Do You Have Jet Lag? IV Therapy Might Be Your Answer

Do You Have Jet Lag? IV Therapy Might Be Your Answer

Sometimes, you just need a vacation. But the whole goal is to come home feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. If you’re dealing with jet lag upon your return, it can feel pretty frustrating. 

Unfortunately, jet lag is fairly common. If you’ve crossed three time zones or more, you might be dealing with the mildly infuriating combo of tiredness during the day and trouble drifting off at night.

Does that sound like you? If so, talk to our team at SmartClinic Urgent Care in West Covina and Santa Clarita, California. We offer intravenous (IV) therapy to help with jet lag, and we can tailor your treatment to your specific needs while also helping you get over those problematic sleep issues. 

Could IV therapy be the answer for you? If you’re ready to feel better after travel, pay us a visit.

When to try IV therapy for jet lag

In most cases, jet lag should resolve itself after a few nights’ sleep. But there are a couple of instances in which you might talk to us about getting an IV infusion. IV drip therapy is a great way to deliver hydration, nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream.

If it’s been a few days and you’re still suffering

If you’ve slept at home for a few nights and are still feeling discombobulated, it’s a sign that your body needs some help getting over your jet lag. At that point, IV therapy can deliver what you need. 

Intravenous drip therapy is a convenient way to help your system reset so you can get back to your life without that persistent fatigue. It aims to replenish nutrient deficiencies and boost your health and wellness.

If you need to hit the ground running

If you know that you’re coming home from a trip facing a packed calendar, you might want to schedule an appointment before you leave so you can get treatment shortly after your return. This way, you can actively combat jet lag so you’re in the best shape possible to tackle what’s ahead of you. 

What to expect with IV therapy

At SmartClinic Urgent Care, our team tailors your IV therapy to you. We might recommend B vitamins to boost your energy levels or an IV treatment with magnesium late in the day to help your body fall asleep more easily that night.

Talk with us about your jet lag symptoms so we can customize a solution for you. 

In all treatments, your IV provides your body with hydration. Because dehydration can make your jet lag symptoms worse, this alone can make a big difference. Hydration IV therapy helps you replenish fluids lost during travel, especially when you’ve spent hours in the dry air of an airplane.

Our IV therapy for jet lag can deliver what your body needs to bounce back faster after travel. If you want to feel rested after your vacation — even if you’ve crossed several time zones — keep this tool in your back pocket.

If you have questions about IV therapy or want to schedule your appointment, call us at either SmartClinic Urgent Care location. Alternatively, you can simply walk in when it’s convenient for you.
