IV NUTRIENT THERAPY

 

Regenerative Complete offers several different types of intravenous therapies depending on patient needs and conditions. These can range from immune system enhancement to detoxification and relaxation.

THE BENEFITS OF IV THERAPY

 

One of the main benefits of intravenous treatment is that nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream. Intravenous treatments therefore are exceptionally powerful because they circumvent issues with oral administration, including stomach upset, absorption issues, and loss of potency. In addition, since the nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream and avoid the gastrointestinal system, very large doses can be administered without gastrointestinal side effects which can limit dosing. A perfect example of this is vitamin C, which can only be taken in fairly small amounts orally before causing stomach upset. In contrast, very large doses of vitamin C, which can be very beneficial for the immune system, can be administered safely and without stomach side effects with an intravenous delivery route.

IV Therapies have been known to be beneficial for the following conditions:

  • Autoimmune Conditions

  • Neurological Conditions

  • Memory Enhancement

  • Depression

  • Infections

  • Dementia

  • Lyme disease

  • Mold Exposure

  • Migraines

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Detoxification

  • Heavy Metal Toxicity

  • Parkinson’s Disease

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Anxiety

  • Low Immune System

Why Take IV Vitamin Therapy Instead of Vitamin Pills?

  • Nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream and the cells

  • Only IV vitamin therapy can deliver the high concentrations required for clinical effectiveness

  • IV therapy avoids side effects like upset stomach and diarrhea that may occur with high-dose oral vitamins

 

VITAMINS:

Vitamins are actually natural substances which our physical bodies utilize, in extremely smaller quantities, for an assortment of metabolic methods. Individuals that might require vitamin supplements consist of expecting and breastfeeding females, a few vegetarians, men, and women that consume big amounts of alcoholic drinks, drug addict, individuals with severe ailments, and also the older people.

 

Vitamin deficiencies

High-Dose Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy 

Vitamin C has actually remained in the general public awareness for many years; it came to be much more well-known whenever the Nobel prize-winning chemist, Linus Pauling, started marketing this as a kind of global magic potion.

 

Did you know that Vitamin C:

  • Just what's so crucial about INTRAVENOUS Vitamin C? It's a lot simpler to consume a tablet!

  • Very high dosage Vitamin C provided by mouth triggers stomach upset and looseness of the bowels (typically everything above 5 g/day creates troubles).

  • When anyone consumes megadoses of Vitamin C by mouth, very little is actually assimilated; the majority of is excreted.

  • INTRAVENOUS management results in a lot greater blood and intracellular amounts of Vitamin C than will be feasible by mouth.

How much Vitamin C can be given safely via IV?

  • Infusions of 10-20 g are actually provided regularly. Amounts of 100 g at a moment have actually been provided with no adverse effects.

  • A tiny bunch of clients, especially those of Middle-Eastern origin, might obtain a congenital disease name G6PD shortage; those individuals must not really obtain high-dose Vitamin C treatment. For that reason, our team utilizes a basic blood test to eliminate this specific problem prior to starting therapy.

Which conditions do we find we can treat effectively with intravenous Vitamin C?

  • Specific neurological problems

Our team typically provide Vitamin C as a part of a combo intravenous nutrient treatment: Myers' Cocktail. This enables our team to benefit from synergistic biochemical results. 

Myers’ Cocktail 

 

An intravenous vitamin infusion which enhances immune system, reduces fatigue, helps with seasonal allergies, reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia and asthma.

The Myers’ Cocktail is named for the late John Myers, M.D., a Maryland physician who used intravenous injections of nutrients to treat many chronic conditions. Currently, the nutrient cocktail has been popularized by Alan Gaby, M.D., a physician who often writes about nutrition in medicine. He has treated thousands of patients with the Myers’ Cocktail over many years. Conditions which he found to be responded well by this treatment include acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies and cardiovascular disease. He also observed improvements in athletic performance.

The Myers’ Cocktail works by increasing the blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond that which can be achieved when supplementing orally. For example, Vitamin C given intravenously has been found to reach blood concentrations more than 50 times greater than what can be achieved when given orally.

The idea is that many illnesses and conditions are associated with digestive disturbances such as bloating, indigestion and food sensitivities and that people with such conditions may not absorb many of the nutrients needed to return them to good health. Also, many diseases and inflammation cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate, or to require higher amounts for proper healing. When nutrients are given intravenously, the digestion is bypassed. ADDITIONALLY the levels in the bloodstream are temporarily increased so that the nutrients are “coaxed” into the cells, and frequently into the mitochondria where they are active. This temporary boost frequently “kick-starts” the cells, so that energy is produced more efficiently in them.

Some patients feel an energy boost lasting days or weeks. In the case of fibromyalgia, decreased pain can be observed. In other chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, because the “leaky” nature of the gut, the infusion helps get necessary nutrients into the cells. Chronic asthma and other lung disease, congestive heart failure, and chronic allergic problems may respond with more energy and less symptoms. Patients who get sick often with infections may find an improved immune response, with less susceptibility to viral illnesses.

A small catheter is inserted into a vein, and the infusion is given very slowly over 20-30 minutes. Side effects are remarkably rare and almost always are limited to local irritation of the vein. The most common sensations are heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), and the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion begins. The cocktail is usually given 1-2 times per week, and beneficial effects are usually felt by the fourth visit. Many patients with chronic conditions choose to continue the infusions every 1-4 weeks or when they feel their energy slipping.

