If you’ve ever had a hospital stay, you’ve probably had one.
An IV port in your hand or arm, attached to a hanging bag filled with saline.
It’s standard procedure for getting you hydrated fast. They’re also used for drugs or anything that needs to get in your bloodstream reliably and quickly.
I’m not a fan of needles. Maybe you’re not either. But the evidence is piling up around high dose, nutritional treatments that you don’t take by mouth.
They stick them in your arm.
What makes this so powerful is by infusing nutrients directly into your blood, you bypass the stomach. This allows for much higher doses that can’t be absorbed or tolerated normally.
For example, you can raise blood levels of vitamin C 25X higher with an IV treatment than you ever could with a tablet or pill.
And this is important. Because IV vitamin C therapy has an almost 75-year track record of safe, effective use for a wide range of illnesses. It can be a lifesaver for things like shingles, Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr and even cancer.
If you’re feeling a flu or other illness coming on, this is one way to beat it back, and do it very fast.
Magnesium is also very powerful when given this way. This is especially true if you’re having a heart attack. If you ever find yourself hospitalized and a heart attack is suspected, do whatever you can to insist on getting a magnesium drip.
The death rate for people who got magnesium fell by 24% vs. those who didn’t get it. And years later, the death rate was still over 20% lower.
Magnesium can also be helpful for irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias) and even asthma.
Another nutrient that responds well to IV use is glutathione. This is the body’s premier antioxidant, and it’s hard to raise blood levels orally. But IV glutathione has been used as a treatment for neurological disorders, MS, chronic fatigue and Parkinson’s.
If there’s a problem with IV nutrient treatments, it’s sometimes finding a doctor who will be open to doing them isn’t easy. One resource to find an open-minded doctor in your area is www.acam.org.
I haven’t tried this myself, but I have friends and family members who have. And they report that IV vitamin C is very energizing.
Plus, most centers make it a very relaxing experience, with comfy chairs and movies or other entertainment.
Not your typical doctor visit. But then again, a lot of the best, most healthful things aren’t.
