How Can IV Therapy Improve My Quality of Life?

By: Sara Proehl, RN


Intravenous (IV) therapy is a treatment that delivers essential vitamins directly into your bloodstream instead of through the digestive system. This form of therapy can improve your life in a number of ways – from increasing your energy levels to boosting your immune system.

Below, registered nurse Sara Proehl discusses how IV therapy works and who is an ideal candidate for treatment in Meridian, ID. Oasis MedSpa & IV Bar is dedicated to providing everyone with the personalized care and attention they deserve.

What is IV therapy?

Some people struggle to get the vitamins they need from food and oral supplements alone. This is often due to a poor diet, gastrointestinal issues, or nutrient absorption problems. Intravenous therapy bypasses the digestive system altogether and delivers nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

IV treatment is administered through a small catheter inserted into a vein in your arm. The catheter is connected to a bag of fluid that contains a mix of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that are essential for good health.

Who is an ideal candidate for IV therapy?

Busy professionals may not have time to prepare nutritious meals or get enough rest. Athletes need extra fluid and nutrients to replenish what they lose during strenuous workouts. People with chronic illnesses may need certain vitamins to manage their condition and symptoms. All these individuals and more can benefit from IV therapy.

Our unique treatment in Meridian, ID is beneficial for:

  • Those recovering from surgery
  • Athletes training for a competition
  • People suffering from a hangover
  • Anyone with a cold or the flu

Intravenous therapy may also slow down the aging process by boosting skin health and cellular regeneration.

What nutrients are included in IV therapy?

Oasis MedSpa & IV Bar provides a wide range of personalized IV cocktails. For example, our "Old Fashioned" is a mineral blend of vitamin C, amino acids, and a vitamin B complex. This treatment can shorten your recovery time after an injury while boosting athletic performance.

Registered nurse Sara Proehl can perform a thorough assessment to determine which vitamins and minerals are right for your needs. During this consultation, we ask about your medical history, current symptoms, and lifestyle habits. Understanding your unique situation helps us create a treatment plan that delivers the best possible results.
