We’ve all been there. You get home from a relaxing vacation, or successful business trip expecting to feel calm, refreshed and ready to take on your daily life with renewed vigor, but instead, you feel grumpy, out of sorts and exhausted.
You feel jet lagged.
Jet lag happens when you cross multiple time zones and it is one of the most frustrating parts of travel. Jet lag usually occurs as a result of a long distance flight. The interruption in routine is enough to disrupt your levels of alertness, your appetite and your sleep patterns.
As if that’s not bad enough, jet lag has also been shown to disrupt our genes, throwing them off their normal rhythms. It’s also been shown to reduce neuron growth in the brain, decrease learning ability and memory capacity and also induce stress.
Not an ideal situation, but the good news is that there is hope for making a quicker recovery from these symptoms.
Jet Lag Revival Therapy
At The Hydration Room, visitors can partake in an anti-jet lag treatment in the form of a vitamin IV drip. Weary travellers can receive a dose of this rejuvenating intravenous liquid. The specific combination of vitamins, anti-inflammatories and of course water, helps people rehydrate and re-energize.
The IV infusions are used to replenish the amino acids that contribute to your brain’s neurotransmitters which significantly reduce the depression, the anxiety and fatigue that comes with traveling. The rapid absorption of vitamins through IV therapy enables the body to recover and re-adjust faster than oral capsules & beverages and thus, helps you return to your busy schedule.
Without a doubt, you will benefit from adding nutrients and vitamins to your body, so it can recover from the stress of air travel and sleep deprivation.
Why Does Jet Lag Occur In The First Place?
Your circadian rhythm, or internal clock, helps your body understand what time of day it is and helps regulate your eating and sleeping patterns, body temperature, blood pressure, metabolism and many other things. When you are experience jet lag and the time of day doesn’t match your internal clock, your system gets confused.
The misunderstanding between actual time and your body’s assessment of time is what causes the sluggish feeling. Other common symptoms of jet lag include fatigue, confusion and lack of awareness. These symptoms can sometimes last for days as you grapple with the mental and emotional adjustment to your surroundings.
