Any product given to a person for health reasons that uses an IV should be regulated by our healthcare system. The process of administering an IV requires placing a needle into a person. In many cases these IV vitamin treatments are offered in a "spa" or other gym facility. People are lured to the facility by health and fitness claims and then given health evaluations that lead to diagnosis and treatments using IV vitamins and other dubious therapies. Any facility claiming to help disease should be held to a basic level of proof that the therapy works. If it does not, the facility should be required to stop offering the treatment. As the population ages, individuals are vunerable to claims of wellness. This is a big industry and must be required to prove effectiveness of treatments offered.
