Every year, huge numbers of Americans are sidelined by colds and flu, suffering from nasal congestion, headaches, sleepless nights, fever, and other symptoms. In some instances, these common respiratory viruses can lead to serious and even life-threatening complications.
While “home remedies” may help reduce your symptoms, and the flu vaccine may even help prevent infections in some people, ideally, you want to help your body do all it can to ward off these and other illnesses naturally. That’s when intravenous (IV) therapy can help.
At Micari Aesthetics, our team helps patients in Bellmore, New York, maximize their natural immunity through IV therapy tailored to their unique needs. In this post, learn how IV therapy can help you stay healthy during this cold and flu season.
Most people are familiar with IV therapy as a method hospitals use to deliver medicines and fluids. That same technique is used in outpatient settings to deliver nutrient-rich fluids directly to your bloodstream.
During a therapy session, a thin needle is placed in a vein in your arm. A container filled with fluid attaches to the needle via a long, flexible tube. All you need to do is relax while the IV does all the work.
IV therapy differs from oral supplements because micronutrients are administered directly to your bloodstream instead of passing through your digestive tract. That means more of those nutrients reach your tissues and organs instead of being broken down or diluted by digestive juices. And, unlike oral supplements, you don’t need to worry about how well your body is absorbing vitamins and minerals because they’re already in your circulatory system.
Plus, IV hydration formulas are highly customizable depending on your needs. To help you ward off infections and illnesses, we offer both an immunity boost formula and a detox formula to remove waste products and toxins that could interfere with your immune system function or make your body more prone to sickness.
Your immune system is designed to protect your body from invading germs, but to do its job, it needs plenty of fluids and nutrients. IV therapy delivers the specific key nutrients associated with optimal immune system function, including important antioxidants like vitamin C.
At the same time, you receive a “dose” of fluids to help cells and tissues stay healthy. Hydration also helps your body eliminate toxins and waste products more efficiently, letting your immune system focus on preventing infections.
Direct delivery to your bloodstream means your immune system can use those fluids and nutrients to fight off germs right away. Plus, IV hydration can be a great way to recover more quickly if you wind up coming down with a cold or flu.
Give your body the tools it needs to ward off illnesses this season and all year round by making IV hydration part of your health and wellness routine. To learn more, call 631-748-6898 or request an appointment online with the team at Micari Aesthetics today.
