Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 30, 2013
The heat wave blanketing western states has resulted in triple digit temperatures as high as 117 degrees in Las Vegas. The intense heat has led to an increase in the number of patients seeking IV Therapy at Las Vegas based Hangover Heaven and Vita Heaven.
With a high pressure system hovering over the West, Las Vegas temperatures reached 117 degrees and are expected to remain high throughout the week. With high heat comes exhaustion and dehydration. These are two conditions clients are suffering from or trying to avoid as they line up for IV Therapy at Dr. Jason Burke's Hangover Heaven and Vita Heaven in Las Vegas.
Veteran physician Dr. Jason Burke garnered international recognition when he launched the first and only licensed medical clinic dedicated to the prevention and treatment of hangovers. Dr. Burke infused traditional IV Therapy with his propriety blend of medicines, nutrients, and antioxidants to create the only proven hangover cure. On the heels of Hangover Heaven's success, Dr. Burke launched Vita Heaven, a premiere health and wellness center, in which he offers specially formulated IV Therapy and injections to elite athletes, industry personnel, and soccer moms looking for a supplemental wellness program to enhance overall health and performance.
The stifling heat has caused more Vegas tourists and locals to visit Hangover Heaven and Vita Heaven. In addition to hangover treatments, clients have come in needing additional hydration and nutrients to combat the brutal heat.
"This type of heat makes hangovers worse because it accelerates dehydration, which is one of the four main components of veisalgia. The cases we've seen at Hangover Heaven this weekend have definitely been impacted by this heat. Although alcohol is not a factor for Vita Heaven clients, severe dehydration has been an issue for them during this heat wave. As a result, we've administered a very high number of Myers' Cocktails and IV Performance Hydration treatments over the last week," stated Dr. Burke.
With IV Therapy, hydration, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are delivered intravenously. IV Therapy is the fastest and most effective way to hydrate, repair the body, and shorten recovery time in extreme conditions.
According to Dr. Burke, "In about 30-45 mins, IV Therapy infuses clients with fluids and 10 to 20 times the nutrients a person normally consumes daily. It's a very effective treatment that can regularly supplement a client's wellness program or be utilized less frequently as an emergency measure to combat abnormally high and dangerous heat."
To deal with the demand for IV Therapy during the heat wave, Dr. Burke has increased staff and extended office hours.
"We typically close at 4 p.m. during the week and 5 p.m. on weekends, but we won't turn anyone away who needs help. During this heat wave, groups have arrived after closing, and we have stayed open some days until 8 p.m. to take care of patients. As medical professionals, that's just what we do." Dr. Burke stated.
On Saturday, Channel 8 News Now(KLAS-TV) in Las Vegas produced a segment on intense heat conditions that highlighted Dr. Burke's IV Therapy treatments.
