Intravenous Therapies at Ayurved & Naturopathic

One of the practices at Ayurved & Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Calgary is intravenous therapy. This therapy involves injecting liquid substances like vitamins, minerals, amino acids or other medications directly into a vein to be quickly absorbed by the body. Certain disorders like arthritis, muscle pain and inflammation, migraines, viral infections, heart problems and hardening of the arteries can be alleviated with intravenous drips.

Vitamins and Minerals

Nutritional supplements are a valuable addition for people with digestive system disorders and diets that lack the required nutrients. Good quality multivitamins, minerals, amino acids and other supplements are used to bolster depleted immune systems. Injections and intravenous solutions are available in:

  • B12
  • B Complex
  • Vitamin C
  • Meyers Cocktail

The concentrations are at a therapeutic level because they are absorbed directly into the blood, bypassing the digestive organs. These therapies can benefit certain groups and people with chronic conditions including women and vegans and those suffering from chronic fatigue, cancer, depression, alcohol and drug abuse, PTSD and chronic and stress-related illnesses.

Chelation Therapy

EDTA is a synthetic amino acid, a chelator that binds to heavy metals and to plaque adhering to the arteriole walls and is then excreted through the urinary system. The protocol for the infusion of EDTA is set by the American College of Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), a professional association for medical doctors. Chelation is an important therapeutic intervention for these medical conditions:

  • Circulatory disorders
  • Arteriosclerosis
  • Angina
  • Claudication
  • Muscle spasms
  • Abnormal calcium deposits
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Toxicity from heavy metals
  • Toxicity from chemotherapy
  • Toxicity from drug addiction and alcoholism

EDTA and other chelating agents such as: DMPS. DMSA, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) administered intravenously to eliminate heavy metals including:

  • Arsenic
  • Lead
  • Cadmium
  • Mercury

Oxygen Therapy

Ozone and hydrogen peroxide are administered as an adjunct to and separate from other IV therapies. Dr. Otto Warburg M.D. observed that cancer cells have a lower respiration rate than normal healthy cells when exposed to ozone. His research revealed that cancer cells prefer a low-oxygen environment (anaerobic) and by saturating the tissues with higher oxygen levels (aerobic), abnormal cell growth would be retarded or killed. Oxygen is necessary for healthy tissues and counteracts:

  • Cancer
  • Candidiasis
  • Arthritis
  • Bacterial infections
  • Pathogens
  • Viruses

Hydrogen Peroxide

Produced by the body naturally, hydrogen peroxide is used systemically throughout the body to help regulate all living cell membranes. It is necessary in hormonal production and the regulation of blood sugar, maintaining nervous system integrity, operation of brain function and is an integral part of the defense system that kills:

  • Bacteria
  • Parasites
  • Viruses
