IV Therapy for Immune Boosting

At this crucial time when the entire country is thinking about boosting immunity, many are considering IV therapy. IV therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies, boost immune function, decrease inflammation and fight free radicals by directly “feeding” the cells.
IV administration safely allows patients to get nutrients in quantities up to 10 times greater than can be tolerated orally. IV therapy helps maintain optimum health as well as treat specific conditions. They can be useful in detoxification programs, for immune stimulation or for restoration because of depletion of body stores. Scientific evidence has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition therapy.
Why get IV therapy? Aside from boosting the immune system, it can help: increase energy levels, speed up illness recovery, recover from a hangover, treat dehydration, aid in weight loss, recover from jet lag, prepare for a surgical procedure and aid in the anti-aging process.

Infusions to Consider
• Meyers: This popular IV infusion includes key cellular ingredients necessary for a robust immune system and optimal energy. It includes powerful antioxidants such as B-complex, vitamin C and minerals such as zinc, selenium and magnesium. These vitamins and minerals synergistically work to optimize metabolic processes, boost the immune system, enhance energy production and promote neurotransmitter production.

• Vitamin C Therapy: This IV provides a powerful boost of immune enhancing ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Such treatments are used in cancer, immune deficiencies, chronic fatigue and other autoimmune disorders. This IV therapy delivers from 15,000 to 50,000mg of C that infuses straight into the bloodstream over a few hours, which surpasses the maximum orally tolerated dose of vitamin C.

• Basic Hydration: This IV infusion provides a full liter of crystalloid or “saline”, which is the same balanced, electrolyte fluid used in operating rooms to rapidly expand blood volume and perfusion. Such immediate improvement in circulation increases the delivery of oxygen, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to organs and tissues. IV re-hydration can almost instantly correct feelings of fatigue, nausea, headaches and other symptoms of dehydration.
