Introducing: ThrIVe Migrane Drip

Eradicate your migraines and other debilitating headaches with this infusion.

Written by: Antasia Adamjee

When you get a migraine, whether it be mild or severe, life is put on hold due to excruciating pain, nausea, vomiting and/or sensitivity to light and sounds. If you are more susceptible to migraines, hydration is a big factor in recovery and prevention of future headaches.

To prevent migraines, we recommend receiving an IV therapy treatment to ensure the body is fully hydrated, as dehydration is a common migraine trigger. If you are already suffering a migraine, we’ve got the solution to get you back on track much quicker than you have experienced before.

Here at ThrIVe Drip Spa, our primary objective is to demonstrate the high efficacy of IV treatment for migraines. To begin the process, we will first have you speak with one of our nurses to ensure the Migraine Drip is most beneficial for your symptoms. The IV treatment begins with 1 Liter of NS/LR and can then be infused with the following: Magnesium, Toradol, Reglan, Benadryl and Zofran.

Magnesium is essential for relaxing the body and research has shown that when we have low magnesium in our diets, it is linked to migraines and headaches. Toradol is an NSAID and is used for the short-term treatment of moderate to severe pain in adults. It is a non narcotic. Reglan is an anti-nausea and anti-vomiting medication and has shown to be effective in the treatment of migraine headaches.

If necessary, we can add Benadryl at no cost into the treatment to help you sleep better; however, you will need to ensure a driver due to possible drowsiness. Lastly, Zofran is available as a substitute to Reglan, or even as an enhancement if necessary.

With just 30 minutes to an hour, we will be able to not only replenish your system to help your body perform at 100% efficiency, but help the severe symptoms brought on by migraines. To let us help you get back on track, check our availability to book your appointment online or contact us directly at the ThrIVe found closest to you.

9 Benefits of Hydration IV Therapy

By | IV Therapy | No Comments
Written by Chris Meisenhalder

 

You’ve probably been told many times that it’s important to stay hydrated. That used to mean drinking plenty of water and other fluids. But, now there’s a much better way to get your fluids—hydration IV therapy. Active, health-conscious people are discovering that the benefits of hydration IV therapy even outweigh the benefits of drinking lots of water. Here are nine of the key benefits hydration IV therapy delivers:

1. Hydration IV Therapy is More Efficient

Drinking fluids is actually not an efficient way to stave off dehydration. When you drink from a water bottle after a workout the tissues in your throat and along your digestive tract absorb most of the liquid. But, all of the tissues in your body need to be hydrated. That’s the reason you have to drink a lot of water to sufficiently hydrate yourself. Hydration IV therapy injects the fluids directly into your bloodstream so your body can deliver the fluids where you need them most. It’s a faster, more efficient way to hydrate your body.

2. You Need More Than Just Fluids

When your workouts are intense, you are losing more than just fluids. Drinking water isn’t enough. You also need to replenish your electrolytes and other lost nutrients. Drinking water doesn’t do that. Plus, drinking isn’t an efficient way to deliver the nutrients you need when you need them. Hydration IV therapy allows you not only get hydrated, but you also can refresh and replenish your body with the nutrients you need right away.

3. Hydration Therapy is Easier on Your Digestive System

Drinking a lot of fluids can be hard on your digestive system. Often you have to drink a higher volume of fluids than your body can absorb at one time. Your digestive system must work overtime to get rid of the fluids it cannot process. When your body starts to try and get rid of the excess fluids, it can lead to you flushing out many of the nutrients your body needs. If you are taking supplements with our fluids, those supplements can irritate your digestive tract. Hydration IV therapy allows your body to absorb nutrients and fluids without relying on the digestive system. It creates less waste than drinking fluids, and your body can retain more of the nutrients it needs.

4. Reduced Recovery Time

Hydration is critical to the recovery of your body. Athletes need hydration after a workout to help decrease muscle soreness and stiffness. If you are feeling tired after a long day at the office, you are actually dehydrated and need fluids right away to restore your energy. Fluids even help you recover from a hangover faster. Because it is so efficient, hydration IV therapy helps your body recover faster than drinking fluids does after you have been pushing yourself in a workout. The mixture of vitamins, nutrients, and fluids that you get with hydration IV therapy allows you to get back to feeling great in no time.

