A night out on the town involving one too many drinks, can make all the difference between feeling a little sleepy and feeling like you are going to have several wakeful hours ahead of you, all filled with wondering about why you chose to drink as much as you did.
Not everyone who drinks what one might subjectively call “a lot,” suffers from a resultant hangover. Those who do, however, know all too well the feelings of nausea, brain fog, irritability, confusion, poor memory, and general malaise that come with it. Hangover sufferers often look for the quickest, most effective ways to alleviate their distress. And although there is no way to immediately detoxify your system, there are ways that can make a big, positive difference in how you feel.
What is a Hangover?
A hangover is a conglomerate of symptoms that result from imbibing in excessive amounts of ethyl alcohol, the ingredient in alcoholic beverages that makes us feel so bad. The symptoms most associated with a hangover, in addition to those listed above, include lightheadedness, pain, an inability to fall or stay asleep, restlessness, anxiety, sensitivity to light and sound, exhaustion, weakness, diaphoresis, and complete disorientation to place and time.
Hangovers are notoriously distressing, unpleasant, and for rather obvious reasons, not a state anyone chooses to be in for any length of time. As such, most hangover sufferers look for ways in which to curtail the length and severity of their after-drinking condition. While there are some tried and true ways to help diminish some of these consequences, there are other, newer ways that have proven incredibly restorative and invigorating.
IV Therapy for Hangovers
Intravenous therapy for a hangover is a terrific form of treatment, aimed at replacing the liquids your body has lost due to excessive sweating, as well as the diuretic effects of alcohol. By receiving vitamin and mineral enriched hydration directly into your bloodstream (instead of having to maneuver through the length of your GI tract), you are guaranteed to feel better, faster.
In addition to the ways in which an IV can alleviate your hangover symptoms, desired relief can be further potentiated when IV treatment is customized to your body and your particular presentation. To be sure, IV hydration for a hangover is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The more your IV therapy is designed for you, the better and more effective it can be.
The Best IV for Hangover Treatment
In order to fully restore your physical, emotional, and mental well-being, there are a number of ingredients your IV therapy should include.
B complex vitamins are an essential part of this treatment, as is Vitamin B12. The latter compound has the ability to provide instantaneous feelings of restored energy that make you feel a lot more like yourself. Glutathione, a molecular combination of glutamic acid, lysine, and cysteine, should also be included in your hangover IV treatment, as it contains anti-inflammatory properties and breaks down acetaldehyde, the main substance within drinkable alcohol that causes hangovers.
An ideal hangover IV treatment must also include some type of antiemetic that will prevent you from throwing up and keep nausea at bay. In addition, customized hangover treatment will include anti-inflammatories that are used to treat the aches and pains that so often occur as part of a hangover.
