Why IV Therapy Is a Good Idea After a Long Flight
Going on long flights can be exhausting and stressful for quite a number of reasons and can leave you feeling run down and generally sick afterwards. Find out how to overcome those post-travel symptoms here.

Air travel is exhausting for so many reasons. There’s the stress of security and check-ins, the hustle and bustle of the airport, not to mention being stuck in a small and stuffy space for hours on end. All of that can be overwhelming, especially if you’re flying across multiple time zones and you factor in jet lag. 

Jet lag and travel fatigue can leave you feeling run down and irritable and cause headaches and insomnia. In addition, air travel can dehydrate you, raise your stress levels, expose you to endless amounts of germs, and make you feel bloated.

Thankfully, there’s a way to overcome all those post-travel symptoms, and that is with IV therapyOur team at Atlas Health Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada, offers IV therapy to help you bounce back from a long flight and feel yourself again. Here’s a little bit more about how the process works and why you should choose it for travel recovery.

Understanding IV therapy

IV therapy is a way to get essential vitamins, nutrients, and fluids to your body intravenously. By putting these things directly into your veins, we’re able to bypass your gastric system, which gives your body what it needs far more quickly.

The process is an easy and painless one. To begin, our team inserts a catheter tube into your arm before we start your fluids. Once we start the IV, you can close your eyes, relax, and feel your body rejuvenating. The entire process takes about 30-45 minutes total.

Why you should choose IV therapy to recover from air travel

Almost all of the symptoms you experience after you have a long flight are things that IV therapy addresses. Air travel can cause dehydration, fatigue, a general feeling of illness, and stomach problems. IV therapy restores essential fluids to rehydrate you and relieve the intensity of many of your symptoms.

Our team caters your IV therapy treatment to your specific needs. For example, if you’re feeling run down, we can make sure that vitamin B12 is included to give you an energy boost. Or perhaps you’re struggling with an after-flight headache. In that case, we recommend adding magnesium into your IV therapy treatment to ease the nagging head pain.

Next steps
