The ‘Tripledemic’ and Staying Healthy Over the Holidays

Immune System Therapy Tampa FL

Maintaining your health over the winter holidays is always challenging. The change in weather brings with it a surge in infectious illnesses, while the hustle and bustle of the holidays disrupt healthy routines. Then there’s the added stress that weakens our immune systems. Is it time to consider Immune System Therapy in Tampa, FL? Fueling that stress is the likelihood that if you really need to see a healthcare professional, their availability is reduced due to scaled-back holiday hours. It’s likely that our collective immunity is down due to increased forced vaccination, staying home for two years, and overdoing it with cleaning products. This year is shaping up to be particularly challenging given the potential threat of a highly anticipated “Tripledemic” (a mass media sensationalization for what is described above)— flu, coronavirus, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) — not to mention the growing concern over strep A infections both here …

She has been living with migraines since she experienced her first episode in a rehearsal room for a Broadway show nearly 25 years ago.

Just recently, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported that the red tide organism — Karenia brevis — was measured at bloom concentrations in southwest Florida. And in early October, it was recorded at background levels in northwest Florida. Red tide blooms are not an uncommon sight for those of us who reside in Tampa. Such blooms occurred over the course of 14 months in 2017-2018 and were apparent in 17 months in 2005-2006.

And it’s not a recent phenomenon. Written descriptions of red …
