How Does IV Therapy Work? 

You may have experienced some form of IV therapy in the past. Doctors use IVs for medicine and blood transfusions. However, IV therapy isn't just for the hospital. We offer IV therapy to help you reach and maintain optimal health. IVs can deliver hydration, electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals. IVs have an advantage over pills because they deliver hydration and nutrition directly to the bloodstream. When nutrients are delivered this way, the body can start using these substances right away instead of waiting for them to pass through the digestive system. 

 The Dangers of Dehydration 

In today's busy world, it's easy to neglect basic self-care, including hydration. Dehydration keeps you from performing your best. For example, one of the most common symptoms of chronic dehydration is tiredness. That tiredness can impact every area of your life including home, work, and everything in between. You may also experience symptoms like dizziness, dry skin, and more. More serious dehydration symptoms include fainting and confusion. 

Dehydration isn’t all about drinking water. You can drink the recommended amount of water per day and still experience the symptoms of dehydration. That's because hydration isn't just about fluids. You also need to make sure that you have enough electrolytes. Sports drinks can help, but they have their own issues. For one, they don’t always deliver enough electrolytes to hydrate you. They also come loaded with sugar and other chemicals. IV therapy can deliver what your body needs without any of the drawbacks of overconsuming sports drinks.
