Intravenous (IV) Hydration Therapy

Intravenous (IV) hydration is a quick and easy way to replenish your body with vital fluid and electrolytes. IV hydration can be utilized for a wide variety of benefits including basic hydration needs, hair and skin improvement, immunity boosters, aid in weight loss, increasing energy and much more!

There are countless environmental stressors that can cause chronic fatigue and nutritional deficiencies. Due to chronic environmental stressors, our bodies are in desperate need of refreshment and rejuvenation hydration regularly. Intravenous (IV) hydration has been frequently used to treat hangovers, jet lag, and exercise fatigue.

IV hydration treats these common symptoms by delivering fluids mixed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream. When vitamins and minerals are given via IV hydration, this enables the body to absorb 100% of the nutrients and promotes our body to feel better quickly and enhances our performance. When vitamins are taken orally, the body’s gastrointestinal tract may only absorb up to 20% of the vitamin’s potency. In some cases, vitamins can become inactive in the digestive tract, or the vitamins may not be absorbed at all due to improper intestinal functions. In short, to ensure you get the most proper amount of vitamins, getting IV hydration can be the quickest, most effective way to deliver critical fluids and nutrients to your body. IV hydration is one way to boost the body’s immune system and decrease the length of certain acute illnesses. IV therapy can also be used to reverse symptoms of dehydration or used as a proactive maintenance lifestyle.

Most people can get the necessary amount of vitamins and minerals their bodies need by eating a balanced diet of meat, fruit, vegetables, and grains. However, sometimes people who do all the right things, still do not get enough of the healthy nutrients their bodies need to function properly. People who need supplements are:
· Highly physically active individuals who do intensive athletic training on a regular basis
· People with food allergies or vegetarians
· Men and women who are wanting to maintain an active lifestyle
· Individuals who are recovering from an injury or acute illness
· Adults who are overworked and suffering from fatigue or exhaustion

If this describes you, our highly knowledgeable healthcare professionals can get you on a proper and complete vitamin and mineral supplement regimen that will improve your overall health. Our specially formulated IV hydration treatments are packed with vitamins, electrolytes, and amino acids. All IV therapy sessions are administered by licensed medical providers.

FAQ on IV hydration therapy

  • Water Soluble Vitamins: 
    Vitamin B and Vitamin C
    These types of vitamins enter the body, but they are passed very quickly. Nutrients like thiamine, niacin, and biotin are B and C vitamins, and your body needs them to maintain a healthy immune system and keep your nerves and cells healthy.
  • Fat Soluble Vitamins: 
    Vitamins A, D, E, and K
    These vitamins do not pass through your body as quickly as water soluble ones do. Your body instead stores them in your cells and liver for later use.
  • Minerals: 
    Calcium, zinc, and iron
    These are elements that your body needs to function properly. Minerals do everything from helping you to build stronger bones to increasing the efficiency of your nervous system. Your body needs these nutrients to function at a high level.

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy involves the insertion of a small IV catheter into a vein for the purpose of administering IV fluids, medications, and other additives. Nutrients via IV route are absorbed immediately because they are administered straight into the bloodstream bypassing the gastrointestinal system. While oral supplements are effective for a variety of health conditions, there might be times when you need a larger dose of certain vitamins and minerals to get immediate effects. IV therapy does just that, it gives you the quickest delivery method at large doses to meet your individualized needs. IV treatment improves the overall health by providing your cells with 100% supplements it needs. Additionally, IV nutritional therapy can also prevent illness, get relief in case of hangover, enhance your beauty, and fasten athletic recovery.

The IV therapy process is painless and easy. Our patients fill out a health profile form, then we help you choose from a menu of infusions. We always tailor the ingredients to your needs. Once a “cocktail” has been chosen, our healthcare provider attaches the bag of IV fluids to your arm through an ultrathin catheter tube. You’ll relax in our comfortable infusion room for about 30-60 minutes as the treatment takes effect.

Getting vitamins from food or oral supplements is great, but it’s often harder for the body to absorb those nutrients effectively. Intravenous (IV) therapy uses nature’s most powerful ingredients to enhance your health rapidly. IV therapy delivers beneficial nutrients directly into your body’s tissue ensuring 100% absorption for maximum benefit. IV therapy boosts the immune system, rejuvenates skin, restores hormones, promotes weight loss, removes toxins, and much more!

Factors such as age, health conditions, metabolism, genetics, and even the environment can all affect the body’s ability to keep nutrients and vitamins at sufficient levels. IV therapy is an excellent stand-alone or supplemental treatment for a variety of health benefits. You might need IV therapy if you have:

  • Dehydration
  • Illness (flu, cold, and other illnesses)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Aging skin
  • Chronic pain
  • Poor immune system function

Every physiological function such as digestion, waste elimination, thermoregulation, and joint lubrication requires adequate hydration. Staying hydrated can be difficult for many due to various reasons. Common symptoms of dehydration are typically increased thirst, dry skin, dry mouth, constipation, lightheadedness/dizziness, decreased urination or dark colored urine, headache, irritability, loss of appetite and nausea.

Remember that by the time you are thirsty you’re already dehydrated. The sensation of thirst is believed to kick in when you’re about 1% dehydrated. In other words, you’ve lost 1% of your body mass (in water). When you’re severely dehydrated, you need to replenish a lot more fluids. These fluids will also need to be balanced with the nutrients that your body usually contains. Typically, your body can alleviate mild dehydration in 45 minutes with oral intake of 20.3 oz (600ml) of water. The amount of time it takes for your body to rehydrate mainly depends on how dehydrated you are. Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy provides a direct infusion of vitamins into the bloodstream, where they can be directly absorbed by the body for maximum effect and reverse dehydration quickly.

Patients taking certain prescriptions medications should avoid IV therapy. Individuals with a history of kidney failure or heart disease and those who are pregnant, or breast feeding should use caution when considering intravenous (IV) hydration treatments. Other conditions include pulmonary edema or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), abnormal potassium level, and epilepsy. Our experienced healthcare providers will evaluate your health history and determine if IV therapy is right for you. It is extremely important that each patient provides their full medical history, as that will help to identify any risks. If you are pregnant, we will need approval from your OBGYN provider before we can administer IV fluids.

Treatment times vary, but a good estimate is around 30-60 minutes for 1,000mL of fluid. Additives in your intravenous (IV) therapy may require slower drip speeds for maximum efficiency and comfort.

To get credible information as for intravenous (IV) therapy side effects, you should consult with a healthcare provider for details. Some of the potential side effects may include:

  • Infection at the injection site
  • Rashes
  • Vein inflammation and bruising

Various side effects from the prescribed vitamins themselves can also happen. To avoid these side effects, it’s important to share with our healthcare providers about any previous reactions, and your complete list of medications or supplements you take. Our healthcare provider will monitor you closely during your IV infusion. Complications like infection and air embolisms are rare.

Normal saline is one of the most common IV fluids and acts as a base in which vitamins and medication can be added to if necessary. IV therapy is much more than simply rehydration. Each vitamin and mineral have unique effects.

Vitamin injections are highly effective because they are administered via injection or intravenous (IV) therapy. The injection or IV route allows the vitamins to bypass the digestive system, making these vitamins more bioavailable for immediate use. In addition, vitamin injections and vitamin IV infusion are of a higher quality than oral vitamins because tablets are formulated with binders, fillers, and other materials. Additionally, the oral formula often reduces the quality of vitamins considerably. With vitamin injections, you will experience better, more significant results quickly because you’re giving your body the nutrients directly through the bloodstream.
