Easy Hangover Remedies that Work

ElevationHydration-Blog-Hangover.jpg

After a night of partying, you wake up feeling as if you were hit by a train. But you don’t have time to just lay around all day in the hope that your hangover will go away on its own. In the past, you went online and found some crazy concoction that guaranteed to eliminate your hangover. Unfortunately, it only made you feel worse. Keep reading to check out which hangover cures actually live up the hype.

 

  1. Make a Virgin Mary - Many folks believe that a Bloody Mary is the beverage of choice when it comes to ditching that hangover. However, the worst thing you can do is have another drink. Keep in mind that those nasty hangover symptoms stem from the toxins in alcohol. So stick to tomato juice and give your body a chance to recover.

  2. Eat light - Maybe you already know the importance of getting food back into your system following a night of drinking. While a greasy breakfast sounds appetizing, it’s probably not the best choice. Skip the pile of bacon and opt for easy-to-digest foods such as toast or cereal.

  3. Take some Alka-Seltzer - This one’s a bit tricky. Alka-Seltzer can settle symptoms of queasiness by neutralizing stomach acid. On the other hand, ingredients such as aspirin and citric acid may irritate your stomach. If you choose Alka-Seltzer, tread lightly.

  4. Drink a small amount of coffee - If you’re under the impression that multiple cups of coffee can be the solution to your hangover, think again. Caffeine narrows your blood vessels and raises blood pressure, worsening your symptoms. Should you absolutely need that morning cup of joe, go with a very small amount and wait about an hour until drinking more.

  5. Take a multivitamin - There’s next to no evidence surrounding the effectiveness of hangover pills. Rather than pay the hefty cost of these, take a multivitamin instead. It will restore the nutrients in your body that you may have lost the night before.  

  6. Consume water and sports drinks - Neither provide a cure, however, water and sports drinks replace the fluid you’ve lost. Whether you choose water, juice, gatorade, or a combination of the three, chances are that you’ll feel less miserable.

  7. Take pain relievers - Anti-inflammatory pain relievers can provide some relief. Just be sure to take the advised dosage and avoid taking with alcohol.

  8. Exercise - This seems crazy, right? Your head is pounding, you feel nauseous, and you’re sensitive to light. Believe it or not, though, a gentle workout could help you feel better. By gentle, we mean light stretching, yoga, or a walk. The last thing you should do is attempt some sort of high-intensity workout.

  9. Cold shower - Are you in need of an immediate energy boost despite having hangover symptoms? A brief cold shower should do the trick. Whatever you do, steer clear of “sweating out” the alcohol at a sauna. This can cause potentially dangerous blood vessel and blood flow changes in the body. It’s even been proven that sauna bathing while hungover carries significant health risks such as drops in blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythms.   

  10. Sleep - If you’re to sleep off the symptoms the next day, take the opportunity. Sometimes it’s best to just rest and let your body work its healing magic.

How IV Therapy Can Help Your Hangover

Are you looking for a proven hangover cure that’s different from traditional methods? IV therapy from Elevation Hydration may be for you. IV oxygen therapy is one of the safest, quickest, and most effective ways to deliver vital nutrients to the body. At Elevation Hydration, we use only the purest forms of essential vitamins and nutrients for our hydration packages. Our innovative method allows these nutrients to bypass the stomach, meaning they’re available for immediate use.

Our IV vitamin therapy team understands that hangovers are no fun. It’s why we created The Hang(over) hydration package. This hangover treatment consists of IV fluids that are intended to bring you back from the dead after a night of drinking! Take advantage of a mix of B-Complex vitamins, Toradol for headaches, and Zofran for nausea. For less than $100, you get all of this infused into one liter of hydration.


Don’t let your next hangover ruin an entire weekend. Instead, schedule your IV therapy session with Elevation Hydration.  

Get to Know the Ins and Outs of Altitude Sickness

If you’re new to Colorado, then you might have already experienced altitude sickness. WebMD explains that altitude sickness occurs when you can’t get sufficient oxygen from the air at high altitude. As a result, you may deal with symptoms such as loss of appetite, headaches, and trouble sleeping. This blog post will not only define altitude sickness but also detail some treatments available at Elevation Hydration.

