Intravenous (IV) therapy is a powerful health booster that has become popular recently. The treatment offers many benefits for anyone looking to improve their well-being. 

In Springville, Utah, Joseph Dragon, FNP-BC, and our team at Dragon Healthcare Services & Med Spa are committed to providing innovative solutions, like IV therapy, to help you achieve optimal health. 

This blog breaks down the science behind IV therapy and how it can enhance your well-being.

How does IV therapy work?

IV therapy delivers a carefully formulated blend of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream via an intravenous drip. 

With IV therapy, you receive 100% of the nutrients directly into your bloodstream, unlike oral supplements, which may lose potency as they pass through the digestive system.

The direct delivery of nutrients into the bloodstream allows for quicker onset of benefits, often noticeable within hours of treatment.

IV therapy can also be tailored to address any specific health concerns or deficiencies, ensuring you receive the exact nutrients your body needs.

Who may need IV therapy? 

Most people stand to benefit from IV therapy, and this treatment has been shown to help with the following issues:


IV therapy provides rapid rehydration, helping to alleviate these symptoms and improve overall well-being.

Immune support

Customized IV therapy treatments can help to boost your immune system, reducing your risk of illness and helping you recover more quickly from infections.

Improve athletic performance and recovery

IV therapy can support athletes by providing essential nutrients to improve their performance, speed up recovery, and reduce inflammation.

Energy and mood enhancement

If you are struggling with fatigue and low energy levels, IV therapy can help. It helps provide a natural mood boost and enhances mental clarity.


Some IV therapy formulations can support your body's natural detoxification processes, helping flush out toxins and boosting your overall health.

To determine whether IV therapy will be ideal for you, first, consult with our team. We evaluate your medical history and any medications you're taking to ensure this therapy is a safe and appropriate option for you.

What to expect during an IV therapy session

Your session begins with you seated comfortably while we insert a small medical tube into a vein in your arm. The nutrient-infused solution flows through the IV and into your bloodstream, typically over 30-60 minutes.

During your session, we closely monitor your vital signs and overall well-being to ensure you’re comfortable and getting the most out of the treatment.

Following your treatment, we provide you with aftercare instructions and may recommend additional sessions or supplemental therapies to support your ongoing wellness journey.

IV therapy is a powerful tool for boosting your health and addressing many concerns, from fatigue to detoxification. 

When you book an appointment with the Dragon Healthcare Services & Med Spa team, you can experience the benefits of IV therapy firsthand. Don't hesitate to schedule a consultation online or call 385-685-5114 and discover how IV therapy can revolutionize your approach to health and wellness.
