I’m Dr. Jack Dybis, founder of IVme Wellness + Performance. Born in Chicago and raised in Grand Rapids, MI, I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Dayton in Ohio and returned to the Windy City to attend medical school at Midwestern University. I then completed my surgical residency which eventually led to a position as a General and Trauma Surgeon at Evanston Hospital.
The idea for IVme started when
Running a marathon is a tremendous feat both physically and mentally. Preparing for those 26.2 miles takes many months of training and fine-tuning your marathon strategy. And, as dedicated runners know, even when you cross the finish line, the work isn’t over; the recovery plan is another essential element to a successful marathon experience.
Unfortunately, the medical staff at IVme has witnessed too many times the pain and agony suffered by runners who neglect their post-race recovery. Cellular damage, muscle soreness and fatigue, and a weakened immune system can keep runners from returning to normal activities for many weeks, and sometimes longer.
The most memorable weddings are not the ones with the most extravagant budgets, they are the ones where the bride and groom are happy, smiling and having the time of their lives.
This may sound simple, but when you consider the details and stresses that come with planning a wedding, it’s no wonder many brides and grooms reach their big day feeling rundown, exhausted, anxious and, sometimes, sick. An easy, but often overlooked solution to preventing exhaustion and illness is hydration. Unfortunately too few of us maintain healthy hydration levels during average day-to-day activities to sustain us during exceptionally busy and stressful times.
