Infusion Therapy

Infusion Therapy
In recent years, IV infusions have become the therapy of choice in mainstream preventive medicine and holistic health. Why is IV therapy so popular? The answer is that it's highly efficient due to the immediate bioavailability of the infused products. The minerals, nutrients, and bioactive compounds like vitamins and amino acids are the most potent when delivered directly into your bloodstream. When consumed orally, almost all of these ingredients get digested by our GI system and broken apart by the liver's 2-phase drug metabolism system.

IV infusions deliver almost all active ingredients directly to our body systems. It takes just one minute for blood to circulate from the heart to anywhere in the body. All our blood circulates through the heart in 1 h, the average time of an IV infusion.

When compared to IV infusions, supplements have yet another drawback. Unlike prescription drugs, the quality of supplements is not regulated by FDA. As a result, many orally available vitamins and minerals lack active ingredients and often contain dangerous chemicals. In contrast, compounding pharmacies only sell bioactive components for IV infusions to certified clinics. These pharmacies are subject to FDA oversight while tightly regulated by state pharmacy boards. Typically, the IV components are consistent in concentration, high quality, and lack unwanted and unlabeled chemicals.

Total energy
If a can of Monster is your idea of an energy shot, think again. An IV drip is a way more efficient way to enhance the energy level, boost ATP production in mitochondria and hydrate the body. A combination of multivitamins, vitamin C and cocarboxylase is the core of our energy potion formula.
Hangover & detox
This "day after" hydration drip contains a combination of minerals and vitamins, and also anti-nausea and pain-relief medicine. The base is the physiological Hartman solution with a healthy mix of electrolytes and lactate. The drip also has vitamins B and C and a number of trace elements. We also add Glutathione, the main detox peptide produced in human body. Glutathione absorbs a number of toxins, including acetaldehyde, the alcohol derivative causing hangover. It also has strong anti-inflammatory effect and reduces the load of cytokines, the inflammatory mediators. The problem is that our body does not produce enough glutathione, particularly during hangover.
Allergy and sensitivity relieve
These days, our environment is fills up with thousands of new chemicals every year, which results in more and more allergies and sensitivities: to foods, mold, exobiotics, dust, air pollution etc. In all cases, the immune system is on overdrive, hyperactivated by acute systemic inflammation and signaling by cytokines. Our allergy relieve solution consist of IV drips with fresh ozone, produced instantly from medical grade oxygen. Freshly produced ozone is immediately dissolved in saline (0.9% NaCl) in optimal concentration. Fresh ozone is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory systemic treatments, which effectively removes inflammatory cytokines and other mediators from circulation. The effect is elevated by Magnesium and calcium in the solution.
Mental & memory boost
This drip is mixed specifically for patients with mental disbalance, suffering from anxiety, depression, poor sleep and headaches. These symptoms are eased with slow dripping of lithium, supported by vitamins (B complex, low dose vitamin C) and other minerals (magnesium, selenium).
Heavy metals chelation therapy
Chelating agents, such as EDTA (ethylenediamine-tetraaseic acid) and DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) help to eliminate heavy metals and some other toxins from our body. These compounds bind mercury, lead, cadmium and other ions in large non-toxic complexes (chelates), which then are extracted via urine, sweat and defecation

EDTA is the FDA-approved agent for lead detox, being used for years in both clinical and holistic practice for adults and children. It is applied as its calcium salt, calcium disodium edelate. This form prevents depleting calcium during the chelation. EDTA also binds other metal ions, such as mercury, cadmium, zinc and iron.

DMSO is a well-known bipolar nonprotonic solvent, used in medicine since 1960s. It has an ability to penetrate cell membranes without damage, so it is often used in drug delivery. FDA approved it for symptoms relief in cystitis patients. DMSO also helps in many other inflammatory conditions.

