IV therapy is the perfect way to get the support you need for a chronic condition, improve your overall health, or simply rehydrate. At the IV Wellness in Winter Park, FL, we believe that you can live life to the fullest with this therapy, and we can’t wait to help you get there.
How Often Should You Get IV Therapy?
The rate of therapy you need will depend on your unique health needs and why you’re having therapy in the first place. It all starts with a consultation, where we discover your needs and goals. Then we can make a treatment plan that will work for you.
The frequency of treatment is always based entirely on your needs. Are you getting hydration and energy-boosting supplements? Getting treatment every week can give you the punch you need to work out at your best or live life to the fullest.
Are you seeking a detoxifying and fortifying treatment of vitamin C or the B vitamins and biotin? Getting treated once a month or so can give you glowing hair, skin, and nails. Do you want a hangover treatment that can get you back to feeling yourself fast? Treatment should happen whenever you need it.
Adjusting Along the Way
As we help you achieve optimum health and wellness, we’ll also help you understand how you’re doing and whether you need to have treatment more or less often. Our goal is to get you just exactly what you need, as often as you need it.
On average, people suffering from a health issue or with a specific issue they want to address should seek out about six cycles of therapy. This will boost your vitality and give you more energy. Once you’ve finished your initial cycle, you may want treatment once or twice a month. Some treatments may be better once every three months, but it’s all personalized to your needs.
Why Consider IV Therapy?
This therapy is more effective than any pill. It sends the nutrients you need directly into the bloodstream, and that means they get right to work helping you feel better. They do this faster and better than through diet or oral supplements.
Why Isn’t Diet Enough?
A well-balanced diet should theoretically have everything you need for good health. Yet often it doesn’t.
The problem for some of us lies in what we’re eating (or not eating). We want to eat well, but eating well-balanced meals every day can be very expensive. Even if money isn’t an object, time can be. It simply takes time and effort to prepare good meals, and for those of us with heavy life and work responsibilities, time can be far more precious than money.
We all know that eating vegetables and fruits is a great way to ensure good health–so why doesn’t it always seem to work the way it should? Soil depletion is a possible issue. Modern mass-farming techniques result in plenty of quantity, but quality is lacking.
Plants get their nutrition from the soil they grow in, and when the soil can’t replenish nutrients slowly and naturally, the plants are malnourished. You can get around this by sourcing fresh food from local, organic farms, but not all of us can afford to do this, and not all of us have ready access to a wide range of local, organic foods.
For the human animal, meat is the perfect, bio-available source of nutrition. We digest meat easily, and if the animals we eat have fed well on nutritious plant matter, they process nutrition from plants–like grass–that our bodies can’t deal with directly.
It’s a great system: unless we’re eating factory-raised animals. Factory-raised cows, for example, don’t eat the natural diet of healthy grasses their digestive systems were made to process. They are stuffed with an unnatural diet of molasses, grains, and anything else that will force them to put on weight quickly. The cow doesn’t get what it needs to thrive, so we don’t either.
Even if you eat a well-balanced, healthy diet of plants from nutritious soil and animals fed a natural, healthy diet, it may still not be enough if you’re fighting a chronic disease or an illness like cancer. It might not be enough if your life is full of stress and difficulty.
Whenever life demands more of your body than normal, the body needs more support than normal. You use up vitamin and mineral stores more quickly, and certain diseases even make it harder for your body to absorb the nutrition it needs.
What About Supplements?
You might already be aware that diet alone isn’t always enough to get the nutrition you need. So what about oral supplements?
The Question of Bioavailability
To understand this issue, consider nuts and seeds. We all know these are full of nutrients, but the reality is that we don’t always get all that nutrition when we eat these foods.
Nuts and seeds contain something called phytic acid. This binds to nutrients and blocks them from being absorbed. There’s nutrition in these foods, but they’re not as bioavailable as we would like to think.
Bioavailability and Oral Supplements
Oral vitamin supplements have the same problem as food. Whenever you take an oral supplement, it’s very hard to say how much of it will actually be effectively absorbed by your body. Some vitamins need fat in order to be absorbed. Other nutrients can be blocked by something else we eat or by issues with our own digestive system.

The good news is that IV therapy can bypass the digestive system and all the issues that keep us from enjoying the full benefit of what we ingest. To learn more about how IV therapy could help you, contact IV Wellness in Winter Park, FL today.
