iv therapy to boost immune system

The human body’s immune system is an incredible benefit that has greatly facilitated the propagation of the human race for generations. Our bodies are designed to attack and fight off any invaders, however minuscule or invasive. When your immune system is compromised by disease, poor health, or other conditions, IV therapy to boost the immune system is a great way to protect yourself from illnesses in or around Kansas City.

The Human Immune System

Contaminants can invade the body in numerous ways. Injuries that break the skin, sex, insect bites, airborne pathogens that we breathe in, bacteria in what we eat or drink, or even just touching can allow foreign invaders to enter our bodies. It is then that our immune system goes to work. If this all-important network of skin, cells, tissues, and organs cannot keep germs out, they rally to deal with them after they get inside.

Your body can sense what belongs and what does not. When something strange and harmful is detected, special cells are released to travel to the troubled area and help get rid of the invader. All of this happens inside your body, unseen and automatically. Although you cannot detect it, you can experience some symptoms that let you know your body is working to rid itself of dangerous components.

When your body is fighting off sickness or infection, you can experience:

  •   Fever
  •   Nausea
  •   Loose stools
  •   Increased urination
  •   Sweating
  •   Dizziness
  •   High blood pressure

These and other symptoms tell you that your body is working hard to rid your body of viral, bacterial, or toxic invaders. But what happens when your immune system is weakened or compromised?

What is IV Therapy to Boost the Immune System?

When your immune system becomes compromised by disease or some other condition, you need a boost in the important nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that your immune system uses to fight off illness. You can swallow handfuls of supplements daily, but the rate of absorption is low, especially if you suffer from digestive health issues.

At in2GREAT Functional Medicine and Integrative Health in Kansas City, we offer IV therapy to boost the immune system. Aging, cancer treatments, autoimmune diseases, and other conditions can weaken our natural immune systems, leaving us vulnerable. IV therapy infuses vital health components directly into the bloodstream where they can go immediately to work without first being processed by the digestive system.

This quick, safe, and extremely effective therapy provides your body precise nutrients, minerals, and more that your immune system needs to fight off invaders. All-natural and safe, this therapy is administered at in2GREAT by trained medical personnel in a sterile, comfortable medical environment.
