Vitamin C & Infusion Therapy
Vitamin C is not only an antioxidant, it is also an activator of the body’s defense system by releasing free radicals from Neutrophils (specialized white cells). This is a normal defense posture when the body’s invaded by extraneous organisms. In a colloquial way, the immunological effect of Vitamin C causes the defense of enemies.
In my practice we use vitamin C with other antioxidants. At our center, we not only give Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, but with other very important antioxidants and liver protective substances such as glutathione, selenium and others. Vitamin C helps eliminate intestinal toxic bi-products and pathogens.
Cardiovascular disease is among the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. In our practice we advise, exercise, stress reduction, and lifestyle changes. Our state of the art assessments include total cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, weight control and other specific tests including HDL, LDL cholesterol, Apolipoprotein, homocysteine, fibrinogen, vitamin and mineral levels, platelet counts, and other clotting indicators as well as blood sugar, insulin, and cardiolipin antibodies as well as hormone assessments, thyroid, DHDA, testosterone and estrogen levels.
IV therapy, a method of infusing vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chelating agents, and antioxidants directly into the vein, is a quick, efficient, safe, and powerful way of administering vital nutrients into the body.
A drip chamber, which prevents air from entering the blood and controls flow rate, enables nutrients to bypass the digestive tract, where any compromised loss of absorption may possibly occur.
Even though oral supplementation is an important factor in any healing regiment, there is no comparison to the effectiveness of an IV therapy session.
