How does IV therapy work?
Vitamins, minerals, and homeopathic remedies administered with IV therapy are completely absorbed into the blood stream, making them immediately available to the body.
Dr. Marcantel will prepare an IV formula specifically for you based on your individual health needs. The entire treatment is done in the office and takes approximately one hour. A treatment regimen may require 1-4 IV sessions depending on the purposes of the therapy and the results the patient obtains.
The cost of treatment varies depending on the treatment plan and the types of solutions used.*
To learn more about IV therapy, please see Dr. Marcantel’s article “How IV Therapy Can Benefit YOU.”
*IV therapy should only be administered after a patient has given a complete medical history interview and has received a physical examination from the administering physician. Some lab tests may also be required before treatment. Individuals who are not established patients of Dr. Marcantel will need an initial admission to our services before receiving IV treatments.
