How Hangover IV Therapy Can Ease Your Symptoms
With pro football season well underway, it isn’t uncommon for native Clevelanders to gather at local bars and restaurants to cheer for their favorite teams. The Flats East Bank and The Gateway District are just some of the city’s most popular destinations for bar crawlers and football fans, especially since Cleveland, Ohio was recently named the 5th best city for nightlife in the U.S. Locations such as Beerhead, Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. and The Clevelander are popularized by residents looking to share a drink and passionately discuss who they’re certain will win the upcoming game.
Of course, with such a wide variety of quality local and national beers as well as wines and mixed drinks available, comes the consequences of the dreaded Morning After – primarily, a nasty hangover. It’s common (and temporarily forgotten while out partying) knowledge that drinking too much alcohol causes a hangover, although the amount of alcohol that can trigger the symptoms depends on a number of factors – including age, tolerance, body weight and even how much food and water the individual ingests before, during and after the binge-drinking session. Hangover relief from our hangover IV therapy can be a balm for what ails you, however!
According to the Mayo Clinic, various factors that can contribute to a hangover include:
- Increased urination from alcohol, leading to dehydration
- An inflammatory response from your immune system, reacting to alcohol in the body
- Irritation to the lining of your stomach due to alcohol
- Blood sugar-level drops from the sugars in alcohol
- Blood-vessel expansion due to alcohol
- Sleepiness and stupor, leading to unconsciousness before food and water can be consumed to help balance-out the effects of the alcohol
Individually, these factors can cause mild irritation, but when paired together they can lead to nausea, vomiting, confusion, dizziness, headaches, sluggishness and more.
Before the creation of modern medicine, there were a few traditional hangover remedies that left this reader wondering if having a drink was even worth all of the trouble! Time Magazine’s “A Brief History of Hangovers” discusses some of the oldest hangover remedies known to man, including the oldest and most-widely known method, which was to simply keep drinking. Also called “the hair of the dog,” this method has been around as long as alcohol itself, with odd homemade concoctions and folkloric solutions like ground birds’ beaks, myrrh and even pickled sheep eyes following shortly thereafter as people realized that they simply couldn’t keep drinking forever!
Luckily, humanity has advanced past the point of ingesting questionable animal parts and herbs and onto more practical, science-based solutions. Hangover IV Therapy and IV Hydration Therapy are completely safe and effective methods for battling the less-appealing side effects of alcohol.
Benefits of the Hangover and Hydration IV Therapies include:
- Near-instant hydration
- Dehydration prevention
- Reduction of inflammation
- Increased metabolism
- Improved symptoms of allergies and asthma
- Detoxification of the body
There are even a number of add-on ingredients for IV therapy available with IV Restoration’s Hangover and Hydration IV Therapies, including Vitamin B12, Glutathione, MICC, Taurine and various amino acids. Alcohol acts as a diuretic and depletes a lot of necessary vitamins and nutrients from the body. Vitamin B is one of these that gets removed, and a sudden loss of this particular supplement can lead to extreme dizziness, fatigue and memory loss.
Similarly, clinical trials on the effects of glutathione on blood alcohol and hangover symptoms showed that glutathione played a significant role in homeostasis, especially as a potent antioxidant. The results showed it had a significant reducing effect on the subjects’ blood-alcohol levels. Methionine inositol choline cobalamin (MICC) is an antioxidant amino acid that neutralizes free radicals in the bloodstream and boosts energy levels by promoting B12 through the nervous system, among other benefits.
