With millions of Americans and people worldwide affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s especially important to stay healthy and infection-free this flu and cold season. Washing your hands frequently, getting plenty of sleep, and eating a healthy diet can help. But did you know there’s something else you can do to boost your immunity this fall?
At Peak Physical Medicine, our team of providers is dedicated to helping you stay healthy this flu and cold season and all year long. We offer IV therapy to our patients in Visalia, California, as a way to help you boost your immune system and keep you feeling well.
Oral supplements must pass through your digestive system and enter your bloodstream at a reduced dose to take effect. IV therapy, on the other hand, is a fast and easy way to get the full effects of the nutrients, minerals, and hydration — without losing some to the digestive process or having to wait.

IV therapy gives your immune system a boost!
With cold and flu season almost here and the high positivity rate of COVID-19 cases in our county, it’s essential to do everything you can do to boost your immunity and overall wellness. To fight off infection and illness, it’s important to give your body the hydration, nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs.
Though eating a healthy diet is an important start, it can be challenging — sometimes impossible for those with certain medical conditions — to consume everything needed for optimal wellness. Supplements aren’t always effective, and they lose potency as they travel through your digestive system.
The good news is that IV therapy quickly and safely gives you the hydration, minerals, vitamins, and nutrients needed to strengthen your immune system and improve your physical wellness. What’s more? Feeling healthy helps reduce your stress levels, giving your immunity an added boost and further reducing your risk of getting sick.
IV therapy helps your skin and muscles
Every day, unstable atoms called free radicals attack your body, causing damage to your body on a cellular level. Free radicals are linked to disease and aging, and they negatively impact your skin and muscles.
IV therapy at Peak Physical Medicine can help. The antioxidants in your infusion play a vital role in fighting free radicals, repairing the damage to your cells, and reducing inflammation. IV therapies also provide support to your body’s metabolic process, increasing your energy levels and noticeably improving damaged muscles and skin.
Your performance will improve with IV therapy
The careful balance and blend of nutrients and minerals in IV therapies helps improve your endurance and performance — on and off the field — by helping you feel more energized and less tired. In other words? You’ll be at your best, in the bedroom, boardroom, or on the field.
In addition, IV therapies help speed your body’s natural healing process after exertion. This means you’ll recover faster after physical performance.
Destroy toxins with IV therapy
Did you know you’re surrounded by toxins? From the foods we eat to the beverages we drink to the air we breathe, toxins are everywhere.
As you ingest toxins, they build up in your system over time and are stored in your liver. Toxic build-up leads to feelings of fatigue and depression and makes you more susceptible to illness and viruses. It can also sometimes affect your weight.
By getting IV therapy at Peak Physical Medicine, your body receives the key nutrients and fluids it needs to detoxify your system and help you stay healthy and well.
IV therapy can aid weight loss
There’s no doubt that you need to eat healthy, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep to lose unwanted pounds and maintain a healthy weight. IV therapies support the weight-loss process by delivering the hydration, minerals, and nutrients needed to keep your energy levels up and help improve your sleep.
With boosted energy, you’ll be able to work out harder and longer, and your metabolism will operate at a higher lever. The result? You burn more calories and shed pounds faster.
Getting good sleep is essential for weight loss. Fortunately, the wellness benefits you get from IV therapy help you sleep better at night, which helps you slim down more quickly.
The compassionate care team at Peak Physical Medicine customizes your IV therapy infusions to help meet your unique needs and goals. If you’re ready to learn more, contact our Visalia office, or request an appointment online today!
