IV Therapy FAQs

Why should I consider an IV drip?

Oral supplements must travel through your stomach and be absorbed by your small intestine before they reach your bloodstream. Many problems along the way can limit the amount of nutrients that actually get into your bloodstream and are delivered to cells throughout your body.

For example, if you have inflammatory bowel disease, low stomach acid, or don’t produce enough digestive enzymes, your body can’t properly absorb nutrients.

Another roadblock is that your small intestine can only absorb a limited amount of some nutrients. You could take a mega-dose of nutrients orally, but only a small percentage would make it to your cells.

When your nutrients are administered intravenously (IV), they bypass digestion and absorption issues, and you get 100% of the dose delivered. Not only that, but your therapeutic dose is quickly distributed to cells that need the nutrition to boost your energy and improve your well being.

How does IV Therapy improve my health?

Nutritional IV therapy improves your health by giving you the nutrients your body must have to produce energy, build proteins, heal, keep your nerves and muscles working, and maintain every system in your body.

You can eat healthy foods and still develop a nutritional deficiency if you’re under any physical or emotional stress. Your body uses more nutrients when you’re stressed, whether the stress is due to chronic pain, acute or chronic illness, injury, overtraining, or anxiety.

An IV infusion can:

  • Increase energy
  • Boost metabolism
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Improve healing and relieve pain
  • Hydrate your body
  • Enhance sport performance
  • Fight free radicals

Depending on the nutritional IV infusion you use, it may also balance electrolytes, nourish your skin, and help detoxify your body.

What types of IV drips are available?

Before recommending nutritional IV therapy, Dr. Johnston assesses your medical history, performs a physical exam, and asks questions to determine your nutritional status. Your IV drip can be customized or you can choose one from our drip menu that may be perfect for your health.

Our IV drips are formulated to meet precise health needs. For example, they may target athletes or your immune system, contain concentrated antioxidants, or supply a good overall mix of nutrients.

If your energy is low, you need help with healing, or you’d like to learn if you have a nutrient deficiency, call the Osteopathic Wellness Center or book an appointment online.

Who administers the IV?

All treatments are given by a Registered Nurse, Physician Assistant, or Board Certified Physician.

How long does an IV session take?

In general, your IV should take between 30 minutes to one hour. The nurse will administer your drip at a safe and comfortable rate. You can spend your time relaxing, reading, listening to music, or working on your tablet or laptop device. 

Will it hurt to have an IV placed?

Our staff is well trained to easily find good veins; most people will barely feel the IV placement. At the most, you may feel a slight pinprick.

Are there side effects of IV Therapy?

Side effects rarely happen, if at all. If they do they are usually minor and short lived such as bruising or bleeding at IV site, warming or cooling sensation in arm during your infusion, tasting or smelling vitamins throughout your infusion. Having a vitamin smell in your urine 24 – 48 hours after infusion administration. Our staff are trained to manage all side effects that you may experience.

How often should I get an IV?

This depends on each individual’s needs and and/or ailment to be treated. For best results, we recommend monthly drips with an additional drip in that month if you may be feeling run down, under the weather, preparing for travel or a marathon, etc. Some of the treatments can be a quick fix and are only needed when the ailment is active ie: migraine, illness, post-workout or travel fatigue. Osteopathic Wellness offers serveral membership packages. We suggest speaking to the Registered Nurse or Physician on site to collaborate what would be best to meet your needs.

How soon will I feel the effects?

Typically you will feel the effects same day of treatment. Full absorption or the vitamins administered can take up to 24 hours.

Is IV Therapy safe?

Yes, we only use reputable and accredited compounding pharmacies for our ingredients. These infusions are only administered and monitored by a licensed Registered Nurse or Board Certified physician with skilled IV experience.

Water soluble vitamins cannot be stored in the body and must be replenished every day. The B complex plays many important roles in the body.

B1 (thiamine)

B1 (thiamine), a key ingredient in the vitamin B complex, is sometimes called an “anti-stress” vitamin as it helps to ensure a healthy nervous system and improve the body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions. B1 also enhances the cardiovascular functioning in the body. This vitamin is also needed to break down carbohydrates, fats and proteins from your diet to be converted into energy. B1 is critical for the growth, development and function of all the cells in the body. It was named B1 because it was the first B vitamin discovered.

B2 (riboflavin)

In addition to producing energy for the body, vitamin B2 (riboflavin) works as an antioxidant, fighting damaging particles in the body known as free radicals that may contribute to the aging process, as well as a number of health conditions, such as heart disease and cancer. Riboflavin is also needed to help the body change vitamin B6 and folate into forms it can use. It is also important for growth and red blood cell production. B2 also helps to keep the eyes, nervous system and skin healthy. 

B3 (niacin)

B3 (niacin) helps the body make various sex and stress-related hormones. B3 is important for maintaining a healthy metabolism and cardiovascular system. B3 helps with brain function, healthy skin production, and has been shown to improve circulation and suppress inflammation. 

B5 (dexpanthenol)

B5 has also been shown to help prevent nerve damage and pain, heart failure, reduce high blood pressure, balance blood sugar and reduce bad cholesterol.

B6 (pyridoxine)

B6 (pyridoxine), along with the rest of the B Complex, play an important role in many body functions. B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters and helps in maintaining a healthy nervous system and normal brain development. The B vitamins and B6 help support adrenal function, liver function, eye health, support calm, energy expenditure, and blood flow. In addition, your body needs B6 to in order to absorb vitamin B12 and to make red blood cells and cells of the immune system. 

B7 (biotin)

B7 (biotin) helps the body metabolize fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids. Many people take supplements containing biotin to help the health of their nails, skin and hair.

