A: Every person and situation are different.Depending on your condition, how many IVs, what nutrients used, and the frequency given will vary. For example, working to fix an auto-immune disease which would take several dozen IVs to overhaul the body is different than battling a common cold, which might only need one or two.
A: Your current state of health and the ability of your body to manage such aggressive treatment like an IV, also determines how you will feel post treatment.
Again, in the case of a severe cold, you can expect to feel accelerated healing, and the cold to last only for a day or two versus the usual 7-10 days. You will likely feel your symptoms subsiding within a few hours of getting an IV. Many patients report feeling better before finishing the IV treatment. You may experience an increase in energy and focus with a decrease in pain and discomfort.
A: If you are fortunate enough to have discovered Nutritional IV Therapy for a more severe condition like cancer, auto-immune or Lyme disease, then the healing process can be much more interesting and not as straightforward. Take comfort in knowing there is no limit to the benefits of Nutritional IV Therapy and your body will always be better for it.
If you are dealing with a serious condition, Nutritional IV Therapy will create and instigate changes that cannot come about any other way. Opposite of pharmaceuticals likely prescribed for your condition, Nutritional IV does not breakdown the natural ecosystem or biome of your body. It is very unlikely it will do damage to your system, and in fact, has enormous potential to be one of the best therapies that will eradicate your condition long-term. However, receiving dozens or even hundreds of Nutritional IV’s as you face this unfortunate health challenge may not come without its ups and downs.
A: Nutritional IV Therapy can engage and activate your immune system very rapidly, stimulating biological changes almost immediately, "stirring up" pathogens, toxins, viruses, etc., shocking the system after many years of suppression by a chronic condition. When this happens, it is possible to see positive changes, maybe small incremental changes, but change none-the-less. The changes can be more energy for a short period, a reduction in symptoms or even better sleep. Some patients describe it as if “the fog has lifted."
Note: we say "short period" or "short window" because when dealing with conditions that have been developing and worsening over a period of years, it is unrealistic to think one or two IV treatments will instantly change things long-term. However, any change is VERY encouraging, and with each short period of improvement, over and over, compounding and building, pretty soon you’ll start to see those improvements stick around much longer until it becomes your new normal.
A: Along with the positive changes, you will notice some challenges. Some challenges may even seem like setbacks. It's not always a straight, smooth road to healing. In fact, with chronic disease, it's unlikely. So part of healing is a battle of patience, perseverance, and consistency. If you do experience some adverse effects from an IV, such as a headache, joint pain, dizziness, nausea, weakness, or anything else significant, communicate with your doctor. Most of the time this is your body detoxing toxins. However, efficient communication will help make sure that you are on the best road to recovery.
A: Yes. Each IV bag can be tweaked or modified to be custom for you and your sensitivities, symptoms, and current needs. Trust your doctor to know what to do. Making sure to communicate exactly how you are feeling is important. In fact, keeping a journal or writing down how you feel after each IV would be helpful as well.
A: Eat a balanced meal (including protein) in preparation for each IV will minimize the change in your blood sugar that may happen during treatment. Also, bringing a light snack and a form of hydration for the duration of the treatment works well.
A: As your body processes the ingredients in your IV, you may notice as light odor or unusual new color to your urine for a time.
You may also experience flu-like symptoms (i.e.excess mucous in your lungs, nose, and throat, some achiness, changes in your skin) which are an indication of detoxification. Your body’s primary detox organs are the kidneys, liver, colon, lungs, andskin. Notify your doctor if you do not have a bowel movement within 24 hours of an IV treatment.
Getting rid of dead or toxic waste and carnage advances you further on the path to good health and wellness. Drink plenty of water, as this will flush toxins more rapidly. Also, your doctor may give you some detoxing supplements. At home, one of the best ways to get relief from detoxing symptoms like fever, joint pain, and headache, is to take a ginger and Epson Salt bath. Rebounding and lymphatic massage can also alleviate detox symptoms quicker.
Listen to your body and rest. The most substantial healing occurs when you are sleeping.
A: Ozone therapies involve administering small amounts of diluted ozone into the body for the prevention and treatment of disease. Ozone therapy has been used by licensed physicians in Germany since the early 1960’s.
A: The philosophy behind oxidative therapies is a simple one. The use of ozone in medicine is based on the belief that the accumulation of toxins in the body is normally burnt up by the process of oxidation, a process wherein a substance is changed chemically because of the effect of oxygen on it. Oxidation breaks the toxins down into carbon dioxide and water, and eliminates them from the body. However, if the oxygen system of the body is weak or deficient (whether through lack of exercise, environmental pollution, poor diet, smoking, or improper breathing), our bodies cannot eliminate them adequately and a toxic reaction can occur. In minor cases, a toxic buildup can lead to fatigue, while a wide range of diseases can result when poor oxygenation is chronic.
A: Although few of us have ever heard of them, ozone therapies have been around for a long time. They have been used clinically by European physicians for over a century, and were first reported by Dr. T.H. Oliver in the British medical publication The Lancet in 1920. Since that time, they have been studied in major medical research centers throughout the world, including Baylor University, Yale University, The University of California (Los Angeles) and Harvard University in the United States, as well as in medical schools and laboratories in Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Russia, Canada, Japan and Cuba. Today, there are many scientific articles are published each month about the chemical and biological effects of ozone.
