Frequently Asked Questions on IV Therapy

  1. What is IV therapy?
    1. Intravenous (IV) vitamin drips deliver replenishing fluids, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly to the body for maximum absorption. This allows the nutrients to flood the bloodstream and nourish itself at the cellular level. By using this method, we can safely deliver larger doses that would otherwise not be fully distributed or tolerated orally. IV drips can be used proactively to maintain optimum wellness and also to treat acute and chronic conditions.
  2. Are infusions safe?
    1. Yes, our infusions are very safe, provided they are administered by board certified registered nurses (RNs). Our medical professionals evaluate and monitor each patient during infusions to ensure your protection. Additionally, our top-quality natural drips contain just the right amount of nutrients that does not allow for overdose.
  3. What’s in the bag?
    1. The drips can vary depending on the menu or much more customized based on your particular needs. We carry and administer the same hospital-grade ingredients, supplies, and equipment with all our drips, boosters, and shots. We only use first-rate vitamins, minerals, and amino acids from certified pharmacies.
  4. How long does it take?
    1. It varies. Most of our drips take anywhere between 30-45 minutes, depending on your specific iv drip of choice. Our boosters and shots are conveniently added to the drips or administered directly to the patient. This process adds little to no time to the total drip.
  5. Are drips most effective before, during, or after exercise, illness, stress, or events?
    1. All of the above. Our drips are designed to prepare, as well as replenish, your body from the strenuous activities you put it through. The vitamins and minerals in our IV’s will help with cellular rejuvenation and advanced recovery. Whether you are feeling under the weather, fatigued from overexertion or jetlag, or depleted from a night of overconsumption, we are here to help!
  6. Does it hurt?
    1. HBOT cares immensely about our patients’ wellness and comfort. We have an amazing team here to help. Most of our in-home infusion specialists are experienced RN’s who work in hospitals and therefore have the skills necessary to provide high quality service. We provide a relatively pain-free experience in any event, everyone’s pain threshold is different just let us know. While most find it painless, others may feel brief discomfort upon needle insertion. Generally, people find the infusion itself quite relaxing.
  7. How often do I have to get an IV for it to be effective?
    1. Most of our clients see dramatic results after their first IV. The rejuvenating effects on your body depend on your nutritional demands and hydration status. Our clients who receive IVs regularly may obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance. Some receive them several times a week, while others return on a weekly or biweekly basis. We also have package options for boosters in between IVs to carry you through in between drips. HBOT can tailor your IV therapy to accommodate your body’s demands.
  8. What results should I expect from infusions?
    1. Almost instantly most of our clients notice an increase in energy and an overall enhanced health boost. Optimum vitamin and mineral levels support proper metabolism, cortisol levels, cellular health, mood, and good sleep patterns. Our drips and boosters can also give your immune system a huge boost, which is very helpful during winter months and allergy season.
  9. Are there any side effects during the IV process?
    1. No major side effects are generally seen. Occasionally, our clients may report cooling of their arm or a warm sensation as certain nutrients enter their bloodstream. These are normal occurrences.
  10. How do I get started?
    1. At HBOT, we want to make this as convenient as possible for you, our client, while making sure you are well-informed about our products and opportunities to optimize your overall wellness. Please feel free to stop by our location on Kirby or read up on our IV infusions and their benefits on our website. You can conveniently make an appointment online, by phone, or on the MindBody app.
  11. Is there anything I should do in preparation for an IV drip?
    1. For best results, we recommend drinking plenty of water and having some food in your stomach upon meeting with a nurse.
  12. Can I resume my activities/work after a drip?
    1. Yes, you can resume normal daily activities after a drip. In fact, your day just got that much better!
  13. Why IV therapy instead of pills?
    1. The value of IV nutrient therapy lies in creating an exponentially higher blood level of nutrients. IV therapy bypasses digestion, and drives nutrients directly into cells. This provides for higher cellular uptake of nutrients not afforded with oral or intramuscular routes. In this way, nutrients have a more therapeutic effect.
  14. Who are drips for?
    1. Everyone! Male or female, young or old, short or tall, active lifestyle or chained to the desk. Everyone is unique and so are their nutrient requirements. There are many options for IV therapy depending on individual goals, and designed to meet a range of different needs. Ask about our micronutrient testing to see exactly what you may be low or deficient in.
  15. How soon can I expect to see results?
    1. Effects can be felt immediately and results last anywhere from several days to several weeks.
