Energize Your Body Without Caffeine

How to Energize Your Body Without the Crashing

We all desire to rekindle the energy of our youth and go back to the days where we could operate for endless hours without side support of caffeine. Read on to learn more about how you can improve your energy level without the dehydrating effects of caffeine.

 

energize without caffeine

 

  1. Hydration

Water is root of energy, clarity, and health. Your body needs half its weight in ounces of water daily to feel hydrated and properly energized. Most of us don’t have the time or desire to chug 50 or more ounces of water daily. So, what is an alternative option? Vida-Flo created hydration therapy as a fast and effective way to hydrate the body and boost energy levels. The process takes 45 minutes and involves an IV to inject vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes directly into the body. The resulting effects is increased energy levels, immune system boost, and glowing radiant skin.

 

  1. Sleep

It seems logical that if you’re tired sleep is the remedy, but with busy schedules most of us can’t get the recommended 6 – 8 hours of sleep. If your schedule does not allow you to sleep enough, then improving the quality of your sleep can help you feel more energized. Ditch the cell phone close to bedtime and sleep in a room with complete darkness to help you fall asleep faster and deeper. During the day if you feel like taking a nap, set an alarm for 25 – 33 minutes to allow yourself a full cycle of sleep. You will wake up feeling energized and less groggy.

 

  1. Nutrition

Food is fuel. If you are eating tons of fast food, your body will feel exhausted quickly. If you desire to feel more energized, opt for better food choices. Super foods such as avocados, eggs, quinoa, and bananas, help to provide the body with fiber and proteins with an aid in the providing energy. Making healthy snack decisions throughout the day also helps to maintain energy levels.

 

 

Kick the caffeine to the curb and regain your body’s natural level of energy. The Vida-Flo hydration therapy can help you feel younger and more energized.

 

How to Improve Eczema Naturally and Effectively!

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is the skin condition that causes red, dry, and itchy skin.

Affecting both adults and children, the condition is commonly seen in the creases of elbows, behind knee caps and even on the neck and face. If you suffer from eczema then you understand the condition is uncomfortable, unsightly, and can feel uncontrollable at times. While there is no known cure, but there are natural remedies for eczema. Read on to learn more about how to improve eczema with Vida Flo’s hydration therapy.

1. Hydrate

Our bodies are made up of over 70% water, so health is synonymous with hydration. Most people don’t get the daily recommended consumption of water. With so many beverage options at our disposal, choosing water can seem like the least inspiring option. Here at Vida-Flo, we understand the importance of water and we know that drinking it isn’t the only way to get its various benefits. We recommend hydration therapy as an alternative method for those who struggle with their daily intake of water.

The Vida-Flo hydration therapy method is applied through an IV and uses 1000ML bags that consists of normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride), electrolytes of potassium, calcium, minerals, and lactate. These ingredients are all natural, but aren’t usually found in bottled water which is often stripped of the vital nutrients your body needs to maintain adequate hydration levels. Hydration therapy will give your skin the internal moisture it needs which can help to decrease the symptoms of eczema.

2.  Moisturize

If are wondering how to improve eczema, then you need to understand the role of topical moisture. It is critical for you to apply a layer of moisturizer to your skin twice daily. We recommend a natural moisturizer like unrefined shea butter which is rich in vitamin A and vitamin E. This will also help to improve the appearance of dark marks and scars. Shea butter may seem like a heavy, creamy, and thick moisturizer but it is quickly absorbed by the skin, so you won’t look or feel greasy long after you apply it.

3.  Soften your water

Our skin is our body’s largest organ and when we shower we absorb the water directly into our skin. Unfortunately, the water that comes from our shower isn’t the best for our skin especially when it is considered to be hard water. Hard water is contains higher levels of calcium and magnesium. Exposure to hard water can significantly enhance the symptoms of eczema. By placing a water softener over your shower head, you can shield yourself from hard water deposits and reduce the absorption of high levels of calcium and magnesium in your skin.

4.  Use natural soaps and detergents

If you suffer from eczema, you can greatly benefit from natural soaps and detergents. Traditional soaps contain ingredients like sodium lauryl, laureth sulfate, dioxane, parabens, propylene glycol, diethanolamine, and fragrances. These chemicals are not only hard to pronounce, but they also can trigger eczema flare ups. Opt for a more natural alternative like castile soap which is oil based and natural and can be used to wash your skin and clothes.

