What Is IV Infusion Therapy?
Intravenous therapy (IV) is a type of treatment that administers medications directly into a patient’s veins. Originally only conducted in hospitals for thousands of dollars, IV infusion is now a safe, affordable therapy that is tailored to each patient’s specific desires, and provides a wide range of health benefits.
By selecting your specific bag of fluids premixed with certain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that do everything from increasing energy to fighting wrinkles, you are in complete control of the benefits you receive. Because of its expansive benefits, IV therapy can be used to treat chronic diseases, improve overall wellness, and so much more.
How Does IV Therapy Work?
IV therapy uses a thin plastic tube and small needle that inserts a catheter into your vein, creating an easy, safe way to get nutrients into your system. By delivering the mixture directly into your veins, IV infusion therapy is the easiest and most effective way to fill your system with the nutrients it needs. Best of all, the process is easy, quick, and relaxing:
- With the help of our professionals, select one of our nine IV infusion premixes based on your symptoms and desires
- Let us disinfect the injection site (usually in your arm), locate a vein, and insert the IV.
- Relax while we adjust the rate of flow for your fluid and begin delivering nutrients into your system.
The process usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of fluid you will receive and the mixture you select. We will check back regularly throughout the process to ensure everything is delivered correctly and safely.
Why Is IV Infusion Therapy Better Than Oral Supplements?
For some chronic diseases, IV therapy is the only option. That said, it’s also the best treatment option to combat fatigue, oncoming sicknesses, and more. The most notable benefit IV infusion therapy provides that oral supplements cannot is immediate deliverance.
Even if you take a multivitamin that has the exact same nutrients as an IV mix, those nutrients must be absorbed through the digestive system before being delivered to the rest of your body, if they even make it through in the first place. When delivering the nutrients directly into your vein, you receive the benefits immediately while ensuring 100% of the nutrients make it to your bloodstream.
The best way to visualize this delivery system is thinking about commuting in a busy city. One traditional way to get to work could be biking to a bus stop, waiting for the bus to arrive, securing your bike on a rack, riding the bus to a stop near your office, and biking the rest of the way. Or, you could take a helicopter.
Sure, both methods will usually result in similar scenarios, but doesn’t the helicopter sound much better? If you have access to a helicopter, why risk the possibility that the bus breaks down or your bike gets a flat tire during your commute?
The same is true with IV infusion therapy and oral supplements. Why take the chance that your nutrients don’t make it to their destination when you can deliver them straight to your bloodstream without any hassle? Remove the unpredictability by scheduling your IV infusion therapy today to complement your daily supplements and healthy living.

Important Vitamins and Minerals in Our IV Therapy
Without even realizing it, you are likely missing out on vitamins and minerals that are necessary to your overall health and wellness. This may be causing you to feel fatigued, get sick more often, feel more stressed, and experience a number of other negative symptoms.
Here at LifeSeasons Medical Clinic, we offer IV infusion therapies that can reverse those deficiencies and help you live life to the fullest. By combining necessary vitamins and minerals that are often ignored into one deliverable solution, we make sure that you receive those nutrients when you need them. Keep these five vitamins and minerals in mind when selecting your IV infusion therapy.
There’s a reason we include a combination of B vitamins in nearly all of our solutions. Sufficient vitamin B intake does wonders for improving your energy and maintaining cell health. There are eight different B vitamins, each performing different functions for your cell metabolism. When combined with the other nutrients in our IV drip solutions, you can receive all of your necessary B vitamins and more.
Vitamin C is somewhat of a wonder nutrient and may aid in everything from lowering the risk of chronic diseases to improving iron absorption. Given its well-known ability to boost immunity and assist in the growth and repair of body tissues, vitamin C is a crucial addition to our Recovery & Performance, Immunity, and Inner Beauty IV therapies.
Amino acids are the building blocks of life. It goes without saying that we need a constant supply of amino acids to maintain optimal health. The problem is many people don’t get enough amino acids despite eating abundant amounts.
When this happens your body doesn’t have the raw materials required to synthesize compounds that build your body and keep you healthy. This IV is designed to begin to solve that problem. It is the fastest and most effective way to deliver amino acids directly into your circulation, boosting your reserves and sending them to your cells in high concentration.
Magnesium has a laundry list of health benefits that can boost your energy and performance when consumed sufficiently. Studies have shown that it is involved in more than 600 reactions in your body, including energy creation, protein formation, and muscle contraction. Its vast benefits are part of the reason it is included in four of our IV infusion solutions, including Recovery & Performance and Myers’ Cocktail.
Zinc plays a massive role in maintaining a healthy immune system and promoting an efficient digestion. If you find yourself feeling bloated more often than usual, zinc insufficiency could be the cause. Try our Alleviate solution, specifically created to minimize bloating and abdominal discomfort.
What Are IM Injections
While IV infusion therapy involves a complex combination of nutrients and minerals that improve your overall wellness, they aren’t the only way to deliver nutrients to your bloodstream quickly. Intramuscular injections, also referred to as IM injections, deliver the nutrients deep into muscle tissues, allowing them to reach your bloodstream faster and function better.
While the situation was likely different, you have almost certainly received an intramuscular injection before. If you’ve ever received a flu shot or another vaccine deep into your muscle, you already have experience with IM injections. The shots are administered in one of four locations — upper arm, hip, thigh, or buttocks.
Here at LifeSeasons Medical Clinic, we recognize the power that IM injections can have in delivering nutrients throughout your body. IM injections are usually simpler to administer than IV infusions and contain fewer ingredients, making them less expensive. We offer more than 10 different intramuscular injections for you to choose from, including:
Vitamin C — Boosts your immune system
Vitamin B12 — Improves your energy
Lipo-Mino Mix — Combination that assists with weight loss and appetite control
Relaxation Mix — Combination that aids with muscle tension, anxiety, and migraines
Alpha-Lipoic Acid — Optimizes blood glucose
You can view our full menu of IM injections below. If you have any questions about their benefits or functions, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
