IV Therapy Q & A
What is IV therapy?
Intravenous therapy is a specialty treatment that delivers much-needed fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream to restore levels.
Despite your best efforts, your body may not be getting all the nutrients from the food you eat or the supplements you take.
A nutrient deficiency means your body might not be working at its best, leaving you more vulnerable to illness and fatigue.
To help ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs for good health, Dr. Dimowo offers IV therapy. By delivering fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream, and bypassing your digestive system, it guarantees that your body gets what it needs fast.
Am I a good candidate for IV therapy?
Dr. Dimowo determines if you’re a good candidate for IV therapy during a consultation. You may benefit from IV therapy to:
Recharge your system
Enhance energy levels and productivity
Improve overall hydration
Offer relief from jet lag
Improve immune health
Resolve hangover symptoms
Support skin health
Dr. Dimowo offers the Myers’ cocktail, which contains a blend of essential nutrients, including the B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. He also creates customized IV therapy to more accurately meet your nutritional and health needs.
What can I expect during IV therapy?
Dr. Dimowo conducts IV therapy at the office. After it’s been determined that you would benefit from IV therapy, Dr. Dimowo creates your customized nutrient blend for therapy. He then inserts the IV catheter into your arm and attaches it to your IV bag and opens the line.
The length of your IV therapy may depend on your fluid and nutrient needs. Dr. Dimowo reviews your treatment with you before you get started so you know what to expect.
Because the nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream, you should notice the effects immediately.
What is a ketamine infusion?
Dr. Dimowo also offers ketamine infusions. Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic since the 1960s. Researchers are now finding the ketamine helps improve mental health conditions such as:
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
It works by increasing growth of the neural transmitters in your brain, which helps improve mood and has an almost immediate effect. Dr. Dimowo also uses ketamine infusions to help manage fibromyalgia and other chronic neuropathic pain.
