Intravenous Therapy (IV) can be used in a variety of ways to supply necessary minerals and nutrients to the body very rapidly. Intravenous simply means "within vein", therefore IV Therapy is the infusion of liquid substances directly into a vein. With IV Therapy, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream through an IV drip. It is a safe, powerful and innovative therapy that supports the resolution of numerous health problems such as infections, fatigue, heart disease and even cancer. Riverbend Integrative Medicine utilizes special blends of nutrients and minerals depending on a patients needs – such as an IV of immune boosting nutrients during an infection.
In this day and age, by now, most people know that vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that has the power to boost immune function, increase resistance to infection, and protect against a wide range of diseases. But there's an entirely different and largely unknown role of vitamin C, and that is its ability, when administered in very high doses by IV infusions, to kill cancer cells (ref). We administer Vitamin C in our cancer patients through IV therapy which allows the introduction of higher amounts of the vitamin than is possible orally. This well researched and safe manner of infusion is useful as a natural form of chemotherapy alone or in combination with conventional chemotherapy.

Chelation therapy is a highly effective treatment for clearing heavy metals, excess calcium, and artery-damaging chemicals from the bloodstream. It involves IV injections of a chelating agent, EDTA, a synthetic amino acid. EDTA binds to heavy metals and minerals in the blood so that they can be excreted in the urine.
Though chelation therapy can reduce the production of free radicals by an estimated million-fold, it is also used in cases other than heavy metal poisoning. Chelation with EDTA can also be used to treat atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by reopening arteries clogged with plaque. They maintain that using chelation for this purpose is an effective and less expensive alternative to coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplasty, and other conventional medical treatments (ref).

Building on the work of the late John Myers, MD, the author has used an intravenous vitamin-and-mineral formula for the treatment of a wide range of clinical conditions. The modified “Myers’ cocktail,” which consists of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C, has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders (ref).
Hydrogen peroxide isn't a household staple without reason; it's an amazing home cure that treats a number of health ailments. Therefore, Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) therapy as many benefits. It fights infection, eliminates toxins, cures bacteria and viruses, and neutralizes germs. With all of these properties, it can be utilized to treat a wide array of common illnesses. Some of the most common ways it is used is in treating sinus infections, cleansing wounds, eliminating parasites, reducing toothaches, detoxing the body, and treating cancer (ref). Cancer is one of the newest applications that has been discovered for hydrogen peroxide. In this case, it oxidizes the unhealthy cells to eliminate the cancer without harming the good healthy cells.
Glutathione is the body's premiere antioxidant, amongst much, much more. We use glutathione IV therapy as a treatment for chronic fatigue, detoxing the liver, autoimmune disorders, environmental sensitivities and more as it plays crucial roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process that neutralizes drugs, chemicals, radiation, metabolic wastes, and other toxins and carcinogens.
