What is an IV drip and how do infusions work?

Intravenous Therapy (IV) is a medical procedure that involves the administration of fluids, medications or other substances directly into a patient’s vein. This method ensures a controlled and efficient delivery of the desired substances into the patient’s bloodstream, enabling faster absorption and immediate therapeutic effects compared to other methods, such as oral or intramuscular. Tamara Ghazi, Medical Director and Holistic Chiropractor at DISC Group explains: “You have different types of IV drips – from vitamins to regenerative molecules like NAD+ , and then others that are less available in the UAE but emerging in the regenerative field like stem cells and exosomes.” 

How soon do you feel the effects of an IV drip?

Because IV therapy bypasses the digestive system, the effects can be felt almost instantly, making it a convenient option for those needing a quick boost in their vitality and overall wellness. “At DISC, we use the NAD+ infusion that goes directly into the blood stream with instant results,” adds Tamara. “The patient will feel more energised with more mental clarity. NAD+ targets the energy producing part of a cell to help regenerate, hence why it is coined a ‘longevity molecule’ or ‘pro-aging’.”

What can you expect at the appointment? 

The process of infusion, depending on which one chosen, can last between 45 minutes to a couple of hours. “We suggest that you drink and eat sufficiently before the infusion, especially with the NAD+ infusion, as doing this procedure on an empty stomach may cause higher side effects,” says Tamara. Post-treatment, you are free to go about your normal daily activity immediately after an infusion, including driving home and most people can even engage in sports activities. “There are little to no limitations, however, some people may experience heightened senses as the body has been detoxified and cellular activity will be elevated,” says Tamara. 

Who can benefit from an IV drip?

“Generally, a doctor would assess you to understand your individual needs or do a blood test for deficiencies. With regenerative drips, everyone can benefit as we go through life and our bodies undergo the natural aging process due to environmental stressors and exercise,” says Tamara. 

How regularly can you have IV infusions?

“Depending on which substance and the dosage, some IVs are taken monthly, and some are split up as four separate sessions over a one-month duration, then a two to three month break to assess how the individual is feeling energy-wise,” says Tamara. “Blood tests are often prescribed to see how much is absorbed by the body.” 

Are there any downsides to IV infusions?

“Some people may experience temporary side effects like nausea or a cramping sensation, but like any vitamin, the dosage is minimal enough that little to no side effect should be perceived if the body is deficient in the molecule and needs it to be replenished,” says Tamara.
