IV Therapy for Autoimmune Diseases

March 31, 2020 Drip IV Therapy

Drip IV’s Autoimmune Drip blend is specially formulated to support the body’s natural defenses and boost the immune system for those suffering from an autoimmune disorder. With an autoimmune disease, the immune system malfunctions and starts attacking the body’s healthy cells and tissue. According to the National Institutes of Health, up to 23.5 million Americans suffer from an autoimmune disorder. That is almost 10% of the US population suffering from debilitating symptoms. There are more than 100 different types of autoimmune diseases. Some of the most common are rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Celiac disease, Graves’ disease, Type 1 diabetes, and vitiligo. These various diseases have different symptoms and treatment plans, but they do have one major thing in common; the body needs additional help to stay healthy.

Symptoms of Autoimmune Diseases

While symptoms can vary significantly based on the type of disease affecting your body, the early signs are very similar. Most people suffer from fatigue, skin rashes, low-grade fever as the body tries to defend itself, sore muscles, trouble concentrating, numbness of the hands and feet, and hair loss. These early warning symptoms are a sign that you should contact your primary healthcare physician for further testing. The sooner you are aware of an autoimmune disease, the better you can manage symptoms and quality of life.

How IV Therapy can Help Autoimmune Diseases

While there is no magic cure for autoimmune diseases, there are ways of boosting the immune system to reduce the severity of symptoms and possibly prevent an outbreak or flare-up. Drip IV’s Autoimmune Drip formula works alongside your other doctor approved treatments for whole-body immunity support.

This treatment has a 100% absorption rate by the body because it bypassed the digestive system and delivered directly to the cells. This is important because vitamins and supplements taken orally are not as potent as Drip IV’s methods. Below we will examine the vitamins and minerals that go into each blend of Autoimmune Drip and how they help to boost the immune system.

Vitamin B12

B12 plays a vital role in the body, helping white blood cell production, which is essential for a properly functioning immune system. Certain autoimmune diseases stop the body from absorbing vitamin B12 in the stomach, which can further complicate health issues. Luckily, because IV infusions bypass the stomach, the body can absorb the vitamins it needs.

Glutathione

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is important in minimizing damage to the body from oxidative stress. Glutathione is especially important for those suffering from autoimmune diseases because it protects cells from inflammation, boosts the immune system, and supports the healing of the stomach lining and the blood-brain barrier. An IV infusion of glutathione is the most effective method for increasing levels stored in the body.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is also known to be a potent antioxidant and supports the body by playing a role in cellular functions. By helping the immune system, it calms the body’s natural response so the body can destress. Stress can exacerbate autoimmune symptoms and make it more challenging for the body to defend itself from other external factors, like viruses. In lab studies, IV therapy of vitamin C for autoimmune diseases has shown effective in helping to manage symptoms.

L-glutamine

L- glutamine also supports the health of the stomach lining and can be especially helpful for those suffering from leaky gut or other stomach related autoimmune diseases. Having adequate levels of L-glutamine can help heal the gut, improve brain health, and support muscle repair. It is an essential amino acid in maintaining optimal health for those suffering from autoimmune diseases.

Magnesium

Micronutrient deficiencies in the body, specifically magnesium, selenium, and zinc, are linked to several autoimmune diseases. This is thought to be because all three of these nutrients help to regulate inflammation in the body. During periods of inflammation, the body is not absorbing all the nutrients it should be from food and supplements. Specifically, autoimmune thyroid disorders like Hashimoto’s disease can benefit significantly from additional magnesium supplements.

Selenium

Selenium is another helpful tool for managing inflammation because it is an essential trace mineral that has anti-inflammatory effects in the body. In a study published in 2019, it was demonstrated that an adequate quantity of selenium in the body could contribute to the management of complications of autoimmune diseases and even improved quality of life in patients with autoimmune diseases. IV treatments are so effective because it detours around the stomach for maximum absorption and potency. This mineral is also known for being particularly helpful with improper thyroid function.

Zinc

Zinc is the second most abundant metal in the body and is involved in cell division and growth, DNA and RNA transcription, and vitamin and mineral absorption. This is another mineral that deficiency is linked to autoimmune disorders; this is because it is essential in the production of white blood cells. White blood cells are the cells that make up the immune system! Since zinc is one of the 24 crucial minerals that the body cannot store or make, it is vital to supplement your intake. It has also been shown to be a helpful mineral for those suffering from leaky gut or other autoimmune disorders affecting the gut.
