When a person becomes dehydrated, they are not only losing fluids. Their body also experiences a deficit of electrolytes — such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium — which are essential minerals your body needs to function properly. When a person is dehydrated, they experience headaches, dizziness, confusion, nausea, muscle cramps, fatigue, and rapid breathing, among other uncomfortable symptoms. While it could be harmful to anyone, the condition can be especially dangerous in children and senior citizens.
IV hydration therapy is an effective form of treatment for individuals undergoing a wide range of ailments — such as infections, diabetes, kidney disease, cystic fibrosis, and cancer. This is especially the case when such health conditions are causing you to experience vomiting, diarrhea, and/or excessive sweating. It’s also an effective form of treatment for women who have become dehydrated due to morning sickness during pregnancy.
Receiving hydration therapy through an IV ensures the electrolytes reach your bloodstream at a much faster rate than if you drank fluids. This results in faster relief from symptoms, as well as recovery.
We offer several options for IV hydration and wellness therapy. The most common include full-body hydration, vitamin B complex energy-boosting, B12 shots, weight loss injections, and enhancements to your immune system.
In addition to treatment, our nurse practitioners can discuss with you the different ways you can modify your diet to maximize electrolyte intake — typically through a nutritious diet consisting mostly of whole foods. This provides you with more control over your long-term health.
