IV Therapy

Chelation Therapy


            I have taught the only course of IV therapy with nutrients available for physicians (MD) in the world since 1992, every spring for the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), and since 2007, an IV Workshop in the spring and/or fall for the American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM).  In the past few years, finally other IV courses have begun in the USA, most notable for naturopaths. I've also taught the course in the U.K and Japan. IV therapy with nutrients is an extremely valuable treatment, primarily because we are able to administer very large doses of nutrients, compared to doses that can be absorbed with oral treatment.  Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and certain other nutrients can have an incredibly potent drug-like effect when given directly IV, but without the side effects one often sees with drugs.

            IV therapy with nutrients may be given only a few times, as needed, of even weekly over a period of time.  The benefits depend on individual patients and the problem being treated.  Here is a list of problems we treat with various IV protocols I have developed over 25 years, listed in order of the most commonly used and best effect in our office.  This should not be considered to be a complete list of indications, but will give you an idea of what IV therapy with nutrients can benefit.

1.    Patients who feel generally "unwell" for any number of reasons - patients we commonly see in our office, as an initial "trial" of therapy, usually starting with the Meyer protocol

2.    Asthma, acute and chronic

3.    Chemical Toxicity secondary to any acute or chronic exposure to chemicals, including patients with severe environmental illness, chemical sensitivity, acute or post exposure to chemicals (the glutathione protocol may help any time after)

4.    Peripheral vascular or cerebrovascular insufficiency with or without gangrene or recurrent TIA's - may be used in conjunction with chelation therapy

5.     Adjunctive treatment for cancer (with IV Vitamin C)

6.     Cardiac insufficiency with or without hypertension; intractable angina

7.     Acute or chronic viral infections

8.     Multiple food allergy/intolerance, with or without proven deficiency

9.     Urticaria, acute and chronic

10.  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

11.  Migraine, other headaches

12.  Macular degeneration

13.  Muscle spasm/sprain

14.  Rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative or "reactive" arthritis

15.  Eczema

16.  Pre-operative/pre-radiation therapy

      17. Severe illness of most any variety, such as AIDS and hepatitis

 IV Glutathoine

        We also offer IV glutathoine (originally developed by Dr. David Perlmutter) for Parkinson's disease, other neurological disorders and acute chemical exposure. I have designed a new protocol that can significantly help patients with these conditions.
