K Wellness KIM RIVERA 455 S HUDSON STREET, SUITE 103 DENVER, CO 80246 303-667-2890 IV Nutrient Therapy What is IV Nutrient Therapy? o IV Nutrient Therapy is when vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream (intravenously infused) through an IV drip. It is a safe, powerful and innovative therapy that supports the resolution of numerous health problems such as infections, fatigue, and heart disease. What are the benefits of IV Nutrient Therapy? o Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function. By directly administering nutrients to the body higher than normal blood levels can be achieved. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state. IV Nutrient Therapy What conditions is IV Nutrient Therapy effective for? o Myer’s Cocktail The Myer’s Cocktail is an intravenous vitamin-and-mineral formula for the treatment of a wide range of clinical conditions. The modified “Myers’ cocktail,” which consists of magnesium, B vitamins, and vitamin C, has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders. o Glutathione Glutathione is a small molecule made up of three amino acids, which exists in almost every cell of the body. However, Glutathione, must be generated within the cell from its precursors before it can work effectively in the body. The presence of glutathione is required to maintain the normal function of the immune system. It is known to play a critical role in the multiplication of lymphocytes (the cells that mediate specific immunity) which occurs in the development of an effective immune response. Furthermore, the cells of the immune system produce many ox radicals as a result of their normal functioning, resulting in a need for higher concentrations of antioxidants than most cells. Glutathione plays a crucial role in fulfilling this requirement. Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) What is FSM? o FSM therapy is the use of specific minute amounts of electrical current which appear to stimulate cells to create ATP or “cell energy.” When this occurs your body becomes capable of using this self-healing energy to speed up and necessary corrections in damaged tissue. What is microcurrent? o Microcurrent is current in millionths of an ampere. An ampere is a measure of the movement of electrons past a point. Micro-amperage current is the same kind of current your body produces on its own within each cell. This is current in millionths of an amp. It is very small; there is not enough current to stimulate sensory nerves so the current flow cannot be felt. Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) What are the frequencies? o Frequencies are measure in hertz or pulses per second. The frequencies are used on two channels. The frequency thought to address or neutralize the condition is put on one channel, the frequency thought to address the tissue is put on the second channel. There are frequencies for over 200 conditions from very common conditions like inflammation, scar tissue, mineral deposits and toxicity, to very unusual and hard to document conditions like polio virus, arsenic poisoning, prolapse and subluxations. What can frequencies Treat? o The frequencies appear to change a verity of conditions and tissues and change pain and function in a large number of clinical conditions. FSM is especially good at treating nerve and muscle pain, reducing inflammation and dissolving scar tissue. There is a kind of fibromyalgia associated with neck trauma that is particularly painful and hard to treat even with narcotics. There is one frequency combination that, so far, has been 100% effective to take away kidney stone pain. The frequencies have created observed beneficial effects in asthma, liver dysfunction, irritable bowel and many other conditions. Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) What are the benefits of FSM? o Decreases cellular electrical resistance. o Improves oxygenation and cellular repair. o Reduces inflammatory chemicals in tissues. o Increases feel good endorphin levels. o Increases cell energy (ATP) levels by up to 500%. o Boosts protein synthesis by 70%. o Restores depleted adrenal function. o Repairs the regulation of nervous tissue o Boosts immune function. o Accelerates healing of acute injuries up to 200%. PRP/PRF Rejuvenating Cream What is it? o PRP/PRF rejuvenating cream is a product created to aid in the healing process, rejuvenation of the skin, and aids in scar tissue break up. How PRP/PRF rejuvenating cream works. o By drawing your blood and removing the collagen, fibrin, and growth factors, it is then infused into an all natural, hypoallergenic cream where you apply as needed to the effected areas of concern. The benefits of using PRP/PRF rejuvenating cream. o PRP/PRF rejuvenating creams benefits a number of conditions such as, skin disorders, lifting and tightening of the skin, promotes a healthy skin rejuvenating process, and aids in the break up of scar tissue by rubbing into the effected areas. It has also been shown to aid in soothing of skin break outs (ie: insect bites, acne, burns, rashes, and allergic reactions.) PRP/PPP Wound Healing What is PRP/PRF Wound Healing? o It is an Autologous Processed Malleable Gel or spray. (Depending upon surgeons preference & clinical procedure), That contains the patients own concentrated Platelets, Leukocytes, and Growth Factors that are shown to vastly improve the entire healing process. What are the benefits of PRP/PPP wound healing. o 1. PRP and PPP accelerate the tissue and bone regeneration via concentrated platelets, growth Factors, and leukocytes. o 2. PRP increases wound healing by Increasing the autologous growth factors by 300%-700% directly at the site. By placing a membrane at the wound site, it activates a sealing process that allows for a quicker healing time. o 3. Platelet gel decreases the probability of infection by 80%. Bactericidal factors and leukocytes fight off bacteria and viral pathogens directly at the wound site. o 4. PRP/PPP reduces post operative surgical adhesions and decreases the build up of scar tissue. o 5. PRP/PPP decreases surgical pain and increases range of motion. *Orthopedics July 2006 international Journal of Orthopedics, PRP in total knee arthroplasty. o 6. PRP/PPP is safe and been shown to be effective. By utilizing the patients own blood it gives no risk for rejection at the wound site.
