Intravenous (IV) Therapies involve vitamins, minerals, ozone, chelating agents, and other nutrients that are delivered directly into the bloodstream. The IV Therapy that is administered is dependent upon each patient’s individual condition and even customized to each patient. There are a variety of different IV Therapies that are provided at our office and more than one IV Therapy can be provided during a treatment session.
IV Therapies are used to treat a variety of different health conditions and increase the effectiveness of regenerative medicine injections. Before performing any IV Therapy, a detailed consultation, examination, and lab work would need to be performed.
There are a variety of different Intravenous (IV) nutritional solutions that are provided dependent upon each individual’s specific health condition. IV nutrients are the fastest way to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves. We use several IV protocols, including intravenous Vitamin C (IVC). Vitamin C is one of the best antiviral agents available. It can neutralize and eliminate a wide range of toxins and is an antioxidant that helps protect from free radicals which cause oxidative stress. It has an antihistamine effect which is useful in fighting allergies and the National Institute of Health has published evidence demonstrating vitamin C’s anti-cancer properties. In his book, Primal Panacea, Dr. Thomas Levy, MD, JD writes about the benefits of high dose Vitamin C given intravenously for treatment of the following conditions: osteoporosis, arthritis, cancer, herpes, viral infections, and cardiovascular conditions.
Other specialized intravenous solutions are used to assist with the following conditions: macular degeneration, tissue and wound healing, and Parkinonism disease states. Vitamin C is not only helpful but necessary for the production of collagen, but also in regenerative medicine with injections to strengthen ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.
One of the most popular IV nutrition approaches is the Myer’s Cocktail, named after Dr. John Myers, M.D. who used intravenous injections to treat his patients for a variety of health conditions.
The Myer’s Cocktail IV is a mixture of B Vitamins, Vitamin C, and other minerals. Dr. Alan Gaby, MD describes many acute and chronic health conditions that benefit from intravenous nutrition: blood pressure, fatigue, depression, mental clarity, asthma, migraines, infections, fibromyalgia, muscle spasm, chronic sinusitis, upper respiratory infections, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and many other conditions.
Gaby writes about the benefits of The Myers Cocktail and describes the following benefits: helpful with both acute and chronic problems, bypasses ineffective absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, enhances the healing process, promotes greater health, promotes greater ability to absorb nutrients, and promotes the use of nutrients orally.
