Beat Your Hangover with IV Therapy in Newton

Summertime often looks like kicking back with a cold drink on a hot evening. Maybe you chill at a neighborhood barbeque with a drink cooler or go out for a party with some friends. No matter the situation, you may find yourself throwing back too many drinks and end up feeling crummy the next day. 

 

Having a hangover is no fun, and it takes forever to get over. When you’re finally able to get up the next day, you’re likely suffering from an extreme headache, dizziness, or sensitivity to light. Even though it’s good to relax and let loose, the consequences of too much alcohol don’t always seem worth it.

 

What if we told you that there’s a better way to recover from a hangover? IV therapy for hangovers replenishes your body with necessary hydration and nutrients that get sucked up by too much alcohol. That way you’re able to get back to life faster… and drink more responsibly next time.

 

After a Night of Partying… 

It’s easy to get wrapped up in an evening with friends, festivities, and drinks. If you’re not responsible, one drink may soon become too many, and you’ll find yourself with a nasty hangover the next day. 

 

Hangover symptoms are no fun but eventually fade with time. Most people experience headaches, nausea, dizziness, and sensory sensitivity during a hangover.

 

But alcohol consumption has greater, more serious effects than you may realize.

 

First, alcohol blocks the brain’s communication channels, affecting your mood, coordination, response time, and motor skills. This is one reason why drunk driving results in serious or fatal accidents.

 

Too much alcohol weakens the heart muscle, making it more stretchy and droopy. It also elevates blood pressure, which can lead to fatal health problems like stroke or heart attack. Someone who drinks too much at once or too much over time will likely experience an irregular heartbeat from excessive alcohol. 

 

Most people are aware of alcohol’s negative effects on the liver and pancreas. These organs filter toxins from the bloodstream, but they can’t keep up with excess levels of alcohol in the system. This leads to conditions like fibrosis, fatty liver, and pancreatitis. 

 

Finally, too much alcohol weakens the immune system and puts the body at higher risk for developing cancer in the head, neck, breasts, liver, and esophagus. 

 

There’s nothing wrong with kicking back for an evening, but it’s important to be aware of the short- and long-term impacts of too much alcohol. 

 

What is IV Therapy?

IV therapy may conjure images of your favorite sci-fi movie. But we can assure you that IV therapy isn’t something of the future… It’s being used by prestigious doctor practices like Five Journeys!

 

Here’s how IV therapy works:

 

Most people get vitamins and minerals through capsules or topical creams. But digestion and absorption take time, and the body doesn’t soak up the full amount of nutrients.

 

With IV therapy in Newton, key vitamins and nutrients are injected directly into the bloodstream, where they’re immediately used by the body. You can expect to feel better in minutes!

 

Treat Hangovers with IV Therapy

After those occasional nights of drinking too much, most people spend most of the next day nursing a headache or trying to keep food down. It takes a long time for the body to get back the nutrients and hydration it needs after a hangover.

 

With IV therapy, you can expect to recover quickly from a hangover. Our IVs give the body the hydration and nutrients it needs much faster and in a higher dose compared to food or supplements. In no time, you’ll be back to your day-to-day!

Is IV Therapy Safe?
