IV Nutrition Therapy
IV nutrition therapy is a quick and easy way to deliver nutrients into the bloodstream for direct absorption. In the past 10-20 years, we have developed many different types of IV nutrition therapies to include: chelation therapy, vitamin C therapy, silver hydrosol therapy, and several different variations of the Myers Cocktail®. The power of such therapies lies in their ability to specifically target a problem on a cellular level in order to repair damage caused by both natural and man-made attacks on the biological processes of the body. On a daily basis we are exposed to both natural and man-made attacks on our biological systems.
Your body is constantly repairing injury to itself from free radicals, chemical attacks, radiation and pollution damages. IV nutrition therapy is a powerful tool to enhance the repair and regeneration aspects of modern medicine. IV nutrition therapy is not for everybody and should only be used under direct supervision of a medical doctor.
How IV Nutrition Therapy is administered
IV nutrition therapy involves intravenous infusions over a course of treatments in a doctor’s office. Patients are also generally advised to take a comprehensive approach to their treatment and health that includes diet, exercise, stress management programs and dietary supplements, as needed. As with any medical treatment, patients should ensure that their treating physicians have appropriate training and credentials for administration of IV nutrition therapy.
Myers’ Cocktail® was developed over 25 years ago by Dr. John Myers, who was a pioneer in the art of IV Nutrition Therapy. This therapy was designed as a vitamin and detoxifying therapy which supports a variety of conditions and ailments to include: heart health, allergy disorders, sports recovery, hormone therapy, detoxification and mood elevation. The general effect of a Myers’ Cocktail® intravenous therapy appears to be a marked improvement in the energy capacity and function of cells.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid or ascorbate is one of the most important nutrients. It has a wide range of metabolic functions. As one of the most powerful antioxidants, it offers protection from oxidative free radical damage. Vitamin C is essential for collagen production, helps maintain mucous membranes, and is essential for the production of the adrenal gland hormone. Vitamin C has been shown to kill some viruses when the tissue concentration is high enough. This is one of the reasons intravenous vitamin C has been successful in treating viral illnesses such as hepatitis, mononucleosis, and influenza. Large doses of vitamin C have been shown to help chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disorders, severe allergies and asthma. Studies also show that high doses of vitamin C help cancer patients withstand the effect of their traditional therapies, heal faster, be more resilient to infection, develop a better appetite, and remain more active overall.
Chelation therapy is most widely known for removing metallic toxins because of its ability to bind with a metal ion. Heavy metals are stored throughout the body in fat cells, bone, and other tissues. Mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead are just a few of the toxic metals we are exposed to throughout our lifetime. Alternative reasons for chelation include heart disease, autoimmune diseases, peripheral vascular disease, stroke, macular degeneration, dementia, and several diabetic complications. Chelation halts the bad effects and initiates the body’s healing process, often reversing the damage.
Silver Hydrosol, also known as colloidal silver, is silver particles suspended in liquid. It is considered an effective anti-microbial due to its electric charge carried in each particle. Silver Hydrosol can boost your immune system because of its healing properties that occur in three stages:
- It kills all bacteria, fungi and viruses.
- It acts on fibroblast cells to cause them to revert to a more stem cell-like state.
- The silver ions form a complex with living cells in the wound that help convert to mature healed cells.
One of the most important facts about using silver is it doesn’t lead to drug resistance like antibiotics.
