Benefit # 1 – IV Therapy for Hangovers

Hangovers are never a pleasant experience. Drinking too much alcohol causes dehydration and removes nutrients from the body. Hangovers are caused by a variety of factors including the direct effects of alcohol in the body, the effects of metabolites produced in the body, as well as other chemicals produced in the body depending on the amount of alcohol consumed. Alcohol’s diuretic and dehydrating effects are what cause most of the hangover symptoms experienced.  

Symptoms of hangovers include:

  • Headaches and muscle aches
  • Fatigue
  • Excessive thirst / dry mouth
  • Nausea / vomiting / stomach pain
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound
  • Shakiness
  • Anxiety / irritability
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Mood changes

Hangover symptoms typically start when the blood alcohol content (BAC) gets back to “0.0” once alcohol has completely left the bloodstream.  Hangover symptoms can last from a few short hours, all the way up to 24-36 hours. Shortening this recovery time can be achieved with IV Therapy. IV Therapy for hangovers is most commonly a mixture of saline solution, electrolytes, vitamins, anti nausea, anti-inflammatory, and antacid medications to address the main syst. The combination of these fluids and vitamins rehydrate the body and replete the vitamins that were lost during drinking.
