One of the most popular uses for IV therapy is to combat seasonal allergies and their disturbing, distracting, and sometimes disgusting symptoms. You know the ones: nasal congestion, itchy, watery eyes, cough, wheezing, and worse. Seasonal allergies can decrease the quality of life and productivity. Prescription and over-the-counter medications can help alleviate symptoms. Several holistic remedies, meanwhile, such as consuming local honey or elderberry syrups and supplements, can desensitize the body to regional pollens and allergens. Now, though, there’s a better, faster, and more efficient treatment available—IV therapy.
A large part of the cause of the symptoms associated with seasonal allergies is the process of the body attempting to rid itself of problematic allergens. And our bodies’ natural efforts to remove allergens, including runny nose and watery eyes, can cause dehydration as can the inflammation experienced throughout the body, especially the nose and sinuses. IV therapies flush out allergens from the inside out while they rehydrate the body and treat inflammation.
At Cleanz Medical Spa, we start with 1,000 milliliters of saline solution, which includes the electrolytes necessary to return the body to its natural equilibrium. From there, our professional medical team (including our supervising registered nurse) can recommend add-ins that can further alleviate symptoms, helping you to feel better faster. Appropriate add-ins may include:
• Vitamin B12, which can reduce allergy symptoms, including sneezing, congestion, and runny noses.
• Immune system boosting B6, which helps regulate inflammation to suppress allergy symptoms and decrease the severity of allergy attacks. In fact, Vitamin B6 has been shown to lessen throat constriction and reduce mucus buildup in the nose.
• Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and potent allergy symptom reliever.
• Zinc is beneficial for relieving seasonal allergy symptoms because it keeps the immune system functioning properly. Its antidepressant effect helps regulate stress.
In addition to matching the ingredients of an IV to the client’s specific symptoms, which results in more targeted results, it’s important to note that intravenous delivery of the selected vitamins and minerals is more effective than oral consumption of the same.
(Furthermore, frequent use of some antihistamine medications [specifically of Benadryl] has been linked to a possible increase of developing dementia later in life. There are no such risks with the all-natural ingredients we use in our therapies.)
