TIPS FOR HEALTHY HOLIDAY TRAVELS

It’s that time of year again: time to pack the car or book the plane tickets to visit friends and relatives for the holidays. While visiting with loved ones is enjoyable, the hustle, bustle, and travel of the holiday season can wear on our immune systems. In today’s post, we’ll review a few easy tips to ensure your holidays are happy and healthy, even if you plan on traveling.

Planning on traveling to the beautiful Buckhead area this holiday season? If so, Vida-Flo is here for you! If you’d like to avoid the unpleasant signs of dehydration and illness during your travels, stop by our Peachtree location to receive a personalized hydration therapy treatment designed to suit your specific needs. Book your appointment now!

Practice Good Hygiene

Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile, you’ll want to be sure that you practice good hygiene during your travels. Washing your hands before you sit down to enjoy a meal is one of the biggest ways to prevent catching an unfortunate cold or flu. There may be times when you are not near a sink, and carrying a small travel-sized hand sanitizer can help you stay germ-free while on the go.

Get Plenty of Rest

We all know that getting enough shut eye is essential to your overall health, but did you know that it is vital to your ability to fight off illness and disease? When your body is deprived of sleep, your immune system is not likely to function as efficiently as is does when you are well-rested. While it might seem beneficial to seek out red-eye flights in hopes of more affordable airfare, remember that you may be compromising your immune system unnecessarily.

Stay Hydrated

During the course of your travel, it is easy to lose track of time. When this happens, sometimes our eating and hydration schedule can fall by the wayside, and while it might be convenient to skip a meal in the interest of making good travel time, your immune function could suffer. Headaches, lethargy, and other signs of dehydration are not only unpleasant, but they can also put a damper on your holiday plans.

Pack Appropriately

Depending on your destination, the weather may be different from the climate that you are used to at home. Planning ahead and packing appropriate clothing is an easy way to make sure your body maintains a stable body temperature through your travels. If you’re too hot, you could sweat excessively, which can lead to dehydration. Likewise, there is some evidence that suggests that being exposed to cold temperatures could suppress your immune system.

HOW HYDRATION CAN MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW

Are you searching for that rested, awake look this winter season? Is your skin dull, lifeless, and dry? Hydration is one of the most important skin care practices that will help you to look awake and well-rested. Drinking enough water is the absolute best way to ensure that your skin looks its best. Vida-Flo Peachtree is America’s hydration expert and can give you some great hydration options so you’ll look perfect for that special night out, important event, or even just every day. Here are some quick and easy ways to keep your skin hydrated.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER (OBVIOUSLY)

Drinking plenty of water is the absolute best way to keep your skin supple and glowing. Most experts recommend eight to ten glasses per day. So you’re not running to refill your glass often, get a large water bottle or cup and keep it by your desk. You can also set an alarm on your phone or computer to remind you to take a few sips throughout the day. Water is extremely important to your overall health, energy levels, and skin clarity. Caffeinated teas, juices, and sodas need to be limited as well since they contain copious amounts of sugar and caffeine which will dehydrate your body and make you more tired. As you become more accustomed to drinking plenty of water throughout the day, you’ll notice that your skin will appear clearer and brighter.

EAT FRUITS AND VEGGIES

Did you know that fruits and vegetables contain lots of water? One apple can contain upwards of 85 percent of water along with fiber, nutrients, and vitamins. If you want to consume lots of fruits and veggies quickly and don’t have a lot of time, try blending them into a smoothie. Make sure to leave out any sugary juices or sweeteners so that you’re getting the most out of that yummy blend. A salad filled with leafy greens is another great choice for lunch as lettuces are full of water as well. Along with being full of water, eating more vegetables and fruits will make you feel healthier and give you energy, and the added benefits of the vitamins and nutrients will make your skin even more glowy.

CHICKEN, BEEF, OR VEGETABLE BROTH

The newest trend in health and hydration, bone broth is a treasure trove of protein, minerals, and anti-inflammatory properties. Along with the delicious goodness that chicken, vegetable, or beef broth offers, your body is able to easily digest and utilize the minerals and nutrition that broth has. It also is a supplemental way to hydrate, especially if you have been sick or ill and in need of some nutrition. You can use whatever broth you prefer as a base for soups or just sip it hot throughout the day. Along with the nutrients, vitamins, protein, and minerals, the hydration of broth will be incredibly beneficial to your skin health.

