From cutting-edge IV therapy to expert nutritional and lifestyle recommendations, learn more about how The Houstonian Club ensures a strong defense against the elements this winter.
Immunity and Ultra Immunity IV Therapies at The Covery
Offered at The Covery, these IV therapies give a boost to the immune system with one liter of electrolyte fluid, which is extremely hydrating to the body and includes the core vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that aid the immune system in fighting off infections or viruses: Vitamin C, B-Complex, Zinc and N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC).
For those seeking even more immunity support, The Ultra Immunity IV drip features the items listed above and seven other elements, including lysine, glutathione, B12, arginine, taurine, glutamine, and alpha lipoic acid. It is a powerful combination that helps stimulate the body's natural defense system.
Get a Tri-Immune Boost at The Covery
For those short on time, The Covery also offers an intramuscular injection called the Tri-Immune Boost, which consists of Vitamin C, Zinc, and one of the most potent antioxidants, glutathione. It provides the same immunity-boosting power as the IV drips in a quick shot.
According to Taylor Decell, BSN, RN, Manager and Lead Nurse of The Covery by The Houstonian Club, prevention is critical. She recommends immunity therapy before or after travel and when clients know they have been exposed to people who are sick. She also advises them for clients who feel like they might be getting sick or are recovering from an illness.
Support Immunity Naturally with Nutrition and Lifestyle Choices
Denise Hernandez, Registered Dietitian, M.S., L.D. at The Houstonian Club offers insight into supporting the immune system with a healthy lifestyle. Hernandez emphasizes the importance of specific nutrients as our allies in fortifying the body's natural defenses. Vitamins C, D, and E, selenium, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids are essential in a healthy immune system. Not only does having adequate amounts of these nutrients in the diet decrease the risk of infection once exposed, but they also allow the immune system to function at its best when there is an infection.
Relax on a Soothing Sound Journey
The Houstonian Club offers a comprehensive range of asana and meditation classes that support all physical activity levels. While some classes focus on the yoga postures with athletic practices, the most popular classes are the more physically mild ones, with more time devoted to breathwork and meditation. Their newest offering, Sound Journey, uses the sound and vibration of alchemy bowls to soothe the participants' nervous systems' during a meditative 15 to 45-minute session. These classes speak to the power of being present - even for just a few moments during full days - and the simple yet effective methods of meditation and mindfulness as stress relief.
