IV Hydration Therapy Q&A

What is IV hydration therapy?

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy is one of the med spa treatments available at Blake GI Med Spa Services. Taking a holistic approach to health, the team offers many therapies to improve overall wellness and well-being.

Water is essential to life and is in every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. Adults need at least 64 ounces of fluid a day to maintain adequate hydration. However, most people fail to meet their daily fluid needs.

Even mild dehydration affects health and well-being and may be the reason you feel so tired or hungry. An inadequate intake of fluid may also lead to health problems like constipation, hemorrhoids, or headaches.

IV hydration therapy at Blake GI Med Spa Services delivers fluids directly into your bloodstream for instant rehydration. 

When you’re not feeling like your usual self, IV hydration therapy may be the treatment you need. 

Am I a candidate for IV hydration therapy?

Almost everyone is a candidate for IV hydration therapy. The Blake GI Med Spa Services team takes a holistic approach to health and wellness, conducting comprehensive evaluations to determine what wellness therapies can help you achieve your health goals. 

Some of the health issues and conditions that benefit from IV hydration therapy include:

  • Rehydration following airline travel
  • Recovery after a recent illness
  • Ease of muscle aches and pain after an intense workout
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Recovery from a hangover

The team may also recommend IV hydration therapy if you’re struggling to drink enough fluids to ease constipation or to rehydrate your body after a bout of vomiting or diarrhea. 

The gastro med spa may also suggest IV hydration therapy to help manage symptoms or side effects from a gastrointestinal disorder, such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

What can I expect during IV hydration therapy?

You can expect a relaxed spa experience during your IV hydration therapy at Blake GI Med Spa Services. 

After getting comfortable in the therapy room, your wellness provider inserts an IV line in your arm and starts your infusion. 

The length of your IV hydration therapy depends on your current hydration status and health needs but may take up to an hour. You can expect a boost in energy and mental clarity following your IV hydration therapy.

As long as there are no contraindications, IV hydration therapy can be part of your regular wellness routine.
