We've all been there - sore throat, cough, itchy eyes. You try to push through. You have work, class, kids to care for, and the latter may have even brought it home to you. Then it happens. You can't get up. You have a fever. The flu has a hold on you.

As of February 2, infection rates for the 2017-2018 flu season were still rising, higher than those in any year since 2009, when the swine flu was pandemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This year’s outbreak began in Louisiana and Mississippi, then spread to California and up the West Coast. The CDC believes it has peaked here; California reported four times as many people hospitalized with flu as were seen three years ago. 

Prevention is always the best measure. If you already have the flu, in addition to the meds your doctor prescribes, you can further nourish your body to speed your recovery time. IV Infusion Therapy is one of the best ways to immediately boost your body's immune system, delivering vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream. We do them right here in the office. We can usually schedule you in for therapy the same day you call. 

Take action for your health and the health of those around you. Make sure to stay home if you have a temperature. Additionally, you can help protect yourself by washing your hands with soap and warm water, avoiding hand sanitizers, and do not eat with your hands or rub your eyes or nose before washing your hands. This will help prevent transmission of the virus. Call your doctor as soon as your symptoms arise, or better yet, boost your immune system with an IV.
