Dave Dickens Hangover IV Story
DAVE DICKENS WOKE UP one morning last October in Key West wishing he hadn't. "It feels like somebody is hitting me with a baseball bat in the head," recalls Dickens, a 60-year-old "play hard, live hard" kind of guy who had knocked back more than a few drinks the night before. So when he passed an IV clinic – advertised as a hangover cure – later that morning, he went in, remembering the time a friend's wife had gone to the emergency room to get an IV after drinking too much. The 45-minute treatment, which involved an intravenous infusion of vitamin-rich fluids, turned Dickens' vacation around. While that morning, he had sworn off alcohol forever, that night, he hit the town again. "It was unbelievable," says Dickens, who owns a car dealership in Chicago. "Right away, you start feeling it, but 45 minutes later, you feel almost 100 percent – no hangover." He's since been to IV clinics in New Orleans, San Francisco, South Carolina, Atlanta and visits one locally near-weekly – hungover or not. "It just makes me feel better – it's amazing," he says.
IV therapy has been used for decades in hospitals to treat a range of conditions, from dehydration to nutrient-absorption disorders, but it's increasingly offered at independent clinics and through house call-type services that pledge to help people feel better without clogging already-burdened emergency departments. And, while it may be most buzzed about as a hangover cure in party cities like Las Vegas, New Orleans and Los Angeles, IV therapy is also given to people with migraines, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as those who want a nutritional, athletic, energy, beauty or immunity boost.
"It works because if you look at vitamins and minerals, along with hormones and other chemicals in the body, these are the body’s building blocks; they’re our body’s natural pharmacy, and they’re used in numerous physiological pathways,” Dr. Jason Hartman
