DETOX IV:

Detoxify your liver and increase your energy, memory and focus with the power of phosphatidylcholine and glutathione.

About This IV

2_detoxivDo you feel run down? Fatigued? Exhausted? Do you have a hard time focusing or feel your memory slipping? Have your weight loss attempts stalled despite your best efforts?

Your body could be overrun with toxins—a wide variety of noxious molecules that are keeping sick, tired, depressed, and overweight.

Detoxification is certainly as important as popular media would have you believe, the problem is most programs go about detoxifying the wrong way…

Ultimately, it’s all about supporting your liver—the workhorse of your detoxification system and one of the most important organs in the body. When it’s overburdened your liver can’t do its job properly. Provide your liver the nutritional support it needs to function optimally with this IV. When you do, you may also experience increased energy and focus as a result of higher acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter) levels that come from the phosphatidylcholine in this treatment.

Detox Mini IV

The “Detox Mini IV” provides smaller doses of PC and Glutathione than it’s larger cousin the “Detox IV“. It is a quick 15 minute infusion for those on the go who still want to try this energizing and cleansing treatment.

Science

We hear about the latest “detox” diet, program or trend in the media practically every day. But what does “detoxification” really mean? Does it work? And if so, how do you properly “detoxify” your body?

Your body converts all types of substances into less toxic “metabolites”—molecules that are byproducts of normal metabolism. These substances are then eliminated via bile and urine. However, when it comes to particularly toxic foreign substances—from Tylenol to alcohol to heavy metals to pesticides and more—special processes are needed.

This is where your liver comes in. It is responsible for “conjugating” or modifying these toxic foreign substances so that they can be safely excreted from your system.

Like any of us, your poor liver can’t do its job as well when it’s overworked. When too many toxins enter your body at one time, the liver stores them for later excretion. But since we are constantly bombarded by toxic substances it never gets around to the job. So the toxins remain in your body, which can lead to long-term health complications.

This is especially likely to happen if you are fatigued, stressed out, suffer from fatty liver, drink large quantities of alcohol, smoke, or suffer from other toxic exposures. Your liver also gets overworked when you are on an active weight loss program since heavy metals and toxic organic compounds accumulate in fat and are released into circulation as the fat is lost.

Making sure that your liver is functioning optimally is crucial. And the good news is that you can give your liver a helping hand in its war on toxins. This IV is a perfect way to do that.

We start with phosphatidylcholine (PC), an abundant natural compound found in all cell membranes, and the chief molecule that forms the protective barrier around your cell and mitochondrial membranes.

These membranes (along with fat deposits) may store much of the toxic load in our body. They also allow transport of substances in and out of the cell and mitochondria. So you can see why giving them the support they need is so important.

We also add in a little glutathione (GSH)—the body’s master antioxidant. GSH attaches to toxic substances like heavy metals and xenobiotics to help neutralize them until they are eliminated.

Use this IV to support healthy liver function. It’s an ideal therapy if you are stressed out, fatigued, have “brain fog”, have difficulty concentrating,if you smoke or drink, or if you are on an active weight loss program. In addition to the health benefits of improved liver function you may also experience increased energy and focus as a result of higher acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter) levels when you undergo this treatment.

  • Hi My name is Babbett, I am a nurse anesthetist, and I am here with Dr. Popa getting an IV. Two years ago I came down with an un-diagnosable illness and after multiple, multiple tests we discovered I had high levels of heavy metals in my body. I have been treating these high heavy metal levels with IV therapy and I have had a compete turnaround in my symptoms. I am feeling 100% better now. I continue do IV nutritional treatments with minerals, B vitamins and Glutathione at IV for Life in Orange County probably once a month to just maintain my health. I have been re-tested for the heavy metals and they are slowly but surely getting lower and lower. I am very pleased with this outcome and these treatments are very easy to do. I just make an appointment and come in when I have time. The IV catheter is very small and it is painless going in…then I just sit and relax in a recliner while the IV is dripping. I highly recommend it to anyone.
