The intravenous (iV) procedure is common practice in the medical field and is associated with minimal complications if performed with proper training. The most common risk (yet still often rare) can be bruising at the iV site. We do our best to reduce this risk by providing detailed instructions on post procedure recommendations. At Replenish, our medical professionals are highly trained and take the utmost care to ensure that your therapy is as safe as possible.
ARE VITAMINS CONSUMED IN WHOLE FOODS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE YOU RECEIVE THROUGH AN iV or iM INJECTION AT REPLENISH?
All vitamins, minerals and antioxidants we use at Replenish are USP verified. This means they have the highest certification possible that they are not only the exact nutrient you would consume through whole foods, but they are also the purest form available.
DOES IT HURT?
Typically, there is a very small amount of pain associated with iV placement (a little pinch!). If you're worried about the pain, we can help numb the site with a topical numbing techniques.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET iV THERAPY?
Our providers at Replenish can help tailor each guests therapy individually. Depending on your goals, iV therapy can be administered as often as once a week.
WHERE DO WE GET OUR NUTRIENTS?
All of our Vitamins, Minerals, and Antioxidants are compounded from reputable PCAB accredited compounding pharmacies that we trust. These nutrients are also USP verified which means they have the highest certification possible that they are not only the exact nutrient you would consume through whole foods, but are also the purest form available.
All of the materials we use for iV therapy are FDA approved, sterile, and single use.
HOW LONG DO VITAMINS/MINERALS STAY IN THE BODY AFTER AN iV?
Truthfully, it varies based on multiple factors (primarily which nutrients, solubility, and how deficient the body is of those nutrients).
Intravenous administration allows for 100% absorption of nutrients at higher concentrations into the serum (where the body can most easily access these nutrients). This gives a significantly longer and greater opportunity for cells to absorb the nutrients. ⠀
Although, some nutrients taken up by the cells may eventually escape after an iV infusion, healing takes place before they do. Research has shown that if cells are repeatedly “flooded” with nutrients in this fashion, continued health improvement occurs.⠀
SHOULD I VISIT REPLENISH OR GO TO AN EMERGENCY ROOM FOR HYDRATION THERAPY?
The difference between Replenish and the Emergency Room is cost and the comfort. The average cost of an ER visit for hydration therapy is close to $1000. The average wait time is 4 hours. For a fraction of the cost and time, our Emergency trained medical professionals will cater to your hydration needs in a spa like environment.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE THERAPY?
Typically your entire experience at Replenish will last 45min to 1hour.
ARE THERE ANY NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS?
Most of our therapies have no negative side effects. A few of the vitamins can cause a whole body warmth feeling while others can make you feel very relaxed. If you're getting a health therapy (Vitamin Drip or Immune Boost with Vitamin C) it is common to initially feel tired and sometimes flu like (often called the Herzheimer reaction or health detox), but this typically does not last long and will improve with each therapy. Our medical professionals will provide you with all the details of your therapy prior to administration. As always, we can be reached to answer any questions you may have following your therapy at 404.891.9248 or via email at hello@replenishIV.com.
