For most of us, the transition from summer to fall means an increased risk of getting sick. We are more often cooped up indoors, and as the kids return to school, germs and viruses spread like wildfire. The switch to colder weather often means a change in diet as well, with more fast and processed food on the menu, and less fresh produce.
Increased exposure to infectious disease coupled with reduced nutritional support can spell disaster for your immune system. Always fighting the good fight to keep you healthy, an overloaded immune system is forced to go to war, battling invading pathogens on all fronts. The end result is upper respiratory infections, influenza and inflammation as your immune system fights one losing battle after another
Boost Your Immune System and Stay Healthy
Compromised immune function is not inevitable. In fact, it is a choice you make when you fail to nurture your immune system and provide the support it needs to overcome infections.
One important front for battling infections and delivering nutrients is your gut. When healthy, your digestive system has its own unique biome, where healthy microorganisms work to digest and absorb food, and filter out harmful substances. However, a poor diet full of nutritionally depleted foods and antibiotics can destroy the ecosystem of your gut, leaving you nutrient-deficient and vulnerable to infection.
Fermented foods like kimchi, kombucha and sauerkraut are probiotic in nature, meaning they help shore up the healthy bacteria in your gut. Yogurt and other dairy products with live bacterial cultures can also be beneficial. Probiotic supplements are helpful in restoring a heathy gut biome.
Nutrients that Support Immune Function
While probiotics can help, your immune system also relies on micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids to support optimal health. In particular, the minerals magnesium, calcium, selenium and zinc, along with mega doses of B Complex Vitamins and Vitamin C, provide the best immune support.
However, if your gut ecosystem is out of balance, even taking nutritional supplements is not enough to meet the needs of your immune system, because digestion and absorption of nutrients is compromised in an unhealthy digestive biome.
The Solution to Sesonal Infections
You can easily bring reinforcements to help your immune system fight the war against infection by upping your probiotic consumption, eliminating unhealthy foods and beverages, and providing nutritional support through micronutrient IV therapy.
When nutrients are delivered directly to your bloodstream, they bypass your digestive tract, ensuring they are dispatched throughout your body where they are most needed. Micronutrient IV therapy infuses your body with high doses of powerful nutrients, armed to do battle against infectious pathogens.
When combined with probiotics, micronutrient IV therapy can give your immune system the support it needs to combat infections, so you can live your life with robust good health in any season.
