The IVitamin Clinic focuses on administering treatments that improve the quality of life (QOL) of people suffering from chronic illnesses along with the overall health and wellness of people looking to supplement their vitamin and mineral intake. Our experienced team uses extensive R&D and clinical testing to work in partnership with local authorities in bringing higher standards of living to people. High dose vitamin injections, particularly Vitamin C, can significantly improve the lives of patients suffering from chronic fatigue, dengue fever, as well as those undergoing radiation therapy and adjuvant chemotherapy.
The opportunity lies in scientifically evidencing the mechanism of action of the Vitamin C effects, the most appropriate dosages to use, and the duration of the effects observed.
IV treatments first came to prominence through the Myers cocktail in the 1960’s and has recently grown in popularity through dedicated clinics in the UK, USA, and Australia. The science is quite simple, vitamins and minerals are injected directly into the bloodstream by passing the digestive tract that does not ensure the body absorbs 100% of nutrients.
Our current research efforts focus on QOL improvements in cancer and terminally ill patients. These interventional studies are addressing QOL changes after IV injection of varying doses of Vitamin C (0.2-1 g/kg body weight), with a special emphasis on changes in the level of fatigue experienced.
The studies are designed to investigate the pharmacokinetics and duration of Vitamin C effects, which addresses the most appropriate treatment regimes to be used. (QOL questionnaires FACT-G and/ or EORTC QLQ-C30) are correlated with pharmacokinetic studies to plasma ascorbate levels with observed QOLchanges. Our studies are paving the way for standardizing complementary Vitamin treatments in chronically and terminally ill patients.
