Winter in Denver offers us the chance to slow down and enjoy fun with friends and family outdoors, but the shift in season is often accompanied by an “f-word”—the flu! Denver Holistic Medicine offers patients a natural and effective alternative to the flu shot this season in the form of immunity-boosting injections. A highly effective, preventative approach to tackling lowered immunity and maintaining optimal health during this year’s flu season is within reach. Accompanied by a healthy lifestyle, immunity-boosting injections provide benefits ranging from an increase in mood and overall brain function (thanks to the high potency Vitamin B complex).
Our immunity-boosting injections are comprised of four potent vitamins and antioxidants, including:
Vitamin C—this important antioxidant boosts immunity by helping white blood cells function more efficiently and can strengthen the body’s natural defenses, protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals.
B12—this essential vitamin provides a multitude of health benefits, including an increase in positive mood, energy levels, and the luster of hair, skin, and nails, as well as improved cognition due to its ability to prevent brain atrophy and memory loss. It is especially crucial for those eating a plant- or whole foods- based diet to supplement their nutrition plans with B12.
B6—your body can’t produce this vitamin naturally, so it must be intentionally obtained through diet or supplements, including injections, which deliver an immediate, long-lasting boost of B6. In addition to reducing symptoms of depression, a boost of B6 improves the body’s metabolism, helping it to function more efficiently and energetically throughout the day.
Glutathione--a powerful antioxidant, Glutathione levels decrease as we age and are exposed to toxins and stress. Boosting glutathione may provide many health benefits, including reduction of oxidative stress.
One reason we advocate for and offer vitamin- and antioxidant-rich injections to our patients is our commitment to providing you with a science-based, holistic alternative to traditional flu shots. In addition to our immunity-boosting injection, Dr. Sturm is experienced in administering a wide variety of safe, long-lasting therapeutic injections and will tailor a plan specific to your health needs and goals. Plus, injection therapy typically takes only between five to ten minutes. That way, you can get back to the fun, family, and fellowship the holiday spirit is meant to bring!
