Should IV Therapy Become a Monthly Health Routine?

Should IV Therapy Become a Monthly Health Routine?
Do you enjoy the benefits of IV therapy, but you’re not sure how frequently you should have sessions? Here, we discuss how often you should get different types of IV therapy infusions.

Intravenous (IV) lines are a vital tool in the medical world, and for good reason. IV therapy is able to deliver any necessary fluids or medications quickly and efficiently, which is especially beneficial in an emergency situation. 

But did you know that IV therapy can be used for so much more than medical emergencies? IV infusion therapy has quickly gained popularity due to its ability to provide wellness in a variety of ways. 

At Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness in Spring, Texas, Ben W. Cilento, MD, MHA, and the rest of our team provide IV therapy for the benefit of your health. Here, we discuss the ins and outs of IV therapy, including how often you should receive infusions. 

Explaining IV therapy 

IV therapy works by infusing a high dose of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants — along with hydrating fluids — directly into your bloodstream. Introducing nutrients to your body this way bypasses your digestive system completely, allowing you to receive much higher levels of the nutrients more quickly. 

IV therapy can address a number of conditions and health issues such as chronic fatigue, anemia, a weakened immune system, jet lag, hangovers, and chronic pain by providing you with increased hydration and vitamin levels. 

These IV infusions can give you energy, flush out toxins, address vitamin deficiencies, restore electrolyte balance, boost your immune system function, and so much more, making it a go-to solution for overall health and wellness. 

What kind of infusions are available?

While we can cater to many different health concerns and wellness issues by designing custom infusions, these are some of the most popular IV blends at Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness:

Immunity boost

It’s never a bad time to improve the function of your immune system. This cocktail contains ascorbic acid, B vitamins, and zinc.

How often do you need infusions?

When you come in for any of our infusions, you simply lie back in one of our comfortable chairs while we hook up the IV line. Then you can scroll on your phone, read a book, or listen to music for 20-60 while the infusion goes to work.

The frequency of your IV therapy sessions is highly dependent on why you need them and what you expect from them.  

If you need IV therapy for recovering from an intense workout or hangover, you can simply come in on an as-needed basis. However, if you struggle with chronic fatigue, dehydration, or vitamin deficiency, you may need infusions on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. 

For general health and wellness, once a month is an ideal IV infusion schedule. 

There’s no time like the present to get started with IV therapy. Call our team at Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness in Spring, Texas, to schedule your IV infusion session today, or book an appointment online at your convenience.
