Intravenous Therapies and Ozone

We use several different IV therapies to treat many different conditions.

Generally, injections are administered once or twice a week. Patients usually feel the effects by the third or fourth treatment. Chronic conditions may want to continue with the injections weekly or monthly, as directed by your doctor. 

Myers Cocktail
Dr. John Myers, a physician from Baltimore, Maryland pioneered the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins and minerals. Dr. Alan Gaby has continued his work and discovered that many acute and chronic conditions benefited from this treatment. A Myers Cocktail is an intravenous infusion of vitamins and mineral, particularly vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, and B-vitamins. It may be administered as an IV push or as an IV drip. The basic formula is made with the following: • Sterile water • Vitamin C • Magnesium chloride • Calcium chloride • Vitamin B12 • Vitamin B6 • Vitamin B5 • B-Complex


High Dose Vitamin C Infusions
This is a larger dose of Vitamin C and other vitamins over a longer period of time – 1.5 to 3 hours.

Chelation Therapy
For Cardiovascular Health, Chelation therapy is a safe, effective and non-invasive way to break down the plaque blocking your arterial walls.  The chelator acts like a claw grabbing these toxins and allowing them to be excreted by the body through the kidneys.

Ozone Therapy 
Oxygenation is critical to our health. As we age, our bodies become less efficient at transporting and using oxygen. This can impair vitally important chemical reactions necessary for health. Ozone therapy stimulates oxygenation, improves energy production and metabolism, modulates our immune system, and acts as a direct anti-microbial agent. 

Ozone therapy can be administered through a variety of methods, such as: 
Major Auto-Hemotherapy (MAH)A method of extracting blood and mixing with ozone gas before reinfusing the blood into the patient; considered a systemic treatment Indications: chronic infections (viral, bacterial, fungal), compliment to cancer treatment, cystitis, autoimmune disease, general immune system stimulation.
Prolozone A method of combining ozone injections with prolotherapy. Indications: torn ligaments and damaged cartilage.
Ozone Bagging A method of applying ozone transdermally, using an ozone approved limb bag. Indications: microvascular injury/gangrene, skin or bone infection
Topical Ozone Gel A method of applying ozone topically, using ozonated olive oil, to skin ailments. Indications: fungal infections, wounds, eczema, and shingles.