5. Hydration IV Therapy is Customized to Your Body

We are all different. Our bodies have different needs depending on our health, activity level, and our lifestyle. Drinking fluids doesn’t give your body the specific things it needs to perform at the highest levels. Hydration IV therapy is completely customized to your body. You get the perfect mix of fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients that you need to feel your best. You can have hydration IV therapy that focuses on:
– Athletic recovery
– Energy boosts
– Hangover recovery
– Skin care
– Immunity boosts

6. Immunity Boosts

Nobody likes to be sick. Hydration IV therapy can help you avoid many common illnesses by providing you with a quick and efficient dose of immunity-boosting compounds like Vitamin C and Vitamin B12. Having these vitamins put directly into your bloodstream through IV therapy makes them much more effective than taking them orally. IV therapy is designed to get these immunity boosters to the parts of your body where you need them most.

7. Flushes Toxins from Your System

Dehydration affects your body in many different ways. It can lead to problems with your digestive tract, like constipation. It can damage your liver and kidneys and allow toxins to build up in your system. Hydration IV therapy flushes your body with clean fluids and helps improve the functioning of your vital organs. IV therapy allows your liver and kidneys to do their jobs more efficiently. Your kidneys and liver work to filter out toxins in your body and then eliminate those toxins. Drinking fluids often is too slow to allow your organs to get rid of all of the toxins that have built up. IV therapy quickly delivers the fluids in the proper amounts to all of your vital organs.

8. Improves Cognitive Function

Your brain needs to be well hydrated to work effectively or at its best. By the time you experience thirst, you are already dehydrated. At the earliest signs of dehydration, your brain begins to slow down. You don’t process information as quickly, and your memory may become impaired. Fluids keep your brain functioning properly. When you are well-hydrated, you make better decisions. However, the brain is one of the last places to get hydrated when you are only drinking fluids. Hydration IV therapy improves your cognitive functions much faster than just drinking water.

9. Improved Skin, Joint, and Muscle Health

We are all between 55% and 60% water. When we are dehydrated, we immediately feel the effects. But, the signs of dehydration are more than just being thirsty. Dry skin, joint pain, and muscle aches are also all signs of inadequate hydration. However, getting enough liquids to these trouble areas is a real challenge if you are only drinking fluids. Hydration IV therapy will rapidly improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles. The powerful influx of fluids and nutrients flushes toxins from these areas and restores them to full health. Hydration IV therapy helps you look and feel healthy, so you can always be at your best.

High Dosage Ascorbic Acid Infusions

By | IV Therapy | No Comments
Written by Gene Lou, MD

 

Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid has been well studied since its push into the public eye by Dr Linus Pauling. It has many wonderful properties that help in immune function. Vitamin C is a free radical catcher and antioxidant, and therefore reduces the oxidative stress brought on by inflammatory reactions to infection. It is a key factor in the immune system’s ability to fight infection and is 80x more concentrated in the white blood cells than the rest of the body. It leads to increased production of interferon and reduces the ability of viral replication by interfering with viral DNA/RNA reproduction. In test tubes Vitamin C is able to neutralize all toxins from snake venom to heavy metals, pesticides, cyanide, alcohol, and carbon monoxide.

While the old adage was taking high doses of Vitamin C orally could aid in fighting illnesses, it has been shown that the body will not efficiently absorb over 500mg orally versus when administered intravenously. The excess is just excreted when taken orally. By contrast intravenous Vitamin C is nearly completely absorbed and has not been shown to lead to kidney stones.

High dosage intravenous Vitamin C has been shown to aid in improvement and recovery from illnesses such as Lyme disease, Epstein Barr Virus (mono), Herpes/Zoster/Chicken Pox, West Nile Virus, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, ALS, Alzheimers, Crohns Disease, Polio, Diphtheria, Measles, Mumps, Viral Pneumonia, and even Cancer.

Myers IV Therapy: Recovery Made Simple

By | IV HYDRATION THERAPY BLOG, IV Therapy | 3 Comments

Being busy is good, but hectic schedules can take a lot out of you. After awhile, travel, deadlines and late nights can take their toll. For those with non-stop schedules, IV therapy in Houston offers a quick and effective way to get a much needed boost. One of the most popular “drips” (or IV Infusion Therapy treatments) is the Myers IV therapy Drip.

The Myers Drip, also known as the Myers Cocktail, is a blend of vitamins and minerals first pioneered by Dr. John Myers, a Maryland physician who treated patients through IV infusion therapy. The blend includes B vitamins, magnesium, calcium and vitamin C, as well as electrolytes. It’s administered by IV, just like nutrients are in a clinical setting.

How is the Myers IV Therapy Drip Helpful?

