Vitamin and mineral, nutritional therapies have been used now for decades, and have gradually increased in popularity over the past 30 years. The famous, Nobel Prize winning Linus Pauling, PhD, pioneered research about Vitamin C and its benefits in the treatment of a wide range of ailments and illnesses. While Dr. Pauling’s research involved the use of oral Vitamin C, John Myers, M.D. developed and put into practice the use of IV Vitamin C for even more powerful results.
I have been administering my own style of intravenous vitamin and nutrient therapy for over 30 years. I use only the highest quality ingredients, custom mixed per patient, and containing a wide breath of medicinal components. I have found these IV’s to be extremely effective in helping my patients with the treatment of medical issues including immune system issues such bronchitis, colds, flus, and fatigue, depression, migraines, heart palpitations, asthma, stress, and Parkinson’s Disease. The drips are antiviral and antispasmodic. I have observed that patients receiving these IV drips do better and function better cognitively and physically.
Intravenous therapy is an excellent way of replacing important needed nutrients such as vitamin C, B vitamins, Calcium, Magnesium, and other minerals as well as the antioxidant Glutathione.
What exactly is a vitamin drip? In our office, we treat one patient at time. I mix each drip for the individual patient, adding whatever vitamins and minerals will help that patient with whatever medical issue they have. The patient sits in a comfortable reclining chair or the patient lies on an exam table, whichever the patient prefers. I insert a tiny butterfly needle into a vein. The butterfly needle has a tube that attaches to the IV tubing and to the bag containing the custom-mixed nutrient liquid, which is slowly dripped into the body through the tube. We constantly monitor the drip, which lasts approximately one hour to one hour and a half. It is a very pleasant, gentle process, during which the patient can rest or read. For busy patients, we administer a small IV push, also known as a Myers Cocktail because it was originally developed by Dr. Myers. These smaller IV’s are accomplished during a shorter appointment period.
For patients with depleted immune systems or with specific health issues, we like to embark on a series of drips to balance and replenish the body, to help the patient recover, improve, and maintain that improvement in their well being. Some patients decide to have an IV treatment once a month or quarterly, depending on their needs and scheduling considerations.
I must point out that we use the drips as a part of an overall health program, along with whatever else is needed and recommended for each patient’s best interests. The intravenous vitamin drips are another tool we can utilize in the effective treatment of each patient.
Please note that intravenous vitamin drips are not the same as chelation treatment. I will discuss chelation in a future blog post. For more information about intravenous glutathione-only therapy, click here.
When intravenous vitamin drips are needed, they are definitely transformative. In our holistic, integrative medical practice, the drips are used to optimally address issues that, I know from clinical experience, will respond best to this therapy.
