IV Therapy

IV (intravenous) therapy involves delivering fluids, vitamins, medications, or other substances directly into the bloodstream through a vein. It’s a faster and more efficient way to deliver these substances compared to oral intake.

Pros: Provides quick delivery of hydration, electrolytes, and nutrients, beneficial for dehydration, nutrient deficiencies, or certain medical conditions.

Cons: Can be expensive, requires a medical professional for administration, and may cause minor discomfort like soreness at the IV insertion site.

Alternatives: Oral hydration and medications can be suitable options when IV therapy isn’t necessary.

Recovery Time: There’s no downtime after IV therapy; however, some monitoring might be needed depending on the purpose.

Disclaimer: IV therapy should be administered by a qualified medical professional.
