Why is intravenous therapy such an effective tool?
The first system compromised with illness is often the digestive system. There are many common reasons for digestive disorder such as dietary sensitivities and medications. When the digestive or GI system’s functionality is weakened health issues are perpetuated. This disrupts the body’s ability to heal itself. IV therapies bypass the digestive system and allow for full absorption of nutrients, amino acids and herbs administered directly into the bloodstream. There those nutrients can help the digestive system and other systems of the body heal.
Auto immune disorders: allergies and nutritional deficiencies are just a few of the culprits that can suppress the immune system. By intravenously administering high doses of nutrients as well as anti-inflammatory herbs like licorice root we can restore the immune system.
Athletes: Intravenously administered glutamine after a game or training session can speed recovery and restore function to lungs and muscle fibers. In contrast, many athletes are given high doses of Arginine a legally compliant and naturally occurring amino acid that helps the body to produce more growth hormone to prepare for game season.
Cancer patients: We take an integrative approach and work in conjunction with patients that choose to chemotherapy and/or radiation to assist with the toxic side effects. We work with patient’s immune system to help with recovery and quality of life.
Detoxification: Patients with heavy metal toxicity and fibromyalgia can benefit from Chelation Therapy. After the therapy we will supplement with higher doses of nutrients to ensure replacement of minerals that might have been taken out along with the toxic metals. Detox is also a great way to kick start a weight loss program.
Neurological conditions: Patients with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s can benefit drastically from IV therapies that incorporate glutathione. A major intercellular antioxidant which increases dopamine levels and improves motor function.
Asthma: Magnesium administered intravenously helps reduce the inflammatory effects of asthma to provide long-term relief. A nebulizer with glutathione and other nutrients may be administered to heal the lungs, as IV therapies work at the blood level.
Diabetes: Patients experiencing diabetes-linked neuropathy have had feeling return to limbs and better regulation of insulin with the administration of Alpha Lapoic Acid, a naturally occurring antioxidant. This is especially effective when combined with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
Fibromyalgia: Since fibromyalgia symptoms include severe muscle pain, amino acids are administered intravenously. These are the building blocks for our muscle tissue and therefore help muscles recover more quickly, ultimately reducing the aches and pain associated with Fibromyalgia.
