With the onset of fall comes a lot of lovely things — colorful leaves, crackling fireplaces and hot cider.  But with fall also comes flu season, which will last all the way ’til spring.  Read on to find out how to protect yourself this season.

Fight the Flu at Infusion Express

IV therapy at Infusion Express can help you boost your immune system to fight off the flu.

Consider a Flu Shot

The Centers for Disease Control recommend the flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older, including pregnant and breastfeeding women.  The flu vaccine, which is available in both a weakened live virus nasal mist and standard inactivated virus shot, protects against the three main flu strains of the season.  Getting the flu shot early will protect you through the entirety of the season.  Talk with your health care provider about whether the flu shot is right for you.

Keep Your Environment Healthy

Simply staying away from sick people and engaging in standard hygienic behaviors can go a long way to preventing the flu.  Wash your hands with hot, soapy water throughout the day, and avoid being near others who are suffering from the flu or a cold.  On the flip side, if you do get sick, do your friends and coworkers a favor and stay home and rest — you’ll recover faster and keep others from getting sick.

Boost Your Immune System

One of the most effective ways to boost your immune system is to eat a balanced diet full of vitamins and nutrients.  Giving your body the tools it needs to defend itself is key to preventing the flu.

If you feel like your immune system could use a bigger boost, you could even consider a Myers’ Cocktail or hydration therapy at Infusion Express.  These treatments offer the building blocks your body needs to build a healthy immune system in the quickest way possible — directly to the bloodstream where your body can put them to work.

IV Therapy at Infusion Express

IV therapy can promise better health and improved quality of life, but at Infusion Express we take it a step further.  We want you to enjoy the time you spend receiving your IV infusion.

At Infusion Express, you’ll experience zero wait time and a private room for your treatment.  While you receive it, you can watch HDTV, play games on our iPads, read a book on our eReaders, or simply relax (or even nap) in one of our comfortable reclining seats.

If you’re ready to start feeling better ASAP, give us a call at our Lee’s Summit location at 816-272-0174 or our Overland Park office at 913-948-2020, and be sure to check us out on facebook or twitter!

race-running-hydration-therapyWith the snow finally gone and spring ramping up into summer, many people are preparing for (or already running!) summer races.  Whether you stick to 5Ks or warrior your way through marathons, hydration is key to making it to the finish line.
Why Hydration is Important
You probably already know that our bodies are 75 percent water, so it should come as know surprise that water is vital to helping our bodies perform properly.
Water is key to helping our bodies with the following functions:
  • Transforming food to energy
  • Transporting nutrients to body tissues
  • Regulating body temperature
  • Keeping joints well-lubricated
All those sound pretty important for races, don’t they?
Get Hydrated for Races with IV Hydration Therapy
Intravenous hydration therapy can get you the water and nutrients your body needs to perform at its highest level without the hassle of water-logging your stomach or guzzling sports drinks.
At Infusion Express, we provide the right mix of good old H2O and electrolytes to get your body primed for competition.
Recover from Races with IV Hydration Therapy
Just as we can help you prep for a race, we can also help you recover from a race already run.  Ideally you’d be able to take a week off and relax to let your body recover from a race, but we live in the real world.  You need to be back on your feet and going strong again fast, and IV Hydration Therapy helps you do just that.
IV Hydration Therapy at Infusion Express
At Infusion Express, we offer IV therapy in private rooms with no wait. But that’s not all.  We want your experience to be not only pleasant, but fun and relaxing!  
That’s why we offer HDTVs, iPads loaded with games, and eReaders primed with bestsellers.  You can even schedule a yoga session, massage or nutrition session to coincide with your therapy to get the most out of your experience at Infusion Express.

Did you know there’s a quickly administered and fast-working treatment for conditions ranging from migraines and fatigue, depression and anxiety to chronic pain, asthma and seasonal allergies?

Skip the pills – come in for an infusion.

Try a Myers’ Cocktail

This near cure-all is known as the Myers’ Cocktail.  It’s an intravenous infusion of vitamins and minerals designed to help your body operate at optimum levels. Did we mention there’s a special hangover formula?

What’s in a Myers’ Cocktail?

A Myers’ Cocktail includes magnesium, calcium, selenium, B vitamins, vitamin C and more — many of the same ingredients you’d find in your daily multivitamin.  The difference is that, because a Myers’ Cocktail is an IV treatment, you get more of the vitamins and minerals into your system faster, and your body is better able to use more of them.

Is a Myers’ Cocktail safe?

Absolutely!  These are common and necessary vitamins and minerals that your body needs to operate efficiently.  The most common side effects from the Myers’ Cocktail are a slight flush in the chest, face or legs (due to increased blood flow, which is a good thing!) and a slight metallic taste due to minerals passing through the circulatory system of the palate. Don’t worry – it won’t last long.

Who would benefit from a Myers’ Cocktail?

The great thing about the Myers’ Cocktail is that so many different people can benefit from it.  Whether your a harried and stressed out parent, a corporate executive under a lot of pressure, or a student dealing with a huge load of school work or finals week, anyone whose immune system needs a boost can benefit.

Have we mentioned celebrities dig these too?

The treatment is pretty quick and it can help anyone with any of the following conditions:

  • Asthma
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Common cold or other viral infections
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Muscle spasms
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Eczema
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Narcotic withdrawal

The Myers’ Cocktail at Infusion Express

The promise of better health and quality of life is what the Myers’ Cocktail offers, but at Infusion Express we take it a step further.  We want you to enjoy the time you spend receiving your IV infusion.

At Infusion Express, you’ll experience little to no wait time and comfortable area for your treatment.  While you receive it, you can watch HDTV, play games on our iPads, read a book on our eReaders, or even schedule a yoga session or massage in conjunction with your treatment. Our spa-like clinic offers everything you need to relax.

Have you ever had a nasty hangover when you need to be at your best at work?  Or perhaps you’ve come back from vacation needing an elixir to get your focus back.
Maybe you know what it’s like to need help recovering after a long weekend playing sports in the heat.
Whatever the reason, the cure is hydration — and we can help at Infusion Express!

What is Hydration Therapy?

hydration-iv-therapyHydration Therapy involves intravenous injection of fluids into your system to quickly and immediately alleviate dehydration caused by illness, heat, exhaustion or otherwise.

What are the Benefits of Hydration Therapy?

Quickly trying to rehydrate yourself with water can lead to a condition called hyponatremia, or water intoxication, which can cause symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, headache, confusion, fatigue, loss of appetite, irritability, muscle weakness, seizures or even coma.

Not what you want when you’re trying to feel better!

Hydration Therapy safely rehydrates you using the proper balance of water and electrolytes to keep your body in balance.  You don’t have to worry about overdoing it — not to mention put up with the discomfort of drinking copious amounts of water.

All you have to do is sit back, relax, and let the fluids get your body back into balance.
