IV Hydration Q&A

What are the benefits of IV hydration therapy?

Even if you follow a perfect diet filled with just the right portions from all food groups, you’re likely still missing certain nutrients or not getting enough of them. You may take an oral supplement, like a multivitamin, to make up the difference. But these supplements have to go through extensive digestive processes and can get destroyed along the way.

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy has been used in emergency room and hospital settings for decades. Why? Because it delivers nutrients in their simplest form directly into your bloodstream. This way, nutrients start circulating instantly so cells get the support they need to function.

IV hydration therapy is beneficial for healthy adults. It’s especially important for anyone suffering from a digestive disorder, such as Crohn’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome, since you may have malabsorption issues and a risk of nutrient deficiencies.

Why do I need IV hydration therapy?

At MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center, IV hydration therapy is an ideal solution for optimizing your health and improving your hydration status. The team of clinicians has intensive care unit (ICU) and ER experience, so they can help cater your infusion to your specific health goals.

You may need IV hydration therapy if you have any of the following ailments:

  • Dehydration, including a hangover
  • Migraine or chronic headaches
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Flu or cold symptoms

How long does IV hydration therapy take?

When you visit MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center for your IV hydration therapy session, you sit and talk with your dedicated practitioner about your concerns. Once the two of you decide on your ideal IV treatment, they place an IV line into your arm.

In most cases, the entire drip takes anywhere from 20-40 minutes to complete. During this time, you can lie back and read, work on your tablet or phone, or even take a nap.
