World Asthma Day

World Asthma Day – Tuesday 3rd May 2022

World Asthma Day, organised by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), is held in May each year to raise awareness of asthma – a lung condition that affects an estimated 8 million people in the UK alone, and 300 million people worldwide 🌍

GINA has chosen ‘Closing Gaps in Asthma Care’ as the theme for the 2022 World Asthma Day.

There are a number of gaps in asthma care which require intervention in order to reduce preventable suffering as well as the costs incurred by treating uncontrolled asthma.

Triggers for asthma include: stress, infections, exercise, cold weather, pollution, allergies, and certain medicines such as ibuprofen. 

There is currently no cure for asthma, but it can be managed using ongoing treatments to help reduce symptoms and prevent potentially life-threatening asthma attacks. Such treatments can include:

💨 Inhalers for both relief / prevention
💊 Prescribed drugs in tablet, powder or syrup form
💉 Biologic therapies (Injections) for severe cases
🧑🏽‍⚕️ Bronchial thermoplasty surgery
💧 Complementary therapies, e.g. breathing exercises, dietary supplements


A June 2013 study published in Wiener klinische Wochenschrift – The Central European Journal of Medicine found that antioxidants, including vitamins A and E, could have a beneficial impact on those with asthma.

A small study published in the August 2014 issue of Free Radical Biology & Medicine found that when combined with Vitamin C and Selenium, a nasal spray of choline helped treat allergic airway disease in mice. Though studies done on people are still needed, taking Choline, a B Vitamin, may reduce the severity and frequency of asthma attacks, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. High doses (3 grams a day for adults) may be most effective, but you shouldn’t take them without talking to your doctor first. 

Get A Drip offer a range of Vitamin Drips & Booster Shots containing the above Vitamins. Our ever popular High Dose Vitamin C Drip contains betweem 6.25g and 25g of Vitamin C, while Selenium is available as an add on to most of the drips on our menu.

Hay Fever – How can Vitamins & Minerals help?

Hay Fever – How can Vitamins & Minerals help?

Spring has truly sprung now, but with it blooms the beginning of hay fever season…
Seasonal allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes and a blocked nose occur when your body releases histamine in response to an allergen – in this case, pollen. While antihistamine tablets can help curb these irritating symptoms, they can also cause unwanted side effects: most commonly drowsiness, as well as dryness of the eyes and mouth. No one wants to feel like a sleepy desert!

Luckily for us seasonal sufferers, there is a lot of anecdotal advice on supplements that could help aid hay fever relief. These supplements don’t cause any adverse side effects when used within recommended dosage ranges. In fact, they provide the body with an array of extra beneficial effects, supporting additional areas of your wellbeing such as sleep, energy levels, hair health, detoxification, and mood.

Vitamin C – A Natural Antihistamine

Vitamin C, otherwise known as Ascorbic Acid, can work as a natural antihistamine by effectively reducing the total amount of histamine your body produces:
Lower histamine levels = improved hay fever symptoms!
Vitamin C also contributes to the protection of your cells from oxidative stress caused by inflammation due to repeated coughing and sneezing. On top of that, this essential vitamin has a whole range of other key health benefits, contributing to:

  • Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • Increased iron absorption
  • Normal function of the immune system
  • Normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • Normal collagen formation

…and so much more, especially in higher doses!

Get A Drip offers intravenous Vitamin C included in our MultiVit Drip, Immunity Drip, Detox and Double Detox Drips. You can even opt for additional doses of Vitamin C with any service as an IV Drip Extra!

Importantly, we also offer extra effective High Dose Vitamin C IV Drips, available in three different strengths.
