Enhance immunity

The aim of immune boosting is to ensure that specific vitamins and nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream so that the active ingredients are fully absorbed. In this way, the treatments restore the body's balance, strengthen the immune system and protect against infections and diseases.

What problems can be traced back to a weakened immune system?

Our immunity has a key role in protecting and sustaining our health. The immune system is a complex network based on the cooperation of special immune cells, tissues and organs. When pathogens – bacteria, viruses or fungi attack and enter the human body, a well-regulated defense mechanism activates in order to fight against the manifestation of the actual diseases.

The immune system is controlled by 7 organs (thymus, spleen, bone marrow, liver, lymph nodes and tonsils), through which the information about the current state of our body is channeled through. This process is assisted by the hormonal system, the lymphatic cells and neurons, and also by the 5 sense organs. The immune system has its own circulatory pathways provided by the lymphatic vessels which can reach all of our organs and tissues. The most important parts include white blood cells, special intravascular proteins and immunoglobulins and also some messenger molecules. Thanks to the cellular communication mechanisms and cooperation, these elements can form the perfect defensive immunity.

If the immune system is obstructed, different conditions can be formed like infections, allergies, autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue or even gastrointestinal- and dermatologic problems.

Allergy is the consequence of the inadequate hyperactivity of the immune system. The body creates an immune response against harmless matters too, beside the actual dangerous substances. Furthermore, this overprotection is the reason why asthma and autoimmune diseases (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome; sclerosis multiplex; Hashimoto thyreoiditis, T1 diabetes, etc.) develop.

The tendency of having weakened immunity and immunodeficiency is usually inherited, but the manifestation is multifactorial. Poor diet choices, chronic stress, sedentary lifestyle are also important factors which are increased by harmful environmental impacts like pollution and the overuse of chemicals. 

The immune-boosting process is based on a healthy diet because the gastrointestinal tract has the most important role in absorbing and utilizing vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients. A healthy gut also has a strong, well-balanced barrier function, keeping out bacteria, viruses and even preventing fungal infections. If we get the proper amount of nutrition, it has a long, strengthening effect on the immune system, restoring the weakened body.

Infusion therapy packages

During the medical consultation our specialists create a completely personalized IV therapy plan according to the patient’s current health problems and symptoms. The most important vitamins and minerals will be chosen and included based on the patient’s lab results. The greatest benefit of IV therapy is that the body can get the most important nutrients and active agents all at once in a great and effective dose as soon as the infusion gets directly into the bloodstream. This method avoids the gastrointestinal system therefore the active substances can be absorbed completely. This therapy helps to restore homeostasis, improve the immune system and provides protection against other infections and diseases too.
