We offer a wide range of services, specializing in nutritional IV therapies, including traditional and integrative diagnostic tests and Lyme disease treatments. When it comes to treatment and prevention of Lyme disease, we believe in finding and treating the root or cause of the problem and not merely the symptoms.
Specialized IV Treatments
Lipid Exchange Using Phosphatidylcholine
A treatment modality originating in Europe named the lipid exchange utilizes the Phospholipid Phosphatidylcholine (PC). This modality was used for the current treatment for Lyme disease of neurodegenerative disorders by Dr. John Foster at the Wellspring Clinic in 2002. PC starts to heal the cell membrane on contact as it itself is the main constituent of cell membranes. When given orally, PC starts to heal damaged intestinal lining in leaky gut syndrome. When given intravenously it readily dissolves in the bloodstream and easily diffuses in the body tissues and organs including the brain as it crosses the blood brain barrier.
As PC courses throughout the body its 2 main actions are to detoxify and rebuild the molecular properties of PC enable it to bind to bio toxins such as mold, bacteria, yeast and excrete them via the liver.
Evidence of the ability of PC to heal the cell membrane is seen in the following 2 observations. Excessive alcohol intake can damage the liver cells thereby releasing the liver enzyme AST, ALT, and GGT into the bloodstream. Also, muscle trauma that damages muscle cells releases the enzyme CPK into the blood stream. These enzymes are typical intracellular and are released when cells break open are damaged. They can be measured by serum blood levels; the higher the levels the greater the damage. Oral or IV therapy with PC gradually over time reduced the levels of these enzymes indicating cellular membrane healing and restoration of proper function.
We use this in conjunction with PC, Glutathione, a naturally occurring protein which in past protects the organs from free radical damage.
Glutathione is a powerful, naturally occurring antioxidant which protects delicate areas of major organs including the brain, eyes, liver and lungs which are most susceptible to free radical damage. Studies show that patients with neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinsons Disease, Alzheimers Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lou Gehrigs Disease and Autism have low glutathione levels which leave certain areas of nerves more susceptible to free radical damage. We also use Glutathione to treat certain liver, eye and lung disorders.
Chelation Therapy is a very safe, clinically effective medical treatment that has been in use for over 40 years. It involves a chelating agent called EDTA, an amino acid complex that binds to toxic heavy metals in the body. EDTA also binds to ionic calcium such as the type found in plaque. EDTA Chelation is given intravenously. After a physical evaluation and laboratory analysis the amount of treatments necessary is determined. Typically Chelation therapy is used for circulatory disorders such as: heart disease, claudication, and carotid artery disease. Many articles have been published and many books have been written about the benefits of Chelation therapy including one by: Elmer Cranton, M.D., a cardiologist, called Bypassing Bypass Surgery.
Intensive Nutritional Therapy
When someone struggles for a long period of time with a chronic and debilitating condition, or if someone is very toxic and weakened by environmental toxic exposure or nutritional depletion, they may need aggressive vitamin and mineral replacement. Our Nutritional IV contains multivitamins, trace minerals, and nutrients in a concentrated solution which replenishes a deficient body and significantly improves energy and stamina. We use our Nutritional IV to treat chronic fatigue, and other deficiency states.
Vitamin C Therapy
One major benefit Vitamin C has on the body is to enhance immune function. In times of physical or emotional stress, a weakened immune system predisposes our body to the grips of infection like the flu of pneumonia. Our Vitamin C treatment contains high doses of ascorbic acid and other vitamins and minerals and effectively stimulates up the bodys immune system so that one can more effectively fight off the offending agent. We use Vitamin C treatment for both acute and chronic infections.
We have developed a pioneering method of clearing the body of heavy metals such as mercury and infections such as Lyme with the use of intravenous and oral lipids along with the use of glutathione in a fast IV push. This therapy is beneficial to those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Autism, Heavy Metal Toxicity, ALS, Alzheimers, Cardiovascular Disease, Stroke, MS, Parkinsons, Chemical Sensitivity and Environmental Illness. IV therapy consists of a five minute lipid exchange followed by an infusion of glutathione.
Many people who suffer with depression, anxiety, migraine, obesity, food or drug cravings, bipolar, chronic fatigue, MS, Parkinson’s, mood swings, autism, seizures and fibromyalgia have neurotransmitter dysfunction. The Neuroregulatory Profile or neurotransmitter test is a very effective way of determining whether an imbalance exists. This simple urine test measures levels of neurotransmitters: Dopamine, Serotonin, Norepinephrine and Epinephrine, Gaba, Glutamate, PEA, Histamine. If the level of one or more of these neurotransmitters is low, amino acid therapy can be given by correcting imbalances by building neurotransmitter levels in the brain.
