Hydration Therapy for Food Poisoning

Food poisoning is never fun, especially around the holidays. Foodborne illness can really put a damper on your holiday celebrating by causing you to be stuck in bed, sometimes for days on end. IV hydration therapy has become increasingly popular over the years for many different reasons, one reason being to help people recover faster from food poisoning.

Food poisoning symptoms can start within hours of eating contaminated food. Oftentimes it begins as a slight discomfort in the body due to the buildup of toxins in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. As the toxins build up your body reacts by trying to rid itself of them through vomiting and diarrhea. After enough trips to the bathroom, you have probably sworn off that food item or restaurant for eternity.

Types of Food Poisoning:

  • Salmonella – undercooked food

  • Vibrio – raw seafood

  • E. Coli – uncooked beef

  • Listeria – ready to eat foods

  • Campylobacter – contaminated water and uncooked food

  • Shigella – fecal contaminated food and water

Symptoms of Food Poisoning:

  • Stomach cramps

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Fever

  • Dehydration

These are just a few of the main symptoms you may experience with food poisoning. If your symptoms last more than 24-48 hours and include a bloody stool, bloody vomit, fever above 102 °F, or tingling in the arms, seek medical attention.

How IV Hydration Therapy Helps

While you may have the best intentions of staying hydrated by drinking water or Gatorade, sometimes your body makes it impossible to keep down any fluids taken orally. IV hydration therapy is one of the fastest ways to help alleviate symptoms of food poisoning and replace the fluids and electrolytes your body has lost because of it. The longer your symptoms last, the more dehydrated and electrolyte depleted you become which can lead to other, more serious health complications.

With hydration therapy your body is able to quickly absorb the fluids and vitamins it needs. An IV places fluids and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the need for digestion. Drinking water is sometimes not enough to regain all fluids you have lost during a battle with food borne illness. IV hydration therapy allows for easy administration of fluids, electrolytes, supplements and medicine that allows for a quicker recovery.

Our bodies are composed of 60-70% water and it is important to maintain that level of hydration even during illness or food poisoning. If you find yourself suffering from food borne illness over the holidays, IV Revival can help. All of IV Revival’s IV treatments come standard with pH balanced electrolyte fluids, not just saline. IV Revival offers many different supplements and add-ons which can boost your immunity(vitamin C, zinc, glutathione), alleviate nausea (ondansetron) and help with body aches and headaches (magnesium, curcumin, ketorolac).
