High Dose Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy Benefits

30 October 2019

Hi everyone, in this article, we will be covering the benefits of high doses of vitamins, minerals and amino acids using IV Therapy. We will show why it is beneficial for Lyme disease, cancer and some other serious health conditions. As always we will back up our article with reviews of clinical trials by alternative medicine and conventional allopathic medicine.

We will use some of the mainstream information available, by renowned Doctors who have used massive doses of vitamins with amazing results to combat medical conditions. We’ll go back in history to find out when Vitamin IV drips began to be used as a possible answer to some illnesses.

Today a lot of well-known household names are having IV Vitamin Therapy. It has become quite trendy and one of the go-to alternative health procedures in the USA.

I suppose the question is does IV Therapy actually work or will it just produce expensive urine?

What is high dose IV vitamin therapy?

For many years, practitioners have used vitamin supplementation to help treat health conditions. I’m not saying here that dietary supplements are the answer to everyone’s prayers. But they can and do boost our immune system, help us absorb minerals, and at the right doses can improve health.

But why in this modern age of plenty do we need dietary supplements? Over the last 5 years, there have been stories about scurvy making a comeback which is basically inadequate levels of Vitamin C. this causes sore joints, bleeding gums and chronic fatigue like symptoms.

As I have written about before modern agriculture, processing, packaging, and cooking destroys the nutrient values of food. So, we do not get the essential amounts of vitamins and minerals we require to live a healthy life.

One of the best ways to get essential nutrients into our systems is by having IV therapy infusions because it enters our bloodstream it doesn’t need to be digested in the gut. This maximises the efficiency of the nutrients and therefore we have less expensive urine. Also, our gut couldn’t metabolise the high doses of say Vitamin C which at the doses we will discuss would cause a laxative effect.

IV therapy should always be administered by a trained medical expert, like a nurse or doctor. They insert a needle into a vein in the arm which is then attached to an IV drip bag, which contains the nutrient mix required for a vitamin infusion.

The Health Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy and Antioxidants

Antioxidants can stop oxidation. Oxidation produces free radicals which in turn can damage our cells. But what are these antioxidants? Here are a few we can use to great effect through IV Therapy;


Glutathione (GSH)

Glutathione (GSH) is the most abundant antioxidant in humans and has multiple functions. GSH reduces oxidative stress, and it is essential for the removal and detoxification of carcinogens, according to The Journal of Cell Biology. Another Journal this time the Journal of Cancer and Therapy said that glutathione deficiency, might lead to cancer. Various other studies have shown the benefits of GSH, these include arthritis, psoriasis, fatty liver disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, autism and many others.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)

A study in 2014 at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Vitamin C was given directly to humans and animals (mice). The Vitamin C helped kill the cancer cells while leaving the normal cells unharmed the researchers reported;

“In cell tissue and animal models of cancer, we saw when you add IV vitamin C it seems to augment the killing effect of chemotherapy drugs on cancer cells,” said study co-author Dr Jeanne Drisko, director of integrative medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

So what exactly does Vitamin C do? Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that can strengthen our natural defences. Vitamin C doesn’t kill infections, but it boosts your immune system.

Doctors like, Dr Fredrick Klenner (1907-1984), Prof. Linus Pauling (1901-1994), and Dr Robert Cathcart, gave huge doses to patients using IV therapy. Some of these doses were higher than 100g per treatment and achieved amazing results with no side effects. But these results are ignored by mainstream science.

Nowadays people like Dr Thomas Levy an American Cardiologist lectures about this fantastic nutrient. Dr Ron Hunninglake who runs what’s probably the world’s most knowledgeable Vitamin C clinic. They continue the work that their peers started.

Folic Acid ( B9)

Even the NHS accepts that women especially older adults require Folic Acid, because it’s important for the development of a healthy foetus, and reduces the chances of birth defects. However most women start taking Folic Acid after they’ve become pregnant, this is too late in the opinion of most functional Doctors. There are many other benefits for men and women to take Folic Acid.


Selenium works by neutralising free radicals and protecting cells. Selenium fights oxidative stress when in turn helps us fight chronic illnesses, like cancer and heart disease.


During severe infections like sepsis, Zinc deficiency can cause it to be amplified and potentially deadly. This is according to research scientists at Ohio State University. The immune system needs zinc to produce immune response proteins to fight against infections.

Here’s a list of some of the other nutrients available for IV therapy.

Vitamin Bs (B1,B2,B3,B6,B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folic Acid), B12, Vitamin C, Minerals – Magnesium, Calcium. Selenium, Zinc and others, Full Range of Amino Acids.

IV Therapy is an easy way to get targeted high doses of essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids into our bodies. This could be for a serious illness that requires some complementary antioxidant treatment, or recovery from illness or for a wellness boost.

I suppose the question is why do we need to take supplements at all? As I said above, soil depletion via industrial farming techniques, like fertilisers and pesticide spraying destroys the natural biology of crops.

GMO crops also have less nutritional values too. Processing takes away further nutrients. Then we cook the food, boiling, frying or roasting destroys a lot more of the nutrients. And microwaving, well, putting radiation into food brings nutritional values down to near zero.

So, by the time they end up on our plates they are devoid of many nutrients. We then become deficient in important essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids leaving us open to disease.

In fact, all of the deficiency symptoms of essential nutrients, are nearly all of the modern diseases we see today.

Must be another coincidence? Or Not.


Eat Well. Be Well.
