For maximal health and vitality, nourishment must be ‘transported’ to all of the 100 trillion cells in an individual’s body. If key vitamins and minerals cannot access body tissues, cell regulatory processes become corrupted and the affected patient’s constitutional health soon declines.

When the body has trouble absorbing proteins, fatty acids, or minerals through natural digestive processes, IV Nutritional therapy critically preserves cellular health. A number of other circumstances can be cited as appropriate for IV therapy. Consider the nutritional demands precipitated by a chronic stress condition, or a sustained medical illness. To rebound from a sustained stress interval or serious illness, patients require extra nutrition. IV sustenance also assists people who suffer from a food intolerance. The IV services provided here at the Natural Medicine Center can also benefit patients with lowered nutrient absorption secondary to prescription drugs. Did you know that ‘Legend’ (i.e.,prescription) drugs can block a patient’s uptake and proper utilization of calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, and biotin?

For all of the patient scenarios outlined above, consider embracing intravenous administration of nutrients to ensure that your body is getting what it needs.

Types of IV Therapy

There are a number of IV therapies designed to either treat specific conditions or just promote overall wellness. The following are some of the most common:

Myers’ Cocktail
This particular blend was developed in the 1970’s by Dr. John Myers at Johns Hopkins University. It has been used to treat a number of conditions such as asthma, congestive heart failure, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, chest pain, infections, depression, muscle spasms, hives, and dementia.

Glutathione Therapy
This substance acts principally on liver and brain tissues. Research suggests glutathione therapy can lead patients to an improved memory, while also helping to lower the risk for dementia conditions, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuropathy, and liver disease.

High Dose Vitamin C Therapy
Although this vitamin is commonly found in supplement form, an IV infusion will produce much higher serum concentrations of Vitamin C than that obtained after oral dosing. Vitamin C is used to fight both fibromyalgia chronic fatigue syndrome.  High dose injections of Vitamin C have also been found to boost the immune system and can help fight and prevent cancer. 

For more on the specific benefits and science behind High Dose Vitamin C injections please watch the video below:

Alpha Lipoic Acid
This compound assists patients suffering from diabetes. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) improves cellular insulin sensitivity and simultaneously lowers blood sugar levels.

Hydrogen Peroxide
Chemists refer to Hydrogen Peroxide (H
2O2) as a ‘reactive oxygen species’. H2O2 encourages the body to release single oxygen molecules into the bloodstream. Newly liberated O2 molecules are available to kill viruses, bacteria, cancer cells. A higher oxygen serum oxygen level also makes it easier for the liver and kidneys to remove toxins.

If you are suffering from the following:

  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Asthma
  • COPD Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
