Cold and Flu IV
About This IV
Wrong! What few people realize is that there is no reason at all for you to suffer unnecessarily with fever, aches, and pain indefinitely. Immediate rehydration, replenishing vital nutrients, an anti-inflammatory for the pain, and some secret weapons to boost your immunes system, all delivered by IV will have you feeling better in no time flat.
Which is precisely what we designed this IV to do. It helps you feel better fast when you’re under the weather with a cold or the flu.
We begin with 1 liter of crystalloid hydration—the same solution used to rehydrate and replace fluid losses in emergency and operating rooms. We add Toradol, a powerful non-narcotic anti-inflammatory to end your aches, fever and pain. Other ingredients include immune boosters like vitamin C, minerals like zinc, magnesium and selenium, L-glutamine, and B vitamins.
If your symptoms are early and severe we can even add a potent new IV anti-influenza medication to the mix. We can also boost your immune system quickly with an additional shot of Vitamin D, which can run low especially in the winter.
Don’t let a cold or the flu slow you down. Life’s too short to spend it feeling sick. Schedule an appointment now and let us help you take advantage of one of the best kept secrets in modern medicine.
Vitamin C has long been touted as a potent anti-viral agent. Before the polio vaccine was invented Vitamin C injections were commonly used as therapy for this severe infection. More recently in 2014 animal studies have shown a direct effect of Vitamin C against influenza virus in vivo (2). Additionally another study in 2011 showed that anti-oxidants (vitamin C, glutathione, alpha lipoic acid) can lessen the severe symptoms and co-morbidity associated with H1N1 influenza virus and are considered an important add-on therapy in surviving the flu (3).
Vitamin D has recently been shown to be a potent regulator of the immune system and is involved in possibly preventing bacterial and viral infections by increasing cathelicidins—substances used to kill invading infectious agents made by our own immune systems. The author of this review article (1) writes “Vitamin D may be acting as a panaceal antibiotic agent and thus may be useful as an adjuvant therapy in diverse infections.”
Taken together, these vitamins as well as the other compounds in this IV provide robust immune system support that will help you heal from a cold or the flu more quickly.
