IV Nutrient Therapy
Scientific evidence has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV Nutrient Therapy.
Take a break from the day in our relaxing IV lounge where you can watch tv, read a book, or take a nap while receiving IV Nutrient Therapy.
All non-AMWM patients need to schedule an initial physician consult for screening and clearance for IV participation.
Some IV’s require weekly lab tests and screening.
Intravenous Nutrient Therapy (IVNT) is a way to introduce nutrients and therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream to correct deficiencies, enhance immune system function, increase energy, and assist in maintaining optimal health. The benefit of IV nutrient therapy over oral nutrition is that nutrients bypass the digestive system allowing them to be absorbed in high concentrations to optimally nourish the body’s cells and tissues. Many nutrients have poor absorption orally resulting in little or no absorption of nutrients and therapeutic supplements. IV nutrient therapy creates an environment of higher than normal levels of specific vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that have been shown in scientific literature to be effective in treatment of a wide variety of symptoms and conditions.
Everyone can enjoy the benefits associated with IV Nutrient Therapy. Some patients are utilizing IVNT in treatment and prevention of medical issues that have been shown to benefit from specific IV protocols. Other patients utilize IVNT for its anti-aging benefits, increase energy, or at the first symptoms of getting sick to prevent the onset of cold or flu. Some patients utilize IV Myers with magnesium protocols to alleviate migraines, while others use use PTC / Glutathione to decrease symptoms associated with fibromyalga and chronic fatigue. Athletes utilize IVNT to increase recovery time, improve performance, and decrease risk of injury. So you can see, whatever your personal needs, there is an IV Nutrient Therapy protocol to assist you in improving your overall health and well-being.
The Myers Cocktail IV is a popular vitamin and mineral therapy developed by Johns Hopkins University physician John Meyer MD in the 1970’s. The Myers Cocktail is a combination of B-vitamins, Vitamin C, and Magnesium that strengthens the immune system to treat and prevent a wide variety of symptoms.
A Myers Cocktail IV with a higher dosage of IV Vitamin C to maximize immune system function. Maximum oral absorption of Vitamin C is around 2 g daily, but through IV infusion, levels can be absorbed at a significantly higher level to promote a therapeutic effect. Vitamin C, if used at proper dose, is documented as one of the best antiviral agents available to kill viral infections, bacteria, and cancer cells in a dose-dependent manner.
Glutathione (GSH) is one of the most important and powerful antioxidants in the body that counteracts the effects of toxins and free radicals that weaken the immune system and accelerate the aging process. Some call it the closest thing to “the fountain of youth.” It is primarily made in the liver, but as we age levels fall dramatically. Many factors decrease Glutathione like viruses, toxins, poor nutrition, stress, illness, heavy metals, chemical exposure, surgery, acetaminophen use, sun damage, protein deficiency, weight loss, cancer, chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Oral absorption of GSH is very poor, so the only effective way to increase GSH levels dramatically is through IV infusion.
Glutathoine prevents free-radical damage to cellular DNA with the capacity to decrease mutation and cancer initiation. GSH has powerful immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties. It is able to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in malignant cells. Glutathione can regenerate other potent antioxidants like vitemin E and vitamin C. It has strong ability to protect organs and tissues against the toxic effects of chemotherapy and radiation and has been shown to reverse resistance to chemotherapy.
There are thousands of references in the medical literature regarding glutathione. Many studies describe the benefits of GSH in cancer therapy, neurodegenerative brain disease (like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease) cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, liver disease, and many other conditions. Free radical formation plays an important role in the development and progression of many of these disorders.
Glutathione is used regularly in combination with Myers IV’s and Phosphatidylcholine as an integral part in many of the IV nutritient therapy protocols.
Phosphatidylcholine (PTC) is a phospholipid that is a primary component that gives strength and flexibility to every cell membrane in the body. PTC has shown to have a positive effect on brain, liver, intestinal, and cardiovascular health resulting in effective treatment for Autism / Autism spectrum disorders, Parkinson’s, MS, ALS, Fibromyalgia, Hepatitis, Arteriosclerosis, and Mood disorders.
HDIVC is used as an integral part of Age Management’s Integrative Oncology Program. Thanks to the work of Linus Pauling, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) has been recognized as one of the best antioxidants and nutrients available to combat numerous health problems. The main limiting factor with Vitamin C has been the poor oral absorption abilities of the body that limit usage of 2 to 3 g daily before adverse effects with the GI system. Through intravenous administration, levels can be administered 100x higher than through oral administration. At higher levels vitamin C acts as a pro-oxidant which is rapidly absorbed by cancer cells and has been shown to have a highly toxic effect promoting apoptosis (cell death). HDIVC is used alone, or in conjunction with chemotherapy and radiation as an effective cancer treatment protocol. HDIVC dosages: 25g / 50g / 75g.
