Intravenous (IV) Fluid Hydration
IV fluid hydration is a treatment most commonly used in hospitals to treat severely dehydrated patients. The treatment involves the insertion of an IV (intravenous line) into the patient’s arm. Then, rehydrating fluids will be injected into the IV line and circulate directly into the patient’s bloodstream.
Doctors use IVs for rehydration because they allow the fluids to go directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the wait time that occurs when you drink fluids. IV fluids usually also include electrolytes which also help to speed up the recovery time and replenish the body’s fluid supply.
When Do You Need IV Fluid Hydration?
IV fluids are usually used in cases of severe dehydration. For example, children who contract the flu may end up losing fluids from diarrhea and vomiting. If the dehydration is severe enough, it may be safer to rehydrate via IV, as opposed to drinking lots of fluids.
Dehydration isn’t just a problem in children, though. It can happen in adults, too.
Mild dehydration can cause an increased desire to drink, headaches, light-headedness, nausea, and fatigue. If the dehydration gets bad enough, it can lead to unconsciousness, so it’s important to keep track of your fluid intake throughout the day.
Immune Booster IV hydration
Healthy nutrition is essential for maintaining a strong immune system. Although a well-balanced diet can provide you with many necessary vitamins and minerals, the ability to absorb nutrients from food decreases with age.
Taking vitamin supplements is not always sufficient, since only a limited amount can be processed by the body. What’s more, supplements can be harmful if taken in high doses.
The best way to make sure you’re getting all the nutrients you need is immune boost IV therapy. IV immune boosters are specifically designed to support your immune system with valuable vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
These nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream. Because immune booster infusion completely bypasses the digestive system, no nutrients will be lost as they break down in your body.
Taking immune boosters intravenously can help with:
- Increasing your energy levels
- Combatting tiredness and fatigue
- Restoring hydration
- Preventing seasonal illnesses
- Accelerating recovery from cold and flu
- Preparing your body for medical procedures
- Relieving seasonal allergies
- Healing wounds
- Recovery from injuries.
