As human beings, most of us try to maintain our health through a balance of diet and exercise. However, sometimes no matter how healthy your lifestyle is, your body can’t utilize nutrition to the best of its abilities due to factors such as disease, food sensitivity, and immune deficiency.
Intravenous Therapy is a personalized form of therapy designed to give patients nutrients that they need. These nutrients, such as vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, magnesium, riboflavin, phosphatidylcholine, glutathione, heparcompositum, mucosa compositum, calcium EDTA, disodium EDTA, trace minerals, pyridoxine, ascorbic acid, pantothenic acid, alphalipoic acid, folate, amino acids, carotenoids, and fatty acids, help the body fight free radicals and increase longevity.
Also known as IV therapy, intravenous therapy occurs through the injection of medicine, vitamins and minerals into the general blood stream, with minimal or no side effects. Intravenous therapy is the most effective way for the body to receive nutrition necessary for utmost health due to its direct absorption in the bloodstream.

Specializing in alternative cancer treatments, Sanctuary Medical Center’s Dr. Mark Rosenberg is a firm believer in intravenous therapy as a method of either ridding a patient of their cancer or at the very least, slowing its progression. Studies dating back to the 1970s have shown that large doses of vitamin C can kill off different kinds of cancer cells while leaving normal cells unaffected. Since this time, many cancer patients have been treated with high doses of vitamin C as well as vitamin E, glutathione and alpha lipoic acids intravenously to combat the disease. High doses of vitamin C administered intravenously can also ease the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation for patients who seek the more common methods of curing their cancer. This leaves them feeling rejuvenated, energized and stronger due to the fact that intravenous therapy helps replenish the immune system.
