Does IV Hydration Therapy Work?
Over the last 15 years it has become very clear that IV treatments can help improve cold/flu symptoms, recovery, hangovers and fatigue. Some of our intravenous treatments are approved by the FDA for the treatment of conditions such as heavy metal poisoning, dehydration and nutritional deficiency. High dose intravenous vitamin C is currently being shown to be safe and effective in conjunction with conventional care for some cancers and Coronavirus.
At NatureMed clinic we offer IV therapy to patients and non patients. Intravenous hydration and vitamins are contraindicated in some medical conditions and therefore our non patient IV treatment options differ slightly. If you are interested in more treatments and would like to become a patient, please call our office at 303-884-7557.

IV hydration and vitamin therapy is very effective because it bypasses the gut, delivering hydration and vitamins directly into the bloodstream. Nutrients are forced into the cells at a much faster rate than would otherwise be possible.
In addition to treating dehydration and speeding recovery, IV therapy is helpful for cancer, viral infections, Parkinson’s, magnesium deficiency, hypertension, electrolyte disturbances, chronic fatigue and heavy metal poisoning.

HCL is a powerful white blood cell (WBC) stimulant and has been shown to increase neutrophils within hours and lasting for several days after treatment. Studies show its effectiveness in methicillin resistant staph aureus (MRSA), cystitis, bronchial infections, strep infections, kidney infections, and more.
In 1927, Dr. Burr Ferguson noticed that IV HCL stimulated WBCs and aided in fighting infections. For several years thereafter, he and a group of doctors in the United States wrote scientific articles about its usefulness and these were published in the medical journal, The Medical World. These articles were then put into a book that is available online called Three Years of HCL Therapy.
You may wonder, why is this not more common knowledge? Antibiotics were first widely used in the 1940s. The era of use of IV HCL was the pre-antibiotic era in medicine. Once antibiotics came out there was not much financial interest in the use of non-patentable IV treatments such as HCL and so it fell out of fashion. However, now that it has been successful in treating MRSA and other resistant infections, the use of HCL by IV administration is becoming more popular in mainstream medicine.
HCL works best when administered several times a week. We do push it very slowly and our staff is very well versed on the administration of HCL by IV.
