Boost Your Immune System with IV Therapy and Keep Winter Colds and Coughs at Bay

Winter’s here and that means your risk of catching a cold is dramatically increased compared to the warm months of spring and summer. Getting plenty of rest and fluids is an important part of getting rid of a cold once you have one, but the best way to prevent catching a cold in the first place is to make sure your immune system is strong and gets all the help it needs to fight germs and other pathogens so you can keep colds and the flu at bay.

Some over-the-counter products claim to improve your immune function, and while they may provide a modest benefit, they just can’t compare to IV therapy. At Kaya Health & Wellness, we offer five IV therapy treatments aimed at helping men and women stay healthy and ward off disease Here’s how it works.

Colds and winter weather

Colds are called “colds” because they tend to occur more commonly in cold weather. Long ago, people thought all it took to catch a cold was prolonged exposure to cold air. But today, we know it’s exposure to cold viruses that causes the disease.

There are a few reasons why colds are more common during the winter months:

You can counteract some of these issues to reduce your chances of catching a cold. For instance, using a humidifier at home can be helpful in putting some moisture back into the air so your airways aren’t as dried out. Of course, you don’t spend all your days and nights at home. And it’s at the office, the store, and other public areas where your risk for catching a cold is greatest. To really reduce your chances of getting sick, you need to bolster the body’s immune system so you can fight off cold germs wherever you are.

IV therapy and immune system health

To stay in top shape, your immune system (and the rest of your body too) needs the right vitamins and minerals to maintain optimal function. Unfortunately, most of us don’t get the nutrients we really need even when we’re well. When we get sick, the demands on our body increases, and since we’re already lacking in important vitamins and minerals, that means the immune system isn’t able to respond the way it should to prevent infection.

IV therapy replaces those missing nutrients, providing your immune system and your entire body with the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids necessary for optimal function. Yes, you can get vitamins and minerals through oral supplements. But those products have to go through your digestive system where they’re broken down and diluted. That means only a small fraction of the nutrients and other active ingredients wind up reaching your immune system while the rest are flushed away. With IV therapy, the nutrients are delivered right to your bloodstream so they can go right to work helping your immune system without dilution or degradation that can occur in the digestive tract. Plus, the IV solution helps replenish your body’s fluids to help your airways and nasal passages stay moist so they’re able to trap germs before they reach the rest of your body.

Give your immune system the help it needs

IV therapy at Kaya Health & Wellness features the vitamins and minerals you need to stay healthy, and a complete therapy session takes about 45 minutes to complete.
