Why Choose IV Treatment for Stomach Flu Symptoms?

stomach flu symptomsThere are many stomach flu symptoms, including:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Dehydration
  • Fever and chills
  • Body aches

It’s easy to become dehydrated when you have the stomach flu. Diarrhea and vomiting quickly drain your body’s reserves. On top of that, not only are you probably not in the mood to ingest anything, you’re likely to feel nauseous or throw up anything you try to eat or drink. Dehydration can cause many serious issues if left untreated, and that’s why IV therapy is ideal for combating food poisoning.

The saline solution used in IV treatments rehydrate you and relieve dehydration symptoms such as fatigue, headache, and lightheadedness within 30 minutes to an hour.

In addition to rehydrating you, the ingredients in our IV formulas supplies your body with the vitamins and minerals lost from diarrhea and vomiting. Our formula also includes anti-nausea and pain relief medications that will further alleviate stomach flu symptoms.