COCONUT WATER

If you’re in need of flavor but still want to hit your hydration goals, coconut water is an excellent option. Full of potassium, vitamin C, and electrolytes, this is a perfect choice if you’re fighting off a cold or have recently worked out and need more than plain H2O. Make sure that the coconut water you choose doesn’t have any added sugar or artificial flavorings. One of the best hydrators, coconut water will make your skin bright and luminous.

Vida-Flo Peachtree is a perfect destination for all of your hydration needs. As a Top Rated National® Hydration Expert, Vida-Flo Peachtree here in Atlanta is dedicated to helping you feel and look your best with IV hydration and vitamin therapy.

THE BENEFITS OF IV THERAPY

IV Therapy is a new and innovative way to take care of your body. It’s received a lot of attention for its health claims and the different treatments offered. You may be wondering what exactly IV therapy does for your body. IV treatment is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions and illnesses. Vida-Flo Peachtree is proud to offer IV therapy along with medication and vitamin treatments.

DEHYDRATION

IV treatment is a potent way to combat the effects of dehydration. At Vida-Flo Peachtree, we have several different vitamins and medications to help you to feel better in as little as 45 minutes. When you come in for an IV treatment to combat dehydration, your body will absorb the equivalent of two and a half gallons of water along with the medications and vitamins. Because of this, you’ll feel less exhausted and more cognizant, and you’ll leave Vida-Flo Peachtree refreshed and renewed.

HEADACHES

Headaches can be debilitating, and sometimes it seems like nothing will help to alleviate your pain and discomfort. Vida-Flo Peachtree has IV treatments specifically for customers who suffer from headaches. Along with the medication, your body also absorbs all of the fluid from the IV, so any dehydration you may have is relieved as well. Because we put the medication into the IV, your body absorbs 100 percent of the treatment and it gets into your bloodstream much more quickly than oral medication. You’ll find your headache easing quickly and that your body is responding to our medication and vitamins almost instantly.

HANGOVERS

After a wild weekend, you may wake up on Monday morning feeling sick and dehydrated. Instead of calling in sick, come to Vida-Flo Peachtree and we’ll send you on your way in as little as 45 minutes feeling rejuvenated. We have IV treatments especially for hangovers, and you’ll also gain the benefits of the hydration therapy as well. Instead of having to halt your life so you can recover from your hangover, you’ll be able to continue on with your day feeling great.

ILLNESSES

Feeling the effects of the flu or a sinus infection? Come to Vida-Flo Peachtree to gain some strength back. We offer treatments to help your body recover from sickness, and can help your body to flush out the toxins using the equivalent of two and half gallons of water in your IV therapy. We can also create a custom vitamin or medication mixture for your illness. IV therapy at Vida-Flo Peachtree will help you to get back on your feet quickly.

Vida-Flo Peachtree is dedicated to improving and empowering your body through our hydration therapy and medication and vitamin treatments. IV treatments can bring health and vitality to your body and give you a refreshed outlook. Our staff is all expertly trained, and we have certified nurses on site to administer your IV therapy.

We’re here to help you out and send you on your way refreshed, revitalized, and renewed.

TRAVEL HEALTHY THIS SUMMER!

If you have some fun summer plans, it’s important to take care of yourself so that you can enjoy your trip. How many times have you gotten on a plane feeling great and then gotten off feeling horrible? Unfortunately, airplanes are crawling with germs, which can make you sick. Before you leave on a jet plane, make an appointment at Vida-Flo in Peachtree for an IV hydration therapy treatment! We can customize your treatment to include plenty of vitamins and medications to help your body defend itself from illness. Call today!

AIRPLANE AIR ISN’T THE CULPRIT

Everyone says that airplane air is full of germs, but actually it’s extremely clean. The recirculated air that you breathe is filtered continuously through HEPA filtration systems, which removes about 99.7 percent of airborne particles.

HOW TO STAY HEALTHY ON A PLANE

If you have a long flight coming up, here are some tips for you to follow to help yourself stay healthy:

Sanitize: You don’t know who last was in your seat, so it’s important to sanitize everything around you. Hand sanitizer is also essential to keeping your hands clean and free of germs.

Drink Water: Staying hydrated will keep you healthier and help your body to flush out toxins. Make sure you’re drinking at least eight ounces of water every hour that you’re on the plane.

No Alcohol: Even though enjoying a cocktail is relaxing and enjoyable, alcohol is hard on your system, especially if you’re struggling with a cold. Switch out that Bloody Mary for plain tomato juice to boost your immune system.

If you come back from vacation feeling less than 100 percent, make a beeline to Vida-Flo in Peachtree. Our IV hydration therapy treatments will have you feeling awesome in no time! Call today for an appointment!