5.  Eliminate food allergens

Often times eczema is a result of food allergens. If you have never been tested for food allergies you may be consuming the foods that are causing your discomfort. A simple food allergy test can help you identify the foods that are not compatible with your body, so you can begin to make informed food decisions.

There are many natural remedies for eczema, but here at Vida-Flow, we encourage you to experience the wonders of hydration therapy. Schedule your first appointment today by clicking here.

Vida-Flo Speaks: The Benefits of Glutathione

The benefits of glutathione may be the best thing you’ve never heard of!

Here at Vida-Flo, we recently introduced a new standard in hydration therapy which uses glutathione, an antioxidant naturally present in fruits and vegetables. Our glutathione package aids in preventing damage to important skin cells caused by free radicals and this service has several other benefits as well. Read on to learn more about the various benefits of glutathione hydration therapy.

Reduces Dark Marks and Evens Skin Tones

Glutathione is a natural skin brightener and is used commonly in cosmetics to lighten and reduce the appearance of dark marks and acne scars. The resulting effect is a bright and even skin tone for all shades of skin.

If you have tried dozens of products that promise to rid your skin of blemishes, scars, and dark marks only to be disappointed with the results, you will benefit greatly from introducing Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy with glutathione to your system. While there are several ways to use glutathione, we have found that when combined with hydration therapy, results are seen much faster, so you can enjoy healthy radiant skin sooner.

Anti- Aging Benefits

Our bodies need a balanced level of antioxidants to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance. When skin is exposed to UV rays, free radicals are created which causes oxidative stress, degradation of collagen, and an over-production of melanin (responsible for your tan). Over time, exposure to the sun rays can result in premature aging of the skin.

At Vida-Flo, we use glutathione combined with hydration therapy to combat the free radicals that cause oxidative stress and reverse the damage caused by harmful sun rays. This means your skin will look and feel softer and younger.

Reduced Inflammation and Redness

Inflammation is the body’s way of initiating healing responses. However, inflammation that is unregulated can result in excessive free radical activity and tissue destruction. Many of us experience inflammation so regularly that we don’t even recognize it as such, but most discomfort, itching, or redness in our skin is an indicator of inflammation.

Kick the discomfort by fighting inflammation from within! Our hydration therapy with glutathione will help your body to regulate its healing processes and reduce the itchy redness associated with inflammation.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy with glutathione has these benefits and many more. Get started today with your customized hydration treatment at your local Vida-Flo location.

The Overall Benefits of Hydration Therapy

Hydration therapy is a revolutionary treatment developed by Vida-Flo to quickly and effectively rehydrate your body! 

This treatment is used by professional athletes and everyday people as a dehydration treatment. Here are a few facts and benefits of Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy.

Beauty and Wellness

Water is the foundation of beauty and wellness. Most people aren’t getting enough water to keep them looking and feeling great. Even those who drink the recommended amount of water can still experience the effects of dehydration, which includes dry mouth, exhaustion, and headaches. This is because not all water is created equally and after undergoing processing, most bottled water has become acidic. Human bodies need to maintain a balanced pH level to feel healthy which means alkalized hydration is key.

Vida-Flo is a leading dehydration clinic that specializes in hydration therapy to provide alkalized hydration that is packed full of essential electrolytes to truly replenish the body. The effects of adequate hydration include glowing and even-toned skin, reduced blemishes and healthy hair. It’s a fact that looking good feels good, so wellness begins from within!

Energy and Revitalization 

Your energy levels deplete when you are dehydrated, which means you can’t perform your best in your favorite physical activities. In addition, when you sweat, you lose essential salt that your body needs to function at full capacity while active. If you are exercising while dehydrated, you are more likely to sustain injuries, you will have a harder time losing fat, and your body will feel sore much longer.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy is used by top athletes and sports professionals, because it is an effective way to prevent physical fatigue and recover faster. Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy is applied through an IV and uses 1000ML bags that consists of normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride), which replaces vital salt lost in exercise. The bags also contain electrolytes of potassium, calcium and lactate, which are essential to fat loss and speedy muscle recovery. Exercise is a great way to boost your energy and with proper hydration your body will perform at its highest capacity.

Illness Recovery

The occasional cold is a normal part of life. Germs easily travel from surfaces into our systems and cause us to experience congestion, stuffy noses, sore throats, and variety of other symptoms. Having a cold is normal, but feeling sick for more than 3 days isn’t. Most common cold related hospital visits are treated simply with hydration therapy.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy can beat the common cold. Save yourself a trip to the medic and get a hydration boost that will help your immune system fight the common cold and prevent future illnesses.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy has these benefits and many more. Get started today with your customized hydration treatment at your local Vida-Flo!

