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!

Tips for Fast Hangover Relief and Recovery!

Live fast, but honestly, there’s no reason to die young!

Nights on the town with friends make the best memories, but the feeling of exhaustion, dehydration, and fatigue will have you searching for a fast hangover cure the next day. Here are a few tips to help you recover faster and get you back to feeling like yourself again.

Understanding the cause

When you consume alcohol, your body’s natural response is to produce more urine to release the foreign substance from your body. As you urinate more often, you release some of the alcohol from your system, but you also lose vital hydration. Since most of us are not adequately hydrated to begin, our hangovers can feel even more intense – yep, that’s right. Signs of dehydration include:

Increased thirst.
Dry mouth.
Exhaustion
Headache.
Dizziness.

The symptoms of dehydration are identical to the symptoms of a hangover, so when you are dehydrated and hungover, it is natural for you to feel bad, like really bad.

Take the right steps to feel better faster

So how can you feel better sooner? Your friends might tell you to drink as many bottles of water as you can, but unfortunately this won’t replenish the vital fluids your body needs quickly enough. There’s a better option to get hydrated faster and it’s called hydration therapy!

Hydration therapy is a revolutionary treatment developed by VidaFlo to quickly and effectively rehydrate your body. The treatment is used by professional athletes, as well as everyday people, to provide overall health and wellness, boost energy, prevent illnesses, and relieve hangovers.

VidaFlo’s hydration therapy is applied through an IV and uses 1000ML bags that consist of normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride), which replaces vital salt lost after a night of drinking. It also contains electrolytes of potassium, calcium, and lactate. These electrolytes can be difficult for the body to absorb through simply drinking water.

Hydration therapy only takes about 45 minutes and you can expect to feel 100% better after your first treatment!

HOW TO TREAT DEHYDRATION

Dehydration occurs when the body isn’t receiving enough water to compensate for its daily output. Severe dehydration, while rare, can be life threatening, but even mild dehydration can have adverse effects on mood and energy levels. It’s important to notice and treat dehydration as early as possible. At Vida-Flo Breckenridge, treating dehydration is our specialty and we’re passionate about taking care of your body from the inside out.

SYMPTOMS OF DEHYDRATION

Dehydration symptoms usually include headache, lethargy, muscle cramps, dry mouth, weakness, dizziness, and heart palpitations (the feeling that your heart is jumping or pounding). You can also experience cravings for sweets, dry skin, fever and chills, and irritability and confusion. Since the body is made up of two-thirds water, dehydration should be treated with aggression and quick response. Stopping physical exertion is also extremely important because continuing to tax your body can continue the spiral towards further dehydration.

TREATMENT OF DEHYDRATION

The first action that you should take is to drink water. Sports drinks with added electrolytes, clear fruit juices, electrolyte drinks such as Pedialyte™, and coconut water are also great liquids to consume to help alleviate dehydration. You can also eat foods with high water content such as celery, apples, iceberg lettuce, cucumbers, and watermelon. Here at Vida-Flo, our IV treatments rehydrate the body rapidly with the equivalent of two and a half liters of water in a short amount of time. If you’re suffering from dehydration, you can be sure that you’ll leave Vida-Flo feeling better from the inside out.

PREVENTING DEHYDRATION

As the saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, and this is definitely the case with dehydration. It’s imperative to drink one to three liters of water per day to ensure that your body is properly hydrated. Make sure to rehydrate before and after physical activity, and also monitor your water intake in hot and dry weather. If you’re still struggling to consume the adequate amount of water, come to Vida-Flo Breckenridge. We know you’re busy and sometimes need a quick solution to alleviate dehydration symptoms.

In as little as 45 minutes, Vida-Flo Breckenridge will refresh your body with a large amount of fluids, vitamins, and even medications to help you to get back to 100 percent in no time. We have a clean, calm, and relaxing facility and an excellent staff dedicated to you and your overall health. Come see us today!

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.
