IV Therapy

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a new, innovative treatment that gives patients access to the same fast, highly effective nutrient delivery system they would get at the hospital. Medical practitioners have long used IVs for their ability to deliver the body’s necessities directly into the bloodstream. 

The primary way your body gets the nutrients it needs to thrive is via food. You ingest food and it enters your digestive system. The issue, though, is that some of the nutrients in the food you eat are lost during the digestive process. 

Even if you take vitamins, some of their effectiveness is still compromised during digestion. With IV therapy, however, Dr. Macfield is able to deliver what your body needs directly into your bloodstream where your body has the easiest time absorbing it. 

IV therapy isn’t just for vitamins, either. It can also contain other essential nutrients — like amino acids and antioxidants — based on your body’s specific deficiencies and what you need to feel your best. 

Additionally, IV therapy can help you bounce back from dehydration quickly and easily, whether you’re dehydrated from an athletic event or an evening of drinking. 

Is IV therapy right for me?

Many health care providers recommend IV therapy to people who have medical conditions that get in the way of their body’s ability to absorb nutrients. But Dr. Macfield makes this treatment available to any of his patients who want an effective way to give their health a boost and to help themselves feel their best. 

Many people choose to get IV therapy to improve:

  • Focus
  • Sleep quality
  • Athletic performance and recovery
  • Detoxification
  • Energy levels
  • Their complexion
  • Their immune system

Whether you have a big presentation coming up at work, a vacation for which you don’t want to get sick, or a social event where you want to look and feel your best, Dr. Macfield offers IV therapy to help. 

How do I choose the right IV therapy?

If you’re interested in IV therapy, make an appointment with Dr. Macfield. He talks with you about your health and wellness goals and any symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Then, he tailors your IV therapy to you, ensuring the formula he uses meets your body’s unique needs.
