HEALTH & WELLNESS
Deliver vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly to the body for maximum absorption. This allows the nutrients to flood your body and nourish itself at the cellular level. By using this method we can safely deliver larger doses that would not otherwise be tolerated orally. IV vitamin drips can be used both proactively to maintain optimum wellness and also to treat acute and chronic conditions. Some of the specific benefits people may experience include increased energy, enhanced mood, improved sleep, decreased stress and anxiety, increased immunity, hydration, and muscle recovery.
Vitamin B-12 injections are used for memory loss with Alzheimer’s disease. They can also help to boost energy, mood and the immune system overall, which helps to slow the aging process. Vitamin B-12 is known to lower high homocysteine levels, which contribute directly to heart disease. They also help prevent mental illness, sleep disorders, diabetes, depression, stress, fatigue, allergies, asthma, high blood pressure, heart disease, insomnia and high cholesterol. The B-12 injection have also been used to prevent cervical cancer and other types of cancers.
VITAMIN B Complex
B-complex supplements may relieve stress, boost cognitive performance and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, even in people without B vitamin deficiencies. They also aid in carbohydrate and fat metabolism, cell growth, and are vital for neurological function, DNA production and red blood cell development. B vitamins are water-soluble, which means your body does not store them. For this reason, your diet must supply them each day.
Vitamin C is a nutrient found in food and dietary supplements. When taken by intravenous infusion, Vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when the same amount is taken by mouth. It is an antioxidant and also plays a key role in making collagen. Laboratory studies have shown that high doses of Vitamin C may also slow the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon and other types of cancer cells.
Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. It’s a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3.Your body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight. You can also get it through certain foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood.Vitamin D has several important functions. Perhaps the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and facilitating normal immune system function. Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.If your body doesn’t get enough vitamin D, you’re at risk of developing bone abnormalities such as soft bones (osteomalacia) or fragile bones (osteoporosis).

Magnesium sulfate is used to treat abnormal heart rhythms, muscle spasms, body aches and headaches. Magnesium Injection therapy may also relieve anxiety and has been shown to relieve stress.
Phosphatidylserine is a fatty substance called a phospholipid. It covers and protects the cells in your brain and carries messages between them. Phosphatidylserine plays an important role in keeping your mind and memory sharp.
Phosphatidylserine supplements are touted as a natural remedy for various health conditions, including:
Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Age-related mental decline: Phosphatidylserine seems to improve attention, language skills, and memory in aging people with declining thinking skills. Most research has used phosphatidylserine from cow brains. But most phosphatidylserine supplements are now made from soy or cabbage. It is not as well known whether these newer products made from plants have the same benefit. But there is early evidence that plant-derived phosphatidylserine also improves memory in people with age-related memory loss. Also, some research shows that taking a product containing plant-derived phosphatidylserine enriched with the fatty acid DHA helps improve memory and attention in older women complaining of memory loss. The product seems to work best in people with less severe symptoms.
Alzheimer’s disease: Taking phosphatidylserine can improve some of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease after 6-12 weeks of treatment. It seems to work best in people with less severe symptoms. But phosphatidylserine might become less effective over time. After 16 weeks of treatment, progression of Alzheimer’s disease seems to overcome any benefit provided by phosphatidylserine. Most research has used phosphatidylserine from cow brains. But most phosphatidylserine supplements are now made from soy or cabbage. Researchers do not yet know how phosphatidylserine made from these plant sources compares with phosphatidylserine made from cow brains in terms of effectiveness for Alzheimer’s disease.
Improve athletic performance: Taking phosphatidylserine for 6 weeks before playing golf might improve how well a golfer tees off. But it doesn’t seem to reduce stress or heart rate during golf competition. Other research shows that taking phosphatidylserine with caffeine and vitamins might improve mood and reduce feelings of tiredness after exercising. But these improvements are likely to be small, and it’s not clear if the benefit is from phosphatidylserine or other ingredients.
Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD): Research shows that taking plant-derived phosphatidylserine helps improve attention, impulse control, and hyperactivity in children and teens with ADHD.
Stress brought on by exercise: Some research suggests that athletes taking phosphatidylserine during strenuous training might feel better overall and have less muscle soreness. However, other research shows conflicting results.
Depression: There is some early evidence that phosphatidylserine might improve depression in older people.
Sore muscles caused by exercise: Some research shows that taking phosphatidylserine during strenuous training might help reduce muscle soreness after exercise.
