During the 2017-2018 flu season, nearly 30,500 people were hospitalized with the flu. And many more people struggled with cold and flu symptoms at home instead of seeking treatment.
This year, jump-start your defense against colds and the flu by coming to Today’s Integrative Health in Rockville, Maryland, for IV therapy. Our IV therapies include a variety of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that can improve your immune system’s response to viruses. Read on to learn how our service can help you stay healthy this winter.
Give your body more vitamin C to fight illnesses
You’ve probably heard that drinking orange juice can help improve your body’s immune system. Orange juice benefits you because it contains a significant amount of vitamin C. You can get similar results from eating other citrus fruits and even potatoes.
Unfortunately, you can only eat and drink a certain amount of vitamin C before your body excretes it through urine. High-dose vitamin C IV therapy at Today’s Integrative Health doesn’t have that problem. Since we put vitamin C directly into your bloodstream, your body can absorb the entire dose.
When you give your immune system a boost with vitamin C, you make it easier for your body to fight the viruses that cause colds and influenza. As an extra benefit, high-dose vitamin C IV therapy will give you more energy to help you get through the cold winter days.
IV therapy helps you stay hydrated through cold and flu season
A lot of people get dehydrated during the fall and winter because they don’t think about drinking water. In the summer, you get hot and sweat more, so you’re more aware that you need to drink water. You still need plenty of water in the winter, but you may not notice it as easily.
Letting your body get dehydrated can make you more vulnerable to the viruses that cause colds and influenza. When you’re well-hydrated, your blood can carry more oxygen to your body’s cells. As a result, your cells can stay healthy and fend off attacks to your immune system.
Sitting down for a quick session of IV therapy can keep you well-hydrated, which can keep your body in top shape throughout the cold and flu season.
A dose of glutathione lowers stress levels
Research shows that stress can prevent your immune system from doing its job well. IV therapy that includes glutathione, an amino acid, can help lower your stress levels so your immune system functions better.
Additional ways to keep stress in check include exercising regularly, meditating, reducing your caffeine consumption, and spending time with your loved ones.
