In this post, we will be going over why this has some massive health benefits and who would benefit the most from this treatment.

The cure to many simple ailments is dehydration, headaches, exhaustion, dizziness, dry mouth and confusion are all symptoms of dehydration. If you find yourself with these symptoms on a regular basis then you may not be consuming enough liquids or your body may not be absorbing the minerals it needs to stay hydrated. Blood is mostly water and your body is made up of 60% blood, when there isn’t enough water in your body, the levels of blood also drop. When you have less blood in your body then your heart has to work harder to pump what is left around the body.

If your heart has to work harder you’ll be short of breath and at increased risk of more serious symptoms. You want to make sure your heart is as healthy as possible which is where IV Hydration Therapy comes in.

IV Hydration Therapy

What is IV hydration treatment?

Hydration therapy is a simple treatment that involves delivering fluids directly into your bloodstream through a small IV in your arm. The fluids may also include vitamins, electrolytes, antioxidants and even medication in the mix. The benefit of doing this via an IV drip is that it goes straight into the bloodstream. The body cannot absorb as many nutrients or vitamins through oral ingestion (for example via a pill or liquid consumption) so the IV drip is a much more direct route. By allowing fluids to circulate through your body, hydration therapy allows you to replenish your body’s liquid levels quickly without needing to orally drink lots of liquid.

Is IV Hydration treatment used often?

IV Hydration treatment has been around for many years. When you go to a hospital and you see an IV drip next to someone then they’re probably on a hydration therapy. This is very common as most IV drips contain a Saline solution, “Saline, made up of water and sodium chloride, serves as a delivery system for the other components of your IV therapy. Saline also serves as a way to help hydrate the body.” – (

The ability to selectively schedule hydration therapy as an everyday person is a relatively new service. When you feel the need for fast hydration, you can just schedule an appointment online and get all the fluids your body needs.

Why do you need IV Hydration treatment?

You may be seeking IV Hydration treatment for a number of reasons. It could be a quick cure for a hangover, as the reason why you feel so bad is that you are dehydrated. Or maybe you are prone to migraines, some find it useful for athletic recovery, stress relief or as a way to rehydrate after a long flight, an illness or a hot day in the sun. In order to feel your best then you must be fully hydrated, so if you have a big day ahead then IV Hydration treatment may be a good way to start the day. This type of treatment really depends on the individual!

You might be dehydrated for a number of reasons:

  1. Too much alcohol: If you have had a night out and drank a lot the night before, then you will most likely be dehydrated.

  2. If you are ill with fever, vomiting or diarrhea then you are releasing a lot of liquids very quickly

  3. You’ve been on a long flight or a long drive and had not water available

  4. You just forget to drink! This happens more than you’d think.

Can I just drink lots of water?

If you gradually drink water then you will become hydrated again, but you can’t just quickly down lots of water to become fully hydrated again. If you drink large amounts of water too quickly, it can upset your digestive system and may even cause your sodium levels to drop to dangerous levels. If you’re dehydrated, IV fluids can get the job done more quickly and efficiently than drinking water.

What is in my IV Hydration Therapy bag and how long does it take?

A private IV Hydration Therapy session will only take around 30 to 40 minutes, you’ll normally get a private room with a comfortable seat and a TV. You just need to sit back and relax. When your treatment is done you’ll see benefits for 2 to 4 hours once it’s finished. Your IV Hydration bag will contain a cocktail of fluids that is customised to your needs. The fluids will contain vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and/or medication. For example, hydration therapy for athletic recovery may contain fluids, magnesium, vitamin B6, multivitamins and pain relief.
