IV therapy

Intravenous (IV) treatment is a pillar of holistic medicine, providing a direct and effective method of delivering vital nutrients into circulation, bypassing the GI system. 

IV treatment is used for various objectives including the reduction of systemic inflammation, arterial plaque, pain, nutrient imbalances as well as targeting cancer metabolism, biotoxins, viruses, bacteria, and immune system regulation. Additionally, IV therapy can be used for regenerative purposes, including enhancing mitochondrial functionality, stimulating cellular repair, oxygenating the body, filtering and removing toxins (chemicals, heavy metals and other biotoxins), reducing free radical damage, repairing cell membranes, eliminating senescent cells. 

We offer a variety of IVs at Mitogenesis.  However, all IVs are customized to a person’s individual needs.

Botanical IV Therapy

There are many beneficial botanical IVs employed at Mitogenesis.  Some examples include Quercetin, EGCG, Curcumin, Artemesinin, and Resveratrol. 

Quercetin is a natural antioxidant found in foods like broccoli, apples, berries, and green tea. It is antimicrobial, and antifungal.  It helps regulate and optimize the immune system. When synergistically combined with vitamins such as C and D, its immune-boosting abilities are enhanced. Quercetin can also calm mast cell function, reducing common allergies. Quercetin can also modulate inflammatory pathways. It is a potent antioxidant, and it scavenges different particles in the human body called free radicals, which cause damage to cell membranes, alter the DNA, and eventually result in the death of cancer cells. Antioxidants have the power to neutralize free radicals. This process will decrease and even assist in preventing some of the damage free radicals cause.  

EGCG is a potent polyphenol sourced from green tea that boasts powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Research highlights EGCG's potent anticancer properties, inhibiting tumorigenesis through various mechanisms. It curbs tumorigenesis by addressing hyperinsulinemia and reducing inflammation. Simultaneously, EGCG combats tumor growth by stopping angiogenesis. Further studies reveal that EGCG's phenol rings function as robust electron traps and free radical scavengers, suppressing reactive oxygen species and alleviating oxidative stress. Its ability to combat oxidative stress is documented in many studies, alongside its role in enhancing mitochondrial function. EGCG also targets viruses, mold, fugus, yeast, and bacteria, making it an excellent choice for chronic infections. Furthermore, its robust anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties suggest it could benefit and modulate inflammation. 

Curcumin is an active ingredient in Turmeric and is renowned for its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. It offers various health benefits, from combating aging and regulating blood sugar to supporting brain health, serving as an antimicrobial/antifungal/antiviral agent, and targeting cancer. Reasearch has shown that curcumin has been able to improve immunity, induce apoptosis (cell death) of cancer cells, decrease systemic inflammation, modulate the production of growth factors and enzymes supportive of cancer cells, and inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells.  

Artemisinin is a by-product of the plant Artemisia Annua (sweet wormwood), which is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine. Research has shown Artemisinin to be an effective treatment for various chronic infections and Cancer. Its effects are synergistically enhanced with administered with high dose IV vitamin C.

Resveratrol is a naturally occurring chemical released by plants as a response to stress or threats. It serves as a mechanism of self-defense for plants, and researchers have found potential benefits in its application for human health. Resveratrol functions as a safeguard for the DNA in our body cells. As a potent antioxidant, its primary role is to protect cells from potential damage caused by free radicals—unstable atoms that can harm cellular structures. By neutralizing these harmful molecules, Resveratrol plays a crucial role in maintaining cellular health and integrity. In particular, resveratrol has been shown to support brain and heart health, repair cellular damage, reduce systemic inflammation, and promote detoxification. 

Amino Acid Based IV Therapies

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and are essential for the basic functionality of our bodies.  Because of this, intravenous amino acids — since they bypass the gut, offer many benefits:

  • Optimal mitochondrial function

  • Regulation of apoptosis and autophagy

  • Counteracting epigenetic influences

  • Influencing electron transport pathways

  • Managing cell senescence

  • Tapping into the body's innate ability to heal itself

  • Targeting root causes for comprehensive healing

  • Synergistic effect with other treatments and lifestyle choices.

  • Immune system regulation

  • Inflammation reduction

  • Wound healing

  • Immune function optimization

  • Anti-aging effects

  • Antimicrobial properties

  • Wound healing and tissue repair

  • Anti-inflammatory

Nutritional IV Therapies

In addition to amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are also beneficial therapies for cancer, CIRS, and autoimmune diseases.  

Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant to help neutralize harmful free radicals and minimize oxidative stress. It supports the immune system, reducing inflammation, and possessing antiviral and anticancer properties. Studies demonstrate that high-dose IV vitamin C causes apoptosis of cancer cells, slows tumor growth, inhibits hyaluronidase (an enzyme used by tumors to metastasize), and induces the production of hydrogen peroxide intracellularly (which is toxic to cancer cells due to their deficiency in the enzyme catalase), and reduces the likelihood of coinfections. Beyond its applications for cancer, IV vitamin C has antimicrobial anti-viral, antifungal, and anti-parasitic properties, bolstering the body's defenses against infections. This makes vitamin C an important treatment for individuals with chronic viral infections, Lyme Disease, CIRS, and Mold Toxicity. Additionally, Vitamin C' is also a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.

PC or Phosphatidylcholine, a phospholipid, is a vital part of the cell membranes. In the case of chronic and acute illness, the amount of PC in the cell membrane reduces, impairing many cellular functions. Therefore, IV phosphatidylcholine is essential for repairing the integrity of the cellular membrane.  In addition, to cellular membrane repair, PC can also be used to improve the skin's appearance and remove fatty plaque residues in arteries. It enhances blood flow and reduces the risk of CVS issues.

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, primarily found in the liver.  It is comprised of three amino acids (glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid) and acts as a magnet for toxins and free radicals, facilitating their elimination from the body. Glutathione dedicates its efforts to combating free radicals and revitalizing damaged cells, especially those affected by disease processes. Beyond this reparative function, Glutathione fosters the proliferation of mitochondria, rejuvenating aging cells and invigorating the immune system. Glutathione optimizes the function of white blood cells, both in quantity and effectiveness, stimulating the production and activity of natural killer (NK) cells. These dual mechanisms significantly enhance immune cell activity, synergizing the power of antioxidants with their functionality. This antioxidant excels in purging toxins from the liver, making it an excellent supportive therapy alongside various detox therapies.

Methylene Blue IV Therapy

In 1891, German physician, Paul Ehrlich, who later won a Nobel Prize, introduced Methylene Blue as a remedy for malaria.  He discovered that this dye had significant anti-parasitic and anti-microbial properties. Since his discovery, the uses for methylene have greatly expanded. Methylene is now used to effectively target a variety of health conditions including methemoglobinemia, chronic and acute viral infections, Lyme disease, parasitic infections, cancerous cells, dysfunctional cellular metabolism, and mitochondrial health. It is a powerful antioxidant that can help generate cellular energy, crucial for our cellular processes, physical activity, and metabolism. It intercepts superoxide and neutralizes it, preventing oxidative damage from taking place within the body. 

Methylene Blue enhances cellular respiration, optimizing oxygen use. This increases ATP production, providing extracellular energy for better cognition, mood, and memory. Methylene Blue rapidly breaches the blood-brain barrier, sparking an array of revitalizing effects. It enhances mitochondrial efficiency, acts as an antioxidant, and supports the health of brain cells, resulting in improved memory and mood. It turbocharges mitochondrial function at lower doses, boosts cerebral blood flow. Furthermore, the antimicrobial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic qualities of Methylene Blue enable it to be widely used in individuals with a host of chronic co-infections.
