specialized IV therapy

The IV wellness boutique offers specialized IV vitamin therapy to help support patients with serious medical conditions including cancer, autoimmune disease, inflammatory bowel disease, MS, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and heavy metal toxicity.

High Dose Vitamin C In Cancer Therapy

Intravenous vitamin C can support a majority of cancer cases, assisting in the arrest of growth and spread of tumours. It does so by producing hydrogen peroxide in cancer cells, which creates oxidative stress forcing the cancer cells to die off. Healthy cells are spared from this process as they can safely remove the hydrogen peroxide.

Vitamin C is often thought of as a potent antioxidant molecule. For this reason, oncologists are often hesitant to support the use of vitamin C in cancer, for fear it will neutralize the oxidative mechanism of chemotherapy. It is important to understand that while at low doses, vitamin C acts an as antioxidant, at high doses, vitamin C switches roles, acting as a potent oxidative molecule. Many studies have shown that at high doses, vitamin C is toxic to cancer cells, able to work synergistically with conventional therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation.

Intravenous vitamin C is a preferred method of delivery for patients who need fast acting benefits from high doses of vitamin C. Patients who undergo this type of therapy often experience less significant side-effects from chemotherapy and radiation, and vitamin C can vastly improve quality of life by increasing appetite, energy, raising platelet levels, and reducing pain.

benefits of vitamin C therapy in cancer include:

  • correction of possible deficiency
  • immune modulation & anti-viral
  • cytotoxic to cancer cells
  • support for white blood cells
  • enhanced wound healing & post-surgical recovery
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-depressant & stress support

Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy is a safe and effective treatment aimed at restoring optimal health in cases of heavy metal toxicity. Chelation can be used for arsenic, cadmium, copper, iron, lead, mercury, thallium, and other forms of toxic metal poisoning.

Several chelating agents are available, each having their own mechanism of action and affinity for different metals. Although most commonly known for heavy metal detoxification, chelation therapy is a safe and effective supportive therapy for ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, Autism, diabetes, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and Multiple Sclerosis.

benefits of chelation therapy include:

  • improved wellbeing
  • enhanced sugar metabolism
  • improved heart function
  • improved circulation
  • reduces blood pressure
  • reduces oxidative stress

Intravenous Glutathione

Glutathione is an antioxidant molecule. All cells in the body are capable of producing glutathione, but it is found in the highest concentration in the liver. Glutathione has an important role in the detoxification and elimination of free radicals – molecules produced in the body during normal metabolic function. Free radicals can also enter the body through the environment; accumulation of these compounds results in oxidative stress that damages tissues.

Glutathione provides antioxidant protection for the body’s tissues, including the brain, liver, arteries, lungs and skin, while supporting the immune system. Glutathione levels naturally decline with age!

benefits of glutathione therapy:

  • antioxidant & anti-inflammatory
  • protects from disease
  • anti-aging
  • reduces muscle & joint pain
  • enhances detoxification pathways
  • immune support
  • skin brightening
  • collagen & tissue repair
  • supports athletic recovery