This blend helps busy Houston professionals recover from the rigors of the city’s busy life. B vitamins help us better convert food to fuel and keep us running throughout the day. Everyone knows that calcium helps your bones, but it is also vital to your nervous system, keeping signals firing accurately.

Vitamin C keeps you looking younger by supporting lusher, skin and battling wrinkles. Magnesium is a powerful booster that can help you fight stress, fatigue, aches and pains and even feelings of depression. And, magnesium and vitamin C support your immune system. Together, these support your body’s functions better, increase your energy levels and give you a secret weapon that can get you back to 100% fast.

Benefits of Myers IV Therapy Drip

  • Fights stress
  • Energy and focus
  • Fights Fatigue
  • Improves Muscle growth and recovery
  • Improves Immunity

Why choose IV infusion therapy Instead of Other Options?

Vitamins come in pill form, but that can be the least effective way to consume them. Pills are not always fully analyzed for their vitamin and mineral content; these degrade with age, so you do not know what you are getting. Plus, it all has to go through your digestive system before you can get the benefits.

With IV therapy, you blast through barriers to get these vital nutrients right to where they do your body the most good. From the moment you start your IV infusion therapy, you start feeling the positive effects of the hydration and the electrolytes. The vitamins and minerals go directly into your blood stream, restoring you and helping you recover from everything you put your body through day after day. Therapy is quick and efficient and administered in our relaxing drip spa. You’ll be out and back to you day before you know it.

Ambitious and busy Houstonians work hard and work smart. The Myers IV is a tool to speed your way to recovery when you don’t have time to slow down. By taking a short time out and using this highly effective shortcut, you take a shortcut back to fighting shape.

How Does IV Infusion Work? What to Expect from a Drip Spa

By | IV HYDRATION THERAPY BLOG, IV Therapy | 3 Comments

As we get better at optimizing our health and beauty routines, we look to the medical field for help. By combining what doctors know with what health experts know, we improve our feeling of vitality and wellness.

The newest innovation in wellness and beauty goes under the skin to nourish and detoxify your body in a much more direct way than ever before. What should you expect when you visit a drip spa?

What Is IV Infusion Therapy?

drip-spa-iv-infusion-bag-dripWhen you consume vitamins, minerals and other nutrients orally, they need to be metabolized by your liver and pass through your digestive system on the way to being absorbed. The age and condition of produce can affect the vitamin level when you get your nutrients from food.

With pill supplements, quality and age, as well as your unique absorption rates, can keep you from getting the full benefit of treatment. Liquid extracts can be better, but there is still the problem of inefficient absorption through your digestive system.

IV therapy allows helpful substances to go directly into your blood stream. You take in virtually all of what is administered. It goes directly to where it can help the most.

IV therapy has been embraced by glitterati from around the world as a fast and effective way to improve weight loss, replenish depleted stores of nutrients and flush out damaging toxins.

Meeting the Staff & Going Over Health History

The first step when you arrive at our Houston drop spa for your infusion is to meet your practitioners and discuss your health history. The knowledgeable spa workers will ask a few questions about your health in general and also ensure that there is nothing in your medical history that would make an IV infusion inadvisable. The consultation takes just a few minutes and is totally confidential.

Picking Your Drip

There are a wide array of IV infusions available to combat a wide range of issues. Simple hydration drips replenish electrolytes and fluids to help your body flush toxins and support your best level of health.

What is IV Therapy? The Benefits and Breakdown.

By | IV HYDRATION THERAPY BLOG, IV Therapy | 2 Comments

It’s no surprise that what we take in affects our health, wellness, vitality and appearance. And, the more efficiently we can deliver these nutrients, the more dramatic and beneficial the effects. IV therapy was designed to ensure that every bit of a supplement is absorbed so that it can provide the health and wellness benefits we desire as quickly as possible.

It all started with the Myers Drip.

Dr. John Myers pioneered a cocktail of vitamins and minerals, administered intravenously, that provides relief from a number of ailments. The cocktail includes B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, calcium and other supplements that support health and wellness. The cocktail has largely been ignored by the mainstream medical establishment, remaining a secret of the elite.

Why IV?

When we consume foods or supplements in pill or liquid form, they need to travel through our digestive system before they can start being utilized by our bodies. It’s estimated that as much as 50% of the population has issues with absorption in their digestive systems, meaning that they never get the full benefits of the nutrients that they take in. Pills, in particular, are associated with low absorption rates.

