IV Therapy Q & A


What is IV therapy?

IV, or intravenous, therapy involves the administration of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants through a needle placed into your vein. The procedure allows these nutrients to bypass your digestive tract, where many are not absorbed, and get to work right away at helping repair tissues, boost organ function, and improve your overall sense of wellbeing.  At the Dr. Avi Ishaaya Centers, IV therapy is known as Infuse Vitality (IV) therapy which is beneficial to both men and women.

What types of compounds are delivered via IV?

IV therapy may include vitamins, amino acids, anti-oxidants, and co-factors. Based on your needs and testing results, Dr. Avi will customize the right combination to target your deficiencies. In special combinations, these mixtures have been helpful with anxiety, adrenal and body fatigue, Fibromyalgia, low libido, inflammation, performance, and even Telomere health. IV infusions have, as well, been helpful in a multifaceted weight loss program. Certain IV infusions have also been known to be helpful with methylation, a process that helps with the flight-or-fight response, production of and recycling of Glutathione, detoxification of hormones, repair of DNA and cells, energy production, and the immune response.


What IV therapies are offered?

Each therapy is customized to your needs. Based on his experience and knowledge, Dr. Avi Ishaaya offers certain mixture to help with specific issues. However, a customized cocktail can be prepared for your veins to sip based on your unique deficiencies. 

What should I expect during IV therapy?

Once the IV needle is inserted into your vein, you relax as the contents drip into your bloodstream. You may nap, play on your phone, read, or watch a movie during this time. Most people find the process relaxing and not painful.


Who is a candidate for IV therapy?

If you feel fatigue or stressed, want to rid your body of toxins and boost your immunity, have reduced libido or hormones imbalance, need better overall performance, or are looking for assistance with weight loss, IV therapy may be helpful. Additionally, some patients suffering from conditions like asthma, migraines or insomnia, may benefit from IV therapy. Before IV therapy is administered, Dr. Avi and his team will carefully review your symptoms and complaints to determine if you are a candidate for the IV therapy. In many instances, Dr. Avi may suggest specialized blood tests such as micronutrient and hormone tests to optimize the IV therapy offered to you.
