Are you interested in IV drip therapy but have questions you want answered? You are not alone. At NexGen Health, we are happy to answer any questions you have about this effective form of wellness therapy that can help you improve your health from a cellular level. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions about IV therapy that we often hear at our clinic in San Jose.
Intravenous (IV) drip therapy delivers water and nutrients directly to your bloodstream for quicker hydration and absorption. Like patients receiving nutrients or medications in the hospital or ER, IV therapy bypasses the digestive system for faster administration. However, this therapy is designed to improve health as an elective treatment.
Most of our IV drips take about 45-60 minutes to administer from start to finish. Patients may need to fill out intake forms and review treatment information before their IV drip therapy, but the entire process is usually completed in less than an hour. (The NAD Therapy takes two hours)
Our IV drip treatments are performed by medical professionals and are sourced from an FDA registered facility. Most of the nutrients are the same as what you ingest in food or supplements; they are just delivered differently and more effectively to the bloodstream. Side effects or negative reactions to the substances in the IV infusion therapy are almost non-existent. Slight bruising, itching or swelling on the skin from the IV is possible, like any needle injection, but these effects are mild and quickly dissipate. The treatment is not painful, just a slight prick to the skin as the needle is inserted.
Many patients receive IV drip therapy two or more times per month. The exact number of treatments and frequency depends on the individual. We offer nutrient testing to identify deficiencies, and a treatment plan is devised based on your specific needs.