Plus, with food and supplements, you are never entirely sure what you are getting. Vitamins and minerals in food break down during storage, cooking and metabolism. Pill and liquid supplement figures may not be up to date. With a specially formulated IV therapy drip, you know that you are getting every bit of the benefit with the most efficient administration method possible.

When you send vitamins, minerals and hydration directly into the blood stream, you bypass the digestive system altogether. There are no issues with substances being changed during metabolism or failing to be absorbed. Your body gets 100% of the benefit of these powerful drip recipes.

IV Therapy in Houston: Hydrate, Heal, or Enhance

By | IV HYDRATION THERAPY BLOG, IV Therapy | No Comments

We work hard, we play hard, and we’re always up for a party. But, our all-in approach to life can sometimes take a toll. That’s where IV infusion therapy comes in. While it’s likely you’ve never heard of it, it’s been a secret of celebrities and the powerful for a decade or more. While it was once only found in huge and “posh” cities like  LA and New York, we’re happy to welcome IV Therapy in Houston, and here’s why.

Have you ever looked at a hospital IV and thought “that sure would help my next hangover?” You were right. And, IV therapy can also help with a wide range of modern challenges, from rehydrating after travel to replenishing the skin to getting that extra performance push in a race or at the gym.

In IV therapy, hydration, nutrients and electrolytes are administered intravenously. This is the same technology that is used in medical settings. But, instead, you get to relax in a sumptuous spa while you super charge your health.

The Benefits of IV Therapy Over Other Options

When you eat, drink or take supplements in pills, everything needs to pass through your digestion system first. This means that you are stuck waiting on results until your body can absorb nutrients from your stomach or intestines. And, what you take in is metabolized by your body before it ever reaches your blood stream, so it changes in composition before it gets to the place where it works.

With IV therapy, the treatment goes directly to your bloodstream. No worrying about the age of produce or the purity of supplement pills. No waiting for your body to properly absorb what you are taking in. The vitamins, electrolytes, minerals and hydration get a direct route to your blood stream.

Adherents of IV therapy say that they can feel the effects as soon as the hydrating solution starts to enter their veins. And, you’ll feel a spring in your step from the time you leave our Houston spa till you head to bed that night and a more energetic you for days after.

What Kind of IV Therapy in Houston?

IV Infusion Houston: Beat Dehydration

By | IV HYDRATION THERAPY BLOG, IV Therapy | No Comments

Most people know about the dangers of serious dehydration. But, even mild dehydration can have some pretty serious negative effects. By the time you’ve lost even a little of your body’s natural hydration, it can negatively impact your feelings of well being, your mood and even your ability to think clearly. IV infusion therapy helps you re-hydrate fast and get back to feeling your best.

READ MORE: Effects of Dehydration – PsychCentral

Mild Dehydration Symptoms and Dangers

If you are down by even 1.5% of your body’s normal water volume, you are considered mildly dehydrated. Don’t count on feelings of thirst to alert you. Thirst does not begin to kick in until you are already down 1 to 2% of your body’s water content. If you are feeling thirsty, you are already dehydrated enough to be experiencing some negative effects.

In a recent study, scientists looked at the effects of mild dehydration. They had participants walk on a treadmill for long enough to induce mild dehydration. Then, they gave the participants tests that measured reasoning, memory, vigilance, concentration, learning and reaction time.

The people involved in the study said that they felt effects that included fatigue, tension, anxiety and headaches. Additionally, they did not score as well on the mental tasks as people who were adequately hydrated. The after-effects of dehydration persisted even after the participants were rehydrated; while they performed better on tasks, they still perceived the tests as being difficult to complete.

People who were suffering from dehydration had lower motivation to engage in even mild exercise. This lack of motivation can keep you out of the gym and mess with your general health and wellness. And, since exercise is associated with better decision-making, a more upbeat outlook and better energy, the combined effects of dehydration and skipping your workout add up to a double whammy.

The IV Infusion Houston Heat Requires

While dehydration is often associated with exercise, Houston’s heat can mean that you are sweating out hydration as quickly as you are taking it in. Over time, the effects can leave you feeling fatigued, emotionally wiped out, anxious and unwell.

Our Houston IV infusion treatments get you back on the path to proper hydration. As soon as IV infusion therapy starts, your body begins taking in replenishing fluids. There’s no wait while your digestive system slowly absorbs fluids. They go directly into your blood stream for delivery. Most people start feeling the beneficial effects right away and feel refreshed and restored for the rest of the day.

Operating at less than 100%? Dehydration could be the cause. Come to our Houston IV Infusion spa to get hydrated and refreshed.
