IV Therapies


IV Therapy offers a safe, fast, efficient way to rehydrate, replenish and revitalize your entire body, so you can feel and look your best. It works by infusing vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and electrolytes directly into the bloodstream to ensure optimal nutrient absorption.

The processed foods and stress of today deplete the body of essential vitamins and minerals. Even with a healthy diet, the body only absorbs a fraction of the nutrients it takes in. By bypassing the digestive system, IV Therapy restores wellness at the cellular level with up to 400% more nutrient absorption over food and oral supplements.

Pioneered in the 1950s by Johns Hopkins physician Dr. John Myers, IV Therapy corrects nutrient and hydration deficiencies, eliminates toxins, boosts immunities, increases energy, improves healing functions, boosts mental and athletic performance, and improves the overall health and wellness.

How does IV Therapy Work?

During the procedure, one of our IV Therapy Specialists will insert a catheter into a vein via a sterile needle, through which the IV drip will be administered. Most treatments last 30-45 minutes, so you can relax, read, snack, watch TV, listen to music, and even nap during therapy. Most patients look and refreshed immediately after their IV Therapy, but it generally takes 30-45 minutes for the full results to take effect.

Is IV Therapy safe?

For your safety, All IV Therapy formulas offered at Belcara Health are assembled in an FDA-regulated, FDA-registered and FDA-licensed pharmacy and treatments are performed by highly trained and experienced Registered Nurses, with a Board-Certified Physician always on site.

Why is IV therapy recommended before or after surgery?

During surgery, the body naturally loses fluids, nutrients, and electrolytes. Before surgery, Pre/Post-Opt IV Therapy treatments will hydrate and relax the body, increase energy stores, and boost immunities. After surgery, IV Therapy eases recovery, wards off infection, and promotes collagen production for faster healing.

How does IV Therapy help with Anti-Aging?

Skin aging happens both inside and outside tissue layers. Anti-Aging IV Therapy treatments reduce the signs of aging by providing powerful nutrients to repair cells, improve skin health, and stimulating collagen production, leading to a more youthful glow and revitalized appearance.

Will IV therapy prevent or improve sun damage?

Yes, especially if you select an anti-aging formula like Anti-Aging/Beauty IV Therapy. This treatment includes the antioxidants glutathione and vitamin C which can lighten age spots, stimulate collagen to help the skin repair itself, and reduce the effects of free radicals which can damage tissue. IV Therapy also reduces inflammation and restores skin’s natural moisture, making it a great treatment for acne and dry skin disorders such as dermatitis, psoriasis, and rosacea.

How does IV therapy improve athletic performance?

Athletic Boost IV Therapy treatments provide the hydration, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and electrolytes needed to increase strength and energy stores for optimal endurance and peak performance, plus decrease muscle soreness after activity. In addition, many people find that this treatment promotes mental focus, energy, and overall wellness before a major event, project, presentation or vacation.

How does IV therapy help with weight loss?

When the body is dehydrated, it can be difficult to lose weight—even if you follow a rigorous diet and exercise program. When your body is dehydrated, it slows down your metabolism and seeks energy from sources other than fat cells. With IV Therapy, the body gains nutrients that boost metabolism, cell detoxification and healthy sleep patterns – all essential for losing those extra pounds. Adding Lipo-Blaster IM Therapy to help the liver process and remove fat cells for even faster weight loss results. We recommend Lipo-Blaster IM Therapy twice a week for the first four weeks, followed by weekly injections every four weeks as needed.

What is the difference in IV Therapy and IM Therapy?

Since both IV Therapy and IM Therapy offer many formulations and can be customized to your needs, the primary differences are the delivery method and the amount of time for results to be realized. IV Therapy is administered via an IV catheter inserted directly into a vein and takes about 30-45 minutes for the body to absorb nutrients. IM Therapy is administered directly into muscle tissue and provides immediate results.

Can I receive both IV Therapy and IM Therapy treatments?

Yes, and sometimes both treatments are recommended to improve or speed results.

How do I know which treatment is right for me?

Your IV Therapy Specialist will work with you to determine which IV and/or IM Therapy treatment plan will be most beneficial for your wellness needs and goals.
