IV Hydration

What is IV Hydration? Intravenous therapy is a minimally invasive medical technique that administers fluids, medications and nutrients directly into a person’s vein via a small catheter; bypassing the digestive system for maximum absorption.

What is it used for?

It can be used to combat a host of ailments from dehydration to complicated disease processes.  Overall, IV therapy helps to improve health and well-being with minimal side effects.

IV hydration is becoming more popular among the general public and is easily accessible.  You can find IV hydration clinics out in the community; the most popular service is concierge services, where they come to you!

If you are suffering from dehydration, fatigue, illness, or the effects of alcohol; etc, IV therapy is beneficial for you.  While it doesn’t replace the importance of drinking water; one of the great benefits is how essential it is in support of normal body functions.

Some of the IV therapy  benefits:

-          Increased energy

By rehydrating your body, the cells are receiving what they need to properly function and elevate your natural energy level.

 

-          Immunity support

A blend of vitamins, minerals and fluids, can help fight against infection, improve healing time and give the immune system added support. In addition, IV hydration can speed up the body's natural detoxification process in removing harmful toxins.

 

-          Quick recovery

During an intense workout your body is being pushed physically, often sweating out fluids and using your body's energy reserves. IV hydration aids to replenish and revive your muscles, and a faster recovery time.

 

-          Hangover relief

Alcohol is a diuretic, so those who consume alcohol tend to urinate more which causes your body to lose nutrients and become dehydrated.  Although IV therapy does not “cure” a hangover, it does help alleviate the residual effects of it. Such as; headaches, nausea and overall body aches.

-          Healthy skin

Another positive benefit is the improvement of the skin. When your body is hydrated with essential nutrients, one will notice that healthy glow. This process helps to restore the skin from the inside out by removing free radicals.
