IV Hydration Q & A

Why is hydration so important?

Your body uses fluids to perform a wide range of functions. Fluids allow your body to carry nutrients to your cells, to maintain consistent bowel movements, to remove bacteria from your bladder, and more. When you’re dehydrated, your brain, heart, and muscles are challenged to work the way they should.

In short, drinking enough water throughout the day is one of the best things you can do to keep yourself healthy and to keep your body working properly. How much water is enough? Generally, people should drink half their body weight in ounces daily.
But after vigorous exercise, a sickness, or even a simply busy day, you might find that you’re dehydrated. That’s where Dr. Wolfsohn steps in with IV hydration.

What is IV hydration?

IV, or intravenous, hydration is a way to directly deliver the fluids your body needs. While drinking water is an effective way to rehydrate, it takes time for your body to reabsorb the fluids it needs to function its best. If you don’t want your systems suffering in the meantime, you can turn to IV hydration.

Many people choose this treatment to rehydrate quickly after:

  • The flu or another sickness
  • Travel
  • Exposure to hot weather
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Food poisoning

IV hydration can also help you feel better if you’re stressed, haven’t been sleeping well, or feel overworked.

Because the fluids are introduced directly into your bloodstream with this treatment, Dr. Wolfsohn can use it to return your body to optimal hydration in an hour or less.

What are the benefits of IV hydration?

The obvious benefit of IV hydration is the virtually immediate rehydration of your body, restoring sufficient fluids to every system throughout your body so it can work its best. You should feel better immediately after your treatment. But you don’t have to stop there.

On top of IV hydration, Dr. Wolfsohn also offers vitamin and supplement infusions. When you choose this treatment, in addition to your hydration you also get a dose of the vitamins and supplements your body needs, including vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D3, and more.

All IV hydration, vitamin and supplement therapy patients will be evaluated by Dr. Wolfsohn prior to treatment and if any additional information is needed to safely provide care (medical records, labs, communication from primary treating physician), she will request more information at her discretion.
