According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cold and flu season peaks in the months of December through February. So, since we’re currently right in the middle of the worst part of the sickness season, you might find yourself constantly battling an illness.
Your best defense against illnesses is a strong immune system. There are many ways you can boost your immune system, from making healthy lifestyle choices to taking oral supplements. However, getting immunity boosts from IV therapy is one of the best ways to support your immune system.
At Rejuvenate IV Therapy in Spring, Texas, our team led by Katherine Go, CRNA, offers IV therapy for boosted immunity. In this blog, we review why getting immunity infusions is your best weapon against illness this winter.
When a pathogen such as a virus enters your body, your immune system jumps into action. Your blood vessels dilate to make room for white blood cells to do their job, which is to release chemicals to fight the germ.
However, when your blood vessels swell and your white blood cells release chemicals, it causes all the symptoms that come with a winter illness: a sore throat, stuffy nose, cough, and fever. So, symptoms aren’t actually produced by the virus, they’re signs that your body is fighting to keep you healthy.
After your body gets accustomed to the virus, it starts making antibodies as a long-term strategy, keeping you safe should the virus ever come back.
Because your immune system has so many jobs to do to fight off illness, it needs to be strong to function properly and effectively. If you have a strong immune system, your illnesses won’t be nearly as long or severe.
Some great ways to naturally strengthen your immune system include getting plenty of sleep each night, drinking lots of hydrating liquids, and exercising on a regular basis. You also need to eat a variety of immunity-boosting nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, and magnesium.
If you don’t feel like you’re getting enough nutrients in your diet alone, you can also take multivitamins to fill in the gap.
Even though getting a good night’s sleep and taking oral supplements can do a lot for your immune system, it still might not be enough. That’s why we offer IV therapy to get your immune system in tip-top shape.
Our IV drips offer all the important nutrients needed for a healthy immune system, along with hydrating electrolytes, a cocktail made specifically for better immunity.
Getting nutrients intravenously also ensures that you’re receiving the maximum amount your body needs. Eating a healthy diet and taking oral supplements only gets your body a small dosage because your digestive system absorbs a lot of the nutrients. When you bypass the gut, you get efficient results quickly.
