At Holtorf Medical Group, our doctors use a wide range of custom IV therapies that are individually tailored to the needs of each patient. Intravenous (IV) therapy is a method to deliver nutrients and therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream. Individuals with chronic illness, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM), Autoimmune disease and those with chronic infections (especially Lyme disease), often have functional nutritional deficiencies that compromise cellular function. These deficiencies affect the body’s ability to make energy and fight infections.
In certain individuals, oral supplementation may be unable to deliver nutrients to the cells for improvement in energy, pain, and immune function needed to attack bacteria, viruses, yeast or detoxification. High doses of nutrients and therapeutic agents are needed to improve cellular function which oral supplements cannot achieve due to gastrointestinal irritation, limitations of absorption within the gastrointestinal tract and the metabolic breakdown which occurs when passing through the liver.
When therapies are given intravenously (IV), without the limitations of oral supplements, these therapies are much more effective with major improvements often seen in a short period of time. Intravenous (IV) therapies are a great way to “jump-start” your treatment today. See just a few of the IV packages we offer below.
Additionally, we offer intravenous ozone therapy. Ozone Therapy is a unique and integrative treatment that is used to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. This is achieved through the process known as autohemotherapy, in which blood is drawn from a patient, exposed to ozone and re-injected intravenously (directly into the vein). The effects are shown to be both healing and detoxifying with its main purpose of suppressing infection and boosting the immune system. The history of Ozone Therapy dates back to the early 1950’s in Germany and has since gained recognition in the United States as more physicians are understanding its health benefits. Studies have shown that as part of an overall integrative treatment plan, it produces positive outcomes for treating a variety of conditions and illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic hepatitis, herpes, chemical sensitivities, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, colitis, and Crohn’s disease.
One of the fundamental underlying causes of all degenerative diseases, from diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer, is decreased mitochondria cellular energy production. Ozone has been found to correct this issue. Ozone Therapy stimulates the uptake of oxygen by stimulating the DPG enzyme. The DPG enzyme supports the release of oxygen from the hemoglobin molecule so that it can be used by the cell. When cells get the optimal amount of oxygen and function properly, they help to prevent or inhibit disease.
