Hydration Therapy Q & A

What is hydration therapy?

While you can get the hydration and nutrients you need through drinking water and eating a healthy diet, most people don’t. Hydration therapy offers a little help when it comes to getting the proper amount of fluids, vitamins, and minerals you need for optimal health and function.

During hydration therapy, you receive a mixture of fluids and nutrients intravenously. The combination nourishes and detoxifies your body.

Why is IV hydration superior?

Receiving hydration and nutrients intravenously is superior to oral methods of delivery. You receive nutrients faster than any other method. The nutrients go straight to your bloodstream and don’t have to pass through your gastrointestinal tract where they may not be fully absorbed and are delayed in their effects. Hydration therapy helps your cells and organs function at their best.

Why should I consider IV therapy?

Hydration therapy offers numerous benefits to your overall health and well-being. Consider hydration therapy to achieve:

  • Recovery from a night out
  • Greater energy
  • Faster vitamin and mineral absorption
  • Healthier skin
  • Stronger immunity
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Improved mood
  • Less chronic pain
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Improved allergy and asthma symptoms
  • Better sleep

Receiving hydration therapy is a relaxing experience, too. After your IV is inserted, you can read, play on your phone, watch a movie, or nap as you receive the fluids.

Who is a candidate for hydration therapy?

Men and women feeling fatigued, run-down, overstressed, or just not like themselves are candidates for the therapy. Athletes and people with autoimmune conditions also often feel a great benefit from hydration therapy, as do individuals with migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Hydration therapy can also be an effective hangover cure.
