Injection and IV Frequently Asked Questions

What is IV therapy?

IV Nutritional Therapy is often used for its wide range of benefits, which can include:

  • Increased energy
  • Enhanced immunity
  • Improved mental focus
  • Longevity and Anti-aging
  • Improved gut health
  • Improved sleep quality
  • and more...

IV treatments are administered directly into your veins, giving you faster results. The powerful results occur due to the concentration of the nutrients used plus the fact that it bypasses the digestive tract. 

IV Therapy has been used for decades. It provides a very safe and effective option for a variety of health issues. 

These are personalized treatments, customized and designed to address your unique healthcare needs.

IV Therapy benefits a variety of individuals, from those who are fatigued, trying to heal from chronic illness including gut issues, suffering nutrient deficiencies, or weakened immune system issues, plus those desiring the benefits of anti-aging and improved fitness performance.  

If you suffer from a deficiency of a particular vitamin or mineral, IV vitamin therapy can be of enormous benefit. 

What are the most common complications of IV therapy?

A person suffering with particular pre-existing illnesses may not benefit from IV nutrient therapy. For instance, if someone has a heart condition, that person is at a higher risk for an overload of fluids as a result of the treatment.

IV nutrient therapy has risks just like any medical treatment you might be considering. The best thing to do is consult with your doctor or a healthcare professional about your medical history and see if IV nutrient therapy is right for you.

Is IV Therapy Safe?

This is an important question. Let’s review the benefits, risks, and who is the ideal candidate for receiving treatment, so you can make the most informed decision possible.

First, it’s important to assess any potential risks you could encounter. IV Therapy is very safe, but complications may occur if not administered correctly.

As with any treatment that involves an IV, there’s always a risk of infection. Although it’s not very likely, if the infusion is improperly administered or if any non-sterile equipment is used, bacteria can be transmitted directly to your bloodstream and then spread quickly. While it doesn’t happen often, in order to best prevent infection, it’s important to speak with a licensed medical professional and ask them to walk you through the steps they take to ensure safe, healthy treatment for their patients every time.

Another potential risk, though unlikely, is vitamin overdose. The nutrients used in IV Vitamin Therapy are good for you but if you have more in your system than your body can process, that can be deleterious. There are many different side effects people could experience when excess nutrients enter the body, most of them transitory, but if very excessive, it can have a lasting impact on your internal organs.

Blood clots or vein inflammation are other risk factors to consider, although these can be addressed if monitored by a medical professional. As with any infusion, it’s important that a healthy dose is given and that each patient’s reaction to the infusion is closely observed and managed.

Who needs IV Therapy or Nutrient Injections?

Patients who benefit from injections and IVs include those with:

  • Special nutritional needs due to their genetics
  • Long-term malabsorption due to poor gut health
  • Toxicity that has overwhelmed your ability to repair, detoxify and absorb
  • Infections that have weakened your immune system’s ability to defend you and kill unwanted organisms
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Excessive stress or unhealthy lifestyle habits
  • Aging – with aging comes decreased ability to digest, absorb, detoxify, and repair.
  • And more
How do I know whether I need an IV or an injection?

Available to you is a wide array of both IVs and injections. The clinicians of Root Cause Medical Clinic will help you decide what’s right for you. Your comprehensive health history, lab test findings, genetics and your symptoms are all taken into account when designing your IV and/or injection protocol.

Why is IV therapy superior to oral supplementation

The quantity of ingredients provided in IVs are at therapeutic levels that are impossible to be delivered orally. Either your gut would be unable to absorb it or the nutrient itself would be broken down by your gut and not delivered to the tissues that really need it.

Even the best oral supplements can be compromised in their efficacy due to poor digestive or liver function that diminishes your ability to absorb them.

The right IV can quickly jumpstart your body’s ability to absorb critical nutrients, leading to faster healing of your tissues and organs.

Depending on your condition, IV therapy is sometimes the only effective treatment for you. Your IV program is tailored to your exact nutritional deficiencies with powerful quantities of healing nutrients.

IV nutrition benefits you in a variety of ways such as boosting your immune system, boosting your energy, fighting acute and chronic infections, toxicity, and more.

How long do IVs take?

Depending on the type of IV you are receiving, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. IVs are delivered in comfortable reclining chairs and you receive full-time monitoring by the clinical staff. Your initial IV may be slower to get you accustomed to it and then subsequent IVs can be faster.

Does insurance cover IV therapy?

This form of treatment isn’t typically covered by most insurance policies.

Patient Success Story of Kristin

I wanted to take precaution of not getting COVID. 

I was feeling pretty darn great during that time.

After almost 3 years of not catching COVID... my symptoms were a stuffy nose, that was it. My recovery process was a day or two. I fully give the IVs credit.

Stella does an amazing job and this coming from someone that is terrified of needles. She does an amazing job at making you feel super comfortable.

I recommend it to all my friends and family.

Patient Success Story of
Victoria M.

I had been suffering with chronic fatigue, nerve pain, weight gain and hair loss. I had no “disease”, but I was unable to live my busy life due to complete exhaustion. A series of custom IVs gave me my life back. The IVs were done as part of an overall program, but without them I am sure my healing would have taken several more months. Thank you to the Doctors at Root Cause Medical.

Thank you so much for introducing me to IV therapy. When I started care I was not sleeping and having a lot of hot flashes, which in turn caused me to feel unrested in the morning. 

I've enjoyed meeting new people while getting my IVs. It has made me realize what a valuable tool in my toolbox of health these infusions are. I can say that after about the third IV, I began to have a more restful and deep sleep. This is helping me to have better energy during the day as well.

I wanted to let you know how much the UBVI has helped me with my Lyme symptoms.  When I first came to the clinic my brain fog and joint pains were rather debilitating. Now I feel so much better. Honestly, I thought I would never feel good again. Thanks for helping me feel like me again!
