Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy for Flu Prevention
It’s that time again… the 2012 Flu Season. Coming down with an occasional cold may be normal - however, do you find yourself getting one cold after another or a bad case of the flu - year after year? Perhaps this results in lost wages or the inability to enjoy life, for days or weeks at a time? Some people may request or demand an antibiotic to treat a cold or a virus, which unfortunately may be a contributing factor of antibiotic resistance. Antibiotics can disrupt beneficial flora in the intestines - weakening the immune system by allowing yeast organisms to overgrow (Candidiasis)… leading to a fierce series of improper treatment and recurring infections. (Of course, if a bacterial infection develops, antibiotic treatment may be necessitated.) Other treatment options do exist - such as Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy, especially if there are no other health issues (organ-transplant recipients, HIV or Rheumatoid Arthritis) that compromise the immune system. Perhaps stress is a factor, especially at this time of year.
Stress, stress, stress - it truly can wreak havoc on the body. Stress causes the adrenal glands to produce high levels of cortisol, which can suppress the immune system. Luckily, vitamins for stress, such as Vitamin C, can come to the rescue!
At the AIMS Clinic, we believe that there are a multitude of health benefits of Vitamin C, which play a vital role in the prevention and treatment of numerous health symptoms and diseases. According to studies and scientific evidence, Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy (if used at the proper dose):
- Reduces the severity and duration of a cold or flu
- Is one of the best antiviral agents offered
- Eliminates and neutralizes a broad range of toxins
- Revitalizes and boosts energy levels, especially when combined with Vitamin B-Complex, minerals and amino acids (Synergistic Effect)
- Benefits allergies due to its’ antihistamine properties
- Helps in some neurological conditions
- Helps depression by raising neurotransmitter levels
- Speeds healing after surgery and helps wounds repair
- Has cancer fighting properties (according to the National Institute of Health)
- Offers immune protection while traveling
Intravenous Vitamin C therapy is a powerful tool, which allows one to increase tissue levels of Vitamin C, normally unavailable to the body, if given in another form. It works with your body - naturally! Typically, 10 - 20 grams are infused routinely at the AIMS Clinic. Taking large doses of Vitamin C orally may result in stomach upset and diarrhea, as well as in poor absorption (most may be excreted). IV Vitamin Therapy bypasses the stomach and intestines - therefore no gastric distress. It can directly transport pharmacological effective amounts of the nutrient desired. Nutrients become available… almost immediately!