Glutathione IV

 

While the process of administering glutathione IV therapy may be simple, the benefits of this incredible antioxidant treatment are numerous. Glutathione is naturally produced within the human body, but factors such as age and poor diet can cause the levels of this essential antioxidant to decrease. Luckily, glutathione IV therapy can help restore the body’s supply of this vital nutrient which helps to maintain many important functions.

What Is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant found in fruits, vegetables, fungi, and animals. It is a tripeptide comprised of three amino acids — glycine, glutamine, and cysteine. In humans, glutathione is produced by the liver and is essential for overall health.

 

How Does Glutathione Positively Affect Your Body and Health?

 

Glutathione plays an important role in a myriad of processes. It is utilized by cells to carry out functions including:

  • Supporting the immune system

  • Detoxification

  • Transporting mercury and other heavy metals out of the brain

  • Neutralizing free radicals

  • Regulating cell death (apoptosis) and cellular proliferation

  • Maintaining mitochondrial DNA

  • Regenerating nutrients (such as vitamins C and E)

  • Maintaining the overall function of certain enzymes

When glutathione levels are too low or too high, these and other vital functions can be impacted. Low levels of glutathione are linked to several conditions and ailments including clinical depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. 

What Are the Benefits of Glutathione?

 

Because glutathione is utilized in so many ways, the benefits of maintaining healthy levels are numerous. As studies gain a deeper understanding of this versatile antioxidant, researchers find more ways that glutathione can help patients. Here are some of the benefits of glutathione and how they work:

  • How Glutathione Reduces Oxidative Stress 

You’ve likely heard the terms “free radicals” and “oxidative stress” thrown around by doctors, nutritionists, scientists, and other members of the healthcare community. Understanding what they mean and how they work will show you how important glutathione is for the body.

Free radicals are chemical compounds found in the human body that occur as a byproduct of cellular respiration (the process of converting food into energy). They can also be formed as a result of exposure to sunlight, exercising, and even coming in contact with pollutants found in the earth’s atmosphere. Free radicals are all negatively charged, meaning that they are missing at least one electron. Because of this imbalance, free radicals steal the electron(s) they need from surrounding cells. This damages the surrounding cells and can even alter the coding on a strand of DNA. 

This is where antioxidants play an important role. Antioxidants give electrons to free radicals and help repair DNA. They work to maintain the overall health of various cells within the body by neutralizing free radicals. This is why our bodies require a balance between the levels of free radicals and antioxidants like glutathione. When there are more free radicals than antioxidants, this can put a serious strain on the body, which is called “oxidative stress”.

Low levels of glutathione within the body have been shown to lead to oxidative stress. This is concerning because oxidative stress is linked to cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, chronic inflammation, and an array of other ailments.

  • How Glutathione Helps You Stay Healthy

Studies show that glutathione can boost the immune system, decrease oxidative stress, and protect against infection. It can help your body fight off viral, microbial, and parasitic infections. During a cold or flu, intravenous, aerosolized or nebulized glutathione can help reduce chest congestion.

  • How Glutathione Reduces Pain and Improves Mobility in Patients with Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral artery disease (also referred to as peripheral vascular disease) is a circulatory ailment characterized by narrowed arteries that restrict blood flow to a person’s extremities (most commonly the legs and feet). PAD can cause pain and cramping while walking or exercising, numbness, weakened pulse, and even erectile dysfunction in men. Glutathione IV treatment has been found to prolong the amount of time that patients with PAD can walk without pain by increasing circulation and improving blood flow.

  • How Glutathione Improves Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance results in increased blood sugar levels, which can lead to type II diabetes. Studies have found that low levels of glutathione are connected to insulin resistance. Restoring glutathione levels may not only prevent the onset of diabetes but also reduce oxidative stress and tissue damage in patients with uncontrolled diabetes.

  • How Glutathione Reduces Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

While glutathione is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease, studies show that it can reduce symptoms and side effects caused by the disease. Glutathione IV therapy may help reduce rigidity and tremors as well as slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease.

  • How Glutathione Reduces Cell Damage Caused by Fatty Liver Disease

Oxidative stress can lead to both alcoholic and nonalcoholic forms of fatty liver disease. Luckily, research shows that glutathione IV therapy can positively impact bilirubin, protein, and enzyme levels in patients suffering from chronic fatty liver disease.

  • How Glutathione Can Improve Skin

Some patients seek glutathione IV therapy for its anti-aging benefits. Research shows that glutathione can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve overall skin elasticity. Studies also show a positive impact on psoriasis. 

How Does Glutathione IV Drip Therapy Improve Your Levels?

 

Glutathione IV therapies are particularly effective because they allow doctors to deliver nutrients directly into a patient’s bloodstream. This circumvents the gastrointestinal tract, which would otherwise breakdown the glutathione, and ensures optimal benefits. Glutathione IV treatments last between just 15 to 20 minutes, while patients sit comfortably in a chair and can use their phone, read, or work on a laptop. Patients can return to their normal routine immediately afterward. Multiple treatments are typically required, but this depends on the condition being treated and the severity of symptoms.
