IV hydration enriched with vitamins and minerals has been touted as a cure-all for brain fog, jet lag, the flu, and even hangovers. Now Vitalité Med Spa in Fredericksburg, Texas is offering the first hydration station for residents and visitors who overindulge in spirits.

FREDERICKSBURG, Texas, Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Vitalité Med Spa is the first walk-in IV hydration station

to open its doors in Fredericksburg, Texas. "We really have needed this type treatment in Fredericksburg for some time now," stated Lynne J, who works at one of the local wineries and sees at least a half dozen visitors every weekend who can benefit from the treatment.

Treatment centers offering IV hydration supplemented with B vitamins and minerals is a relatively new phenomenon appearing in larger cities where there is need for rapid improvement in hangover symptoms. Smaller towns and cities usually do not have this demand; however, Fredericksburg is home to over 100 wine tasting bars and a growing number of microbreweries which attracts over 1 million visitors every year.

At Vitalité Med Spa, medical staff takes the client's history to ensure there are no underlying medical issues. Then an IV is started and fluid, vitamins and minerals are replaced in about an hour. Medications targeting clients' specific symptoms such as headache, nausea, body aches are also administered. The staff at Vitalité also educates clientčle about the dangers of excessive drinking, how to avoid hangover in the future and how to recognize signs of addiction.

While the processes which lead to hangovers are still poorly understood, the symptoms include headache, dehydration, reduced cognitive function, drowsiness, dizziness, fatigue, nausea and overall body achiness. These symptoms occur usually after a bout of heavy drinking but after the blood alcohol level drops to zero, usually the next day. However, blood levels of other noxious chemicals and metabolites of alcohol are just peaking when hangover symptoms begin.

Studies have shown that red wines and dark whiskeys are more likely than white wines or vodka to cause hangover, leading many to propose that the methanol, coloring and flavorings in the darker spirits are responsible for hangover symptoms, rather than the alcohol itself.

Hospital emergency rooms have administered such treatments for hangovers for many years at a much higher price tag. Vitalité Med Spa is able to cut the cost of such treatment by about 90 percent.

"This treatment was just what I needed after a little overindulgence at my bachelorette party. I was having second thoughts about attending my own wedding the next day! But an hour after the IV hydration, I felt like a new person and the wedding went off without a hitch," notes JoEllyn. "In addition, I was able to schedule a Botox treatment at Vitalité Med Spa, which also offers a full line of cosmetic services including laser hair removal and the Vivace Experience.
