Food related illnesses are certainly uncomfortable, but are preventable and easily treatable to mitigate any long-lasting problems or complications.
Of all the treatments available to help alleviate symptoms of food poisoning, IV Therapy (intravenous therapy) is by far the quickest and most effective way to bring relief and rapid healing. Food poisoning can manifest in several ways, most common are stomach pains, sudden nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.
“Patients suffering from food poisoning, which can range from mild to severe symptoms, see beneficial results after about 30 minutes from receiving an IV infusion drip,” said Dr. Jarred Mait, chief medical operator at IV Division. “Our IV treatments include medications custom blended to relieve symptoms that include dehydration, vomiting, diarrhea and other digestive problems.”

What is Food Poisoning?
Food poisoning occurs when you ingest harmful bacteria that your body cannot digest on its own. You typically get it from eating food or drinking water or other beverages that are contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, or toxins created from these. Most people develop symptoms within 24-hours of consuming contaminated food or beverages. Food poisoning, while very uncomfortable, generally only lasts a day or two for mild to moderate cases, while severe cases can last longer. The main cause of complications is usually due to dehydration from fluid loss.
How does IV therapy cure food poisoning
Food poisoning, depending on the length the individual has gone without medical treatment and the degree and strain of bacteria or virus ingested, ranges from mild to severe. The longer the illness lasts, the more fluids your body is losing leading to quick dehydration. Dehydration occurs when your body is losing more fluids essential for each and every bodily function at a higher rate than the body can absorb and retain. If you are suffering from a bout of food poisoning, or have experienced one before, you know that even taking a sip of regular water can trigger a round of vomiting. If you cannot retain fluids, seek medical help immediately.
With food poisoning, drinking water alone is not enough to maintain or re-establish hydration when you are ill. Other instances when just drinking water is not enough are when your body is under stress from a hangover, gastrointestinal illness, a chronic disease, or even the flu. During these times of illness and physical imbalance, one’s body is tasked with repairing itself and needs hydration for recovery.
Furthermore, dehydration can make the symptoms of food poisoning even worse and take you longer to recover. Severe dehydration is dangerous and should be treated by a medical professional as soon as possible.
Rapid Food Poisoning Relief
Treats Dehydration Instantly
When drinking water alone is not sufficient for hydration, IV Therapy (Intravenous Therapy) is fastest and most effective way to get fluids back into your system. To avoid dehydration, a Recovery IV Treatment will cure effects of food poisoning. Our IV Therapy fluids are especially formulated to offer your system with the proper balance of electrolytes and key minerals needed for proper body functions.
IV Infusions Provide Medicine
Secondly, IV fluid infusion therapy is used to administer medicine effectively and quickly. IV treatments are the most effective when the IV fluids are formulated with a blend of medicines and vitamins targeted to speed up recovery. When you are ill from a food illness, symptoms of indigestion, upset stomach and vomiting can be resolved with medicine added to the IV bag. Your IV Therapist will add specific prescription level medicines to ease heartburn, nausea, vomiting and headaches. Always consult with a medical professional to ensure you are receiving the correct medications needed.
Fluids are Administered Intravenously, Bypassing Digestive System
The main reason to get an IV drip when sick with food poisoning is to get re-hydrated – but often, when you are sick to your stomach, it is the most difficult time to maintain food and fluids in your system. Your digestive system is under stress – by using IV therapy – the medicine and essential fluids needed for your recovery are delivered intravenously, effectively bypassing your digestive system. This ensures your body absorbs all the fluids administered and the medicines get to work faster to provide speedy relief.
