IV Hydration Therapy
Are you feeling dehydrated?
Contact us today to schedule your vitamin hydration therapy in our Beverly Hills office or your home or hotel.
We provide IV Vitamin therapy to treat dehydration and give a boost to the body. Patients can become dehydrated from nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, excess exercise, alcohol consumption and more.
When does dehydration occur?
Dehydration occurs when the body loses more fluid than it takes in. Water dehydration means that more water is moving away from cells than is being delivered to cells, which can be fatal if not addressed.
An IV for dehydration is the preferred method of fast dehydration treatment. IV hydration therapy can reduce the severity of symptoms related to dehydration, like dry mouth, sleepiness, dizziness, decreased urination, little to no skin elasticity, confusion, irritability, and low blood pressure - just to name a few. IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles provides IV hydration with normal saline as well as with IV Vitamins.
IV for Dehydration
There are several reasons for why the body may become dehydrated. Performing a physical activity without drinking enough water could force you to require an IV for dehydration. Dehydration treatment may also be required if you drink alcohol in excess, or if you suffer from a medical symptom like diarrhea or vomiting.
How can you tell if you are dehydrated?
Dehydration is considered so dangerous because it sneaks up on victims. Contrary to what people might think, dehydration can occur in cold weather just the same as hot weather, and thirst is not always a strong indicator of dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration can range from thirst to dizziness, fatigue, weakness, kidney pain, lightheadedness, headache and more. Perhaps the best way to gauge how hydrated you are is by observing the color of your urine. The darker the urine, the more dehydrated you are. As you rehydrate, your urine will lighten in color.
An IV for dehydration is one of the best and fastest ways to treat dehydration and replace lost electrolytes. You may not realize this, but there is such a thing as too much water. In fact, if you over hydrate the body with water too fast, you risk depleting the body of sodium - or salt - too quickly, which is dangerous.
Sodium is removed from the body in urine, so the more you urinate, the more you lose, and the more water you drink, the more you urinate. With a dehydration treatment in the form of IV hydration therapy, nutrients are delivered directly to the bloodstream where they can be delivered to all the parts of the body where they are needed the most.
IV Vitamin Therapy
IV vitamin therapy has existed in modern form since the 1970s. Based on the idea that nutrients administered to the human body via direct injection into the bloodstream were more potent and effective than nutrients consumed orally in pill form - and even more effective than nutrients consumed in the form of food - IV vitamin therapy remains a preferred method for many to significantly increase vitamin levels in the body.
IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles
If you have never had an IV vitamin therapy session, we are more than sure that you will enjoy the experience. After a consultation with a physician you will be prescribed one or more of the many nutrients that we make available for intravenous injection. As an upscale, boutique style medical office, we pride ourselves on the quality of our nutrients, which is why we only supply our patients with nutrients made from some of the finest ingredients that the medical industry has to offer.
How is IV Vitamin hydration therapy performed?
There is little to no discomfort associated with IV vitamin therapy. In most cases the only discomfort that patients report, if any at all, is the pin prick of a needle at the injection site. Once the injection is made, an IV vitamin therapy session for dehydration can take 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the amount of nutrients prescribed.
During that time, patients can choose to rest or work remotely in our quiet, modernly designed medical office. We also offer a concierge house call service which allows patients the chance to receive IV vitamin therapy in the comfort and privacy of their own home or office. Contact IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles today to schedule a session.
