IV Therapy

Intravenous Therapy at HealthBridge

img_IV_therapy-300x199

Are you ready to jump start your health, and let go of the toxicity that’s weighing you down? Here’s an amazing new way to get your vitamins, and discover the power in A NEW WAY TO AGE.

When you’re seriously ill, your digestive system may lack the energy to absorb and transport nutrients. Also, our ability to fully absorb and metabolize nutrients through digestion decreases as we age. Luckily, Intravenous (IV) therapy can help. IV therapy safely delivers high levels of vitamins and minerals directly into your blood stream through a vein in your arm or hand. One of the main advantages of IV therapy over oral vitamins is that the nutrients bypass the digestive tract, so they’re totally absorbed, providing higher concentrations and remarkable health benefits.

IV therapy can contain minerals, amino acids, glutathione, and popular vitamins like B and C. Combining various vitamins and detoxifying agents has been shown to boost blood flow, help maintain vital organ function, increase cellular energy production, and more. These positive effects can enhance your endurance, make you feel stronger, help your memory, reduce symptoms of stress and can even improve skin quality and help you look your best.

What Symptoms May Be Helped by IV Therapy?

IV therapy may help alleviate many symptoms of illness and diseases, including: the common cold, immune system issues, PMS, asthma, diabetes, hepatitis, hypertension, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other prolonged illnesses.

At HealthBridge we customize IV formulas based on your initial intake and blood test results and have one of our IV nurses visit patients at home to administer the therapy in comfort.   Call or email our office anytime for more information on this amazing adjunct treatment that supports optimal health and helps to prevent disease.

In health,

Dr. Gina

 


Large-scale Veterans Affairs study reaffirms safety and benefits of testosterone replacement, in men.

October 15, 2015

A US Veterans Affairs database study of more than 83,000 male subjects found that men whose low testosterone was restored to normal through gels, patches, or injections had a lower risk of heart attack, stroke, or death from any cause, versus similar men who were not treated. Rajat Barua and colleagues analyzed data collected on 83,010 male veterans with documented low total testosterone levels, dividing them into three clinical groups: those who were treated to the point where their total testosterone levels returned to normal (Group 1); those who were treated but without reaching normal (Group 2); and those who were untreated and remained at low levels (Group 3). Importantly, all three groups were “propensity matched” so the comparisons would be between men with similar health profiles. The researchers took into account a wide array of factors that might affect cardiovascular and overall risk. The average follow-up across the groups ranged from 4.6 to 6.2 years. The sharpest contrast emerged between Group 1 (those who were treated and attained normal levels) and Group 3 (those whose low testosterone went untreated). The treated men were 56% less likely to die during the follow-up period, 24%less likely to suffer a heart attack, and 36%less likely to have a stroke. The differences between Group 1 and Group 2 (those who were treated but did not attain normal levels) were similar but less pronounced. The study authors conclude that: “normalization of [total testosterone] levels after [testosterone replacement therapy] was associated with a significant reduction in all-cause mortality, [myocardial infarction], and stroke.”
Sharma R, Oni OA, Gupta K, Chen G, Sharma M, Dawn B, Sharma R, Parashara D, Savin VJ, Ambrose JA, Barua RS. “Normalization of testosterone level is associated with reduced incidence of myocardial infarction and mortality in men.” Eur Heart J. 2015 Aug 6. pii: ehv346.
