What is Food Poisoning?

Food poisoning occurs when you ingest harmful bacteria that your body cannot digest on its own. You typically get it from eating food or drinking water or other beverages that are contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, or toxins created. Most people develop symptoms within 24-hours of consuming contaminated food or beverages. Food poisoning, while very uncomfortable, generally only lasts a day or two for mild to moderate cases, while severe cases can last longer. The main cause of complications is usually dehydration from fluid loss.

How does mobile IV therapy for food poisoning help?

Food poisoning, depending on the length the individual has gone without medical treatment and the degree and strain of bacteria or virus ingested, ranges from mild to severe. The longer the illness lasts, the more fluids your body is losing leading to quick dehydration. Dehydration occurs when your body is losing more fluids essential for each and every bodily function at a higher rate than the body can absorb and retain. If you are suffering from a bout of food poisoning, or have experienced one before, you know that even taking a sip of regular water can trigger a round of vomiting. If you cannot retain fluids, seek medical help immediately.

With food poisoning, drinking water alone is not enough to maintain or re-establish hydration when you are ill. Other instances when just drinking water is not enough are when your body is under stress from a hangover, gastrointestinal illness, a chronic disease, or even the flu. During these times of illness and physical imbalance, one’s body is tasked with repairing itself and needs hydration for recovery.

Furthermore, dehydration can make the symptoms of food poisoning even worse and take you longer to recover. Severe dehydration is dangerous and should be treated by a medical professional as soon as possible.

IV Therapy for Food Poisoning Relief

Treats Dehydration Instantly

When drinking water alone is not sufficient for hydration, IV Therapy (Intravenous Therapy) is the fastest and most effective way to get fluids back into your system. To avoid dehydration, a Recovery IV Treatment will cure the effects of food poisoning. Our IV Therapy fluids are specially formulated to offer your system the proper balance of electrolytes and key minerals needed for proper body functions.

IV Infusions Provide Medicine

Secondly, IV fluid infusion therapy is used to administer medicine effectively and quickly. IV treatments are the most effective when the IV fluids are formulated with a blend of medicines and vitamins targeted to speed up recovery. When you are ill from a food poisoning, symptoms of indigestion, upset stomach, and vomiting can be resolved with medicine added to the IV bag. Your IV therapist will add specific prescription-level medicines to ease heartburn, nausea, vomiting, and headaches. Always consult with a medical professional to ensure you are receiving the correct medications needed.

Fluids are Administered Intravenously, Bypassing Digestive System

The main reason to get an IV drip when sick with food poisoning is to get re-hydrated – but often, when you are sick to your stomach, it is the most difficult time to maintain food and fluids in your system. Your digestive system is under stress – by using IV therapy – the medicine and essential fluids needed for your recovery are delivered intravenously, effectively bypassing your digestive system. This ensures your body absorbs all the fluids administered and the medicines get to work faster to provide speedy relief.

When to Call a Doctor for Food Poisoning?

Oftentimes people will try to recover on their own – while this is certainly an option, when your time is limited and your health and wellness are a priority, relief can be as simple as booking an IV treatment for food poisoning. It is recommended you seek medical help, in the form of IV therapy at the first signs of food poisoning. The sooner you call, the less severe the symptoms will be. If you’ve already waited a day or two, it is not too late to recover quickly with re-hydration.

As a general rule, book an IV therapy for food poisoning when the following symptoms and any combination of these are present:

  1. Signs of dehydration (see our blog on dehydration here).
  2. Extreme thirst and dry mouth
  3. Inability to keep liquids down
  4. Vomiting and diarrhea that lasts several hours
  5. Rapid heartbeat
  6. Weakness, dizziness, or a lightheaded feeling, especially when going from lying down or sitting to standing
  7. Confusion or forgetfulness
