Who Benefits from IV Vitamin Therapy?

By: Michelle Eyler, ANP-BC


If you're like many men and women, you may be interested in a holistic approach for boosting your health and well-being — whether it be supplement therapy, a new workout routine, or something else. While many people have heard of IV therapy in general, they are often surprised to learn that IV drips are not reserved just for patients with illnesses or underlying conditions. In fact, almost anyone can potentially benefit from the health- and wellness-boosting benefits of IV nutrient therapy. At Ageless Skin and Laser Center in Hagerstown, MD, board-certified nurse practitioner Michelle Eyler is dedicated to helping patients feel like the best version of themselves and is proud to offer IV vitamin therapy as an exciting option to naturally boost your immune system, increase your energy levels, and more. Keep reading to discover who may benefit most from IV vitamin therapy, how IV therapy works, and more.

Why is IV therapy better than oral supplements?

Despite maintaining a balanced diet and taking supplements and vitamins regularly, factors like poor digestion or underlying medical conditions can hinder your body's ability to absorb essential nutrients effectively. IV vitamin therapy offers a solution by delivering a potent blend of vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream. This allows for rapid absorption, resulting in almost immediate benefits that would not be felt with oral vitamins and supplements.

Who can benefit from IV nutrient therapy?

IV vitamin therapy is a versatile treatment that can be used to address specific concerns and underlying conditions, and also simply to boost a patient's overall health, wellness, comfort, and more. Some of the symptoms and situations that may be most suitable for vitamin IV therapy include:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Inflammation
  • Stress
  • Dehydration
  • Recovery after illness or injury
  • Recovery after exercise or athletics
  • Recovery after drinking (hangover IV)
  • Enhance physical performance
  • Boost overall wellness

Additionally, IV therapy is often used simply to give the body's natural immune system a boost and to detox the body, which can help people feel more energized, focused, rested, and well — while also helping the body to better fend off future illnesses.

How does IV nutrient therapy work?

At Ageless Skin and Laser Center, each IV drip therapy is customized to align with the patient's unique needs and goals. Prior to administering IV therapy, Michelle will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the ideal blend of vitamins and minerals for your treatment plan. During the treatment, which typically lasts under an hour, patients can simply lie back and relax. Following IV therapy, many patients report an immediate improvement in their symptoms and overall energy levels, and there is no downtime or recovery time required.

How often can I get IV therapy for general wellness?

The treatment schedule and frequency for IV vitamin therapy will depend on the individual patient's needs, goals, current symptoms, lifestyle, and other personal factors. In some cases, one-time IV therapy may be considered to address an isolated event, like a hangover, while other patients may choose to undergo weekly IV vitamin therapy to keep the symptoms of a chronic condition at bay or simply to boost their health and immune system on a regular basis. Following your consultation, our team will help you better understand how often IV therapy may benefit you.
