IV treatment can be a source of stress for many patients visiting the hospital or doctor’s office. Even those with a fear or needles will discover that the experience is quite calming. In fact, IV therapy can be a relaxing and highly beneficial procedure. 

Whenever you get an IV treatment, an experienced Registered Nurse will set up the required equipment, insert the needle into your arm, and stay present throughout the treatment to ensure that you are comfortable. 

The nurse administering your IV therapy session will help to prepare you for what to expert, but an IV treatment is typically smooth sailing after this point.

Although IV lines are typically used in hospital rooms and doctor’s offices, IV therapy is also available as an outpatient treatment. There are numerous reasons to get an at-home IV therapy session, including getting much-needed nutrients supplied directly into your bloodstream. 

Through ivee, a Registered Nurse can come straight to your home and administer a tailor-made IV treatment to meet your specific needs.

Several of the IV bags offered by ivee are specifically designed to help restore fluid balance within your body. 

Dehydration can occur due to hangovers, illness, exhaustion, or other factors, and getting an IV treatment at home is a quick and practical way to rehydrate yourself.

So, how does rehydrating IV therapy work? Let’s find out.

 

Rehydrating IV Therapy: The Key Ingredients 

The overwhelming majority of IV bags contain several key ingredients. One of these ingredients is saline solution, a powerful hydrating agent that also serves as a vessel for other ingredients, carrying important nutrients as effectively as possible. 

IV bags designed for rehydration may also contain electrolytes. 

Electrolytes are essential minerals for your body’s overall health. They regulate muscle function, nerve signaling, and fluid balance, as well as numerous other functions within your body. Electrolytes include sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

Rehydrating IV bags may also include a combination of other vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function optimally. IV therapy formulas often include zinc, vitamin B12, vitamin C, glutathione, L-Carnitine, and Magnesium.

 

3 Reasons to Get an IV Treatment for Dehydration 

There are numerous circumstances and factors that can lead to dehydration. Below are three main causes of improper fluid levels within your body, all of which can be helped through the use of IV therapy.

 

Hangovers 

“Hangover” is an umbrella term for the symptoms that appear after consuming too much alcohol. Drinking too much tends to lead to hangover symptoms the day after consumption, and these symptoms can last for up to a full day. 

Common symptoms of hangovers include:

  • Being constantly thirsty
  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Trembling and shaking
  • Exhaustion
  • Irregular heart rate
  • Irritability
  • Trouble focusing
  • Sensitivity to stimuli, such as light and sound

One of the primary causes of hangovers is dehydration. Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it prompts urination. 

Going to the bathroom more often – as alcohol tends to make you do – can eventually lead to dehydration, which brings with it many of the symptoms associated with hangovers. 

In addition to dehydrating you, drinking too much alcohol can also lower your blood sugar, leading to symptoms like irritability, an upset stomach, and dizziness. 

The exhaustion that many people experience when hungover can be caused by a combination of dehydration, low blood sugar, and – as you might guess – staying up too late drinking.

If you’re struggling to get over a hangover, ivee’s Hangover Relief treatment is perfect for you. The rehydrating, refreshing formula contains Toradol, an anti-inflammatory agent, as well as saline solution, B-Complex vitamins, magnesium, vitamin C, and other beneficial ingredients.

Post-Workout Recovery

Working out intensely can deplete your body of fluids, especially if you aren’t filling up on water before, during, and after your exercise sessions. 

According to the University of Utah Health Department, anyone working out needs a cup of water at least four hours prior to exercise, 4-5 ounces of water every 10-15 minutes during workouts, and plenty of fluids after a workout. 

In many cases, being dehydrated can decrease athletic performance, which can cause problems for more than just competitive athletes. 

When dehydrated, your brain and body are not as effective at doing what you need them to do, which can decrease your ability to move fast, lift heavy objects, and stay engaged in exercise without getting exhausted. 

Workouts primarily cause dehydration through the release of sweat as you exert energy. Sweating excessively can deplete your body’s fluid levels, leaving you feeling tired and overworked. 

Since sweat is nearly unavoidable during intense workout sessions, it is essential to keep replenishing your fluid levels during workouts by drinking plenty of water. 

ivee’s Athletic Recovery IV treatment is designed to help repair your muscles and get you ready for your next workout. 

The Athletic Recovery formula includes a proprietary blend of amino acids, essential nutrients for muscle retention and metabolism. In addition, the treatment is saline-based, which makes it highly beneficial for fighting off dehydration. 

 

Fatigue 

43% of Americans feel too tired to do their jobs as well as possible – that’s a staggering statistic. If you’re one of those Americans, it’s very possible that you are not drinking enough water each day. Dehydration is one of the most common causes of fatigue, as is a lack of proper electrolyte intake. 

Dehydration can cause fatigue by lowering your blood pressure, which can decrease blood flow to your brain, making you feel tired. Lack of fluids can also increase the number of resources and energy that your body needs to exert to keep its systems running optimally. 

These changes to the way your body functions can make you feel grumpy, lethargic, and mentally foggy, making it difficult to effectively get work done – let alone stay awake. 

If you need an extra boost of mental energy, drinking water can be a huge help. In addition, you may benefit greatly from trying ivee’s Refresh treatment. The Refresh formula blends the amino acid L-Carnitine with B-Complex vitamins, vitamin C, and magnesium. The formula is saline-based, making use of the rehydrating solution to replenish your fluid levels and keep your body functioning as well as possible.
