What Is IV Hydration Therapy?


By Michael Kittle, RN, Select Care PLLC

You’ve probably been told many times that it’s important to stay hydrated as not getting enough fluids can cause all sorts of health problems. Staying hydrated usually means drinking plenty of water and other fluids. But now, hydration IV therapy offers a much better way to get your fluids. Active, health-conscious people are discovering that the benefits of hydration IV therapy outweigh the benefits of drinking lots of water. Here are a few of the key benefits hydration IV therapy delivers:

IV Hydration Is More Effective!
Drinking fluids is actually not an efficient way to stave off dehydration. When you drink from a water bottle after a workout, the tissues in your throat and along your digestive tract absorb most of the liquid. But, all of the tissues in your body need to be hydrated. That’s the reason you have to drink a lot of water to sufficiently hydrate yourself. Hydration IV therapy injects the fluids directly into your bloodstream so your body can deliver the fluids where you need them most. It’s a faster, more efficient way to hydrate your body.

Flushes Toxins!
Dehydration affects your body in many different ways. It can lead to problems with your digestive tract, like constipation. It can damage your liver and kidneys and allow toxins to build up in your system. Hydration IV therapy flushes your body with clean fluids and helps improve the functioning of your vital organs. IV therapy allows your liver and kidneys to do their jobs more efficiently. Your kidneys and liver work to filter out toxins in your body and then eliminate those toxins. Drinking fluids often is too slow to allow your organs to get rid of all of the toxins that have built up. IV therapy quickly delivers the fluids in the proper amounts to all of your vital organs.

Improves Skin, Joint and Muscle Health!

Our bodies are made up of between 55 percent and 60 percent water. When we are dehydrated, we immediately feel the effects. But, the signs of dehydration are more than just being thirsty. Dry skin, joint pain, and muscle aches are also signs of inadequate hydration. However, getting enough liquids to these trouble areas is a real challenge if you are only drinking fluids. Hydration IV therapy will rapidly improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles. The powerful influx of fluids and nutrients flushes toxins from these areas and restores them to full health. Hydration IV therapy helps you look and feel healthier, so you can always be at your best.
