Why I Always Get IV Therapy Before Traveling

Long plane rides are exhausting. This month I returned from a 2 week vacation in Portugal, a long needed trip since running a business is a stressful job. As the owner of Oasis IV Therapy, the highest rated mobile IV Therapy clinic in Tampa – I like to take my health seriously, which means I often do IV Therapy myself. A week ago I found out Dennis was an avid proponent of oxygen water for health and longevity. It turns out, IV Therapy shares a lot of the same benefits for health. And since Dennis is always hopping on planes every other day, I thought I’d share my reasoning for why I get IV Therapy before I travel and why you should too. Boosting Immunity The last thing you want when you travel is to get sick Back during Covid a few years ago, travel by airplanes was considered “risky” since you sat so close to others. And even though Covid isn’t a big risk anymore, the connection between long plane flights and getting sick never went away. Traveling exposes you to different environments and germs, which strains your immune system. Most of the time this is nothing, but sometimes it gets you sick. An IV therapy session before departure loads your body with essential vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, and zinc, which play big roles in boosting your immune response. We even have an immunity defense IV drip for this very thing. Getting IV Therapy can be especially important for folks that have any autoimmune issues. Staying safe when traveling means taking precautions most others won’t, but is worth it. While IV Therapy doesn’t guarantee you won’t catch something, it does make it way less likely. Raising Energy Levels Traveling is a huge energy vacuum. Maybe you have a 6 AM flight and have to wake up at 3 AM to prepare. Maybe you want to get up early to hike the mountains in the Azores like I did.  An energy boost IV, which includes a mix of B vitamins and other nutrients, helps in boosting my energy levels, making it easier to handle the stresses and strains of travel. This is popular with the athletes who schedule appointments with us, since it keeps their energy levels up when they need it most. You might be asking yourself, “How is this different from just getting a coffee?” The reason is how it’s administered and the vitamins included. By directly infusing a mix of B vitamins like B12, B6, and others into the bloodstream, it bypasses the digestive system, allowing for immediate and full absorption. B vitamins are vital for converting food into energy, and their enhanced delivery ensures that my body can efficiently produce energy. You also don’t crash out like you do when you’re drinking caffeine, meaning it’s much more sustainable. Keeps You Hydrated There’s a reason why airports charge $7 for a bottle of water. Air travel is notoriously dehydrating since the dry, recirculated cabin air depletes moisture from your body. Hydration IVs replenish fluid levels efficiently, ensuring I stay hydrated much better than trying to catch up on drinking water alone. This goes hand-in-hand with keeping energy levels up, since it’s hard to focus and move quickly if you’re thirsty. IV therapy enhances hydration by including electrolytes like sodium, potassium, and calcium in the solution, which are crucial for maintaining fluid balance in the body.  These electrolytes help regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, and balance blood acidity so you can stay active. The precise balance of electrolytes and fluids tailored in an IV therapy session helps ensure that my body functions at its peak. It also helps you transition better between climates, since Europe is much less humid than Tampa, this helps me reach a baseline quicker. Boosts Your Mood Between all the traveling, walking, and seeing new places, it’s easy to fall into a slump. How IV Therapy helped me was by keeping me hydrated and energized when everyone around me looked like they were ready to fold in the towel. For example, when I was in Lisbon seeing all the tourist sites I saw an American family arguing and shouting at each other. What were the chances they were dehydrated, tired, and lacked energy? Probably very high. Because I had an IV Therapy session before I traveled, I know for a fact I feel better than I would have if I didn’t. An unpleasant mood transfers to everything else you do and makes you less motivated to sight-see and make new friends and experiences. This has been a game changer for me. I know that my health, fitness, and mindset has gotten better since I started IV Therapy – and many of our clients say the same. The reason we got into this from the start was because we know how great it is and love helping out our customers and friends feel better. It’s why I started my career in the medical field as a nurse – we want to make people feel better and have more energy and health. So if you’re in the Tampa area and want IV Therapy for yourself, we’ll drive out to your location on your schedule and do it!
