Hydration therapy is exactly what it sounds like: intravenous hydration utilizing an infusion of medicines, vitamins, and nutrients, which works to replenish necessary lost fluids as quickly as possible. Dr. Jack Dybis, D.O., a surgeon and the co-founder and medical director at IVme Wellness + Performance of Chicago suggests hydration therapy to not only alleviate hangover symptoms, but to address the root causes of the situation.
"A major contributing factor to the aches and nausea associated with a hangover is dehydration and certain vitamin deficiencies," he says. "Our combination of expedited IV hydration, medications for pain and nausea, and vitamin additives will virtually eliminate your hangover and allow you to reclaim your day. Specifically we use Vitamin B complex, which includes vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. The B complex vitamins act together to increase energy, improve mood, decrease stress and stimulate the immune system among other benefits."
