IV Therapy Q & A

Why is IV therapy beneficial for my health?

IV therapy delivers vital nutrients and natural medicines directly into your vein. As a result, the full dose quickly reaches cells throughout your body.

By comparison, you seldom get the full dose when taking oral supplements, and it takes significantly longer to reach your bloodstream.

Anything that travels through your stomach and small intestine face obstacles that prevent it from being absorbed. For example, you may lack stomach acid or digestive enzymes or have an inflamed and damaged small intestine.

When would I need IV therapy?

You may need IV therapy to boost your energy, quickly rehydrate, or eliminate nutritional deficiencies. You can eat a healthy diet and still end up with nutritional deficits because your body uses more nutrients than usual when you’re under physical or emotional stress.

For example, intense athletic training, chronic health conditions, anxiety, allergies, and recurrent infections can all rapidly deplete nutrients and cause a deficiency.

IV therapy helps athletes recover and prepare for competition. It’s also exceptionally beneficial for healing and recovering from asthma, Lyme disease, infertility, and many other conditions, including:

Autoimmune Disorders

High doses of nutrients like B vitamins and vitamin C, minerals, and anti-inflammatory herbs strengthen your immune system.


Progressive Medical Center works with patients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, providing customized IV therapy to offset toxic side effects and support your overall health.

Chelation therapy

Chelation therapy removes heavy metals from your body. After eliminating heavy metals like lead and mercury, Progressive Medical Center administers another IV therapy to replace nutrients.

Neurological conditions

IV infusions containing glutathione, one of your body’s primary antioxidants, help improve motor function in people with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease.


Magnesium administered through an IV infusion reduces lung inflammation associated with asthma.

Diabetic neuropathy

When high blood sugar damages peripheral nerves, patients lose sensation in their feet. IV therapy containing alpha-lipoic acid may restore feeling, especially when combined with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.


An IV infusion containing amino acids rebuilds and restores muscles, which, in turn, may ease the muscle pain of fibromyalgia.
