Benefit # 6 – IV Therapy for Migraines

by | Benefits

This is installment #6 of our “14 Proven Benefits of IV Therapy” Series.

Migraines are headaches that can keep people from doing the things they love most. A migraine is more than just a severe headache, it is a neurological disease that affects 18% of women and 6% of men in the United States. A migraine episode can last a few hours up to 3 to 4 days. Migraines are caused by a number of different factors which can range from genetics, dehydration, alcohol, skipping meals, caffeine withdrawal, hormones, changes in sleep, as well as changes in humidity, temperature, and/or air pressure. 

Migraines are often associated with not drinking enough water. Staying hydrated can help treat the recurring symptoms of migraines and headaches. Drinking sugary drinks like sodas and overly sweetened coffees can leave your body more dehydrated as both sugar and caffeine have diuretic properties. This will cause your system to lose even more water and lead you into dehydration. When dehydrated, the amount of fluid available to your brain reduces, causing your blood vessels to contract and the pain that you feel. 

Some of the conditions or symptoms that are associated with migraines are:

  • Pulsating headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Pain behind one eye or ear
  • Temporary vision loss
  • Weakness

Proper hydration can help treat and even prevent recurring migraines and headaches. IV hydration therapy contains fluids, electrolytes, vitamins, optional anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory addons to improve the symptoms of migraines.  The fluids and vitamins are bypassing the GI tract and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. wHydrate’s Migraine Assault is the fastest way to replace lost fluids and getting you back to your daily routine.
