At The Good Samaritan Medical center, we have over 25 years of experience in helping our patients build up a strong Immune system. Thanks to the help of alternative and conventional treatments we can do this without any negative side effects.
The immune system is essential for our protection, against bacteria, viruses and different pathogens, which make us susceptible to diseases. Our first line of defense is the skin and the second and third lines is the adaptive and innate immune system. The immune system has the ability to differentiate between body cells and unusual organisms, which means that if an antigen is detected by the immune system, it will attack it immediately. The is why in this season that a strange and new virus is affecting humans, it is of utmost importance to strengthen our immune system to help it defend and keep us healthy.
Treatments for the Immune system
Ozone therapy is natural treatment that maintains a healthy well-being, since it prevents and helps to make diseases less aggressive, reduces the threat, shortens the evolution time, symptoms are milder and without negative side effects.
Ozone has the ability to oxygenate; it increases the transport of oxygen to the tissues by red blood cells, that is, it improves peripheral oxygenation and therefore activates the signals that activate defense systems, strengthens the immune system, has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral capacity and is a germicidal potential .
IV Therapy. There are epidemiological data where the presence of nutritional deficits is related to immune imbalances and increased risk of infections. It is true that maintaining a balanced diet helps us keep vitamins and minerals in balance, but factors such as stress, anxiety, fear, contamination, causes or immune system to weaken. In the majority of the times any our diet doesn’t provide us with the necessary minerals and vitamins to keep a healthy immune system. That is why we resort to intravenous therapy of essential vitamins and minerals for the body.
For example, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), is a water-soluble antioxidant that increases the production of extracellular collagen that is important for the proper function of immune cells.
All of our therapies are personalized depending on the patients uniqueness.
