What Is IV Hydration Therapy?

IV Hydration Therapy is a simple treatment created to deliver fluids directly into your bloodstream through a small IV inserted into your arm. These fluids usually include vitamins, electrolytes, antioxidants, and even certain medications, creating a “cocktail” of sorts. Since the fluids are injected intravenously, they can circulate quickly through your body, rapidly replenishing your body with fluids in a way that drinking just won’t cut it.

Who are the Best Candidates for IV Hydration Therapy?

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting IV Hydration Therapy in Cincinnati is to contact our clinic and schedule an appointment. When you arrive, you will be able to discuss with the Technician what you are trying to improve and they will be able to suggest the best IV Hydration Therapy cocktails for you. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have and give you an accurate cost for the treatment.

What to Expect on the Day of IV Hydration Therapy

This treatment works by creating a saline-based IV cocktail of vitamins and minerals, which will be administered via an IV drip that can take 30 to 60 minutes to complete. The IV will be inserted into the back of your hand or your elbow, where the IV Hydration Therapy cocktail will enter your bloodstream directly. By bypassing your digestive tract, you will be able to absorb nutrients more effectively and enjoy better results.

IV Hydration Therapy Recovery

Most of our patients can enjoy the results of this treatment within a few hours or days, depending on which vitamins and minerals are used for your IV Hydration Therapy. When you feel instant results, this can be contributed to the saline solution that makes the base of your therapy. Since most people are more dehydrated than they realize, the saline will instantly hydrate your body and perk you up.

After a few days, you will begin to notice the results of your body absorbing the vitamins and minerals in your IV treatment. Once these nutrients are in your bloodstream, your blood distributes them to other areas of your body, which will then support other bodily processes.

You can expect to feel the results of your IV Hydration Therapy for about two to three weeks. These effects are only temporary because your body will use all the nutrients and minerals to meet the needs of your body. Once they have been used up, your body will need those resources restored.
