28 Jun How IV Therapy Can Help Allergy Symptoms
Allergies are an unfortunate reality for many of us this season. Fortunately, there are many things we can do to mitigate the symptoms seasonal allergies cause. IV therapy can help allergy symptoms in many ways. In fact, the powerful concentration of vitamins in certain IV therapies can help both acute symptoms and chronic allergies. Let’s break down the Myers Cocktail IV, one of our favorite IV therapies for allergy relief.
Myers Cocktail IV Therapy and Allergies
The Myers “cocktail” was named after physician, John Myers, M.D., who used IV vitamin therapies as treatment for many types of infections, illnesses, and allergies. It’s the perfect IV if you’re looking for a general wellness IV Therapy. And, it’s an incredible treatment for those dreaded Spring to Summer Allergies that tend to sneak up on us this time of year! Below we breakdown the vitamins in this powerful IV.
Vitamin B12 is naturally available in foods like salmon, eggs, poultry, and dairy products. It’s an an immune boosting vitamin that also helps stress–something that can actually worsen allergies!
This extra boost of B12 in this IV Therapy can help allergy symptoms by working systematically, helping your body’s systems to work in harmony to better handle any allergen you may come into contact with.
Vitamin B complex is composed of eight B vitamins: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid), and B12 (cobalamin).
B Complex is available in foods like leafy greens, liver and kidneys, shellfish, red meats and dairy. When it comes to allergies, this helps to relieve inflammation and lessen the severity of allergy symptoms.
Magnesium is available in foods, such as almonds, cashews, wheat bran, leafy greens, beans, and even dark chocolate.
It is an excellent mineral for allergy relief because magnesium is a bronchodilator and an antihistamine. It can help to relieves the constriction of the airways in the lungs.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that protects your cells from damage, reduces the severity of allergic reactions by helping to strengthen your immune system.
Vitamin C works to reduce histamine production in the body. This helps to slow down your body’s response to environmental allergies. It also helps to “prevent excessive inflammation without reducing the defensive capacity of the immune system.” (1)
The Myers Cocktail IV also includes calcium. This is a vitamin that works more toward whole body health so that your body is better equipped to handle allergy symptoms. Your body needs calcium in order to circulate blood, move muscles, and release hormones. Calcium also helps carry messages from your brain to other parts of your body. It helps to correct mineral imbalances in your body, which keeps your immune system and your whole body working optimally.
As you can see, the Myers Cocktail IV is an excellent IV to maintain general wellness, which is a fantastic way to keep your body strong during allergy season. But, the vitamins in this IV therapy can help allergy symptoms more acutely, as well. Vitamin C, B12, and Magnesium work fast to open your airways, prevent inflammation, and work to balance histamine levels in the body.
