IV Hydration


Hydration Therapy Chicago IL

IV Therapy Chicago

Feel Better Quicker with IV Medical infusions and Vitamin Therapy.

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy is a minimally invasive medically safe procedure to deliver intravenous fluid, electrolytes, vitamins, antioxidants and additional supplements directly into the blood stream.

It is the most efficient and effective method for the body to receive vital nutrients. Nutrient deficiency is common, and risk factors include aging, stress, smoking, diet, altered gut microbiome, systemic inflammation, and pollution. Symptoms of nutrient deficiency include fatigue, pale skin, hair loss, constipation, brain fog, depression/anxiety, decreased libido, and unusual food cravings. The effect of these deficiencies occurs in the mitochondria, which is the powerhouse of each cell.

About IV Hydration Therapy

IV therapy helps many ailments as well as dehydration, which is the main source of the symptoms we experience on a daily basis. This methodology provides 100% absorption, which is different than if these fluids are ingested orally- approximately 20-30% nutrients are absorbed when taken by mouth, the rest are lost in the digestion process.

Our infusion therapy is personalized and supervised by a board-certified pain anesthesiologist and functional medicine physician to manage all aspects of your care.

Hydration can help any individual, whether it is to recover from a residual illness, jet lag, hangover, fatigue, gastrointestinal issue or a multitude of other situations that may lead to dehydration and necessitate immediate relief with electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, supplements and fluid. We also specialize in acute migraine headache management with a board-certified neurologist.

Our bodies and vital organs function more efficiently and at a higher level when appropriately hydrated.

Will my Insurance Cover the Cost of Lab Tests?

Insurance plans will often cover the cost of lab tests however we cannot guarantee this. You may want to speak with your insurance carrier for more details.

What is your Success Rate?

Although IV infusion therapy may not a stand-alone therapy, it is a highly beneficial mechanism to support the body at a cellular level. Ongoing therapy may improve nutritional levels to a therapeutic range and restore health to patients who have suffered years with chronic disease.

Every patient is different, and while we cannot guarantee success, we use a scientifically based approach using our training and experience to customize a safe and reasonable treatment plan.

There are a number of factors to be taken into account for the improvement in health and wellness:

  • Pre-treatment baseline nutrient levels- patients with very low levels and multiple deficiencies typically respond well
  • Patient commitment (patients who successfully integrate the regimen consistently achieve desired outcomes more quickly and maintain a consistent level of health and well being. Commitment also refers to follow up visits with scheduled lab testing
  • Participating in diet plans and exercise as prescribed, as well as practicing sleep hygiene, stress management, and taking recommended supplements if applicable.
What can I Expect on the First Visit?

A board-certified physician will spend about 30 minutes in a collaborative setting, discussing your reason for visiting, symptoms, and taking a detailed medical history and a physical exam. Laboratory tests may be ordered to obtain baseline information on your overall health and nutritional health. At the end of your consultation, you and your physician will determine the preliminary course of treatment. A comprehensive treatment plan will be discussed with you based on your history.

What are the side-effects?

A: Side-effects are often minimal and manageable when receiving IV nutritional therapy.
