DRINK WATER

Of course, this is the best way to keep your hydration levels maintained. Try to drink around 64 ounces of water per day. If you find yourself struggling with staying motivated to sip water, try adding in some of your favorite fruits for flavor, such as strawberries or orange. Herbal teas, coconut water, and smoothies are also great ways to get that needed H20 during the day.

EAT YOUR FRUITS AND VEGGIES!

Did you know that fruits and vegetables are great alternative ways to hydrate yourself? Vegetables such as cucumbers, lettuce, eggplant, and spinach are over 50 percent water, and fruits like watermelon, strawberries, and oranges are also awesome sources of hydration.

HYDRATION TIPS FOR THE SUMMER

As the summer months approach, it’s even more important to stay hydrated. Spending time outside swimming, hiking, and enjoying the warmer temperatures is a great way to make memories with friends and family, but it’s important to also be careful of how much water you’re consuming. In this post, we’re going to discuss some essential ways to make sure that you’re properly hydrated so you can enjoy the warmer weather! If you’ve spent too much time outside and you’re feeling less than 100 percent, come to Vida-Flo Breckenridge for some IV hydration therapy. We’re proud to offer an incredible selection of IV therapies to help you to feel better almost instantly. Contact our helpful staff today for more information or to make an appointment at our Breckenridge location!

HOW MUCH WATER DO I REALLY NEED?

We’ve all heard differing amounts of how much water we need. Some studies say that you need to drink half of your body weight in H2O every day, and others say that you only need eight, 8-ounce glasses. While water is essential to survival, everyone needs a different amount. If you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, you might not need to drink as much. However, if you live in a hot or dry climate, you’ll definitely need more. It’s best to aim for 10 glasses of water per day, especially during the hotter months. If you’re active or spending extended time outdoors, you definitely need to consume more. Also, remember that drinking alcohol is dehydrating as well, and if you’re outside and sweating while sipping a cold beer, you can quickly become dehydrated before you realize it. Keep a bottle of water close by on warmer days, and if you struggle to remember to drink some H2O, set a timer on your cell phone as a reminder.

STEP ON THE SCALE

A great way to track your water intake is to weigh yourself every day. If you’ve just attended an intense workout class and you notice an almost instantaneous weight loss, chances are that you’re dehydrated. Quickly gulp down at least 20-24 ounces of water to replenish your reserves and keep your body working at its optimal level. Weigh yourself after a hike or day on the lake as well to ensure that you’re not too dehydrated.

DRINK BEFORE YOU’RE THIRSTY

If you’re feeling thirsty, chances are that you’re already dehydrated. Make sure that you’re sipping water throughout the day instead of suddenly feeling thirsty and gulping down several glasses at a time. If you continously drink water during your day, you won’t get thirsty or dehydrated.

WATCH OUT FOR HIDDEN SUGARS

Did you know that sugary beverages actually contribute to more than one-third of the daily sugar intake for an adult? You may think that your favorite lemonade is a great substitute for a glass of your H2O, but it probably is full of sugar. Not only does sugar make you have a hard crash one to two hours after you consume it, it can actually cause you to crave more sugar. Some fruit juices can pack up to 40 or 50 grams of sugar per serving! The next time you find yourself reaching for a sugary juice or drink, choose plain water instead.

DON’T BELIEVE THAT SPORTS DRINKS ARE A GOOD CHOICE

Sports drinks are a great way to replenish some electrolytes after spending time outside in the sun or working hard at the gym. However, it’s best to only consume one serving of a sports drink and then drink water afterwards. It’s easy to believe that, since it has electrolytes, vitamins, and other added ingredients geared towards individuals who are exerting a lot of energy and are sweating, it’s just as good of a hydration option as water. This is not true because sports drinks do contain a lot of sugar, and they aren’t really needed if you’re only going for a walk outside or spending the day on a boat.

Staying hydrated during the summer is essential and crucial to enjoying time in the sun. The next time that you’re in the sun and feeling thirsty, make sure that you have some H2O nearby. In case you overdo it and are needing an extra hydration boost, don’t hesitate to contact Vida-Flo Breckenridge. We’re proud to offer premium IV hydration treatments in a clean and relaxed environment. Call us today!

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!

FIVE REASONS IV HYDRATION THERAPY HELPS HANGOVERS

After a fun night out or a wild weekend, you may wake up on Monday feeling less than wonderful. A hangover can take a good day and turn it bad in just a few minutes, and after too many drinks and not enough food, you probably have a headache that has its own heartbeat. If you’re struggling to sip that sports drink or eat the first few bites of a cracker, you need to stop by Vida-Flo in Breckenridge. Our IV therapy system will have you feeling better and less exhausted in as little as 45 minutes. Our exceptional and helpful staff will help you as best as they can so you feel rejuvenated and refreshed and your hangover symptoms will be alleviated. If you’re feeling a little under the weather and are in need of hydration therapy, call Vida-Flo Breckenridge today! We’ll be happy to help you feel 100 percent after a crazy weekend so you can continue on with your life.

