5 Reasons to Consider IV Hydration

5 Reasons to Consider IV Hydration

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy is a favorite of celebrities who need to look and feel their best to maintain their high-profile and stressful careers. Everyone from Adele to Chrissy Teigen to Jane Fonda, John Legend, and the Kardashians have dipped into the “drip.”

Why do celebrities hook themselves up to an IV cocktail of fluids, vitamins, and minerals? An IV infusion delivers nutrients and hydration directly into your bloodstream so that your body receives maximal and instant benefits. In contrast, if you take the same ingredients by mouth, your body takes time to process them, and you lose some to digestion, too.

If you’re a Star Trek fan, you may remember an alien race describing humans as “ugly bags of mostly water.” That’s an accurate description: About 60% of your body is water. In fact, your lungs are 83% water, your brain and heart are 73% water, and your skin is 64% water. 

When that water is depleted, you are, too. Even if you’re not aware of being dehydrated, your body craves fluids as well as essential vitamins and minerals.

At Enrich Family Practice in Odessa, Texas, our nurse practitioners recommend IV hydration for both medical and nonmedical reasons. An IV infusion is a fast and effective way to supply your body with the ingredients it needs to heal and thrive.

Should you consider an IV hydration treatment? The following offers five reasons you should.

1. You need to recover

An IV infusion instantly rehydrates your cells that have been stressed and depleted by illness, dehydration, or another stressful event. Rather than downing sports drinks (filled with sugar or artificial sweeteners), an IV treatment provides fluids and nutrients directly to your bloodstream so that your body can instantly use them. 

A faster recovery means you can return to the life you love faster and more revitalized. You can use IV hydration to recover from:

In addition, if you’re battling a chronic or acute illness, IV hydration supports your body as it fights for health. Some medical professionals recommend IV hydration to aid in recovery from serious illnesses, including stroke and cancer treatments.

2. You want to resolve pain

Fibromyalgia is a chronic and diffuse pain condition that can make everyday life difficult to manage. Because it isn’t doesn’t have a central location, fibromyalgia can be challenging to treat.

However, by infusing your cells with glutathione, which helps them produce energy and vitamins and minerals, an IV infusion helps your body heal the tissues that cause pain. 

3. You need a boost in mood and energy

Whether you suffer from chronic fatigue or a mental health issue such as depression or anxiety, an IV infusion gives you energy and elevates your mood. Your brain needs fluids and minerals to transmit signals that keep your body functioning at a high level.

After your IV infusion, you feel an immediate increase in your energy. You notice benefits such as better focus and a lighter, calmer mood.

4. You want to turn back the clock

An IV hydration treatment instantly plumps up dry, sagging skin with the fluids it needs to maintain depth and strength. You notice wrinkles smoothing out directly after your treatment.

But because IV treatments supply your cells with energy sources, such as glutathione and nutrients, your skin and other organs get a burst of rejuvenation. You look and feel younger with regular IV hydration treatments because your skin and other organs can function more youthfully, too.

5. You need to heal your body

We customize the vitamins and minerals in your IV cocktail to address the issues that your body is dealing with. Whether you have a thyroid disorder or musculoskeletal pain, we help you feel balanced and healthy again.
