INTRAVENOUS AND INTRAMUSCULAR THERAPIES

Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy
Anubha has offered intravenous vitamin C  since 1988 for the management of acute viral infections
including herpes -cold sores (Herpes 1), genital herpes (Herpes 2), adult Chicken Pox (Herpes 3),
Glandular Fever (Herpes IV), Cytomegalovirus (Herpes V); the 'flu viruses', Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
supportive treatment in the management of cancer, auto-immune diseases and other conditions. The
injection appears to stimulate endogenous immune function.

Recent publications by Riordan and colleagues suggest that vitamin C may kill cancer cells by acting as a
pro-drug in that it is converted to hydrogen peroxide. This pro-oxidantive effect is now well established
but only occurs with high dose intravenous vitamin C Therapy. Vitamin C blood levels from oral Vitamin
C  is limited by the absorptive capacity of the intestinal mucosa, liver and kidney mechanisms which is
tightly controlled genetically by the sodium-dependant Vitamin C transporter (SVCT) genes. Oral
vitamin C cannot reach high enough blood levels to convert to hydrogen peroxide and remains an
antioxidant. Intravenous C appears to improve energy in CFS patients.

Intravenous Vitamin B Therapy
Intravenous vitamin B has been found helpful in states of aesthenia / exhaustion and stress as well as
specific deficiencies of B group vitamins. Various B group vitamins assist in energy production.  
Riboflavin (Vit B2) is a precursor for FAD (flavin adenenine dinucleotide) an intermediary hydrogen
carrier in the formation of ATP. Vitamin B3 or (nicotinamide) is a precursor for NADH (nicotinamide
adenine dinucleotide hydrogen) an essential co-factor in the formation of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate)  
our biological energy.

Intravenous Glutathione Therapy
Patients suffering from glutathione deficiency respond to intravenous glutathione.  Glutathione protects
against  free radicals damage and cell membrane instability due to environmental pollutants.  
Glutathione has been found to regulate protein and DNA biosynthesis, cell growth and it enhances
immunologic function through it's effects on lymphocytes.  
           

This treatment may  be applicable in states of oxidative stress. Oral glutathione therapy may not raise
glutathione levels. However Glutathione in its reduced form given intravenously may effectively raise
blood glutathione levels and act as a powerful antioxidant in the management of conditions of
accelerated  oxidative
stress   
                                                                                                                     


Intramuscular Vitamin B12 Therapy
Vitamin B12 has been used intramuscular for decades for the management of aesthenia syndromes
(physical or emotional exhaustion and stress) as well as for B12 deficiency. New forms of vitamin B12
offer higher bioavailability and effectiveness.
