Intravenous (IV) injections and IV therapy have become popular as a way to boost the immune system. In our ecologically compromised world, we are exposed to a prevalence of over-processed foods, high stress, and harmful chemicals in the air and environment that surround us. Ensuring your body is receiving sufficient nutrients is key to strengthening your immune function and maintaining good health against external factors.
Learn just a few ways that IV therapy can help boost your immune system and benefit your overall health:
Especially for those with digestive issues and sensitivities, it can be hard to get the nutrients you need. You may not be able to consume the natural foods that contain key nutrients, like milk and yogurt, for example, or your body’s digestive tract may be ineffective in actually absorbing the nutrients you consume. With IV nutrient therapy, you are delivering those important vitamins and minerals straight to your body’s cells, bypassing the sometimes problematic and inefficient digestive system.
IV therapy allows you to deliver important, infection-fighting nutrients directly to your cells, which can be a powerful strategy in fighting the symptoms of chronic and acute infections. If you are suffering from chronic infections like candida, Lyme disease or hepatitis, or perhaps acute infections like the flu, Epstein-Barr or mono, IV nutrient therapy can be a way to build up your body’s natural defenses to make you feel better and promote recovery.
Our bodies are constantly exposed to harmful chemicals and pollutants. As we mentioned, these toxins are in the air we breathe, in the food we consume, and in many products we use on a daily basis, including household cleaning products, cosmetic products—even our carpets and furniture. During the cold and flu season, in particular, your body is exposed to an extra influx of airborne infections and viruses. Undergoing IV therapy during the cold and flu season is an easy and effective way of boosting your dosage of nutrients during this period and providing your immune system with the strength it needs to combat this higher level of exposure.

The importance of having a well-functioning and healthy immune system has become increasingly obvious in recent times.
Sadly, everyone seems to have a different answer as to how you should go about strengthening your immune system. When you go to your local health and wellness shop, you might see twenty or thirty products that tout their “immune boosting” powers. An Amazon search reveals thousands of results.
Well, we’re here to tell you about an effective and ancient remedy that has been in use for over two thousand years: the red reishi mushroom.
We’ve all heard about all the negative effects of stress and the modern lifestyle.
We’re all rushing around, overworked, in a constant state of fight-or-flight and it has disastrous effects on our health.
But what if “stress” wasn’t the real problem?
What if our bodies knew exactly how to cope with the intensity of modern life… if we just gave the body what it needed to thrive?
And the key may be one little mineral.
