After a night out, it’s common to have a pounding headache, sensitivity to light or sound, nausea, vertigo, and a rapid heartbeat. These are all symptoms of the condition known as a hangover, and 75% of those who drink heavily report feeling these effects afterwards.
Hangovers can be debilitating and can range in intensity depending on how much alcohol you consume. The symptoms also set in several hours after you stop drinking, so you probably won’t notice you’re hung over until the morning after you’ve been out.
During this season of holiday parties and gatherings, Katherine Go, CRNA and our team at Rejuvenate IV Therapy wants you to know how IV hydration can help you recover from hangovers, or even avoid them all together.
Hangovers are a mild form of alcohol withdrawal. They happen when your nervous system tries to return to normal after suffering the effects of alcohol. Alcohol can also trigger an inflammation increase in your body that causes problems with memory and concentration.
There are many factors that can increase your risk of developing a more intense hangover. These can include:
If you have a family history of alcoholism, you can inherit problems with how your body processes alcohol, and that makes you more likely to develop more intense hangovers.
Because dehydration can intensify hangovers and vice versa, it’s important to stay hydrated both before and after a night of heavy drinking, and hydration via an intravenous drip is a great solution.
IV hydration is able to deliver the nutrients and electrolytes your body needs to recover without first going through your digestive tract. When anything goes through your digestive tract, it takes longer to process, and your body can’t obtain the full amount of nutrients and electrolytes. So by bypassing the gut, you receive the full benefits of IV hydration faster and more effectively.
For hangovers, we offer the After Party Infusion or Hangover IV that’s packed with B complex vitamins and electrolytes to rehydrate your body. It also has components that lower the inflammation in your body, which will help to clear your mind as a result.
If you know that you’re going to be indulging in a large amount of alcohol, we highly recommend getting some much needed hydration with our IV therapy first.
