Benefits of Hydration Therapy
Staying hydrated is critical to feeling great and maintaining good health
and people often don’t realize how dehydrated they really are. Whether
you had a late night of drinking, are recovering from a bad stomach bug,
or have a painful migraine, there are several health benefits to hydration
therapy. In fact, if you have ever gone to an emergency room, chances
are you were given hydrating fluids in some form or fashion.
Hydration therapy rapidly replenishes fluids in your body in ways that
drinking water can’t. A small IV is inserted in your arm so that
fluids can be delivered directly into your bloodstream for immediate hydration.
If you try to drink water, it may take several hours to rehydrate (depending
on how dehydrated you are) because your large intestine absorbs most of
the water. Another benefit of hydration therapy is that additional medicine,
electrolytes, vitamins and antioxidants can be added to the basic fluids
if you aren’t feeling well.
