Q. How does IV therapy boost your immune system?
A. You’ve heard it your entire life. If you want a healthy immune system, you need to stop by your local pharmacy or drug store and buy supplements. That’s not bad advice, but unfortunately 99 percent of supplements on the market today are poor quality and can cause negative effects to the body. Even the highest-quality supplements have to be digested through the stomach, and that process minimizes the absorption of vital minerals and vitamins. There is worse news for people with digestive disturbances such as bloating and indigestion. They are unable to absorb the nutrients that would normally help them achieve better health.
No need to worry however, because IV therapy is an excellent way to boost the immune system and help it function optimally. When immune system-boosting vitamins and antioxidants are administered intravenously, they bypass the digestive system and ensure a 100 percent absorption rate. At the same time, IV therapy detoxifies and hydrates your body, eliminating free radicals that contribute to toxin buildup and impaired immune function.
Your immune system is improved because all the vitamins and antioxidants are delivered directly to your cells. This is extremely important because disease always begins at the cellular level. Thus, IV therapy allows for a rapid improvement in cellular function and a decrease in disease states. It is important that IV therapy benefits our health on a cellular level. The human body alone has trillions of cells. Cells form body tissue and make up the organs in our body such as the heart, liver and lungs. Without proper nutrition, cells cannot operate efficiently, and the functions of tissues and organs become compromised. This can result in disease. Conversely, when you provide your cells with proper nutrients, you are helping your entire body function at it’s very best.
At Immunity Health Spa, our IV therapy replenishes your body’s essential nutrients because you are getting the full effect of vitamins.
Q. How does your immune system benefit from salt therapy?
A. As we age, lung function can decrease, which leads to many health problems. Fortunately, salt carries antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help people who are suffering from COPD, smoker’s cough, asthma, emphysema and seasonal airborne allergies.
Salt therapy is a 100 percent natural, safe and drug-free therapy. When you breathe in microscopic salt particles, they enter the airway and reach down to a cellular level. At this level, the salt particles stimulate airway linings, improve mucous clearance and allow the immune system to respond better to pathogens. This helps ward off sickness and reduces dependence on medications.
Salt is rich in minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, copper and iron. Inhalation of these minerals help give your immune system a natural boost. Salt therapy also reduces stress, which can weaken your immune system.
Clients who relax in our salt room inhale salt-enriched air deep down into their lungs. This is when the healing benefits begin. Inflammation is reduced, making more room in the airways for people to breathe better. The treatment is particularly beneficial for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, colds and flus, sinus infections and ear infections.
In addition, exposing the skin to salt can improve the general health and appearance of the skin and help relieve or alleviate a number of skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.
From children to teens, adults and senior citizens, everyone can enjoy and benefit from a salt therapy session.
