You may have seen posts on social media by celebrities from Rihanna to Cindy Crawford who are taking part in the health trend called “IV Therapy” for their dose of vitamins and minerals. But what you may not know is that you don’t have to be a celebrity to try it for yourself! 

Dr. Bradley Axline and his team of registered nurses supply on-demand, vitamin-infused IV blends to improve recovery, repair, and rehydration on the cellular level in the comfort of his Flower Mound office. His science-backed therapies and formulas are created and perfected to address a variety of health issues including weight management, low energy, migraines, nausea, dehydration, low libido, hangovers, jet lag, and various other ailments. 

What is IV Therapy? 

Intravenous (IV) therapy provides the essential vitamins and nutrients you need for optimal body function and health through an IV drip. Rather than swallow pills or capsules, the IV solution goes straight into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive system so your body can absorb 100% of the nutrients it needs. Dr. Axline offers a variety of IV “cocktails” customized with concentrated doses of vitamins to address each of your specific needs. In addition to the classic Myers’ drip formula, we offer IV infusions to help with:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Improving weight management
  • Nausea
  • Dehydration & hangovers
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Cold & Flu
  • Short bowel syndrome
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Migraines 
  • Jet Lag
  • And many other health issues and ailments

If you want to learn more about the uses of IV therapy or are fed up with always feeling fatigued or run down, contact our team at Bradley Axline, MD today to learn how IV therapy can improve your health.

What are the signs of vitamin deficiency?

Your body needs a variety of vitamins and nutrients to be healthy and function correctly. Even when eating a nutritious and balanced meal, your body might not absorb everything it needs from the foods you eat. An interesting health fact is that 92% of the U.S. population suffers from vitamin and mineral deficiency. Signs that you have a vitamin deficiency include:

  • Low energy and fatigue
  • Aches in your muscles and bones
  • Pale skin and lips
  • Mouth ulcers and bleeding gums
  • Dry, brittle hair & nails
  • Dandruff
  • Hair loss
  • Digestive problems

While these symptoms may sound like minor annoyances, they could point to a vitamin deficiency or more serious health issue. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to your health and wellness; so get in contact with Dr. Axline’s office today to schedule a consultation. 

Why are vitamins, minerals, & antioxidants important?

Taking the right amount of vitamins and minerals on a daily basis helps support your bone density, heal wounds, convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage. If your body doesn’t have enough vitamins and minerals, you could develop health issues such as scurvy, blindness, and other deficiencies. 

Without enough antioxidants, free radicals – molecules with unpaired electrons – could overtake your body and possibly create cell death, leading to high risks of cancer and damage to your DNA. It is extremely vital for us to consume enough vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants on a daily basis and include IV Therapy to boost your vitamin and mineral intake.

How does IV Therapy work?

IV Therapy takes 30-60 minutes and is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. During the treatment, you rest in a comfortable chair while one of our registered nurses inserts a small needle into the vein of your arm or hand and connects it to an IV drip filled with the customized vitamin infusion. Then, you simply relax while the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants slowly enter your bloodstream. After your vitamin cocktail, you may start to feel more energized and ready to conquer the day. For better results, you may need to have regular IV infusions to ensure your body has all the nutrients it needs to improve your overall wellness.  

What can I expect to pay?

Procedures start at $175 depending on the “cocktail” mixture and how often you plan to visit us. Prices are discounted when patients purchase the special IV Therapy packages that we offer at Dr. Axline.
