IV Therapy services offered in Charleston, SC

Even when you eat a healthy, varied diet, your body might not extract all the nutrients you need from your food. At Palmetto Health, in Charleston, South Carolina, Dr. Lominchar provides a solution with IV (intravenous) therapy. This treatment bypasses your digestive system and directly delivers the required nutrients into your blood. To discover which IV therapy infusion could benefit your health, call Palmetto Health today or use the online form to arrange a consultation.

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy provides you with beneficial nutrients like vitamins and minerals by delivering them directly into your bloodstream through an intravenous needle in an arm vein.

Oral supplements are a popular way of boosting health and vitality and are often very helpful, but IV therapy can be even better. That’s because everything goes into your blood without having to get through your digestive system first.

The digestive process involves extensive lengths of the intestine, various organs, and the stomach. Even in people with the healthiest digestive systems, some nutrients will likely be lost along the way. You could lose a lot more if you have a disorder like leaky gut or Crohn’s disease.

IV therapy overcomes these problems. Nothing goes to waste as the nutrients go straight into your blood, so you get the full benefit of your treatment.

When might I benefit from IV therapy?

You could benefit from IV therapy if your immune system needs a boost or you suffer from fatigue (excessive tiredness and lack of energy). Many people find IV therapy helps them with chronic health problems, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)

IV therapy also helps you detoxify and is a fast way to rehydrate your body. Regular IV therapy sessions could slow down aging and help you lose weight.

What does having IV therapy involve?

IV therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that most people find relaxing. You might experience a moment of discomfort when the IV needle goes into your vein, but no pain. Then you sit in a comfortable chair for up to an hour while the infusion of vitamins and minerals slowly drips into your blood.

If you suffer from a problem like hyperalgesia (where your nerves are excessively sensitive) or you simply don’t like needles, Dr. Lominchar can provide you with an anesthetic cream to numb the skin before inserting the needle.

IV therapy is safe and effective when you visit an expert like Dr. Lominchar for your treatment. If you’d like to learn more about how IV therapy could benefit you, call Palmetto Health today or book an appointment using the online scheduling facility.
