IV Nutrients Success Stories


Out of His Wheelchair With IV Glutathione

It’s difficult to believe the dramatic effects of IV glutathione unless you witness them yourself. Hugh, who attended the Back to Health Program at the Whitaker Wellness Institute, underwent three treatments during the week that he was here, arriving for his first treatment in a wheelchair and exhibiting a significant tremor in his left arm. By his second treatment, the tremor in his left arm had decreased, and his wife reported that he was much more mentally alert.

Hugh’s subsequent progress borders on miraculous. He walked into the clinic for his third treatment without the wheelchair, although his gait was a bit unsteady and he held his arms stiffly at his sides. Twenty minutes afterwards, however, Hugh was walking around the clinic, arms swinging, the tremor in his left arm completely gone. Hugh’s mood, mental sharpness and energy level have improved so much since he returned home that he has resumed his law practice!

Immune Drip Nips Colds, Flu in the Bud

Whenever I feel like I’m starting to come down with a cold or flu, I head over to the Whitaker Wellness Institute for an IV immune drip. It contains high doses of vitamin C, which improves immune function. Believe it or not, I feel better almost immediately, and rarely does the “bug” get the best of me. My children (late teens, early 20s) also go to the clinic for immune drips, and they have the same experience.

IVs Halt Macular Degeneration

Bill E. was diagnosed with macular degeneration at the age of 80. His ophthalmologist told him it was a progressive disease and there wasn’t much he could do. Bill wasn’t ready to accept this prognosis, so he came to my clinic. We started him on a comprehensive nutritional supplement regimen, and a series of intravenous (IV) treatments, including vitamins, minerals, and taurine.

He noted improvement right away. Bill said the most noticeable thing was that he could read the fractions in the stock price quotes in the newspaper, which he couldn’t before. At his annual exam, his ophthalmologist was stunned to find that his visual acuity had actually improved! Bill continued to get monthly IV treatments and his vision remained stable.

IV Nutrients Tackle Chronic Fatigue

I first saw Holly when she was 44 years old. She had been active and athletic most of her adult life and worked full time until she contracted acute mononucleosis. This put her in bed for six weeks. Now, she was extremely fatigued, almost bedridden, and was unable to work in an office environment, working at home a couple of hours a day. Aerobics and tennis were out; shopping exhausted her.

The difficulty most physicians have trying to help patients with chronic fatigue is that it is rarely caused by a single problem. Obvious reasons for fatigue such as anemia, low thyroid function, or some other specific disease are sometimes found, but for the most part, excessive fatigue is a mystery. When this happens, many physicians wash their hands of patients and refer them to a psychiatrist.

When fatigue is a major problem, therapeutic nutrition makes a lot of sense, and it certainly worked for Holly. I started her on intravenous nutrients, including large amounts of vitamin C, B complex (100 mg) with an additional 200 mg of thiamine, minerals, and trace elements. I also started giving her oral nutritional supplements, including coenzyme Q10, l-carnitine, vitamins, and minerals, as well as injections of vitamin B-12 two to four times a month.

Holly had been “down” for 18 months, but began to respond almost immediately. She was soon working in her office six hours a days, shopping four times a week without exhaustion, and was active the full day. Her employers welcomed her back with a major project to develop, work on, and complete. She continued her intravenous nutrients, as well as oral supplementation, and before long she was not only working a full week, but weekends as well, and she began traveling extensively for her company.

She stopped the IV nutrients some months ago, but continues to take her oral supplements and feels that her level of functioning is back to normal.

IV Magnesium Restored Normal Heart Rhythm

Chuck, an 18-year-old patient of mine, was an avid biker who routinely rode his mountain bike in the hills of Southern California. This is an arduous sport that requires huge energy expenditures and results in copious sweating, especially when temperatures start to climb.

During his rides, Chuck would occasionally notice his heart beating irregularly and sometimes skipping a beat altogether. One day, his heartbeat became so out of whack that he could no longer pedal, and his friends had to drag him back into town.

When he showed up at my office the next day, I took his pulse and found that his heart was skipping every second or third beat. An EKG confirmed my suspicion—Chuck was experiencing ventricular arrhythmia. Strenuous exercise had obviously depleted Chuck of electrolytes, and I was particularly concerned about his level of magnesium. So we replenished his fluids and administered intravenous (IV) magnesium. His arrhythmia stopped immediately. After an hour of observation with no more skipped beats, we sent him home and told him to come back in a few days. When Chuck returned, his heartbeat was normal, and he was back to mountain biking again in no time.

Update: Three-Year Remission Milestone

I was at Whitaker Wellness for two weeks in November of 2010 and wanted to provide this update. I just passed three years of complete healing. I recently had a CT scan and all was clear “as expected”. I thank God for His total healing in which the Whitaker Wellness Institute played a key role.

IV Vitamin C Helps Cancer

I am now about eleven months out from attending your clinic for two weeks of therapy. I came to your facility with no hope from my doctors at home and at one of the country’s top cancer treatment centers. My diagnosis was stage four melanoma, and the cancer had metastasized from my neck lymph nodes, which were removed, to my liver. All that the doctors relayed to me was that the therapies offered would be able to lengthen my life “a little” but there was no curative treatment available. They basically gave me no hope at all. I was encouraged to participate in so many different trial treatments and drug therapies but refused to do so.

I am a man of prayer and deep faith, so I got on my knees and asked God for a plan of action.  On the top of the list was vitamin C infusions. I did a lot of research and decided to come out to the Whitaker Wellness Institute for two weeks for treatment. The doctors at the clinic helped me get on a better nutritional path, along with receiving IV vitamin C, hyperbaric oxygen treatments, and nutritional supplements.

After leaving the clinic, I have continued the vitamin C treatments locally along with Cyberknife radiation treatments. Two weeks ago I received the news that my last PET scan is completely clear of any indication of cancer! I praise God for that! The doctors are totally amazed and have used the terms “kind of like a miracle…Amazing…This doesn’t happen with melanoma… I would not have given you a year to live and look at your report” and so on.

The staff and doctors at the Whitaker Wellness Institute played a key role in the healing of my body from a horrific and terminal disease. I thank all of you for your diligence in treating those given little or no hope by conventional medicine.
