What are Food Poisoning IV Treatments?

Food poisoning IV treatments are a form of intravenous therapy that helps relieve symptoms of food poisoning, stomach flu, and other intestinal illnesses. This treatment replenishes essential nutrients that are lost during your illness and rehydrates your body, allowing you to feel better and recover faster.

Food Poisoning IV Treatments

Food Poisoning IV Treatments can be beneficial if you have:

• Norovirus: a form of food poisoning that develops after consuming undercooked meat or fish
• E. coli: a bacterium that enters your body through undercooked meat or from infected animals
• Salmonella: a type of food poisoning contracted from raw eggs or undercooked meat
• Any other stomach illness resulting from food consumption
• A viral stomach illness

IV food poisoning therapy can help treat:

• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Stomach pain
• Dehydration
• Headaches

Receiving IV hydrations treatments is the quickest and most efficient way to relieve symptoms of food or stomach illnesses.

How does it work?

When you have food poisoning or a stomach virus, your body works to rid itself of the virus through vomiting and diarrhea. In the process, your body loses the necessary nutrients, vitamins, and fluids and becomes dehydrated.

Food poisoning IV treatments replenish lost nutrients, rehydrate your cells, and flush out toxins to restore your electrolyte and fluid balance.

At the same time, the IV therapy boosts your immune system to prevent further illness and provides you with medication to help you feel better overall. Fluids are pumped into your veins, meaning they bypass the digestive system and are not at risk of being vomited.

What’s in Food Poisoning IV Treatments?

Each IV drip contains a saline solution, essential nutrients, vitamins, and anti-inflammatory agents. These may include:

  • Vitamins
    • Magnesium
    • Vitamin C
    • Vitamin B-12
    • Vitamin B complex
    • Zinc
    • Glutathione
  • Medicine to reduce
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Heartburn
    • Fever

Each IV bag is formulated specially for your symptoms, and ingredients will vary.

Who can benefit from Food Poisoning IV Treatments?

Anyone experiencing nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea can see reduced symptoms after receiving IV food poisoning therapy. Many food poisoning and stomach flu cases take several days to clear up completely, but this treatment allows you to begin feeling relief within a few hours.

Those having trouble swallowing medications or fluids during their illness can especially benefit from food poisoning IV treatments, which bypass the digestive system altogether.

If you are experiencing the beginning stages of a stomach illness, you will want to schedule an appointment quickly to prevent your symptoms from worsening. Those who are currently experiencing symptoms of nausea and vomiting can also find relief with food poisoning IV treatments.

How long will the effects of Food Poisoning IV Treatments last?

You can expect to feel the positive effects of this treatment for about three days, typically long enough for food poisoning or a stomach virus to resolve. The fluids received during your IV treatment will naturally flush out of your body each time you urinate, meaning you should continue drinking water as normal to keep your body hydrated.

Who can not have an injectable?

People who should avoid getting fillers are clients who:

  • Patients who have an allergy to ingredients
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • If you have any viral, fungal or bacterial infection at the injection site

How often should I receive this treatment?

Typically, one treatment is all that is necessary if you have food poisoning or a stomach virus. However, should more treatments become necessary, you will want to wait at least three days in between each appointment. This allows the previous treatment time to flush out of your system and eliminates the risk of unnecessary strain on your kidneys.


Can Food Poisoning IV Treatments prevent illness?

There is evidence that receiving IV therapy helps prevent stomach illnesses. Vitamins such as Vitamin C and Zinc help regulate your immune system, allowing your body to fight off bacteria and viruses associated with food poisoning or stomach flu.

Maintaining a healthy level of hydration also boosts your immune system and diminishes the severity of stomach viruses.

Are there risks associated with IV therapy?

Receiving food poisoning IV treatments comes with minimal risks, and most patients have a positive experience.

However, IV treatments of any kind can sometimes lead to adverse effects like infection, pain around the injection site, phlebitis, and tissue damage. Talk to our team before receiving your treatment if you have experienced any side effects from IVs in the past.

Food poisoning IV treatments are not substitutes for necessary medical treatment. If you are experiencing severe symptoms like uncontrollable vomiting, vomiting blood, or severe dehydration, contact a medical professional immediately. Food poisoning IV therapy is best suited for stomach illnesses that would clear up on their own in time or if you are just looking to rebound faster after an illness.


Can Food Poisoning IV Treatments treat other illnesses?

IV drips contain ingredients that are necessary for anyone to feel healthy. The vitamins and nutrients in each bag are beneficial to keep your body healthy and to prevent the contraction of illnesses. They can even be used to treat hangovers.

Receiving a food poisoning IV treatment can help treat the symptoms of multiple illnesses and restore your electrolyte and fluid levels. However, we offer a variety of IV treatments that may be better suited to treat your illness.

Food poisoning IV treatments are a quick and easy way to find relief from unpleasant stomach illnesses. Contact our team at Soma Plastics today to schedule your appointment for this restorative treatment.
