At San Francisco Natural Medicine, intravenous nutritional therapy (IVNT) is one of our most useful and popular therapies. Our doctors use IVNT to replenish nutrients in people with chronic illness or absorption problems, to support and strengthen the immune response, to help fight infection, to support people with cancer and a host of other health issues and concerns. One of the most common formulas we use is high-dose vitamin C (HDIVC). Mixed with a few other minerals and at times B-Vitamins, these IVs contain large amounts of vitamin C, ranging from 10 grams to up to 100 grams, which have therapeutic effects that are unobtainable using oral doses. HDIVC is useful in a number of health conditions, but by far the most common application is supporting people who are fighting cancer to provide immune support as well as its observed anti-cancer effects.
The doctors at SFNM support an integrative approach to cancer care and we will continue to monitor research like this so we can better serve our patients using the latest research findings.Read More