A: Bio-oxidative therapies are used to provide the body with active forms of oxygen orally, intravenously or through the skin. Once in the body, the ozone breaks down into various oxygen subspecies which contact anaerobic viruses and microbes i.e. viruses and microbes which have the ability to live without air, as well as diseased or deficient tissue cells. It oxidizes these cells while leaving the healthy cells alone. When the body becomes saturated with these special forms of oxygen, it reaches a state of purity wherein disease microorganisms are killed, while the underlying toxicity is oxidized and eliminated. According to Frank Shallenberger, M.D., who is best known in the United States for treating AIDS patients with a holistic protocol including ozone, bio-oxidative therapies have affect the human body in the following ways:
A: Ozone (O3) is an energized form of oxygen with extra electrons. It forms the protective ozone layer around the planet, yet becomes a pollutant when mixed with hydrocarbons (like carbon dioxide) and nitrogen oxide from automobile and factory emissions. Because scientists have focused on the negative effects of inhaled ozone, the medicinal aspects of the gas when applied intravenously or through the skin have been largely overlooked.
Because ozone was found to be an effective bactericide and fungicide during the mid-1800’s, it was first used to purify drinking water in a number of European cities. Today, over 2000 municipalities around the world- including Montreal, Paris, Los Angeles and Moscow- purify their drinking water with ozone. However, ozone was not used medically until 1915, when it was found to be an effective disinfectant of wounds and skin diseases in Germany during the First World War. It was later found that ozone has the ability to “blast” holes through the membranes of viruses, yeasts, bacteria and abnormal tissue cells and therefore killing them. Ozone was the focus of considerable research in Germany during the 1930’s where it was successfully used to treat patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disorders, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and chronic bacterial diarrhea. The four primary ways to administer medical ozone include: Autohemotherapy, which involves removing about one half pint of blood from the patient, adding ozone and oxygen to the blood, and infusing the blood back to the patient.
A: Ozone therapies offer a tremendous range of medical applications. According to the International Bio-Oxidative Medical Foundation (IBOMF), an Oklahoma-based organization devoted to research and education about these therapies, the following conditions or diseases have been treated with ozone to varying degrees of success:
A: Obviously not, but it is a phenomenal therapy with almost no side affects.
Migraine headaches – 60-80% helped.
Non-healing wounds – 90+%
Thrombophlebitis – 3 times the walking distance improvement
Bronchial Asthma – 72% respond favorably ….. etc.
Read the synopsis of studies in Ken Dillon’s book – Healing Photons – The Science and Art of Blood Irradiation Therapy.
A: This is such an important question, we have answered it separately. Look at the other FAQ drop down boxes.
A: We use BioPhotonic Therapy because in today’s environment the name radiation often means isotopes or radioactive ions. This treatment is with UVC / UVA light …just the extended wave length of natural light.
A: Not at this time. You are responsible for payment at the time of the therapy.
A: Many “alternative” medicines are supported by weak science and a handful of glowing testimonies. Read the studies and see that this falls into a completely different category.
A: There are a lot of positive body responses to BPT that will help to bolster the immune system in its own defense against cancer. To date there have not been studies that conclusively show its affect with cancer. There are some glowing testimonials on its help. As an adjunct therapy it certainly should be considered. It seems to have the affect of reducing the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. For others there has been complete remission.
A: It has been shown to be effective in treating HIV, reducing viral loads and reducing symptoms. See www.Harrismed.com for on-going studies and data.
A: Great question. Sometimes therapies have an area that accomplishes the task…feeling better, more stable, reduction of problems and symptoms without giving us a complete answer to “How”? BPT has the ability to modulate or destroy the activated T-4 cells that drive such syndromes. Results have certainly varied but many have found significant improvement. See a PhD look at BPT: “The transfusion of UV irradiated blood in the organism causes rearrangement of the immune status, the trends and depth of which depends of its initial condition. In case of normal functioning of immune system the influence of extracorporeal UBI is not detected, in case of hyperfunction of certain elements – suppressive effect and finally normalization of the immune response of the organism is recorded.”
A: This depends on the clinic. There should always be a doctor as a director and qualified individuals doing the procedure.
A: Again, this depends on the clinic. UBI or BPT treatment carried out by a qualified, certified RN or phlebotomists is the rule. Individual clinics will customize their approach.
A: How many medical studies have you read on alternative medicines, supplements, etc? This therapy has a 70 yr history and over 140 published medical studies on record for over 60 diseases.
A: Talk to the staff about what drugs you are taking and the therapy. For the vast majority of medicines, BPT will complement their action or work around it to benefit you in spite of the drug action.
A: You and your Dr will have to be the judge of that. In most of the studies, after BPT drug amounts were lowered.
A: Partially because all the therapy does is “encourage” the body to cure itself. With good antibody production, improved blood function, improved circulation and normalizing of toxins the body takes care of itself.
A: See our page under Therapy Info
A: That is up to you. Many Doctors today are open to “alternative” treatments as long as there is no harm in taking that treatment.
A: Since there are virtually no side effects treatments can go on for years if needed. There have been reports of over 20 yrs of treatments with BPT and no adverse side effects.
A: Depending on your condition and what initial treatments were for, a maintenance program of 2-4 treatments per year is quite normal
A: The UVC light is well know to disable the replication mechanism of bacteria, virus, fungus and even parasites. It does this by breaking the strands of DNA needed for replication. The cell is then dead.
A: No. The cell wall of healthy blood cells are quite thick and of course there is no DNA. Blood cells are made in the bone marrow. This treatment actually affects the increased production of healthy red blood cells. It also improves blood viscosity and oxygen carrying function.
