Amen Clinics offers several different types of intravenous therapies depending on patient needs and conditions. These can range from immune system enhancement to detoxification and relaxation.
THE BENEFITS OF IV THERAPY
One of the main benefits of intravenous treatment is that nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream. Intravenous treatments therefore are exceptionally powerful because they circumvent issues with oral administration, including stomach upset, absorption issues, and loss of potency. In addition, since the nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream and avoid the gastrointestinal system, very large doses can be administered without gastrointestinal side effects which can limit dosing. A perfect example of this is vitamin C, which can only be taken in fairly small amounts orally before causing stomach upset. In contrast, very large doses of vitamin C, which can be very beneficial for the immune system, can be administered safely and without stomach side effects with an intravenous delivery route.
IV Therapies have been known to be beneficial for the following conditions:
- Autoimmune Conditions
- Neurological Conditions
- Memory Enhancement
- Lyme disease
- Mold Exposure
- Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Chronic Fatigue
- Low Immune System
Also known as the Myers Cocktail, the CALM IV is a well-known and highly effective IV formulation for anxiety and relaxation. Consisting of high doses of B vitamins and magnesium, along with other nutrients, the calm IV can result in immediate relaxation, lowering of blood pressure, and easing of anxiety.
The ANTIOX IV can consist of glutathione, alpha lipoic acid (ALA), or both, depending on what is best for each patient. Glutathione is one of the body’s most effective antioxidant and detoxifying substances, especially for the brain and liver. Glutathione is a naturally occurring antioxidant and dramatically improves the detoxification and rebuilding process in the body. Alpha lipoic acid is another extremely useful and powerful antioxidant that has been shown in medical studies to reverse nerve damage, and is also useful for treating liver problems including hepatitis. The combination of glutathione and alpha lipoic acid (infused separately) is an extremely powerful antioxidant and detoxification regimen.
For anyone suffering from immune disorders or anyone just needing an immune boost we offer our IMMUNE IV. This IV consists of buffered vitamin C in very high doses. High-dose intravenous vitamin C is no longer antioxidant but in fact turns into a pro-oxidant against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.
A high dose vitamin C and multivitamin/mineral combination that is great for those who are worn down by stress or illness, or those just seeking to stay healthy and energized. The BOOST IV can be followed by the ANTIOX IV for even more antioxidant protection. Great for cold and flu season.
The CLEANSE Combo uses specific chelators like ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) to remove toxic metals from the body including aluminum, cadmium, lead, and more. Many of the toxic metals are potent neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors. This IV can also be used when checking for heavy metals in the body with a “provocation” test.
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a co-enzyme, signal molecule and neurotransmitter that is used by every cell in your body. Clincians having been using intravenous NAD to help individuals detoxify from addictions and chemical dependencies, aid in the reduction of the symptoms of most chronic conditions, and most recently has been used as a potential aging therapy.
PXT can help a range of disorders and is an effective means of detoxifying cell membranes by replacing the bad fats and oils in a person’s membranes with good essential fatty acids, creating younger, healthier membranes. A lipid exchange can reverse age-related changes in the lipid membrane composition, thus rejuvenating all cells.
