A Fluid Approach To Feeling Better

Youtherapy in Scarsdale and NYC offer IV therapy to reinvigorate your body on the inside

What is IV Therapy?

IV therapy is a delivery method for fluids and medication. “IV” stands for intravenous, which means it’s administered through the veins. The fluid that contains vitamins and minerals or medication is delivered via an IV drip or injection into the vein, which allows the therapy to move quickly through your bloodstream.

What can IV Therapy be used for?

IV Therapy for Headaches and Migraine Relief

Intravenous infusions (IV therapy) can provide respite from migraines in several ways. They provide hydration, electrolytes, and vitamins that are delivered directly into your bloodstream. This means faster and more effective relief than taking oral medications. IV therapy also quells overactive nerve endings, as well as targets each individual symptom — inflammation, pain, and nausea — at the same time. Each infusion therapy can last between one to two hours and provides benefits in addition to migraine relief. These may include increased energy levels, as well as boost your mood and promote relaxation.

IV Therapy for Hangovers

Drinking alcohol suppresses your body’s antidiuretic hormone (ADH), which normally plays a huge role in reabsorbing fluid back into your body. At the same time, alcohol acts as a diuretic, pulling fluid along with it as it is excreted. Even though alcohol consumption is fun, it can lead to some serious dehydration. Replace these fluids and electrolytes are step one to relieving your misery. The added benefit of doing this with IV therapy is you don’t have to worry about drinking all of that fluid that sounds pretty terrible in your current state of nausea and/or vomiting.

IV Therapy for Vitamin Deficiency

Intravenous vitamin drips are customized blends of vitamins in saline solution (the saline is at a concentration level that is similar to the blood’s own salt levels). The vitamins to use for a given patient are picked by our Youtherapy technicians, depending on the kinds of vitamins that they need. Vitamins may be blended together for better fat-burning ability, for a hangover, jet lag, or simply for better immunity. Intravenous vitamin therapy is designed to directly deliver intensive supplies of nutrients to the body. The nutrient concentrations made possible by the IV route tend to be difficult to achieve through the conventional oral or intramuscular routes.
