What is IV hydration therapy?

IV Hydration therapy is a treatment that delivers fluids directly into your bloodstream through an IV catheter inserted in the arm. IV hydration therapy can include the administration of different saline solutions, vitamins, nutrients, electrolytes, and antioxidants. IV infusion is an effective treatment to replace lost fluids in a short period of time, especially if you are not able to drink enough fluids or drinking water has not corrected the fluid imbalance.

Is IV hydration therapy safe?

In the most recent years, there have been many IV drip lounges that have opened up across the united states. Some of these IV drip lounges are not run by medical professionals and may come with more risk. In general IV hydration therapy is a safe method to bypass the digestive system and obtain the necessary fluids, mineral, nutrients, that are needed to be replaced in a short duration of time.

There are also a few publications and ongoing clinical trials relating to its treatment of certain cancers.
  • Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 plays a variety of important roles in our bodies ranging from the formation of red blood cells, cell metabolism, the proper functioning of the nervious system as well as the production of DNA.
  • B complex: B vitamins help with energy levels, brain function, proper nerve function, metabolism, growth of cells, cell health, digestion, cardiovascular health and hormone and cholesterol production.
  • Vitamin D: Vitamin D is an important vitamin that has shown to help decrease the risk of certain infections, promote weight loss, help cognition and memory, promote weight loss, increase energy levels, promote better sleep, improve migraine headaches, increase bone strenght, improve mood and boost the immune system.
  • Amino Acids: Amino acids play a wide range of roles in our bodies. They are responsible in the breakdown of fats, energy production, building muscle, boosting immune system, regulating digestion, producing hormones, promoting weight loss and in regulating our mood.
  • Magnesium: Magnesium plays a very important role in our bodies. It is responsible for proper muscle and nervous system function, energy production, relaxation, sleep, relaxation, proper GI function and more.
  • NAD: NAD and its coenzyme NAD+ are through to improve cardiovascular health, boost energy levels, reduce inflammation, improve cognition and focus, improve memory and mental clarity, improve cardiovascular health, decrease withdrawal symptoms during detox, increase metabolism, and slow down the aging process.

Benefits if IV Therapy & IV Vitamin Therapy

  • Fast absorption of fluids and replacement of electrolytes
  • Bypassing the GI tract in cases where one is not able to hold down fluids
  • Hangover cure
  • Boost vitamin levels
  • Treat certain nutrient deficiencies

IV Therapy For The Cure of Hangover Symptoms

IV therapy for the cure of hangovers has become increasingly more popular in the last several years. Alcohol is a diuretic and thus causes our bodies to urinate more often and thus deplete fluid stores. In addition, excess alcohol intake can deplete certain electrolytes, vitamins and nutrients in our bodies. IV therapy with added electrolytes and vitamins can rehydrate lost fluids, electrolytes and vitamins and decrease the symptoms of a hangover.

IV Therapy to Relax and Decrease Anxiety Symptoms

One of the popular electrolytes that is provided through an intravenous administration is magnesium sulfate. Magnesium sulfate is one of the ingredients in a Myers cocktail but can be administered by itself as well. It is regularly used in the emergency room to treat asthma exacerbation, migraine headaches as well as for its calming effects and decreasing of anxiety symptoms. Magnesium sulfate acts on smooth muscles throughout the body and relaxes them by blocking calcium-mediated contraction and decreasing acetylcholine release from neuromuscular junctions. Magnesium also helps improve sleep and treat constipation.

IV Therapy for Cardiovascular Health

There are several ingredients in IV vitamin therapy that can promote better circulation as well as improve cardiovascular health. The main ingredients that help in this arena include calcium, amino acids, vitamin c and magnesium sulfate. Calcium regulates how blood vessels contract and dilate. There is a lot of research in regards to amino acids such as L-arginine and its benefits to promote vascular health through the generation of the gas nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes vasodialation of vessels and thus a decrease in blood pressure. Vitamin C has also been shown to improve nitric oxide production of the endothelial cells, which, in turn, increases vasodilation and decreases blood pressure.

IV Therapy for Detox & Removal of Free Radicals

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that boost immune system and promotes overall health and well-being. As a potent antioxidant it also helps remove and protect the body of free radicals before they can damage cells. Glutathione is another potent anti-oxidant that boosts the immune system, promotes overall health and removes free radicals. Alpha-Lipoic Acid is also a potent anti-oxidant that helps remove free radicals in addition to lowering blood sugars, promote weight loss, and decrease cholesterol.

IV Therapy for Increased Energy Levels

Certain vitamins and amino acids help to increase energy levels and combat fatigue. The B complex vitamins are known to boost energy levels and increase mood. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein molecules and assist the body in performing various functions. Certain branched-chain amino acids and essential amino acids such as Isoleucine are involved in our bodies muscle metabolism and immune function. They also helps our bodies produce proteins, growth hormones and regulate energy production.

IV Therapy for Weight Loss

Besides vitamin b12 and the b complex vitamins, there are certain amino acids that can promote weight loss. A combination of these amino acids is often referred to as a lipotropic injection. One such lipotropic injection consists of the amino acids L-methionine, Inositol & Choline.

