IV drips are not new, but IV therapy is
If you’ve ever been in the hospital (or visited a friend or family member there), you’re probably familiar with IV drip bags pumping fluids into your bloodstream through your hand or arm. IV drips have been used in hospitals for over a hundred years as a more efficient way to administer fluids and medication to patients in a variety of situations, from severe dehydration to surgery to giving birth.
However, more recently, IV drips have started moving from hospitals into the rest of the world as an innovative wellness treatment. For the same reasons IVs are used in hospitals, folks are adding IV therapy to their regular wellness routine as an efficient and effective way to rehydrate, restore, and replenish their body.
But, how have the hospital IVs we know been adapted to meet the needs of the greater nation? While the method remains the same, the drip fluid itself is really where modern-day IV therapy comes to life.
What is IV therapy?
Both in and out of hospitals, IV therapy is the intravenous administration of fluids, vitamins, and other nutrients or medication in your bloodstream. Most IV drips have a saline solution base, which promotes rehydration within your body by forcing water into your tissues.
The blending of vitamins and minerals with the saline solution is where IV therapy can be highly customized to each individual. For example, if you’re deficient in Vitamin C, your IV drip cocktail can contain exactly the amount of Vitamin C your body needs to balance that deficiency. Or, if you’re nursing a bad hangover, your IV drip can contain some extra electrolytes to help rehydrate and repair your body to get you back on your feet faster.
With modern-day technology and precision dosing, the possibilities are really endless, and IV therapy is the best and fastest way to get nutrients into your body.

Different types of IV therapy
While the intravenous administration of fluids and nutrients is the same as it’s always been, IV therapy drips are highly unique and can be mixed to meet a lot of different unique needs.
We offer three main types of IV therapy treatments here at 10X Health, and each provides unique benefits while also remaining flexible to be customized to our clients when needed.
IV therapy with NAD
IV therapy drips can include a coenzyme called Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD for short), which is naturally occurring in our cells and plays a key role in aging. As we age, NAD levels in our body decrease, which triggers the normal signs of aging we are familiar with, including wrinkles and decreased energy. By adding NAD to an IV therapy treatment, we can replenish NAD levels in your body and reduce those signs of aging significantly, leading to feeling and looking healthier overall.
Ozone IV therapy
Ozone IV therapy is a unique and innovative treatment that stimulates the immune system and is very good at reducing inflammation throughout the body. As the name suggests, ozone IV therapy mixes fluids with ozone – a three-molecule, clear gas – to treat some medical conditions, like diabetes or immune disorders, and aid in quicker healing.
Recovery IV therapy
With how effective IV therapy is at rehydrating the body, it’s also a very popular treatment among athletes to recover after a competition or a hard workout. A special blend of fluids, electrolytes, amino acids, and other nutrients can aid in quicker recovery while amplifying the positive effects of a workout at the same time.
IV therapy is a great addition to any wellness regimen because it can be fully customized to your unique needs. The 10X Health team will take the time to get to know more about your concerns and deficiencies to mix up the perfect cocktail to give your body exactly what it needs to thrive through precision dosing.
