The Secret to a Hangover Free Stampede

It’s almost that time of year again! The time of year where the city of Calgary parties for ten days straight with no mercy. These ten days are always a good time, but usually ends up feeling like one giant hangover. Considering most of us are still expected to show up at the office every morning, having some tricks up your sleeve to stave off those pounding headaches, nausea and post-party blues is a good idea.

Cowboy bootsWell cowboys and cowgirls, there is a quick and easy solution to your stampede woes. It’s a little therapy I like to call the ‘Stampede Hangover IV’. You may have heard of this therapy in places like Las Vegas, Chicago and New York, but little did you know that we offer this type of service right here at ProActive Health Group.

What is a ‘Stampede Hangover IV’?

A Stampede IV is a quick and effect way to cure your hangover and keep you in tip top condition so you can function headache and nausea free, all ten days. The IV consists of 500mL of saline to rehydrate you, plus antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

The liver is the most important organ we need to support when it comes to curing hangovers. Inability to rid our bodies of the toxic chemical acetylaldehyde (what alcohol is broken down to), can lead to DNA damage, oxidative stress and inflammation.

Basically, over indulging in alcohol makes us feel like crap, age faster, and sets us up chronic disease. We can counter a lot of this by administering high doses of vitamins and antioxidants straight into your bloodstream.

Drinking alcohol is fun, but it’s important to recognize the negative health implications it has, and do everything we can to prevent liver damage.

How does the ‘Stampede Hangover IV’ protect your liver?

Alcohol affects the hormones that are responsible for fluid balance – it causes us to urinate frequently, resulting in a fairly significant losses in body fluids. IV therapy quickly replenishes lost fluid.

The family of B-vitamins are needed as co-factors in the complex series of chemical reactions that occur in the liver during the breakdown of alcohol. The Stampede Hangover IV contains thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pyridoxine (B6), folate (B9) and cobalamin (B12), providing your liver with all the co-factors.

Side note: alcohol also blocks the absorption of thiamine (vitamin B1).

Electrolyte Replenishment
Along with dehydrating your body, alcohol also depletes our electrolytes. The Stampede Hangover IV provides an immediate, hefty dose of these crucial nutrients to get you re-energized in no time!

Don’t just survive this stampeded. Last all ten days, hangover free and feeling great with the ‘Stampeded Hangover IV’, now at ProActive Health Group. We will be offering extended IV hours during stampede, so give us a call and get yourself booked in!