ALCOHOL DEHYDRATES YOU ON A HORMONAL LEVEL

Alcohol stops your body from producing anti-diuretic hormones, which allow you to absorb water from liquids you consume. Once your ADH levels drop after you’ve begun drinking, your body immediately begins trying to get rid of the extra liquid. This is why you dehydrate so quickly after a night of drinking and why you feel horrible upon waking. You need twice as much water to rehydrate after consuming alcohol, which is why IV hydration therapy helps you feel better almost instantly.

YOU CAN ADD VITAMINS AND MEDICINE TO YOUR THERAPY

Instead of trying to swallow multiple vitamins and headache medicine to help you feel better, you can add them to your IV hydration therapy. At Vida-Flo Breckenridge, we’re proud to offer multiple vitamin packs to treat a multitude of issues. If you need energy and a boost to wake you up, add some B vitamins to your IV bag. Vitamin C will help you beat an oncoming cold or illness, and we can even add popular anti-nausea or anti-heartburn medications as well. Call our helpful staff now to hear about all of the incredible add-ins we have to help you feel awesome.

IT’S WAY BETTER THAN DRINKING GALLONS OF WATER

The last thing many people want to do after they wake up is drink a gallon of water. Individuals still feel nauseated or sick and can’t stomach the idea of guzzling ounces of water at a time. While drinking water is important, it sometimes isn’t a viable option when you need relief fast. At Vida-Flo Breckenridge, we provide the equivalent of two and a half gallons of water in our IV treatment bags that can be absorbed by your body in as little as 45 minutes. Instead of trying to swallow gulps of water to bring relief to that pounding headache, relax in one of our comfy chairs and feel better with our FDA-approved IV treatment.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS WILL BE MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE

After a night of heavy drinking, the interior lining of your stomach and esophagus is damaged and healing, making it difficult to absorb any form of painkiller or anti-inflammatory drug. At Vida-Flo Breckenridge, we can put the exact same drugs that you would normally take orally into your IV therapy treatment and they’ll be absorbed into your bloodstream. Instead of less than 30 percent being absorbed by your GI tract, up to 100 percent of the painkiller or anti-inflammatory medicine will be absorbed by your body. You’ll feel relief from your symptoms faster without putting undue stress on your stomach and esophagus.

EVERYTHING IS LEGAL AND FDA APPROVED

You may find yourself nervous to receive this treatment if it’s not in a traditional hospital or medical setting, but you can rest assured that your health is of utmost importance to us. All of our treatments are safe and FDA approved so you can trust Vida-Flo Breckenridge. The hydration treatments are administered only by registered nurses, and we’re proud to have a clean and relaxed environment for our clients to enjoy during their treatment.

3 TIPS TO STAY HYDRATED DURING YOUR NASHVILLE HIKE

As the warmer weather approaches, you may be eager to lace up your walking shoes to hike on one of Nashville’s beautiful trails. Whether you plan on trekking the Red Trail at Percy Warner Park or want to take a leisurely stroll through Radnor Lake, it’s important to stay hydrated during any outdoor physical activity. At Vida-Flo in Nashville, we understand that sometimes water isn’t enough to get the job done, which is why we offer IV hydration therapy treatments to help restore the body with vitamins and energy agents. Before you head out into the Nashville heat to enjoy your next hike, consider the hydration tips below.

Plan Ahead To Avoid Dehydration

If you want to avoid dehydration during your hike, it’s critical to plan your water consumption ahead of time. Our hydration experts advise you to always bring water with you on a hike, even if you only plan on being outside for a small amount of time. Make sure to bring at least one to two quarts of water on your hike to ensure you stay hydrated throughout the day. If you have a CamelBak or another type of hydration system, plan on bringing it along during your trip. This way, you won’t have to juggle multiple water bottles while you enjoy the Nashville scenery!

Sip Water Throughout Your Hike

One of the best ways to ward off dehydration is to constantly sip fluids throughout your hike. Whether you plan on bringing a canteen full of water or a bottled sports drink, when you make a point to take small, frequent sips, it will help your body distribute water much better. A good rule of thumb is to try drinking at least one quart of water every 30 minutes that you’re on the trail. If you start to notice signs of dehydration, such as sticky or white, foamy saliva, stop by Vida-Flo after your hike for an IV hydration treatment. We offer a variety of hydration treatments to help restore your body with the replenishing fluids its needs to function at its best.

Eat Fruits & Vegetables To Keep Hydrated

Did you know that many fruits and vegetables are a great source of electrolytes and fluids? By eating fruits and veggies before or during your hike, you’re filling your body with much needed electrolytes that will help fuel your body for the workout ahead. Below are some popular foods to eat that have a high water content:

  • Cucumber – This particular veggie has an extremely high water content at ninety-five percent. Try throwing some cucumber slices in your salad, smoothie or soup to eat before your big hike.
  • Tomatoes – Tomatoes can have a water content of up to ninety-four percent and they are packed with Vitamin C and a plethora of healthy antioxidants.
  • Cauliflower – Packed with antioxidants, minerals and Vitamin C and Vitamin B, cauliflower contains a water content of up to ninety-two percent.

Vida-Flo is proud to be a leader of IV hydration treatments and dehydration remedies in Nashville.
