Beauty Skin Hydration Tips from Vida-Flo Nashville

We all care about our skin and our health.

We definitely want that glow that inspires compliments. The most important piece of beautiful skin and good health is hydration; making sure that we are drinking enough fluids on a daily basis is tantamount for all of us. Aside from hydration, Vida-Flo recommends knowing exactly what type of skin you have and how to care for it properly. Oily skin will have different needs from dry skin and etc. We can only meet these specific needs when we know what they are. For example, if you have dry skin, no matter how many times you visit Vida-Flo’s IV lounge, your skin will never be able to maintain its moisture. Sometimes, our skin needs a little bit of extra tender, love, and care. Dry skin is basically inflammation, oils like ylang-ylang and lavender can help calm the skin by calming the inflammation. Herbal teas and masks made of these oils and also herbs like chamomile or even oatmeal can also be a nice addition to our beauty and skin care routines. Whether we have combination, oily, or dry skin, we want to avoid any products that utilize harsh chemicals and fragrances or alcohol. For oilier skin, lighter moisturizing oils like avocado and almond oil will help the skin maintain moisture without clogging the pores with more oil. Diet is also an important part of having good health and beautiful skin. Water rich fruits and vegetables like pineapples and cucumbers or celery can add to the hydration that we are seeking.

Skin eruptions and mutinies can cause oily skin to have breakouts and pimples while those with drier skin can suffer from patches and discoloration. Dehydration and lack of appropriate skin resources can lead to terrible skin woes. Hydration therapy is not only necessary for our bodies, it is also amazing for our skin. Hydration can be even more essential for those of us that reside in colder climates. Vida-Flo’s IV lounge is a great place to go to get hydration therapy IV treatments to supplement our daily health and beauty regiments.

Zinc for Wound Healing and Muscle Recovery

Did you say “sink” or “zinc”?  

Zinc is one of those strange, almost exotic sounding vitamins that we know we should be getting more of, but we may not really know why. Zinc is good for everything from protecting and strengthening our immune systems to treat the common cold to controlling hormone levels in our bodies and even possessing antioxidants to assist with the destruction of free radicals.  Our bodies are sensitive, and many things can deplete our zinc levels. Zinc is even been considered to be a hangover cure pill because alcohol diminishes our bodies zinc content. The ultra-gain “Heal” provides the necessary boost of the essential vitamin zinc in order to allow for optimized muscle recovery and wound healing.

Zinc is found in foods, but it isn’t something that we are monitoring or keeping track of in the same way that we’re used to ensuring that we have the proper amounts of vitamins A, B, C, or even D, in our diets.  A deficiency in the vitamin Zinc, however, can cause stagnation throughout the process of muscle healing and tissue repair. Zinc’s role in our system is to help metabolize protein so that our bodies can use it during muscle repair and wound recovery.  Zinc levels are also a crucial determining factor in our wounds being able to heal properly and the actual amount of time that it takes our bodies to complete this process. Research has even suggested that people who have lower zinc levels have a more difficult time healing especially those experiencing chronic wounds like ulcers.  Zinc is even used to treat minor skin irritations like hives, rashes, and shallow or topical or skin level wounds.

Vida-Flo understands the importance of zinc and is an expert regarding IV vitamin therapy.  Vida-Flo is committed to ensuring that we can maintain or boost our levels appropriately and with professional help.  For most of us, we have no idea what an appropriate level of zinc is or how to get our bodies there. Of course, we can take supplements or increase our intake of certain zinc-rich foods but there is no replacement for proper dosages from someone who knows exactly what to do.  Our health is extremely important to us and it’s essential for us not to neglect more obscure vitamins and minerals. And don’t forget that zinc is considered an amazing hangover cure pill and home remedy that nature has to offer.

Top 5 Myths about Altitude Sickness

If you ever have suffered from altitude sickness, then you know it’s an incredibly uncomfortable feeling.

Your lungs feel strained, and your energy is completely drained. You are left to search the internet for “how to treat altitude sickness.” Here are a few myths about altitude sickness that can help you as you travel to great heights.

  1. Fit people don’t suffer.

Athletes travel to high altitudes to train for endurance, but this doesn’t stop them from experiencing the effects. Everyone, regardless of their fitness level, is susceptible to altitude sickness. The fittest people can suffer, or the least fit can suffer. Your level of physical fitness is not a critical factor.

 

  1. Drinking water will help.

Staying hydrated is essential at high altitudes, but in most cases drinking water will only help to alleviate the symptoms such as dry mouth. To help your lungs perform better in high altitudes, your entire body needs hydration with minerals and electrolytes. At Vida-Flo, we know how to treat altitude sickness before it ever begins.

 

  1. Avoid coffee.

Drinking caffeine will not increase the likelihood of sickness. In fact, caffeine stimulates your brain, kidneys, and breathing, all of which are helpful at high altitudes.

 

  1. Take over the counter medication (OTC).

Taking over the counter medication will not mask the symptoms of altitude sickness. It works on the same pathway that your own body uses to help you acclimatize. It speeds up your natural process of acclimatization, and if you stop taking it, you will not have rebound symptoms. If you want to know how to treat altitude sickness, you should always talk to your doctor before taking OTC medications.

