Staying properly hydrated has long been considered one of the cornerstones of health and fitness. Many people find it difficult to drink the recommended 8+ glasses of water a day in order to maintain the correct level of hydration. Moreover, one strenuous workout or a single night of drinking alcohol can deplete your body’s hydration levels. When you drink a glass of water, it is slowly absorbed through the large intestine, and it can take time to replenish your body’s ideal hydration balance. IV therapy can help quickly and efficiently restore your body to the optimal level of hydration, leaving you feeling and looking fresh and energized.
IV hydration therapy involves the intravenous delivery of water, electrolytes, and sometimes additional vitamins and minerals, directly to the bloodstream. Since the therapy bypasses the digestive system, the fluids delivered are immediately absorbed by your body, rehydrating you quickly and safely. You will begin to feel the difference almost immediately, and will continue to feel additional benefits following the completion of the IV therapy. Vitamin and mineral supplements taken orally are only partially absorbed by the body after digestion, sometimes with as little as 40%-50% useful absorption. In contrast, adding vitamins and minerals to your IV therapy provides direct delivery to the bloodstream, ensuring that they are completely absorbed by the body.
Another benefit of bypassing the digestive system is the elimination of any nausea that would otherwise result from hydrating by drinking water, vitamins, or minerals. This makes IV hydration an ideal treatment for individuals experiencing any stomach upset, whether as the result of a hangover, chemotherapy, or any other illness.
IV Therapy Process
Your IV therapy will be administered by a professional, either at home via a mobile hydrating system, or in a spa-like setting dedicated to IV hydration. You may be asked several medical questions at the start of your treatment, including any allergies and current medications, and will have an opportunity to select any vitamin or mineral additions to the IV drip. Within around 45 minutes to an hour, your therapy will be complete, and you will begin to notice the difference!
IV hydration has been used not just to treat simple dehydration, but also by patients who suffer from migraines, fatigue, or vitamin absorption disorders. Many IV hydration clinics offer custom vitamin blends which can be selected to provide individuals with an IV hydrating treatment to address their specific concerns. Whether you would like to enjoy greater energy and mental clarity, stress reduction, or a beautiful healthy glow, there is a vitamin and mineral IV therapy for you.
The next time you are feeling dehydrated, low on energy, or high on stress, you may wish to consider IV therapy as a safe and effective way to hydrate and feel better quickly. Maintaining your ideal hydration level can have a great impact on your health and well-being. Research IV therapy options available in your area, and discuss any questions or concerns with the professionals on staff. With the right IV therapy, dehydration can be a thing of the past.
