Renew Has A Wonderful Menu of Healing IV’s
This Blend of nutrients enhances the immune system, reduces fatigue, helps with seasonal allergies, reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia and works wonders with an acute flare of asthma.
The Myers’ Cocktail is named for the late John Myers, M.D. who used intravenous injections of nutrients to treat many chronic conditions. Conditions that he found responded well to this treatment include acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies and cardiovascular disease. He also observed improvements in athletic performance.
There are so many illnesses and conditions associated with digestive disturbances such as bloating, indigestion and food sensitivities which are signs of an unhealthy gut which impairs absorption of nutrients vital to maintain optimal health. Further, inflammation and many diseases require higher amounts of vitamins and minerals for proper healing. When nutrients are given intravenously, the problematic gut absorption is bypassed. The higher nutrient levels in the bloodstream are immediately available to the mitochondria that produce energy in each cell. This temporary boost frequently “kick-starts” the cells and your energy is produced more efficiently.
Some patients feel an energy boost lasting days or weeks. In the case of fibromyalgia, decreased pain can be observed. Patients who frequently get infections may find an improved immune response, with less susceptibility to viral illnesses.
A Myers cocktail is usually given 1-2 times per week, and beneficial effects are usually felt by the fourth visit. Many patients with chronic conditions choose to continue the infusions every 3-4 weeks or when they feel their energy slipping.
HIGH DOSE IV VITAMIN C
High dose IV vitamin C has been used to treat infections and boost immunity for many years. It is proven to work through the process of oxidation. It stimulates the production of hydrogen peroxide in the tissues.
Vitamin C (ascorbate, ascorbic acid) has many vital functions in the body. It is a major water-soluble antioxidant that also increases extracellular collagen production and is important for proper immune cell functioning (Hoffman, 1985; Cameron, et al., 1979). It also plays key roles in L-carnitine synthesis, cholesterol metabolism, cytochrome P-450 activity, and neurotransmitter synthesis (Geeraert, 2012).
Vitamin C is water-soluble, and is limited in how well it can be absorbed when given orally. While ascorbate tends to accumulate in adrenal glands, the brain, and in some white blood cell types, plasma levels stay relatively low (Hornig, 1975; Keith & Pelletier, 1974; Ginter, et al., 1979; Kuether, et al., 1988). Data by Levine and coworkers indicate that plasma levels in healthy adults stayed below 100 µM, even if 2.5 grams were taken when administered once daily by the oral route. (Levine, et al., 1996). New liposomal preparations can provide slightly higher serum levels in oral form.
With IV infusion vitamin C peak concentrations over 10 mM can be attained (Casciari, et al., 2001; Padayatty, et al., 2004) without significant adverse effects to the recipient. Vitamin C, at normal physiological concentrations (0.1 mM), is a major water-soluble antioxidant (Geeraert, 2012). At concentrations on the order of 1 mM or higher, however, high dose IV Vit C cause a build-up of hydrogen peroxide, which is preferentially toxic to bacteria, viruses, molds, and tumor cells (Benade, et al., 1969; Riordan, et al., 1995; Casciari, et al., 2001; Chen, et al., 2005; Frei & Lawson, 2008), often leading to appropriate cell death (apoptosis).
