With winter in full force, its ice and snow keeping you indoors and giving you the blues, a desert destination may sound like just the ticket to warm you up and boost your mood.
Whether your destination is Las Vegas, with its hot dry days and inebriated nights, sunbathing on the sizzling white sand beaches of Mexico, or a relaxing spa retreat in the Arizona desert, you run the risk of dehydration and its life-threatening effects.
Why Dehydration is Deadly
Because your body and its vital organs are made up of mostly water, loss of fluids through sweat, urine, breathing, vomiting and diarrhea can cause serious problems including muscle cramps, heat exhaustion, impaired cognitive function, heart and organ failure, and heat stroke.
Blood, which is normally 80% water, can become sludgy and unable to circulate oxygen and nutrients efficiently. When you lose fluids, you also use electrolytes, vital elements that keep your heart beating and support nervous function. Your kidneys need water to work efficiently at filtering out toxins from your system.
Causes of Vacation Dehydration Include:
- Environmental Dry Heat: When you expose your body to intense dry heat that it has not acclimated to, it can cause rapid dehydration.
- Adverse Effects of Alcohol: For many, drinking alcohol goes hand-in-hand with vacationing. Those fruity iced beverages, while initially refreshing, can lead to dehydration because alcohol suppresses your body’s antidiuretic hormone, causing you to urinate more.
- Montezuma’s Revenge: Vomiting and diarrhea brought on by a stomach bug or food poisoning can lead to severe hydration.
IV Therapy to Refresh, Re-energize and Rehydrate
One of the fastest and most effective ways to rehydrate is IV therapy. In addition to saline water, an IV rehydration cocktail includes micronutrients to replace electrolytes and boost your immune system, along with medication to treat nausea and headache.
Most IV cocktails contain a megadose of Vitamin B12, giving you an energy boost so you can recover and enjoy your vaycay to the max.
