With winter almost upon us, we’ve officially entered the heart of cold and flu season. Frequent hand washing, getting lots of sleep, and eating a healthy diet can help fight off the bugs and viruses of winter. But your best defense against infection? Fortifying your immune system.
At Daly Integrated Medical Group in Titusville, Florida, we’re committed to helping you live your healthiest life. Our experienced care team offers nutritional IV therapy as a way to boost your immune system and keep you cold- and flu-free this season.
Read on to learn more about IV nutrition therapy and how it can help fortify your immune system this flu and cold season.
Why worry about nutrition during cold and flu season?
The nutrients found in your food are your body’s secret weapon in keeping you healthy and well. When your nutrition is balanced, your body’s natural repair and regeneration processes operate optimally. Balanced nutrition (https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/how-to-boost-your-immune-system) increases your ability to fight off colds and other viral infections, like the flu, by helping your immune system function at peak levels.
Without the right nutrition, you’re at risk of contracting illnesses and viruses that can spoil your winter memories. It’s challenging, however, to eat perfectly balanced meals and snacks all year long. IV nutrition therapy provides balanced nutrition to enhance your natural resistance against infections.
Why choose IV nutrition over supplements?
IV nutrition has a big advantage (https://www.healthline.com/health/under-review-IV-vitamin-therapy#3) over oral supplements when it comes to delivering nutrients to the bloodstream. That’s because oral supplements have to travel through your digestive system before the nutrients in them reach your bloodstream. The result? Fewer nutrients are available for absorption, as some are lost during the digestive process.
With IV nutrition therapy, essential nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream. This increases the absorption of the nutrients you take in, giving you a variety of health benefits, including:
A stronger immune system
Minimizing the signs of aging
Promoting weight loss
Your cognitive performance also improves because IV nutrition therapy improves brain fog, helping you stay alert and active during the colder, darker winter months.
Are all IV nutrition blends the same?
At Daly Integrated Medical Group, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to IV nutrition. Instead, we customize your treatment. Your specialist takes your medical history and current health needs into account to customize a nutrition blend for your needs or condition.
Since your needs can change with the seasons or with any new condition, your IV nutrition is always tailored for you right before treatment. This is especially helpful in keeping you healthy during winter’s cold and flu season.
How can I get started with IV nutrition therapy?
When combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle habits, IV nutrition therapy may give your immune system the boost it needs to make it through this year’s cold and flu season unscathed. Be sure to seek treatment from an experienced medical professional like the compassionate team at Daly Integrated Medical Group.
