Attention Allergy Sufferers!
Spring is just around the corner and everyone is ready for green fields and sunshine again, but those with seasonal allergies would rather pass. For allergy sufferers spring means sneezy-runny noses, congestion, headaches, and watery eyes. If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve this year, and leave your Reactine in the cupboard, consider trying IV therapy.
Loaded with vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidant power, our Allergy IV is formulated to decrease allergic tendency and minimize allergic symptoms by decreasing histamine release and reducing inflammation.
Seasonal Allergy All-Stars:
Studies have found that vitamin C can reduce excess inflammation related to allergy without reducing the effectiveness of the immune system. In one study specifically looking at IV vitamin C, more than 50% of study participants were able to manage their allergy without medication and use IV vitamin C alone. Notably, IV vitamin C had superior effects on the non-specific symptoms of allergy such as fatigue, sleep disturbances, cognitive impairment, and mood changes.
Zinc is an essential regulator of our immune system yet a tragically common mineral deficiency. Zinc can dampen unwanted hyperactivity of our immune system, like the reactions seen in allergy, by suppressing proliferation of inflammatory signals and enhancing T-regulatory cells.
Many of our B vitamins have been studied and shown to help reduce allergic tendency. Sufficient B vitamin status is crucial to a properly functioning immune system. B5 has been shown to reduce excess mucous production while B3 slows histamine release. B vitamins are also the backbone for supporting our energy and stress management pathways.
Allergies can leave you feeling dry and sticky, don’t underestimate the power of adequate hydration status!
IV therapy continues to be a safe and effective treatment for many conditions, if you have questions or are curious what IV therapy can do for you, we encourage you to book a consult with one of our naturopathic doctors.
See you for a drip soon,
