Prana IV Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is the administration of intravenous fluids, and can include a mixture of IV vitamins, IV minerals, IV supplements like antioxidants or amino acids, and IV medications. The specific blend - or "IV drip" - you receive is tailored to your specific symptoms, and your health and wellness goals. 

IV therapy is administered by a Registered Nurse, and typically takes about 30-40 minutes for one liter of IV fluids. 

Why is IV therapy better than oral fluids, medications & supplements?

When you receive fluids, medications and supplements via IV therapy, they bypass digestion and go directly into the blood stream. This has benefits:

  • Faster uptake: Instant uptake of fluids, medications and supplements by your body, so you feel better quicker
  • Better absorption: Your body can better absorb vitamins, medications and supplements via IV than via oral methods like pills (~50% of the vitamin is absorbed orally, while ~90% is absorbed in IV form)
  • Acute illness: When you're nauseous, have vomiting or diarrhea, stayed hydrated orally can be difficult.
  • Chronic illness: Bypassing digestion can be helpful - even necessary - for many sufferers of chronic illnesses, particularly those that impair digestive organs like IBS, IBD, GERD, Crohn's disease, Celiac disease and Colitis. 
  • Age: Our ability to digest and absorb vitamins from pills - and from food itself - gets worse as we age, and can lead to deficiencies. Even mild deficiencies in certain vitamins can lead to fatigue, brain fog and faster aging.
  • Lifestyle: Lifestyle factors like smoking, alcohol and drug use can impact your ability to absorb the nutrients from pills, while at the same time depleting your body of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in order to process these toxins.
  • Diet: People on restrictive diets may not get enough of certain vitamins and minerals from food. 
Where can I buy IV fluids?

You can buy IV fluids in the Phoenix, AZ area either via Prana IV Therapy's mobile IV service or at our Scottsdale, AZ IV clinic.

A registered nurse will administer your IV fluids at your home, hotel or office (no travel fees for mobile IV service!) or at our clinic location.

We don't sell the bags of IV fluids by themselves for your own personal use; the IV fluids must be part of your IV therapy treatment.

What are the contraindictions for IV therapy?
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Kidney Failure
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Heart Arrhythmia 
  • Liver Cirrhosis 
  • Bleeding/Clotting Disorders

Prior to treatment, we review health history, allergies, screen for contraindications, and take a full set of vitals to ensure you are an appropriate candidate for IV therapy. 

How often should I receive IV therapy?

It totally depends on your wellness needs & goals!

Acute illness, like food poisoning, flu or a cold? One treatment often does the trick, or call us on back-to-back days if you're suffering with diarrhea or vomiting that just won't relent.

Migraines? It works best if you call us as soon as you feel it coming, but we are often able to help patients find relief even when they call on day 3 of a migraine.

Suffering from low energy & immunity, or struggling with symptoms of chronic illnesses and GI issues that leave you depleted? Many of our clients with these issues opt for weekly treatments to try to get on top of their hydration and vitamin needs, and they love the consistent boost of energy from weekly treatments.

Weight loss, detox, beauty or performance goals? We have many weekly, biweekly, or single-event-based clients who love the way they feel, look & perform when they are treating themselves to IV therapy on a regular basis, or even just in the few days leading up to an event!

Do you treat children?

Yes! As long as they are 12+ years of age OR 100+ lbs, and don't have any contraindications like kidney issues, we are happy to treat kids!

We frequently see kids/teens for flu, stomach bugs, food poisoning, and due to mild dehydration from sports practices or games.

Side effects may include:

  • Minor swelling/pain at the injection site
  • Minor bleeding/bruise at injection site

Please inform us of all allergies before receiving IV therapy. In the extremely rare case of an allergic reaction to a medication or supplement, we will dose with antihistamine or use an Epi-Pen as appropriate (we require our RNs to carry both at all times.)

I'm a nurse - can you just sell me the supplies?

We do! Depending on staffing, we often have an RN available for after hours calls in the Phoenix metro area. Give us a call or text - if we are still open, an RN will answer! Our after hours fee is $100.
