Our doctors will work with you to create a treatment plan to meet your health goals. It is likely to feature one or more of our core intravenous services.
Infusions are delivered with a sterile clinical intravenous set while you relax in a comfortable chair. Our nurses will explain the process and look after you while your infusion is administered. This takes from half an hour to two hours, depending on dose. We usually recommend a couple of treatment sessions each week, depending on your condition.
Intravenous Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant; decades of research shows that significant doses help people improve their quality of life and deal better with health conditions such as recurrent infections, cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, arthritis, diabetes, wounds, ulcers and pressure sores.
The digestive system limits how much vitamin C we can absorb from tablets and powders. If your body is under extra stress due to illness or injury, taking vitamin C by mouth is unlikely to get the right amount to the cells that need it.
Intravenous infusion, however, is a proven way to safely deliver high doses of vitamin C.
EDTA Chelation Therapy
Toxic metal removal
Toxic metals like mercury or lead can build up in your body after exposure. Symptoms can be severe and even life-threatening.
Chelation therapy uses a chemical called EDTA to remove toxic metals from your body. EDTA was first used in the 1940s to treat lead poisoning in ship builders and later to remove a range of other toxic metals.
Doctors noticed that patients receiving EDTA chelation for metal toxicity showed improvements in other conditions, notably cardiovascular disease affecting the arteries of the heart.
After decades of widespread international EDTA chelation use, a recent major clinical trial by the US National Institutes of Health showed EDTA chelation patients had a reduction in cardiovascular events. There was a greater reduction in events for those with type 2 diabetes.
Our clinic has safely and effectively delivered intravenous EDTA infusions for over 30 years.
Glutathione is another powerful antioxidant involved in many bodily processes. Glutathione prevents oxidative damage to cells but the body can only make a small amount of it.
Low glutathione levels are associated with cancer, HIV/AIDS, sepsis, trauma, burns, athletic overtraining and starvation. It may also help with some neurological disorders, chemotherapy-induced neuropathy, cystic fibrosis, mercury poisoning. Glutathione is poorly absorbed in oral form, so it is nebulised or administered intravenously.
