The Master Antioxidant – Glutathione

The Master Antioxidant – Glutathione

Glutathione is an amazing antioxidant. The best delivery of this is through intravenous therapy, but you can also ingest the antioxidant.
Our bodies use Antioxidants in order to prevent our body from “rusting” or becoming damaged by oxygen.  Oxygen is obviously important for our bodies to live, but interestingly can also be damaging to our bodies.

Glutathione benefits those that are at risk of or who have:

* Macular degeneration
* Challenges with Skin health
* Heart health problems
* Need Nervous system support (against Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s)

Here is a Glutathione boosting shake that you can take in the mornings or after a workout:

  • Dream Whey Protein- 1 scoop
  • 1 cup Almond milk or rice milk (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries or blackberries or peaches
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 ice cubes
  • handful of spinach, kale or chard
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon or turmeric
Blend and enjoy outside in the backyard for the last of our summer days.

IV Therapy and Cancer

IV Therapy and Cancer

Many studies regarding IV therapy and cancer have been made over the years with the following results shown:

  • Treatment with high-dose vitamin C (ascorbic acid) slowed the growth and spread of liver, colon, prostage and other types of cancer cells.
  • High-dose vitamin C with varous types of chemotherapy may be more effective than chemotherapy alone
  • Ascorbic acid with arsenic trioxide may be more effective in ovarian cancer.
  • Vitamin C combined with gemcitabine may be more effective in treating pancreatic cancer
  • Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine may be more effective in treating malignant mesothelioma cells.
  • Futhermore, IV ascorbic acid has been shown in some studies to help patients to have complete remission after a series of high dose treatments. 


IV versus Oral ascorbic acid:

Some people might ask:

Why would I do IV vitamin C when I can take it orally?

The answer:

the use of high dose provides the most positive results. It is also impossible to take the same dose orally (IV treatments can range from 10 grams to 100 grams/treatment).

Examples of some studies regarding IV therapy and Cancer

High-Dose Parenteral Ascorbate Enhanced Chemosensitivity of Ovarian Cancer and Reduced Toxicity of Chemotherapy 

Improving quality of life 

Vitamin C for immune health and anti-cancer

2 studies show that high dose intravenous vitamin C can kill cancer cells via producing hydrogen peroxide. The discussions also highlight the following:
High dose vitamin C lowers risk of metastasis or spreading
High dose vitamin lowers tumour size
High dose vitamin C lowers inflammation and
increases the quality of life

Fertility and IV vitamin therapy

Trying to get pregnant and need a fresh approach?
IV vitamin therapy or infusions are the most direct way of delivering nutrients right to the cells of your body. Sometimes due to various conditions such as celiac disease or malabsorption syndromes, the body is deficient in important nutrients that are essential for fertility.
Deficiencies can also occur on individuals who engage in high intensity training or sport.
Both men and women can benefit from this treatment.
