The Morning After
The hangover doctor now makes house calls
A brutal hangover cured in 30 minutes? That’s right--now you can polish off that vino at Sant Ambroeus without worrying that a killer headache might prevent you from brunching the next day.
Enter The I.V. Doc.
The in-home IV hydration service developed by a licensed M.D. is designed to relieve a number of common ailments, including said hangovers as well as jet lag, food poisoning, muscle fatigue and general exhaustion.
Simply call or head to the website to request a variety of treatments. Then, a practicing nurse will come to your home within minutes. (They know better than to keep someone with a pounding head and unsettled stomach waiting.)
From there, you’ll be hooked up to a hanging IV bag filled with water, a little salt and sugars (a.k.a. electrolytes) and follow strict instructions to relax for a solid 30 minutes. For more intense revitalization, medications like Zofran (to quell nausea) or Pepcid (to alleviate heartburn) can be added to the drip.
What makes the treatments so potent is that an IV injection is absorbed instantly, whereas oral vitamins have an absorption rate of just 50 to 60 percent.
You’ll be feeling like your old self in no time.
