Intravenous (IV) therapy is a treatment where you receive nutrient-packed fluids through a small catheter (thin flexible tube) in an arm vein. This treatment approach can give you a large amount of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients over the course of just 30-60 minutes.
IV therapy offers impressive results for a wide range of issues and health problems. The Primary Medical Physicians, LLC team can tailor blends of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to help with:
The team can discuss your needs and objectives with you and recommend a customized IV therapy blend to give you optimal results.
IV therapy gives you fast results because the nutrients are absorbed directly into your blood right away. The IV route is much faster than taking the same supplements orally because any supplements taken by mouth must go through the lengthy digestive process.
IV therapy also allows your body to absorb much bigger doses of nutrients than you’d be able to get in other ways. When you take supplements orally, you lose up to half (or more) of the nutrients during digestion, but IV therapy offers 100% bioavailability, or complete absorption.
Primary Medical Physicians, LLC offers a relaxing environment to receive IV therapy in their Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, and Davie offices.
You’ll sit in a comfortable chair for the treatment as your provider inserts the needle and catheter. They withdraw the needle and tape the catheter in place on your inner elbow or hand. This needle stick is very small and virtually painless.
You can read, play a game on your phone, or just close your eyes and relax during the treatment. The infusion bag (a clear plastic bag full of fluid) empties gradually as the catheter delivers your nutrient-filled fluid into your vein.
Most patients find the treatment very comfortable, but you might experience a slight metallic taste in the back of your mouth or a little coldness around the catheter entry point in your vein. These issues fade right away at the end of your treatment.
