Many people take oral supplements and vitamins to keep their bodies healthy or get a boost when they are not feeling well. However, did you know that IV therapy is an option to deliver medications and nutrients more efficiently? In New York, NY, the NY Center for Integrative Medicine offers IV therapy and explains the cost and benefits of the treatment for improving patients’ overall health and wellness.
It is hard to get all of the necessary nutrients for a healthy body from eating the right foods. Intravenous or IV therapy delivers medication quickly into the bloodstream. This process bypasses the gastrointestinal system and the need to digest and metabolize the medication. IV therapy helps with health issues such as dehydration, migraines, nausea, pain, exhaustion, and more. The body gets the vitamins and nutrients it needs to function correctly and help patients look and feel their best.
A consultation with our medical team is necessary to determine which therapy is best suited for each patient’s needs. During the consultation, our doctors review the patient’s medical history and current symptoms or concerns to develop a customized treatment plan. A comprehensive evaluation, blood work, and testing are performed to ensure a complete picture and diagnosis.
The exact cost of IV therapy depends on the patient’s needs and blend of nutrients and medications. The treatment is personalized for each individual. IV therapy ranges from $100-$400 each, depending on formulation, with packages individually recommended by the doctor. Compared to oral supplements, IV therapy is more efficient and cost-effective. With oral medications, the body may only absorb up to fifty percent of the vitamins, whereas up to ninety percent of IV therapy nutrients are absorbed.
Additionally, compared to purchasing numerous vitamins alone, the cost of potentially unnecessary supplements can add up. Under a doctor’s guidance, IV therapy takes the patient’s specific needs and conditions into consideration to develop a therapeutic mixture of vitamins. The exact formula used for IV therapy is based on your physiology to ensure the proper medications are used.
IV therapy offers patients several benefits, including efficiency, effectiveness, convenience, and personalization.
