FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The cost of your IV therapy will depend on what kind of nutrients/ treatment IV fluids you are receiving and how many times the treatment will be repeated. For instance, you could take IV therapy to boost immunity, cure a hangover, improve cognitive ability, bio-hacking, and much more. At LIVV Natural Health, we have various types of IV therapy packages ranging anywhere from $100-$1,000 per IV. We also have specialty therapies and monthly IV therapy packages.
The duration of your IV therapy will depend on the amount of treatment IV fluids, which is determined by your needs. Our quick and easy 100ml hydration bag only takes 10-15 minutes to administer. The slightly bigger 250ml package takes 25-30 minutes, while a larger 500ml bag takes anywhere from 35-40 minutes.
At LIVV Natural Health, the three main types of IV fluids we use are:
- Saline- This is the normal saline which acts as our base fluid.
- Vitamins, minerals, and amino acids- We use high-quality vitamins such as the B Vitamins and Vitamin C, which are useful in boosting immunity, skin health and healing wounds.
- Glutathione- Glutathione is rich in antioxidant properties with anti-aging benefits. It also can improve metabolic function and fight stress and inflammation.
Yes, IV therapy has a host of benefits to the body and overall health. It delivers much-needed nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly to the bloodstream, where it is absorbed 100%. This is in contrast with taking these nutrients orally, which only results in 30% absorption. Our IV therapy also delivers customized nutrients that your body needs, which enables you to enjoy optimal health.
IV infusion medication can be dangerous because, without proper caution, air can get into the IV line, causing air bubbles. If air bubbles get injected into the vein, they can travel to the heart or lungs, putting the patient at risk for a heart attack or pulmonary embolism. An improper injection procedure can also cause infiltration. Infiltration occurs when the fluid being delivered leaks to the surrounding tissue causing pain, swelling or tissue damage.
It is possible to have your IV drip done at home, only if it is administered by medically qualified personnel such as a nurse, doctor, or physician’s assistant. At LIVV Natural Health, we are currently offering at home-based IV therapies, but only parties greater than 10 people. Please call for further questions.
Yes, at our IV therapy clinic in San Diego, Vitamin B12 is one of the primary nutrients we give in IV therapy. Vitamin B12 is crucial in keeping our nerves and blood cells healthy. Having a sufficient amount of this vitamin is vital as it protects us from anemia, which would leave us feeling weak and fatigued with pale skin.
How often you should do IV therapy will depend on your health, situation, and needs. For example, if you need an IV treatment to cure a hangover, then you will have this done once. A patient receiving High dose Vitamin C IV therapy in, for example, will require more sessions. Since all our treatments are customized according to your needs, we will advise you on how many treatments you need after evaluating your needs.
You can take the nutrients used in IV therapy orally, but the results will not be felt immediately. For example, if you try curing a hangover by drinking water or electrolytes, it may take several hours until you feel better. IV therapy, on the other hand, will be absorbed into the body immediately, which means you will feel better quicker. Additionally, when you take nutrients via IV, you are assured of 100% absorption, while oral administration only achieves 30% absorption.
Having a 30 minute IV therapy session and living on IV fluids only are two entirely different things. People who live on IV fluids are likely suffering from severe health conditions such as Crohn’s Disease, obstructed bowels, or shortened intestines. It is essential to consult a specialist for advice on long term IV fluid use.
IV drips should not hurt, and at the very least, all you should feel is a small pinch as the needle pierces the skin. If it hurts, then it may have been wrongly inserted. At LIVV Natural Health, all our staff is highly trained for this procedure, and you would have nothing to worry about with us.
Yes, it does. At LIVV Natural Health, we have what we call LIVV Revive, a hangover IV fluid therapy specifically designed to cure hangovers. Depending on your needs, you can have the 100ml bag that costs $100, the 250ml bag that goes for $175 or our best-seller, the 500ml bag going for $250. This therapy quickly detoxifies you while delivering much-needed nutrients to your body.
IV drips are used to deliver nutrients to the body intravenously, that is, through the veins. This is a far quicker method as opposed to say oral administration, as it takes the nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This is an efficient way to do this as it ensures 100% absorption, which leads to quick action.
When an IV drips too fast, it can lead to what is known as a vaso-vagal reaction. This can result in fainting, increased perspiration, and low blood pressure. At LIVV, all our IV therapies are administered by highly qualified and professional staff, who will ensure that your IV therapy drip is properly administered.
IV medication goes to work immediately as it is delivered directly into the bloodstream. Some IV therapies at our San Diego clinic take as little as 15 minutes to administer, within which you will feel energized and ready to bounce back to your daily routine. Some of our customers who have gone through treatments such as PRP injections for shoulder pain have reported feeling better in one week.
Death is highly unlikely, but improper administration of a drip can result in an infection in the area, vein irritation, and inflammation. Receiving too much of certain fluids can also cause serious health issues if proper consultation is not done beforehand. For instance, a patient with congestive heart failure can be endangered by fluid overload.
The majority of our clients have had IV therapy successfully without any adverse side effects. As a precaution, however, it is useful to note that IV therapy may have possible side effects, including nausea, heavy perspiration, lethargy, and allergic reactions.
