With Covid-19 running rampant around East Texas once again, I noticed that discussion in a local facebook group turned to where you can IV infusions to improve immunity.

In August, I came down with it and battled the infection at home for three weeks, before finally deciding that my health wasn’t improving and that it was time to seek treatment. I visited a local emergency room and they ran a complete work up on me to confirm that I wasn’t developing covid pneumonia, which was my fear.

Thankfully, all of my blood work and scans came back normal. I did have Covid-19, but I was on the mend and with the help of an IV drip at the end of my visit, I began to bounce back fast.

The nurse that connected me to the IV explained that I was getting a “banana bag.” This is a slang term for a combination of thiamine, folate, magnesium sulfate and multivitamins in a saline solution, that is a bright yellow color.

I was pretty amazed at how great I felt the next day, and now I’m seeing more and more people choosing to seek IV cocktail infusions to help themselves bounce back from various things. Some use them for hangovers and others to quickly begin feeling better after recovering with Covid-19.

So now you’re wondering like I did, ‘where can I get one of these treatments?’ Well you’ve got lots of options in Tyler. From a recent request for information in Tyler’s Rants, Raves and Recommendations facebook group, I found seven that received a nod from members in the group.
