IV Vitamin Therapy

Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine uses IV Vitamin Therapy as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Not only does it help restore energy and vigor to those in good health, it can also provide relief for those with chronic pain and illnesses such as fibromyalgia, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Why Is IV Vitamin Therapy Beneficial?

IV Vitamin Therapy is a vitamin supplement introduced intravenously into the bloodstream. By bypassing your digestive system, the nutrients are absorbed by your body more rapidly than traditional oral supplements. This provides your body with increased cell function and a marked increase in energy to help with health problems such as:
  • Weight Problems
  • Tiredness
  • Fatigue
  • Sleeping Problems
  • Cancer Care
  • Chronic Infections
  • Chronic Pain/Fibromyalgia
  • Intestinal Dysfunction
  • Lyme Disease
  • Headaches
  • Leaky Gut/Yeast
  • And more!
Our IV Vitamin Therapy patients often tell us, “I felt great after just one treatment! I can’t wait to see what I’ll experience after more.” We’re happy to help you increase your energy safely and much more effectively than traditional supplement use.

What Vitamin and Minerals Are Contained in This Formula?

Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine uses the Meyer’s cocktail formula, as well as custom nutrient blends based on patients’ specific needs. This therapy consists of an effective, specialized mixture of both vitamins and minerals. Some of the common nutrients we use in IV therapy are:
  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • vitamin B-5
  • vitamin B-6
  • vitamin B-12
  • vitamin B complex 100
  • vitamin C
  • glutathione
  • zinc
  • lipoic acid
  • chromium
Each of these vitamins and minerals produce a specific response in your body, such as increased energy and metabolism, cell regeneration, or enhanced disease-fighting responses.

How Is It Administered?

All ingredients are mixed with sterile water, placed in an IV bag, and administered over about 15-90 minutes through IV. Many of our patients receive this therapy one or two times per week to experience and then maintain improvement. Some patients have renewed energy and focus after only one treatment, while those with chronic health problems may begin to feel an improvement after the first few weeks.

High Dose Vitamin C for Cancer - Patient Testimonial

Plaquex Therapy The Use of Intravenous Phosphatidyl Choline-Plaquex Therapy for Vascular Disease Introduction: Plaquex is a mixture of essential phospholipids (lecithins or Phosphatidyl Cholines) made from soy beans. It is a new treatment from Europe for atherosclerosis - the deposit of fatty plaques in arteries and other blood vessels. The most important effect of Plaquex is its remarkable ability to reduce plaque deposition in the artery wall. It also lowers blood cholesterol and homocysteine levels.

Studies in lab animals have shown that it increases life span by up to 36%. An important therapeutic application of Plaquex treatment is increasing the hearts ability to withstand stress. This application is valuable for individuals who have suffered from heart attack or other heart injury.

The "atherosclerotic plaque" that blocks an artery is composed of many constituents, but in general has two main ones, namely cholesterol and calcium. When treated with chelation therapy the calcium is addressed. Plaquex addresses the cholesterol component. The cholesterol involved in blocking arteries is the infamous "LDL or 'bad' cholesterol."

The "good" HDL cholesterol seems to actually help reverse the negative effects of LDL (bad) cholesterol. The chief constituent of good HDL cholesterol is "Phosphatidyl Choline," also called Plaquex.

It is important that patients understand that Plaquex is usually not used as a substitute for EDTA chelation therapy, but is added to the treatment of some patients that would benefit for the effects of Plaquex. Plaquex cannot be mixed with EDTA chelation, so it is given on alternate treatment days.

Unlike chelation using EDTA, Plaquex does not remove toxic heavy metals (ie Lead, Cadmium, Mercury). Instead, it appears to reverse cholesterol transport by creating surrogate HDL cholesterol which aids in the removal of excess LDL (bad) cholesterol from the arteries and also appears to lower the level of the highly atherogenic lipoprotein a (aka Lp(a). In addition, while EDTA chelation can only be used sparingly in the presence of reduced kidney function, Plaquex actually seems to improve or stabilize kidney function in those with pre-existing kidney disease.

Mechanism of Action - How Does it Work? Plaquex appears to aid in the removal of excess cholesterol from the membranes of cells and, along with existing HDL ("good") cholesterol, aids in the transport of free cholesterol from deposits in arteries, fat cells, muscle and connective tissue to the liver, where its excretion is enhanced.

It also appears to lower the level of substance Lipoprotein a (Lp(a), which is a critical factor in the formation of blood clots during heart attack or stroke.

Treatment Applications It has now been established by European researchers that Plaquex therapy has the following therapeutic applications: - Reduces angina pectoris (heart pain) - Improves sexual potency - Lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol - Reduces high blood pressure - Increases HDL (good) cholesterol - Improves impaired kidney function - Improves walking distance in PVD* - Reduces homocysteine levels - Improves memory and mental function - Protects damaged heart muscle *PVD = Peripheral Vascular Disease Treatment Administration Plaquex therapy is administered as an intravenous infusion lasting 90 to 120 minutes. Since Plaquex cannot be mixed with EDTA Chelation, other chelating agents, hydrogen peroxide, medical Ozone or Vitamins/Minerals it is administered as a single agent. Plaquex therapy can be used as a stand alone treatment for lowering blood cholesterol, improving kidney function and/or improving memory.

Plaquex can also be used as part of an integrated treatment program for atherosclerosis, along with EDTA Chelation therapy, Hydrogen Peroxide, Medical Ozone and Orthomolecular Vitamins and Minerals. Not every chelation physician offers Plaquex therapy.

Because we try to remain at the forefront of treating degenerative vascular diseases with integrative methods we offer Plaquex therapy as an added regimen to EDTA Chelation, Bio-Oxidation and Orthomolecular therapies. Check with our office professionals to determine if Plaquex may be useful or helpful for your particular condition.
