Although the long, warm days of spring are welcomed by many people, those who have seasonal allergies can find this time of year truly miserable. So, what causes seasonal allergies, and how could IV therapy provide relief?
Seasonal allergies are caused by the pollen that’s released when plants and grasses begin to bloom in spring and summer. The tiny particles of pollen float undetected in the air where they are inhaled, causing the body to produce chemicals called histamines. It’s the histamines that cause the all-too-familiar symptoms of seasonal allergies, including itchy, swollen eyes, sneezing, and a runny nose.
Most people take antihistamines to get rid of the histamines, thus relieving the allergic reaction. But long-term use of antihistamines can decrease their effectiveness, meaning that you have to take greater and greater amounts of the drug to get the same effect.
IV Therapy and Seasonal Allergy Relief
IV therapy delivers balanced doses of minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins directly into the patient’s bloodstream. This provides an immediate boost of the essential nutrients that are needed to treat many health conditions and illnesses, including seasonal allergies.
One way of tackling the menace of seasonal allergies head-on is to administer a high dose of Vitamin C, which are delivered intravenously. Histamines are carried by special white blood cells known as mast cells. Vitamin C works together with other nutrients to provide stability to the mast cells, damping down their ability to readily release histamine into the body. By stabilizing the mast cells the sensitivity of the body’s immune system to seasonal allergens is greatly reduced.
Many people need just one session of IV therapy in at our center Miami to feel the benefit, while those who are more severely affected might need supportive therapy for the whole spring and summer allergy seasons.
Once your body is free of the debilitating symptoms that seasonal allergies cause, you will enjoy a generally improved feeling of wellness and better all-around health.
