While 97% of Americans have at least one risk factor for fatigue, nearly 43% report that they’re too tired to function at work. Not only can this increase your risk of making errors, but it can make the days seem long and difficult.
The key to overcoming those sluggish feelings is to determine what’s causing them in the first place. Staying up late and waking up early is a big contributor to fatigue. Travel, jet lag, chronic pain, and stress can also play a role and contribute to fuzzy thinking 一 so can dehydration.
Dehydration occurs when you don’t get enough fluids and electrolytes, which can cause thirst, dizziness, fatigue, and brain fog.
If you’re dehydrated, you need to replace the lost fluids as well as the lost electrolytes and other nutrients. That’s where IV therapy drips can help. Linda Y. Dula, DO and our team here at Invigorate Asheville offer a variety of IV therapy drips that replenish all of the nutrients you need to rehydrate you, restore lost electrolytes, and boost your energy. As a result, you can overcome dehydration and find a renewed sense of energy again.
Feeling sluggish? Try these three IV therapy drips.
Simply InVigorate contains one liter of fluid designed to rehydrate you and address generalized fatigue. Replenishing lost fluids can go a long way in helping with fatigue and weakness.
You might choose this IV therapy drip if your fatigue is accompanied by headaches and/or nausea. Dr. Dula adds the appropriate medication 一Toradol® for pain, Zofran® for nausea, or Pepcid® for heartburn 一 to further customize your treatment.
Often regarded as the original IV therapy drip, the Myer's cocktail is one of the most commonly administered IV blends since its creation by Dr. John Myers. This blend is particularly useful for combating sluggishness because it contains high doses of vitamin B 一 a group of vitamins well-known for its energy-boosting effects. In addition to vitamin B, Myer's cocktail also contains vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium mixed with sterile saline water. Together, these nutrients can give you energy and sharpen your mental clarity. Goodbye, brain fog!
Additionally, there are numerous studies that indicate that Myer's cocktail IV therapy may also:
Each infusion delivers 100 milliliters (ml) of fluid, but if you have severe dehydration, we can add an additional 1 liter of normal saline.
Restore is an IV therapy drip that focuses on total body rehydration. Thanks to B vitamins and one liter of normal saline, this drip increases your energy, supports your metabolism, and boosts mental clarity. If needed, we can also add an anti-inflammatory, nausea medicine, or an antacid.
You might choose the Restore therapy drip if you have fatigue related to travel, jet lag, and severe dehydration.
Not sure if you need Myer’s cocktail or Restore? The Restore IV drip features the same ingredients as the Myer's cocktail with the addition of selenium and zinc 一 both of which are good for inflammation and detoxing. This makes the Restore IV therapy a cost-effective option since it provides all of these nutrients plus the one liter of normal saline without having to add individual add-ons (the selenium and zinc) to the Myer’s cocktail.
These three IV therapy drips are just a small sample of what we offer. We provide other IV infusions, including drips for increasing athletic performance (InVigorate Performance), supporting weight loss (Reduce), and promoting healthy skin (Glow Plus).
Regardless of which IV treatment you choose, the process is the same:
