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.
