With the pandemic ongoing and “flu season” underway, talk of a potential “twindemic” has intensified. While some will opt for flu shots, others seek natural immunity boosters to help maintain resilience through the late fall and winter months – therapies like those we blogged about earlier this year.
Now seems a good time to share those again, starting with the fact that the most important thing you can do to protect yourself against the flu and colds is to practice good hygiene,
including lots of handwashing – especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after you’ve coughed, sneezed, or blown your nose.
Similarly, cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and avoid touching your eyes or mouth with unwashed hands. And regularly disinfect surfaces that you touch a lot, such as your phone or other mobile device.
Additional support comes from eating healthfully and getting plenty of sleep each night, so your body has the resources it needs to fight off pathogens.

Many integrative therapies can be just as helpful for prevention as they are for treating illness. For instance, thymic peptide injections can give your immune system a boost, as the thymus gland plays a crucial role in regulating your immune system and stimulating the immune response. Injecting peptides can heighten the effect.
Another great immune booster is IV drip therapy. When nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream in this way, your body can absorb and assimilate them more readily. We have a substantial menu of drip therapies we can provide here in our West Los Angeles office, but two of the best we have for strengthening immunity are vitamin C + minerals and glutathione.
We can even design custom IV nutrient cocktails to match your individual needs.
Yet another great preventive therapy is medical grade ozone. Not only does it support good immune function; it also increases antioxidant protection. And since it supports mitochondrial function and increases oxygen uptake by your cells, you can get a real energy boost from it, as well.
And these are just a few of the more popular options Dr. Joe regularly offers his patients. Contact us today to set your first appointment – and take advantage of our new patient special: Book your initial visit before December 31st, and you’ll get 50% off your first visit cost.
Even better? Add on an IV drip therapy package, and we’ll apply your first visit fee toward that package. That’s right: You’ll pay NOTHING for your first visit.
