The fall and winter seasons are peak cold and flu seasons. Due to cooler weather with minimal humidity, it can be one of the worst times of year to come down with an illness! Additionally, the common cold and the flu can cause debilitating symptoms, ranging from fever and chills to body aches and diarrhea. These symptoms can disrupt the enjoyment of long-planned events or holidays, and even increase the difficulty of everyday responsibilities, like work, childcare, and fitness goals. To help you stay prepared, learn how to use IV therapy to fortify your immune system to combat symptoms and the onset of flu and cold symptoms. Our treatment can provide assistance with draining symptoms and get you back to feeling like the best version of yourself.
Can IV Therapy Prevent the Common Cold or Flu?
The short answer is no, only human isolation can prevent the common cold and flu, however, with a potent blend of electrolytes, IV fluids, vitamins, and antioxidants, IV therapy is an effective way to fortify your immune system. How does it work? In the presence of illness, the immune system is the body’s best preventative weapon. To help maintain and bolster it, IV therapy ensures full absorption of the nutrients by bypassing your digestive system. One of the best treatments is Vitamin B Complex. It is effective at assisting with white blood cell production, which is needed to kickstart the immune response required for fighting infections. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has stated that the average adult can expect to contract between two to three colds each year. We believe that proper hydration and nutrient replenishment are essential in maintaining a healthy immune response. Our Monthly Memberships are a great way to keep your body’s immune system in tip-top shape.
