Treatment Information

We have eaten so poorly for so many years based on poor Western diet options and habits that we cannot easily correct chronic conditions with proper dieting alone. Intravenous therapies involving vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other natural agents that can bypass a dysfunctional gastrointestinal tract might be able to improve your quality of life quicker and more efficiently, as well as improve ongoing chronic health conditions under our medical care. Many common conditions may benefit from IV Nutritional Therapy, including:

  • Allergies
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Cold/Flu
  • Dehydration
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Headache/Migraine
  • Heart Disease
  • Heavy Metal Toxicity
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Muscle Pain
  • Workout Fatigue

IV Nutritional Therapy Treatment Q & A
Why are we offering IV Nutritional Therapy?

Despite drastically improved living conditions in the United States, the prevalence of malnutrition has climbed to 25-54% among patients admitted to hospitals. Even worse, many people today eating a complete diet are still unable to absorb most macro- and micronutrients due to gastrointestinal problems such as intestinal permeability. Despite modern advances in medicine and surgery, nutrition has regressed due to mass processing of most foods, which harms the gut and makes it more difficult to absorb micronutrients taken by mouth. We can’t really say we are what we eat unless we actually absorb it.

Micronutrients include vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids that serve major roles in metabolic processes, cognitive homeostasis, antioxidant properties, and tissue function. Additionally, many of these ingredients, although typically thought of as just basic nutritional components, can have much more powerful effects when used in certain amounts through intravenous therapy.

Micronutrient deficiency can be attributed to poor diets, obesity, aging, or simply the lower micronutrient concentration in today’s food supply as a result of mass farming. An imbalance of these nutrients has shown to exacerbate many conditions including the exhibiting of key traits of cancer through DNA damage, neuronal decay in the central nervous system, and premature aging through mitochondrial decay. It can also cause fatigue and a general decrease in quality of life.

What conditions can be treated with IV Therapy?

Conditions that can potentially be supported through various IV therapies include malnutrition, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, atherosclerosis, asthma, angina, chronic pain, diabetes, high heavy metal levels, dehydration, gout, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, infections, rheumatoid arthritis, PMS, migraines, macular degeneration, and much more. It is our goal at Living Well Balanced, to detect and treat nutritional deficits to prevent progression of illnesses, improve recovery, or even prevent chronic disease in the first place!

IV Therapy Information
High Dose Vitamin C

In low doses, Vitamin C (or Ascorbic Acid) is an antioxidant that fights against oxidative stress. It also plays an important role in making collagen in our body. On the other hand, high-dose vitamin C has shown to be pro-oxidant, selectively killing cancer and other G6PD deficient cells[1]. It also has some anti-inflammatory activity resulting in suppression of tumor proliferation, angiogenesis, and metastasis[2]. Since Cameron and Pauling first reported its therapeutic effects on cancer, there have been many case reports and clinical trials supporting its use[3]. Also, according to the National Cancer Institute, treatment with high-dose vitamin C slowed the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, malignant mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, and other types of cancer cells[4].

This IV Oxidative Therapy can only be administered through a drip infusion (30-60 minutes). Depending on the severity of your medical condition and health concerns, our Medical Team will recommend either 25gm, 50gm, 75gm or 100gm IV Infusions. If you have questions about Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy at Living Well Balanced, please call our office at 919-926-8890.

Immune Boost

Our Immune Boost Cocktail consists of the same ingredients as a Myers’ Cocktail with much more! It is formulated with magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, selenium, pyridoxine, dexpanthenol, hydroxocobalamin, B-complex (thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, panthenol), ascorbic acid, and sterile water for injection. Note that it includes six different B vitamins! Each one is either a coenzyme or precursor to a coenzyme individually necessary for amino acid formation and key metabolic pathways. There are two additional agents added: glutathione and acetylcysteine. Glutathione is a major antioxidant and detoxifying agent naturally made in our body. Glutathione deficiencies can lead to increased oxidative stress, reduced ability to detoxify, weakened cell membranes, reduced supply of oxygen and nutrients to the cells, and even cell death [5].  These processes will directly affect your immune system which can increase the risk of serious chronic conditions including HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, cancers, liver disease, cardiovascular disease, and more.

Both vitamin C and selenium have antioxidant effects and have demonstrated safety when used as a supplement in aiding the body’s defenses against infections and improving quality of life. Magnesium plays a role in cognitive function, heart health, and calcium transport.

Myers’ Cocktail has been used safely for decades with patients reporting improved quality of life. Patients reported decreased fatigue, depression, migraine, and rhinitis, as well as improvements in measurable symptoms of hyperthyroidism, asthma, and cardiovascular disease [6]. Benefits were often seen with the first infusion but improved with multiple sessions. Another study evaluating the use of Myers’ Cocktail for fibromyalgia showed significantly improved tender points, pain, depression, and quality of life [7].

Depending on your needs, this IV Cocktail can be administered through a slow push (15-20 minutes) or drip infusion (30-60 minutes). This will be determined by you and our Medical Provider.
