FAQ’s

General

AguaVivir is an Ambulatory Infusion Lounge, providing physician-directed IV infusion and patient-directed wellness services.

An Ambulatory Infusion Lounge (AIL) is a safe, monitored alternative care site to a patient’s home, physician’s office, or hospital setting where patients can receive infusion therapy. Continuity of care is provided by a nurse practitioner who is familiar with your case and highly skilled medical professionals who deliver the treatment are focused on injectable and infusion treatment regimens. Learn more about the benefits of receiving treatment in the AIL setting HERE.

Physician-directed IV infusions require a doctor’s referral. These kinds of specialty drug infusions treat patients with chronic conditions which are often covered by insurance and/or Medicare. 

Patient-directed wellness services are an “out-of-pocket” expense and include treatments like vitamin injections and hydration IV infusion and aesthetic services like Botox and dermal fillers.

Patients

Absolutely. About 24 million Americans suffer from one of the more than 80 different types of Autoimmune Diseases. Some of the most common symptoms across all autoimmune diseases are fatigue and lowered ability to fight infections. Certain infections lead to dehydration, furthering fatigue and inhibiting recovery. Vitamin hydration IV therapy can be a great addition to a patient’s current treatment regimen to alleviate a person’s pain and other symptoms therefore improving quality of life. Autoimmune diseases sometimes cannot be cured, but their symptoms can be addressed through a variety of treatments that reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and block pain.

One of our patient-directed wellness services includes vitamin hydration IV infusion. We distinguish these kinds of infusions from our provider-directed infusions by calling the collection of vitamin hydration IV infusions “Drips.” Like other kinds of IV infusion, hydration and vitamin infusion is a means of administering fluids, vitamins, and minerals intravenously, or through the veins.

Wellness Drips are typically a 45-60 minute treatment that replenishes fluids, vitamins, and nutrients straight into the bloodstream. The treatment helps to directly target organs, allowing us to detoxify, nourish, and hydrate from within for dramatic and, in many cases, fast effects.

As much as 60-70% of the vitamins, supplements, and medications we consume orally are broken down by the digestive system or used up by the natural bacteria found in the digestive tract, creating a gap in bioavailability. When nutrients are pumped directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the digestive process, making absorption 100% available to the body’s own critical functions.

Continuity of care is provided by a nurse practitioner who is familiar with your case and the infusion is delivered by highly skilled medical professionals who focus exclusively on injectable and infusion treatment regimens. You will be closely monitored by the medical team throughout your treatment.

It depends. Physician-directed treatment routines will be established by your doctor. Patient-directed treatments are, well…patient-directed; you get to decide how often you receive treatment. Everyone will have different needs based on their body’s needs and life’s ever-changing demands. Some people choose to have infusions done once per month or just when they feel they need a boost, while others like to have regular therapy once per week or every other week.

Yes, they might. IV therapy delivers essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream, which is superior to many oral supplements because we can administer more potent doses since needed vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are 100% bioavailable at the cellular level and bypass the digestive tract. The result: People feel better!

 

The human body might struggle with nutrient insufficiency. When certain systems require a greater workload, fuel delivery will be shifted away from one location to attend to a more critical biological function. As a result, the body is functioning at a deficit and must constantly play a game of “catch-up” in order to function. IV infusion ensures complete absorption of minerals and vitamins required for optimal function.

Some of the nutrients in our Drips include:

Vitamin B12

Some autoimmune diseases prevent your body from absorbing the vitamin B12 you consume, which is a problem because you need vitamin B12 to produce white blood cells, which are essential to a healthy immune system. A boost of vitamin B12 improves your immune system.

Glutathione

Oxidative stress occurs when you have free radicals that react with other molecules, a process called oxidation, and wreak havoc with your immune system. Glutathione is an antioxidant that stabilizes the system and protects cells from inflammation, boosts the immune system, and supports healing of the stomach lining and the blood-brain barrier

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is another powerful antioxidant, but your body doesn’t make its own. Many people don’t get enough vitamin C from their diet to support immune cell functions and keep their body calm. Studies show that vitamin C is an essential ingredient for controlling inflammation and autoimmunity, and reduces the body’s natural response to stress.

Micronutrients

When inflammation pervades your body, it prevents the absorption of certain nutrients, such as magnesium, selenium, and zinc. Infusions that fortify these critical nutrients help reduce inflammation, contribute to the management of complications from autoimmune diseases, and even improve quality of life.

Physician-directed IV infusions are offered for patients who suffer from autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s, Celiac Disease, Grave’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, etc According to the National Institute of Health, 23.5 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease, and the prevalence is rising. Autoimmune disease disproportionately affects women, representing almost 75% of the population suffering from autoimmune disease.
