IV Nutrition Therapy Q & A

What is IV nutrition therapy?

Each day, your body needs a steady stream of nutrients to thrive. On top of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats, you also need a wide range of vitamins and minerals. And you’re likely well aware that you’re supposed to drink plenty of water to keep your body sufficiently hydrated. Generally, you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces each day. It’s a lot to manage on a daily basis. 

It’s no surprise, then, that many people can’t keep up. They often turn to vitamins to make up for areas of shortage, but there is a more direct, effective way to give your body what it needs. 

With intravenous (IV) nutrition therapy at Jiki Medical Associates, you get a fast, extremely effective means to deliver all of the nutrients you need directly where your body needs them. 

Why would I need to get nutrients intravenously?

While eating a healthy, balanced diet and taking vitamins are excellent ways to help your body get the nutrients it needs, you lose some along the way. Why? When you ingest anything, it goes through your body’s digestive process. Some of the nutrients in the food you eat and the vitamins you take are lost in that process. 

So even if you’re extremely diligent about hitting the right nutrient levels for your body, you could still come up short. 

IV nutrition therapy bypasses the digestive process, introducing nutrients directly into your bloodstream, where your body can reap their full benefit. 

What should I expect from IV nutrition therapy?

Your IV nutrition therapy is tailored to you. Before you start this treatment, you talk with your Jiki Medical Associates provider about your usual daily diet and any symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Some of the most common symptoms of nutritional deficiencies are:

  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Unusual food cravings
  • Digestive problems
  • Lightheadedness
  • Trouble breathing
  • Trouble concentrating

By understanding your symptoms and your usual eating habits, your Jiki Medical Associates provider pinpoints the nutrients your body needs. Then, they create your IV solution to deliver those nutrients. 

The treatment itself usually takes an hour or less, a time when you can relax. You may want to bring a book or music to help pass the time.
