IV Fluids for Food Poisoning

Food Poisoning Home Remedy

In-home IV fluids: the ultimate food poisoning home remedy

Food poisoning is no fun. A Friday night trip to a restaurant can turn into a weekend of misery – nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and cramps are all common symptoms of food poisoning. A night spent running to the bathroom may have you wondering if you should see a doctor, or searching for a food poisoning home remedy to feel better faster.

While the symptoms of food poisoning are right up there with the worst of the stomach bugs (many people who think they have a stomach bug actually have food poisoning!) these symptoms are actually serving a purpose – to flush the toxins out of your body. That’s why staying properly hydrated with IV fluids is the most effective food poisoning remedy – and it’s the likely treatment that you will receive if you make the trek to the emergency room.

What about a food poisoning home remedy?

AZ IV Medics offers a way to receive IV fluids in the comfort of your own home! If don’t want to leave home (or you’re trying to make it through the day at the office!) one of our mobile IV therapists (paramedics and ER nurses) will come to you! We will quickly and professionally set you up with a liter of balanced fluids and vitamins to replenish your system. This helps your body flush out the toxins and provides quick relief.

If you’re suffering from nausea or vomiting, we can also add an anti-nausea medicine to your IV. This helps with one of the more uncomfortable symptoms of food poisoning, and helps you to recover more comfortably at home.

Ready for a nurse or paramedic to give you relief? Call or text us now at 623-521-5034!

What is food poisoning?

Food poisoning happens when you eat or drink something that’s contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, or toxins produced by these. You almost never realize it beforehand, because most of the time these offenders are impossible to see, smell or taste.

Foods that are more risky include:

  • Raw or under-cooked meats
  • Raw egg
  • Raw sprouts
  • Raw fish & oysters
  • Unwashed fruits and vegetables
  • Unpasteurized cheese
  • Contaminated water

There are also a number of recalled packaged foods and restaurant foods at any given time that may cause food poisoning. Check out this handy map listing all the current incidents of food poisoning caused by recalls, packaged foods, and wider-known issues: Food Poisoning Outbreak Monitor

What are the symptoms of food poisoning?

The symptoms of food poisoning include:

  • Stomach pain & cramping
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Dehydration

Who should go to the emergency room?

While most of the time there’s not much a doctor can do for your food poisoning besides give you IV fluids & tell you to wait it out, there are definitely times when you need to see a doctor.

  • Blood in your vomit or when you go to the bathroom
  • Blurry vision
  • Extreme stomach pain
  • Fever over 101.5
  • Symptoms lasting for more than 3 days
  • If you’re pregnant or an adult over 60
  • Babies & children should always err on the side of caution & see a doctor
  • People with compromised immune systems

What are some food poisoning home remedies?

The only really effective food poisoning home remedy is hydration. Drinking as much water or electrolyte-balanced liquid as possible helps your body flush out the toxins faster. Drinking extra fluid also helps prevent dehydration caused by vomiting or diarrhea.

Unfortunately, vomiting and diarrhea can make drinking liquids uncomfortable or even impossible. If you can’t keep anything down (or in!) you aren’t receiving the benefits of hydration, and you could be at risk for dehydration.

That’s where IV therapy comes in!

How can mobile IV therapy help with food poisoning?

Mobile IV therapy is the perfect food poisoning home remedy – you get all of the benefits of emergency room IV hydration, with none of the driving, waiting & exposure to sick people! Your body is readily able to absorb the fluids, vitamins and medicines because IV fluids don’t pass through your digestive system. You will feel better, faster – all in the comfort of your own home.

Is mobile IV therapy expensive?

Not compared to going to the emergency room! It starts at $100 for the fluids and B vitamins, and that includes a member of your team coming straight to your home or office! Optional add-ons like anti-nausea medicine or additional immune-boosting vitamins are $25. Check out our packages & pricing for more details.
