IV Therapy

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a specialized treatment that infuses vital nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Even if you eat a balanced, healthy diet, you may not be getting all the essential things your body needs, due to absorption issues or lack of nutrition in the food supply. By bypassing your digestive system, IV nutrition therapy can deliver nutrients directly to the organs that need them to restore and enhance health.

What types of IV therapy are available?

Chicago Fat Doctor offers a number of IV therapy options to help improve your nutritional health. Some of the practice’s IV therapy options include:

  • Myers Cocktail
  • Glutathione detox push
  • Mega C Immunity

The specialists also offer IV boosters, which are specialized nutrients or cocktails that support specific health needs. Some of the boosters available at Chicago Fat Doctor include:

  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin C
  • Glutathione
  • Lipotropic injection
  • Vitamin D3

Some of the boosters can be given as an intramuscular injection instead of through an intravenous drip, which means quicker nutrient delivery.

How do I know what type of IV therapy is best for me?

Your specialist at Chicago Fat Doctor can help you determine the type of IV therapy that makes the best choice for you based on your nutrient needs and health goals. Each IV infusion cocktail offers specific health benefits. For example, the Myers Cocktail contains calcium, magnesium, and B vitamins, including B12, and is used to hydrate, help you fight stress, and improve adrenal fatigue.

Your specialist can design an infusion program that not only restores your nutrient levels immediately, but also helps maximize your nutrition as a preventive measure against health issues related to nutrient deficiencies.

What can I expect during IV therapy?

Your specialist wants you to feel relaxed and comfortable during your IV therapy. Depending on your infusion, it may take 45 to 60 minutes for you to get your hydration and vitamin therapy. Because the nutrients are infused directly into your bloodstream, you should feel an immediate benefit and your nutrient levels should remain elevated for up to three weeks after your session.
