What is IV Therapy Miami, FL

IV Therapy Miami: Nutrient deficiencies among American adults but in other parts of the world have been on the rise for centuries and this trend will continue to increase. Researchers believe that nutrient deficiencies have contributed to the higher rate of chronic diseases, inflammation, dehydration, and decreased immunity in the world today.

IV therapy can help you boost your immune system, help you fight against diseases and infections, boost your energy levels, and generally keep you healthy.

Definition of IV therapy

IV therapy is the delivery of nutrients, vitamins, and fluids directly into the bloodstream through the veins. Concentrations of vitamins, nutrients and fluids are intravenously delivered into the body through the veins. The intravenous route of administering these concentrations of nutrients, vitamins and fluids into the bloodstream are injections with syringes and infusions also known as drips.

IV therapy Miami is the fastest and most effective way of delivering nutrients, vitamins, fluids and medications into the body system. Concentrations that are taken intravenously bypass the digestive system and get directly into the bloodstream and body organs. IV therapy results in 90-100% absorption rates whereas orally administering these nutrients, fluids and medications can only result in 20-50% absorption rates due to the breakdowns that take place in the digestive system.


IV therapy treatment has been a part of medicine for centuries. Dr. Thomas Latta publishes the first Intravenous technology in 1883 during a cholera epidemic in Britain. The standard use of IV saline solutions did not commence until 1902. IV therapy was further developed in the 1930s but was not widely used until the 1950s.

The use of intravenous vitamins and minerals as part of the overall treatment of various medical conditions was pioneered by Dr. Myers.

When Dr. Meyer passed away in 1984, many of his patients who found relief with his IV treatments in medspa sought continued IV therapy with another Baltimore physician called Dr. Alan R. Gaby M.D.

Dr. Gaby often writes about nutrition in medicine. He documented and published Myers IV treatment in 2002 and named it Myers’s Cocktail, in honor of the late Dr. Myers. Myers’ cocktail has been in use to provide relief for patients with a variety of conditions such as fatigue, depression, migraine, acute muscle spasm, acute asthma, athletic performance, fibromyalgia, upper respiratory tract infections, and so on.

Dr. Gaby has treated thousands of patients with the Myers’ Cocktail for over many years. Traditionally, IV is given to patients in the hospital setting. Today, more medical practitioners are including IV treatments in their practice even outside the hospitals.

Types of IV therapy

The two main types of IV therapy are IV Drip and IV Push.

IV Drip

An IV Drip is a type of intravenous treatment in medspa whereby the concentration of nutrients and fluids is slowly infused into the blood via a small plastic tube known as a catheter which is inserted into the vein.

During an IV Drip, your doctor will insert a catheter into your vein with the use of a needle. When the catheter is in place, the needle is quickly removed. The drip contains an average of 250-1000 ml of fluids. A session of drip is about 45-60 minutes.

IV Push

An IV push is similar to an IV drip. However, the main differences are the duration which both treatments take and the amount of fluids injected into the bloodstream.

During an IV Push, your doctor administered the concentration of nutrients and fluids into your vein via a previously inserted plastic catheter. IV push is a continuation of an IV drip. When the amount of drip administered is not enough, an IV push is used to add more concentration of nutrients.

A session of an IV push takes about 15-20 minutes. The drip contains a total of 30-60 ml of fluids.
