What is a Hangover
A hangover is a collection of unpleasant symptoms caused by heavy drinking. The most common side effects include headache, nausea, dizziness, confusion, and extreme thirst.
They can occur at any time, but most commonly occur the morning after a night of heavy drinking. You may experience elevated levels of anxiety and general discomfort. The severity of a hangover is closely linked to how much alcohol was consumed. A lack of sleep and hydration also contribute to hangover symptoms. Hangover symptoms depend on the individual and other factors.
Why Do We Get Them
Why do some people experience worse hangovers than others? Many studies link the severity of hangovers to age. However, some studies produced conflicting results. Another contributing factor is your choice of alcohol. Alcohol has varying amounts of compounds called congeners, which are produced during the fermentation process. Beverages high in congeners are linked to increased chance of hangovers. A few beverages that are high in congeners include brandy and red wine, while gin and vodka are alcohols known for having no congeners at all.
IV Hydro Therapy
At The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge, we want to help you say goodbye to hangovers for good! Our IV Hydro Therapy is designed to provide your body with a set of vitamins and nutrients essential to recovery. Treatment only takes about 35 minutes once the IV is placed and results are felt almost instantly. Healthy vitamin levels during a hangover are necessary for proper metabolism, sleep patterns, and cortisol levels. The therapy can also support your immune system as it recovers. All treatments are administered by a licensed health care professional and are painless (aside from IV entry).
