Get Ahead of Winter Colds With IV Nutrition Therapy

As winter approaches, so do the opportunities to pick up colds. Now is the time to give your body a boost in resources so that it can protect itself against late-winter viral infections. And one of the best ways to do that is with our IV infusion therapy.

At Waco Primary Care, Dr. Karl M. Trippe offers a wide array of preventive care treatments, including IV Nutrition Therapy. When it comes to the health of your immune system, you need a number of key vitamins and minerals to provide you with the best protection, which is where our IV therapy comes in.

Here’s a closer look at why you should arm yourself against winter colds by boosting your health with our IV nutrition therapy.

Protecting against colds

When it comes to protecting against colds, vitamin C has long held the spotlight, and for good reason. Vitamin C supports the health of your immune system, which is your first line of defense when it comes to viral infections.

With our IV infusion therapy, we supply high-dose vitamin C, along with other critical vitamins and nutrients that help strengthen your body, including:

  • Magnesium
  • B vitamins
  • Calcium

Taken together, our IV infusion therapy delivers a powerful dose of the resources your body needs for optimal function and overall wellness. And a healthy and strong body is one that’s better able to ward off winter colds more easily.

IV therapy works through your bloodstream

Similar to the way doctors help hospitalized patients get the nutrients they need during an illness, with our intravenous (IV) infusion therapy we’re able to deliver vitamins, nutrients, and essential amino acids directly into your bloodstream. This means your body can absorb the vitamins more efficiently than through oral supplements, which typically have an absorption rate of only 25%-35%.

With our IV therapy, we bypass your digestive system so your body can easily absorb up to 90% of the beneficial vitamins and minerals.

The added benefits of IV infusion therapy

While our IV infusion therapy does a fantastic job in helping you specifically avoid winter colds, our patients also use this treatment to:

  • Decrease stress
  • Improve energy levels
  • Help with sleep
  • Increase hydration
  • Enhance mood
  • Reduce allergy symptoms
  • Reduce toxins

And while this list may seem unrelated to the common cold, the fact is that each of these areas of your health and wellness contributes directly or indirectly to your ability to ward off any number of health issues, including viral infections.
