IV Hydration Therapy by Dr. V

Before getting into hydration, detox, hangovers and IV hydration therapy, dehydration itself needs to be addressed.

  • The primary cause of daytime fatigue is lack of fluid intake.
  • In the US 35% of the populations confuses thirst for hunger
  • Even mild dehydration can slow your metabolism down as much as 3%
  • Chronic dehydration effects 75% of people in the US

The ideal daily fluid intake suggested by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is 3.7L (about 15.5 cups) for men and 2.7L (about 11.5 cups) for women.  This covers the anticipated needs of a healthy, sedentary adult.  Day to day fluid intake varies amongst people, however, depending on activity level, age, gender, and possible medical conditions. As a result, if you are breastfeeding or pregnant or are especially physically active, you will likely need to increase your daily fluid intake beyond the recommended amount.

Physically active people who don’t drink enough daily fluids run into the common problem of dehydration.  More often than not, this happens unexpectedly.  When your body does not get the basic amount of fluids dehydration occurs, with it several symptoms such as; confusion, dizziness, elevated heart rate, fatigue, headache, and nausea. Generally, you can maintain hydration during the day by consuming water.  Though, fluids can be sourced through other beverages along with food.

Now, Let’s Talk IV Hydration Therapy

Whether you have been out in the sun, had an intense workout or you had a few too many drinks the night before – it is important to stay hydrated. By consuming fluids throughout the day you help maintain normal body function as well as generally feeling better.

Maintaining hydration can be challenging when you are not feeling well, particularly if you are sleeping more often or feeling nauseous.  Having an illness, or medical condition places more demands on your bodies resources which can lead to dehydration faster.

Electrolytes are minerals found in the body and are key to maintaining ideal muscle function, balanced pH levels of blood and much more.  When you sweat electrolytes are unsurprisingly lost.  Minerals are replenished every day by consuming beverages, food, or supplements as the body does not generate electrolytes itself.

IV Hydration Therapy consists of a combination of electrolytes and IV fluids that rapidly aid in relieving the aforementioned dehydration symptoms and allow you to feel refreshed and revitalized.  The therapy session normally takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes in a sterilized, clean and comfortable atmosphere.  In order to ensure an effortless, enjoyable and safe IV Hydration Therapy session, physicians and trained medical staff are on site.  Generally, IV Hydration Therapy is an uncomplicated and safe technique; it best performed, however in a sterilized environment by trained medical professionals.  There are few, if any, side effects experienced by patients receiving IV Hydration Therapy.
