How to cure a Miami Hangover Fast
Hangovers are sometimes the morning-after misery of having spent a fun night out drinking with buddies or celebrating special occasions and holidays. It is a painful reminder that alcohol is actually a toxin and should only be consumed in moderation to avoid day-after sickness.
If you’ve ever had too much to drink, you are already familiar with the symptoms: a headache, dry mouth, sensitivity to light and sounds and even worse yet, nausea, dizziness and upset stomach. When you find yourself suffering from a hangover, the only thing you want is relief, and you need it fast.
While many “remedies” exists for hangover relief, none compare to hangover IV hydration therapy (Intravenous Therapy). The most effective way to alleviate the symptoms of a hangover is to establish proper hydration. IV drip therapy works by providing your body with essential fluids, electrolytes and vitamins directly into the bloodstream.
IV therapy re-establishes proper hydration not just from hangovers but also during times of illness. For decades, this medical treatment was only available at hospitals and specialized clinics, however, IV infusion therapy is now mainstream and is available most in major cities around the world as an outpatient, elective service.
IV Division, based in Miami Beach, provides customized IV drips to alleviate a variety of health ailments in the comfort of your own home or hotel room. With one quick call, reserve an appointment and one of our doctors or registered nurses will come to you to deliver relief from a dreaded hangover.
How Long Does a Hangover Last?
Every hangover is different, and the severity of hangover symptoms can vary greatly even for the same person. Generally, the hangover’s severity depends on several factors that took place prior to your drinking. For instance, it is anecdotally believed that hangovers get worse with age. Also, your level of hydration before and during your night or day of drinking contributes to how dehydrated you become. If your immunity is compromised even before drinking, such as having a common cold, or if you’ve had little food, changes are much higher that you will have a serious hangover.
These factors, combined with the ill effects of consuming alcohol take a toll on you physically and culminate in a bad hangover. Studies have shown the more alcohol you consume in a short span of time, the stronger the hangover symptoms will be.
Mild hangovers can last a few hours and up to a half day after a night of drinking before you start to feel relief. Mild hangovers generally resolve themselves with time.
For more serious hangovers, symptoms can last up to three days. Serious hangovers with vomiting and rapid fluid loss lead to dehydration. If your hangover includes diarrhea, sweating, or vomiting, you may be even more dehydrated. Dehydration is caused when you are not taking in enough water to replenish the fluids being lost by your body through normal body functions such as digestion, or when fluids are lost from vomiting.
“Often, we see patients who are severely dehydrated, which makes the hangover symptoms even worse and leads to longer recovery times,” said Dr. Jarred Mait, of IV Division in Miami Beach. IV Division is a boutique medical practice, founded by Dr. Jarred Mait, MD to offer re-hydration and vitamin infusion services to locals and visitors in South Florida.
Dehydration, while easily treatable, can cause many health problems. Dr. Mait added, “dehydration is the leading cause of complications from hangovers. Your body needs water for every function, without proper hydration, your body starts to shut down processes which lead to extreme fatigue, digestive problems, migraines and more.”
Dehydration is easily reversed by providing your body with fluids and electrolytes to bring your system back to a balanced state. The most effective way of doing this is by IV infusion therapy.
When to Seek Medical Help
If you were properly hydrated before drinking, alternated your alcoholic drinks with glasses of water, and limited your alcohol intake, chances are your hangover is mild and will resolve on its own within a few hours. However, if you consumed many alcoholic beverages in a short amount of time and are now suffering from a bad hangover, your recovery time will take longer. If you are unable to maintain fluids down and are experiencing nausea and vomiting, it is recommended you seek medical help as soon as possible to treat your hangover symptoms.
Reasons You Should Not Wait for a Hangover to be Over
“A common mistake we see at our practice often, is when people think they will rather wait out a hangover and hope for relief,” said Dr. Mait. “If the person is vomiting, they are already losing fluids rapidly. A hangover IV immediately will help reverse the ill effects of a hangover and speed up recovery.”
Here are three reasons why you should not simply wait for a hangover to end:
Dehydration – as already covered earlier, dehydration causes many problems and will take you longer to start feeling relief from a hangover. IV therapy helps by replenishing your body immediately with lost fluids and electrolytes essential for a balanced body.
Pain – Hangovers are usually associated with head and body aches, IV hangover infusion is specifically formulated to bring immediate relief for aches and pains. The longer you wait to book an IV therapy appointment, the longer you are subjected to migraines and aches.
Nausea – vomiting and digestive problems only lead to more dehydration, when these symptoms are present, it is important to get medical help. Dehydration, while easily treatable, can cause problems that take longer to resolve, including triggering a migraine.
The good news is that hangovers are quite common and quite manageable. With today’s advancements in medical services, IV therapy is easily accessible with one phone call to IV DIVISION. Next time you’re in bed and the room is spinning after a night (or day) of drinking, consider reserving an appointment for IV infusion therapy to cure hangovers.
