IV Infusion Therapy Q&A

What is IV infusion therapy?

IV infusion therapy is a way of delivering essential vitamins and minerals into your body when you need extra nutritional support.

The infusions of micronutrients go straight into your bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) needle and a line or cannula — a slender tube that gradually feeds the infusion into your blood.

IV infusion therapy could be more effective than taking oral vitamin and mineral supplements for some people. Oral medications have to travel through your digestive system, which may not be able to absorb the micronutrients with the same efficiency that an IV infusion offers.

What conditions can IV infusion therapy help treat?

IV infusion therapy has been in use for decades as an effective way of treating general malaise and boosting the immune system. Researchers are finding new applications all the time, as vitamins and minerals play such an essential role in good health.

At Naples Longevity Clinic, patients report feeling an improvement in symptoms associated with many health problems, including:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Stress
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic pain

Strengthening your immune system through IV infusion therapy helps prevent disease and infection. It could also reduce chronic inflammation, helping relieve the symptoms of conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis.

IV infusion therapy can also give your body a much-needed pick-me-up if you've been sick or when you've pushed yourself too hard. It can even help you recover when you have a hangover. IV infusion therapy could also help slow down the aging process.

What types of IV infusions are available?

There are standard IV infusions available — the most well-known is Myers’ cocktail, named after the doctor who originally developed the blend. Myers’ cocktail is a broad-spectrum infusion for improving overall health and wellness.

The Naples Longevity Clinic team creates specialized blends for patients to address specific health problems. They also customize blends for individual patients, so you receive the exact combination of vitamins and minerals you need.

What happens when I have IV infusion therapy?

Your IV infusion therapy session at Naples Longevity Clinic is more like a spa experience than a medical treatment.

Your session takes 40-60 minutes. You relax in comfort while your provider inserts the needle into your arm or hand and attaches it to the cannula. You might feel a brief scratch or pinch as the needle goes in, but there should be minimal discomfort.

While the IV infusion drips into your bloodstream, you can entertain yourself with a good book or watch a movie. You could just enjoy the relaxation or have a restorative nap. After your IV infusion therapy session, you can go about your day as usual.
