Whether it’s Saint Patrick’s Day, Mardi Gras, or maybe just a really fun weekend, we all tend to over-indulge in the alcohol department from time to time. Luckily, a new business in Wilmington, Essential IV, can help with that day after feeling.
Whether it’s Saint Patrick’s Day, Mardi Gras, or maybe just a really fun weekend, we all tend to over-indulge in the alcohol department from time to time. Luckily, a new business in Wilmington, Essential IV, can help with that day after feeling with a treatment they call the Hangover Relief.
The Hangover Relief is just one of the five treatments they offer at Essential IV, which recently opened in January.
The other treatments include athletic hydration, beauty boost, illness relief and anti-fatigue.
Wilmington Dermatology owner, Dr. Rosalyn George, MD, came up with the idea for Essential IV after visiting a similar place in another city. She was training for an ultra-marathon at the time and the IV treatment place she tried really helped her with recovery during her training.
“I felt so much better and I thought this was something that would really add value to our community,” George said.
George says the IV’s are a way to deliver vitamins, minerals and amino acids in a more effective way.
Specifically, the Hangover Relief treatment includes B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin C, and you can also add in things that will help with anti-nausea, things that help with aches and pains, and an anti-inflammatory.
Ed George, executive director at Wilmington Dermatology, says this hangover relief differs from the classic ways of trying to cure hangovers because the treatment enters your system immediately.
“Whether it’s Gatorade or trying to eat food afterword, that just takes so much longer,” George said. “It takes too long to go through your system if you take fluids orally so basically this is just a faster and more immediate way to recover.”
You can make an appointment to have the hangover relief treatment day of, but you have to book it online.
