IV vitamin therapies are essentially a type of nutritional supplementation that delivers nutrients to the body in a very efficient manner. Instead of taking capsules, powders, tablets, transdermal patches, or liposomal liquids, the nutritional needs are met intravenously via infusion - that is, directly into the bloodstream.
What is contained in an IV vitamin infusion?
IV vitamin therapies are highly customizable and can be tailored to the specific needs of each client. A variety of nutrients, such as all the B vitamins, glutathione, zinc, magnesium, potassium, and other electrolytes, NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), can be included.
Large doses of vitamin C (greater than any amount of chewable tablets) can also be infused, and amino acids and other minerals can be used in various combinations depending on the client’s needs. Iron can also be administered as an IV infusion (although must be done on its own and not mixed with other nutrients).
What are the advantages of IV vitamin therapies?
IV infusions can help with a wide range of issues, from low energy to dehydration, as well as supporting the immune system and benefiting the skin. They're also an excellent way to quickly boost nutrient levels that may be deficient.
IV Iron is an excellent way to increase low iron levels and can safely bring your levels back up quickly, which means your fatigue and exhaustion will pass much sooner.
Furthermore, unlike oral supplements, IV infusions do not cause constipation. This is because the IV is completely absorbed, unlike many iron tablets. This constipation is caused by unabsorbed iron from iron tablets, which means you're not only not getting the dose you need, but it's also causing another problem.
If you can expand your operations while remaining open every day, you could earn more than $1 million in annual revenue and around $153,000 in profit. This could quickly expand to 25 daily clients.
With such success, you could reinvest in your city or state, or you could franchise. Your profit potential will rise in lockstep with the growth of your brand.
How does a clinic become qualified to provide IV vitamin therapies?
A medical doctor
A medical doctor must be present to prescribe the nutrients to provide IV nutrition.
Protocols for adhering to safety standards
All IV nutrients must be stored according to safety standards (some must be stored in the refrigerator, while others can be stored at room temperature but not in direct sunlight or heat.
The ideal treatment environment
A comfortable room where you provide IV vitamin therapy in peace is always recommended - the more relaxed and comfortable the clients are, the more relaxed their veins are, and the faster the IV vitamin therapy will go.
Planning for Adverse Reactions
It is critical that the clinic has adequate facilities in case of an adverse reaction. Aside from items such as the tourniquet, almost all the equipment used in an IV is single-use and should never be reused.
Appropriate training for employees who administer wellness infusions
Aside from medical doctors, an appropriately trained registered nurse or an endorsed enrolled nurse (an enrolled nurse who has undergone additional training in the administration of medications) will be able to administer IV nutrition.
It is also critical that they have received additional training in IV or parental nutrition so that they understand exactly what they are doing, how to safely administer it (what can be mixed with other nutrients, what rate or speed the IV should be given, and so on), and how to identify early signs of an adverse reaction and how to deal with it appropriately.
A background in nutrition is also advantageous because it allows the practitioner to truly understand and utilize the nutrients in the most effective way.
