Injection and IV Frequently Asked Questions
IV nutritional therapy is often used for its wide range of benefits, which can include:
- Hydration and recovery
- Enhanced immunity
- Reduced anxiety
- Improved symptoms of hangovers
- And much more
Due to IV treatments being administered directly into the veins, the results can be much faster than other traditional medications. Many physicians believe IV therapy can be a safe, effective and restorative option for a variety of health issues, and it can be personalized to address unique needs of each patient individually.
There are many uses for IV nutrient therapy, as these medications can be customized to address a variety of ailments and symptoms. Depending on the patient’s desired results, IV solutions may benefit individuals, like: athletes or fitness enthusiasts who want to improve their performance or muscle recovery time, people who struggle with allergies and want to relieve their symptoms, individuals that would like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or other signs of aging, people experiencing constant fatigue and more.
Essentially, anyone may benefit from IV vitamin therapy if they’re experiencing any deficiency of a particular vitamin or mineral. A medical professional can best help determine the best type of nutrients to use IV therapy for that can help alleviate target problem areas.
Anyone with a major pre-existing illness 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.
When it comes to IV nutrition therapy, many newcomers to this unique form of treatment have questions—most importantly: is IV vitamin therapy safe?
If you’re considering taking advantage of IV nutrient therapy but aren’t yet sure about it, here are some important things to know about the benefits, risks, who the ideal candidates are for receiving treatment and other helpful information so you can make the most informed decision possible.
First, it’s important to assess any potential risks you could encounter. IV treatment 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 it’s unlikely—is vitamin overdose. It’s an example of having “too much of a good thing.” While the nutrients used in IV vitamin therapy are good for you, it’s possible to have more in your system than your body can process. There are many different side effects people could experience when excess nutrients enter the body, but generally speaking, 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 bodily reaction to the infusion is closely observed and managed.
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
Your need of injections or IVs should not be needed long-term. Once the underlying root cause of your condition has been addressed, oral supplementation is typically all that is required to maintain your regained health.
Specific IVs we frequently use are discussed below. Your doctor may also customize a unique IV not seen below depending on your condition.
As you can see there are a wide array of both IVs and injections. Root Cause Medicine is a uniquely sophisticated type of care that takes your entire health history, genetics, lab test findings plus your symptoms all into account and then your clinical team will recommend one or more IVs or injections to assist in your health program.
The ingredients in the IVs you are provided 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.
We find IV therapy to be an important adjunct in our customized care programs.
IVs are beneficial in that they can quickly deliver nutrition to the tissues and cells of your body in greater quantities than you can ingest orally.
Even the best oral supplements can be compromised in their efficacy due to poor digestive function or liver malfunction that compromises your ability to absorb them.
While your program is addressing the root cause of your health problem, an 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. The IV is tailored to your exact nutritional deficiencies with powerful quantities of healing nutrients.
The IVs we utilize at Root Cause Medical are composed of all-natural nutrients, not drugs. Your body effortlessly utilizes these nutrients to begin its healing process.
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.
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.
This form of treatment isn’t typically covered by most insurance policies.
Patient Success Story of
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.
Patient Success by
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!
