Allergies are a common ailment, affecting millions of people worldwide— but allergies feel especially wicked here in the desert. Symptoms can range from mild to severe inconveniences. And when your life is hindered because of allergies, finding relief is a priority. That’s where IV therapy for allergies is helpful.
How IV Therapy Can Help Allergies
A popular option for combatting allergy-related symptoms is intravenous (IV) therapy. IV therapy involves administering fluids, vitamins, minerals, or medications directly into the bloodstream through a vein in the arm. While conventional allergy treatments remain the first line of defense for most sufferers, many people may find relief with IV therapy. And since those nutrients are being administered directly into the bloodstream, most people feel relief immediately.
In this blog, we’ll explore how IV therapy can support allergy symptoms, provide relief, and promote overall well-being.
Hydration and Electrolyte Balance
Allergies can lead to dehydration, especially in cases where symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, or excessive sweating. Dehydration can exacerbate allergy symptoms and hinder the body’s ability to recover. IV therapy can quickly replenish fluids and electrolytes in the body, ensuring proper hydration and helping to alleviate symptoms. By maintaining a proper balance of electrolytes, IV therapy can also support the immune system and aid in overall recovery.
Vitamin and Mineral Supplementation
IV therapy can also provide targeted supplementation of vitamins and minerals that may help alleviate allergy symptoms. For instance, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce inflammation in the body, a common issue for allergy sufferers. Magnesium has been shown to support lung function and may help alleviate symptoms like wheezing and shortness of breath.
Enhanced Immune System Function
The immune system plays a vital role in allergies, as it is responsible for the body’s overreaction to allergens. By supporting overall immune system function, IV therapy may help alleviate some allergy symptoms. For example, administering certain nutrients like vitamin C, zinc, and selenium through IV therapy can support a healthy immune system.

One of the advantages of IV therapy is its ability to be customized to each individual’s needs.

What We Recommend — The Myers Cocktail
If you are looking to IV therapy for relief from allergy symptoms, we recommend the Renew IV therapy treatment, or more commonly known as The Myers Cocktail. This powerful cocktail consists of a blend of essential vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C,1 liter Lactated Ringers IV fluid, B12, B complex, magnesium, zinc, and glutathione.
One of the key reasons Myers’ Cocktail IV therapy is able to alleviate allergy symptoms is its high concentration of vitamin C. This potent antioxidant has been shown to support immune system function and combat inflammation, which can be beneficial for allergy sufferers.
Studies have suggested that vitamin C may help stabilize mast cells, the immune system cells responsible for releasing histamine during an allergic reaction. By preventing excessive histamine release, vitamin C may help reduce allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and nasal congestion.
In addition to vitamin C, the B vitamins found in Myers’ Cocktail are known to play a vital role in maintaining a healthy immune system. B vitamins can help regulate inflammation and improve energy levels, which can be beneficial for those struggling with fatigue due to allergies.
Magnesium, another key component of the Myers’ Cocktail, aids in the function of over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Some of those functions are related to the immune system and controlling inflammation.
As mentioned before, the direct intravenous delivery of nutrients bypasses the digestive system— allowing for faster and more efficient absorption. This can be particularly helpful for individuals with allergies who may have compromised nutrient absorption due to gastrointestinal issues such as inflammation, leaky gut, or food sensitivities.
