IV Nutrition Therapy for Infections

IV Nutrition Therapy for Infection

Recently, I traveled to Vancouver, BC for a conference on Clinical Applications and Advanced Topics of IV Nutrient Therapies in Oncology. In the back of my mind, I was concerned about the potential dangers of the Coronavirus. It was all over the news, and there have been many warnings about traveling. I did not initially believe these stories. Every year, they have something else to cause us to worry and to make the stock market fluctuate, so that rich people can buy stocks and bonds cheap. I have been alive long enough to see these trends, over and over.

It suddenly became real to me, as I sat on the plane next to a young man who was obviously of Asian descent. He happened to be wearing a mask. I began to panic when I looked down onto his computer. There were very definitely Chinese symbols on the laptop. This went on for 5 hours as I watched him sneeze and remove his mask and act like a typical passenger.

My rational brain took over and I said what are the chances? I then arrived at my hotel room.......which was right in the middle of Vancouver's China town section!   Everyone had masks on!

Naturally, when I came home, I developed what felt to be one of the worst viral type illnesses that I have personally experienced in a very long time. It truly felt ominous. I knew I was in for a battle! It had to be the Coronavirus!

Luckily for me, my wife, Dr Amy was right there with an IV Nutritive Bag. She administered it and I went to bed. Much to my surprise, in the morning, I felt about 70% better. As the day went on, I could feel myself relapse. I was very busy, and I felt so good that I really pushed myself. She wisely followed up again that night with another bag. Then the next day, it was over. I was no longer ill.

How could this be? They always say there is no cure for the common cold. You just have to use supportive care for viruses and let them run their course. Now, it is frowned upon for doctors to give antibiotics for illness that are not bacterial in nature (90% of all upper respiratory tract infections are viral).


The answer is simple. Glutathione. Glutathione is the body’s natural antioxidant and is also a very powerful anti-viral. It is one of the ways that we fight off the oxidative damage that comes with stress. Stress can come from exercise, or from being ill, or anything really. Our immune cells and every cell in our body depends upon the Mitochondria that exist inside of these cells. They are the energy centers. They produce what is known as Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This is what every cell in our body uses for energy. Without it, our cells stop functioning properly. Including our immune cells.

When we are sick, when we exercise heavily, when we are cold, or when we are emotionally stressed, this Glutathione system easily becomes overwhelmed. Our IV's help to replenish the Glutathione and to get rid of oxidative damage.

By the way, I forgot to mention that in our Vancouver conference I learned about IV therapies that were utilized way before antibiotics were even invented.

Hydrogen Peroxide is how the body naturally kills off invading organisms. It also increases the available oxygen to tissues to aide in healing.

Hydrochloric Acid, (that’s right Hydrochloric Acid)– in very small amounts, naturally, has long been used to decrease the Ph in the blood which causes the white blood cells to become more active. This allows them to become more effective at recognizing and defending against foreign invaders. These were very accepted and effective therapies long before antibiotics were invented. This therapy has been used for bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses.

Patients suffering from Epstein-Barr infections, candidiasis, influenza, Lyme disease and its underlying infections may all benefit from these therapies along with High dose Vitamin C therapies. These are indeed universal treatments because they increase oxygen availability to the tissues. When used together with high dose Vitamin C they are very effective.

Can I say that we have found a cure for the common cold? I’m not ready to go that far yet, but all I can tell you is that the research is there, and I am back to 100%.
