Who Can Benefit From IV Therapy?

Who Can Benefit From IV Therapy?

IV therapy is gaining ground as a great way to rehydrate, recover, and revitalize by delivering essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This safe and simple outpatient treatment bypasses your digestive system — unlike oral vitamins that take a long time to break down and get to work, IV therapy provides instant benefits. 

Dr. Jerome Washington offers IV nutritional supplementation at LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A., in San Antonio, Texas, to treat a number of aches, pains, and health problems, including back and neck pain, headaches and migraines, neuropathy, and chronic fatigue. Here’s a look at who can benefit from IV therapy. 


If you’re an athlete, you push your body harder than most, and if you don’t get enough vitamins and minerals to help your muscles and your mind do the work, you’re fighting an uphill battle. 

We customize your IV therapy ingredients to address your specific needs, such as hydration, muscle growth, quick healing and recovery, and endurance. Your IV therapy can also help you flush out free radicals, unstable atoms that can wreck your cells and lead to illness and premature aging.


Losing weight has many challenges, but being low on essential micronutrients could be thwarting your dieting efforts. The right combination of vitamins can assist your body as it burns fat and breaks it down more efficiently. IV therapy can help you overcome dieting plateaus and lose weight faster.

Preventive health buffs

You eat right, exercise, and do everything you can to take care of your physical and mental health, but sometimes life gets busy and you lose control of the factors that keep you strong and healthy. This leaves you vulnerable to viruses and bacteria that lurk on surfaces and in the air, just waiting for an opportune moment to capitalize on your weakness.

IV therapy steps in to boost your immune system when your defenses are down. In addition to strengthening you physically, it can support your mental health by staving off anxiety, stress, and depression as well as improving your concentration and cognitive skills.


Working hard and getting ahead are admirable qualities, but they also put you at risk for burnout and illness. When you overtax your mind and body, eventually, something has to give. 

But you can avoid physical, mental, and emotional breakdowns by ensuring your body has the nutrients it needs to keep going strong. If you’re the type of person who burns the candle at both ends all the time, consider IV therapy to make sure you’re up to the job.


We don’t recommend excess alcohol consumption, but we also know that life should be celebrated. If you celebrate a little too much at times, however, IV therapy can help you get over the consequences the next day. 

What’s commonly called a hangover is a combination of physical reactions, including dehydration, which shrinks your muscles and brain tissue. It also triggers a long list of symptoms, such as:

With the right combination of vitamins and minerals, IV therapy can detox your liver, get rid of your symptoms, and get you feeling like yourself again. 

Skin care enthusiasts

You have a counter full of skin care creams and serums and a drawer or medicine cabinet brimming with products you’ve tried and set aside because they just don’t do what they promise. That’s because you’re trying to revive dead skin on the top layer. 

If you really want to change your skin, do it from within. IV therapy floods your system with ingredients that feed your skin, hair, and nails to slow the aging process, brighten your complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and clarify acne-prone skin. 

To find out if IV therapy can help you overcome muscle spasms, cramps, fatigue, migraines, sciatica, or musculoskeletal pain, or if you identify with any of the groups listed here, call or click to schedule an appointment with Dr. Washington today. You can be feeling better after just one 90-minute session.
