Your immune system protects your body from infectious germs. Through highly complex and adaptive processes, a healthy immune system is always at work, protecting you from infections by identifying and destroying harmful microorganisms. Your immune system also helps you build immunity so that when you encounter certain invading germs again, you can fight them faster the next time around, often without even getting sick at all.
Immunosuppression is the state in which you immune system is not functioning as well as it should. Immunosuppression can be caused by certain chronic diseases but can also be induced by medications that suppress the immune system. Some medical procedures, such as Chemotherapy, can also cause immunosuppression.
At the Dove Clinic we use various intravenous regimes, largely based around intravenous vitamin C and minerals. A combination of Vitamin C and minerals via an IV infusion contributes to healthy immune function and supports energy levels. Whether you are prone to catching colds or flu on a regular basis or you are immunosuppressed, please contact our reception if you would like to receive more information.

In addition to the above we will frequently prescribe oral nutritional support i.e. mineral replacements such as magnesium, selenium, zinc and the use of vitamins, namely vitamin C, vitamin A, Vitamin B and Vitamin D.
