The Many Benefits of IV Therapy
Whether you have a cold or chronic illness, or you simply need a boost of energy, IV therapy provides results. Keep reading to learn why this approach offers numerous benefits that go above and beyond oral supplements.

Most people know that you need the right combination of vitamins and minerals to feel your best, look your best, and maintain your health and wellness. However, getting that perfect balance can be easier said than done.

At Desert Moon Wellness in Las Vegas, Nevada, certified nurse practitioner Amy Bass, APRN, NP-C, relies on IV therapy to deliver needed nutrients to her patients. This treatment helps you avoid the hassle of swallowing a handful of supplements and ensures you get precisely what you need where you need it most — your cells.

Here’s what you should know about the benefits of IV therapy.

IV therapy gets right to the source

As the name suggests, IV therapy involves an intravenous (IV) drip to deliver specific nutrients directly into your bloodstream. 

Unlike traditional oral supplements taken by mouth, the IV approach bypasses your digestive system. Why does that matter? Because digestion breaks down an oral supplement, meaning you only get a fraction of the nutrients it contains by the time your body processes it. 

Because IV doesn’t require digestion, you get a full dose of nutrients that reach your cells immediately.

IV therapy provides personalized treatment options

Not only does IV therapy give you a full dose of nutrients, but it’s created just for you and your individual needs — and there’s no guesswork involved.

Desert Moon Wellness helps you avoid the confusion of the supplement aisle, ensuring you get only the vitamins and minerals you need for optimal health and wellness. IV therapies can help with:

  • Detoxification
  • Slowing the effects of aging
  • Metabolism support
  • Immunity boosting
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Hangover recovery

On top of that, Desert Moon Wellness uses IV therapy to treat numerous health conditions, ranging from menstrual cramps and sports injuries to chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, and chronic kidney disease. 

IV therapy comes with few, if any, side effects

It’s tough to beat a safe and effective treatment that comes with few risks or side effects, and that’s just what you get with IV therapy. 

Treatments usually take between 60 and 90 minutes. Once we gently insert the IV needle, you relax comfortably throughout the appointment, napping, reading, or watching TV. 

In most cases, people report feeling refreshed and energized after their treatment. Any tenderness or redness at the IV site should fade within a day or two.
