IV Therapy Q & A

What are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy?

Receiving vitamins and other nutrients through an IV delivers them directly to your bloodstream so your body can put them to work. They bypass the gastrointestinal tract, so they won’t cause any gastrointestinal problems sometimes associated with taking high doses of vitamins orally. An IV delivery also allows the vitamins to bypass the liver, which can alter many nutrients during metabolism.

What conditions does IV vitamin therapy treat?

IV vitamin therapy may be used to address a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Malabsorption syndromes
  • Migraines
  • Muscle spasms
  • Allergies

If you experience chronic stress, ask Dr. Cho about the IV Executive Stress Formula. Those with a poorly-performing immune system, chronic fatigue syndrome, or Candida may benefit from the SuperImmune Boost Formula.

Healthy men and women benefit from IV vitamin therapy, too, as a preventive treatment to ward off disease and infection.

Why is IV therapy superior to oral vitamins?

Only a fraction of orally-consumed vitamins is absorbed. Taking a higher dosage of oral vitamins to increase absorption doesn’t work because your small intestine can only absorb a certain amount of each vitamin at a time.

High oral doses can leave your stomach irritated and sensitive. But with IV vitamin therapy, you get the entire dosage of vitamins and nutrients to benefit your wellbeing, without stomach discomfort.

What happens during an IV therapy session?

Dr. Cho consults with you prior to receiving IV vitamin therapy to assess what combination of nutrients she thinks will be most beneficial. You receive the nutrients through an IV inserted directly into your veins. The infusion lasts between 20 and 90 minutes, depending on the combination of nutrients needed.

You can relax in the treatment room and listen to music during the infusion, and you can resume your normal daily activities immediately after receiving the IV.

What is high-dose vitamin C therapy?

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps prevent oxidative stress. Nobel Prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling studied high-dose vitamin C as a treatment for a variety of illnesses. Intravenous vitamin C results in much higher blood levels of the vitamin than high-dose oral therapy.

You benefit from high-dose vitamin C in cases of:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Cold or flu
  • Weakened immunity
  • Depression

High-dose vitamin C also helps with wound healing, assists in detoxification, and acts as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory.