 

  1. Kids suffer more.

Several studies have shown that children have similar rates of altitude sickness as adults. No evidence exists that children are more susceptible to the effects of high altitudes. The primary challenge with children is that they can’t communicate their headaches and other symptoms, so it is vital that you observe your young ones.

  1. Hydrate Before

Hydrating before a long weekend of enjoying your favorite music can help you recover from a hangover fast mid-festival.

IV Hydration therapy is the best way to get hydrated and Vida-Flo is the premier choice for your hydration needs. The process takes only 45 minutes. The natural formula or electrolytes, vitamins and minerals will have you feeling your best, so you can recover from dehydration faster and enjoy a weekend packed with festivities.

  1. Moderation

Music festival season is a time to remember. Great friends, great food, and your favorite artists. Moderation is key for feeling your best during the festivities. Enjoy the ambiance, but set limitations for alcohol and festival foods, especially with those items that aren’t a part of your normal diet. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you happen to overindulge, because Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy is a great remedy for hangovers.

  1. B12

Vitamin B12, is a family of vitamins each designed to support a healthy lifestyle. The human body is not capable of producing Vitamin B12, so it must be supplemented through vitamins or food. There are many benefits of B12, but the most well known is energy. The vitamin B12 shot is a great source of natural energy that will help you stay lit and party all night long! Stop by your local Vida-Flo and show us your festival tickets and get a B12 add-on with any treatment you choose.

 

 

Vida-Flo Speaks: The Benefits of Glutathione

The benefits of glutathione may be the best thing you’ve never heard of!

Here at Vida-Flo, we recently introduced a new standard in hydration therapy which uses glutathione, an antioxidant naturally present in fruits and vegetables. Our glutathione package aids in preventing damage to important skin cells caused by free radicals and this service has several other benefits as well. Read on to learn more about the various benefits of glutathione hydration therapy.

Reduces Dark Marks and Evens Skin Tones

Glutathione is a natural skin brightener and is used commonly in cosmetics to lighten and reduce the appearance of dark marks and acne scars. The resulting effect is a bright and even skin tone for all shades of skin.

If you have tried dozens of products that promise to rid your skin of blemishes, scars, and dark marks only to be disappointed with the results, you will benefit greatly from introducing Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy with glutathione to your system. While there are several ways to use glutathione, we have found that when combined with hydration therapy, results are seen much faster, so you can enjoy healthy radiant skin sooner.

Anti- Aging Benefits

Our bodies need a balanced level of antioxidants to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance. When skin is exposed to UV rays, free radicals are created which causes oxidative stress, degradation of collagen, and an over-production of melanin (responsible for your tan). Over time, exposure to the sun rays can result in premature aging of the skin.

At Vida-Flo, we use glutathione combined with hydration therapy to combat the free radicals that cause oxidative stress and reverse the damage caused by harmful sun rays. This means your skin will look and feel softer and younger.

Reduced Inflammation and Redness

Inflammation is the body’s way of initiating healing responses. However, inflammation that is unregulated can result in excessive free radical activity and tissue destruction. Many of us experience inflammation so regularly that we don’t even recognize it as such, but most discomfort, itching, or redness in our skin is an indicator of inflammation.

Kick the discomfort by fighting inflammation from within! Our hydration therapy with glutathione will help your body to regulate its healing processes and reduce the itchy redness associated with inflammation.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy with glutathione has these benefits and many more. Get started today with your customized hydration treatment at your local Vida-Flo location.

The Overall Benefits of Hydration Therapy

Hydration therapy is a revolutionary treatment developed by Vida-Flo to quickly and effectively rehydrate your body! 

This treatment is used by professional athletes and everyday people as a dehydration treatment. Here are a few facts and benefits of Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy.

Beauty and Wellness

Water is the foundation of beauty and wellness. Most people aren’t getting enough water to keep them looking and feeling great. Even those who drink the recommended amount of water can still experience the effects of dehydration, which includes dry mouth, exhaustion, and headaches. This is because not all water is created equally and after undergoing processing, most bottled water has become acidic. Human bodies need to maintain a balanced pH level to feel healthy which means alkalized hydration is key.

Vida-Flo is a leading dehydration clinic that specializes in hydration therapy to provide alkalized hydration that is packed full of essential electrolytes to truly replenish the body. The effects of adequate hydration include glowing and even-toned skin, reduced blemishes and healthy hair. It’s a fact that looking good feels good, so wellness begins from within!

Energy and Revitalization 

Your energy levels deplete when you are dehydrated, which means you can’t perform your best in your favorite physical activities. In addition, when you sweat, you lose essential salt that your body needs to function at full capacity while active. If you are exercising while dehydrated, you are more likely to sustain injuries, you will have a harder time losing fat, and your body will feel sore much longer.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy is used by top athletes and sports professionals, because it is an effective way to prevent physical fatigue and recover faster. Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy is applied through an IV and uses 1000ML bags that consists of normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride), which replaces vital salt lost in exercise. The bags also contain electrolytes of potassium, calcium and lactate, which are essential to fat loss and speedy muscle recovery. Exercise is a great way to boost your energy and with proper hydration your body will perform at its highest capacity.

