CAN IV THERAPY HELP TREAT INSOMNIA?

Did you know that even mild dehydration can disrupt your sleep? Drinking a lot of water just before bed is not the best solution as you may have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. IV infusion therapy is a convenient way to restore your fluid balance and receive the necessary micronutrients that can help treat insomnia.

Most people drink too little water throughout the day. While caffeinated drinks do contribute to fluid intake, they also have a mild diuretic effect, cause headaches and worsen insomnia. You can become dehydrated at night if the weather is warm or you’ve had an intense workout later in the day without sufficient rehydration.

Your nasal passages and mucous membranes become dry and this can result in a hoarse throat and worsen snoring that can wake you up from sleep. If you are a mouth breather, there is fluid loss that occurs while you sleep because of the drying of the oral mucosa membranes. Toxins tend to build up in your body when you are dehydrated and you can have problems like dry eyes, dry and itching skin, leg cramps, increased susceptibility to infections, and headaches. All of these factors together can cause or worsen insomnia.

IV therapy restores fluid levels to help with normal body functions. Additionally, micronutrients are added to your IV infusion to help you sleep better. These include zinc, which has been shown to give you a sense of well being and improve REM sleep; magnesium which improves sleep quality and duration, vitamin B3 which helps with the regulation of hormones, as well as vitamin D, antioxidants, and other trace minerals that improve cellular function, restore energy levels, and regulate mood allowing you to relax into a restful night’s sleep.
