Rehydrate Fast With I.V. Hydration Therapy
A known secret to all medical professionals – intravenous (IV) fluid hydration therapy is the fastest and most effective way to relieve dehydration!
IV therapy is used to administer nutrients such as vitamins and minerals and key electrolytes directly into the bloodstream. This route allows for a higher concentration of nutrients to be delivered to the tissues than does oral supplementation.

San Francisco is known for its breathtaking landscapes, iconic scenery, and sprawling nightlife. And if you live in this beautiful SoCal city, the last thing you want is to feel sick, hungover, or just downright unwell.
The good news is that IV infusions can help you feel like the best version of yourself – and you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your home to get one in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here’s everything you need to know about at-home IV therapy.
What Is IV Infusion Therapy?
IV stands for intravenous, meaning inside the veins. If you’ve ever been to a hospital, chances are high that you were hooked up to an IV drip to make you feel better faster. But IV treatments aren’t reserved for just the hospital. It can have major benefits for your everyday life.
When you take vitamin or electrolyte supplements to cure hangovers or sickness, you’re actually not getting full use of each supplement. This is because of something called bioavailability. Essentially, when you take a pill or ingest a supplement, a percentage of the substance gets metabolized instead of absorbed by the bloodstream. This leaves only about 50-60% of the supplement to be used by the body.
The only way to make use of 100% of a substance is to have it infused directly into the bloodstream through an IV. This means that you’ll be feeling better in less time and for a longer period of time as opposed to oral intake.
Is IV Therapy Safe?
There are no major side effects associated with IV treatment outside of just a small bruise at the site of injection. It’s also normal to feel a cooling sensation after treatment. And if you’re worried about the pinch of the needle, we use a pediatric-sized needle for our mobile IV therapy that won’t make you feel anything more than just a small pinch.
What Is Hangover and Hydration IV Therapy?
Pounding headaches and nausea after a night out are something we know all too well. And believe it or not, those symptoms aren’t due to the alcohol directly. What you’re feeling is severe dehydration due to drinking too heavily.
But drinking water alone won’t replenish the necessary electrolytes to make you feel your best, and ingesting electrolytes directly won’t be enough to support you because of bioavailability. So getting a hydration IV is the best course of action.
Hydration therapy can be used to directly pump electrolytes and minerals into your bloodstream to support your overall health. Electrolytes are essential substances like calcium and sodium that play key roles in body functions like muscle contractions and pH level balance. It can even work to improve blood supply to vital organs by purifying your body from the daily chemicals you’re exposed to.
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 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.
What Is NAD+ IV Therapy?
NAD+, which is short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is one of the most abundant molecules found in living cells. It is an imperative molecule involved in many key cell functions like DNA repair, chromatin remodeling, cellular senescence, and immune cell function.
In short, it plays a key role in cell division and reproduction. Cell senescence is the process in which cell division slows and stops with age, which can result in signs of aging like wrinkles, sore joints, and more. Having an abundance of NAD+ in the body can make you feel more energized while also improving mental clarity and DNA repair.
NAD+ therapy is the most effective way to increase NAD levels since it is 100% absorbed by the bloodstream. While you can enhance NAD+ production by limiting sun exposure, exercising, and eating healthy foods, these won’t be able to give you as vast of an assortment of benefits when compared to NAD+ IV.
You can pair this with Vitamin B12 add-ons, as B12 is used to form red blood cells and DNA. Combined with enhanced NAD+, these go together well and can enhance each other’s benefits.
What Is Antioxidant IV Therapy?
Oxidative stress is a process in which cells in the body die off more quickly than the body is able to supply new ones. This is another factor influencing aging, and oxidative stress can lead to symptoms like wrinkles, fine lines, and more.
That’s why you probably hear about nutritionists and dieticians touting about the benefits of antioxidant foods. These work to try to slow down the process of oxidative stress to simultaneously slow down the speed of aging.
Foods like broccoli, potatoes, and carrots are exceptionally high in antioxidants. But remember that when you consume something orally, you only reap about 50-60% of the benefits before it’s metabolized.
For that reason, antioxidant therapy is a great way to enhance your intake of antioxidants and fight back against signs of aging. The I.V. Doc’s proprietary antioxidant blend of fluids, electrolytes, and vitamin C can help squash free radicals that are making you look and feel less rejuvenated than you want to be. Antioxidants can help maintain proper brain function, energy levels, and overall detoxification while offering immune support.
