IV Therapy

Why IV Therapy? 

Experience shows that a healthy diet and lifestyle will have a beneficial effect on chronic health problems.  After a thorough medical evaluation including questions about lifestyle, diet, and medication this information can be incorporated into a personal nutrition program based on current health and goals for the future, using a combination of diet, exercise and supplementation. 

Although most of our patients are well-educated and well-nourished, it is common to find that organic foods and taking organic supplements orally may not be enough.  High percentages of people are found deficient in vitamins and minerals, the building blocks of good health.  Lack of absorption and assimilation processes may be deficient in the gut. IV nutrition can add vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, and can support your body rapidly and efficiently and in much higher doses than orally,  until your body can thrive with a smaller amount.

Have you been experiencing symptoms over a prolonged period of time and have tried many different treatment methods but nothing seems to be helping?

If so, Intravenous therapies might be the answer you have been looking for. IV Therapy enhances the body’s ability to heal itself and maintain optimal health.  Mt Rainier uses IV Therapy to help with a variety of health challenges.

 What is EDTA Chelation Therapy?

The amino acid, ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetic acid (EDTA), is administered by slow intravenous infusion (drip) using a small gauge needle over several hours. EDTA binds to metals in the bloodstream and thereby helps to break up plaque and arteriosclerosis.

Properly administered EDTA IV Chelation therapy is an intravenous therapy performed in a doctor's office to treat and prevent:

  • Cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, cleroderma, and other age-related problems.
  • Improve metabolic function and increases blood flow; opening blocked arteries throughout the body thereby eliminating the need for costly and invasive heart bypass surgery.

What are the Benefits of Chelation Therapy?

Conditions that can be helped with EDTA chelation therapy are as follows:

  • coronary artery (heart) disease
  • angina pain
  • hypertension
  • diseases of aging
  • athero-ma
  • removal of free radicals
  • removal of toxic heavy metals
  • peripheral & cerebral vascular disease
