We provide intravenous (IV) infusion therapies as part of our health and wellness treatments. Always consult your physician before beginning any therapy program.
Understanding Intravenous (IV) Infusion Therapy
Among the different treatments we offer at BIX Homes & Wellness is intravenous (IV) infusion therapy which involves injecting different nutrients, vitamins, minerals or antioxidants directly into the bloodstream to achieve their maximum benefit. By entering the body at the cellular level, IV therapy bypasses the liver, which results in greater absorption and utilization of the nutrients.
People also tend to feel the effects of IV therapy faster than they would by taking the same nutrients in supplement form. It can be more effective than taking medications orally because stomach acids often destroy them. Furthermore, when people become sick with a complex disease, they often have trouble eating and therefore, cannot take medications orally.
How Is IV Infusion Therapy Administered?
Infusion therapy is administered through a sterile catheter that is inserted into a vein and secured. In the past, this kind of treatment was only available in hospitals. While the IVs used during infusion therapy are the same type of equipment you would see in a hospital, Bix Homes and Wellness provides a calming and refreshing atmosphere in their offices in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania instead of a more clinical setting. For this reason, we have used infusion therapy to treat a variety of conditions successfully.
What Conditions Does Infusion Therapy Treat?
- Infusion therapy is helpful for treating different conditions such as inflammation and delivering nutrients to boost your overall immune system. By restoring many of your body’s needed vitamins, infusion therapy can raise your overall energy level.
- Some regimens also treat chronic pain, upper respiratory infections such as the common cold and the flu, fatigue, migraine headaches, depression anxiety, asthma, seasonal allergies, and many other ailments. It can also help to detox heavy minerals from your blood.
How Many Treatments Will I Require?
- The response to IV infusion therapy varies from individual to individual. Generally, most patients require a few treatments. The number of treatments depends on the medication and the severity of the condition being treated. While some people will respond immediately, many patients do not receive the full benefit until after undergoing several treatments.
- It is important to keep in mind that IV infusion therapy is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. At BIX Homes and Wellness, we always adjust our medications to the individual in order to maximize their benefits. For instance, dosage can vary based on a patient’s weight and whether he or she has had previous infusions and the response to those infusions.
Will IV Infusion Therapy Work for You?
If you deal with chronic pain, inflammation, migraines, or other ailments that have not responded to oral medication or other traditional treatments, intravenous infusion therapy may be the solution to your problems. It’s simple to administer and painless. Before we get started, we conduct an initial evaluation to see if you’re a good candidate for IV infusion therapy.
One of the great things about infusion therapy is that many of our patients leave our office feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and continue to experience the benefits of the therapy long after the treatment. They also do not suffer any harmful side effects. Through IV infusion therapy, our patients receive the vitamins minerals and other nutrients they need in the most effective way possible.
