Living in Florida offers wonderful opportunities for fun and exploration. But what happens if you overdo it and need a little help feeling like yourself again? You probably don’t want to deal with the hassle and expense of the emergency room, and you may not feel like getting dressed and going out at all, especially if your symptoms may be contagious.
If you’re feeling tired or under the weather, convenient and comfortable home IV therapy can give you the fluids, vitamins and electrolytes you need to start feeling better. Below we’ll discuss several reasons for IV therapy in Florida and how this treatment can help.
1. Too Much Sun
We all know Florida as the Sunshine State for a good reason. Its 237 days of sunshine a year mean you can spend tons of time boating, waterskiing, fishing, partying on the beach and generally having fun in the sun.
If you spend too much time outdoors or overexert yourself in the hot Florida weather, you can easily become dehydrated. As your body sweats, it loses the fluids and electrolytes you need to keep functioning at your best. You may become tired, weak, dizzy, thirsty and headachy. By the time you reach that point, drinking several glasses of water won’t do much good right away. Your body takes time to process the water you drink, so you may feel ill for a while longer.
IV hydration, on the other hand, gives you quick and effective dehydration relief. It restores the lost fluids and electrolytes directly into your bloodstream to get you feeling better quickly.
2. Food Poisoning
Florida is home to so much fantastic cuisine. Spending a night on the town sampling the shrimp, ceviche, oysters, ropa vieja, Key lime pie and alligator etouffee is a great way to give your taste buds an unforgettable experience. Every so often, something you eat may not agree with you. If you can’t keep food or liquids in your stomach, your body will quickly become dehydrated — and dehydration can make your body feel even worse. Drinking water or broth likely sounds unappealing if you’re nauseated.
Fortunately, IV therapy can help you start feeling better without having to put anything into your irritated stomach. An IV drip packed with healthy, restorative fluids and nutrients like zinc, vitamin C and a vitamin B12 complex can rehydrate you and boost your immune system to help you fight off the microbes that invaded your digestive tract. You can also elect to have anti-nausea medicines, heartburn reducers and anti-inflammatory substances in your IV drip to relieve some of your nausea and discomfort.
3. Recovering From Intense Exercise
Florida’s 3,000 lakes and thousands of miles of coastline lend themselves to unique opportunities for fun and exercise. Whether you’re cycling along the coast, sailing, scuba diving, golfing, playing volleyball or doing yoga on the beach, Florida gives you tons of ways to have fun pushing your body to its limits.
If you’ve just finished an exhausting weekend of golf or water fun and your muscles need relief, give yourself a head start on your recuperation with IV therapy. Choosing an IV drip full of beneficial nutrients like magnesium, zinc, taurine and a vitamin B complex can help replenish your body and boost your energy levels.
4. Revitalizing After an Epic Week or Weekend
Say you’ve decided to take in the sights or party hard all weekend. Maybe you have guests in town and want to experience Florida’s world-renowned theme parks with them or celebrate by immersing yourself in the nightlife. All that fun will give you memories to last a lifetime — and it can wear your body down in the present. Maybe your muscles ache after a couple of days of nonstop walking or dancing. Maybe your stomach is upset after a weekend of delicious junk food and going on rides. Or possibly a little too much nighttime partying has left you hungover and dehydrated.
In any of these scenarios, IV therapy can work wonders. An IV drip containing fluids and nutrients like zinc and magnesium can quickly rehydrate your overexerted body. It can also reduce muscle inflammation and soothe your aches and pains to have you feeling more like yourself.
5. Dealing With a Migraine
The effects of overexerting yourself at Florida’s exciting attractions can also extend to migraines. If you drink too much, sleep too little or push yourself through stressors without taking time to relax, you could trigger a migraine if you’re predisposed to them. If that happens, you’ll likely be in for several hours of discomfort — everything from a severe headache to photosensitivity to nausea and vomiting.
Getting IV therapy as soon as you feel a migraine coming on can help you feel much better. Choosing an IV drip that contains nutrients like vitamins B and C can help reduce inflammation and relieve your migraine symptoms. You can also add anti-nausea and headache medicine to provide additional relief.
6. Boosting Energy and Focus
Living in Florida means lots of fun and sun — and plenty of hard work as well. Whether you have a tough exam, an important job interview, an audition or a hard day at work coming up, you’ll want to be well rested, energized and focused so you can give it your best shot. Coffee and energy drinks are often go-to choices, but they can also contain high levels of unhealthy sugars or come with unwanted side effects like jitteriness and insomnia.
IV therapy can help here too. An IV treatment packed with hydrating fluids, electrolytes and B vitamins can help you naturally boost your mood, energy and attention to give you the best chance of success.
