Chicago is home to one of the world’s largest Starbucks roasters. And while the city runs on its fair share of espresso and cold brew, it might be lacking in the hydration department. Combine that excess caffeine with signature nightclubs, boutique gyms, and devoted bike lanes – there are a lot of thirsty Chicagoans feeling the effects of dehydration.

The good news is that IV therapy just got more accessible than ever. Here are some of the immense benefits of hydration drip therapy, as well as how you can get these benefits delivered straight to your door.

What Is IV Therapy?

IV therapy, or intravenous therapy, is the process in which fluids are infused directly into your bloodstream. If you’ve ever been to the hospital, you’ve probably been hooked up to an IV machine. But the benefits of intravenous fluids extend outside of the doctor’s office.

When you take vitamins or other supplements through your mouth, you only really get about 50-60% of the actual substance. This is because of something called bioavailability. When you take a pill or drink a powder, a large percentage of that substance is metabolized by the body and never actually gets absorbed into the bloodstream. This means that you might not feel the benefits as strongly or as quickly.

IV fluids are the only way for a medication to be 100% bioavailable, meaning that the entire amount of the infused substance is absorbed by the bloodstream. This means that an IV infusion works quickly and effectively to support your well-being and allows you to feel better in less time

How Can I.V. Hydration Therapy Help Me?

IV therapy can benefit a variety of conditions including: fatigue, athletic performance, endurance, immune system support, stomach bug, food poisoning, colds, flu, migraines/headaches, nutritional support, nutrient deficiencies, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive disorders, pre/post travel, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, preventative care, wellness, and more.

What Is the Importance of Hydration?

Staying hydrated is essential not only for feeling your very best, but also for ensuring that your overall wellness is in top shape. Hydration is crucial when it comes to maintaining energy levels, getting an immune boost, and supporting brain health and cognitive function, for example. Signs of dehydration include excess thirst, feeling dizzy or lightheaded, headaches, dry mouth and lips, or dark-colored urine, and chronic dehydration can take a toll on your health.

Drinking enough water is crucial because it helps regulate body temperature, deliver nutrients to cells, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, and allow your organs to work the way they should. But if you exercise often or drink a lot of substances that lead to dehydration (like coffee or alcohol), it can be tough to stay as hydrated as you should.

When you need a little extra boost, an electrolyte hydration drip can do the trick.

What Is a Hydration Drip?

Going out to a club is a lot of fun. Waking up the next day? Not so much.

We’ve all been there. And while taking electrolyte supplements can help you get back on your feet, they aren’t as effective because of their bioavailability. If you’re looking for fast relief, you’ll want to get a hydration drip.

But if you’re suffering from a severe hangover, the last thing you want to do is leave your home and head to a doctor’s office for your drip. That’s where The I.V. Doc is different – we make house calls and come directly to you for our hydration drip services.

First, you’ll choose among the cities we serve in Europe and America before scheduling your appointment. And don’t worry, if you need fast relief, rush services are available upon request. From there, you’ll consult with a licensed physician through telehealth to craft a personalized treatment scope that works best for whatever you’re recovering from.

Finally, you can rest and relax until a medical professional arrives to administer your IV (at which point, you can rest and relax even more).

We offer multiple hangover hydration treatments, from basic packages all the way up to advanced packages with prescription medications attached. But no matter what you pick, you’ll be able to quickly rehydrate from a cellular level, replenishing vital nutrients and electrolytes while improving blood supply to vital organs.

The best way to see the difference is to feel it for yourself. Book an appointment today to start feeling like yourself again

What Makes I.V. Hydration Therapy So Effective?

IV therapy bypasses the need for nutrient absorption through the gut. Achieving high blood levels of vitamins is simply not possible due to absorption limitations from the digestive process. Patients can get up to 10 times the vitamins and minerals in one treatment as they could get orally in one day.

How Can I Hydrate Without an IV?

Remember that an IV drip is by far the easiest and most efficient way to replenish lost fluids and nutrients that you might have lost from a night of drinking or a heavy sweating session. But you can supplement the benefits of an IV by increasing your hydration through other means.

Drink More Water

One of the easiest ways to rehydrate is to just drink more water. It’s recommended that you drink between 11.5 to 15.5 cups a day, according to general guidelines.

Of course, it’s hard to get that much water in a given day, and water alone doesn’t contain the necessary electrolytes to fully replenish you after a heavy workout or a tough night out. So drinking more water alone won’t cure that hangover, though it’s great to stay hydrated after your IV drip so the benefits last longer.

Drink Less Caffeine

While it’s important to drink more water to hydrate more, not all liquids are created equal. Drinks that are high in caffeine, like coffee or soda, can actually dehydrate you instead. Try to limit the amount of caffeine you drink in a day by swapping out coffee for decaf or swapping out soda for sparkling water instead.

Eat Electrolyte-Heavy Foods

Electrolytes are essential minerals like sodium or calcium that play an important role in the functions of loads of different body processes. When you sweat or become dehydrated, you lose a lot of these minerals. They are not created by your body naturally, so you need to get them from another source.

IV electrolyte drips are the only way to get 100% of the nutrients into your bloodstream, but a lot of the foods you eat also contain electrolytes. Broccoli, kale, avocado, pickles, sunflower seeds, and spinach are just a few examples of foods that can replenish some minerals you might have lost during a late night at the bar.

In Conclusion

That pounding hangover headache doesn’t have to do with the alcohol itself – it’s all due to severe dehydration as a result of heavy drinking. But if you’re active or you drink a lot of caffeine, you might be less hydrated than you think.

While electrolyte supplements can make you feel more energetic, only about 60% of the nutrients will actually be absorbed through oral intake. That’s why IV Therapy is the preferred route, as it’s the only way to make sure that 100% of the minerals enter your body.

And you don’t need to go to a doctor to feel the benefits. The I.V. Doc will send a medical professional directly to your home to administer a personalized IV treatment to soothe your dehydration and make you feel like the best version of yourself.
