A personal IV drip is an intravenous therapy tailored specifically to your health and wellness needs. The treatment can be administered at the comfort of your home by a registered nurse. Continue reading to learn more about personal IV drips and the benefits of this type of therapy.
What is in an IV drip?
During intravenous treatment, a fluid solution is slowly infused into your bloodstream from a drip bag. The solution typically contains hydrating fluids, vitamins, electrolytes, and optional medications.
Normal saline, a mixture of water and sodium chloride, is the base of all IV solutions. It helps hydrate and nourish your body, facilitates the delivery of vitamins and minerals, and dilutes medications.
Vitamins play a crucial role in maintaining optimal health and well-being, they strengthen your immune system and boost your energy levels. IV drips usually contain vitamin B complex that improves brain function and cell metabolism and vitamin C that helps maintain your muscles and bones. However, you can have almost any vitamin infused into your body through intravenous treatment.
The most common electrolytes used in IV drips are potassium, calcium, and magnesium. These essential minerals hydrate the body and regulate nerve and muscle function.
In addition to the common ingredients mentioned above, some IV solutions may include anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory medication to help reduce inflammation and pain when you’re not feeling your best.
Benefits of IV fluid drip
Intravenous therapy is the most convenient and effective way of delivering nutrients directly into your bloodstream. IV fluids completely bypass the digestive system, allowing a 100% absorption rate of the vitamins and minerals, as opposed to only 20-50% if they were taken as supplements. With this type of therapy, it is possible to safely deliver larger doses of nutrients that would not be tolerated orally.
What’s more, you will feel increased energy, mental clarity, and other beneficial effects of IV drip almost immediately after the therapy and they will last for days.
Vitamin deficiency prevention
Vitamins are indispensable for keeping your brain, skin, bones, and blood healthy. IV drips help replenish the body’s vitamin supply, prevent vitamin deficiency, and alleviate symptoms associated with certain medical conditions.
IV drips can be completely customized to meet your health goals with a hand-picked selection of ingredients. You can choose among a selection of additional vitamins, minerals, and medicines to optimize the effects of the ingredients in your package.
IV therapy is a very safe, non-invasive procedure. IV formulas are administered by highly trained medical professionals who have extensive experience in providing intravenous therapy. In addition, treatments are approved and supervised by qualified health professionals.
Side effects and allergic reactions to IV drip ingredients are extremely rare, although some people may experience skin irritation and discomfort at the insertion site.
Can I get an IV drip at home?
Concierge services like Reset IV bring intravenous treatments to your door 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. At-home IV therapy eliminates the hassle of driving to a clinic and waiting for your treatment. Besides, you can choose to have therapy delivered in your home, your office, a gym, a hotel room, or any other location.
IV therapy administered at home uses the exact same methods as hospitals. A nurse will insert a needle into a vein in the back of your hand and push a small tube called a catheter over it. After the needle is removed, the catheter remains in your vein and delivers nutrients to your bloodstream. The nurse will continue to monitor you for any reactions and ensure the IV stays in place during treatment.
There’s no downtime required. You will simply have a bandage placed on the insertion site and you can immediately resume your normal daily activities.
What can an IV drip help with?
IV drip can be used as a preventive for maintaining optimum health, but also to help improve certain chronic conditions. Here are some of the most common reasons for administering personal IV drips.
Intravenous therapy can offer respite from migraine headaches. IV drips provide hydration, while at the same time delivering electrolytes and vitamins directly into your bloodstream for fast and effective relief. Magnesium sulfate is commonly used as part of IV treatment to decrease sensitivity to light and sound in patients suffering from migraines.
IV drip is a fast and effective way to combat hangover symptoms such as headache, dehydration, nausea, and upset stomach. Nutrients in hangover IV packages will not only rehydrate your body, but also flush out toxins and restore any nutrients you lost while drinking.
Recovery from illness
IV drips will boost your immunity by delivering vitamins and other nutrients that your body needs to fight off illness. Intravenous therapy can also help delay or prevent the onset of respiratory illnesses and other chronic conditions.
An IV drip for jet lag contains fluids, anti-inflammatories, and vitamins that your body needs to re-energize after long-distance travel. It is beneficial both before and after your flight.
