IV Therapy Can Help You Thrive Through Cold and Flu Season

We have entered into the cold and flu season that many of us have been dreading. Even if you’re one who would generally say “I don’t get sick,” this time of year may bring a bit of mild anxiety at the very thought that the flu could target you out of the blue. In our part of the country, we don’t think too much about frigid temperatures, snow, rain, and windchill. We do still need to think about protecting ourselves from preventable illness.

During the holidays, we are presented with countless opportunities to gather with friends and family. Throughout the course of just a few weeks, we may touch more door handles than we do the rest of the year. We may sleep less than we would like. We may stress more than we normally do. At the same time, we revel in holiday cheer and forget that we are taxing our body. That is until we get that sniffle or cough.

There are several ways in which we can increase our chances of surviving cold and flu season without much impact. For some, the flu shot is the answer. Others carry hand sanitizer with them at all times and consume extra doses of vitamin C before they begin their busy day. These are good strategies, but there is more you can do. If you’re in the Scottsdale area, we encourage you to also contact our office to schedule a short session of IV nutrition therapy.

The Flu-Fighting Abilities of IV Nutrition

We have become so accustomed to ingesting vitamins and other supplements that we may not even realize how inadequate this can be during peak times of the year. When the objective is to prevent a cold or the flu, we want maximum absorption of nutrients. When we take vitamins and supplements by mouth, only about 15% gets absorbed for use. IV therapy, on the other hand, delivers 100% of the necessary nutrients into the blood for immediate availability. Additionally, IV nutrients are combined with fluid that dramatically hydrates the body, aiding in detoxification and immune function.