EDTA and DMSO have a synergistic effect when applied simultaneously. We mix them is a potent anti-inflammatory, detox chelating cocktail
Life support
This potent cocktail combines in right proportions the agents for both oxidation (provided by oxygen peroxide), pain relief (procaine) and metabolic booster (Cocarboxylase). This drip is recommended for enhancing energy lowering the inflammation level in the body
Hormone support
A simple drip of trace elements in sodium chloride for hydration and support of endocrinal system
Post-covid revitalization
The common post-covid symptoms are chronic fatigue, loss of appetite and problems with sleep. This drip will help to address all three issues. Vitamin B, high-dose vitamin C and cocarboxylase in sodium chloride solution

High doses Vitamin C
About
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient in diet, a potent antioxidant and immune system modulator. It has many important physiological functions, such as prevention of cell death, building collagen and production of neurotransmitters. High dose vitamin C is approved by FDA for treating vitamin C deficiency, but its off-label use is much broader. First of all, vitamin C, injected intravenously, is known as a potent adjuvant anti-cancer agent since 1980s and the pioneering work by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling. It works both as a direct cytotoxic drug for cancer cells and a compound to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. More recently, high dose vitamin C IV became a staple procedure in treating chronic Lyme disease, fibromyalgia and neurodegenerative conditions.

Glutathione
About
Glutathione (GSH) is a natural tri-peptide produced in human, animals and plants. Glutathione is the major antioxidant metabolite, which prevents the main cellular components from damage from reactive oxygen species (ROSs), toxins, free radicals and heavy metals. In addition, Glutathione is essential in neutralizing formaldehyde and methylglyoxal, toxic metabolites produced under oxidative stress. Glutathione also participates in a number of reactions of central metabolism and serves as a neuromodulator.

Depletion of Glutathione is associated with a number of diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, neurogenerative diseases and ageing.

GSH is produced from natural aminoacids glutamate, cysteine and glycine in many types of cells, but the majority is synthesized in liver. However, glutathione turnover is fast and human need substantial daily resupply of this metabolite, particularly in the case of diseases or heavier toxin load. This makes glutathione one of the most central components of IV infusions.

Benefits
  • Efficient and immediate detox
  • Antioxidant
  • Reduction of heavy metal load
  • Energy boost and fatigue reduction
  • Immediate pain relieve
Multivitamins
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA)
About
ALA is an endogenous metabolite produced by human, a potent anti-oxidant. ALA is often used for treating neuropathology in different disease states, such as diabetes, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, glaucoma, alcohol liver disease. When consumed, ALA is quickly reduced to dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), also an anti-oxidant. Both ALA and DHLA scavenge reactive oxygen species, thus protecting neurons from damage and death. In addition, ALA is a co-factor for dehydrogenase, the major enzymatic complex in mitochondria. DHLA participates in regeneration of vitamins E, C and glutathione in human body.

Benefits
  • Pain reduction
  • Increased insulin sensitivity in diabetes patients
  • Improved neuropathic disfunction, particularly in diabetic patients
  • Better glucose uptake
  • Energy boost due to mitochondrial function
L-carnitine
About
L-carnitine is a natural amino acid derivative, produced in human from lysine and methionine. L-carnitine is a supplement, known as "fat burner", as it moves fatty acids from the cells to mitochondria. There, the fat burns to produce energy in the form of ATP. L-carnitine also plays a role in stabilizing Acetyl-CoA and coenzyme A, the major metabolites in human.

Benefits
  • Helps to burn fat and lose weight
  • Energy boost due to transport of fatty acids to mitochondria
  • Helps to reverse brain decline in neurodegenerative conditions
  • Prevents mental decline
Transfer factor (TF)
About
Transfer factor is a low molecular weight extract from lymphocytes, which transfers antigen-specific immunity to T-cells. As a result, cell-medicated immunity gets a potent boost. TF is used as a primary or adjuvant therapy against bacterial, viral, parasitic infections, immune deficits and autoimmune conditions. TF is particularly good against viral infections. Importantly, TF works well on unknown pathogens, even before their identification.

