Our staff are trained in IV cannulation and infusion. Intravenous (IV) therapy is the safest, and fastest, way for substances to reach the bloodstream. These substances can include vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other therapeutic compounds. Using IV infusions you can be sure that 100% of the infused substance is being absorbed, this compares very favorably to the absorption rate of 55% for a compound given orally.
Novomed Centers has long been using IV vitamin therapies to manage medical conditions, such as migraine, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. This technique also provides a clinically advanced way of detoxing the body and enhancing the immune system.
We can now extend this expertise to the home care setting, enabling safe and effective administration of IV therapy, typically in less than one hour, to patients within the comfort of their own homes.
The available options for IV infusion are:
- Alkaline boost – Sodium bicarbonate
Sodium bicarbonate is delivered, via IV, to put the body into a more alkaline state. Once in an alkaline state the body is better able to recognise and detoxify viruses, bacteria and fungi.
- Liver detoxification – Phosphatidylcholine
The liver plays a fundamental role in processing all that we take into our bodies. It is via the liver that any supplements and vitamins that we consume are metabolized for use by our cells. Phosphatidylcholine is administered to assist with detoxification in the liver, an essential process in maintaining the health of this organ. As an additional benefit the IV delivery of phosphatidylcholine results in healthier cholesterol levels.
- Inflammation repair – Hydrogen peroxide
When administered via IV, hydrogen peroxide is oxidised, and this process enhances tissue repair, regulates cellular respiration and growth, improves immune function and rejuvenates your hormone system. This therapy can be used to treat a range of medical conditions, including arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue, depression, chronic inflammatory disease, autoimmune disease, multiple sclerosis, varicose veins and fractured bones.
- Heavy metal detox – Chelation therapy (EDTA)
Chelation therapy, or the administration of EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is an innovative way of improving circulation to the legs, heart and other organs, preventing the narrowing of arteries (atherosclerosis). Also called heavy metal detoxification, it is fundamental in removing heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium and arsenic, from the body.
- Vitamin cocktail – Vitamin IV therapy
The main example of vitamin IV therapy is the administration of the popular ‘Myers’ cocktail’. This is a mix of magnesium, calcium, vitamin B and vitamin C, which, when delivered via IV, increases energy and provides a boost for better health. Vitamin IV therapy can also improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, and enhance your immune system.
- Ozone therapy
During ozone therapy ozone gas (oxygen) is delivered to the body, resulting in oxygenation. Ozone gas is usually dissolved in a sample of your own blood and infused back via IV. Useful for fighting infection and enhancing the immune system, it also improves wound healing and deactivates viruses and bacteria.
- Antioxidant fix – glutathione IV therapy
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant. It is normally present in all the cells within the human body, however, levels can be reduced by poor nutrition, exposure to toxins, stress and age. Glutathione IV therapy strengthens the immune system, enhances DNA repair and aids in the detoxification of drugs, chemicals, radiation and metabolic waste.