Golf Tip #1: Align The Clubface

Whether you’re a golf professional or a novice to the game, one of the most common mistakes people make when golfing is improper alignment. While some people think they should align their feet with the target, others try to align their shoulders parallel to it. The correct way to align your shots is to begin by first assessing your target from behind the ball. This can help give you a perspective on the entire hole, and will help you aim in your club in the right direction. Before you make your golf stance, set the clubface behind the golf ball and try to align it directly at the target. If you watch much golf on TV, you’ve probably noticed that PGA Tour players have a knack for aligning their clubhead in this fashion.

Golf Tip #2: Choosing The Right Clubs

Many new golf players will choose which club they used based on the length of the club. More experienced golfers, however, know that there’s more to selecting a club than the length of it. When choosing the best club for your shot, it’s important to consider other things like your natural shot tendencies, the wind, and any other hazards that may be lurking in prime landing areas.

Golf Tip #3: Stay Hydrated

Did you know that water helps your muscles and joints work better? When you make a point to stay hydrated on the golf course, you enable your body to provide adequate circulation to both your muscles and your joints. When you maintain proper hydration and electrolyte balance during an outdoor activity, it will:

  • Optimize your athletic potential on the golf course
  • Provide you with enough energy to make it through 18 holes
  • Reduce the likelihood of cramps
  • Allow your heart to work more efficiently

If you’re looking for a fast and efficient way to hydrate your body before you hit the green, consider stopping by Vida-Flo in Breckenridge. We offer IV hydration therapy to help provide you with the vitamins and energy agents you need to perform your best on and off the golf course. Our hydration therapy treatments can also be used for a variety of common ailments including a cold or flu, athletic overexertion, migraines, and even hangovers. Book a treatment online today!

Golf Tip #4: Making A Good Grip

Great golf players always have a fundamentally solid grip. To start, grip the club with your gloved hand and try to emphasize the handle’s placement in your fingers between the first knuckle and your palm. Once your gloved hand is situated, apply the ungloved hand so it wraps comfortably around the handle. From there, the thumb and index fingers of both hands should form two V-shapes, which should point somewhere around the right side of your chest or right shoulder.

As you can see, there are many things you can do to improve your golf game. From aligning the clubface correctly to choosing the right clubs and staying hydrated, there are many things you can work on. If you plan on visiting Breckenridge in the future, make a point to stop by Vida-Flo for an IV hydration therapy treatment!

How Much Water Should You Drink?

Before you head out on your Breckenridge hike, you may be wondering how much water you need to drink to stay properly hydrated. How much you need to drink will depend on a number of factors such as the activity you’re doing, the intensity level, the duration of physical activity, body type, weather, and even your age. A good general recommendation to stay hydrated is to drink about half a liter of water per hour of moderate hiking activity. If the temperature is hot, or you don’t see much shade on the trail, you may want to increase your water intake even more.

Hydration Tips For Your Hike

  • Keep water available at all times! Whether you plan on bringing a hydration reservoir or a CamelBak®, it’s important to ensure you have water accessible to you at all times. If you prefer to use a water bottle, make sure you stash it somewhere like in a pocket on the side of your backpack so you can reach it when you need. If you plan on running during your hike, consider investing in a hydration vest.
  • Drink often and frequently! Instead of guzzling down your water at infrequent times, try to take smaller sips of water throughout your hike.
  • Make a point to replace electrolytes during your trip. When you sweat, your body loses precious electrolytes and if you lose too many, your physical and mental performance can suffer. Try to focus on replacing sodium, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. One of the easiest ways to do this is through an electrolyte replacement sports drink. You can also purchase convenient powders and tablets to pre-mix in your water bottle before you hit the trail.
  • Drink more water at altitude. When you climb mountains in Breckenridge, you’ll notice that the higher the elevation, the harder it may be to breathe. When you partake in a physical activity at a higher altitude than normal, it can lead to dehydration much faster. Since you’re less likely to feel thirsty at higher elevations, it’s important to drink water frequently during your adventure.
  • Even if the weather is overcast and nippy, it’s important to drink water while you’re on your hike. Packing a hot drink can be a great way to keep yourself hydrated on a cold and chilly morning.
  • It’s always a good idea to pre hydrate before you hit the trails. A good rule of thumb is to drink about 17 to 20 fluid ounces about two hours before you head out. If you plan on taking a day hike that lasts more than 3 hours, consider hydrating a few days before.
