IV Therapy - Body R-N-R

Why IV Therapy?

The body is made of 60% water, and all bodily functions rely on water.  Dehydrated bodies do not perform as well. IV solutions bypass the digestive system and more quickly and efficiently enter the blood stream where cells and tissues can more easily extract the nutrients needed. 

IV therapy and BallancerPro treatments are part of the relax and restore process at Body R-N-R. Lymphatic drainage is a huge part of what we do, combined with hydration, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and other compounds to promote health, energy, performance, and boosted immunity.

How fast does IV therapy work?

IV therapy begins to work within minutes with the results lasting 24 hours and longer. The advantage of some intramuscular injections is that the benefits often last longer. However, not all compounds can be given in the muscle. Some can only be given via veins.

What are some disadvanatages of IV therapy?

IV therapy is generally very safe. There can be minor trauma at the insertion site of the IV resulting in bruising or temporary swelling. If you experience any discomfort, let you nurse know. 

On the thumb side of the wrist runs a superficial nerve called the radial nerve. This nerve can be injured when IVs are started in this area. If at all possible, avoid having IVs placed here. 

A condition called phlebitis, or inflammation to the walls of the vein, can happen with stronger IV infusions such as high dose Vitamin C, NAD, and some other nutrients. If you notice any irritation to your vein after your treatment, let your nurse know. A highly effective treatment for this is castor oil compresses and heat to the area. 

Although extremely rare, some people can have allergic reactions to some of the ingredients in the drips. For example, those with sulfa allergies may react to glutathione. High dose vitamin C treatments requires checking a G6PD level, an enzyme deficency in some individuals. 

Vitamin D should only be given when there is a known deficiency. 

A knowledgable provider can help you make informed decisions, and tailor treatments to your needs.
