An Intravenous (IV) Drip
Most diseases begin at the cellular level, which is why—at the Gedroic Medical Institute—IV or Intravenous Therapy is a key component of many patient’s treatment protocols. IV therapy is a method of delivering key nutrients like vitamin C, lipids, and detoxification treatments directly into the bloodstream, flooding cells and helping to recover optimal cellular function.
During IV therapy, a small plastic tube is gently inserted into an arm vein using a needle. (Most patients report a feeling similar to the prick of a needle during a blood draw.) This tube is left in the arm during the IV treatment to allow necessary fluids, medicines, and supplements to be delivered directly into a patient’s bloodstream. This tube is removed after the IV session. Each IV session lasts an average of 2.5 hours, depending on each individual patient’s protocol and health needs.
During follow-up IV sessions, the same procedure is followed.
The state-of-the-art IV suite at the Gedroic Medical Institute is quiet and relaxing and is staffed by full-time registered nurses. Comfortable leather reclining chairs allow patients to work (Wi-Fi is available to patients), relax, or sleep while having IV therapy done.
