What is intravenous therapy?
IV therapy is an alternative to oral treatment. It is the infusion of a mixture directly into the bloodstream using a sterile catheter inserted into your vein. While this type of treatment has been common in hospitals and in the medical community for a long time, it is emerging as a treatment in clinics and practices for outpatient use. In some cases, medications that are destroyed by stomach acid and can’t be given orally can be administered using this kind of therapy.
Doctors that perform IV therapy must be licensed by the state board of pharmacies and meet strict standards and regulations set by the board, and by the government. Dr. K has been a licensed intravenous doctor since he earned his Medical Doctorate degree in (718) 622-2042.
At Healing Health Services we are licensed and trained to deliver a number of IV therapies to promote healing and health.
What does intravenous therapy treat?
IV therapy treats poor nutrition and low immunity.
High dose vitamin C is especially useful any time you are under greater than usual amounts of stress, feeling excessive fatigue, or when your immune system needs bolstering to fight acute or chronic viral and bacterial infections.
If you are seriously ill, with a complex condition and cannot eat, or ingest and keep food or medication down, this treatment can provide much-needed energy, nutrients, and relief. These are just a few of the reasons that IV intravenous infusions are not being practiced at outpatient clinics throughout the country.
Vitamin C IV therapy is one of the most frequently used intravenous infusions. Vitamin C, an essential nutrient that strengthens our immune system, is challenging for our bodies to absorb. In fact, only 18% of the C we consume is usable. However, administered by IV, vitamin C is 100% bioavailable. This iv therapy supports the function of adrenal glands, raises energy levels, improves and protects skin, strengthens tendons and bones, and can help fight the side effects of chemotherapy or radiation.
A megadose infusion of Vitamin C combats chronic viral infections and offers strong immune support. It’s been known to be effective in the fight against fibromyalgia, and the easing of symptoms following cancer treatments.
A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish and detox your bloodstream and organs. However, we may struggle to obtain nutrients through normal digestive functions if our systems are not operating at peak efficiency. Conditions such as stress, or illness, or a food intolerance can inhibit the absorption of important things like calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and all of the essential vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, and folic acid. The proper amount of these nutrients keeps your systems all working at peak efficiency, and rids your body of toxins that can lead to illness.
IV therapy treatments improve brain and liver function.
Glutathione is the “superhero” of all antioxidants and has a multitude of benefits. Naturally produced in our liver cells, Glutathione acts as a master detoxifier and is found in every cell in our body. The benefits of glutathione are extraordinary, as it flushes our body of toxins, heavy metals, and free radicals that pose a threat to our health and wellbeing.
At Healing Health Services an iv drip of glutathione therapy can be used to improve brain and liver function. This iv infusion also improves memory while helping to lower the risk of dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and forms of neuropathy and liver disease.
IV therapy addresses fatigue, fibromyalgia, and heart failure.
Known by some as the “Myers’ cocktail,” there is an infusion that was developed by John Myers at Johns Hopkins University that treats a number of conditions, such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasm, asthma, hives, congestive heart failure, chest pain, infections, and senile dementia.
