Frequently Asked Questions


How long will the IV drip take?

Anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. However, if you’re body is more sensitive then we can slow it down to allow you to be as comfortable as possible.

Can I resume my activties/work are my drip?

YES! After your drip, you will be feeling your best to continue all of your activities and work.

Which form of B12 do you use?

We use Hydroxocobalamin to allow for maximum absorption, providing you with the best outcome possible.

When are drips most effective? Before, during or after illness, stress or events?

All of the above! We recommend drips to help you prepare and replenish your body from all of the activities that you put it through due to your busy and stressful lives. The vitamins and minerals that are in our drips allows your body to work more efficiently and effectively during your event as well as replenish it afterwards for a speedy recovery. If you’re feeling under the weather then the vitamins and minerals are an excellent way to help your body recover quicker to get you back to your active life.

Does it hurt?

Hope for Healing cares immensely about our patients’ wellness and comfort. We have an amazing team of registered nurses (RN), Nurse Practitioners (NP), and Physicians (MD). Most of our infusion specialists are experienced RN’s who have worked in hospitals and therefore have developed the skills necessary to provide high quality service. We use small, delicate needles and a localized numbing agent (upon request) to provide a relatively pain-free experience. Additionally, if we are having difficulty finding a vein, we have an ultrasound to help guide the RN’s. In any event, everyone’s pain threshold is different. While most find it painless, others may feel brief discomfort upon needle insertion. Generally, patients find the infusion itself quite relaxing.

What is an IV?

IV is short for intravenous (in the vein). We provide IV’s to give your body the vitamins and minerals that it needs more efficiently than any other method. Yes, there is a small poke with a small needle, but once the vein is accessed, the needle comes out and the plastic catheter is left in it’s place.

What is IV Therapy?

IV therapy is a method of treatment that Hope for Healing uses to give your body the vitamins and minerals that it needs to prepare and replenish your body, allowing it to work at it’s maximum capacity. In today’s world, many people are missing some key nutrients leading to fatigue, muscle aches, illness, anxiety, depression, stress, and many other ailments and illnesses. By receiving IV therapy, you will absorb 100% of the nutrients that are in your drip.

Is IV Therapy safe?

Yes! Instead of the harsh chemicals that are in medications, we provide your body with the natural vitamins and minerals that it needs. All of our ingredients are carefully selected by our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Paula Kruppstadt, to ensure that you are receiving nutrients that are without parabens and phthalates and are tested thoroughly. Additionally, the form of nutrients that we give is always the most bioavailable form so that your body is able to readily absorb the nutrients without any of it being wasted. Our nursing staff is highly trained and experienced which allows you to have the most comfortable experience possible.

Are there any side effects?

Generally, side effects are minimal or non-existent. Due to the placement of your IV, you may have some discomfort, bruising, redness, itching, inflammation or redness which can last anywhere from a few minutes to several days. Due to the ingredients in your drip, you may taste the vitamins and you may feel cold however we have snacks and blankets to help with these safe and expected side effects. True allergic reactions are extremely rare however if you experience throat swelling, pruritic body rash, dangerously low blood pressure, or symptoms associated with anaphylaxis following administration of an injection, visit your nearest emergency department. If you know you are allergic to any of the ingredients — please avoid it!

What ailments are addressed by IV therapy?

We have a “cocktail” for nearly any condition but we also recommend it for maintaining your overall health.
We have specific drips for:
- Overall wellness
- Allergy symptoms
- Migraine
- Improving your skin and promoting anti-aging effects
- Hydration
- Fatigue

- Rejuvenate after traveling and stress
- Detox
- Pre-Workout
- Recovering from a recent illness

Can you create specific IV drip based on my individual needs?

Yes! While we do have specific drips that our medical team has assembled based on specific problems, you do have the opportunity to create your own based on your requests.

What shots do you offer?

At this time, we offer B12, CoQ10, B Complex (B1,B2, B3, B5, and B6) and Lipo Vitality shots. For more detail on each of these individual boosters, please see our common boosters page.
