Ultimate London Marathon Recovery from The IV Doctor™


Running the London Marathon? Then read on…. Doubtless all your effort and energy have been put into your training to run well on race day.  But have you thought about your recovery? You really should, as running the London Marathon will not just deplete your energy reserves and take its toll on your muscles, it can also dehydrate you, lower your immunity and lay you open to picking up a cough or cold.

“Long distance training and race day can lay runners open to coughs, colds and upper-respiratory infections following the race,” says Dr Joshua Berkowitz, Medical Director of The IV Doc UK. “Running the London Marathon will temporarily lower your immunity as your body reacts to the strain of a long hard run by releasing the stress hormone cortisol, known to suppress your immune system,” he explains. “Add to that the high risk of dehydration and depletion of electrolytes after the race and you can see how running a marathon can leave you feeling exhausted or under the weather – hardly the way to celebrate your achievement.”

Help is at hand from the IV Doc which has developed a special London Marathon Recovery Drip for finishers who want to be up-and-running again at home or work soon after their race.  

  • Comprising the key amino acids Methionine, Taurine, Lysine, Phenylalanine and L-Carnitine and an electrolyte solution containing Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium, this drip will help your recover fully and fast from the physical impact of running 26.2 miles.

  • With up to 1,000 ml of fluid given, the drip will instantly boost hydration throughout the body. Oral intake of fluids and vitamins have an absorption rate of at best 50%-60%, whereas I.V. hydration is 100% absorbed, making it the fastest way to replenish fluids and electrolytes.

The IV Doc team can administer this fast-acting IV therapy and vitamin infusion to people at their London home, hotel or office. In addition, the London Marathon Recovery Drip will be available at the IV Doc Lounge in Wimpole Street, London W1. The fully supervised treatment lasts between 45 – 60 minutes.

The London Marathon Recovery Drip will be available for London Marathon Finishers for just TWO DAYS on April 29-30, 2019 at a reduced cost of £99 for the IV Lounge treatment or £175 if the nurse comes to your home, office or hotel.  Booking is essential to avoid disappointment. Book online at www.theivdoc.com/services and select London.  Or call 07480 048007 to book by phone.
