In a perfect world, we would get all of the vitamins and minerals that we need through the foods we eat. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Even with a perfect diet, the combination of many reasons including toxic environment, soil & water depleted of nutrients due to modern production methods, genetic alterations, increase demand and malabsorption with age make it impossible for us to get the vitamins and minerals solely from the foods we eat. Many of us may be suffering from vitamin deficiencies and have no idea that it is occurring. Vitamin injections and IV therapies are the fastest way to restore these deficiencies by bypassing the digestive system and going directly into the bloodstream.
IV infusions can be beneficial for various health conditions including but are not limited to the following:
Myer’s cocktail is the most common type of IV being utilized today and it is perfect for anyone. It works by increasing blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond that which can be achieved when supplementing orally. Conditions that are found to respond well by this treatment include migraines, stress & fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome, low energy, fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasms, pain and seasonal allergies.
Due to the nutrients in the IV, it has also shown to improve athletic performance, increase energy and replenish your vitamin stores. If you need a boost because you feel you are getting sick, run down by daily life, stress, and travel—this may be the right choice for you. There are many more benefits to the Myers IV, talk with your physician at your next visit and discuss how it can benefit you.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that has the power to boost immune function, increase resistance to infection, and protect against a wide range of diseases. Our bodies need Vitamin C but unfortunately do not produce it. As a result, to maintain overall well-being and prevent illness we must rely on exogenous sources of Vitamin C. The most effective route to administer high doses of Vitamin C is intravenously. Our Vitamin C immune therapy drip will help your immune system rapidly restore itself without the side effects of oral Vitamin C.
Vitamin C Immune therapy is recommended for all our patients interested in supporting a healthy immune system, patients undergoing increased stress, during the winter flu season, for chronic viral conditions and before and after a scheduled surgery.
IV Vitamin C in Cancer Care:
Therapeutic doses of Vitamin C, administered intravenously, have been proven to defeat cancer cells. The National Institute of Health in 2005 confirmed that vitamin C is selectively toxic to cancer cells and that tumor-toxic levels of vitamin C can be attained using intravenous administration.
If you are faced with a diagnosis of cancer, treatment options may seem limited to chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery. However, high dose Vitamin C delivered intravenously can reduce inflammation, tumor markers, and improve quality of life in later stages of cancer.
Benefits of Vitamin C:
Glutathione is the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant and is found in every cell of the body. Glutathione is a tri-peptide that bolsters the immune system and also helps neutralize damaging free radicals. Antioxidants can even help your body repair free radical damage caused by such things as stress, radiation, infections, drugs, medications, malnutrition, and aging. It’s the secret to prevent aging and has been used to treat diseases including Alzheimer’s, cancer, cystic fibrosis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease and Lyme disease.
For many Parkinson’s patients, glutathione replenishment has proven to be an effective therapy for halting or even potentially reversing disability. It helps slows the process of nerve cell degeneration. In patients who respond to this therapy, the effects can be almost immediate and dramatic. After a few treatments, patients often experience reduced rigidity, fewer tremors, and improved walking ability.
The Glutathione stores decrease as we age and with exposure to drugs, environmental toxins, cigarette smoke, and poor diets. When a deficiency in Glutathione develops, oral supplements do not offer an answer because the absorption in the gut is extremely poor. Injection or Intravenous administration is really the gold standard to really maximize the antioxidant effects of Glutathione.
What is Chelation Therapy?
Chelation Therapy is the intravenous administration of chelating agents to bind and remove toxic metals from the body. It involves intravenous injections of a chelating agent, EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid. EDTA binds to heavy metals and minerals in the blood so that they can be excreted in the urine.
Is Chelation Safe?
Yes, it is a safe and effective therapy backed by more than 50 years of research showing it safely reduces toxic metals in the body.
The EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) used in chelation is FDA approved for the removal of toxic levels of lead from the body. For over 50 years, it has been used to remove toxic lead in children who have accidentally ingested lead from painted surfaces and toys. We have seen how it has helped improve the health and quality of life of thousands of patients in our practice.
How is EDTA administered?
EDTA mixed in a water solution with vitamins, nutrients, and B12 is typically administered through an IV drip once a week for 30 weeks or a total of 30 treatments in one year. Treatment time is approximately 1-½ hours. The urine you pass during the chelation process and for six hours after you finish treatment is collected and sent to the lab for testing. The laboratory testing determines the amount and type of metals in your body.
These metals, at low levels, are associated with about 70% of all cancer deaths and about 50% of all cardiovascular related deaths. Chelation therapy cleans up your body by removing the heavy metal burden.
