IV Drip Therapy: The Newest Trend in Wellness in Miami
To call IV Therapy (intravenous therapy) a trend is a misnomer and is dismissing this simple but important and beneficial procedure as a passing fad that will be obsolete when a newer wellness technique hits the market. We’re convinced this is not the case as IV Therapy has been utilized in the medical world for decades. What is new is the accessibility factor as more and more clinicians and practitioners offer IV treatments as part of their wellness services.
What is IV Therapy?
IV Therapy became widely available in hospitals in the 1950’s as a means of keeping patients properly hydrated. For decades, hospitals have relied on IV Infusions to deliver life-sustaining treatments, hydration, and medicine to patients undergoing illness or medical treatments. Since then, advancements in modern medical technology have made IV therapy more easily accessible to the public without the need of a hospitalization. Today, the wellness world has embrace IV Therapy with many clinics and private doctors offering IV drips as part of their wellness services.
IV drip clinics and mobile IV drip services are particularly popular in hot and humid vacation destinations like South Florida - especially Miami and Miami Beach. The rise in popularity of IV treatments is proof this is a quick procedure that will help you recover from a variety of conditions quite rapidly. Now, more patients have the accessibility to IV therapists who can recommend individualized IV formulas designed to best fit each patient’s needs.
One such service is IV Division – based in Miami Beach, we serve the South Florida region with on demand, at-home treatments. Our IV infusions with essential fluids, electrolytes, vitamins and antioxidants, quickly remedy a variety of conditions and illnesses. Each customized treatment takes about 30 to 45 minutes and can be administered in the comfort of your home, hotel room, office or special event.
Should You Try IV Therapy?
You may have seen pictures of your friends or celebrities on social media posting pictures hooked up to an IV during vacation or recovering from a hangover. You may also be wondering if what they’re doing could be accessible to you. The answer is yes – IV therapy is a safe and effective way to treat a variety of symptoms including dehydration, a hangover, jet lag, migraines, gastrointestinal problems and more. In fact, many IV therapists also offer IV drips as preventative measures to improve your immune response and as a way of maintaining proper hydration.
Why is Hydration So Important?
You may have heard the common guideline that you need to drink eight 8oz glasses of water daily. While this is a general guideline for an average adult, each person is different and you may need more or less depending on your own needs. However, water and fluid intake in general, is an essential need for survival and sustaining good health. Each cell in your body contains water – water is necessary for your body to function and perform each and every daily task from simply breathing to running a marathon.
Although hydration is fundamental to proper health, and even survival, sometimes maintaining proper hydration is not as simple as drinking water. If you’re not properly hydrated and no action is taken quickly to reverse fluid loss, this can lead to dehydration.
Instances when drinking water alone is not enough to maintain or re-establish hydration is when you are ill, such as when one is suffering from a hangover, food poisoning, gastrointestinal illness, 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 a hangover even worse and take you longer to recover from a severe headache, fatigue, shakiness and general anxiety related to coming down from the effects of alcohol consumption.
What Are The Signs And Symptoms of Dehydration?
Dehydration symptoms vary from mild to severe – the longer you take to address mild symptoms, the more severe your dehydration will become. The following are the signs and symptoms of dehydration…
When it’s hot outside and you’re doing lots of strenuous activities like exercising outside, it’s pretty easy to start noticing you’re feeling thirsty and are losing fluids fast.
However, if you are sick with the flu or have a busy day of travelling with little access to your normal amount of beverages at your reach, it may take longer for you to notice the symptoms of dehydration that slowly start creeping up on you.
These symptoms generally start simple enough like when you start feeling thirsty. Some doctors and nutritionists say that the moment you feel thirst those are the first signs of mild dehydration.
Other most common symptoms of dehydration include dry mouth and tongue, lack of tears/dry eyes, no urination for prolonged times, extreme thirst, fatigue, dizziness, confusion and even sleeplessness.
When to See a Doctor
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, or to rehydrate faster, a Recovery IV Treatment can help you recover faster. 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. In fact, consuming extremely large amounts of water alone (h2o) either by drinking or intravenously can have its own adverse and dangerous effects on the body. That is why the IV solution must be properly balanced and only administered by medical professionals.
At IV Division each and every one of our IV treatments is medically monitored by Dr. Jarred Mait. At the time of the appointment, the IV drips are administered by highly skilled nurses or doctors at the location of your choice, be it in the comfort of your own home or hotel room.
You should consult a doctor and seek an IV infusion when you start experiencing any symptoms of dehydration but especially when you cannot keep fluids down during instances such as suffering from a hangover, a food poisoning or other gastrointestinal problems that cause vomiting or diarrhea. During these times, it is crucial to get hydration fast to aid in recovery as you’re already in a state of dehydration.
