What We Offer: Intravenous Phospholipids


We know that many degenerative neurological diseases are caused and/or worsened by the presence of heavy metals in the body such as lead, mercury and aluminum. The use of pesticides, petroleum bi-products, plastics containing phthalates and other pollutants in the air, food and water, are also important factors that may cause or worsen these neurological diseases. 

Although we can safely remove most of these contaminants using techniques such as chelation therapy with intravenous disodium edetate, DMPS and/or vitamin C, along with a diet of organic food, we still have much to learn about how to regenerate body organs that have been affected adversely by these pollutants. 

This new technique consists of intravenous phospholipids as a key and essential component. 

What are phospholipids and how do they achieve regeneration of previously damaged and irritated nerve tissue (brain and nerves)? 

The cell membrane is composed mainly of four phospholipids, a special type of lipid or fat. These are: choline, ethanolamine, serine and inositol. 

Phospholipids are fatty components that keep the cell wall, or membrane, relatively waterproof. This helps control the flow of nutrients and waste materials in and out of the cell. 

Fatty acids (or a specific kind of fats) and phosphates are needed to form phospholipids (that is what the word phospholipids means: phosphate and lipids). The most common of these fatty acids are omega 3 and omega 6 which are linoleic acid and linolenic acid, respectively. These fatty acids are considered essential for humans because our bodies do not synthesize them. It has been scientifically proven that the optimum ratio in the diet of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is 4:1 (So, for every 4 parts of omega 6, one portion of omega 3). 

These components maintain the integrity of the cell membrane. If the membrane does not have these basic components, the cell protection decreases. This in turn decreases optimal cell functioning and leads to suboptimal function and/or disease. 

This is one of the reasons why an important part of our nutritional program is the intravenous administration of phosphatidylcholine, which is an important cell membrane phospholipid composed of omega 3, omega 6 and a phosphate group. 

The procedure consists of a series of injections containing phospholipids, glutathione (an intracellular antioxidant), folic acid and vitamin B12. All ingredients are natural and preservative free. 

The injections are usually given weekly, although in extreme cases, they are given more frequently.
