IV Nutritional Therapy helps prevent colds and the flu during the winter months.
The 2018 Flu season is one of the worst recorded outbreaks in years. The flu shot had a very low level of effectiveness and people are getting sick and staying sick much longer than the common cold.
So how do we battle against this bad bug? Can nutrition help?
While adequate hand washing is still one of the best ways to prevent transmission of viruses and bacteria, nutrition is the greatest defense you can give yourself. Being under larger and larger levels of stress increases the rate at which our vitamins and mineral cofactors are used up.
IV therapy has been around for decades and not just for emergency fluids. By infusing high doses of vitamins and minerals directly into the body, we can improve our chances of boosting the immune system.
How soon will I feel better after an IV?
You can expect to feel a little better right away after the infusion but the next day is when people really feel a sense of clarity, overcoming their symptoms such as body aches, chills, and fatigue.
High dose Vitamin C is very important for our white blood cells to fight infections. Since we cannot make this on our own, we must get it in regularly through diet.
But when you are faced with being sick, no amount of oral supplementation can go up against what can go directly into the IV. Bypassing the digestive system gives you a mega dose without the intestinal upsets of heavy dosing orally.
How long does an IV take?
The IV Drip takes anywhere from 30-45 minutes so people love to come in and sit back in our cozy recliners to either read a book, catch up on emails or social media, or even better simply closing their eyes and resting. An extra dose of magnesium, zinc, and selenium provide a relaxing experience that gets you feeling better sooner.
So instead of just reaching for medications to turn off the symptoms, look towards an IV for enhanced nutritional delivery and immunity.
