IV Therapy

If you want a great meal, you don’t go to a fast food joint. So when it comes to supporting your health with IV drip therapies, why would you opt for just another chain of “medical spas” offering what amounts to fast food medicine?

The history of IV drip therapy stretches back as far as the 17th century, as science was first recognizing the miracle of the human circulatory system. Yet the kinds of wellness therapies available today date back only about 100 years or so.

More Than Just Vitamin Therapy

Where chain clinics tend to equate IV therapy with vitamin therapy, there are so many more options available than protocols like the Myers’ Cocktail and vitamin C drips!

In our West Los Angeles clinic, we offer all those permutations, of course, as well as amino acid, glutathione, phosphatidylcholine, and other nutrient-based drips.

This kind of delivery system can be far more effective than just supplementing with pills, powders, and other medicaments. The nutrients go straight into your circulation and are more fully absorbed, put to use by the tissues that need them.

We also offer options such as IV ozone and hydrogen peroxide, which increase oxygen in your bloodstream where it can be delivered to your needy cells. Such drips may be helpful for both dealing with infection and general detox, as well.

Chelation with EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS is available, as well, to support the detoxification of heavy metals such as mercury and lead. High quality research suggests that ETDA chelation may also helpful in the treatment of heart disease, especially among diabetics. There’s also good evidence that EDTA may help enhance brain function and stimulate mitochondrial activity and optimize nitric acid production.

Sharper thinking, more energy, and a reduction of oxidative stress? What could be better than that?

Treating Chronic Health Conditions with Drip Therapies

While many people who opt for IV drip therapy do so to support and enhance their current state of health – including the therapy as part of an overall healthy and active lifestyle – others turn to the therapy as part of their treatment for long-term chronic health conditions.

Clinical reports on just the Myers’ Cocktail, for instance, suggest significant improvements in conditions ranging from asthma and acute migraines to chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia; upper respiratory tract infections and chronic sinusitis to heart conditions and hyperthyroidism.

Chelation, C drips, glutathione, ozone, and phosphatidylcholine have been shown to be good potential supports in the treatment of chronic Lyme disease.

Similarly, there’s evidence that IV ozone may be helpful with respect to various autoimmune and neurological disorders, as well as the conditions mentioned above.

The key is to get the right therapy in the right amounts for the specific condition in a specific individual. In our holistic clinic, conveniently located between Santa Monica and Olympic Boulevards and not far off the 405, we customize every treatment to every individual. Dr. Joe’s mindful, gentle, and caring manner shows through in every aspect of providing our patients with the information, therapies, and support they need to meet their specific health goals.