WHAT CAUSES A HANGOVER?

If you’re feeling rough after a night of drinking, you’re probably struggling with a hangover. Have you ever wondered what causes a hangover? In this blog, we’re going to discuss what actually happens when you wake up with a headache, nausea, and light sensitivity. Did you know that Vida-Flo Peachtree has an IV hydration treatment specifically for hangovers? The next time that you wake up feeling sick after party, contact our helpful team at Vida-Flo and let us help you feel better within 45 minutes so you can be on your way!

HANGOVER 101

From a medical perspective, a hangover is just intense dehydration. When you drink alcohol, it causes you to urinate more, which is why you wake up the next day with a headache, dry mouth, and dizziness. It also is processed by your body as a mild toxin, so it can incite an immune system response that may make you feel ill. Your stomach will also feel upset due to the irritants of alcohol. Some people may have heartburn, others may experience a loss of appetite, and still others may feel nauseated.

HOW TO HELP A HANGOVER

While there are multiple remedies for a hangover, what you need after a weekend party is to replace the fluid and electrolytes that you’ve lost. Drinking water is a great place to start, but one of the quickest ways to feel better is to schedule an IV hydration treatment appointment. The IV fluid can get into your body much faster, and you can feel the effects almost immediately. You also can add medications, vitamins, or electrolytes to your treatment to help your body get back on track even faster.

Contact Vida-Flo Peachtree for an IV hydration treatment today, and feel better fast after a night of partying! Call now!

FIVE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN B12

If you’re always searching for more energy, you’re probably already drinking coffee, tea, and energy drinks. Have you ever considered getting your energy from B vitamins? Vitamin B12 is one of the most important daily vitamins, and if you’re not getting enough of it, you may experience symptoms of fatigue, tiredness, and exhaustion. In this blog, we’ll talk about five benefits of vitamin B12. If you’re searching for a way to get more hydration and also your daily vitamins, check out Vida-Flo Breckenridge. Our amazing IV hydration therapy combines vitamins and medications with hydration for an incredibly revitalizing experience. Within 45 minutes, you can be on your way to better health and increased energy! For more information and to set up an appointment, call Vida-Flo in Breckenridge today!

Supports Daily Energy
Vitamin B12 is essential to your daily output of energy and is crucial to the chemical processes that create energy in your body. Your brain especially needs this vitamin to complete the processes of thinking and reasoning. If you don’t get enough, you could feel foggy and disoriented during the day. A supplement can help, but you need to try to get as much of your daily vitamins and minerals through food. Lean meat, dairy, and leafy greens have plenty of B vitamins and consuming them daily is important to your overall health and energy levels. If you’re consuming plenty of these foods and still struggling to get through your day, talk to your doctor about your health. You could be struggling with a vitamin B12 deficiency.

Helps With Mental Health
Did you know that vitamin B12 will help you to have a more positive outlook on life? This particular vitamin helps with your body’s stress responses and helps to regulate your nervous system. Many independent studies have shown that vitamin B12 actually helps to lessen and treat the symptoms of depression and their effect on the body and mind without the harmful and debilitating side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Because this vitamin helps the brain to function at its optimum level, it can help with various mood disorders. It has even been shown to prevent Alzheimer’s and work to improve a patient’s function who struggles with the disease.

Lowers the Risk of Birth Defects
Vitamin B12 works at the cellular level to help create DNA. During pregnancy, this vitamin is vital in the healthy development of an unborn baby. Scientific studies have proven that making sure a mother is getting the recommended daily dosage of vitamin B12 can reduce the risk of birth defects and disabilities. Of course, getting enough B12 also helps a mother to have plenty of energy and feel less tired during her pregnancy as well. Vitamin B12 can be consumed through foods or through a prenatal vitamin that offers your daily amount of the vitamin.

It Combats Anemia
Vitamin absorption is essential to fighting the effects of anemia. Anemia causes your body and blood to lack in iron, but it can also affect your vitamin absorption and cause you to experience much more than an iron deficiency. Since those who struggle with anemia often are tired and experience exhaustion, they need to take an extra dosage of vitamin B12 to boost their energy levels and also absorb more vitamins. If you have anemia, talk to your doctor about adding a vitamin B12 supplement to your daily vitamin regimen for some added natural energy and vitamin absorption.

