Wouldn’t it be great if a special drip loaded with beneficial vitamins, fluids, and nutrients could give you a quick and refreshing health boost? This is exactly what you may experience with IV hydration therapy. From overcoming jet lag to reversing the effects of stress or excessive alcohol consumption, there are many ways appealing reasons to consider IV therapy.
What is IV Hydration Therapy?
In a nutshell, hydration therapy is a minimally invasive way to replenish or deliver fluids. Vitamins, electrolytes, and other supplements can be delivered intravenously as well to offset symptoms associated with dehydration, a lack of energy primarily due to nutritional imbalances, and certain illnesses and ailments.
Why Consider IV Therapy?
Intravenous delivery of fluids or nutrients optimizes potency and increases the absorption rate, which can also produce the desired results faster. Because there are different fluids that can be included in an IV administered for therapeutic purposes, benefits can vary based on your reason for having IV hydration therapy. Athletes, for instance, may benefit from the ability to quickly regain important nutrients and fluids that were lost after a grueling competition.
At the very least, you could enjoy an overall boost in energy and wellness. Re-hydrating your body, in general, and restoring optimal vitamin levels could produce a wide range of positive benefits that may include:
- A healthier immune system
- Reduced anxiety and stress levels
- A noticeable decrease in general aches and pains
- Memory enhancement
- Smoother and healthier skin tone
- Reversal of heavy metal toxicity issues
- A better ability to fight infections
- Improved sleep and less fatigue
How is IV Hydration Therapy Performed?
IV fluids or nutrients are administered in a clean, sterile environment. You will be monitored the entire time during hydration therapy. The nutrients delivered via the IV will go directly into your bloodstream. The injection site, which is usually in the arm, is typically sterilized as well. The IV fluids flow through a tube called an IV catheter that’s inserted into a vein.
Because your gastrointestinal system is avoided entirely, you will be less likely to experience side effects associated with medications that have to go through the digestive system. Dosing can also be lower than what would be necessary with orally digested nutrients or vitamins.
Treatment is often completed in a short period of time. You’ll likely be able to listen to music, read a book, or use your favorite mobile device as you undergo treatment to make the experience more relaxing and comfortable. You may be able to enjoy some of the benefits associated with IV drips if you take regular vitamins orally and make an effort to eat more nutritionally balanced meals, but absorption can be limited by the digestive processes. IV hydration therapy allows for dosages to be customized and directly delivered in a way that is carefully controlled and safe.
