What is the fastest way to replenish nutrients and vitamins back into your system? With the use of IV therapy. Physicians now use IV Therapy as a delivery mechanism for various vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
The Myers’ Cocktail is the most well-known version - and while it put IV Therapy on the map as an exciting new delivery method for transforming health, it is now only one of many IV Therapy options.
The delivery of vitamins, minerals, and a vast array of nutrient combinations via intravenous access can be one of the most powerful tools for revolutionizing your health, as they are introduced directly into the circulatory system and quickly absorbed. The rate of absorption is 92% vs. only a 50% rate of absorption via the oral route where nutrients are ingested by mouth. This is a tremendous difference, especially if you are suffering from a chronic condition.
IV Therapy is a medical protocol utilized to administer medications, vitamins, minerals, and an array of nutrients when increased or rapid absorption is needed. IV access is sometimes used because it avoids first-pass metabolism in the liver. IV Therapy can also be used to correct electrolyte imbalances and rehydrate the body.
IV bars have become all the rage – with most boasting a "menu" from which you can choose. However, at Water’s Edge, we believe it is imperative that our patients understand their options in the context of medical guidance and expertise.

IV Therapy impacts everyone differently, but there are common results patients typically experience.
From increasing energy levels to promoting weight loss or detoxing your body, IV Therapy can be a remarkably effective tool for creating a renewed state of wellness. It has been shown to be effective in improving conditions like:
IV Therapy has an outstanding safety profile. It has a long history of use in everyday medical practice and has been commonly used to provide nutrients for coma patients and others who are unable to consume food or water by mouth – sometimes for decades.
There is no risk of disease transmission. Talk to your provider before the procedure if you're taking any medications that may be an issue or if you experience any severe discomfort after your treatment.
The results you experience from IV Therapy will vary according to individual factors like age, genetic background, as well as lifestyle, health, and past and present environmental conditions.
On your first visit, our team will discuss your medical history, lifestyle, daily stressors, diet, exercise habits, and current medications. We may ask you questions about your sleep, appetite, bowel movements, and current emotional state, all to fully understand what areas of your health would benefit from treatment.
The entire IV Therapy process, which includes preparation and infusion, takes approximately 1 to 3 hours. Our providers will provide instructions on how to prepare for your appointment. For instance, in some cases, certain medications like anticoagulants or NSAIDs may need to be temporarily paused.
The first step to any treatment – including IV Therapy - is to understand your overall health and the specific conditions you wish to treat. We can then zero in on which type(s) of IV Therapy might be right for you. Because illness or chronic conditions can be caused by numerous underlying factors, there should never be a one-size-fits-all approach with IV Therapy treatment options. In some instances, the wrong IV Therapy choices may actually worsen your condition.
Working with a knowledgeable, experienced practitioner is the most important step you can take before embarking on any IV Therapy protocol.
