Who receives intravenous iron supplementation?

Patients who receive IV iron usually do so because they cannot take oral iron. These include the following:

        Patients who are bleeding in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (the gut) and need to replace iron quickly. (IV iron is absorbed by the body more rapidly than oral iron.)

        Patients who have inflammatory bowel disease (diseases of the intestines that cause pain, diarrhea, and weight loss), and cannot take oral iron because it upsets their GI tract.

        Patients who are on kidney dialysis, who often lose blood during dialysis. In addition, these patients are usually taking an erythropoietin stimulating agent (ESA) and may need extra iron.

        Patients with iron-deficiency anemia who are having high blood loss surgery (> 500 ml) within the next 2 months and need to replace iron quickly. (IV iron is absorbed by the body more rapidly than oral iron.)

        Patients with celiac disease  or (gluten intolerance).

        Cancer patients who have anemia and are taking an ESA.

        Severely anemic patients with Hgb < 12.5

 

 

Artesunate IV for detox and kills parasites

        IV Artemesia: IV Artemesia is part of our Lyme disease protocol in the treatment of the co-infection, Babesia, which expresses similar symtoms as malaria. Artesunate is a form of artemesinin that can be given intravenously. Although oral artemisinin is absorbed relatively well through the intestines, peak plasma concentrations of IV artesunate are 4-5x higher while using less than half the dose of oral artemisinin. These higher concentrations that are attainable through IV administration are likely more beneficial at creating a free radical burst. In clinical trials for the treatment of malaria, IV artesunate has been shown to be safe with a low toxicity profile. Artemesia therapies are contraindicated in pregnancy, especially in the first trimester, and is not recommended with lactation.

 

Meso Silver IVs

MesoSilver is an all natural mineral supplement in the form of nanoparticle colloidal silver. It is a true colloidal silver, which means the majority of MesoSilver consists of silver particles, not silver ions. Learn more. In fact, it has the highest nanoparticle concentration: 80% particles (typical). Others are only 10%. MesoSilver combines small particle size and high particle concentration, a powerful combination of properties, to produce a colloidal silver product that has the highest particle surface area of any colloidal silver product ever tested.

Vitamin C IVs

        Vitamin C is a nutrient found in food and dietary supplements. It is an antioxidant and also plays a key role in making collagen.

        High-dose vitamin C may be taken by mouth or given by an intravenous (IV) infusion(through a vein into the bloodstream). When taken by IV infusion, vitamin C can reach higher levels in the blood than when the same amount is taken by mouth.

        Some studies of IV high-dose vitamin C in patients with cancer have shown improved quality of life, as well as fewer side effects.

        In general, high-dose vitamin C given by IV has caused very few side effects in clinical trials. However, IV vitamin C may cause serious side effects in patients with kidneydisease, G6PD deficiency, or hemochromatosis.

2018 study out of Puerto Rico used 3 days of IV vitamin C in a row to treat Mono.
