Better health and symptom relief delivered in just a few minutes? That’s what you can expect from IV hydration therapy. Through a small needle we place in your arm, we can do everything from help you fight off illness to bounce back from a hangover. Bonus: You get to rest comfortably in a chair during your entire session.
Want to know which type of hydration therapy is right for you?
Here, our expert providers at Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care in Frisco, Texas, walk through the specifics of the four types of IV hydration therapy we offer and how they can help you.
1. Vitamin infusion
Rich or poor, healthy or sick, 92% of the population has at least one mineral or vitamin deficiency. Vitamins are plant- or animal-based organic substances. You get most of your vitamins from the food you eat, and getting the right amounts is essential to your body’s development and functionality.
For instance, you’ve likely heard that carrots are good for your eyesight. Well, it’s true! Carrots are chock full of carotenoids, which your body converts into vitamin A and uses to support your eye health.
Some signs that you’re running low on vitamins and minerals include the following:
- General aches and pains
- Mood changes
- Brittle hair and nails
- Vision changes
- Bleeding gums
- Prickling sensation in your fingers and toes
- Dry skin or eyes
- Muscle conditions, such as restless leg syndrome
With IV vitamin infusions, we deliver a flood of concentrated vitamins directly into your bloodstream, supporting your overall health and reversing the symptoms associated with vitamin deficiency.
2. Hangover or jet-lag infusion
After long-distance travel or a weekend of partying, chances are you’re worn out, reeling from dehydration, and nursing a gnarly headache. There’s a reason for it.
Alcohol is a notorious diuretic, which means it stimulates your body to remove fluids (urinate). The result? Dehydration, headaches, and lingering fatigue.
Similarly, long plane rides can also zap your hydration. By design, airplane cabins have very low humidity levels. That, combined with low air pressure, can take a toll on your body. You can get even more run-down if you cross time zones and suffer from jet lag.
But don’t worry. Our hangover and jet-lag infusions can replenish your fluids and address the symptoms you feel after traveling and celebrating.
3. Immunity boost
With another flu season upon us, now is not the time to leave your immunity to chance. Our immunity infusion provides your body with water, vitamins, and antioxidants — everything it needs to fight off illnesses, bacteria, viruses, and even fungi.
4. Migraine infusion
Migraines aren’t your run-of-the-mill headaches. Migraines are a disease that cause severe attacks that disrupt almost every facet of your health. People with migraine disease can find themselves sidelined for days after an attack.
Unfortunately, most people don’t realize they can turn to IV therapy for help. Our migraine infusions are a unique blend of vitamins and minerals that specifically address migraine disease. The main ingredient is magnesium sulfate, a naturally occurring mineral known for its ability to reduce pain and nausea.
What can I expect?
Your Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care provider helps you decide which type of infusion is right for you by reviewing your medical history, conducting a physical exam, and discussing your treatment goals. We may order additional testing, such as blood work or urinalysis if we suspect you’re suffering from a nutritional deficiency.
On average, IV therapy appointments take 45-60 minutes. The amount of time varies depending on the issues you’re treating. You may benefit from several treatments spaced several weeks or months apart.
