IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

During IV therapy, fluids are delivered directly into a vein in your arm. The fluids include electrolytes, antioxidants, vitamins, anti-inflammatories, anti-nausea, and other natural remedies. 

These fluids bypass your digestive system and circulate quickly into your bloodstream, replenishing your hydration and health level rapidly. 

Who benefits from IV therapy?

IV therapy is appropriate to help you:

  • Recover from a hangover
  • Ease migraine symptoms
  • Overcome jet lag
  • Recover from an athletic event
  • Restore vitality after illness

You can also easily become dehydrated after a day out in the hot Los Angeles sun. IV therapy restores your fluid levels quickly. 

How do I know if I need IV therapy?

Your body often tells you if you’re dehydrated. You may feel thirsty and experience:

  • Dry mouth
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Dark-colored urine

If your body is showing these signs, it’s crying out for fluids. 

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

If you’re dehydrated, IV delivery of fluids is the quickest and most efficient way to restore your fluid levels. It’s not only difficult and uncomfortable to drink enough water to hydrate yourself in one sitting, but your gut soaks up most of the water before you can benefit. 

Drinking copious amounts of water can also upset your digestive system and lift your sodium levels dangerously high. 

IV therapy is perfectly balanced for you and delivers the fluids to the cells and organs that need them. 

What happens during IV therapy?

The whole session takes about 30-45 minutes. You sit comfortably in a chair as the JEE Healthcare staff inserts an IV into your arm using a small needle. You continue to relax as the fluids drip slowly into your system.

Not only can you visit Dr. Escobar’s office to receive IV therapy, but he can come to you. For instance, if you’re planning a large event and want to include IV therapy, Dr. Escobar will come with additional nursing/medical staff to provide this service. 

Once treatment is complete, you can return to normal activities. You may start to feel the positive effects of better hydration right away, with optimal hydration occurring within 2-4 hours.
