New Intravenous Therapies
We need to slow down the aging process so that we can concentrate on disease prevention.
Most of the healthcare dollar is spent on diseases of aging; these include high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, cancer and diseases compromising cognition and brain health. For most individuals with these illnesses, the last few years of life is spent on chemotherapy, intensive care unit visits, and costly medication.
Our Genes are not our Destiny
Some of the reasons we age include mitochondrial dysfunction, free radicals, inflammation, autoimmune disease, elevated blood sugar, hormone decline, telomere shortening, decreased oxygen utilization, toxins, infections, heavy metals as well as nutritional deficiencies.
It is absolutely essential to perform individualized testing to determine where you are in your life. Most of us are toxic and we all have multiple infections that we may not even be aware of. We test for your metabolism, vitamin deficiencies, toxic exposure, malabsorption, amino acids, fatty acids, free radicals, infections, hormone levels, homocystine level, adrenal testing autoimmune testing, gastrointestinal testing, and your complete set of genes called single nucleotide polymorphisms. It is also important to know your telomere length at baseline before beginning this program but most importantly it needs to be rechecked at a later point in time to make sure that it is increasing. Obviously traditional testing is also important.
Once testing is performed a personalized program is developed for each patient. No two to people are the same. We believe that intravenous therapies to correct deficiencies lower inflammation and squelch the free radicals is absolutely essential.
Keep in mind that not only do we developed deficiencies and vitamins, amino acids, minerals and other cofactors but we also developed decreased oxygen utilization. This can be reversed with the use of intravenous ozone. Ozone is also a regulator of the immune system, improves circulation, is anti-inflammatory, and has the ability to kill many infections.
The rationale for intravenous nutrition therapy is quite simple. Intravenous administration of nutrients can achieve serum concentrations that are not obtainable with oral administration. For example oral doses of vitamin C cannot reach the level of intravenous administration. The highest serum vitamin C level observed after all administration of pharmacologic doses of vitamin C was 9.3 mg/dL. In contrast IV administration of 50 g of vitamin C resulted in a mean peak plasma level of 80 mg/dL.
Another example of the increased effectiveness of IV infusions vs oral medications is that of an anti viral effect which was only seen after IV therapy not oral therapy of Vitamin C. High-dose vitamin C forms peroxide and human cells and can kill cancer cells. Normal cells have adequate levels of catalase which detoxifies the peroxide to hydrogen water. Cancer cells on the other hand have 10-100 times less catalase than do healthy cells. The hydrogen peroxide is effective in cancer treatment.
Magnesium plays a key role in energy production and many of us are deficient. I do intravenous magnesium a few times a week to maintain adequate levels for my heart brain and various organs in my body.
Adequate levels of glutathione are essential. It is the major antioxidant system in the body. Low glutathione levels predict disease. It is a wonderful antioxidant and helps with detoxification. I have seen dramatic results using it and Parkinson’s disease as well as many other chronic diseases.
Other intravenous therapies include zinc, curcumin, selenium, heavy metal detox therapies with chelation, phosphatidylcholine, Nad and many others.
The other benefit of intravenous therapy is that it works almost instantaneously and many of us that are sick and not absorb the oral form.
I believe that IV therapy is beneficial. I have suffered from some devastating chronic diseases and have definitely found it beneficial for me.
