IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a supplement, not a treatment. It’s a way of getting the nutrients your body needs in high amounts, much like taking supplement pills or capsules you can get at your local drugstore or grocery store. 

A key difference between taking supplements orally and getting your nutrients through IV therapy is the rate of absorption. When you take supplements by mouth, the nutrients must pass through your digestive system. When this happens, some of them get lost along the digestive tract, so you don’t absorb 100% of them. 

With IV therapy, the nutrients go straight into your bloodstream for a nearly 100% absorption rate. Shortly after your experience in the office, you may feel a bit better than you did before you came in. Dr. Iskander helps you select the right nutrients for your formula, depending on your needs at the time of your visit. 

When should I consider IV therapy?

A high amount of one or more specific nutrients delivered to your system via IV therapy has the potential to ease several symptoms and common mild ailments. While IV therapy isn’t a miracle cure for anything, the process might make you feel better if you’re experiencing:

  • Fatigue
  • Dehydration
  • Stress
  • Headaches
  • A hangover
  • Jet lag
  • Slow athletic recovery

The intention of IV therapy is not to treat any medical ailment, and it isn’t a substitute for getting the medications or treatments you need when you’re sick. 

IV therapy can be a good remedy for certain nutrient deficiencies. If you don’t have enough of a specific vitamin or mineral in your system, the effects can be widespread. For example, a vitamin B12 deficiency can cause symptoms like weakness or mental fogginess. IV therapy may be able to help you restore the balance and alleviate those symptoms. 

Which nutrients can I get in my IV bag?

There is a vast range of nutrients you can use for IV hydration, including vitamins and other micronutrients like minerals and antioxidants. Dr. Iskander formulates a hydration solution with saline as the base and a number of other nutrients that can benefit your body. A few possibilities at Jonaleé Pain and Aesthetics are:

  • Vitamin B complex
  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Glutathione

Together, nutrients like these help with cellular functioning and hydration. Each IV therapy session takes just 45 minutes to one hour of your day, and you can sit back comfortably and relax with a book or some music throughout the process.
