intravenous therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a valuable tool to enhance delivery of nutrients and medications right into the body. By bypassing the digestive tract, we can be assured that 100% of the treatment reaches the blood stream. When we use IV’s we can also work around situations of maldigesting (GI disease such as Crohn’s or IBS) or situations where a nutrient cannot be taken in high enough quantity orally (Vitamin C). IV therapy has been shown helpful for immune support, energy enhancement, cognitive performance, tissue repair and many more.

Phosphatidylcholine Therapy

Intravenous phosphatidylcholine (PC) is one of our staples supports for memory and cognition, liver detoxification and cardiac cell health. PC is one of the primary substances which makes up the white matter in your brain and around your other nervous tissue. By infusing PC we try to encourage the body to replace the older, less healthy PC around the cells with new, vibrant PC molecules. PC also helps form Acetylcholine in the brain which is one of the important neurotransmitters involved in memory and cognition.

PC is also essential for detoxification. It is utilized by hepatocytes (liver cells) to push toxins through the detoxification system within the cell. PC can also help depolarize mitochondria (your engines inside each cell) membrane making them more active and healthy.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is used to support individuals dealing with GI and abdominal cancer (especially pancreatic cancer with metastasis), those who have neuropathy (from diabetes or chemotherapy) and individuals with chronic liver disease. It is a powerful antioxidant and helps to protect cells from oxidative damage and stress.

Glutathione

This is known as the “master antioxidant.” As it is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants available. It is great for boosting the immune system, supporting patients with Parkinson’s Disease, reduce inflammation, assisting in liver detoxification, and supporting the aging process. This is also very commonly used in the “anti-aging community” because there is some evidence that it can help even out skin tone and lighten darkened areas such as melasma and age spots.

Glutathione (GSH) is an important compound naturally present in the body throughout life. Research indicated that production levels reduce substantially as we age. Glutathione plays an important roll in a number of reactions in the body. It is an antioxidant neutralizing free radicals and helps maintain levels of Vitamins C and E in their reduced (active) state. GSH also plays a role in detoxification of harmful substances and chemicals in the body. Glutathione will be found in large quantities in the liver to help neutralize toxins. GSH can also help in repairing damage to the liver cells caused by to prolonged alcohol abuse, chemical exposure or excessive intake of refined carbohydrates and sugars leading to fatty liver disease.

High Dose Vitamin C IV

Vitamin C is naturally found in many fruits and vegetables, but it is not always possible to ingest adequate doses to assist in and enhance the body’s immune function. With this IV you receive doses of Vitamin C impossible to take orally and thus can propel the immune system in ways beyond what is typically possible. We consider this IV for general immune function, chronic viral infections, to improve quality of life for patients dealing with cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome/ME, chronic Lyme disease, EBV (mononucleosis), and others

Intravenous vitamin C therapy has already been clinically proven to markedly improve quality of life for cancer patients, and newer research shows it can reduce inflammation and tumour markers with prostate cancer and breast cancer. The science behind IV vitamin C as a therapy to support patients with cancer is accumulating at a rapid rate and preliminary conclusions show it can help improve disease free progression and quality of life for several types of cancers.

Chelation/Heavy metal reduction IV’s

Chelation refers to a chemical process by which certain ions and molecules bind to metals and minerals inside the body. Chelation is used to detoxify and remove heavy metals from your body. We offer different types of chelation IV’s each specific to types of metals we are trying to bind.

Each IV protocol includes vitamins and Glutathione to assist in the detoxification process:

  • Calcium EDTA- It is used for the removal of heavy metals, particularly lead.
  • DMPS- It is also used for the removal of heavy metals, particularly mercury.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide is an immune system stimulant that has been shown in research to help relieve cold and flu symptoms. Research shows that it has anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties.

Meyers Cocktail Multivitamin and Multimineral IV

This IV combines a wide range of minerals and vitamins and delivers it right into the blood stream. These nutrients provide a boost to the immune system and can help supplement nutrients you are not getting elsewhere. Especially helpful individuals who have poor digestion and absorption, those with fatigue and those on a restricted diet. A version of this IV is also used throughout Canada and the US to help those recovering from, shall we say, overindulging in alcohol the night before.

What to Expect During an IV (Intravenous) Session

  • Please try to eat a meal and drink plenty of water before your IV session.
  • Once you arrive, we will assess your vitals and general health to confirm it is safe to continue with the prescribed IV
  • Based on your specific prescription we will then mix specific nutrients in an IV bag and then use a catheter and needle to access the vein.
  • Some discomfort may be felt during the needle insertion; however, we are trained to provide maximum comfort so pain should be minimal.
    Sessions typically last 1-1.5 hours.
  • During your IV you may take a nap, visit with others in the room or catch up on work or movies on your own device.
