Norovirus: The Winter Vomiting Bug - prevention and treatment

Each year, around 21 million people are struck by what is commonly referred to as “The Winter Vomitting Bug.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Norovirus leads to about 1.9 million visits to the doctor’s office and 400,000 trips to the ER – mostly during the cold months, hence the nickname. Your risk of getting sick increases by 50 percent every time a new strain develops.

Marathons, Obstacle Course Races, Triathlons: How to maximize endurance with IV fluid treatments

There is a science behind fueling for athletic endurance – one that serious athletes can’t afford to dismiss, especially when it comes to hydration. Competitive athletes push their bodies to the very edge and that requires effective hydration planning. Studies show that poor hydration leads to impaired performance because the fluid loss of one to two percent of body weight is enough to affect endurance. Inadequate hydration during an event means long recovery times, as well. This is something that New York athletes running the famous marathon know all too well.

On the other hand, the right fluid formula enhances your performance, reduces the impending thermal stress, keeps plasma volume balanced and delays fatigue. Competition is about strength and stamina, but it’s also about smart strategies that include IV hydration therapy. Whether you are a serious athlete or the occasional marathoner, proper hydration is the key to performing at peak and enjoying a quick recovery post competition.
