Feeling Run Down? IV Therapy Can Give You a Health Boost

People want to feel great, so they exercise and try to eat right. But they still may not be getting the nutrients, vitamins, or proper level of hydration their bodies need, even when drinking plenty of water every day. If you’re feeling run down, this may be the reason why. 

But don’t worry -- IV therapy can give you a health boost and help you feel healthy and energized again. Here at Life Point Medical, LLC, we know how vital hydration is to your health. Severe dehydration can actually be life threatening. 

Dr. Timothy Scott Beck and our expert team in Clayton, Georgia, have one goal for all our patients, and that’s to keep you happy and healthy using the best care and most innovative treatments available. We’re here to share how IV hydration can make a huge difference.

How to tell if you’re dehydrated

If your body doesn’t have the water and fluids it needs to function normally and properly, you’re dehydrated. Dehydration can range from mild to severe, and if you’re suffering from severe hydration, that’s an emergency situation. 

You can become dehydrated after catching the flu or as a result of vomiting and diarrhea. It can also happen if you urinate too frequently, sweat too much (from exercise or too much exertion in the heat), or drink too much alcohol.

Mild and moderate symptoms of dehydration can include:

If your skin is severely dry, you feel confused, dizzy, or faint, or have rapid breathing and a rapid heartbeat, these are the signs of extreme dehydration. You should immediately visit the closest Urgent Care facility or ER. Let’s not allow things to get to that point.

The IV hydration therapy treatment

If you’re just feeling run down, whatever the reason may be, IV therapy can give you that lift you need to feel so much better. Your body needs both nutrients and hydration, and when you come into Life Point Medical, LLC, we’ll tailor the right IV hydration treatment to your needs. This may include vitamins and minerals as well. And because the liquid is going directly into your bloodstream, everything is absorbed much more quickly, allowing you to feel the benefits right away.

Our experienced RN will insert the IV line into your arm with a small needle and stay with you the entire time to monitor the process and adjust the drip accordingly. The procedure is minimally invasive and generally safe. It can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour or more, depending on your specific needs, but during this time you can sit back and relax. 

People suffering from congestive heart failure or who may be on certain medication will be advised to avoid the treatment. 

One of the more well-known therapies is “Myers Cocktail,” which includes magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, and the B vitamins. Dr. Beck will make sure to do a full analysis of exactly what your body needs, so that your infusion produces maximum results. 

You’ll start to notice the difference immediately, especially if you were experiencing dehydration. And the great thing is, you can do this treatment whenever you need it. 

Call us or use the handy “Request Appointment” button to set up a time for your IV therapy and give your health the boost it needs.
