What are the benefits of Immunity IV Therapy?
To put it plainly, it’s used to improve and support your overall immune health. Immunity also aids in the recovery from any active illnesses you might be experiencing, as well as helping to prevent future illnesses. The focus with this particular IV is to increase vital vitamin (B & C) and zinc levels on an intracellular level (meaning in the cell) to improve your immunity.
Vitamin C is known to kill free radicals; it increases your body’s ability to actually kill pre-cancerous and cancerous cells (more on that below); it can even improve your mood. In addition, and most do not know or realize this, it can even help to increase intercourse frequency.
Then you have the B vitamins and zinc, which are known to also play a key role in fighting and preventing infection. We get a lot of phone calls from people during the flu season about IV therapy for immunity. We had a patient who was always telling us that she gets ill every winter. This past winter, she came in for IV immunity therapy every week for about 13 or 14 weeks and she did not get sick at all this year! So we know it works.

Immunity IV Can Help with Cancer Treatment
Patients undergoing chemotherapy for immunotherapy often find benefit from IV therapy because of the high doses of Vitamin C that can be administered. Many cancer treatment centers (especially on the west coast), will actually give you high dose vitamin C through an IV as they treat you with your typical chemotherapy drugs.
We had a large cancer treatment center out in the west coast call us, asking us to take care of one of their patients here. The sad truth is that most places outside of those big metropolis cities won’t offer IV therapy for cancer treatment. We’re proud to offer high dose vitamin
C here in the Midwest for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The doses being administered here are far and beyond what you could achieve over the counter, which we’ll get into a little here next.
Can it help fight COVID-19?
During the COVID crisis, people are searching the internet. Many people are very aware of high dose vitamin C IV therapy to help protect them against viruses, bacteria, and basically improve their overall health. A lot of people take vitamin C every time they get sick or around the months they know they always tend to get sick. This is a good practice to get in the habit of, but know it may not be enough.
What you have to understand is that the intracellular amount of vitamin C you can get from an over-the-counter pill is very limited. That’s why IV therapy for immunity is the best option for improving your immunity function. The levels of vitamin C achieved through IV are far greater and are being administered directly into the veins. This results in faster and more effective results than traditional oral medication, and they’re often customized to fit your individual needs!
Who benefits from IV Therapy for Immunity?
Well, truly everyone can benefit from immunity IV therapy! Those that may benefit from it more are those that know they get sick or experience flu-like symptoms yearly. So if you find you’re getting sick too often (viruses, colds, sinus infections, etc.) The high dose of vitamin C in the IV can help tremendously to keep you healthy and happy. Again, these are much higher levels than you can take by mouth from over-the-counter medication.
