When patients have difficulties with gastrointestinal absorption of nutrients (poor digestion, aging) or more rapid results are desired due to the severity or chronic nature of the disease, intravenous nutritional treatments are available in our office. Dr. Goldstein will determine if any of our IV treatments are appropriate in your case. IV nutrients are never used alone, but as part of the treatment plan when appropriate.
Some of the IV therapy done in our office includes:
IV Vitamin C
This treatment is used to provide resources for tissue healing, detoxification, and for various infections- viral and bacterial
IV Magnesium / B-vitamins
This treatment is used to provide magnesium in cases where treatment is not being effective orally or results are needed more quickly. Magnesium helps headaches, muscle spasms, asthma, anxiety among many other symptoms.
This treatment is used in patients who have severely depleted iron stores and have difficulties absorbing or digesting iron or wish to see quicker resolution of their iron deficiency symptoms
This treatment is used as a benefit to brain and nerve cells and as part of a "phospholipid exchange" protocol aimed at treating neurotoxicity / fat soluble toxins.
This treatment is beneficial for detoxification, improved antioxidant protection. It is most often used as follow up to the phosphotidylcholine IV above (part of protocol) but can be used on its own. Dr. David Perlmutter has used IV glutathione in the treatment of neurological problems such as Parkinsons' Disease.
