A funny thing happens when you travel, you get dehydrated and half the time you never notice it until you are pretty dry. It’s common not only when you fly, but when you use other modes of transportation as well. Dehydration can exaggerate your jet lag, cause you to have low blood pressure or even cause confusion and a fever in the extreme.
What happens when a Denver Bronco, a dispensary owner and a grandmother walk into an iV lounge? Grateful for the feature in The Denver Post today :)

Interview with Chaz Faulhaber, cofounder
Q: How did you get involved in this business?
A: It didn’t take much convincing. After a mountain bike race in Arizona, we were pretty beat up, and an IV the next day seemed like a great way to recover before coming home. The difference was night and day. We were ready to ride our bikes again, which for most riders is unheard of. There weren’t any in Colorado in 2014, so we figured we better do it.
Q: What distinguishes you from other businesses in your category?
A: Onus iV Hydration is Denver’s only full-service IV provider, providing retail appointments, in-home concierge and event/corporate rates. We see IVs as a tool for proactive recovery versus a reactive response. Ninety-nine percent of IV companies treat this as a tool best used for hangovers, however, the benefits to us were always felt proactively. This is why professional athletes, including the Denver Broncos, Nuggets and the Rockies, trust us before games and during their training. You can help your body by boosting your system before you get a cold, when training for an athletic event, before you travel and much more. That’s where “Onus” was born — the onus is on you to take care of yourself and be ready. While our focus is proactive, we’re always happy to help for “reactive” reasons as well.
Q: What do you like best about your line of work?
A: We meet people from all industries and all walks of life that are looking for a little help conquering their mountains. One of our best days was watching a local dispensary owner chatting with a Bronco and a grandmother, all getting IVs at our retail space. It was hilarious because the grandmother had better veins than the Bronco, and he was jealous. This business gives us a chance to feel the pulse of the city. Ultimately it’s about seeing someone’s day turn around for the better.
Onus - Hey Dr. Ben! Hope you are having a great week! We were hoping you can answer some questions about when our customers should come in for IV hydration!
Dr. Ben - Awesome! Fire away.
As it begins to heat up outside, we are excited to announce our second location will open on Thursday, June 15, 2017 in The Landmark in Greenwood Village. One of the quickest ways to recover from exhaustion, illness, jetlag, altitude sickness, muscle cramping, hangovers, minor colds or intense workouts, the common practice of IV (Intravenous) hydration provides immediate hydration and vitamin boost through IV cocktails administered by a licensed and certified medical team.
"If you really want to give your body a boost, try an intravenous fluid recovery session. Once the domain of pro athletes (and med students recovering from hangovers), this rehydration method is now available to the active masses in 60-minute sessions. Several fluid recovery centers, such as Onus IV Hydration and Divine Hydration Therapies, have recently popped up in Denver and will customize a recovery recipe for you."
Grateful for Business Den's front-page feature on our expansion into South Denver! What gave us the confidence to expand south was the variety of clientele who consistently traveled from Parker, Highlands Ranch, even Colorado Springs just to get an treatment from our iV bar in North Denver. Along the way however, we've fielded a number of questions and are happy to help guide many of you on your journey into the realm of iV nutrient therapy.
1. Do iVs help with Anti-aging?
It's not just in your head, hangovers really do get worse with age! What was once a fleeting form of fun in Colorado, where all its microbreweries, distilleries and craft cocktail makers abound, is now a calculated choice (for most of us) of "What do I need to do tomorrow before I have another?" Thanks to the Telegraph for writing "8 reasons hangovers really do get worse with age"
