Intravenous Glutathione Therapy in Vancouver
Glutathione is an essential antioxidant produced naturally by the liver – but can also be found in some meats, fruits and vegetables. As the human body is constantly fighting off a plethora of toxins and chemicals through exposure to environment, poor diets and poor lifestyle choices, glutathione (GHS) is needed to help neutralize and counteract the effects of these harmful toxins. Once GHS levels are depleted, the body becomes more susceptible to illness. Naturopathic doctors give glutathione intravenously to act as an immune system booster, aid in systemic detoxification, and help treat a number of illnesses, such as heavy metal overload, diabetes, anemia, and Parkinson’s disease.
How It Works
Glutathione is crucial for many processes in the human body, including immune system maintenance, tissue building and repair, and making proteins and chemicals needed in the body. It is considered a ‘potent antioxidant’ and helps to eliminate dangerous free radicals. Glutathione binds to toxins in the body through a process referred to as “conjugation” to allow these toxins to be safely expelled. IV glutathione is typically more effective than oral glutathione. Stomach acids and enzymes break down the oral method, rendering it nearly useless. IV glutathione delivers the nutrient directly to the bloodstream and into the cells.
Our IV Glutathione Treatment Options
IV glutathione has been proven to be an important defense against toxins, diseases, radiation, pollutants, and oxidative stress. Low levels of this vital antioxidant has been linked to a number of diseases, including Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer, Parkinson’s disease, AIDS, Atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, male infertility, pregnancy complications, and cataracts. White blood cells are an essential component of the body’s major defense system. Glutathione is needed to optimize their function and help white blood cells to keep fighting against disease. Intravenous glutathione can be used in the treatment of:
- Parkinson’s disease
- Macular degeneration
- Heart disease
- Chronic fatigue
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Lung disease
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Liver disease
- Useful to prevent radiation injury BEFORE treatment is started
- Important chelator of lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic
- Can prevent or reverse alcohol induced fatty liver, cirrhosis, hepatitis
- Improves prognosis of stroke victims
- Useful in any condition where there is oxidative damage such as from toxins.
Why It’s Needed
As we grow older, the natural levels of glutathione in the body become lower and lower at the rate of about 10 percent every ten years. A deficiency in this crucial antioxidant can result in a number of health conditions. Research has shown that delivering glutathione intravenously can make up for this depletion. Only a properly formulated IV therapy can provide the body with the essential building blocks to produce its own sufficient levels of glutathione naturally. IV glutathione begins to work right away, giving the cells a much larger percentage of the compound. It acts as a safe, convenient way to boost your glutathione levels for a healthier life and better wellbeing.
Results of IV Glutathione Therapy
Intravenous glutathione injections have provided remarkable results to patients within hours of administration. When taken with vitamin C, it has been shown to whiten the skin and reduce blemishes, including acne – resulting in a flawless complexion. There is generally no down time and the procedure is typically finished within thirty minutes. Glutathione can also:
- Boost the immune system
- Slow down the aging process
- Increase concentration
- Reduce inflammation
- Increase recuperation after exercise
- Detoxify and enhance the liver
- Increase energy levels
Generally, intravenous glutathione will be administered 1 to 3 times per week over a 1 to 3 month period for maximum clinical benefits. A custom treatment plan will be designed to ensure that you maintain the improvements in your health over time. As the most potent antioxidant, glutathione can benefit everyone.
