    • What IV package should I get?
      While we do have an extensive therapy treatment list, our critical care nurses are trained to take a detailed assessment. You and the nurse can choose the best treatment suited for you based on that assessment.
    • How long does home IV therapy take?

    • Do you offer a banana bag and why are some treatments yellow?

      The b-complex is what makes the IV therapy treatment yellow.

      A banana bag is a general term used in hospitals for a saline bag that has different vitamins and ingredients. Each “banana bag” in terms of vitamins can be different.

    • How often should I get IV therapy?
      For a healthy person with no medical problems, we suggest every two weeks. This time frame for treatment would be medically appropriate. In some situations there are reasons to get them more frequently. This can be discussed with your critical care nurse.
    • I’m a difficult stick, will you be able to get an IV on me?
      Have no fear! We only use critical care nurses, which means they are the very best in their field and at starting IV’s.

    • Will you treat a hospice patient?
      We usually can, but this would be based on an assessment done by one of our critical care nurses and sometimes one of our medical providers.
    • Do you access ports?
      We do not access ports at this time.
    • Why is IV therapy different from drinking a sports drink or water?
      IV vitamin therapy is a much more efficient way of hydrating and replenishing lost nutrients compared to drinking a sports drink . IV hydration therapy bypasses the gastrointestinal tract allowing you to absorb more of the vitamins and fluid. Sometimes your liver and kidneys can siphon out some of the precious minerals and vitamins you need, due to your body not being able to absorb naturally. With an IV, your body can absorb all it needs much quicker, making you feel better that much faster!
    • What is a myers cocktail?
      The original Myers cocktail is a treatment by Dr John Myers over 50 years ago. These days every company has their own version and many are not the same. In fact most are not the same as the original therapy. Our Myers is built out to be the safest and best therapy for those wanting to feel good with a boost to their system. Try our Myers 2.0
    • Why do you only use critical care nurses?
      We only want the best for our patients, so we hand pick and hire the best. Critical Care nurses are apprised of ICU and Emergency room nurses. These are among the highest trained nurses with the best critical thinking skills. They have a greater understanding of physiology and pathophysiology so they can assist you when you need it most.