Anti-Aging Properties
Certain independent studies have shown that vitamin B12 helps your body to fight off the effects of aging. It lowers the risks of developing Alzheimer’s and heart disease, two common health issues that affect elderly individuals. While vitamin B12 isn’t a cure-all, it’s been shown to improve health issues and the quality of life of those who struggle with low energy, diseases, and other illnesses. Again, talk to your doctor before you being a vitamin B12 regimen to ensure that you don’t have any pre-existing conditions that could be negatively affected by consuming the vitamin.

Vitamin B12 can give you extended energy, improve your overall health, and even lessen the affects of health issues and diseases. If you’re looking for more vitamin B12 in your life and also need more hydration, Vida-Flo Breckenridge can help you with both of those problems.

THINGS TO NOT DO BEFORE A RUN

When you’re planning for a run, it’s important to make sure that you’re properly prepared for the intense physical activity. In this blog, we’ll discuss some important things to not do before you hit the trail or treadmill. After a long run, you may need some serious hydration. If you’re guzzlling water but need more hydration, come to Vida-Flo Peachtree. We can get you in and out in as little as 45 minutes, and you’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after your IV hydration therapy. Call us now for an appointment!

EATING TOO MUCH

You may be worried you’ll run out of energy during your jog, but eating too much can make you feel sick and lethargic. It can also add stress to your body because it will be working to help you breathe and function during your run, but also have to work to digest the food you’ve just eaten. Try eating a light snack around half an hour before you step outside the door.

UNDERHYDRATING

Not drinking enough water can make you serious struggle early into your run, especially if it’s a hot day. Further, not drinking enough water after your run can lead to headaches, muscle cramps, and digestion issues.

If you’re a serious runner and in need of just as serious hydration, call Vida-Flo Peachtree an IV hydration therapy treatment. You’ll leave feeling awesome and ready to take on your next run. Call us now!

STAY HYDRATED IN THE SUMMER SUN WITH THESE EASY TIPS!

Summer will be here before you know it, and with the fun and exciting season comes the opportunity to experience dehydration. In this blog, we’ll discuss some tips for staying hydrated in hot temperatures. If you need a hydration boost fast, call Vida-Flo Peachtree today! Offering treatments in as little as 45 minutes, you can quickly get back to your fun outdoor activities feeling awesome. Call now!

DRINK H20

Spending time in the sun playing games, swimming, or hiking is fun until someone starts feeling light headed or ill. Make sure that everyone around you is drinking water regularly, especially if it’s a very hot day.

STAY OUT OF THE SUN

This sounds obvious, but during the hottest time of the day, it’s best to take it easy. Heat exhaustion can quickly sneak up on you and if you’re not properly hydrated, you can find yourself in a sticky situation before you know it.

AVOID ALCOHOL

Enjoying a few beers in the hot sun can make you feel sick quickly, especially if you’re already dehydrated. Make sure to drink plenty of water before you open your first beer and chase each drink with a bottle of water.

Make sure that your summer is full of fun instead of headaches, nausea, and other symptoms of dehydration. Call Vida-Flo Peachtree for a hydration therapy appointment today and feel amazing with our treatments!

THE WORST WAYS TO STAY HYDRATED

Staying hydrated is vital to your body and important to your overall health. While you may think that some beverages are contributing to your body’s hydration, certain drinks can actually deplete your body of the water it desperately needs. In this blog, we’ll discuss beverages that should only be consumed in moderation to ensure that your body is always operating at an optimal level. If you’re looking for a quick way to hydrate your body without consuming any liquids, call Vida-Flo Peachtree today!

SODAS

While these beverages are popular, the amount of sugar and carbonation in these drinks unfortunately do nothing for your body. While they’re consumed to quench thirst, they actually deplete your body of valuable water. Consuming one 12 ounce can of soda means you’re drinking 10-13 teaspoons of sugar. If you struggle to consume plain water, try adding a splash of lemon or lime juice or add sliced fruit like strawberries to add a zing of flavor.

ALCOHOL

Probably the worst drink you can consume if you need hydration, consuming an alcoholic beverage when you should be drinking water will literally dehydrate you. That icy cold beer you like to drink after a long, sweaty day spent doing yard work will do more harm than good unfortunately. If you’re craving a cocktail but also need to drink some H20, try drinking a large glass of water before your first mixed drink and then making sure you consume another large glass afterwards.

Hydration doesn’t always have to involve water. If you come to Vida-Flo Peachtree, you can leave in as little as 45 minutes feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after receiving our IV hydration treatment. Interested in feeling revived after a long weekend or recent illness? Call Vida-Flo Peachtree and make an appointment with our hydration experts today!
