How IV Therapy can help alleviate symptoms of Seasonal Allergies

April 28, 2020 Drip IV Therapy

Drip IV’s Immunity formula is a specially formulated nutritional blend to boost the immune system and help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies develop from being exposed to airborne irritants, like pollens or weeds, that appear only during certain months of the year. Seasonal allergies are also known as allergic rhinitis or hayfever. Still, this name can be misleading because seasonal allergies can strike during fall and spring, too, not just summer when it is hay season. The allergens in the air cause the immune system to respond by creating antibodies like it is trying to fight off an infection. The antibodies cause histamine to release, and that triggers the body to react, triggering allergic reactions.

Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies

Symptoms of seasonal allergies include itchy, runny nose, watery or puffy eyes, coughing, throat irritation, sinus congestion, headache, fatigue, wheezing, sneezing, and itchy skin. These symptoms are uncomfortable and an inconvenience for anyone that suffers from seasonal allergies. The good news is that Drip IV’s Immunity Drip formula is an effective way to alleviate symptoms of seasonal allergies while working with your body’s natural defenses and boosting immunity. Our therapies can also be updated with an antihistamine to address allergies.

Learn What Irritants Cause your Allergies

It might not be entirely possible to avoid an allergen, depending on the source, but there are steps you can take to limit your exposure to these things. That is why it is essential to know what the cause of your seasonal allergies is. This can be done through a simple allergy test performed at your doctor’s office. Natural sources of irritants are pollen from grasses, trees, and weeds, which are in bloom starting as early as spring and lasting through fall depending on the local foliage. During spring and summer tree and grass pollen is most present in the evening while in late summer and early fall, during ragweed season, allergen levels are highest in the morning. Certain molds also grow more quickly in the heat and humidity and can also be considered a seasonal allergy.

How Does IV Therapy Help Alleviate Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies?

When the body has detected an allergen in the air it tries to protect itself by flushing the irritant out of the body. This manifests as a runny nose and watery eyes, which can cause dehydration if those lost fluids are not replaced. Drip IV’s Immunity blend formula comes with a 1-liter saline solution to replace those lost fluids and electrolytes that are necessary for the body to regain homeostasis. Seasonal allergies and irritants create inflammation in the body, which results in the stuffy nose and redness we associate with allergies. The immunity blend contains essential minerals and vitamins that contain anti-inflammatory properties. Below we will examine each ingredient to demonstrate how it can help alleviate symptoms of seasonal allergies.

B12

Seasonal allergies put the body into a state of stress as it tries to fight off the irritants that are causing inflammation. Stress uses up the body’s internal supply for vitamin B, which can further exacerbate symptoms. Studies on B12 have suggested that it can reduce allergy symptoms, specifically sneezing, congestion, and runny noses.

B Complex

B complex, specifically B6, which is also known as folate, helps regulate inflammation to suppress allergy symptoms and decrease the severity of an allergy attack. In one study, it was shown to lessen throat constriction and reduce mucus buildup in the nose. The B complex as a whole helps to boost the immune system during a time of stress.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a magic mineral that is a natural antihistamine and helps relieve contracted airways to the lungs. Its calming effect relaxes the body and the bronchial tube and lowers histamine release. By reducing the histamine levels in the body, magnesium can help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Selenium

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from stress and can help regulate inflammation in the body. Reducing the inflammation stops the body’s natural reaction to flush out the irritants through your eyes and nose and reduces the symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.

Vitamin C

Vitamin c is especially potent for allergy symptom relief, and that’s why we include it in the Immunity Blend treatment. It is another natural antihistamine, and it can stop the body from releasing histamine and make it break down faster in the body once it is already released. One study showed that IV treatment with high-dose vitamin C significantly reduces allergy-related symptoms.

Saline

Allergy symptoms can dehydrate the body through fluids lost as the body tries to flush out irritants that trigger a reaction. As the body dehydrates, histamine creation increases in an attempt to hold on to the remaining water supplies in the body. This triggers allergy symptoms as the body tries to regain homeostasis. Drinking water can be useful, but for instant results, IV fluids are injected directly into the bloodstream bypassing the digestion system for a 100% absorption rate.

Zinc

Zinc is also beneficial for relieving symptoms of seasonal allergies because it keeps the immune system healthy. It also has an antidepressant effect on people and helps regulate stress. As stated before, any additional stress makes allergy symptoms worse.

Additional Supplements

All of Drip IV’s treatments can be customized to provide additional immunity support. Benadryl can be added to the Immunity Drip formula, or any of our treatments, for an extra boost and immediate relief from symptoms. Benadryl is an antihistamine and commonly used to alleviate symptoms of seasonal allergies. This medication is useful because it blocks the synthesis of histamine. Drip IV’s delivery method means that relief is instantaneous for those high pollen count days.

The Immunity Drip treatment from Drip IV is an effective and convenient way to get immediate relief from seasonal allergy symptoms. The unique blend made up of vitamins and minerals is a natural way to boost the immune system and trigger the body’s natural response to protect itself. For an additional boost for immediate relief and some relaxation, Benadryl can be added to any treatment. All our treatments are designed to rehydrate the body, flush allergens out of the system, and alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies.
