There have been record-setting temperatures this summer, and many people have suffered the effects of dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. While these are different conditions, all of them are related to losing fluids and electrolytes from too much heat. If you are spending excessive time in the heat, IV hydration therapy is one of the best ways to replenish your fluids and water-soluble vitamins and minerals.
Causes of Dehydration and Over-Heated Conditions
Dehydration is simply losing more fluids than you take in. This can be caused by various situations, from not drinking enough water to illness, medications, excessive exercise, or heat. When dehydrated, you may experience lightheadedness, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, and increased pulse. These symptoms can alert you to an increased risk of heat exhaustion or stroke, which can be deadly.
When you are dehydrated, your body cannot regulate temperature properly. This increases your risk of overheating in hot weather. Heat exhaustion can cause you to lose consciousness and result in muscle cramps, nausea, and vomiting. If you do not cool your body and rehydrate, it can result in heat stroke, which can cause seizures, hallucinations, and even death.
Benefits of IV Hydration Therapy
In the hot weather, it is vital to keep yourself hydrated. Drinking enough fluids routinely should be a priority – avoiding caffeine and alcoholic beverages when you are in the heat can help you retain your fluids. IV drip therapy is another option to restore fluid levels quickly and give your body electrolytes and other nutrients it needs to stay hydrated. Some of the benefits of routine IV hydration therapy during the hot summer months include:
- Bypass the digestive system for faster absorption
- Customize your nutrients for optimal health
- Replenish after excessive time in the heat
- Recover quicker from overheating
- Hydrate before/after attending outdoor summer events
IV drip therapy is wonderful for anyone that has digestive issues that make it hard to absorb nutrients or fluids. Your fluids and nutrients are delivered into your bloodstream to restore fluid and nutrient balance quickly.