IV Therapy for Weight Loss

L-methionine assists in the elimination of fat, lowering of cholesterol levels and boosting metabolism in our bodies.

Inositol has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and help in the breakdown of fats.

Choline plays an important role in the proper functioning of the liver and gallbladder, exporting of fat from the gallbladder and liver and the use of this fat for energy and proper metabolism.

Vitamin B12 plays a variety of roles in our bodies including the proper functioning of the brain, heart, and the nervous system. It also plays a vital role in fat metabolism.

B complex vitamins also play a vital role in our bodies. They help boost metabolism by releasing energy from carbohydrates and fat and helping the body convert food into energy.

Electrolytes lost in dehydration

Electrolytes play a key role in the proper functioning of our bodies. The main electrolytes consisting of sodium, potassium and calcium play a key role in muscle contractions, blood pressure, transmission of signals from nerves, cell function and fluid regulation.

Main electrolytes lost in dehydration

  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Chloride
  • Phosphate
  • Bicarbonate

Causes of Dehydration & Electrolyte Imbalances

  • Not drinking enough fluids
  • Loss of fluids through the GI tract ( Vomiting & Diarrhea)
  • Heat stroke or heat exhaustion
  • High fever
  • Intensive exercise
  • Excessive sweating
  • Medications causing water loss ( diuretics and laxatives)
  • Heart disease and heart failure
  • Adrenal & Kidney disease
  • Thyroid & Parathyroid disorders
  • Burns or tissue damage

Signs of Dehydration

There are many signs that one is dehydrated. We will discuss the most common signs and symptoms of dehydration that one will experience here.

Most common signs and symptoms of dehydration include:

  • Thirst – most common and important sign of dehydration
  • Dry mouth and mucous membranes
  • Dark and smelly urine
  • Sunken eyes
  • Dizziness and feeling of fainting
  • Muscle cramps and spasms
  • Headache
  • Decrease urine output
  • Decrease sweating
  • Dry skin
  • Skin that does not retract fast
  • Tachycardia
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Numbness & Tingling

If dehydration continues without fluid resuscitation and or rehydration, one can experience the following symptoms

  • Passing out or unconsciousness
  • Confusion
  • Irritability
  • Increased breathing rate
  • Arrhythmia’s & abnormal heart rhythm
  • Delirium
  • Kidney stones and kidney failure
  • Seizures
  • Electrolyte imbalances

Types of Hydration Therapy

There are 4 main types of IV fluids. These include normal saline, half normal saline, lactated ringers, and dextrose solution. Osmosis is an important transport process that occurs in our bodies. It is the process in which solvent molecules move through a semipermeable membrane from a more dilute solution to a more concentrated solution. Osmosis and osmotic pressures play a key role in IV fluid therapy, our cells and our body.

IV fluids are either crystalliods or colloids. A crystalloid or colloid solution can also be hypotonic, isotonic or hypertonic. These different solutions are used at different times depending on the situation and the reason for treatment.

Colloid solutions contain larger molecules and thus remain intravascular or in the vessels instead of entering cells. Colloid solutions are used as plasma expanders and thus the preferred fluid resuscitation method in severe dehydration cases.

Crystalloids solutions contain small molecules that cross the semi-permeable membranes and thus used to increase fluid volume and intravascular space.

Main types of IV Fluid’s explained

Normal Saline: It’s a crystalloid fluid that is generally isotonic. It’s the most commonly used fluid because it can be used in a variety of conditions. It’s the fluid of choice for fluid resuscitation and extremely effective in treating most hydration needs due to blood loss, vomiting, diarrhea, or systemic shock.

Half Normal Saline: Half normal saline is another popular saline fluid. It’s often referred to as 45% normal saline or 0.45NaCl. It’s a hypotonic, crystalloid solution of sodium chloride dissolved in sterile water. Half normal saline as the name suggests, contains half the chloride concentration of normal saline.

Lactated Ringers: Lactated Ringer’s is another common intravenous fluid that is used in rehydration and fluid resuscitation. It is commonly used during or after injuries or surgery.

Dextrose: There are a variety of variations with dextrose as part of the ingredients. Dextrose is a type of simple sugar made from corn. It’s chemically identical to glucose and administered when someone is in need for sugar as a source of energy.

Main versions of dextrose solutions include:

  • Dextrose in water
  • Dextrose in saline
  • Dextrose in Lactated Ringer’s

Isotonic, Hypotonic and Hypertonic Solutions

Isotonic solutions have the same solute concentration as our cells and thus there is no concentration gradient that causes the inflow or outflow of fluids into cells.

Hypotonic solutions have solute concentrations that our lower than our cells and thus water will flow past membranes and into cells and cause expansion of the cells.

Hypertonic solutions have solute concentrations that are higher than out cells and thus water will flow past membranses and out of cells and cause our cells to shrink.

Our physicians are very well versed in IV hydration therapy and thus will make the correct decision which hydration therapy is correct for you.
