Intravenous Nutrient Therapies & Chelation Therapies
Intravenous therapies are used to administer vitamins, minerals, other nutrients, and sometimes non-toxic medications. Chelation usually involves EDTA, the same thing widely used as a food preservative. These are used in the treatment of patients who suffer from a wide range of conditions, to prevent disease, or to promote a feeling of improved well being.
Below is a list of Intravenous Nutrient Therapies. For Costs, Click Here.
Basic “Myer’s Cocktail” – A large syringe full of essential vitamins and minerals. Takes about 5-10 minutes to “push” into the body. Can be dramatically beneficial in acute asthma, migraine headache, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, cardiovascular disease, congestive heart failure, among others. Can be rejuvenating to those feeling tired, weak, run down.
Basic Megadose C Infusion – 25 grams of vitamin C over about 45 minutes. Includes other vitamins and minerals. Much higher doses can be used on some occasions. For building up the immune system, for treatment of connective tissue disease, for treatment of infections, atherosclerosis, auto-immune diseases. Also contributes to increased energy.
Basic Chelation – The old standard of Chelation Therapy, EDTA with vitamins and some minerals, has been used safely and effectively by thousands of physicians and millions of patients over the past thirty years. It is FDA approved for treating lead poisoning. It also removes other heavy metals and neutralizes a range of toxins. Clinical experience of physicians who administer chelation therapy show that it is beneficial in reversing atherosclerotic disease in the heart, brain, and anywhere else it might occur in the body (leg, genital tract, kidneys, etc). The old standard version gave 3 grams of EDTA over 3 hours. Research and clinical experience has shown that 1 1/2 grams over 1 1/2 hours has the effect on cardiovascular disease as the long version. We are offering the short version. There are many other reported benefits, including greatly reduced cancer risk.
Fast Chelation – Using a variant of the main ingredient in chelation therapy (Calcium EDTA instead of di-Sodium EDTA used on the Basic Chelation for so many years in the United States), the fast chelation will remove heavy metals and have the other benefits of EDTA, but cutting the time from 1 1/2 hours to ten minutes. There is not yet enough data to say the Fast Chelation will be as effective in cardiovascular disease as the Basic Chelation or not. Those familiar with its use over the past ten years in Germany tout both the safety and efficacy.
