What is Intravenous Therapy?

IV Nutrient Therapy is the infusion of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and / or immune modulating compounds, putting the nutrients directly into the blood stream. This assures that you receive 100% of what is given and therefore, is a more effective way to drastically boost your immune system, stimulating healing, speeding up recovery (from drugs, surgery and illness), treating specific conditions on a cellular level, and maintain overall health.  

IV Nutrient Therapy is far superior to oral nutrients because you are not limited to what the gut can absorb.  The abilities the GI (gastrointestinal) track can be further inhibited by many reasons such as inflammation, the “fight and flight” response, drugs / medications, illness and injury, which will cause mal-nourishment over time.  Since IV therapy is not restrained by the guts abilities we can use higher dosing reaching therapeutic concentrations so that the healing process can be jumpstarted and you can feel better quicker.  IV medicine is useful in speeding up the healing process in almost all conditions, acute or chronic illnesses, from the common cold to adjunct or alternative cancer treatments.  There are many different IV options to choose from so that and IV protocol can be individualized for the individual patients needs. 

 

What is a Myers IV Cocktail?

A Myers’ Cocktail is a scientifically-formulated mixture of medical-grade nutrients administered through an IV over 1-1.5 hours, pioneered more than fifty years ago by the late Dr. John Myers.  In our very stimulating world today, our need for nutrients has increased and the level of nutrition in most of our foods has dwindled, even in a healthy diet.  Many of us are getting sick due to long standing deficiencies.  In addition, many of us have a gut that is not working optimally, and therefore, hindering our ability to absorb our vitamin and minerals even if eaten. 

 

Some of the IVs Offered:

Myer’s IV Cocktail: Myers Basic, Myer’s Immune, and Super Myer’s IV Cocktails. 

The Myers recipe is offered in it’s basic form, with B5, B6, Methyl-B12, B-complex, Magnesium, calcium, selenium, zinc and 6 grams of Vit C.   The Myers “Immune” IV, has 10 grams of Vitamin C, and added zinc, B1, Methyl Folate, and Taurine.  These IVs can be and usually are tailored to the individuals needs and there are many more options of additives to do so.  The Vitamin C can also be increased to 15-50 grams in the Super Myers IV Cocktail, not only being immune boosting but also antiviral and antibacterial. 

Other additions can be: MIC (Methionine, inositol, and choline) which is used for weight loss, and aids in detoxification and cholesterol support in the liver. 

Glutathione

A very powerful anti-oxidant, referred to as the “mother of antioxidants”, is anti-aging and is required for the detoxification of toxins from the body and maintenance of cellular health.  When administered intravenously, glutathione increases the uptake of cysteine (an amino acid) into cells which works to protect the body from toxicity, increasing liver function. For many Parkinson’s patients glutathione replenishment has proven to be an effective therapy for halting or even reversing disability.   It can be given on its own or as an addition at the end of other IV therapies.

Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, neurotransmitters, and enzymes, and can be use for a wide verity of issues.  It may be used in anti-aging medicine to support health skin, hair, nails and muscles.   Proteins essential to immune system function and blood sugar regulation. Neurotransmitter imbalances have been linked to a variety of diseases including anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADHD, memory loss, weight gain, and addictive disorders.  Also drug and alcohol abuse can cause variance or depletion and amino acids can be used to aid in recovery treatment.   Amino acids are typically obtained through diet however disease may hinder absorption or maintenance in the body and long term stress can create imbalances. 

 

Conditions Regularly Treated:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety/panic attacks
  • Memory loss
  • Weight gain
  • Addictive disorders
  • IBS / Gut inflammation of any kind /Leaky gut

Chelation Therapy (Removing the heavy metals)

We live in a toxic world and the burden that the chemicals we are exposed to every day, are destructive to our bodies natural process, hindering the body’s ability to heal.  Chelation IV therapy involves the administration of a chelator, like DMPS or EDTA, which binds to heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, iron, aluminum, gold, silver, tin, and cadmium, releasing them from the tissues of the body so that they can be excreted safely.   By carrying these heavy metals out of the body through the urine, it reduces the body’s total toxic load.  Removing the obstacles to heal, to cell can restore to health. This intravenous treatment has been safely used for the past 60 years, and has been administered to over a million patients.   Chelation starts with a heavy metal challenge with a 6 hour urine collection and blood work.  Chelation can also be used in treatment to reduce the risk of further cardiovascular events in patients who have both coronary artery disease and diabetes.

