Immune Optimization Q & A
How does the immune system work to fight off disease?
Your immune system stands ready to react if it identifies a substance as potentially dangerous. When triggered, it quickly creates antibodies to fight off infection, and those antibodies remain in place for the rest of your life, ready to spring into action if you ever encounter that specific antigen in the future.
Vaccines help create a strong immune system by giving your body a chance to “train” for a real infection by introducing a weak version of specific antigens. Over time, however, multiple factors can weaken your immune response, leaving you at risk of harm.
What are some immune optimization treatments?
One treatment that can help boost your natural immune function is IV nutrition therapy. This approach delivers a high volume of top-quality nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Ingredients can include vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione.
A significant part of your immune function occurs in the gut, and IV nutrition therapy helps remove the harmful toxins that can interfere with healthy immune function. This approach also improves hydration, which is essential in transporting oxygen throughout the body and preventing toxin accumulation.
Peptide therapy can also help support a healthy immune system. Studies show that certain types of peptide therapy can enhance your body’s response to viral vaccines. Boosted antibody creation, enhanced cellular repair, and even suppression of tumor growth are all possible.
Finally, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help restore optimal balance for men and women with hormonal imbalance. That goes a long way toward supporting your natural immune function and preventing disease.
How do I know if I need immune optimization?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Grafton can order blood testing to gain insight into how your body functions. That information, combined with a discussion of any symptoms you have and your overall energy levels, can help him craft an immune optimization program just for you.
There’s never a wrong time to give your immune system the support it needs to thrive. That said, as we continue to navigate the uncertainties of a global pandemic, immune optimization has never seemed more important.
