Food poisoning is one of the most unpleasant illnesses you can develop. Not only does it result in highly uncomfortable symptoms, but it can lead to serious complications. While it starts out simple enough with queasiness, more intensive symptoms develop quickly. People are usually willing to try anything to help them feel better. If you’re dealing with a bout of food poisoning and you want to try a different way to get relief, you should consider IV hydration treatment.

There are more than 250 foodborne diseases, and most are caused by bacteria, viruses, and parasites. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the germs that cause the most illnesses in the United States are:

  • Salmonella
  • Norovirus
  • Staphylococcus aureus (Staph)
  • Clostridium perfringens
  • Campylobacter

 Symptoms of Food Poisoning

When your immune system detects a harmful bacteria, virus or parasite, it will attack it. This is what causes the symptoms you’ll experience such as:

  • Stomach cramps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever

These are the most common symptoms and they can range from mild to severe. They may develop hours or days after you eat or drink the contaminated item.

Even though these symptoms are unpleasant, one of the biggest problems you’ll face is dehydration caused by excessive vomiting and diarrhea. Since every part of your body needs water to function adequately dehydration can compound your symptoms. You may feel dizzy or lightheaded and your cognitive function can diminish. If you have food poisoning, you need to rehydrate as soon as possible.

If you experience severe symptoms, you must see a doctor. These symptoms include:

  • Bloody stool
  • Tingling in the arms
  • A fever above 102 °F
  • Frequent vomiting that prevents you from keeping down liquids
  • Diarrhea that lasts for more than three days
  • Dizziness or blurred vision

Boost Your Fluid Intake with IV Hydration Treatment

If you can’t keep anything down, you won’t be able to drink lots of fluids. That’s where IV treatment comes in. Getting hooked up to an IV drip containing a sterile saline solution and much-needed vitamins and minerals is much more effective and efficient. Since the solution goes directly into your bloodstream, you will feel the benefits almost immediately. Anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory ingredients can also be included in the IV solution.
