If you’ve ever crossed multiple time zones and landed in your destination feeling mentally and physically exhausted, you’ve probably experienced jet lag. It can be frustrating especially if you’re just about to start your vacation or you need to head into an important meeting. Jet lag usually occurs after a long-distance flight which disrupts your routine> This can disrupt your sleep patterns as well as your appetite.. Fortunately, you don’t need to suffer until the feeling wears off on its own. IV therapy can help to bring about the quick relief you need so you can begin feeling like yourself again.
Why Jet Lag Occurs
To properly understand jet lag, you need to understand your body’s circadian rhythm. Put simply, this is your internal clock. It’s what helps your body to know what time of day it is. It regulates your eating and sleeping patterns and well as your blood pressure, metabolism, and body temperature. When you take long-haul flights and cross several time zones, your internal clock and the actual time of day are no longer in sync. That discrepancy causes the lethargy, sluggishness, nausea, and confusion associated with jet lag. The symptoms can last for days as your body tries to get back on track.
How IV Therapy Can Help
Air travel is also dehydrating even if you only travel a short distance. If you’ve taken a long-haul flight, you will, therefore, require lots of fluids. Your body will also need vitamins and nutrients to recover from the stress caused by sleep deprivation and travel. Unfortunately, drinking more water and eating nutrient-rich foods won’t give you an immediate boost. In fact, a large percentage of the nutrients you consume orally don’t get absorbed by the bloodstream.
However, an IV drip containing saline, anti-inflammatory ingredients and vitamins can be just what you to need to get your energy back. Hydration therapy can be used to provide additional amino acids to reduce anxiety, depression, and fatigue. Since you’ll rapidly absorb the vitamins and nutrients directly into your bloodstream, you’ll recover much faster than you otherwise would.