Hydration Therapy

Patients who struggle to stay hydrated.  This can be due to illness, inflammation of the GI tract, medications, to prepare for an athletic event or if traveling to a place of high altitude. Intravenous hydration allows patients to regain necessary fluids much quicker than is possible through drinking alone.

Magnesium Push

 

Magnesium is a fundamental nutrient that is needed for a vast number of functions in the body.  It supports health and relaxation of all muscles of the body, including the heart and vessels necessary to keep blood flowing freely.  Magnesium is great for relief of tight, sore, and/or cramping muscles helping everything from stiff neck to restless leg syndrome to PMS cramps.  

 

Magnesium is very calming and physically relaxing, being crucial to quality of sleep.   An IV push of Magnesium provides a therapeutic dose that could not be achieved orally without causing severe diarrhea and GI irritation. Note that high doses of Mag can “relax” you, therefore note there are some that feel a slight drowsiness after IV, do not suggest driving long distances until you know it effect on you. 

 

Conditions Regularly Treated:

  • Cardiovascular disease, arrhythmias, high blood pressure, and can improve the outcome for patients undergoing stent placement for blocked coronary arteries. 
  • Plantar Fasciitis, Myofascial Pain
  • Muscle tension, pain and spasms
  • Muscle tightness / soreness from injury
  • PMS Cramps
  • Asthma
  • Insomnia

H2O2

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), medically compounded and then diluted, which is broken down into water and oxygen in the body.  The oxygenated cells then utilizes the oxygen to kill bacteria, viruses, fungus and cancer.  Hydrogen peroxide therapy helps cleanse toxins, such as industrial pollutants by transforming them into substances the body can metabolize and eliminateThe intravenous drip that takes 1 ½ hours.  Immune strength is another benefit, as IV Hydrogen Peroxide stimulates the production of white blood cells. and can help patients with heart conditions, increasing circulation to the extremities and aids in dissolving cholesterol and calcium deposits in blood vessels. May combo with IV Chelation Therapy. 

 

Conditions Regularly Treated:

  • All kinds of infections, from Lyme to chronic colds / sinus infections
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Candida Syndromes
  • Lyme Disease
  • Chronic, Degenerative Conditions (Atherosclerosis/ DJD / DDD)
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • For detoxification assistance

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) / Poly-MVA (a more absorbable and nutrient rich form)

A potent antioxidant, made by the body and is uniquely both fat soluble and water soluble.  This allows a wider range of protection throughout the body being able to be absorbed into all cells including fat cells.  There is very little free circulating ALA in the body, and therefore IVs can reach the all cells, providing free radical protection and supports energy production in the mitochondria (our cellular power houses), enhancing quality of life.  The Poly-MVA form is uniquely formulated complex combining a palladium molecule in addition to vitamin, minerals and amino acids optimizing its effectiveness and replacing nutrients that may be depleted with other certain therapies. 

 

Research show significant improvement in nerve functions and symptoms of neuropathy, (tingling, burning, numbness, itching, and pain), especially in diabetic patients, can also be used to help treat cancer by regulating genetic expression decreasing the development of cancer cells, and can significantly improve your energy production. 

 

Use for Cancer therapies

IV Poly MVA may increase the quality of life of patients on other cancer treatments by increasing energy levels that tend to be depleted by chemotherapy & radiation and the vitamin-mineral complex also supports overall health by supplying the nutrients that are drained during such cancer treatments.  Poly-MVA has shown to reduce side effects and decreases damage of these therapies to the healthy cells. 

 

Conditions Regularly Treated:

  • Cancer Recovery
  • Neuropathy
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic liver disease
  • MS
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Cognitive decline, senile dementia, Alzheimer’s 
  • Lyme Disease 
  • Parkinson’s Disease

Phosphatidylcholine (PC or PTC) 

PC is a naturally-occurring, necessary component for the formation of cell membranes and the structural and functional integrity of cell membranes throughout the body.  PC acts as a supplier of choline, which the liver utilizes as its primary source of fuel (triglycerides). PC is essential in brain, liver, and intestinal health. PC plays an important role in metabolizing cholesterol and is shown to help repair liver damage caused by alcohol, drugs / medications, pollutants / toxins. It is anti-inflammatory and protective on the mucosa of the intestinal track.  PC also has shown effective in removing plaque in atherosclerosis. 

The anti-aging effect: Our cell wall are made of phospholipids and as we age more and more get replace with cholesterol decreasing the fluidity of our cells.  This is why we get wrinkles.  High levels can cause the reverse the deterioration of cell membranes.
