Nutritional Balance

Intravenous (IV) Nutrition

Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of administering vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into a patient’s bloodstream. When nutrients are given orally they must be digested and absorbed through the stomach and the intestines. However, many nutrients may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function; some nutrients may not be given in high doses orally, like magnesium and vitamin C, as they will cause diarrhea. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition: much higher doses may be used without adverse effects.

Nutrients used:

Glutathione: Glutathione is a sulfur-containing tripeptide that is composed of cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid helps to detoxify the body and neutralize free radicals while supporting the immune system.  Reduced L-glutathione, most commonly called glutathione or GSH, is the most powerful naturally occurring antioxidant in all human cells, and is often referred to as the body’s “master antioxidant.  It is known for its role in providing antioxidant protection for the body’s tissues, including the arteries, brain, heart, liver, lungs, and skin. Glutathione levels decrease as the body ages.

All cells in the human body are capable of synthesizing glutathione. But the highest concentration of glutathione is found in the liver, making it critically important in the detoxification and elimination of free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive compounds created in the body during normal metabolic functions; they can also enter the body through the environment. Accumulation of these compounds can result in oxidative stress, which occurs when the generation of free radicals in the body exceeds the body’s ability to neutralize and eliminate them.

Metabolically, glutathione has many functions. As previously mentioned, glutathione plays a substantial role in the functioning of the body’s immune system. Its antioxidant property makes it vital to white blood cells (lymphocytes)-as it allows them to reach their full potential during the oxygen-requiring activity of the body’s immune response.

White blood cells in their immune response aid in detoxification of the body-and as glutathione levels decrease, so does the body’s ability to eliminate toxins. This leads to the death of white blood cells-thereby weakening the body’s immune system.

Other antioxidants in the body depend on glutathione as well. Glutathione recycles vitamins C and E after they have been oxidized-therefore playing a decisive role in their normal function.

ENVIRONMENTAL OXIDATIVE STRESSORS THAT CAN DEPLETE GLUTATHIONE INCLUDE:

  • Ultraviolet and other radiation
  • Heavy metals
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Exhaust from motor vehicles
  • Household chemicals
  • Dietary Factors
  • Other environmental toxins

Myer’s cocktail: Myers’ Cocktail is a powerful blend of vitamins and minerals designed for IV use. It was originally developed in the 1970s by Dr. John Myers, a Maryland physician. While the exact ingredients can vary depending on needs of the patient, the formula usually contains:

  • Calcium
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Vitamin B-6
  • Panthenol (B5)
  • B-Complex
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium

Although Dr. Myers, the inventor of the cocktail, originally had one formula, that formula has since evolved. Now, doctors will often customize the Myers’ Cocktail according to a patient’s particular needs, adding or deleting nutrients as appropriate.  At en Health Matters Dr. Thomas customizes the ingridients depending on patients health problems and nutritional deficiencies. The “Myers Cocktail” has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migranes, fatigue, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular disease, depression/anxiety, and other disorders.

Phospholipids: Phosphatidycholine and sphingomyelin are the 2 major phospholipids on the outer leaflet of every cell in the body. The higher the content of sphingomyelin the more compromised cell membrane function. Stabilization of membrane phospholipids may be achieved with phosphatidylcholine supplementation (oral and IV)

Phospholipid therapy has been shown to treat numerous disorders including:

  • Environmental toxicity/illness –
  • Post Stroke
  • Post Oxygen Deprivation
  • Neurological Disease
    • Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Parkinson’s
  • Epilepsy, Seizure Disorders
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Substance Abuse
  • Environmental toxicity/illness –
    • Mold Toxicity
    • PANDAS
    • Neurotoxicity (chemicals, microbial infection, heavy metals, pesticides)
  • Resistant Infectious illness
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP)
  • Behavioral and Learning Disorders
    • ADD, ADHD
  • NeuroPsychiatric
    • Mood disorders, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia,
