IV Infusion Therapy in Miami Beach for Migraines
When you have a lingering headache, ranging in severity from annoyingly dull to a pounding migraine, consider the amount of water you’ve consumed in the past day. The likely culprit for your pain could be that you are suffering from dehydration.
Migraines and cluster headaches are often the result of not drinking enough water. If this is your case, proper hydration can help treat and even prevent recurring episodes of migraines and headaches. If you suffer from chronic headaches, but are not able to drink enough water - either because of your busy schedule or your body’s absorption abilities are compromised by medication or physical ailments - IV Hydration Therapy can aid to boost your fluid intake.
IV Therapy (intravenous therapy), used in hospitals and clinics for decades to treat dehydration and deliver medicines intravenously, helps alleviate and prevent the on-set of migraines and headaches.
“Hydration is the key to wellness and feeling refreshed,” said Dr. Jarred Mait, owner and chief medical director of IV Division – a Miami based IV therapy service. “An IV infusion regulates your hydration levels with electrolytes and fluids. Clients typically start feeling hydrated within the same hour of receiving an IV treatment.”
Migraines and Headaches: Signs of Dehydration
For some, even mild dehydration can trigger a terrible migraine. A common dehydration headache, which is easily treatable and preventable, is caused by not having enough fluid in the body. Dehydration headaches can be relatively mild or as severe as migraines.
If you are not drinking plenty of water throughout the day, your body will trigger a set of physical responses to get you to remedy the lack of fluid intake:
The first indication is thirst. If your body’s automatic response for wanting more fluids is ignored, or you temporarily satisfy your thirst with sugary drinks like sodas or lattes, you can end up even more dehydrated as both sugar and caffeine have diuretic properties. This means that consuming drinks heavy in sugar and caffeine, will cause you to lose more water from your system than you are taking in, leading you to remain dehydrated.
Secondly; prolonged dehydration, even mild, leads to headaches. A simple step that may lower the risk of developing a headache, especially in warm weather, is to stay properly hydrated. Studies have shown that dehydration causes blood volume to drop, researchers say, resulting in less blood and oxygen flow to the brain and dilated blood vessels. Sounds scary, but in fact, this is easily reversed by getting more fluids back into your body. Experts also suspect that a loss of electrolytes, which happens when you’re dehydrated, causes nerves in the brain to produce pain signals, and voila – you have a headache.
These signs combined are clear indications that your body is begging you to drink more water.
Drinking plenty of water regularly and daily can help you stay healthy. Water is essential – it helps regulate your body’s temperature, lubricates your joints, protects soft tissues, and flushes waste and toxins from your body. Staying hydrated also helps relieve the frequency and intensity of headaches and recurring migraines.
Reasons You are Dehydrated
Not drinking enough water daily – bored, of plain water? Try infusing it with fruit slices to give it a hint of natural flavor.
High temperature and not enough water to counteract the loss of fluids, but everyone during any time of the year regardless of the temps outside is susceptible to dehydration.
Here are 4 ways in which IV Drip Therapy can help you:
Lessens the Occurrence of Migraines
Dehydration migraines occur when you are not well hydrated. A simple way to avoid these types of migraines is to remain consistently hydrated. IV Therapy can help you achieve your long-term hydration goals. If you are not receiving enough fluids by drinking water, the intravenous route of administering fluids is your best option for boosting hydration quickly and effectively. At IV Division, we recommend our Wellness IV formula for fluids and an added boost of essential vitamins, or Recovery Hydration IV for fluid recovery when you need it most.
Fast and Effective Treatment
If you already are suffering from a migraine, you want relief fast. IV Infusions are the fastest way to get fluids, nutrients, vitamins and medicine into your system. If the pain is forcing you to take a step back from your normal life, Ketorolac – a potent pain reliever and anti-inflammatory – is injected into the IV bag to remedy your symptoms.
Nourish Your Body With Electrolytes
IV hydration therapy provides your body with the correct blend of electrolytes needed to function properly. Electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and dextrose, and not just water alone, are needed to remain properly balanced. Consuming extremely large amounts of water alone (h2o) either by drinking or intravenously can have its own adverse and extremely dangerous effects on the body. That is why the IV solution must be properly balanced and must only be administered by an IV therapist, a highly trained medical professional.
Prevention is key to avoiding the worst effects of a dehydration headache or migraine. IV Therapy is safe to use as a preventative health method to maintain wellness. Since hydration is a building block for wellness, even if you don’t have consistent headaches, you can benefit from added hydration.
The daily demands of an active lifestyle and busy work schedules sometimes make it difficult to drink the recommended daily eight glasses of water or eat enough fruits and veggies to stay healthy. Chronic dehydration, even mild dehydration, can cause many problems to your health and even affect your energy levels and sleep patterns. If you’ve been feeling lethargic, fuzzy, and are reaching for ibuprofen more often than before, consider adding more glasses of water to your daily routine, or booking IV therapy sessions.
So, next time you feel like reaching for a sugary drink or that second cup of coffee, reach for water instead. If you are suffering from constant headaches, and know you’re not drinking enough water, make an appointment with an IV therapist for a hydration IV Drip that is customized to your needs.
