The holiday season is a time to gather with family and friends to share fun, plenty of food, and for some of us, alcohol. This is especially true for New Year’s Eve, when alcohol consumption is higher than usual, even among people who don’t typically indulge. Many revelers who join in on the December 31 festivities continue the good times well into the early hours, but all too soon the fun ends when hangovers kick in. But what if you could ring in the New Year and skip the hangover? Thanks to Chai Urgent Care’s IV therapy, you can ward off the discomfort with a simple hangover cure.
Why Are Hangovers So Hard to Handle?
There’s no denying that hangovers are horrible. There’s that pesky sensitivity to light and nausea – not to mention the pounding in your head. And while these symptoms are bad enough, other issues presented by hangovers can cause more serious problems if ignored. These include:
- Fatigue or sluggishness
- Loss of nutrients and vitamins
- Dizziness and/or confusion
- Body aches
In some cases, hangover symptoms keep us from enjoying our time off or having a productive day. But less fortunate individuals find themselves completely incapacitated after a night out and require a boost to feel better.
The Hangover Cure
You may have tried eating certain foods, drinking sports drinks, or even supplements purchased online to combat hangovers. Many of those tips and tricks don’t work, but you’re in luck: IV therapy is extremely effective. This treatment supplies your body with everything it needs after overindulging on New Year’s Eve.
IV drips are prepared with a mixture of essential vitamins, electrolytes, and other nutrients known to minimize or even completely eliminate hangover symptoms. The fluids give you necessary water to avoid dehydration and flush the liver, while the electrolytes and vitamins replace those lost to help you feel energized, focused, and alert. IV bags may also contain small doses of painkillers and other medications that help get you back on your feet more quickly.
Once the IV is placed, the treatment rapidly reaches the bloodstream and begins working right away. This makes IV therapy far more efficient than other options, as it bypasses the slow-moving digestive tract for fast relief.
If you’re dealing with the effects of a hangover, IV therapy is a great choice. But you can also take a few simple steps to help avoid or minimize hangovers before they begin. Even if you still require IV therapy, these tips can help reduce the duration and severity of your discomfort after a night of New Year’s Eve drinking:
- Eat before going out
- Avoid mixing drug and alcohol
- Get a good nights’ rest the day before
- Drink plenty of fluids
If you still experience severe symptoms after following these tips, resting, and receiving IV therapy, you may need to see a doctor a second time. Be sure to let your care provider at Chai Urgent Care know if your symptoms worsen.
