Hydrate for your health with IV therapy

Sufficiently hydrated individuals are generally healthier, and researchers have even connected the dots between hydration, risks of chronic disease, and longevity. In a longitudinal study, National Institutes of Health researchers found subjects with higher blood sodium levels (associated with lower water intake) had a 39% greater risk of developing diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic conditions. 

Naturally, an IV drip or hydration therapy has been the go-to treatment for severe dehydration. When salts and fluids are delivered intravenously into the bloodstream via a vein, they go to work quickly. Led by double board-certified physician Dr. Philip Conrardy, White Pearl Medical Spa in Northwest Illinois, helps individuals feel better and improve their overall health and well-being. 

A healthy hydration boost

Dehydration is common. Older people may suffer from losing fluids that outpace their water/fluid intake due to acquired conditions or the medications used to treat them, which may increase their risk of becoming dehydrated. Likewise, your body may not get the water or fluids it needs due to travel, a busy lifestyle, and an intense exercise regimen. We help our valued patients avoid potentially serious complications and feel more energized overall. Our blends of essential vitamins, minerals, fluids, and other nutrients also help to bolster the immune system and prevent illness. 

Since our professionals safely administer just the right combination of these essential substances directly into the bloodstream, nutrient deficiencies are replenished quickly. By bypassing the digestive system, IV therapy allows these nutritional powerhouses to be absorbed directly into the cells that need it most. This process also gets results faster than oral supplements or pills taken by mouth. No two approaches to patients are exactly the same. 

During a consultation, we will determine the appropriate blend of nutrients to address your health concerns and challenges and to reach your personal goals. This personalized “cocktail” will then be administered intravenously during a 30- to 60-minute treatment session. We will also advise on what to drink and eat and how to prepare before treatment. Some of our patients experience an almost immediate energy and mood boost; however, outcomes from hydration therapy can vary dramatically. 

We can also advise on follow-up treatment sessions to recalibrate as needed and to sustain the hydrating, healthy benefits. White Pearl Medical Spa welcomes your questions. Call (847) 238-8861 to reach our team and schedule an appointment at our office in Des Plaines, IL.
