We recognize that vitamins, mineral, amino acids and other nutrients when given intravenously circumvent the uncertainly of absorption in the gastrointestinal tract and delivers them directly into the blood stream. We offer several different types of IV treatments depending upon the ailment in particular patient.
Vitamins and minerals provide the raw materials necessary for our cells to function properly. Usually we can get these nutrients through our diet if we are conscientious of what we eat. However, sometimes even a great diet may not translate to proper nutrition at the cellular level. There can be many causes of this, which may include poor digestion, food sensitivities, chronic inflammation, poor immune function, or any sickness. A vicious cycle ensues. Our cells are not healthy and they need nutrients to heal. But, the nutrients are not available because our cells are too weak to transport the vitamins and minerals to where they are needed. This scenario describes a typical situation in which intravenous vitamin (IV) therapy would be indicated.
Intravenous therapy takes place when medicine is injected directly into the veins and often works more swiftly and successfully than medicine given through the stomach. In the past, a very limited amount drugs could be administered intravenously, but in today’s health care world the number has been greatly extended with applications for many additional disease treatments. Especially in cases of pneumonia and diphtheria, the rapid passage of the medicine through the body using intravenous therapy gives it an advantage over the much slower process of ingesting medication orally.
There are numerous conditions that IV therapy and chelation therapy (injection of a solution into the bloodstream that binds with metals and passes through the kidneys for removal from the body) can improve. Patients Medical can tailor the IV protocol by varying the type and amounts of nutrients.
It can even be used periodically in healthy people to enhance overall well-being.
It is impossible orally to attain the high levels of nutrients that IV vitamins are capable of delivering. Oral vitamins and nutrients are converted or broken down in the stomach and liver during the absorption process. High doses often cause gastrointestinal symptoms and diarrhea. IV nutrients go directly into the bloodstream in an unaltered, safe form that is very well tolerated, with minimal or no side effects. Intravenous vitamin C is especially effective in fighting viruses and cancer cells, while being completely safe for all normal cells. It is because of this characteristic that IV vitamin C is particularly useful in knocking out the viruses of the common cold, flu, and sore throat. Patients often start feeling better within hours of administration.
Immune Enhancement Therapy
Immune drips are a combination of high dose of vitamin C, B Complex Vitamins, magnesium, trace minerals and Glutathione, which enhances the immune system. These could be used for
- Respiratory infections including pneumonia
- Gastrointestinal infections
- Lyme disease
- Chronic illnesses of many kinds causing physical debility
- Preoperative support
- Postoperative support
- Cancer (including individuals undergoing
High Dose Vitamin C Infusion
High dose vitamin C drips could deliver anywhere from 25,000 to a 100,000 mg of vitamin C to the body. This is used in various Viral infections, including herpes, Shingles, Epstein-Barr virus etc and also in cancer patients.
Glutathione therapy is given where high amounts of antioxidants are needed in the body, e.g. Parkinson's disease, Certain Acute Viral infections, and other heart conditions.
Amino Acid Drip
These are used nutritional deficiency caused by malnutrition or Mal absorption
Plaquex therapy does what the name suggests. It removes the plaque buildup inside the arterial walls using the natural substance.
Plaquex Therapy: Plaquex does just what its name suggests; it reduces plaque deposits in arterial walls. But it isn't just for people with arterial blockages. Plaquex is a combination of essential phospholipids (EPL) specially formulated for IV administration. Phospholipids are primary constituents of the membranes that surround each of our cells, protecting and controlling what enters them. Among the most essential phospholipids is phosphatidylcholine (PC), which is the backbone of Plaquex. As we age, our production of PC and other phospholipids falters, which has adverse effects throughout your body. Plaquex therapy replenishes your supply of these crucial building blocks, and has demonstrated the ability to:
- Decrease plaque deposits in arteries
- Improve exercise tolerance
- Reduce angina attacks
- Lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
- Boost circulation
- Increase male potency
- Improve kidney function
- Anyone with heart disease, diabetes, arterial blockages, sexual dysfunction,
high cholesterol, or lipid problems can greatly benefit from Plaquex therapy.
Allergy and Asthma IV: IV nutritional therapy used for asthma, COPD, pneumonia, respiratory infections and allergies. IV nutrients include vitamin C, magnesium, mucosa compositum, and pyridoxine.
Anti-Fungal IV: Many patients suffer from the “yeast syndrome”, as described by William Crook, MD, in his bestselling book. Fungus can develop and contribute to a myriad of health problems including diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivities, allergies, asthma, and depression/anxiety to name a few. The "ABC’S"--Antibiotics, Birth control pills, Cortisone (Prednisone), and Sugar found in the typical American diet--are considered to be the major triggers for this disorder. Anti-fungal IV drips are used to inactivate fungus and improve immune function.
Arthritis IV: IV nutritional therapy with an anti-inflammatory effect, helpful for arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and degenerative disc disease. IV nutrients include USP vitamin C, discus composition, and trace minerals.
Brain Improvement IV: IV nutritional therapy that combines Glutathione (primary brain anti-oxidant), alpha lipoic acid, folate, and cerecomp homeopathic to improve memory, impaired concentration, depression, insomnia, and anxiety.
