OAKLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

It’s a growing business throughout the country that’s said to give you the nutrients you need and help finish off those nasty hangovers.

It’s not something you drink or swallow. Instead, it’s injected into your blood stream through and IV.

If you are trying to beat a hangover or get over a bad case of the flu, the people at Curewell IV Haus in Royal Oak said forget taking a pill and give IV therapy a try.

“While I’m sitting here hooked up my color is starting to come back and I feel so much better,” said Andrew Mellos, patient.

Mellos said he stops into the shop every time he starts to feel under the weather.

“I’ve got a couple different things. One thing they call the calm. I’ve got B12 in here. B complex. And I trust them to put in whatever I need,” Mellos said.

You have to fill out a questionnaire and get your vitals taken to get started.

From there they discuss your ailments and choose the vitamin concoction that best meets your needs. Then a trained staffer starts the IV drip.

“We want to make sure that you get this hydration because a lot of us walk around dehydrated. This could be the reason why you might have a headache or you can’t sleep or the reason why your skin isn’t clear,” said Sabra Evans, owner of Curewell IV Haus.

Evans is a former attorney. She stepped away from the courtroom and opened up the IV therapy business.

She said she had her first IV drip when she was on the west coast and she was hooked. That’s why she decided to open up her own shop last year.

Evans claims the treatment is quick and painless.

“Most of the time within 45 minutes of even five minutes the person starts to feel better. Once we get them hooked up to an IV and those fluids start running through them and the medicine gets in there, they start to feel a lot better,” Evans said.

She said the IV therapy is done under the close eye of a physician. She said all of the vitamins are regulated by the FDA and are ordered through pharmacists.

Infusions at Curewell cost anywhere from $50 to $500.

Mellos believes it is worth every penny.

“Whether you’re going on vacation, feeling rundown or even really sick. It’s such a great thing,” Mellos said.
