Summer is here and for many of us that means summer vacations, going to the beach, hiking in the mountains and destination weekends. Things we have all been looking forward to through the long winter months.

If you are like most, as exciting as these trips and vacations are, the work leading up to them and afterwards is grueling, depleting and time consuming, all of which put our immune system at a disadvantage at exactly the moment we need it most, when we will be around a bevy of strangers. So, what do you do?


Vitamin C and other Nutrients

Your body constantly works to protect you from viral and bacterial infections. High doses of vitamins promote an improved immune response. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight off illness. Combined with other vitamins and minerals your immune system is ready to fight off anything you may encounter during your travels.

Hydration, Hydration, Hydration

Proper hydration is important for every cell to work at its best ability. The human body is composed of 60% water – a slight dip in hydration can cause problems in your system, including headaches, fatigue, and even shakiness and anxiety. It is very easy to get dehydrated, especially when flying or driving long distances.

Get Enough Sleep

Your body regenerates while you sleep. Healthy sleep helps the body remain healthy and stave off diseases, lack of sleep has an adverse effect on your immune system, making you susceptible to illness. Lack of sleep can be a result of not being hydrated enough, stress, sleeping in a new location – all of which you encounter when traveling.


The nutrients found in the foods you eat are your body’s source of fuel for maintaining overall health and wellbeing. Food is also medicine - focus on foods with the power to boost your immune system.

During the hectic time getting ready for a trip, and even while you are traveling and eating new foods, you may not be getting the nutrients you need. Also consider that only about 50 percent of the vitamins and minerals you consume orally make it into the bloodstream as they are limited by the digestive process.

IV Therapy and Vitamin Shots deliver these valuable nutrients directly to your blood, bypassing the digestive track and strengthening your cells to fight off sickness.

Acupuncture increases blood flow and helps support your body in absorbing and utilizing the nutrients from your diet and the IV Therapy and Vitamin Shots. In addition, Acupuncture is known to help lower stress, improve sleep and boost your immune system. There are certain points on your body that you can apply pressure when you feel like you are coming down with something, here are 3 Acupressure Points for Immune Strength.

Getting ready for your trip can drain you, however with a small amount of time, you can use IV Therapy and Acupuncture to add hydration and nutrients directly into your body to build your immune system, while combating stress and improving sleep, so you can fully enjoy your summer travel.
