Are you taking lots of vitamins and still not feeling well? Are you not taking vitamins you need? When you take oral vitamins do you get indigestion? No one eats perfectly. You may have gastrointestinal symptoms and your food is not being digested or absorbed well. Our foods are compromised as well due to early harvesting and depleted soil; they can also be filled with herbicides and pesticides.
The only way we get healthy and stay well is the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. IV nutrients have 100% absorption and bathe the body in nutrients. Good nutrition is important for a healthy body and a healthy brain.
Vitamin C’s starring role in IV administration is due to its antiviral properties that make it useful in treating colds and influenza. Because humans cannot make vitamin C, there is much benefit to be had from IV vitamin C. It is indicated for immune support, for treating allergic conditions and to aid in the detoxification of heavy metals.
Nutrient depletion is common, especially in patients requiring surgery who may not have been able to tolerate eating prior to surgery, or who suffer from a poor diet. IV administration of nutrients before surgery can have a positive impact on the post-surgical course, including less pain and faster healing.
Though dehydration is obvious after vomiting and diarrhea, its role in chronic disease is often overlooked. Chronic, low-grade dehydration impairs cellular function. Afflicted patients can respond well to re-hydration by IV fluids. A blend of vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients comprise various IV protocols used to replenish nutrients any time someone feels run down, is exhausted by chronic illness or is under more stress than usual. Stress “eats up” nutrients (especially B vitamins), thereby creating a temporary exaggerated need.
Recent studies at the NIH (National Institutes of Health) conducted by Harvard Medical School researcher, Mark Levin, MD, have demonstrated the anti-tumor effect of high dosage IV vitamin C. 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 Drs. Klenner and Cathcart and, more recently, Hugh Rirodan. While IV therapies are not suggested as a primary cancer therapy, they do help enhance the immune system which can help the body fight disease.
Glutathione is a master detoxifier made by the liver. The primary role of glutathione is to protect cells from free radicals, those destructive chemicals formed by normal metabolism and by exposure to various environmental toxins. Glutathione also enhances the function of other antioxidant compounds by keeping them in a form suitable for capture of free radicals.
The efficacy is also increased when it is combined with vitamin C. The combination of vitamin C and glutathione supports your immune system and reduces fatigue. Glutathione coupled with a well-balanced diet, daily exercise and a stress-free life can have a powerful and positive impact on life.
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) can also be given in an IV. PC makes up about 60-80% of our cell membranes.
Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other natural agents can be administered in a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere while a person reads, listens to music or rests.
By bypassing the digestive system, the needed nutrients go directly to the bloodstream, literally bathing the cells in nutrients. When you simply cannot afford to be sick or lack energy, consider IV therapy.
Inflammation occurs throughout life. Inflammation may be caused by processed foods, gluten sensitivity, food allergies, infections, stress, toxins and hormone imbalance. This damages cell membranes! IV phosphatidylcholine can help repair and support our cell membranes.
