Orange County’s premier hydration therapy clinic is located inside Newport Medical & Wellness in Costa Mesa. Maybe you’ve seen the signs during a regular doctor visit or aesthetic treatment appointment or when doing a Long-Spine class and have wondered what the heck is Boost Hydration. Maybe you’ve been wondering what hydration therapy is in general… Well, read on and let us introduce you to the benefits of hydration therapy.

Hydration Therapy Benefits

It’s a well-established fact that hydration is an important part of overall health, but this does not mean that everyone out there is drinking all the water they need to function. If you lead a hectic lifestyle, you may find yourself forgetting to hydrate more often than not, a mistake that can leave you feeling tired, bloated, and overall unwell. IV therapy is a useful way to hydrate your body fast and get many of the important vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes you need to function at peak performance.

How Hydration Therapy Works

Hydration therapy uses an IV to introduce fluids into your bloodstream quickly. Fluids are contained in a plastic bag attached to an IV needle and tube. The IV is inserted into a vein and then you sit back and relax while the fluids are allowed to drip down directly into the bloodstream. Usually, the fluid is a solution that includes not only water but also vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. The process generally takes about 30 to 45 minutes, and most people experience some relief from their dehydration almost immediately.

The Advantages of Hydration Therapy

Hydration therapy works more quickly than simply ingesting water because you are bypassing the step where water has to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Individuals with sensitive stomachs or who are recovering from gastrointestinal distress may also find it easier to take fluids in this way if drinking makes them feel nauseous. Finally, the vitamins and minerals included in the IV make hydration therapy an efficient way to get not only water but also the nutrients and electrolytes that your body needs to make the most of the water it’s been given.

Potential Positive Side Effects

The advantages of being properly hydrated are myriad. You may find that you have more energy and increased mental abilities. Staying hydrated can also help with weight loss and reduce bloat. Some say it works well as a hangover cure, while other patients attest that it eases the pain of their migraine headaches, though in both these cases results vary depending on the individual. People who have been sick with the flu or a gastrointestinal illness may also choose to use hydration therapy once they are feeling better to replace lost fluids quickly.

Whether you are feeling run down and need a one-time pickup, or if you want to make hydration therapy part of your regular health care routine, contact Boost Hydration directly at (949) 629-2333 to schedule a hydration appointment or just come in to Newport Medical and Wellness Center during normal business hours.
