Now that summer is coming to a close and the school year is beginning, that can only mean the return of fall, environmental allergies, and various illnesses brought home by kids.
The cold and flu season is upon us, and that means we need to boost our immune systems to protect ourselves from contracting any illnesses.
Thankfully, there are ways that we can help build your immunity to fight off any viruses or illnesses that try to bring you down!
One of those ways is through IV Therapy.
Fun Fact: IV vitamin therapy has a 10x faster absorption rate compared to oral supplements!
If you’re looking for a way to boost your immunity, keep reading to learn about how IV therapy can help!
What Is IV Therapy?
Intravenous Therapy (IV therapy) delivers hydrating liquids, vitamins, nutrients, and medication into the system through needle injection into the veins. Your medical professional will insert a small needle into the veins at the injection site and hang a bag of fluid that will be administered directly into the bloodstream over a period of time.
When Did It Start?
IV therapy has been around since the 1800s, but it wasn’t until around the 1950s that it started being used for nutrient treatments. Dr. John Myers is said to have pioneered this type of hydration therapy and now has the most popular IV formula named after him: The Myers Cocktail.
Why Is It Effective?
As we said above, IV vitamin therapy absorbs faster than oral vitamins, supplements, and minerals. This therapy also has a better, more effective absorption rate because it is injected directly into the bloodstream. This means your body absorbs 100% of the nutrients being injected, rather than only partial (sometimes only 10% – 20%) absorption if it went through your digestive system.
The nutrients injected through IV vitamin therapy also stay in your body longer (up to 2 weeks) than oral supplements. Therefore, it is recommended that you go in for vitamin therapy treatment every 1-2 weeks, depending on what you need it for!
If you struggle with taking pills or have stomach issues, this is a great treatment for you to try for all different purposes, such as migraines, hangovers, fatigue, athletic recovery, and more.
Give Yourself A Boost!
If you want to fight off viruses and illnesses brought on from the changing seasons, traveling, or being around large crowds of people, give IV therapy a try!
IV therapy effectively boosts the immune system by using a custom formula made up of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. The specific ingredients used in the formula are powerhouses for helping to protect your body.
Every wellness center is different when it comes to the ingredients they use; however, most formulas include the following components:
- Vitamin B
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Anti-inflammatory vitamins
Keeping your body hydrated is also essential because a hydrated body is a happy and healthy body! Being hydrated keeps your internal organs functioning properly and at their most effective. When you’re dehydrated, your body is working overtime which means you are more susceptible to catching the common cold and other viruses going around.