Illness Recovery

The occasional cold is a normal part of life. Germs easily travel from surfaces into our systems and cause us to experience congestion, stuffy noses, sore throats, and variety of other symptoms. Having a cold is normal, but feeling sick for more than 3 days isn’t. Most common cold related hospital visits are treated simply with hydration therapy.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy can beat the common cold. Save yourself a trip to the medic and get a hydration boost that will help your immune system fight the common cold and prevent future illnesses.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy has these benefits and many more. Get started today with your customized hydration treatment at your local Vida-Flo!

Tips for Fast Hangover Relief and Recovery!

Live fast, but honestly, there’s no reason to die young!

Nights on the town with friends make the best memories, but the feeling of exhaustion, dehydration, and fatigue will have you searching for a fast hangover cure the next day. Here are a few tips to help you recover faster and get you back to feeling like yourself again.

Understanding the cause

When you consume alcohol, your body’s natural response is to produce more urine to release the foreign substance from your body. As you urinate more often, you release some of the alcohol from your system, but you also lose vital hydration. Since most of us are not adequately hydrated to begin, our hangovers can feel even more intense – yep, that’s right. Signs of dehydration include:

Increased thirst.
Dry mouth.
Exhaustion
Headache.
Dizziness.

The symptoms of dehydration are identical to the symptoms of a hangover, so when you are dehydrated and hungover, it is natural for you to feel bad, like really bad.

Take the right steps to feel better faster

So how can you feel better sooner? Your friends might tell you to drink as many bottles of water as you can, but unfortunately this won’t replenish the vital fluids your body needs quickly enough. There’s a better option to get hydrated faster and it’s called hydration therapy!

Hydration therapy is a revolutionary treatment developed by VidaFlo to quickly and effectively rehydrate your body. The treatment is used by professional athletes, as well as everyday people, to provide overall health and wellness, boost energy, prevent illnesses, and relieve hangovers.

VidaFlo’s hydration therapy is applied through an IV and uses 1000ML bags that consist of normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride), which replaces vital salt lost after a night of drinking. It also contains electrolytes of potassium, calcium, and lactate. These electrolytes can be difficult for the body to absorb through simply drinking water.

Hydration therapy only takes about 45 minutes and you can expect to feel 100% better after your first treatment!

If you are planning a night out on the town, beat the hangover in advance by scheduling your hydration therapy session today. We also offer same day appointments at many of our locations, especially for the times that you need fast hangover relief. Click here to find a location nearest to you.

TIPS FOR HEALTHY HOLIDAY TRAVELS

It’s that time of year again: time to pack the car or book the plane tickets to visit friends and relatives for the holidays. While visiting with loved ones is enjoyable, the hustle, bustle, and travel of the holiday season can wear on our immune systems. In today’s post, we’ll review a few easy tips to ensure your holidays are happy and healthy, even if you plan on traveling.

Planning on traveling to the beautiful Nashville area this holiday season? If so, Vida-Flo is here for you! If you’d like to avoid the unpleasant signs of dehydration and illness during your travels, stop by our Nashville location to receive a personalized hydration therapy treatment designed to suit your specific needs. Book your appointment now!

Practice Good Hygiene

Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile, you’ll want to be sure that you practice good hygiene during your travels. Washing your hands before you sit down to enjoy a meal is one of the biggest ways to prevent catching an unfortunate cold or flu. There may be times when you are not near a sink, and carrying a small travel-sized hand sanitizer can help you stay germ-free while on the go.

Get Plenty of Rest

We all know that getting enough shut eye is essential to your overall health, but did you know that it is vital to your ability to fight off illness and disease? When your body is deprived of sleep, your immune system is not likely to function as efficiently as is does when you are well-rested. While it might seem beneficial to seek out red-eye flights in hopes of more affordable airfare, remember that you may be compromising your immune system unnecessarily.

Stay Hydrated

During the course of your travel, it is easy to lose track of time. When this happens, sometimes our eating and hydration schedule can fall by the wayside, and while it might be convenient to skip a meal in the interest of making good travel time, your immune function could suffer. Headaches, lethargy, and other signs of dehydration are not only unpleasant, but they can also put a damper on your holiday plans.

Pack Appropriately

Depending on your holiday travels destination, the weather may be different from the climate that you are used to at home. Planning ahead and packing appropriate clothing is an easy way to make sure your body maintains a stable body temperature through your travels. If you’re too hot, you could sweat excessively, which can lead to dehydration. Likewise, there is some evidence that suggests that being exposed to cold temperatures could suppress your immune system.

TRAVEL HEALTHY WITH VIDA-FLO IN BUCKHEAD

Whether you suspect that you’re beginning to exhibit signs of dehydration or you’re hoping to overcome the symptoms of jet lag, the hydration experts at Vida-Flo in Nashville are here to help. We offer several types of hydration therapy treatments that are affordable, effective, and medically beneficial. Book your appointment at our Nashville location on your holiday travels and discover the Vida-Flo difference for yourself!
