Why You Might Want to Make IV Infusion Therapy Part of Your Health Routine
Receiving essential nutrients intravenously is a common sight in hospital settings. However, it’s also becoming popular for individuals seeking to optimize their health and well-being. We’re happy to explain why.

Our goal at Calabasas Medicine Group is to provide optimal primary care services for adults in and around our community of Calabasas, California. We’re a concierge practice led by internal medicine specialists Sagi Jacob Cohen, MD, and Nathan Alyesh, MD.

Medically supervised IV (intravenous) infusion therapy perfectly complements our holistic, patient-centered approach to preventative health care and chronic disease management. But what exactly is IV infusion therapy, and why might you want to make it part of your health routine? We can answer that.

Understanding IV infusion therapy

This therapy involves administering vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other vital nutrients directly into the bloodstream via an intravenous drip. Bypassing the digestive system, which can sometimes limit nutrient absorption, delivers a high concentration of nutrients directly to your cells while ensuring maximum absorption and effectiveness.

Reasons to consider IV infusion therapy

There are many reasons your Calabasas Medicine Group provider may recommend IV infusion therapy, which has many benefits:

1. Enhanced nutrient absorption

Many individuals suffer from nutrient deficiencies due to poor diet, malabsorption issues, or increased nutrient demands.

IV infusion therapy ensures optimal absorption by sidestepping the digestive tract. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or those seeking to address specific deficiencies.

Before recommending IV infusion therapy, your Calabasas Medicine provider will complete a physical exam and likely recommend diagnostic lab tests. These studies allow us to assess your current health and nutrition status and ensure you aren’t experiencing a condition that affects your ability to absorb fluids, such as chronic kidney disease.

2. Quick and adequate hydration

Dehydration can significantly impact your overall health and well-being, leading to fatigue, headaches, and decreased cognitive function. 

IV hydration therapy delivers fluids directly into the bloodstream, rapidly rehydrating the body and replenishing electrolytes lost through sweating, illness, or excessive alcohol consumption.

Whether recovering from a hangover or seeking to boost your energy levels, IV hydration therapy can provide quick and effective relief.

3. Immune system support

A robust immune system is crucial for defending against illness and maintaining overall health.

IV infusion therapy can bolster your immune system by delivering a powerful blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that support immune function and enhance your body's natural defenses.

Whether you're looking to prevent illness during cold and flu season or support your immune system during times of stress, IV therapy can provide the support your body needs.

4. Energy boost and recovery

In today's fast-paced world, many individuals struggle with low energy levels and chronic fatigue.

IV infusion therapy offers a solution by delivering a potent blend of vitamins, such as B-complex and vitamin C, essential for energy production and cellular function.

Whether you're an athlete looking to optimize performance or you’re simply seeking a natural energy boost, IV therapy can help you feel revitalized and rejuvenated.

5. Customizable treatment

One of the key benefits of the medically supervised IV infusion therapy at Calabasas Medicine Group is our ability to customize the treatment to meet your specific needs.

Whether you’re concerned about addressing certain health issues, optimizing athletic performance, or enhancing your overall well-being, we can tailor the infusion to deliver the nutrients your body needs most.

The possibilities are endless, from vitamin drips targeting skin health to specialized formulations for detoxification, weight loss, and preventing migraines or other health conditions.
