IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy, also called Intravenous therapy, is a medical technique that administers nutrients, fluids, and medications directly into a person's vein and allows them to enter the bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system, allowing for better absorption and assimilation.

With IV therapy drip hydration, nutrients are instantly available, so your body can absorb what it needs before passing the remaining to your kidneys to be flushed out.

How can IV therapy benefit me?

IV therapy offers many surprising health and wellness benefits, including:

  • Treating certain nutrient deficiencies
  • Cleansing your body of toxins and free radicals
  • Increasing your energy levels
  • Promoting better cardiovascular health
  • Easing anxiety and promoting relaxation
  • Promoting faster weight loss*

It's no secret that losing weight can be challenging. Dr. Qureshi might recommend IV therapy as part of your weight loss treatment plan, using supplements like Carnitine, Alpha-lipoic acid, and Lipotropic injections to help you achieve your goals.

IV therapy can also assist your body in cleansing and removing toxins and free radicals that damage cells and cause aging. Vitamin C, Glutathione, and Alpha-lipoic acid are popular antioxidants used to support your body in its process.

Is IV therapy better than vitamins and supplements?

There are several benefits to IV therapy over oral medications, vitamins, and supplements, including: 

  • Higher absorption rate than oral medications
  • More extended periods of medication efficacy
  • More personalized treatment options

Dr. Qureshi also offers micronutrient testing to measure the levels of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids within your white blood cells. He understands your body's deficiencies accurately, so you get nutrients that boost your health.

The doctor recommends only the best quality, so you can trust that what you're taking is absorbed and effectively utilized by your body.

Dr. Qureshi can also recommend vitamins and supplements in addition to IV therapy, based on your symptoms, health goals, and medical history. He can also ensure that the vitamins and supplements you take don't cause a reaction if you take a particular medication or have a chronic disease.
