IV Therapy Q&A

Can IV therapy boost my energy levels?

Yes. IV therapy addresses various acute ailments, including exhaustion and jet lag. As a member of Centeno Health’s concierge medicine program, you can request IV therapy through house calls, as long as you live in the Miami area. Your provider then visits your home, office, or wherever is most convenient to receive treatment.

During IV therapy, your Centeno Health provider inserts a small needle into a vein in your arm. The needle is attached to a catheter connected to an IV bag filled with a nutrient-rich solution. The nutrients slowly drip into your bloodstream over a 45-60 minute period, while you sit or lie down.

At the end of your IV therapy session, your provider removes the needle, bandages your arm, and provides instructions on how to go about your day. 

What health problems might benefit from IV therapy?

Centeno Health uses IV therapy to treat various medical issues, including:

  • Dehydration
  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Jet lag
  • Hangovers
  • Malnutrition
  • Low immunity
  • Malnutrition
  • Stress and anxiety

You don’t have to be sick or experiencing symptoms to benefit from IV therapy. Some people schedule regular IV sessions to support their immune systems and remove toxins and free radicals from their bodies. 

Are vitamin injections the same as IV therapy?

Vitamin injections and IV therapy use similar treatment approaches, but they aren’t the same thing.


Vitamin injections

A vitamin injection is a vitamin-rich solution that’s administered with a syringe, similar to an immunization. The vitamin solution enters your bloodstream and gives you a quick boost. For example, if you have low vitamin D levels, Centeno Health might recommend a vitamin D injection to restore your levels to balance.


IV therapy

IV therapy lets you receive higher doses of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients over an extended period. Centeno Health might recommend IV therapy if you have more than one health goal you’re trying to achieve, such as increased energy and weight loss or improved immunity and smoother, healthier skin.

Why is IV therapy better than taking nutritional supplements orally?

IV therapy is better than taking nutritional supplements orally because when vitamins and minerals are administered intravenously, they bypass your digestive system. That means your body gets a higher concentration of nutrients. 

When you take oral supplements, your body only gets about 50% of the nutrients. But with IV therapy, that number jumps to 90%. 

Is IV therapy safe?

IV therapy is safe and typically well-tolerated. You might have mild swelling or bruising at the IV insertion site, but these symptoms should improve within 24-48 hours.
