While it may seem like a minor discomfort, dehydration is not something you should ever ignore, particularly if you’re aging or looking after an older family member. If you or your loved one becomes dehydrated on a regular basis, you may start to see extremely detrimental effects on the body, such as a lack of mental clarity, a decrease in energy level, and an increased vulnerability to sickness and injury. These effects can be especially dangerous to older patients, and can even lead to serious decline.
In order to help patients avoid the dangerous effects of dehydration, Mercado Medical Practice is proud to offer IV Hydration Therapy. Unlike simply drinking water or juice, IV therapy allows fluids to enter your bloodstream directly, resulting in immediate hydration. We offer a variety of therapies that include additional fluids, such as electrolytes, vitamins and antioxidants to give you a boost and keep you feeling your best. These therapies can be particularly beneficial to those who are undergoing treatment for cancer, as they’re highly effective in helping you restore your body quickly.
Receiving fluids via IV is standard medical practice -- you may have even had an IV before -- but selective IV hydration therapy is a new, customizable, cutting-edge procedure that can be administered exactly when you want it, exactly how you want it, and with immediate results. If you’re ready to feel hydrated, energized, and ready to take on each day, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mercado and the team at Mercado Medical Practice today!
At Mercado Medical Practice, we offer a number of additions to your IV hydration therapy that can provide your body even more incredible health benefits. These offerings include:
Another exciting element of the IV therapy we offer at Mercado Medical Practice is the option to combine the aforementioned IV cocktails for even greater beneficial effects on your body. This allows us to address multiple ailments at once, providing you quick, effective relief after your session. These offerings include:

IV therapy doesn’t just help you stay hydrated more quickly and effectively than simply drinking water. It can also help you introduce vitamins and even medicines immediately into your system, allowing for quick relief from a wide variety of ailments.
Different IV cocktails can address different needs, but some of the most common reasons patients come to Mercado Medical Practice for IV hydration therapy include:
IV hydration isn’t simply a boutique therapy available only to the very wealthy or the very young. As we age, we retain less and less water in our bodies, and certain conditions such as those that impede mobility can make drinking the right amount of fluids difficult. IV therapy is a great way for older adults to receive the hydration they need, and even get an extra boost with a vitamin cocktail.
