Hangover Treatment Therapy Los Angeles

From Santa Monica to West Hollywood, Koreatown to Silverlake, there’s a bar or a club on every Los Angeles corner. And in order to avoid the LA traffic, you might as well just hold up at a bar for a while and have a couple of drinks. Of course, it’s easy to regret a night of drinking when you wake up the next day feeling terrible.

A hangover is like a rite of passage for a fun night out, but it can completely demolish any plans for a productive day. The good news is that there are some simple remedies in the Los Angeles area to get you back on your feet in no time. Here’s everything you need to know about I.V. therapy in LA to ease that hangover.

What Is a Hangover?

A hangover is a series of unpleasant symptoms that you might feel after a night of drinking. Typically, you start to feel them the morning after a night of drinking, but they can sometimes present the same night, depending on how much you drink.

Hangovers are caused by the dehydration you experience after having had too much to drink. Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it causes you to release more fluids from your body than other liquids. 

If you’re not drinking water during your night out, this means you’re losing more water than you’re consuming — which can lead to feelings of a hangover the following day.

When you do drink, it’s usually a good idea to try to drink a glass of water with every alcoholic beverage. But even then, a hangover can rear its ugly head when you least expect it.

Symptoms of a Hangover

You might not get hungover after a night of drinking, but they typically start when your blood alcohol content drops significantly close to zero. These symptoms are likely to present themselves the morning after a night of partying a bit too hard:

  • Upset stomach
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Decreased sleep or poor sleep quality
  • Mood disturbances, like irritability
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Muscle soreness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Dizziness and shakiness
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound
  • Inability to concentrate

Sometimes, a hangover can make it feel like the world is ending, but you probably will see your symptoms clear up in just a 24-hour period. However, if you notice someone near you experiencing severe symptoms, it might be a sign of alcohol poisoning.

You want to call 911 immediately if someone near you is exhibiting the life-threatening symptoms of alcohol poisoning, including:

  • Projectile vomiting
  • Unconsciousness (and an inability to be woken up)
  • Seizures
  • Irregular breathing
  • Low body temperature

With that said, most hangovers just lead to a frustratingly unproductive day after. But you don’t need to lose an entire day just because of a fun night.

How Can I Ease a Hangover With I.V. Infusions?

If your body is dehydrated, you naturally want to work to rehydrate it. And you can do that by drinking fluids. When you consume anything orally, many of the nutrients become metabolized before they are absorbed and utilized by the body. The bioavailability of a substance is the amount of a substance your body can actually use after consumption, and an intravenous (I.V.) solution is the only way to absorb 100% of a nutrient into the bloodstream.

Since I.V.s are infused directly into the bloodstream, they naturally become directly absorbed by the body. This makes it an effective method for helping with dehydration and other ailments. If you’ve ever had to go to the hospital, they’ve likely hooked you up to an I.V. drip to help hydrate you.

But you don’t need to go to a doctor’s office to get the benefits of an I.V. for a hangover. The I.V. Doc makes house calls, and we’ll come directly to the comfort of your home to administer a personalized treatment plan that will get you back on your feet in no time.

We’ve got plenty of different hangover treatments that are each aimed at supporting your holistic well-being. They’re even useful if you’re not feeling a hangover and just need a little boost. This is all thanks to the specially formulated cocktail of vitamins and minerals like vitamin B1 and sodium to stimulate thirst and give you more energy.

You don’t need to move a muscle in order to start feeling like the best version of yourself again. Schedule a consultation today to get an I.V. treatment in the New York area and stop letting a fun night ruin an otherwise productive rest of your day.

What Are Other Ways To Help With a Hangover?

While a liquid I.V. drip may be your best bet to improve the symptoms of a hangover and restore balance to your life, it’s not the only method. Here are some ways you can supplement the benefits of your I.V. with some traditional methods.

Drink More Water

Even though we know that drinking fluids doesn’t necessarily help a hangover as much as an I.V., you can still drink some liquids to make the effects of your I.V. last even longer. Drink some water or juice to replenish lost moisture from frequent bathroom trips during your night out.

You can also drink some electrolytes, which are essential nutrients and minerals, to get more energy. A simple trick is to add some salt to your water to increase sodium intake and stimulate thirst.

There’s a wive’s tale that says drinking more alcohol can make you feel better. This is often called taking the “hair of the dog,” and while it might make you feel better temporarily because of alcohol’s sedative effects, it will only make you feel worse once it wears off.

Take a Pain Reliever

Pain relief medications like Advil and aspirin can make you feel better, especially if muscle soreness or headaches are a symptom of your hangover. Just keep in mind that taking pain relievers on an empty stomach can irritate your stomach lining and lead to some issues. So, if you do plan to use a pain reliever, be sure to eat beforehand.

Also, keep in mind that pain relievers can address the discomfort of your hangover, but they won’t cure the hangover itself.

Sleep It Off

Part of the reason you might feel so hungover is just that you’re tired. Alcohol can make you fall asleep faster because of its sedative qualities, but it can affect the quality of your sleep — that’s why you often wake up after a night of drinking feeling super sluggish and tired.

So, try going back to sleep for a little while. By the time you wake up, your hangover might be completely gone.

Eat Some Hangover Foods

Foods high in carbohydrates can give you the energy you need to feel better. Carbs can also raise your blood sugar, giving you more fuel to take on the day. If you have an upset stomach, toast and crackers are a great way to ease into things.

But if you’re surrounded by the cuisine of Los Angeles, and you have an appetite, you can’t go wrong with some tacos, a breakfast burrito, some crispy fast food, or more. Noodle soups like pho or ramen are helpful because the salt in the broth can help replenish electrolytes and stimulate thirst so that you drink more fluids throughout the day.

Drink Some Coffee

The caffeine in coffee or tea might be able to help you snap out of the grogginess and fogginess that often coincides with heavy drinking. However, try to avoid drinking too much caffeine, as it could end up further dehydrating you. If you do reach for a cup of coffee, aim to follow it with a glass or two of water. 

In Conclusion

Hangovers are a frustrating side effect of having a fun night out. But since they’re caused by dehydration, drinking enough fluids, eating some carbs, and getting a bit more sleep might be easy enough for you to snap out of it.

But nothing will work as effectively as an I.V. treatment that can be directly absorbed by your body. And the I.V. Doc can deliver these infusions directly to your front door so you can feel better without needing to lift a finger.

Schedule a consultation today to stop letting a fun night out get in the way of a productive day in the Los Angeles area.
