Detox IV: A Full Body Reset

One big benefit of IV therapy is its ability to give the body a full detox. We often hear the experience described as rejuvenating, reviving, and replenishing. This comes from the abundance of antioxidants and feel good vitamins that work together to make the detox IV.

There are many reasons why you may need a detox IV – toxin exposure, oxidative stress, free radicals, diet, and more. We’ll go into depth in this post. At Drp IV, we offer a series of IV packages that could be considered detox IVs. Although they have different names, you will certainly experience the benefits listed in this article when you get one of these treatments. They include, the immunity drip, the mega myers, the hangover drip, the myers plus, and the COVID/Flu drip.

When’s A Good Time To Get The Detox IV

If you’ve found yourself wondering this same question, you’re not alone! It can be tricky to know if a detox IV will help some of your symptoms. It can help to schedule your IV based on your recent activities or current situation rather than your symptoms. For example, if you live in a city with fair amounts of pollution, you’re being exposed to toxins every day and might not know it. So, the fact that you live in a city is reason enough to schedule a detox IV – you’ll notice a difference.


It can also be good practice to plan for a detox IV if you know you’re going for a night out, a fun trip, or celebrating the holidays with some indulgence. These instances, and others, can cause fatigue, sluggishness, all big reasons to get situated with a detox IV.

These IVs are also great for recovery. Many hospital outpatients have seen benefits from getting IV therapy during their recovery.

How Does Detox IV Therapy Work?

IV therapy is a great way to get fluids and nutrients because it delivers them in a manner where there is 100% bioavailability. This means that rather than processing just some of what you get, your body is able to absorb and use it all. This is in part why people feel so much better after an IV therapy treatment. Now that you know what the treatment does, let’s get into what to expect:


At the time of your appointment, a nurse will arrive and have you choose a spot where you feel comfortable. They’ll begin setting up their equipment and take your vitals. After that, they’ll prepare the IV. Our nurses are highly trained and will expertly place the IV. Many people don’t know that the needle used to place the IV doesn’t stay in the arm, rather a small, flexible catheter stays.


One by one the nurse will prepare the additives for the IV. They will be sure to explain the benefits of each one as they are drawn up and pushed through the IV tubing. When the nutrients have all been pushed and the IV fluid has all been administered, the nurse will begin to pack up their materials. You will likely begin to feel the effects of the detox IV right away or soon after.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a detox IV do?

A detox IV aims to support the body’s natural detoxification processes by delivering intravenous fluids and essential nutrients. It is designed to enhance hydration and provide vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that may assist the liver and kidneys in eliminating toxins.

While IV fluids can contribute to hydration and nutrient replenishment, they also provide antioxidants that help reduce free radicals and oxidative stress, providing that refreshing detox. IV fluids primarily assist in maintaining proper bodily functions, and the term “cleaning the system” is not a widely accepted or well-defined concept in medical science.

A detox IV typically contains a blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These components are carefully selected to support liver function and aid in the removal of toxins from the body. The specific ingredients may vary, but common elements include vitamins such as B-complex, vitamin C, and minerals like magnesium.

Identifying if your body is in “detox mode” can be challenging as the term lacks a standardized definition. However, signs of effective natural detoxification may include increased urination, improved digestion, and an overall sense of well-being. The body’s natural detox processes primarily involve the liver and kidneys, and optimal organ function can contribute to a healthier system.
