What is IV therapy?

IV (intravenous) therapy provides your body with essential vitamins, minerals, and powerful medications that go straight into your blood.

With IV therapy, your Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic provider puts a needle into a vein, usually one in your arm, then attaches it to a cannula (a slim, flexible length of tubing). Over 40 minutes or so, the IV infusion drips down the cannula into your blood.

This delivery method ensures you get the maximum benefit from your treatment, whereas taking oral supplements and medications can be wasteful.

The problem with anything you swallow is that it has to go through your digestive system. While your body can effectively extract the nutrients you need when you’re healthy, some still pass through into your stools. Even more go to waste if you have a gastrointestinal disorder.

With IV therapy, there’s also a far lower risk of side effects, which can happen when medicines travel through your digestive system.

Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic’s IV therapy offers multiple benefits covering a wide range of uses, from detoxification, relaxation, and immunity boosting to treating a variety of medical disorders.

IV therapy can improve your skin, hair, and nails, give you more energy, boost your mood, help you lose weight, and stop you from getting sick. You can also benefit from IV therapy’s anti-aging properties.

What do IV therapies contain?

IV therapies come in numerous blends designed to suit specific purposes. The main ingredients in IV therapies are:

Vitamins and minerals

Vitamins contain substances invaluable to health. Vitamin C is vital for immune system function, vitamin A for good eyesight, and vitamin D for healthy bones and nails.

B vitamins (of which there are many) have multiple purposes, including nervous system function and mood regulation. Minerals like iron, zinc, and magnesium are also essential.

Other micronutrients

Micronutrients are anything you need in tiny quantities. This includes amino acids, antioxidants, and substances like nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD).


Medications that can have adverse effects on your digestive system are safer and more effective when you use IV therapy. Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic uses biological drugs for conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and other autoimmune disorders.