Benefits
  • Treats viral and fungal infections of known and unknown origin
  • Helps to relieve autoimmune conditions
  • Treats bacterial infections
  • Immune system activation
Vitamin B complex
About
This is a sterile solution comprising the most important vitamins of B complex: Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Pantothenic Acid (B5), Pyridoxine, Pyridoxal, Pyrodoxamin (B6), Niacin, or nicotinic acid (B3), Biotin (B7), Folate, or folic acid (B9) and Cobalamin (B12). All B vitamins play active role in metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and energy metabolism, but there are important distinctions, as well as specific deficiencies.

  • Vitamin B1 is a co-enzyme in many key reactions of carbohydrates and protein metabolism, as well as energy metabolism. Needed for production of cocarboxilase, the major co-enzyme. B1 is necessary for normal growth and development of human cells. Deficiencies of B1 are well-known
  • Vitamin B2 plays an important role in energy metabolism in mitochondria, where it's part of two key co-enzymes.
  • Vitamin B3 is a precursor of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), the major component in human metabolism.
  • Vitamin B5 is an essential vitamin, needed for production of coenzyme CoA.
  • Vitamin B6 is needed in small quantities in over 100 reactions of core human metabolism, including sugar, protein and cholesterol metabolism. Vitamin B6 deficiency is very substantial due to poor diet in many groups
  • Vitamin B7 is sometimes referred to as "hair and skin" vitamin, due to specific issues in case of deficiency. Vitamin B7 plays a role in catabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Mild B7 deficiency often happens during pregnancy
  • Vitamin B9 is needed for proper DNA and RNA metabolism and cell division. Lack of B9 may negatively impact nerve system development
  • Vitamin B12 is cobalt-containing cofactor of DNA synthesis. It is also important for synthesis of myelin (important role in brain development) and red blood cells maturation.
All B vitamins are water-soluble and not stored in the body. They secreted rapidly with the urine and need constant resupply. Mostly, B-vitamins can be re-supplied from food, but it is difficult to keep up with sufficiently rich nutrition. and full Therefore, a well-balanced vitamin B complex is an essential supplement, best delivered in an intravenous infusion.

Benefits
  • Restoration of neural system
  • Faster protein, fat and sugar metabolism
  • Energy boost
  • Fatigue reduction
Cocarboxilase
About
Cocarboxilase is a derivative of vitamin B1 (thiamine), a co-factor for a number of enzymes in central reactions of human metabolism, for example, transketplase and pyruvate dehydrogenase. Cocarboxilase is essential for proper carbohydrates, fat and protein metabolism; its deficiencies may be substantial.

Benefits
  • Balancing of central metabolism
  • Increased energy
  • Improved mood
  • Better heart function
DMSO
About
Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is a solvent with many applications in medicine and healthcare. DMSO was first synthesized by Russian chemist Alexander Zaitsev and now is broadly used in chemistry and medicine. FDA approved using DMSO for treating painful bladder syndrome. It is also applied for a number of autoimmune and infectious diseases and relieve pain of osteoarthritis. DMSO is also a well known adjuvant therapy in alternative cancer treatment, although it should not be used as the main anti-cancer agent. As a sorbent, DMSO is efficient in absorption of toxins, heavy metals and impurities from food and poisoning.

Benefits
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Pain relieve
  • Treating bladder infections
  • Lower blood pressure

Benefits
  • Treats a broad range of viral infections
  • Improves immune system
Mood stabiliser
About
In medicine, it is used for treating mood conditions such as bi-polar disorder, anxiety, depression, lethargy, state of mental confusion. Usually, mood stabiliser is used in combination with other treatments. Mood stabiliser is safe in therapeutic doses, but one needs to follow the dosage prescribed by the doctor.

Benefits
  • Mood improvement
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Mental stress relieve
  • Stronger confidence
Chromium
About
Chromium chloride is an intravenous solution, part of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) protocols. These are the fluids and essential elements the patients need but not able to fill in with food.
Iron
Iron balancing is one of the most important and difficult functions in our body. Lack of iron in different forms leads to acute or concealed anemia and energy loss. In certain cases an iron drip is a necessity (it is always prescribed by a doctor based on tests). Iron is added in the form of ferroin (iron dextran) and delivered slowly and under constant supervision.