Cancer IV: Recent studies at the NIH (National Institute of Health), conducted by Harvard Medical School researcher, Mark Levin, MD have demonstrated the anti-tumor effect of high dosages of vitamin C given intravenously. This same effect does not occur with oral vitamin C. This therapy was originally developed by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling, expanded upon by Dr. Klenner and Dr. Cathcart and, more recently, Hugh Rirodan, MD. Intravenous, high-dosage vitamin C also reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation for those receiving conventional medical therapies.
Chelation Therapy IV: IV nutritional therapy that uses either calcium EDTA or disodium EDTA to remove heavy metals, improve blood flow, and remove artery damaging chemicals from the blood vessels. Some of the health conditions that benefit from chelation therapy include hypertension, heart disease, memory decline, autism, diabetic complications, and many others.
Diabetes IV: IV nutritional therapy used to improve glucose metabolism, improve neuropathy and vascular disease associated with diabetes. IV nutrients include alpha lipoic acid, folic acid, vitamin B12, thiamin, and ubichinon compositum.
Digestive IV: IV nutritional therapy used to promote digestive track repair associated with chronic gerd, ulcers, maldigestion and malabsorption, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. IV nutrients including mucosa compositum, ala, riboflavin, and others.
Dr Gallagher’s Cocktail IV: IV nutritional therapy used to increase energy, repair enzyme systems, and promote optimum nervous system function. IV nutrients include vitamin C, glutathione, glyoxal compositum, and coenzyme compositum.
Dr. Wright’s RMR: IV protocol developed by Jonathan Wright, MD, that infuses high concentrations of minerals to quickly boost energy and alkalinize in the body. Rapid mineral replacement (RMR) often has immediate health benefits for those suffering from stress related disorders, exhaustion, or a general sense of depletion.
Glutathione IV: Powerful anti-oxidant found predominately in the brain and liver. When given intravenously it improves liver and brain function. Often used for memory enhancement, dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuropathy, and liver disease.
Healthy Defense IV: IV nutritional therapy used for viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. Helpful for sinusitis, bronchitis, COPD, and asthma. IV nutrients include therapeutic doses of ascorbic acid, pantothenic acid, and galium-heel.
Healthy Heart IV: IV nutritional therapy helpful for atherosclerosis, heart disease, and hypertension. IV nutrients include magnesium, trace minerals, cerecomp, and pyridoxine.
Heavy Metal Detox IV: IV nutritional therapy used to treat heavy metal exposure that may contribute to heart disease, diabetes, cancer, mental illness and other degenerative diseases. IV nutrients include calcium EDTA and vitamin C.
Hypertension IV: High blood pressure is often associated with mineral deficiencies and heavy metal burden. Intravenous nutritional therapy can rapidly lower blood pressure, and when used in conjunction with other lifestyle measures can reduce the risk of heart disease.
Immune Drips: IV nutritional therapy infusions that include high dosage, pharmaceutical grade vitamin C found to be helpful for chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, chronic infections, hepatitis, and cancer.
Liver Detox IV: IV nutritional therapy used for liver repair and detoxification. Contains glutathione, ALA, hepar compositum, and high dose vitamin C.
Magnesium IV: Used for arrhythmia, asthma, diabetes and more. Intravenous magnesium has been shown to increase the rate of survival after a heart attack. It has the ability to smooth arrhythmias, lower blood pressure, and improve the outcome for patients undergoing stent placement for blocked coronary arteries. Asthmatic, COPD, and chronic bronchitis patients benefit from this therapy because IV magnesium relaxes the spastic bronchial tubes (airway) associated with these disorders. This is an important therapy for diabetics suffering from retinopathy (eye damage), and helps to improve the sensitivity of insulin. Patients suffering from kidney stones also benefit from this therapy.
Migraine Headache IV: For millions of Americans, migraine headaches can be disabling, leading to countless medications that are often replete with side effects. The migraine IV “cocktail” utilizes concentrations of magnesium, riboflavin, and other key nutrients to relieve acute migraine episodes and prevent future occurrences.
Myer’s Cocktail: IV vitamin and mineral therapy developed in the 1970’s by John Meyer, M.D., a physician at Johns Hopkins University. The “cocktail” is indicated for chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasm, asthma, hives, congestive heart failure, angina (chest pain), infections, and senile dementia.
PMS/Menopause IV: IV nutritional therapy used for PMS, menopause, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, depression, cramps, etc. IV nutrients include vitamin B complex, pyridoxine, magnesium, and cerecomp.
Vision IV: Deterioration of sight, including cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, is one of the most common problems associated with aging. Around age 60, the likelihood of serious ocular disorders, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy accelerates. Fortunately, these vision problems can be slowed and even reversed in many cases. Due to the fact that free radical damage is a significant contributor to these problems, antioxidants have a strong protective effect. Current medical research has proven that visual decline can often be improved or reversed with anti-oxidant therapies. Special “vision drips” including anti-oxidants, fatty acids, amino acids, carotenoids, minerals, and glutathione are used individually or combined with chelation to help with visual decline.
