IV Glutathione Therapy

What is IV Glutathione Therapy?

IV Glutathione Therapy is the administration of Glutathione into the vein to provide needed amounts of this master anti-oxidant to your body's healing efforts.

How Does IV Glutathione Therapy Work?

Glutathione is a protein that your body makes and uses ubiquitously in human physiology. Glutathione is your body's master anti-oxidant. Oxidants are anything that cause inflammation. Too much inflammation damages and eventually destroys cells. Glutathione is used to nullify the damaging effects of toxins like alcohol or air pollution, bacteria, virus, fungus, parasite, etc. Anti-oxidants like Vitamin C and E and so forth all work by changing Glutathione back into the form that attaches to oxidants and escorts them out of the body in the form of feces or urine. The problem is that you can run out of Glutathione and when you do you see the diseases below. Replacing Glutathione has been shown in some cases to reverse diseases.

What Health Problems is IV Glutathione Therapy used for?

IV Glutathione Therapy is most commonly used for Multiple Sclerosis, AIDS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Atherosclerosis, pregnancy complications, male infertility and Cataracts. Glutathione is continuously defending our body against attacks from disease, toxins, poisons, viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress. Since Glutathione is a substance our bodies are very adept at using for any kind of stressor at all, IV Glutathione Therapy is extremely versatile in its application.

What Happens When I Go To Receive IV Glutathione Therapy At SynergyMed?

IV Glutathione Therapy Therapy is a low-stress experience. SynergyMed provides comfortable chairs for you to relax in during the therapy. You may nap, read, surf the internet or chat with other participants. IV Glutathione Therapy involves the intravenous (IV) infusion of Glutathione by our highly trained staff. Like all infusions, administering IV Glutathione Therapy into the bloodstream allows us to bypass normal digestion, absorption and liver filtering. IV Glutathione Therapy infusions last about 1 hour and are typically done on a weekly basis. Since the number of sessions is more important than the frequency, they can be done up to three times per week or spread out to twice per month. Clients who follow a more diffused schedule typically don't feel the benefits as directly as those able to come more frequently.

How Many Sessions of IV Glutathione Therapy will I need?

IV Glutathione Therapy typically requires 30 IV sessions over 4 - 7 months, followed by monthly maintenance. The number of sessions can vary based on your needs.

Is IV Glutathione Therapy Safe?

IV Glutathione Therapy has an excellent safety record when administered correctly. Our overseeing doctors are highly trained and with SynergyMed's attention to safety and protocol, side effects are rare.

Patrick J.D. Bouic, Ph.D - "No other antioxidant is as important to overall health as glutathione. It is the regenerator of immune cells and the most valuable detoxifying agent in the body. Low levels are associated with early aging and even death."

Dr. Paul Cheney - "Glutathione has potent anti-viral properties - if you raise the glutathione level you can stop the replication of most any, at least, intracellular pathogen....but glutathione deficiency produces a pro-viral effect."

Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD - " - "Healthy people also benefit from elevated glutathione levels through an enhanced ability to fight off toxins, infectious disease, pre-cancerous cells and the aging process itself. Many world-class athletes are discovering that well-maintained glutathione levels give them the edge over their competitors, bringing greater strength and endurance, decreased recovery time from injury, less muscle pain and fatigue, and muscle-promoting activity."
