Our bodies need water to survive. Yet there are times in life when sweating, urinating, vomiting, consuming alcohol, or experiencing diarrhea can cause fluid loss. Becoming dehydrated does not just mean the body has lost water, it also indicates a loss of electrolytes, which are necessary to perform basic bodily functions such as moving, breathing, digestion, thinking clearly, and a host of other actions that are necessary for the body to stay up and running.
Nutrient IV therapy is an effective dehydration remedy that works quickly to restore optimal hydration levels. We offer Liquivida Hydration therapy as an ideal solution to improve hydration throughout the body and skin so that patients can feel their best. This is a sodium chloride injection that is a valuable source of both water and electrolytes. Sodium and chloride are two of the main electrolytes your body needs.
A dehydration IV pumps fluid and electrolytes directly into the bloodstream so the body can use the fluid and electrolytes right away. This helps to stabilize a person that is dehydrated immediately, restoring them to normal electrolyte and hydration levels.
Compared to oral mineral supplements, which take a while to work and may result in many of the nutrients being digested before the body has a chance to absorb them, nutrient IV drips ensure all of the nutrients reach the bloodstream. By introducing vitamins, amino acids, and minerals directly into the bloodstream, it is a fast-acting way to improve bodily hydration.
Dehydration is usually the result of one or more of the following factors:
Dehydration is often easy to detect. A person that is dehydrated may quickly notice unusual symptoms that indicate low water levels. Along with a sense of fatigue and generally not feeling well, mild to moderate symptoms of dehydration tend to include dry mouth, headache, feeling thirsty, less frequent urination, concentrated or dark urine, dry skin, dizziness, constipation, and lightheadedness.
These bodily changes can strike rapidly upon becoming dehydrated. People that notice these changes should suspect dehydration, particularly when they have one or more of the dehydration causes listed in the section above.
The body needs water and electrolytes to survive. Mild dehydration may simply cause a person to feel sluggish and unwell, while extreme dehydration can prove deadly. Untreated dehydration can result in cramps, severe exhaustion, kidney failure, coma, and other serious medical conditions.
In addition to water, the body needs electrolytes to thrive. Electrolytes are minerals that have an electric charge. This electric charge produces energy that cells need to function optimally. Some of the main types of electrolytes include sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. As minerals, electrolytes come from the food that we eat and drink.
Electrolytes must be maintained and balanced in order for the body to function effectively. Electrolyte levels can be measured in blood tests. Low electrolytes or an electrolyte imbalance have an overall negative impact on vital body systems, causing a host of mental and physical concerns.
These symptoms can range from mild to moderate, depending on the severity of the electrolyte imbalance the patient is experiencing. If left untreated, seizures may result from prolonged or severe electrolyte loss. Electrolytes are mainly lost through perspiration and urination.
At Pryor Health, we offer customized Liquivida IV kits that are designed to address your individual concerns. After discussing your symptoms, our injection specialist selects the optimal Liquivida ingredient mixture to improve your particular condition.
A fast, relatively painless injection into the arm delivers the nutrients the body needs to work at peak performance. There is no downtime, so patients can go about their day as usual after the treatment is performed.
Drinking plenty of water and consuming electrolyte supplements are among the best ways to restore hydration within the body. However, illness, exhaustion from rigorous physical activity, and alcohol-induced dehydration can restrict the body’s water supply and may require emergency dehydration treatments such as an IV drip to rapidly restore water levels and electrolytes.
You are invited to book a treatment at Pryor Health where we offer a full range of Surgical, Medspa and Wellness services to take years off of your appearance. We are known for our results and care of our patients.
