- Upon arrival, a healthcare provider will quickly review your medical history and obtain your basic vital signs.

Do I need to see Indy Vital’s doctor on consultation prior to my IV drip infusion?

When you visit us for an IV drip infusion, you may choose to have a full consultation with our board-certified physician or with our nurse practitioner. If you are a healthy individual and you have chosen which infusion you would like to have; you may opt to proceed to the intravenous therapy without having a doctor’s consultation. Regardless of your decision, all infusions are done under the supervision of our physicians, nurses and medical staff.

 

When do I need to see a doctor prior to the IV infusion therapy?

We especially indicate consultation with our physician in case you have a chronic medical condition that may require modifications to the IV Drip Therapy. In this case, the physician will obtain a detailed medical history and vital signs and proceed to recommend what would be the best IV drip therapy for you. Our physician consultation cost is included with the IV drip therapy.

 

Why should I receive intravenous drip therapy?

There are several reasons why one would benefit from intravenous drip infusions. Depending on your needs, you may want to have an infusion to reduce stress, boost your metabolism, detox, improve sleep or recover from extraneous exercise activity. We also have formulas that will help you recover from a hangover.

 

What are the usual components of the intravenous drip infusion?

Most of our infusions contain a saline solution that is isotonic to plasma plus additional electrolytes, minerals, essential nutrients, vitamins and peptides/amino acids that may be added.

 

What is the advantage of receiving a nutrient or medication orally versus using intravenous drip therapy?

The great advantage of receiving intravenous compounds is that there is no doubt they will get into your body, circulation and cells. When the oral route is used for vitamins, for example, the vitamin you ingested may not be absorbed 100%. Several individuals have what we call a leaky gut.

 

What is the leaky gut?

The lining of the intestine forms a tight barrier that controls what gets absorbed into the bloodstream. Several conditions may cause the lining of the gut to become inflamed allowing partially digested food, toxins and bacteria to penetrate the tissue beneath the lining of the intestine. The absorption of food and nutrients as well as medications may be compromised in these circumstances. These patient’s benefit the most from intravenous drip therapy.

 

How long does it take to receive the intravenous drip therapy?

The infusion takes about 45 to 60 minutes. Upon your arrival, we will immediately start obtaining a quick medical history and vital signs that be followed by the insertion of an IV by one of our healthcare providers. The entire process is supervised by our medical team which includes a nurse practitioner and or a medical doctor. Our goal is that your entire stay with us for the IV infusion is less than 2 hours.

 

How frequently can I get intravenous infusions?

It depends on the reason for your infusion but in general we do not recommend that you take more than two infusions a week, in other words, one infusion every 3 days.

 

Will I lose weight with the use of IV drip therapy?

At Indy Vital we have an IV drip solution especially designed for weight loss; it’s called VitaThin. How does it work? While limiting calories and keeping a workout regimen, one may feel a drop-in energy and stamina. Optimizing hydration, electrolytes and vitamins will help you continue to adhere to the dietary and exercise regimen. When taking oral vitamins only 15 to 25% get absorbed. The use of intravenous vitamin therapy will maximize the delivery of this compounds directly into your cells. By boosting your adrenal gland and improving your sleep, we believe that our IV drip solutions may help you lose weight.

 

What are the costs associated with the IV drip therapy?

The cost will vary depending on the components of the IV drip you had selected or that our physician recommends you. The cost varies from a basic IV hydration for $100 to the most complex infusion at $350 

 

Indy Athletic Room

At Indy Vital, we understand the importance of the competitive athlete in preventing and treating dehydration and exercise-associated muscle cramps, as they are linked to a decline in athletic performance.

Why does IV drip therapy help? During exercise activity, heat is produced by the contraction of multiple muscles. This heat is then transferred to the circulatory system and subsequently dissipates to the environment by activation of the capillary supplying the skin. Vaporization of sweat accounts for 80% of heat loss in hot, dry atmospheric conditions. This loss of water can cause a state of dehydration. 

Dehydration may develop producing deleterious effects such as a decrease in my aerobic capacity, decrease in anaerobic capacity followed by cognitive function decline and ultimately electrolyte disturbances that may progress and if severe enough can cause death.

At our facility, we can provide you with intravenous drip therapy before and or after the competition or athletic training. In addition to intravenous fluid hydration, you could opt to have our IV energy for athletes IV drip therapy. Bellow the composition of our athletic IV drip:

IV Energy for Athletes: the goal is to provide professional and non-professional athletes with a boost of energy and improve athletic performance and or recovery. This IV therapy composition is a mix of electrolytes, antioxidants, essential minerals, and vitamins that will hydrate muscle and increase body performance.

Composition: 1.5L (before or after the competition) of isotonic normal saline with added ascorbic acid, vitamin B complexes including B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12, calcium, magnesium, L-carnitine, glutathione, taurine, multitrace-5 Zinc, copper, chromium, selenium.