B12 (methylocabalamin)

Vitamin B12 (methylocabalamin) is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Some people have trouble absorbing Vitamin B12 from food and dietary supplements. A Vitamin B12 deficiency can manifest as chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, and chronic stress. Symptoms associated with B12 Deficiencies have also included pale or jaundiced skin, weakness or fatigue, sensations of pins and needles, disturbed vision, changes to mobility (balance and coordination, dizziness), mouth ulcers and mood changes. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant. Vitamin C is important for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth. Included among the many benefits of Vitamin C are protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, eye disease, and even aging skin. 

Calcium EDTA

Calcium EDTA is a chelating agent that binds to and removes certain heavy metals from the body. It works by forming stable complexes with toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury, which are then excreted from the body via urine. This process helps reduce the concentration of toxic metals in the bloodstream and tissues, thereby preventing or alleviating the symptoms of heavy metal toxicity. 


Carnitine is a naturally occurring compound found in the body, primarily in skeletal muscle tissue. It plays a crucial role in energy metabolism by facilitating the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are converted into energy through a process called beta-oxidation. Carnitine is particularly important during periods of increased energy demand, such as exercise or fasting, as it helps to shuttle fatty acids into the mitochondria for energy production. Additionally, carnitine has been studied for its potential benefits in promoting cardiovascular health, supporting exercise performance, and improving recovery from exercise-induced muscle damage.


Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant found in every cell of the body. It’s often referred to as the body’s “master antioxidant” due to its critical role in neutralizing free radicals and preventing oxidative damage to cells and tissues. Glutathione also plays a key role in detoxification by helping to remove harmful substances such as toxins, heavy metals, and pollutants from the body. Additionally, glutathione supports immune function, promotes DNA repair, and contributes to various other physiological processes essential for overall health and well-being.

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme found in all living cells and is involved in numerous biological processes essential for energy metabolism, DNA repair, and cellular signaling. NAD+ functions primarily as a cofactor for enzymes that participate in redox reactions, facilitating the transfer of electrons between molecules in metabolic pathways. Additionally, NAD+ is involved in various cellular processes, including DNA repair, gene expression, and regulation of cell survival pathways. NAD+ levels naturally decline with age and are influenced by factors such as stress, poor diet, and certain health conditions. 


Phosphatidylcholine is a type of phospholipid, which is a class of lipids that are essential components of cell membranes. Phosphatidylcholine is particularly abundant in cell membranes, especially in the brain and liver. It consists of a choline molecule, a phosphate group, and two fatty acid chains. Phosphatidylcholine plays several important roles in the body, including maintaining the structural integrity and fluidity of cell membranes, facilitating cell signaling processes, and aiding in the transportation of fats and cholesterol. Additionally, choline, one of the components of phosphatidylcholine, is a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in memory, muscle control, and other functions.

Amino Acids


One of the biggest benefits of L-arginine is its ability to improve blood flow and circulation. L-arginine is converted into nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to open wider. Benefits of arginine in cardiovascular and overall health may include: lowering blood pressure; reducing blood stickiness in patients with high cholesterol; improving blood flow in those with significant coronary artery disease; reducing symptoms associated with claudication (pain, usually in the extremities due to a lack of blood flow); relieving congestive heart failure and improved stamina; stabilizing angina; improving the painful condition known as Raynaud’s phenomenon (fingers become pale, occasionally turn blue in cold temperatures); and reversing impotence. 


L-Cystine is a basic building block of glutathione, which is known as “the body’s master antioxidant.” N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), is the form found in supplements and is valued for its ability to increase glutathione levels in the body, which is extremely important for lung function, brain function and liver detoxification. 


According to research, glycine can help lower symptoms in individuals with ulcers, arthritis, leaky gut syndrome, diabetes, kidney and heart failure, neurobehavioral disorders, chronic fatigue, sleep disorders, and certain cancers. This versatile amino acid also supports anti-aging treatments. 


L-lysine is important in the creation of carnitine, which converts fatty acids into energy and also lowers cholesterol levels. L-lysine plays a role in calcium absorption and helps in the formation of collagen. L-lysine has been touted to help clear acne, combat lines and wrinkles, fight hair loss, improve bone health and may help to treat cold sores. 


MIC stands for the ingredients Methionine, Inositol and Choline. Methionine, is a lipotropic amino acid, helping the breakdown the fat during metabolism in the body. It helps reduce fat and lower cholesterol. Inositol plays a role in hair growth, helps reduce cholesterol levels, and prevents hardening of the arteries, as well as aids in the metabolism of fat and cholesterol. Choline is an essential nutrient that is often grouped with the B vitamins. Choline plays a vital role in lipid metabolism & aids in fighting against fat deposits. 

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a derivative of the amino acid cysteine and is known for its potent antioxidant properties. It plays a crucial role in supporting the production of glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant, which helps to neutralize free radicals and protect cells from oxidative stress and damage. NAC is commonly used as a supplement to support respiratory health, as it can help thin mucus and make it easier to expel, making it beneficial for conditions such as chronic bronchitis, COPD, and cystic fibrosis. Additionally, NAC has been studied for its potential benefits in detoxification, liver health, mental health conditions such as depression and bipolar disorder, and protecting against acetaminophen (paracetamol) toxicity.


Taurine is known as a conditionally essential amino acid; those with disease states or aging bodies often cannot produce an optimal amount of taurine. It aids in promoting cardiovascular health, insulin sensitivity, electrolyte balance, hearing function, and immune modulation. Taurine has been shown to help fight obesity, and is essential in controlling diabetes. Taurine is often an ingredient in supplements taken by athletes as it helps muscles to work harder. A deficiency in Taurine can lead to vision problems, as it is needed for proper retinal functioning, hypertension, depression and anxiety, weight gain, and problems with endurance or recovery after workouts.
