DEHYDRATION & HANGOVERS
There are countless home remedies and claims to “cures” for hangovers and dehydration on the internet, but do they really work? That sports drink might help, or it might not. The same applies to a greasy breakfast, the hair of the dog, ginger ale, tomato juice, black coffee, energy shots, probiotic shots and other wellness potions. It might work. It likely won’t.
On the other hand, IV hydration with antioxidants, anti-nausea medication, and vitamins is a guaranteed fast fix for your hangover blues. We will provide all the care needed to get you back to your busy life and back on your feet as quickly as possible. Our professionals know exactly what you need. The fluids from the IV bag go directly into your bloodstream, rehydrating you much more quickly than anything that has to go through your digestive system first. (Plus, you can’t throw it up.)
Our custom blended Hydration Therapy IV nutrition is loaded with all the good stuff your tired body needs: the saline solution base carries a healthful cocktail of vitamins, electrolytes and other needed nutrients directly into your bloodstream. You’ll perk up and be out the door in less than an hour from sitting in the chair.
Moderation, lots of hydration before bed and maybe a couple of aspirin are good ways to prevent alcohol-related dehydration. But if you weren’t able to prevent that hangover, at least you have the means to quickly fix it! You don’t even need an appointment.
If you are suffering from dehydration thanks to something less fun, like food poison or norovirus, we can patch you up quickly too. The same IV bypass of your already irritated digestive system will help you recover more quickly when you can’t keep food or liquids down, no matter the reason.
Come on by one of our Walk-in Clinics and get yourself feeling back to normal and on your feet, fast!
MAKE IT GO AWAY
Dehydration and Hangovers can result in mild to serious symptoms and complications. Whether you’ve had the flu or enjoyed a few too many libations, you can feel better fast with Hydration Therapy at Urgent Care 24/7.
But the morning after doesn’t have to be miserable! There’s no reason you have to suffer through a throbbing headache, nausea, sensitivity to light and sounds all day after a night out on the town or a bad blind date with a stomach bug or food poisoning. Here at Urgent Care 24/7, we treat a wide array of ailments including dehydration and hangovers!
The symptoms of a hangover are caused by the dilation of blood vessels leading to too much blood flow to the head. That in turn causes the throbbing headaches associated with drinking. The dehydration comes from the effect alcohol has on a hormone called ADH (anti-diuretic hormone). When ADH is inhibited by alcohol, it causes frequent urination of fluids your body needs, leading to dehydration.
What is your body missing when you get dehydrated? Your levels of valuable electrolytes, including sodium, potassium and magnesium are lower than they should be. Those all affect your nervous system, making you feel sluggish and slow on the draw. Water soluble B vitamins and Vitamin C are also in short supply when you’re dehydrated. Vitamin C is, of course, essential to immunity. B vitamins are critical to energy levels; when they’re low, so are you!
One way to replace some of these needed nutrients is slowly sipping on a non-caffeinated sports drink such as Gatorade or Powerade…if you can keep it down. If you can’t, come see us!
