It’s allergy season in Minnesota and you might be wondering about using IV therapy for allergies.
While nothing can “cure” your allergies, in many cases IV therapy is a great way to help reduce inflammation from seasonal & environmental allergens, as well as help boost the body’s ability to process the histamines that are causing symptoms like a runny nose or watery eyes.
Why Use IV Therapy for Allergies?
What are seasonal allergies?
Allergies are simply an issue of the body’s immune system getting its signals crossed, or being overly sensitive. When a “foreign invader” like pollen, dander, or a certain foods enter your body, sometimes your immune system will mistakenly label them as dangerous & produce an antibody – basically a tag that the body uses to remain on alert for that substance in the future. When that substance does find its way into your system in the future, your antibodies fire up & start releasing immune system chemicals, such as histamines. It’s the histamines that cause problems like inflammation, watery eyes, runny nose. The histamines are trying to get the particles out of your body in any way they can.
How can IV therapy help with my allergies?
There are many different ways IV fluids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and medications may help with the symptoms of allergies (the only true allergy “cure” is desensitization, which is what allergy shots aim to do). Here are a few of the most compelling reasons to give IV therapy a try for allergy symptoms:
Flooding the system with fluids is actually a great way to help your body out as it tries to clear allergens. If you’re dehydrated, your mucus membranes are dehydrated, making them dry & sticky – and causing the release of histamines. Fluids also help your body flush out both environmental allergens themselves and histamines that are trying to clear them.
Vitamin C is known as “nature’s anti-histamine” and the research really does back it up. Studies show that IV vitamin C is effective at reducing certain allergy symptoms, including reducing histamines by metabolizing them. Vitamin C is also a known anti-inflammatory.
Glutathione is the master antioxidant, and is essential in helping the liver break down toxins & chemicals so your body can get rid of them. In the case of allergies, glutathione helps your body eliminate excess histamine. Your body makes glutathione, but it gets depleted rapidly when your liver is working overtime to process chemicals – whether they are environmental toxins, medications, allergens, or just alcohol. In fact, studies have shown that glutathione levels are lower in those who suffer from seasonal allergies.