L-lysine is an essential amino acid. Amino Acids are known as the “building blocks of protein” and are needed for a number of internal functions, including growth. There are many L-lysine benefits, from its use as a common treatment for cold sores to a potential anti-anxiety supplement. L-lysine can be taken orally or by injection when relying on our diet for sufficient amounts just isn’t enough. L-lysine is important in the creation of carnitine, which converts fatty acids into energy and also lowers cholesterol levels. L-lysine also plays a role in absorbing calcium and helps the body form collagen, which aids in the growth and maintenance of bones and connective tissues including skin. L-Lysine may have the potential to help in the treatment of cancer. One reason scientists search for natural cancer treatments has to do with the way conventional treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation, negatively impact healthy cells along with diseased ones. Amazingly, there have been huge strides recently in this area, as researchers discover more ways that nutrients found in our food and in nature may potentially do just what we need— target malignant cells without killing good ones.
In 2007, scientists at Florida State University studied the effects of “lysine conjugates” on damaged strands of DNA, like the ones found in cancer. This substance can locate a damaged strand by identifying “cleavage” in it (a damaged spot) and cause the rest of the strand to cleave (tear apart) as well. The cell is usually unable to repair this damage, leading to apoptosis, the suicidal death of cells.
What’s most fascinating about the potential of this treatment is how it works alongside specific types of light. The cancer-killing ability of lysine conjugates are only activated when exposed to particular types of light, which allows researchers, and potentially doctors, to inject or place the treatment into the most concentrated location of cancer cells and activate them at their most potentially effective spots.
The scientists conducting the study found results ranging from 25 percent all the way to 90 percent of destroyed cancer cells.
A lysine oxidase was tested against instances of colorectal cancer in mice in 2014. In this study, the injection of lysine oxidase was associated with zero deaths and shrunk solid tumors in significant amounts, signifying this may be a promising form of cancer treatment for colorectal cancer in the future.
Cancers related to bone marrow, such as leukemia, may also meet their match with L-lysine. According to research. In one study, L-lysine injection helped prevent genotoxicity (DNA and RNA damage) in cells exposed to a cancer-causing substance.
myers cocktail IV Therapy
Myers’ cocktail is an intravenous nutrient mixture invented by Baltimore physician John Myers containing magnesium, calcium, various B vitamins and vitamin C that is claimed to be beneficial for a broad range of conditions. Conditions which he found to be responded well by this treatment include acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies and cardiovascular disease. He also observed improvements in athletic performance.
The Myers Cocktail works by increasing the blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond that which can be achieved when supplementing orally. The idea is that many illnesses and conditions are associated with digestive disturbances such as bloating, indigestion and food sensitivities and that people with such conditions may not absorb many of the nutrients needed to return them to good health. Also, many diseases and inflammation cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate, or to require higher amounts for proper healing. When nutrients are given intravenously, the digestion is bypassed. The levels in the bloodstream are temporarily increased so that the nutrients are “coaxed” into the cells, and frequently into the mitochondria where they are active. This temporary boost frequently “kick-starts” the cells, so that energy is produced more efficiently in them. Vitamin C given intravenously has been found to reach blood concentrations more than 50 times greater than what can be achieved when given orally.
In the case of Fibromyalgia, decreased pain can be observed. In other chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, because of the “leaky” nature of the gut, the infusion helps get necessary nutrients into the cells. Chronic asthma and other lung disease, congestive heart failure, and chronic allergic problems may respond with more energy and less symptoms. Patients who get sick often with infections may find an improved immune response, with less susceptibility to viral illnesses.
It is best to prepare for the Myers’ by drinking plenty of water and having food in your stomach before you come in the office. Some patients may experience a general flushing feeling, light-headedness and/or a taste of the vitamins. During the Myers Cocktail IV procedure, a small catheter is inserted into a vein, and the infusion is given very slowly over 20-30 minutes. Side effects are remarkably rare and almost always are limited to local irritation of the vein. The most common sensations are heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), and the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion begins. The cocktail is usually given 1-2 times per week, and beneficial effects are usually felt by the fourth visit. Many patients with chronic conditions choose to continue the infusions every 1-4 weeks or when they feel their energy slipping. Patients vary in the number of treatments needed, but most request infusions one to two times per week. Some patients experience improvement after only one treatment, and many report significant healing by the fourth infusion. People who have chronic conditions may want ongoing treatment of several times per week, or periodically every few weeks to regain their energy.
