscle spasms
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Upper respiratory infection

IV therapy may also help draw heavy metals from your body in what’s known as chelation therapy.

What is chelation therapy?

Chelation therapy is a safe, effective method to draw toxins and metabolic waste from your bloodstream. The treatment works by creating a molecular reaction to remove unnecessary metals from your body.

Chelation therapy uses a combination of synthetic amino acid, saline, and a mixture of vitamins and minerals. The solution is slowly infused, and therapy generally takes 30 minutes. Within 24 hours, the metals are carried out of your body naturally through your urine.

What are the benefits of chelation therapy?

Chelation therapy may reduce inflammation and may provide multiple benefits. The treatment may help to:

  • Increase the blood flow
  • Remove arterial plaque
  • Restore memory

Chelation therapy also may relieve discomfort due to lupus, arthritis, or scleroderma.

Depending on your condition, you may benefit from other IV therapies, such as a Myer’s cocktail or hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) therapy. Dr. Saxena talks with you about the advantages of different IV therapies, which are offered in the convenience of Aveda Integrative Medical Center’s office.
