IV Therapies & Chelation

Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is the method of administering vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, amino acids, and other natural therapeutic substances directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract and liver, where many nutrients may be partially or fully lost. Intravenous Nutrient Therapy makes it possible to achieve much higher cellular levels of the specified nutrients, which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of many acute and chronic disease processes. There are a wide range of clinical conditions that can be successfully treated with intravenous nutrient therapy. See list below.

Dr. Lobe can recommend a formula based on your specific needs. Treatment times range from fifteen minutes for simple IV pushes, to an hour for various mixtures.

Myers IV
John Myers, MD, a physician from Baltimore, Maryland, pioneered the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins and minerals over 30 years ago as treatment for a variety of medical conditions. This potent solution contains a specially balanced combination of vitamins and minerals. A typical Myers’ Cocktail consists of magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-5 (dexpanthenol), vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B complex, and an average of 25 grams of Vitamin C. Myers Cocktail is famous for it’s immune system support and chronic fatigue support.

IV Therapy
Athletic Performance IV Dr. Lobe’s athletic support IVs include: 250, 500, or 1000ml partial saline to rehydrate fluid loss through sweating and water-soluble B-vitamins which are lost through strenuous exercise. Vitamin C and B-vitamins, and D-Ribose are needed in the Krebs' cycle to make ATP (energy) enhancing stamina and performance. Calcium, magnesium and other minerals will minimize muscle cramping and fatigue. Sodium, potassium, chloride and bicarbonate restore electrolyte balance often disrupted from prolonged sweating. Amino acids aid recovery and performance while Traumeel(TM) prevents and treats injuries and inflammation.
Intravenous therapies are incredibly effective and powerful because they replace lost and deficient nutrients quickly and directly into the bloodstream, restoring normal electrolyte and nutrition balance, bypassing any internal absorption issues.
IV therapy should be added to your workout and competitive routine. It will substantially increase stamina and performance, aid in recovery and significantly decrease down time.
A customized IV plan will be discussed including recommended dosages and frequency.

Chronic or Acute Dehydration
Intravenous Fluids Infusions containing saline, potassium and other electrolytes are available for patients with chronic or acute dehydration due to gastroenteritis or other conditions. Other intravenous therapies are available and can be prescribed by Dr. Lobe for a variety of other chronic conditions. Homeopathic additions for many different conditions can be included with several types of IV treatments. Specially designed formulas are currently used for a wide variety of conditions and treatments including the following:
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with or without Epstein-Barr virus
  • Acute viral illness/colds/flu
  • Acute or chronic muscle spasm
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches - often within minutes
  • Tension headaches
  • Narcotic withdrawal
  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • Acute of chronic asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Athletes for pre and post athletic events
  • Preoperative support
  • Postoperative support
  • Cancer (including individuals undergoing radiation or chemotherapy.)
Chelation Therapy
Chelation therapy removes toxic heavy metals including lead, mercury, arsenic, uranium, cadmium, aluminum, and many other environmental toxins that are attributed to many diseases including:
  • immune disorders
  • cognitive decline diseases
  • cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease
  • cancer, central nervous system disorders
  • and more
It is a well known fact that we are exposed to over 200 toxic chemicals every day. Chelation therapy detoxifies, unclogs vital detoxification pathways, and provides crucial nutrients vital for the human body.