Identifying Altitude Sickness

Folks who aren’t used to high altitudes and go quickly from a lower altitude to higher ones are most susceptible to sickness. Keep in mind that fitness level does not play a role in whether a person gets altitude sickness. What exactly does it feel like? For some, altitude sickness is comparable to having a hangover. Serious cases of altitude sickness can lead to confusion, not being able to walk straight, feeling faint, and having blue or gray lips/fingernails. Make it a point to be aware of your breathing in high altitude, as you may hear a sound like a paper bag being crumpled. Should you be experiencing this symptom, seek medical attention immediately.

Diagnosing Altitude Sickness

A lot of people mistake altitude sickness for the flu, a hangover, or dehydration. If you choose to see your doctor regarding symptoms, he or she will perform an examination to rule out other conditions. They will also ask if you’ve been drinking fluids, and if so, what kinds. Don’t be surprised if they also ask about current medications and whether or not you have a cold.

Treating Altitude Sickness

Ideally, your best bet is to go to a lower altitude. With that in mind, your body may just need some time to get used to the change. So take a little while to rest, especially at the beginning of your time in Colorado. Drink plenty of water and don’t overdo it with physical activity. Altitude sickness is not the same for everyone, but symptoms usually last anywhere from 12 hours to several days. Medical professionals recommend taking over-the-counter medicine to combat the effects of headaches that come with altitude sickness.

IV Therapy Hydration for Altitude Sickness

There are times when you just can’t avoid altitude sickness. In that case, you need a surefire treatment for altitude sickness. That’s exactly what you get with Elevation Hydration. At our IV vitamin therapy clinic in Colorado Springs, we use IV fluids to get you back to peak performance. One of our IV oxygen therapy options is The Incline. This solution is designed for those who need some quick and efficient recovery from the altitude. Our IV hydration therapy expert incorporates a mix of B-Complex vitamins (including B-12), as well as amino acids to help oxygenate muscles to fight fatigue. We even go the extra mile and include a can of Boost Oxygen so that you’ll have no trouble conquering the altitude!

Get to Know Us

We don’t give our bodies enough credit. On a daily basis, we expect them to fight off disease and protect against toxins. Meanwhile, we’re juggling hectic work schedules, social calendars, and family life. The reality is that these deadlines can lead to a combination of poor nutritional choices and little exercise. However, our bodies continue to power through as much as possible. Over time, our bad habits turn into lifestyles. It’s not surprising that 50 percent of people taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient. Why? In our fast food-driven society, we fail to consume the necessary foods that enable us to perform at optimum capacity. Down the road, these micronutrient deficiencies can result in poor memory, loss of sleep, fatigue, decreased immune function, and other setbacks.

 We founded our IV therapy facility because we have a passion getting Coloradans back to their active lifestyle. Our team doesn’t believe in simply masking health issues with short-term solutions such as potentially dangerous over-the-counter medications. Instead, we make it a point to boost our immune functions naturally to let the body do what it does best and that’s heal and stay healthy.  

IV Hydration Therapy

Keep in mind that this is one of the safest, quickest, and most effective ways to deliver vital nutrients to our bodies. The IV vitamin therapy options that we provide make the perfect treatment for altitude sickness, migraine treatment, hangover treatment, or jet lag treatment. It’s no secret that Colorado Springs is a hotbed for elite athletes and Olympians in particular. That’s why we carry several hydration treatment packages for athletic recovery.

You can feel comfortable knowing that Elevation Hydration uses only the purest forms of essential vitamins and nutrients for all of our packages. With IV oxygen therapy, the nutrients bypass the stomach and are not affected by intestinal absorption, making them available for immediate use. What does this mean for you? You’re getting 100 percent of the vitamins your body craves and nothing else! By staying properly hydrated, the body instinctively remains healthy, repairs, rebuilds, and fends off invading organisms.

How It Works

Ready to get started? You’ll first come to our office and fill out a brief medical questionnaire. We then sit down with you to understand your needs and select the most appropriate hydration package. Sessions typically last no longer than 45 minutes and there’s no downtime involved once you’re done! Best of all, you don’t have to concern yourself with co-pays or long waits. When you come to us, our mission instantly becomes getting you back to your active lifestyle as quickly as possible.

There shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach in terms of IV fluids. We understand that each of our customer’s needs are different, which is why we carry a variety of hydration packages. At Elevation Hydration, you can take your pick from the following:

  • Hydration for athletes - Weekend Warrior or The Olympus
