SIDNEY – A nurse practitioner with more than 15 years of experience has started an IV vitamin injection and infusion clinic called Revitalizing Hydration and Wellness, LLC in Sidney, helping people with muscle aches, migraines, fatigue, dehydration and more.
Erica Moses has worked in many areas of the healthcare field, such as palliative care, home care, and emergency care. She wanted to start her own business for the past two years, and the changes in the healthcare industry over the years – such as since the COVID-19 pandemic – motivated her to find something in the industry. who fascinated her.
“Working in healthcare I started to lose interest a bit and started to focus more on my well-being which then introduced me to vitamin IV hydration,” said Moses. “So that’s what inspired me to bring this to the area, because I noticed a lot of improvements once I got the infusions and all the benefits it could bring to people.”
IV vitamin injections and infusions are a more effective way to see immediate benefits to the body, because “only 25% of the vitamins we take orally are absorbed and 100% are absorbed through IV hydration. That’s why it’s so important to me because we get all the benefits and our body uses what it needs,” as Moses said in a ICT Tac video.
Only certain healthcare professionals are authorized to administer IVs, and these are usually nurses. Moses not only has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Wright State University and a Masters of Family Medicine Nursing from Kaplan University/Purdue University Global, but she is also certified to administer IV vitamin infusions. and it has obtained licenses through the Ohio Board of Pharmacy, the State of Ohio and the City of Sidney.
What sets Moses’ clinic apart from others in the area is that she makes her own cocktails in her office, rather than using a pre-mixed compound, so she can customize them and strip out all the ingredients that a customer might be allergic. .
Certain health conditions could preclude a client from receiving intravenous infusions, such as taking Coumadin (a blood thinner), extensive heart health issues, or heart failure, and severe kidney or liver disease.
Moses is looking to offer more wellness options to its customers soon, including intravenous infusion that would help cancer patients and non-intravenous treatments.
“Intravenous hydration is just the start of my journey. I plan to bring other things to my clinic. My next one will also be male hormone replacement therapy, so there will be other additions to my wellness journey,” said Moses.
The clinic is open Monday from 7am to 5pm, Tuesday from 9am to 7pm, Friday from 8am to 4pm, Saturday from 8am to 12pm and Sunday from 10am to 2pm and clients can come in or make an appointment online or by phone.
