If you are one of those people who often travel abroad and it involves crossing time zones, you will be familiar with what jet lag can do to your body and its natural circadian rhythm, or or circadian dysrhythmia. You will find that the disruptions can result in fatigue, stomach issues, dehydration, insomnia, and more. The trick is to keep hydrated and exercise. Sometimes melatonin pills and blue light blockers can also work.
Then there is the mini hack - the IV drip therapies that have become popular in the West. You can find them in India too now.
Happy Head, India’s first exclusive IV clinic, is offering IV (intravenous) infusions to deliver essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream for health, wellness, and healing. Clinics propagating IV drips fro treatment say that infusing nutrients via IV therapy bypasses the GI system and allows for immediate availability at the cellular level.
Happy Head has a professionally trained medical team which brings you therapies with lightning-fast rejuvenation, resolving hangovers, detoxing organs, and even reversing ageing. The team of four doctors includes founder Dr. Venkaiah Mulakalapalli, MBBS, MS who is an orthopaedics and knee replacement surgeon; Dr. Mounica Vadlamudi MBBS, MD (anesthesiology); Dr. Sri Sai Nivya Kilari MBBS, MD (General Medicine Fellowship in Diabetology), and Dr. Sneha Latha Paritala MS (OBGYN).
Happy Head provides a mix of different drips for different issues. The Frequent Flyer drip addresses jet lag with a blend of vitamins and hydrating fluids that gives your energy levels a boost and helps you recover from the stress of air travel and sleep deprivation. The ingredients include B12 (for an instant energy boost), folic acid -(produces melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and appetite), magnesium (relieves headaches and also helps in melatonin production), and electrolytes (supports the dehydrated body in the low humidity flight environment).
