Skip The Hangover With IV Hydration Therapy

Even if you are focused on living a healthy lifestyle on a regular basis, a nasty hangover can creep its way in occasionally. As we age our hangovers tend to get worse and in my experience the more healthy I am day to day the harder it hurts when I do occasionally over indulge. Part of the reason I basically decided to quit drinking all together was because my hangovers are so bad. I just don’t see the point anymore.

You know the classic hangover symptoms:

  • Fatigue 
  • Thirst (from dehydration)
  • Weakness, muscle aches, or sweating
  • Headache or sensitivity to light and sound
  • Nausea, stomach pain, or vertigo
  • Anxiety or irritability
  • Increased blood pressure

And, depending on how much you drank, it can take a while to bounce back—up to 72 hours, according to Johns Hopkins

Understanding What a Hangover Does To Your Body

  1. You are dehydrated. Alcohol slows the release of a hormone that allows the kidneys to absorb both water and electrolytes, allowing fluids to be flushed out. You may also have experienced excessive sweating causing further dehydration. Your heart is working overtime as well, leading to some constriction of blood vessels. This may lead to some dehydration headaches.
  2. Your gastro-intestinal system is seriously irritated. Your stomach lining and intestines are inflamed. Gastric and intestinal acids may be released causing greater pain and the need to vomit.

When morning comes you feel an instant sense of regret as your head pounds and your stomach threatens to erupt and dislodge its contents, adding to your overall sense of misery. You want to spend the day with your head under a pillow. Sadly, you cannot go back in time and undo the previous night’s drinking, but there is help available.

What Can You Do For Fast Relief?

While it is important to drink water while hungover, you have to sip it slowly throughout the day, stretching out the recovery time. Our hydration therapy speeds up this aspect of hangover recovery process enabling your body to function more normally in quicker time.

After a IV Hydration, your heart should return to its normal rate as it does not have to work extra hard to fight the dehydration consequences. This should bring a calming effect to both your physical and mental state, helping to quell the feeling of anxiety that often accompanies hangovers.

Try IV Hydration Drips

Another concept that has grown in popularity in recent years is the idea of the Hangover IV Drip. Establishments are popping up across the country to administer an assortment of fluids and vitamins purported to reduce the impact of a hangover and return you to full energy in just 45 minutes. 

Again, there is (as of yet) no scientific evidence to back up the validity of claims being made regarding these IV drips. Running only $90 cash price we can have you feeling relief before you walk out the door. But people who have opted to give the heavy in B vitamins and electrolytes bags a try claim it helps in most cases for at least a few hours.
