What You Can Expect During Your First IV Infusion Therapy Session

IV therapy

If you struggle to follow a balanced diet on a day-to-day basis, you’re not alone. However, even if you try to round it out with a daily multivitamin, you may not be getting the nutrients needed for optimal health and wellness. That’s where IV infusion therapy comes in.

Dr. Linda Y. Dula at Invigorate Asheville PA in North Carolina offers IV therapy to keep your body in peak condition. Whether you want to bolster your health, manage a chronic disease, enhance athletic performance, or help with a pesky hangover, here’s what you can expect from IV therapy.

Oral vitamins versus IV therapy

It’s tempting to try supplementing your body with convenient, over-the-counter vitamins. However, when you take pills orally, your body has to digest them so you can absorb the nutrients they contain. That means that by the time they travel through your entire digestive system, your supplements lose their potency. The result? You only receive a portion of the nutrients they once contained.

IV therapy delivers liquid vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, or other nutrients directly into your bloodstream through an infusion or injection. Since they bypass your digestive system, the nutrients immediately get absorbed by the cells that need them most.

Plus, IV therapy treatments get personalized to your individual needs, ensuring you only receive the nutrients you need for maximum health and wellness. 

Types of IV therapy

Dr. Dula offers a wide range of infusion therapy formulas to help improve every aspect of your health, even weight loss.

During your first visit, Dr. Dula discusses your medical health, any current symptoms, and overall goals. Based on your initial consultation, she could recommend a variety of infusions, such as:

Dr. Dula also offers FastVitaminIV®. This optional add-on for NAD+ infusion therapy contains a powerful blend of 19 essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, which offers additional mind and body benefits.

What to expect during your IV therapy treatment

After working with Dr. Dula to select the optimal IV infusion, you sit back and relax comfortably to receive your treatment. Since IV therapy involves an injection or IV, you may feel a small prick from a needle, but any discomfort should pass quickly.

Once your IV is in place, you can read, watch a video, play on your phone, or even take a quick nap. Most infusions take less than an hour, and they don’t involve any downtime. Dr. Dula also offers mobile IV therapy, so you can let the healing powers of your infusion come to you. 

In most cases, Dr. Dula recommends receiving regular vitamin infusions to maintain your results.
