Q. Can IV Therapy Help With Hangovers?

The main objective of IV Therapy for a hangover is to help you rehydrate quickly. The fluids that are in an IV cocktail can help you do so in anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. This is because the fluids don’t have to go down the throat and be processed in the digestive system. It would be administered directly into the bloodstream and distributed throughout your body. This can help you recover from that brain fog and would allow your muscles to work properly. It can even help flush out toxins like any extra alcohol or second-hand smoke if you were in a smoky environment.

Q. What Are IM Shots?

The IM stands for intramuscular. Intramuscular shots are injections of substances that are injected directly into the muscle. It is one of a variety of alternative methods to deliver substances into the body without the involvement of the digestive system.

Difference Between IM and IV

IV, or intravenous, injections are administered into the bloodstream either by a syringe or by a low pressure method known as a drip. The intramuscular shots are administered into the muscle, not the vein. Your muscles have a greater number of blood vessels that are also larger than the subcutaneous tissue.

Q. How Can They Help Me?

The benefits that IM shot offers generally depend on the type of shot that you’re taking. One benefit that they all have in common is that they’re fast in both delivery and reaping the rewards. It doesn’t take long to administer them, and it doesn’t take long for them to reach the desired area and start working.

Q. How long does an IV treatment take?

Since everyone’s body is different every treatment can take a different amount of time. Some people are able to get a full 1000 ml treatment in about 45 minutes, for others that same treatment will take around an hour. We ask that you set aside at least an hour to receive IV hydration treatment.

Q. What are the signs of dehydration?

Dehydration symptoms can range from mild to severe. In mild to moderate cases, a person will experience the following manifestations:

  • Increased thirst
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid breathing
  • Dry lips
  • Dry tongue

Severe dehydration cases will make a person experience the following symptoms:

  • Rapid heart rate
  • Severe dizziness that doesn’t allow the person to stand or walk
  • Confusion
  • Lethargy
  • Fever
  • Poor skin elasticity — if you pinch it, it goes back to its original position slowly
  • No urine output — or little urine that’s dark yellow or amber
  • Seizures

Q. What are the benefits of a hydration infusion?

1. It works faster. When a person takes hydration orally, they have to wait for the fluids to go through the gastrointestinal tract. This can take a long time. On the other hand, since hydration infusion is inserted directly into a vein, the solution goes straight into your bloodstream, which provides a faster absorption than when taken orally.

2. Shorter recovery time. Since the vitamins, electrolytes, and nutrients in hydration therapy reach your bloodstream immediately, you’ll start feeling better much sooner than if you take oral hydration.

3. It detoxifies your system. Immediate hydration improves blood supply to vital organs — such as your liver and kidneys., In turn, this allows them to flush out toxins from your body more efficiently.

4. It’s easier on your digestive system. In severe cases of dehydration, attempting to drink a large amount of fluids can overload your digestive system. This causes it to flush out what you’re drinking without actually absorbing the vitamins, electrolytes, and nutrients your body needs to recover.

Q. Remind me again why I can’t just start chugging water if I need fluids?

Whenever you drink fluids, your large intestine gets first dibs. So it will soak up most of what you send its way before the rest of your body can benefit. If you down massive amounts of water too quickly, it can upset your digestive system and may even cause your sodium levels to drop to dangerous levels. If you’re dehydrated, IV fluids can get the job done more quickly and efficiently than drinking water.
