More than half of your body is made up of water. Water is the substrate from which life springs, and without it, life is simply not possible. Unfortunately, our fast-paced, soda-loving, health-neglecting culture means that many people are chronically dehydrated. Dehydration can spell disaster for your health, and drinking a massive quantity of water might not be sufficient to curb chronic dehydration. Here’s what you need to know about dehydration, and how IV hydration therapy can help.

How Dehydration Affects Your Health

Every cell in your body relies on water to function. With inadequate water, cells begin to die, and eventually you will, too. Sometimes, though, you have enough water to maintain basic functioning, but not enough to ensure you’re in optimal health. This is the sort of dehydration many people experience on a daily basis, and most of them don’t know it. So how does chronic dehydration affect your health:

    • An acid-alkaline imbalance in your blood, tissue, and bodily secretions. This can spark a number of problems, including metabolic issues, endocrine problems, infertility, chronic yeast infections, and even poor oral health.
    • Chronic, unexplained fatigue.
    • Muscle pain and weakness.
    • Poor skin, hair, and nail health due to inadequate hydration.
    • Cardiovascular health problems such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
    • Weakness and lack of motivation.
    • Chronic illnesses.
    • An overall sense of poor health.


Who Is at Risk for Dehydration?

Anyone can become dehydrated. You’ve probably heard that you need to drink eight glasses of water a day, but that’s only part of the story. Te real determinant of how much hydration you need is how much water you excrete. Sweating saps your body of water, and some other functions, such as breastfeeding, also require more water. This is why athletes, people who sweat a lot, and people who take dehydrating medications may need to drink more water. Substances such as caffeine may lead to hydration issues, too, so if you’re not sure if you’re at risk of dehydration, talk to your doctor about how your medical history and lifestyle affect your risk.

You are at a heightened risk of dehydration if:

    • You do not drink water, and prefer soda or juice instead.
    • You drink only very small quantities of water, or go several hours without drinking anything.
    • You take medications that dehydrate you.
    • You are recovering from an illness.
    • You are an athlete or you sweat a lot.
    • You live in a dry, arid climate.


Signs and Symptoms of Chronic Dehydration

Acute dehydration is dehydration that is sudden and severe, such as you might experience after spending time in the desert or running a marathon. Chronic dehydration, which is the product of long-term inadequate fluid replenishment, is more subtle. Some symptoms include:

  • A chronically dry throat or mouth.
  • Extremely dry skin, hair, or nails. Your hair may split; your nails may be brittle, and your skin may crack open, particularly during the winter months.
  • Chronic unexplained headaches.
  • Muscle pain and tension
  • Low energy levels.
  • Intense fatigue.
  • Low milk supply if you are breastfeeding.
  • Rapid heart rate or changes in heart rate upon standing.
  • Feeling chronically hungry; sometimes the body mistakes signs of thirst for signs of hunger.

Why IV Hydration Therapy Might be the Best Choice for You

Drinking the right amount of water each day, and spacing your drinks out across the day, is the best strategy for remaining properly hydrated. Sometimes, though, this just isn’t possible. Perhaps you are busy, can’t remember to drink water, or have bladder control issues. These can all be barriers to consuming enough fluids.

Occasionally, despite your best efforts to remain hydrated, medical conditions, drugs, or chronic sweating still leave you dehydrated.

IV hydration therapy provides a solution to both dilemmas. With a quick visit to our office, we’ll deliver hydration directly to your bloodstream, allowing your body to quickly become rehydrated. You may notice an immediate improvement in your health. Better still, proper hydration allows your cells to make use of water. This means that our treatment can actually help prevent dehydration.

We offer therapy in a comfortable, safe, medically supervised environment. We listen to and address your concerns, then design a therapy specifically designed to address your hydration needs. You’ll hardly feel the IV, and you may be surprised to see how relaxing the entire process is. Your body deserves the best you can give it. In this busy, stressful world, take a break for yourself and nurture your cells with IV hydration.
