Back in the ‘olden days’ we learned that severe vitamin deficiencies could cause serious and even fatal conditions like scurvy, pellagra, rickets and beriberi. Such things are extremely rare now, of course, but modern research is revealing that vitamin deficiencies can be a risk factor for common chronic diseases – cardiovascular disease, colon and breast cancer, fibromyalgia, osteopenia and fractures, dementia, neuropathy and more.
Recent studies recommend vitamin supplementation for optimal health and disease prevention for everyone, but people with chronic health issues have even greater needs. A person with a chronic illness needs treatment of their ailment at the root cause, but also needs the enhanced nutrition that is necessary to support the healing process. IV Nutritional Therapy can do both. Compared to diet and/or oral supplements, the higher serum concentrations of nutrients achieved through IV Nutritional Therapy can produce marked improvements in shorter time frames.
Some IV Nutritional Therapy treatments for disease prevention include the traditional “Myers Cocktail”, (B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, calcium, Vitamin C). Anti-oxidants like Glutathione and CoQ10, amino acids, minerals and other ‘micronutrients’ can also be added. These ingredients are also used to support and restore a healthy environment for those with chronic illness. Sometimes, even a “perfect diet” and oral supplements simply can’t provide enough nutrition. Digestion is often compromised/incomplete when health is poor. Many prescription drugs deplete the body of vital nutrients or prevent absorption. Radiation, chemotherapy, and other cancer treatments have well known and devastating systemic side effects.
ROC02Lab offers preventive IV Nutritional Therapy as well as specific treatments for chronic conditions and disease, all based on the latest medical research and treatment protocols. (Of course, you should consult with your physician before beginning any complementary therapy!)
High Dose Vitamin C for Cancer Patients
Laboratory studies suggest that high levels of vitamin C may kill cancer cells. Research shows that blood levels greater than 1,000 micromoles per liter are toxic to cancer cells. (These levels cannot be achieved by taking oral vitamin C.) IV Vitamin C therapy has also been shown to increase the effectiveness of certain cancer treatments while protecting the body from some side effects of chemotherapy and even improving the outcome of radiation treatments. Cancer patients using High Dose IV Vitamin C with traditional medical therapies report fewer side-effects and an improved quality of life.
Mistletoe Treatment for Cancer Patients
Similar to High Dose Vitamin C, Mistletoe Treatment has been shown to improve quality of life, increase the tolerability of chemotherapy, and exert a benefit on tumor control and survival. Doctors reported long-term disease stability and improvements in patients’ general condition, vitality, strength, thermal comfort, appetite, sleep, fatigue, pain from bone metastases, and breathing difficulties from some lung cancers. Also patients’ emotional and mental condition was reported to have improved. Mistletoe extracts contain a variety of biologically active compounds which enhance the performance of anticancer drugs, stimulate the immune system, and inhibit and decrease tumor growth. IV Mistletoe Therapy may particularly support patients in advanced disease stages to help stabilize and improve quality of life.
PK Push for ALS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, Lyme
The PK Push is an intravenous technique for supplying the correct proportion of fats and oils in a bioavailable form to replenish cell membranes and membranes within cells. Named after Dr. Patricia Kane, this therapy is also known as Phospholipid Exchange Therapy or IV lipid infusion therapy. Phosphatidylcholine, glutathione and folic acid are the main nutrients delivered.
Poor cell membrane health is associated with chronic illness. Conditions like cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, liver disease, autoimmune disease, mood disorders, migraines and multiple neurodegenerative disorders, dementia & memory loss can be dramatically improved by replenishing the cell membranes with healthy phospholipids. In a recent study, results indicated significant and sustained clinical neurological improvement.
The PK Push can improve overall cellular function as well as the transport of important nutrients into the cell and the elimination of common toxic compounds such as heavy metals, organic pollutants and chemicals. The PK Push has the ability to dramatically improve the outcomes of patients with a wide range of disorders such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, Multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, epilepsy, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, autism, bipolar disorder, seizures, cardiovascular disease, and more.
IV Nutritional Therapy for chronic disease is not meant to replace traditional medical treatment, but research has shown improved patient outcomes and enhanced quality of life when IV Nutritional Therapy is added to the treatment plan.
