2017 Flu Season
If you live in the greater Seattle area, you probably know someone who is dealing with the flu. And it is a particularly nasty bug with flu related deaths this season being significantly high. Washington State has already surpassed the total number of flu deaths in 4 of the last 6 reported years, with a particularly high concentration in Pierce and Snohomish counties.
Put simply, this flu season should not be taken lightly.
One of the main principles of naturopathic medicine is prevention, and we love applying this principle to the bacteria and viruses that cause so much misery this time of year. There are the obvious preventative measures- washing hands, eating a clean nutrient rich diet, and avoiding exposure to sick people when possible.
We use herbs like echinacea and elderberry to stimulate the immune system. Engystol, a homeopathic, has been studied and shows antiviral activity in vitro (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2998502/).
There are nutrients that your body needs to efficiently battle viruses and bacteria, including the obvious ones like vitamin C and zinc, but there are also many others. We can utilize IV therapy to deliver high doses of nutrients to give your immune system an advantage against the bugs of the fall and winter.
Our "Mini Immune Support" boosting IV contains vitamin C, zinc, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, manganese, chromium, selenium, magnesium and calcium. We are offering it at a discounted price of $80* until February 28, 2017. You can add a shot of Engystol to the IV for $10 or get it alone as an injection for $15. And don’t worry, if you do get sick, we have plenty of treatments to help you get better quicker!
*$80 is cost for IV nutrients. Co-pay for office visits or office visit charges may still apply based on your insurance plan.
