Winter is Coming
Winter is coming.
A time when a variety of viruses, influenza and complications from the cold weather tax our immune systems.
There is a wealth of raw information available, including from the ever popular "Dr. Google". However, these sites often fail to recognize that differences in biology and underlying health conditions means their one size fits all approach is severely limited.
Our goal with this informational page is to provide some best practices from our physicians, while respecting your individual health concerns and goals.
Immune Boost Injection
Fall is here and back to school along with the cooler temperatures are bringing on the cold and flu symptoms.
We have some natural alternatives to treatment and prevention including our new Immune Boost Shots.
We repeat these homeopathic immune boosting shots throughout the winter months every four weeks to keep you healthy and reduce symptoms from any cold viruses that you may pick up.
Talk to us about supporting your immune system this winter or come in for your first Immune boosting treatment. The cost is $20 with your office visit or $30 as a stand alone shot.
Diet and Supplements
Supporting your body's innate ability to fight off infection always start with what you put into your body.
Choosing foods that support your healthy body, as well as avoiding foods and drinks that can compromise your immune system, is the best place to start.
Understanding and respecting your own diet and knowing where you might need supplement support is key to avoiding letting bugs take hold in your system.

Nutritional IV Therapy
Nutritional IV Therapy is a very powerful option for boosting patient's immune system. There are limitations to the amount of nutrients that can be comfortably absorbed through the human digestive track. Direct infusion into the blood stream allows for a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals to be absorbed.
The physicians at Specialty Natural Medicine are all trained in the benefit and administration of Nutritional IV Therapy. Myer's Cocktail provides a great mix of vitamins that help to boost your immune system. Our physicians can also boost the level of Vitamin C in the Myer's if you need some immediate extra support.

Consult with our Physicians
Remedies that work for one person may not work on another because biology can vary from person to person. For example, if someone is getting sick frequently, they may have an impaired immune response and require additional attention or they may have another coexisting condition making them more susceptible to cold or flu viruses (hepatitis, HIV, AIDS, vitamin deficiency).
Further, some symptoms can overlap with many diagnoses and need to be evaluated properly by a trained physician. Thankfully, the physicians at Specialty Natural Medicine recognize that and are here to help you find what works for you and tailor a plan that targets your specific needs.
